Once you've selected some brand names you trust and can afford, you face another choice: which lenses to buy. Most cameras come equipped with a 50mm lens. This is the standard lens for 35mm photography, because it is closest to normal vision.

The numbers on the shutter-speed control indicate fractions of a second (60 = 1760 of a second, and so on), so the timer has to count very quickly. The most commonly used shutter speeds are probably 60 and 125. Both are fast enough to stop most action with a 50mm lens, while allowing for a fairly small aperture in most lighting conditions. Notice that 125 (or 1/125 of a second) is almost exactly twice as fast as 60 (or 1/60 of a second). The next speed above 125 is 250— twice as fast again. Depending on your camera, the highest speed may be 1000 or even higher, fast enough to "freeze" a bird in flight or a race car at the Indy 500.
