Shutter speed is more dependent on your lens than your camera. Good glass isn't cheap.
Even a couple hundred dollar camera can take pictures at at least 1/1000th, which should be plenty fast enough for just about anything.
Look at the Canon T3i. Basically the same camera as a 7d with a cheaper body. Should run you around $700 with a basic lens.Originally Posted by synolimit
I know nothing about Sony. I have heard good things. We all use Canon at my business And like I said for walking around I use my iphone4s
If you want a great camera toward on go get the 3Ti or 2ti even. that's not to say that Sony or Nikon dont, they do. I just know nothing about them. If you want a "fast" camera and I assume how many frames it will shoot per second and not the shutter speed, you cant go wrong with either.
As far as the actual shutter speed you can capture anything in "stop" motion at 1/80 shutter speed. And that has no bearing on how many frames relative to 1 second you can get. But shutter speed is less dependent on the lens and more controlled by the camera. The aperture which can greatly affect the speed at which the shutter fires is direct affected by the lens. But still controlled by the camera.

That's the thing with the new Sony DSLRs, the shutter speed as far as the cameras body is concerned is infinitely fast. The mirror is fixed, and the image is actually captured directly through the mirror onto the sensor. Therefore the a55 can easily fire off 10fps exposures with no viewfinder blackout. I believe in the future all DSLRs will utilize translucent mirrors.
^^^That's cool stuff. Didn't know that about the new Sonys.
