    how "slow" is slow shutter, there really issnt much answer to this question...
    whether a shutter speed is too slow, really depends on the circumstances such as light, focal length....

    speed is relative... and depends on the subject, focal length and what you want to capture.

    How slow is slow?

    This depends on the situation loh...like how fast is fast for car speed? Ask a TP, he will say, if you are travelling on relatively straight part of the expressway, >90kph is fast.....if you are on a bend of the expressway, >80kph is fast....

    So, how slow is slow? Depends on what are you shooting loh.....I think! Ha! Read my signature!

    try shooting F1 races...1/200 is considered slow.

    for me, i consider it show shutter as long as there is a substantial amount of motion blur
    eat. drink. shoot

    To me slow = a shutter speed that will cause motion blur to what I prefer to be sharp.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    cannot define leh... sometime i wan intentional light trail, even 2s i find it too fast... sometime i wan to freeze a subject which is moving at high speed, 1/200 i find it not fast enough. it also depends on the focal length, when im using my ultra wide, im fine with shutter of 1/20. but if im using my telezoom, 1/200 still consider slow/average

    depends on how much you would consider slow on what you are shooting. for normal everyday life, below 1/40 is considered slow shuuter for me, prone to blurs. Depending to focal lengths too.
