Photograph Details:

I have a small blue dreidel that I enjoy spinning to see how long it can go. It also serves as a good resource for testing the limits of the camera’s shutter speed. In this close up image using an 18-55 mm lens, the shutter speed was set to 1/320th of a second. In another image not posted here, I was able to capture the Hebrew letters clearly when the shutter speed was adjusted to 1/4000. Now that is fast.If I knew how fast the driedel was spinning, I could pinpoint what to set the shutter speed to without having to guess and click for several minutes.
