Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Shutter-Priority Auto mode, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- If you enjoy the benefits of shooting in program mode…but want more control over shutter speed,…then I recommend you try shutter priority auto mode.…This mode is useful when shooting things…like sports or fast-moving subjects,…and you really need to control the freezing of the action.…Or, perhaps, you want to use a slower shutter…to smooth out something like a flowing waterfall.…To shoot in shutter priority mode,…just turn the dial to the letter S.…Now, you can use the main command dial…to adjust the shutter speed.…As you change the shutter speed,…you'll notice that the aperture automatically…adjusts to achieve a proper exposure.…
Again, you could use exposure compensation…to further influence the shutter priority mode.…As you shorten the shutter speed, the aperture…of the lens opens up to let in more light.…A shorter shutter speed needs a wider aperture…to achieve a proper exposure.…If you don't want to change the exposure,…then be sure to bump up the ISO.…In turn, as you lengthen the shutter speed,…you'll notice that the aperture gets smaller…
