  15. The fraction of aperture or f-stop is focal length divided by lens diameter.
  16. Fast lenses have a bigger maximum aperture.
  17. ​Larger aperture means a shallower depth of field.
  18. Longer lenses appear to have a shallower depth of field because they are magnifying the subject.
  19. A lens is defined with mount, prime/zoom, series​, maximum aperture, and focal length.
  20. ​DSLR cameras use the kelvin temperature numerical value to adjust how colors look.
