At this point in the history of imaging technology, digital cameras draw recognisable visual patterns in their pixel renditions of an optical image, there where not enough light is gathered in time to describe a subject faithfully on their sensors. It is usually referred to as noise, possibly taking cue from the ‘signal-to-noise’ dichotomy in audio recording.
