F stop difference calculation / normalization question
Oct 19, 2013

Hello everyone,

Am I correct in assuming the following:

We have two exposures:

  • Exposure 1: 298s, ISO 1600, f3.5

and

  • Exposure 2: 112s, ISO 1250, f2

What is the difference between them in f stops?

I started by inserting the f stops and exposure times here:

http://imaginatorium.org/stuff/stops.htm

Unless I am mistaken the exposure 2 is 0.2029 stops (we'll round it to 0,2 stops) brighter based on the f stop and exposure time.

Then there is the ISO difference, meaning that the exposure 2 is 0,3 stops less than exposure 1.

So, if we want to normalize the exposure difference, we will need to increase the exposure 2 by 0,1 stops

Is this correct?

Thanks a lot!

ps. tried asking this in the astrophoto forum, but no answers.
