  Exposure Value (EV)
 Exposure Value (EV)
The exposure value is determined by the sensitiv-
ity of the image sensor and the amount of light to 
which the sensor is exposed.  Doubling the amount 
increases EV by one, while halving it reduces EV by 
one.  The amount of light entering the camera can be 
controlled by adjusting aperture and shutter speed.
