Risk

The uncertainty associated with any investment. That is, risk is the possibility that the actual return on an investment will be different from its expected return. A vitally important concept in finance is the idea that an investment that carries a higher risk has the potential of a higher return. For example, a zero-risk investment, such as a U.S. Treasury security, has a low rate of return, while a stock in a start-up has the potential to make an investor very wealthy, but also the potential to lose one's entire investment. Certain types of risk are easier to quantify than others. To the extent that risk is quantifiable, it is generally calculated as the standard deviation on an investment's average return.

Changes that occur with editing of portrait photographs are however higher for some primary colours of additive and subtractive synthesis (Table 4), especially at high ISO speed (most for the C, R, G and B at photographs taken with ISO 3200/36 and what is highest for R where is the colour difference between shot and edited photographs higher from the border acceptability ([DELTA][E.
Observers also had to determine which ISO speed was used while shooting (by the experience of the gained effect in the classical photography systems).
The PowerShot SX50 HS includes Canon's HS SYSTEM where the camera's image processor and CMOS image sensor work together to enhance low-light image quality at a maximum ISO speed of 6400.
Designed by our Japan design center to provide the highest image quality possible, our new APS-C format sensor delivers the maximum signal-to-noise ratio across all scene lighting and ISO speed conditions," said Junichi Nakamura, Aptina's Japan Design Center Director.
The EOS-1D Mark IV camera's ISO speed settings range from 100 up to 12,800 in 1/3 or 1/2 stop increments with ISO Expansion settings of L: 50 for bright light or H1: 25,600, H2: 51,200, and H3: 102,400 for even the most dimly lit situations.
While Live View is engaged, users can still change settings including the AF mode (Quick, Live, Face Detection Live mode), drive mode, ISO speed, Picture style, White Balance and more.
It pairs the technology from the 1800s with conventional 200 or 400 ISO speed film that can be developed anywhere 35 mm film is processed.
Additionally, the processor's high ISO speed noise reduction processing has improved substantially to enable consumers to shoot high-quality images, even in extremely dark situations without the use of a flash.
