Hello everyone, I'm a photographer and am developing a project in which I'm needing some help. I went to some engineers friends first but they told me Physicians would be the ones who would have the answers I need. I'd like to know how can I interfere in the way my camera's sensor registers the photons it receives, but it's important for the work's concept that I do not make any modifications to the camera body. I thought about causing some sort of disruption with magnetic fields, but I've been told there's no way to do it without completely wrecking the camera. I wouldn't mind if it was altered permanently, but if it cannot create a final image it would be useless. I'm not trying to achieve any effect in particular, the goal of the project is to discover what the images would look like if the camera was affected by an external force that did not alter it's body (at least not in a way our eyes could capture). If there are any suggestions or alternatives, I would be more than glad to hear them. My knowledge on physics is close to none, so I'm sure there's a lot that could be done which I simply have no idea of. Thanks in advance for those of you who take your time to help me out! ___________________________________________________________________________________ Here's an explanation how the sensor work: http://www.astropix.com/HTML/I_ASTROP/HOW.HTM And a brief description: A digital camera takes light and focuses it via the lens onto a sensor made out of silicon. It is made up of a grid of tiny photosites that are sensitive to light. Each photosite is usually called a pixel, a contraction of "picture element". There are millions of these individual pixels in the sensor of a DSLR camera. Each photosite on a CCD or CMOS chip is composed of a light-sensitive area made of crystal silicon in a photodiode which absorbs photons and releases electrons through the photoelectric effect. The electrons are stored in a well as an electrical charge that is accumulated over the length of the exposure. The charge that is generated is proportional to the number of photons that hit the sensor. This electric charge is then transferred and converted to an analog voltage that is amplified and then sent to an Analog to Digital Converter where it is digitized (turned into a number).
