Great basic aperature info for people learning how to use "real" cameras. My best tip is to remember that it's backwards from what you think it should be. The bigger the f-stop number, the smaller the opening. Summary is the f-stop affects depth of field (how far away objects can be and still remain in focus) and the amount of light you let in. Smaller f-stop = more blur, more light.
