Apollo Camera
Why are cameras on Apollo 11 is so bad?

Why the quality of television transmission aboard Apollo 11 is so bad? its so blurry, fuzzy, gray and distorted. but were able to take many photographs in color at high resolution. Why not the video quality is so clear as the camera?

Well, for starters, the term "high resolution" is probably not what you're thinking with respect to the photographs. These were taken with a good old-fashioned film (and yes, the film has a resolution, but this is much higher than Digital Cameras), while the video was taken with digital cameras. Think about it – the time television was filmed in studios with cameras mounted on large dolleys. portable cameras were very large and carried on the shoulder, with other teams around the waist belt packs bulky. This standard technology would be: a) difficult manage to say the least, with all the other gear that astronauts had to use b) loss of weight – each pound taken a hard time in terms of fuel. Grumen engineers actually got rid of the chairs in the lander just to save on weight. Astronauts flew while standing. So more had to do – Digital Camera technology is more or less invented or at least a place in the early production work of Apollo model. The technology was so again that the CCD was only black and white. To produce color images, the cameras have a color wheel in them, which quickly turned red green filters and blue in front of the CCD, and 3 frames are combined into a color frame. That's why you see a "rainbow effect" on the edges of white objects that the chamber moves fast. (And that's also why DLP projectors and TV can have the rainbow effect). So in short – the technology used in the Camera Video brought in Apollo 11 was new, while film cameras used to take still photos was incredible and perfected in the last hundred years. (See photos taken of the cowboys in the West in the 19th century – is not all that bright or clear about the modern, right?) EDIT: Apollo 12 was to be the first color, a higher quality Video Camera, but Al Bean accidentally pointed the Sun, which damaged the camera and there is a good video was sent back live. Apoll 13 did not land on the moon. It was not until 14 that a better quality of live color video was available. (This was the fate that appears Al Pastor famous golf shot)
