How to use Nikon D7200 Shutter speed
Shutter speed refers to how long the shutter stays open while the sensor is exposed to light. It is an important setting for all photographers who wish to start a career in photography.
Shutter speed does two things:
- Brighten the photos
- Dramatic effects can be achieved by blur motions and freeze action photos
For perfect photography, use the Nikon D7200 shutter speed settings
Long shutter speed
The Nikon D7200’s long shutter speed allows the sensor to be exposed to light for a longer time. This creates a motion blur effect in the photo. These effects can be useful when the user wishes to capture a shot of moving subjects. These effects can also be used to advertise automobiles.
Slow shutter speed
You can also use slow shutter speeds to capture photos at night or in areas with poor light conditions. Slow shutter speeds can cause a photo to be blurred if you shake it. Use a tripod. Slow shutter speeds are used by some landscape photographers to give the impression of motion, such as ripples in rivers or sea, and waterfalls.
Fast shutter speed
A faster shutter speed can be used to capture freeze action photos by eliminating motion. This feature is useful for people who wish to capture images of high-speed moving objects/subjects, such as a racing car or jet fighter plane.
Properly measuring shutter speed
Technically, shutter speed can be measured in fractions or seconds. Many mirrorless and DSLR cameras have the latest technology, which can increase the speed by up to 1/4000 seconds. Some cameras are faster than others, with speeds as fast as 1/8000 seconds or faster. One of these cameras is the Nikon D7200.
The Nikon D7200 has a speed range of 1/8000 to 30 seconds. This gives you enough freedom to capture any subject/object.
Nikon D7200 shutter speed
Sometimes, you may want to take a photograph at a certain shutter speed but your lens doesn’t permit it.
If you try to capture fast moving subjects in low light, such as when there is no more than 1/125 second shutter speed, the subject will blur. If your lens’s largest aperture setting is f/3.5, then you will see that both the rear LCD panel and viewfinder are blinking. It is important to understand that not enough light is available for the shot. There are also limitations to the lens. You will end up with an underexposed photo. To avoid this, increase your ISO.
Use shutter priority mode to shoot:
- Adjust the S position on the Nikon D7200 mode dial.
- The ISO button is located on the left side of the camera. While rotating the main command dial, press and hold the button.
- The ISO will appear at the top of the screen. To lock the change, select the ISO you prefer and press the ISO button to the left.
- Point the camera at the subject. Now, activate the camera meter by pressing halfway the shutter button.
- You can view the exposure information in the lower area of the viewfinder, or look at the top display panel.
- Once the meter has been activated, you can use your thumb to move the main Command dial left or right to view the changes in exposure values. For faster shutter speeds, roll the dial to the right. Roll it to the left to see slower shutter speeds.
