If all else fails, use AUTO mode.

:thumbsup: I agree. It can only be achieve through practice. TS maybe you want to try shooting on Aperture Priority first and observe what shutter speeds they use? Sorry if this doesn't work cause I only read about some ppl advising others, but I didn't try it.

TS, the only way to know how to shoot is to practice, practice and practice.
For a start, try to shoot in full auto or preset modes (e.g. portraits, night mode, sports, etc). Review the photo to see if you like the effect and look at the settings your camera set for you. Then question why the camera used the settings under such mode.

:mad2: You are still trying to look for a magic number ?

It all depends on what you want; fast shutter speed allows you to freeze fast-moving action, slow shutter speed allows you to create motion-induced blur effect. For normal shooting, if you want to achieve a sharp image with hand held, need to ensure the shutter speed is faster or equal to 1/lens focal length, and many many more . ...

go borrow the book and read it up .....then practice ...

Use the shutter speed that helps you produce the image you want in that particular situation.

Use a mode and if it's too dark, see what was the shutter speed n use m mode to reduce or vice verse

There are no shortcuts that can beat experience. Stop looking for magic formulas. Go out and learn how to use your camera.

i love this...

anyway i also learning... trying out shutter and aperture priority... figuring how the shutter and aperture isn't difficult...

seems like composition and how people gauge the DOF just by look at the picture is more difficult... lol...

Have you read and tried to understand the very basics of exposure? There is a newbies guide here in CS: Photography Notes for Newbies
If you read this carefully you will notice some dependencies between shutter speed, ISO and aperture. All three parameters form the exposure. There is no 'mainly used shutter speed' - unless you ask for a very specific situation. But since your question is generic the answer is: in general there is not preference. For a beginner there is only one guideline to keep in mind: shutter speed < 1/focal length (in mm). This helps avoiding motion blur by handshake.
