Re: Meaning of speed listing

I am new to this forum. My question: why is the speed often listed as, e.q. 10/100, rather than .1. Or is it the shutter speed?

Its all to do with the way the camera records the shutter speed information. Humans would obviously round that one to 1/10th sec. It gets more tedious to understand when it says 3523456/464345763 (not that it ever does, but obscure fractions do arise).
