Re: I'd rather take great IQ

Thanks for such informative posts. I am learning a lot of things.

I checked my photo pool in lightroom and noticed the following  w.r.t shutter speed

1/4000s - 165 out of 14000 shots (D40x and D3100 and 6 shots on D600)

Out of this most daylight shots are on AV mode with wide apertures and high iso(my mistake in early days), camera maxed out at 1/4000th

I am attaching three shots (not trying to prove a point, but sharing some instances where the camera maxed out at 1/4000th), I know these can be taken differently and does not demand 1/8000 as a necessary requirement.

1, A shot with D3100 at ISO 100 85mm F1.8G lens at F2.0

2. The above shot edited in LR with 1 stop negative exp comp - Does this mean if my D3100 had 1/8000th max shutter it would look like this?

3. A D600 shot tested with the same 85mm F1.8G lens at F1.8 and auto ISO (5000), the camera maxed at 1/4000th of a sec. Impressed at the quality
