    Camera Action Edit

    From the turning on of a camera to turning off my computer. What a world we live in that i can turn on my camera as i find the appropriate framing of a shot through the view finder. In the blink of my eye i press the button and magic happens instantly from the live view through the lens onto the sensor then transformed in digital date and stored onto a device which i then remove and transfer my photographic images on another device embedded in my computer.
