What Is Exposure Value

You’ve seen it on some web sites where instead of giving the shutter speed and aperture used to take a picture, the exposure value (EV) is given instead.

But for those who like to use their camera in Manual mode, Rod Lawton, of, has made available a free download of his handy Exposure Value Guide.
