In order to better understand what Earth imaging cameras are like (as seen in Google Earth) from the point of view of a photographer, I've asked the following.
Consumer-grade cameras like DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, etc. are specified by things like ranges of shutter speed, focal length and f/number, and others.
Using these kinds of standards, how might a similarly-written specification for an Earth-imaging satellite look like, and compare?
If there is a way to qualitatively explain operational similarities and differences as well, that would be helpful to read as well.
