  1. #1

    Default GF1 Shutter speed

    As i just got my GF1 and im a noob, need to know the capability of the shutter speed control as i read some online review that there is some shutter speed restriction and i cant get the shutter speed very low(Fast), what is the fastest shutter speed i can get from this cam?

    Need help as i dunno how to do it even on shutter priority mode. Sorry im noob and need all the bros here to teach me. Example taking the pic of a moving fan blade and able to see it still.

    since you just got your GF1, why don't you just spend some time to read the manual first? most if not all of the basic information is in the manual.

    If you are like me and find manuals boring, can also use the dpreview's review of GF1. I normally read my manuals from there.

    I know the x-sync speed is 1/160s when you use external flash, very limiting.
