Shutter speed/ F-stops

    The basic rule to follow when choosing a shutter speed is: never uses a shutter speed that is lower than the size of your lens.
    Ex; a 100mm lens would require a shutter speed of 125 or higher,a 500mm lens would require a shutter speed of at least 500. However this rule is a simplified view. Consideration has to be given to the aperture size, the film speed, available light/flash, moving or stationary subjects.

      Luis:
      As you know, these are the most important aspects:
      "Consideration has to be given to the aperture size, the film speed, available light/flash, moving or stationary subjects."
      I'll add distance, time and intent.   smile:

      You meant when a camera is hand-held, right?

      More exception to the rule includes whether or not the camera or lens has Image Stablization or Vibrance Reduction, as many newer lenses have adopted similar technology.

        Looking at some of my images, I have a left-handed camera wink

    Good point, I had overlooked intent.

    Thanks for the observation.
