Question

A camera takes a properly exposed photo at f/5.6 and 1/250 s. What shutter speed should be used if the lens is changed to f/4.0?

a.1/65 s
b.1/125 s
c.1/250 s
d.1/500 s
e.1/1000 s

1 Answer

  • The shutter speed that should be used if the lens is changed to f/4.0 is; Choice D: 1/500 s.

    The relationship between the shutter speed and the focal ratio is an inverse relationship.

    Ratio of Areas = 5.6²/4²

    • A1/A2 = 1.96 = 2

    Since; T1A1 = T2A2

    • T2 = T1(A1/A2)

    • T2 = 250 × 2 = 500 seconds

    In essence; when the focal ratio is reduced as in this case; from f/5.6 to f/4.0; the shutter speed is increased.

    Ultimately, the shutter speed of the camera in discuss increases to; 1/500 s.
