    humm could you help me? so far, I can't understand a lot...I usually understand written english very well, but the words used here are specific. Thery're already complicated in french so in nglish....Anyone who can speak a little french who could explain things? Or just explain in english

    aperture semm to be "la focale". when you write it f/2.8 for example. is that right?
    now...how do you "un objectif"? you know the thing in front of the camera with a zoom.
    and "la vitesse d'obturation"? that's the speed at which the diaphragm opens and closes. (hell I'm sorry, usually my english is not that bad in general discussion but here...I feel terrible XD)
    I understand overexposed and the opposite is?
    well contrast's not difficult to understand... do you use ISO, too? that's the sensitivity to light...
    to shoot means to take a picture ok...
    the flash, I think that's an english word so no problem here...


    well if you could help me with that, it'd be great. if I have more questions, I'll ask =)

    The aperture is the opening of the iris in the lens...perhaps it's "L'acte de l'ouverture." And yes, it's referred to with the 'F number'

    The lens?

    We call that the 'Shutter Speed'

    Underexposure
    Oui

    Bonjour Sangria, bienvenue dans les forums!

    Here is a quick dictionary style listing of the various camera / photography terms in french

    Forum absolut photo • Afficher le sujet - Dictionnaire photographique: termes généraux et abréviations

    Pour répondre à tes questions plus précisemment:

    Focale: we refer to this as the focal lenght. The zoom capability of your lens. These are normally refered to as "mm" such as a 24mm-70mm or a 50mm lens.
    Alors c'est la capacité de "zoom" de ton objectif. Normalement exprimé en milimètre.

    What you were referring to that is often seen as an f/ number (f/2.8 or such) is le diaphragme or what is called in english the aperture.

    Objectif: this is in fact the lens. Aussi connue comme lentille, mais le terme correcte est objectif

    Vitesse d'obturation: as BigMike said, its the shutter speed. The shutter known as l'obturateur

    J'espère que ceci t'aide!

    - Pierre
