Thread: Nikon D90 Shutter speed conversion

    Shutter speed. Example, 1/4000 is 1sec divided by 4000 which is, 0.00025 of a second.

    In terms of exposure, 1 Stop consists of 3 "steps". Example, F2.8 stop down 1 stop. Which is, 1st step: F3.2, 2nd: F3.5, 3rd: F4

    I'm not sure if this applies to all, certainly some cameras can set the aperture and shutter to 1/2 or 1/3 stop. So it's not necessary 3 "steps" in 1 stop.

    Looking at TS numbers, more like 1/2 stop.

    You cannot say that with absolute certainty, because it can be configured to be 2 clicks per stop, or 3 clicks... (ie. 1/2 or 1/3 stop increments)
    anyway TS asked about shutter speed, why you bring up terms like "stop down" and start referring to aperture?

    the step is not necessary to be in one third stop, however, in Nikon, one third stops happen to be the default setting.

    Can't you read that i'm using "example". i'm implying on steps and stops.

    Because TS mentioned he is using a D90. So 1/3 stops are relevant.

    Hahaha so sensitive
    Ppl ask about shutter speed, might as well use shutter speed as example right? 1/4000s to 1/2000s is also 1 stop mah...

    My D90 is on 1/2 stop increments...
    But anyway the whole 1/3 and 1/2 stop debate is IRRELEVANT, since TS didn't ask about how many clicks per stop.

    just read the manual.

    and TS can go library and borrow some beginners guide on photography as well at the same time, then he wont be asking such questions already..
