Aperture

The lens opening formed by the iris diaphragm inside the lens. This opening can change in diameter to control the amount of light reaching the camera’s sensor as a picture is taken.

The aperture diameter is expressed in f-stops; the lower the number, the larger the aperture. For instance, the aperture opening, when set to f/2.8, is larger than at f/8.
