In photography what does the term shutter speed mean and how does it affect a photo quality?

It refers to the speed at which a digital camera's shutter exposes its image sensor to light. For example, a shutter speed of 1/60 means that the image sensor would be exposed to light in 1/60th of a second.

So if you can use fast shutter speed to capture a fast moving action. Slow shutter speeds can be used to capture and deliberately blur the subject's movements to emphasize the movement.

There are two types of image stabilisation type in cameras. They are
  • Optical Image stabilisation: optical image stabilisation is hardware based. So the camera senses the sake and immediately shifts either the lens elements or the image sensor so as to compensate for its movement.
  • Digital Image stabilisation: Digital image stabilisation is electronic based. So no physical shifts occur within the camera. Here the camera's sensitivity is increased to speed up the shutter, thus offsetting blur. However, the higher the sensitivity is set for the camera, the greater the noise which can compromise the image quality.

Camera's have an LCD screen since it makes it easier to frame a shot. But there are times when the glare from the sun makes it difficult to compose pictures from the screen.

It is in times like this that the advantages of the viewfinder shine through. Additionally, when you frame a shot with the help of a viewfinder, you can hold the camera more steadily in addition to preventing an accidental camera shake and blurry pictures. It works well for a zoomed it shot as well, making sure that the shot remains stable. Lastly, when you take a photo using a viewfinder, you also save battery power.

Start with this:
  • Make sure that the speakers you are planning to buy are voice matched. This will ensure that they have the same tonal and sound quality.
  • Make sure that your receiver has enough power for your speakers. To understand whether a receiver is a good match look at the sensitivity. Higher sensitivity ratings are better than lower sensitivity ratings here.
