F-Stop vs T-Stop

What’s the F? Lenses for stills photography are described in terms of focal length and F-Stops. The smaller the F-Stop number, the bigger the aperture of the lens and so more light gets to the camera’s sensor. As well as more light reaching the sensor, a large aperture (small F Stop) also gives a shallower depth of field which creates defocused backgrounds which have always been popular in portrait photography.

Graphics cards installed in laptops tend to be low caffeine versions of high power desktop adapters. And some desktop computers have fairly modest graphics cards that are hard-wired and cannot be upgraded in the usual plug and play way. If you’re browsing the Internet or creating spreadsheets, this isn’t a big deal. But if you’re a gamer, video editor, colourist or 3D designer, you’re going to need a much stronger brew.
