1/4 a second whereas 1 over.
250 means the shutter speed is one at 250th of a second most cameras can handle shutter speeds as fast as one 4 thousandth of a second or sometimes even as high as one eight thousandth of a second and shutter speeds as long as thirty seconds longer shutter speeds can be achieved using a function known as bulb mode where the shutter speed is.
Determined by the length of time the shutter button is activated either manually or through a remote trigger it’s.
