    Okay forgive me if im wrong, but a full stop is like 100% of light right? So if you ever expose by a full stop you are doubling the light that is hitting the sensor?

    Shutter and Aperture on most cameras are adjusted up or down normally by 1/3 stops or sometimes 1/2 stops right? Also when you bump the ISO (doubling the number) you are bumping the exposure up a full stop. Ex: 100 -> 200 -> 400 etc...

    A full stop for shutter is from 1/250 to 1/500 for example or 1/500 to 1/1000 or 1/1000 to 1/2000

    Unless I am mistaken 1 full stop is either 1/2 or 2x the light depending on what direction you go, of course.
