    Hi, just wondering can anyone tell me what settings to use for my camera in the below situation;
    Sony DSC-W7 with a tripod shooting a still object at various distances on a very bright day. Is the shorter the exposure the better or are there disadvantages of using, say, 1/1000 shutter speed?

    Many thanks. :hail:

    When using a tripod, shooting a still subject....shutter speed matters very long as you use a corresponding aperture and ISO setting to get the exposure you want.

    Using a fast shutter speed (1/1000) will mean that you might have to use a wider aperture which means you will have a shorter DOF.

    By slowing down the shutter, you can use a narrower aperture to get a deeper DOF, if that's what you want.
