    To make an exposure for you to see anything at all, the shutter has to open for a period of time for the sensor to register the light passing through. 1/4000 is not long enough in most instances. Most camera can go up to 1/8000 but that doesn't means you have to use it at all.

    Because 1/4000s is stinking fast?! only sooo little light can be captured in that time, thus the darkness of the pictures?
    u talk about in normal conditions. no one uses 1/4000 in NORMAL conditions.

    i normally dont post but, dude u have no clue at all do you?

    What does it say on the right side of your speedo? 180km/h? 200km/h? When was the last time you drove at 200km/h? If you haven't, is your car a white elephant?

    Ok for teh sake of TS let me use a idoit proof way of explaining exposure and why you get a black picture.

    Think of exposure is a scale from 3 -> infinite where smaller means more light is being let into camera (brighter picture)

    Exposure is calculated via shutter + aperature + ISO and each has what we call a stop. To make things simple we make it point system.

    So shutter 1/30 is 1 point, 1/60 is 2 point so tat will make 1/4000 7 points

    Aperature is the same. 2.8 is 1 point, 4 is 2 point, 5.6 is 3 point, 8 is 4 point and 11 is 5 point

    ISO will be 1600 is 1 point, 800 is 2 point, 400 is 3 point, 200 is 4 point and 10 is 5 point

    On a bright sunny day, if your exposure is say below 14 points you will get a super over exposed picture. so this is where you can use 1/4000.

    1/4000 = 7 point iso100 = 5 point aperature 4 = 2 point

    But say indoor, you will need 3 points else it will be dark. So mix and match again

    1/30=1 ISO1600=1 Apearture2.8=1

    The reason why you getting a black picture is cause you are setting 1/4000 in place that needs 7 point to light up.

    1/4000=7 point the rest no matter how u get = not enough light as such you get a super dark picture.

    If you still understand simple match above you really should just use auto -.-

    Like cameras and such,i love to fiddle and learn through trial and error.
    Sinking myself in book?not my style
    u dun have to sink urself in books, it won't take much time to understand exposure.

    If u dun even want to spend a little time to understand the very basics of wat u're doing, it's called attitude, not style.

    Now how o take a 1/4000k picture? Simple use a D3 and set ISO 25600 then use the 50 1.4 lens and use 1.4 aperature and here you get it usable 1/4000 indoor =.=

    There's this new paint on the market called the "magnificent 5 stoppers for the 1/4000 photographer". Paint your walls with it and you'll instantly gain about 5 stops of light in your room. You might want to choose the odourless version. Then use 1/4000 to your heart's content.....

    Those insane shutter speeds are not meant to be used in the usual outdoor conditions. If you consider this to be a white elephant then you are perhaps right.
