Have you ever wondered how photographers capture those perfect images? A hummingbird in motion, a football spinning mid-air, a drop of rain splashing onto the pavement ? they?re all moving so fast! You photos just turn out blurry and flat.

With the latest in photo technology, even an amateur like yourself can capture gorgeous, detailed, life-like pictures. Here?s how.

Shutter Speed

Shutter speed refers to the length of time that the camera?s shutter stays open to allow in light, which creates the image. A short shutter speed is used when attempting to capture fast moving objects. It allows you to achieve the best clarity.

High speed cameras are known for their short — or fast — shutter speed. While normal cameras function at about 1/125th of a second, the average high speed camera works at 1/800th of a second.


Having a good flash is key when working with a high speed camera. Because the shutter is only open for such a short period of time, not much light is able to get in to create the image. This isn?t a problem if you are out in a sunny field, but if you are indoors or in low light, you will have to compensate with a strong flash.

Most cameras will adjust the flash automatically to ensure a high quality picture with plenty of light. However, if you prefer, you can play around with the settings to reach a level you are comfortable with.


The aperture refers to the size of the lens opening. It is also called the focal length or the f-stop. The larger the aperture, the more light is let in. Measuring the f-stop is fairly simple; the numerical value increases as the aperture decreases in size. For example, f/4 is a larger opening than 4/16.

With all the technology available to us today, taking high speed photos is easier than ever. High speed video is easy, too, with the Phantom Flex4k camera. If you have any questions or simply want to learn more, feel free to post in the comments section below.
