ABSTRACT
The article offers guidelines on how to choose shutter speeds for cameras. It notes that determining the proper shutter speed is important especially if the photo subjects are moving. It recommends to use a shutter speed of 1/125 or 1/250 second when a photo subject is moving slow or if it appears small in the image. It also suggests not to use a shutter speed slower than the reciprocal of the 35 Millimeter-equivalent focal length of the lens if using a handheld camera.
