They say that hummingbird’s wings beats 4,000 times a minute! According to,

… they have wings shaped to the purpose and really strong muscles. And they flap their wings really fast—faster than any other bird at up to 70 wingbeats per second. That adds up to more than 4,000 wingbeats per minute!

The Fuji X-S10 can hit a 1/32000 shutter speed which means freezing a hummingbird’s wings is a simple though amazing feat.

More than just freezing motion, the camera’s amazing speed means you can shoot wide open, for example at F/1.4 on a lens like the Viltrox 56mm, into the sun, and manage that light for a proper  exposure.
