Using the shutter priority mode is really quite simple. Make sure your mode dial is set to the S, this stands for shutter priority. What this does is allow you to choose a shutter spill where the camera figures out everything else. You do have control over ISO and white balance which is great. Just use your dial up in the front to adjust the setting. If I move it to the left I reduce the shutter speed, making it slower. And if I move it to the right I’ll increase the shutter speed making it faster. Faster is great for sports and slower is great for capturing moving subjects like waterfalls.
After I’ve chosen the shutter speed for my picture I just press the shutter button halfway and the camera automatically chooses the appropriate aperture. If I choose a shutter speed that is too high and I don’t have enough ambient light to support it, I can press the shutter button halfway and you’ll notice that the values flash in red. This means the aperture cannot compensate for the fast shutter speed or the slow shutter speed if you choose a very slow shutter speed and there’s too much light and the picture will not come out properly exposed.
