Latitude is a term to describe the range of luminance that can be resolved, or seen, by a particular format.
A stop is a measurement of light. Two stops is equal to twice the amount of light as one stop. You can control the amount of light in your image by using the aperture and the shutter speed.
Aperture refers to the size of an opening in the lens which can be adjusted to allow more or less light to pass through the lens.
