    Why?
    Doesn't aperture depend on how much DOF you want? And doesn't that depend on the situation?
    Following stupid rules like that only keeps you from being flexible.

    Now this is real high speed photography.

    You don't use shutter speed on your camera to capture an image like this. Rather you use the speed of a strobe (flash) light which is measured in the thousands of a second.

    Most photo noobs don't know anything about using high speed flash. They think you can stop a bullet in flight with your 1/2000 sec shutter speed so :slap: for you.

    LOL. Yeah, but those pictures of bullets destroying apples and flashbulbs have been reposted dozens of times, and each time, the mothod was explained when some noob asked which scene mode to use to take a picture like that.

    Of course. You need fast shutter and high ISO for that.
