1.
Abv. of "Flash For The Zoom."

Colloquialism often used by underwater
photographers working in the field, by
Aquarium patrons and photography
staff.

Specifically, the desire to switch the
Flash function of a camera to a higher
quality Zoom function in order to
capture a distant well-lit subject
ie shovelnose guitarfish in
medium light.

Often said out of frustration as a result
of inferior camera equipment unsuited
to the particular underwater photo
session going on.
Arielle: "This camera only has a flash. It's totally
unsuited to these oceanic lighting conditions."

Jim: "So, FFTZ...?"

Arielle: "... Definitely."
