I have a Canon AE-1 film camera. It works well and I've several FD, FL and Vivitar lenses. For recent digital cameras, I know how the light meter works. However, with this old camera, I would shed ...
Why do the following two lenses provide different amount of light? In both images we have fixed focusing distance, distance to the object, ISO, shutter speed and F-number.
T-stop measures actual light transmission in a lens. Therefore, different f/2.8 lenses can have different T-stops. T-stops are usually only given for cine lenses. For photography lenses, is there any ...
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 ...
When we say a light source emits 1500 lumens of light, it does not really matter if the light source is incandescent, CFL, diode etc. Similarly, when I say f/1.8 can I assume that all lenses pass the ...
Possible Duplicates: What exactly determines depth of field? Technically, why is the out of focus area blurred more when using a bigger aperture? It is obvious that the aperture affects ...
How does one cancel out extra light while clicking a photo? Is decreasing the aperture a better option, or using a faster shutter speed? What are other options we could try?
