    How a camera works.

  • The Body

  • LensImage quality is greatly affected by the quality of the lens.

    There are many types of lenses, but most fit into two categories: fixed focal length or zoom

    Most cameras contain lenses which are comprised of several "lens elements."

  • ApertureThe aperture is a small set of blades, in the lens, that controls how much light will enter the camera.

    Aperture sizes are measured in f/stops.

  • ShutterA shutter on a camera controls how long light will enter.

    Very short shutter speeds are used to freeze action (sporting events).

    Very long shutter speeds are used to intentionally blur a action for artistic effect.

    Shutter speed is one of the three pillars of photography.
