Also this can besaid as time taken to camera sensor to visualize the scene.Kinds of shutter speedsIn DSLR there are different kinds of shutter speeds for various requirements. Shutter speeds aregenerally measured by fraction of seconds, shutter speeds are mentioned as 1/1000 or 1/50. In thislarger number will indicate you the higher shutter speed. The normal camera shutter speed is usuallyaround 1/60. Lower shutter speed always results in blurry photographsFollowing are the most common shutter speed configurations available on DSLR cameras are 1/500,1/250, 1/125, 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1/8 and more. Some DSLR also allow you the choice of calculatingshutter speed in full seconds (not in fractions) this will be mentioned as 1 second, 2 moments etc.These type of seconds calculated shutter speed which is available in few DSLR is used for low lightphotographs or when you are trying to take activity and mood.

The focallength of your DSLR will contribute to camera trembling and unless you have in-camera imagestabilization, then you should consider your shutter speed with regards to the focal length. For distancefocal length, you will probably need quicker shutter speeds. Without image stabilization, it is better touse large shutter speed then the focal length for quality results. For instance if you are planning topicture something which is in 200mm distance, then you can choose the shutter speeds 1/250 for a topquality Photographs.Following these guidelines will help you end up picking the right shutter speed and will take you a longway towards taking better photographs.
