Poll: Is it time to redefine 'exposure'?
Sep 20, 2013

The 'Manual of Photography' (formerly the 'Ilford Manual of Photography'), first published 1890, defines 'exposure' in the following way:

The relation between exposure E, illumination I and exposure time t is expressed by the equation E=I.t.

It seems that in every thread here discussing exposure, this definition is disputed by people who claim to be speaking for the majority of photographers. Does this mean that we should democratise the word 'exposure'. Your views are sought.

The definition of 'exposure' should be changed to align with the views of those on these forums that claim to speak for the majority of photographers.

The definition of 'exposure' should stay the same as it has been since 1890 (or earlier).
