Think you know your camera gear and photography? Well why not test yourself with our tricky 10 question quiz, and see how much you really know... It is a great way of keeping your mind occupied during these troubled times!

From depth of field to digital image filetypes, photographers in films to filters, these multiple choice questions will prove if you're a photo mastermind or a complete novice snapper. 

It's just a bit of fun, but you might find out something you didn't know at the same time. For example, most people think that the 'M' in Leica M cameras stands for 'mirrorless' – wrong!

So good luck – and if you do well, shout it loud and share your results with the social buttons.
