Description

The user should be able to choose between manually setting the Minimum Shutter Speed (MSS) or leaving the camera automatically handle it. When set by the camera, the MSS should be influenced by
  • the focal length
  • the presence or absence of optical image stabilization and ideally some real time feedback from the OIS subsystem
  • a user-set parameter to bias towards faster or slower shutter speeds

Explanation

When photographing moving subjects, it is important to be able to set manually the MSS.
But when trying to avoid motion blur caused by the photographer only (in opposition to motion blur caused by a moving subject) a manually set MSS doesn't give enough flexibility when frequently changing the focal length, in particular with a zoom lens.
The variability of users hand-holding abilities should be taken into account.
