Apertureand Shutter SpeedDefinitions of Shutter Speed

Shutter speeds are measured in seconds and fractions of a second and so the doubling and halving is fairly self-evident. One quarter second is half as long as one-half second but is twice as long as one-eighth. One second is twice as long as half a second and half as long as 2 seconds. It's pretty easy, and this works through the whole sequence of shutter speeds. On most cameras, the shutter speed sequence looks like this:8 seconds4 seconds2 seconds1 second1/2 second1/41/81/151/301/601/1251/2501/5001/1000

Each of these settings is clearly half/double the length of time of its immediate neighbors (OK, I know, 1/15th isn't exactly half the time of 1/8th and 1/125th isn't exactly half the time of 1/60th, but it's close). http://christinegacharna.com/blog/2009/07/05/lesson-5-shutter-speed/
