What Is the Perfect Shutter Speed

The perfect shutter speed is 1/500th of a second in my opinion. The reasoning;

 

You can shoot long lenses at this speed.

 

 

It is adequate to freeze almost all action.

 

 

It sounds cool.

 

 

I said so.

 

In actuallity the best shutter speed is the one that gets the job done. Shutter speed is only a variable in the photographic equation, and just that.
