    An exposure with a shutter speed of 1/100sec and an aperture of f8 lets the same amount of light into the camera as which of the following?

    • A.

      1/1000sec at f5.6

    • B.

      1/50sec at f11

    • C.

      1/2sec at f8

    • D.

      1/60sec at f22

    • E.

      1sec at f11

    Correct Answer
    B. 1/50sec at f11
    Explanation
    An exposure with a shutter speed of 1/100sec and an aperture of f8 lets the same amount of light into the camera as 1/50sec at f11. This is because when the shutter speed is doubled from 1/100sec to 1/50sec, the exposure time is increased, allowing more light to enter the camera. Similarly, when the aperture is increased from f8 to f11, the aperture size is reduced, which also allows less light to enter the camera. Therefore, the combination of a longer shutter speed and a smaller aperture compensates for each other, resulting in the same amount of light reaching the camera sensor.

    Correct Answer
    B. 18mm
    Explanation

This setting is often used by experienced photographers who want precise control over their images.
