focal ratio, f number, stop number, speed(noun)
the ratio of the focal length to the diameter of a (camera) lens system
The focal ratio, also known as f-number, f-stop, or relative aperture, is a dimensionless number that quantifies the ratio of the focal length of a lens to the diameter of the entrance pupil or aperture. It is a measure of lens speed, describing the brightness of the image that will be formed for a given exposure time. A smaller f-number denotes a larger aperture, which allows more light to reach the image sensor, ideal for low-light conditions. Conversely, a larger f-number denotes a smaller aperture, providing a wider depth of field.
