Photography Quick Tip: Match Shutter Speed to Focal Length

Prevent blurry pictures by matching shutter speed to the lens focal length

 

For example, if you’re using a 50mm lens you should use shutter speeds of 1/50 sec or faster to be able to capture handheld images and keep them sharp. Longer lenses are heavier and more difficult to keep steady — making the shutter speed faster helps avoid camera shake and keeps your image sharp.

 

Lens Focal Length = Shutter Speed (or faster)
