Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Shutter Priority mode, part of Nikon D7000 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 are shooting a sporting event and you know that you want a 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 you want that silky smooth blurred water look in all…of your shots, so you want to make certain that you are 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.…
To switch to Shutter Priority, I simply turn the mode dial to S. Now when I…meter, I can see that I am currently set at 125th of a second that's awfully slow.…By turning the main dial, I can change my shutter speed.…
