A Tedious Explanation of the f/stop by Matthew Cole Photographers set their exposure using a combination of shutter speeds and f/stops to get the correct amount of light on the sensor (or film). The shutter speed regulates how long the sensor is exposed to light coming through the lens. The f/stop regulates how much light is allowed through the lens by varying the size of the hole the light comes through.

Camera raw, DNG : Digital Negative (DNG) Raw file formats are extremely popular in digital photography workflows because they offer creative professionals greater creative control. However, cameras can use many different raw formats — the specifications for which are not publicly available — which means that not every raw file can be read by a variety of software applications. As a result, the use of these proprietary raw files as a long-term archival solution carries risk, and sharing these files across complex workflows is even more challenging. The solution to this is Digital Negative (DNG), a publicly available archival format for the raw files generated by digital cameras. By addressing the lack of an open standard for the raw files created by individual camera models, DNG helps ensure that photographers will be able to access their files in the future.
Field of View Crop Factor (Focal Length Multiplier) With the advent of Digital SLR Camera Bodies, the term Field of View Crop Factor has come into our world. The source of this term is the smaller-than-35mm sensor present in many of Canon and other manufacturers' DSLR sensors. Canon's EF Lenses still focus the image on the same plane as before, but sensors smaller than 35mm sensors do not capture the entire image. Thus, the image is "cropped". The Field of View Crop Factor (FOVCF from here on) refers to the amount of the image that is cropped.

Believe it or not, this is determined by just three camera settings: aperture, ISO and shutter speed (the "exposure triangle"). Mastering their use is an essential part of developing an intuition for photography. Achieving the correct exposure is a lot like collecting rain in a bucket.
