A byte can represent 256 (= 28) different sequences of zeros and ones. These can be the numbers of 0 to 255, 256 characters, or, for example, 256 gray levels. A kilobyte (kB) equals 1024 such units of information. A megabyte is equal to 1024x1024 or 1,048,576 bytes. A digitizer with a 4-bit resolution can thus convert the analog signals produced by the photo sensor into 16 digital values, allowing 16 gray levels to be distinguished.

These are generally sold in sets of three and can be used individually or in combination. The shorter the focal length of the lens, the stronger their effect is; for our purposes, this is not an advantage, since we use longer focal length lenses (Fig. 26). Because the light must travel further to reach the sensor, there can be a loss of up to two stops. The subject-to-camera distance is also reduced, although not as much as in using close-up lenses. It is also no longer possible to focus on infinity.

The subject-to-camera distance is also reduced, although not as much as in using close-up lenses. It is also no longer possible to focus on infinity. The use of extension tubes is not very practical, since it is no longer possible to infinitely vary the magnification.
