Many Nikonians members have posted in this forum and others, over the past couple of years, about the quite common need to increase typical shuttter speed when shooting the higher resolution sensors.

There is no set minimum. It depends partly on how good the photographer's handheld shooting technique happens to be. But it's easy to find out what works best for you. Pick a few of your favorite subjects, set the camera to shutter priority, 1/125s, start shooting, and then increase your shutter speed as you make more and more shots. Examine the shots at home on a 15" or larger monitor. Judge for yourself which shutter speeds helped make the sharpest shots.

Practice good handheld technique first and foremost - elbows against your sides, straight back and neck, balanced with feet apart, right hand comfortably gripping the camera but not squeezing it, left hand cupping bottom of camera body and lens barrel, press down only the shutter button with one finger as opposed to pressing down the whole camera slightly (a common cause of blurry shots). Take a breath, exhale, stop, shoot. Breathing movement is another common cause of blurry shots.

I know at least two D7000 and D800 shooters whose handheld technique is so solid that they only rarely have to increase shutter speed higher than what they used to get razor sharp shots with lower resolution cameras. Wish I could say the same for myself. Both shooters have excellent handheld technique.
