I take quite alot at 1/8000. Try shooting with a f/1.4 prime lens wide open in the carribean and you will understand a little more.

Examples, please, with full EXIF data.

I, for one, love hot Caribbean landscapes especially at f/1.4 and without ND filter Sorry, if I come across as a skeptic but my bull$hit meter just turned red.

I could not give a damn, I am not posting examples because I don't have to. If you do not understand that this has significant advantage on very bright days shooting wide open that is your problem sorry!

1/8000 gives you just one stop over 1/4000. In your exceptionally bright scenes even 1/8000 may not be enough and you will have to use ND filters. And 1/4000 with ND8 gives you the same results as 1/8000 with ND4. And please, do not get defensive. We are all friends here trying to help.

1/8000 is another stop yes? And? That means with 1/8000 I can hold another stop of detail in the highlights. I can think of on a few instances where even with this and highlight recovery I lost a little. I lost a lot less than if I only had 1/4000. Can you just understand that simple fact?

The same argument can be made for 1/16,000 over 1/8,000. Where do you draw the line? Since you and anyone else in this thread failed to produce a singe image with EXIF showing 1/8000 exposure I would assume that for most of people here that line is below 1/8000.

Over and Out. Leo

You are seriously off your head - sorry! I draw the line when I can safely get all the highlights in any light that I shoot in. That's strong sunlight. I have found that 1/8000 and an f/1.4 lens enables me to do this in probably 99% of situations I've come across, it is VERY bright in the Caribbean and the sand reflects alot of light. 1/16000 would likely be all I need in EVERY situation I encounter. 1/4000 wouldn't cut it at all for me personally. I just cannot understand why you fail to comprehend that some people shoot in bright sunlight, at f/1.4 and ISO 100 meaning the higher the shutter speed the better. Why is this so difficult to understand that 1/4000 is too slow with a f/1.4 lens on most sunny days?
