Lecture 16: Cameras and Lenses (47)

Are F-Number and F-Stop the same/interchangeable?


@kristinechen8 I interpreted it as the F-stops are the specifically fixed F-Numbers for camera lenses so that 1 stop increase equals double the exposure.


From my brief research, according to Wikipedia an f-stop is a specific f-number that the camera is traditionally adjusted to in discrete steps.
