    There is one thing though and I don't know if it's true. Many of my old 35mm SLR the top shutter speed of 1/1000 are not accurate so if my Nikon F5 with top shutter speed of 1/8000 and that may not be accurate but is the 1/1000 speed is any more accurate???
    You would have to check each camera. My new 35mm SLR was made in 1970 or so, and 1/1000 of a second really is 1/1000 of a second, after cleaning and lubricating and adjusting the shutter.

    Thanks! I haven't figure out how to get my Nikon F5 to fire its shutter with the back open or removed yet so I can't test its shutter speed yet.

    It gets challenging to measure those speeds, the slit becomes quite narrow.

    I never a camera that had 1/8000 shutter speed. Can film go into a reverse reciprocity failure?

    There is short exposure reciprocity failure, yes.

    It's an expensive neutral density filter in other words
    Ben,
    You can buy these days a Nikon F-801 or even a F90 for under £40. They have 1/8000th shutters. I'm almost sure the F-801 was the first to have such a high speed shutter.

    In motorsports photography we are always looking for speed.

    You wouldn't move your camera a couple inches during exposure. but an object moving at only 140 mph moves over 2 inches in 1/1000 of a second.

    The first Canon 1D digi has a 1/16,000 speed
    I'm unsure if the shutter actually moves that fast or if the sensor cycles on/off in the correct increment.

    Opps did I just say that.

    I've used it on my F6 for a bunch of times when I was pushing Tri-X to 1600 and 3200. That way I could shoot in low light easially, but bump up the shutter and still shoot shallow in good light.
