3.5 seems to be 1/500 - does that make sense
So, I need a new lens ideally. What do I look for?
HawkMan suggested I use "A mode" at night, but this clearly ended up with awful photos. So you guys think I should have used "S mode", instead?
It works for me... you can pratice with those modes and see what is the best for your liking.
for the cars photos, if you want light flow lines as the cars go by, you will need slow shutter speed for that.
