    ok some cameras have some really fast speeds, but when do you use them. i mean faster than 1/2000 sec. does anyone ever use these speeds? i barely find myself using 1/1000, and they are there for a reason right?

    depends on the amount of light and aperture.

    but yeah, 2000 works usually but in order to freeze a bird or get something like this you'll need to go faster

    this was the nikon ad for the d3

    Do you ever go outside? Camera wide open? Ever play with high speed sync?

    I would think that if you were shooting something ice hockey the fast shutter speed over 1/2000 would be needed if you wanted to freeze ice fliying from skates

    Put a f/2.8 or lower lens on your camera, kick the iso up to about 800-1000 and leave it on aperture priority. Then walk oustide on a sunny day and see what happens. :o

    :werd: There were times where ISO100 + F1.8 would give overexposed images on my D300 (1/8000th was too slow)

    I'm more concerned with aperture generally, but sure I've maxed it out a few times

    both and manual :o

    totally depends on the situation, though shutter priority is really only for dragging the shutter for me :hs:

    I'm editing the pics from the wedding I did last month. Lighting was so low and I had it on shutter priority, I'm having a difficult time editing the pics... mostly due to the damn lighting. :hs:

    I had my 50mm 1.4 outside on a sunny day. At 1.4, iso100, 1/8000 some of the images were still blown out.

    why did you need the lens wide open? i think my problem is i almost always stop down a little. how do you like the 50 1.4?

    Nikon is touting the camera's ability to shoot at very high ISO settings more than anything.

    Modern Canons and Nikons will both "save" photos if you're hitting the shutter speed cap by lowering the iso if you're not at the lowest iso setting already.
