LED's (Light-Emitting Diode) are taking over.


 Hi Photographer friends,

Digital cameras and peripherals  are often equipped with some LED  (Light-Emitting Diode) like the Pentax Optio camera above. The LED type of lighting is now used for everything. I was just thinking last night when I went to bed, my entire house is no longer completely dark at night. We used to plug in night lights so we wouldn't walk into a wall. 

Well, our house is not dark at night anymore. In my bedroom alone, I have two computers,(one iMac and a PC) plus a laptop that I leave plugged-in. Count the alarm clock, the external drives, the monitors, the room is bright enough from all the LED's to see around. In the living room, the flat screen, the sound system are emitting light as well, the kitchen has the microwave and the stove and even the refrigerator has a green LED for the ice maker.

The only place that there are no LED is in the bathroom, which is usually why we get up during the night to begin with
