Photobet Soup

Just an exercise in silliness today, but I thought I would share some of the acronyms that I’ve learned in this zany field of photography.  Let’s see how many we can come up with collectively.  Do you know all the acronyms seen here?  Know some more?  Sound off in the comments with your own contributions and let’s see if we can get the whole alphabet!  Here’s my starter set:


That’s just off the top of my head too, so I know there’s gotta be more out there!  This is 76 acronyms that are related to photography…can you identify them all?  Do you have your own that are missing?  From what I can tell the only letter that is missing from the entire English alphabet is that of Z!  Does anyone have a Z?  “Pat, I’d like to buy a Z please?”

Sound off with any of your own in the comments, but if you have a Z acronym, email me!  I bet you’ll win something if I can verify it! 🙂  Happy shooting, and we’ll see you back here again tomorrow!  (Is it wrong that I have been blogging for nearly 3 years now and still do not have a category titled “Fun”?)

    How about ZIP & LZW – both are compression methods that Lightroom uses when sending files to photoshop.

    I can’t think of any others that you haven’t covered……

    These are commonly used in video production, which I guess now count as we’ve got video capability in our DSLRs: CU, BCU, LS, MS, GV, WS, MOS, DFI, SYNC, INT, EXT, ALT

    How about HZ: Hyperzoom
    I’m pretty sure I’ve heard this before but I’ll let you be the judge.
