Do lenses with the same f-stop but different focal length gather the same amount of light? [duplicate]
I'm taking images of a light source in a scientific labratory, and I thought I had a good grasp on all these things, but now i'm second guessing myself after some results. The most important thing is ...
I don't quite understand why most lenses seem to have approximately the same diameter aperture regardless of focal length. F-stop is, by definition, a ratio of focal length to diameter, so a 20mm ...
So I'm looking at the wikipedia article on Aperture, and I'm a bit confused. I understand aperture to be the diameter of the hole that lets light in. In the article, someone states that The ...
I've heard that focal length of some lenses will become noticeably longer when focusing to a close distance, an effect called "focus breathing". Since f-number is focal length divided by diameter of ...
