MG/FSS forms are used to submit samples recovered from the crime scene for comparison with samples recovered from a suspect.

If, for example, you were photographing a police helicopter with its rotors turning then using a fast shutter speed, such as 1/500th of a second, will freeze movement allowing individual rotor blades to be seen in the final photograph, whilst a slower shutter speed, such as 1/8th of a second, will create the effect of movement allowing a disc to be seen on top of the helicopter rather than individual rotor blades. If a long shutter speed is required, usually 1/250th of a second or slower, then a cable release and tripod should be used.
