f-number

Saltos de línea: f-number

Definición de f-number en inglés:

sustantivo

Photography
The ratio of the focal length of a camera lens to the diameter of the aperture being used for a particular shot (e.g. f8, indicating that the focal length is eight times the diameter).
Example sentences
  • The f-numbers marked on a lens are only truly accurate when the lens is focused at infinity.
  • All these f-numbers, focal lengths, film speeds and apertures are actually really simple to get to grips with once you understand how they relate to each other and to the finished picture.
  • The higher f-numbers mean the diameter of the lens can be smaller, so the lens, using only 20% to 25% as much material, will cost less and weigh less.

Origen

early 20th century: from f (denoting the focal length) and number.
