Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. The aperture is the opening through which the camera gets its view. What "f-stop" aperture setting of the following is the largest?

Answer: f / 2.8

An aperture setting of f/2.8 is much larger than f/22. Each step in aperture size doubles or halves the amount of light that the camera receives through the aperture.
2. The shutter and aperture of the digital camera control the amount of light. What shutter speed setting will make the picture darkest?

Answer: 1 / 1000

1 /1000 of a second is the shortest shutter speed on most cameras. This will make the picture darkest. Changes in shutter speed are measured in stops (equivalent to one aperture step). A 1/2 shutter speed is one stop darker than a 1 second shutter speed.
3. The ISO setting measures the sensitivity of the image sensor in the camera. What ISO setting is used for the highest sensitivity?

Answer: 1600

An ISO setting of 1600 is the most sensitive. Higher settings are used for darker situations to get faster shutter speeds. However this results in noisier shots. A n ISO of 100 is for normal daylight, 200 to 800 are often used indoors.
4. An automatic digital camera often uses modes. What mode setting would you best use when you use a tripod and take scenic pictures outside during a vacation?

Answer: Landscape

When using the Landscape mode setting, you select a small aperture, a slower shutter speed and a tripod is recommended. Other modes are optimized for other photographic conditions.
5. The aperture, the shutter speed and the sensitivity are all a part of the so-called exposure triangle. On the digital camera, what component ensures these settings will result in a properly exposed picture?

Answer: light meter

The light meter is what measures the light intensity and adjusts the three settings of aperture size, shutter speed and sensitivity. Automatic settings on digital cameras do not necessarily require adjustment of the light meter as with the manual settings.
6. In manual mode, light meter readings can be a negative or positive value. A negative value on the light meter indicates what type of exposure for a photograph (on a Nikon camera)?

Answer: underexposure

The light meter is used to find the proper exposure of a photo. The light meter tells you what shutter speed and f-number are used for certain lighting and senitivity conditions.
7. Digital cameras often have an automatic setting for white balance. What is the color temperature range for the AWB setting for most photographic conditions?

Answer: 4000-7000K

Some examples of color temperature settings for the digital camera are listed as answers. 10000-15000K is the white balance setting for a deep blue clear sky. 6500K is the white balance setting for an overcast sky. 1500K is the white balance setting for candle light. The automatic white balance setting (AWB) is 4000-7000K for most photographic conditions.
8. What type of digital camera lens setting do you use for a long focal length to your subject?

Answer: telephoto lens

Telephoto lenses have the longest focal length. Wide angle lenses have a shorter focal length. Panoramic lenses are wide angle lenses. Standard lenses have a medium focal length in comparison.
9. Lens have different focal lengths. What is the zoom lens called when it maintains focus with a change in focal length?

Answer: parfocal lens

The zoom lens that maintains focus with focal length is a parfocal lens. A lens with a fixed focal length is called a prime lens. A zoom lens with varifocal lens loses focus during zooming. The standard lens is usually a fixed focal length, which is a similar angle of view to the human eye.
10. Now we need to focus the camera. What focusing method is best for static subjects such as still life and landscapes but tends to fail on moving subjects?

Answer: automatic focusing

With autofocus setting (focus set on automatic) the camera detects, with either contrast sensors or outside sensors, the subject at a distance to focus for the photo. However this takes time and the distance needs to remain constant for autofocus to give good results.
