Hi i read from Kodak Photography Guide that in a Bright or Hazy Sun with Distinct Shadows it's recommended to use 1/500 at F11 (Subject not closeup or backlit) the problem is i'm using a very old camera and the highest shutter speed is only 1/300. So in my case, do i need to step down the aperature accordingly? If i need to, what aperature should i used?

Let's say my subject is a street, building or streets with people, i will set the distance to Infinity(using a 50mm lens) to capture as much detail as possible, it's a sunny day with distint shadow. My camera's shutter speed is B, 1, 1/2, 1/5, 1/10, 1/25, 1/50, 1/100 & 1/300 and i'll be using f11 as recommended by Kodak but i don't have 1/500 how?

Also, if u notice my camera's shutter speed don't have 1/60 and if i need to use 1/60 does it mean that i adjust the arrow to point 1/5th in between 1/50 & 1/100?

thanks for reading and helping me.

Use 1/300th F16 or a new camera.

You can also use an ND filter.
