I have that lens and it will not take a sharp photo until stopped down to at least f2.8 or f3.2. Kind of defeats the purpose of having a fast lens. I manage to get fairly sharp photos at f2.8 of my grand daughter and it is a $200 lens so I don't ...


I understand that you mentioned thoose two specific speeds for some reason, and not as a general example. My best gess on why your teacher is asking that question is: Traditionally 1/125 was the maximum shutter speed to syinc a flash, becouse higher velocities are achived by start closing the shutter before it has finished "opening", so a flash will only ...


The amount of light hitting the light-sensitive material (film, digital sensor, collodion covered plate, etc) is measured in stops. Essentially, this is your exposure. One of the ways to control the amount of light reaching your light-sensitive material is with the speed of the shutter. Shutter speed is measured in seconds and fractions there of. The ...


While noise is a concern, Sometimes, you do need a bit longer than 30", depending on your lighting conditions. You can use a remote to expose for long periods of time in Bulb mode. I downloaded a remote app to my phone, and it works perfect. Set your camera to Bulb. Set to Remote. Then use the remote to fire. The shutter will stay open until you depress the ...


This is actually a characteristic of the leaf shutter used in Fuji's X10/X20/X30 and X100 cameras. The leaf shutter can only travel so quickly. The wider the aperture is open, the slower the shutter speed has to be to accommodate the operation speed of the leaf shutter. It's a mechanical limit. In M and shutter priority modes, Fuji is allowing the faster ...
