Freezing motion (that is already pretty still)
8 months ago

Say someone is sitting, looking at your camera. There is a chance their head my move tiny amounts. What sort of shutter speed would you use to eradicate any risk of this showing as blur?

The reason for the question is that I am thinking about my lens choices for indoor wide angle work. I am interested in environmental portraiture and I am trying to work out if a stabilsed but slower lens can trump a un-stabilised but faster lens; the reason being that I can really drop the shutter speed on the former. Clearly, if the subject is properly moving then there is no substitute for a fast shutter speed. But what about for a "largely" static subject, how low can I go? Thanks!
