    I have a video and article about smartphone cameras: "Everything you need to know about how your smartphone's camera works, from lens to apertures to sensor sizes and megapixels."

    Hi Gary, in the camera settings I can see something like 1/100,1/200,1/300. What do those numbers mean?

    If you could show me a screenshot that would help, but my initial guess is that those are the shutter speeds, which are expressed as a faction of a second.

    Hi Gary! So are the shutter speed and exposure the same thing or there is a shutter speed and there is an exposure? Because I understood that shutter speed controls exposure but you can tweak exposure without changing shutter speed right? I mean there is exposure separately from shutter speed right?
