Shutter speed vs Focal length
11 months ago

Could somebody clear up the rule of thumb regarding the shutter speed and focal length. My standard lens is 55mm-200mm. If my focal length is 55mm should my shutter speed be1/55 & 200mm =1/200? Etc.

I am kind of finding that the shutter read out on my Nikon to be quite or should I say, not very straight forward. Are all the other brands of cameras like this?
