Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Shutter Priority mode, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
In Program mode, when you meter a scene by half-pressing the Shutter button, the…camera calculates an appropriate shutter speed and aperture.…There will be times though when you know that you're going to want a lot of…control of shutter speed.…Maybe you're shooting a sporting event and you know that you want to…perfectly freeze motion,…so you want to make certain that the camera is always using a fast shutter speed.…Or maybe you're shooting a landscape with some moving water in it and you know…that you will want that silky smooth blurry water in all your shots.…So you want to be certain that you're always using a slow shutter speed.…
In Shutter Priority mode, you can choose the shutter speed that you want, and…when the camera meters, it will automatically pick a corresponding aperture that…will yield a correct exposure.…You should already know how to change the Shutter Priority mode.…That's the mode Dial, change it over to TV for Time Value.…When you do that, and meter, you'll get a normal set of Exposure parameters.…
