Images were made at 12 different f-stops
For a different type of shot of boat fishermen, preset your camera to the correct shutter speed, f-stop
, and distance, and hold it out over the water to shoot back toward the boat as a fellow angler casts or lands a fish.
When shopping for any lens, take note of its f-stop
. The f-stop
is a measurement of the diameter of the aperture, expressed as a fraction (f/1.4, f/3.5, and so on).
The InFocus M810's primary camera houses a 13-megapixel Sony Exmor R CMOS sensor with f-stop
number of f/2.2, coupled with dual-LED flash.
"But it's not trying to look like them." Instead, Fujifilm elected to return to analog controls (an F-stop
lens ring, a roller wheel for the shutter speed) since these are what serious photographers prefer.
While shutter speeds are simple fractions of a second, the f-stop
is the focal length of the lens divided by the diameter of its opening (f/stop = A/FL).
The biggest advantage on set is that the light does not have to be adapted when switching lenses because they all have the same F-Stop
. The lens speed is ideal for playing with the depth-of-field.
Then the display goes north of the Tyne to f-Stop
Gallery in Byker, Newcastle, where it can be viewed from June 23 to August 5.
Digital SLRs and many pocket point-and-shoot cameras allow you manual control over aperture (f-stop
) and shutter speed--settings which affect exposure.
Photographers know that by reducing the diameter of the aperture in the lens (increasing the f-stop
) they can increase the amount of the image that is in focus.
I had to put myself on a strict photo training regimen--taking notes, shooting tons of test rolls and buckling down to figure out exactly what the "F" of an F-stop
He had a concussion from a brick thrown at him during the melee between Chinese protesters and soldiers, and he'd borrowed the film in his camera, and his f-stop
setting was wrong for the film he was using, and he was exhausted and horrified by two days of murder and mayhem in the world's largest public square, where students protesting China's junta were being mangled and trampled by the army.
