Depth of Field in Photography

Deep Depth of Field, this results in an image that is reasonably sharp from the foreground to the background. Using a narrow aperture, such as f/11, is ideal to keep photographs of landscapes or groups in focus throughout.

A factor to consider when working with depth of field is your distance from the subject. The farther you are from the subject you are focusing on the greater the depth of field in your photograph. For example, if you stand in your front yard to take a photo of tree a block away, it has a deep depth of field with the tree, background, and foreground all in relatively sharp focus. If you stand in the same spot and take a picture of your dog that is standing just several feet
away, your dog is in focus, but that tree a block away is just a blur of color.

Small f-number means wider aperature opening

A small f-stop such as f/2.8, for example, opens the lens so more light reaches the sensor. If you have a wide aperture (opening), the amount of time the shutter needs to stay open to let light into the camera decreases.
Big f-number may be used in landscape photography as it provides depth of field.
Remember it is a reciprocal relation, big number means small opening, small number means big opening.
With big opening you can photograph more details.

How to recognise a fake memory card ?

As fake memory cards do exist today in the marketplace. and we use lots of memory cards in our Digital Camera, Mobile phones,etc...

Determining a Fake Memory Card
Unfortunately there is no software which will test the card, and ensure that it's genuine. You must manually scrutinise your card, (both visually and by testing it's performance), to get some idea of it's genuinity.

Build Quality helps to determine fake memory cards

First thing to look for is poorly printed labels and material; most fake cards have slight differences from the real deal. Most manufacturers have a page where you can download high resolution pictures of their cards. Below is a list of manufacturer image page links:

Example of fake 1GB Sandisk SD Card

This particular card was also missing a notch, making it quite easy to spot:

Note there is no serial on the bottom of the fake (serial blurred on the real one):

Note the fake box has no hologram:
