Shoot Mode: Shutter Priority

still image, movie, slow&quick motion

By adjusting the shutter speed, you can shoot still images with different effects for moving objects, or record movies with natural movement.

  1. Press the Still/Movie/S&Q button to select the desired shooting mode.
  2. MENU (Shooting) → [Shooting Mode][Shoot Mode]/[Shoot Mode]/[Shoot Mode][Shutter Priority].
  3. Select the desired value by turning the control wheel.
    • If proper exposure cannot be obtained after setup, the aperture value on the shooting screen blinks. If this happens, change the shutter speed.
  4. Adjust the focus and shoot the subject.
    The aperture is automatically adjusted to obtain proper exposure.


  • Use a tripod to prevent camera-shake when you have selected a slow shutter speed.
  • When you shoot indoor sports scenes, set the ISO sensitivity to a higher value.


  • The SteadyShot warning indicator does not appear in [Shutter Priority] mode.
  • The brightness of the image on the screen may differ from the actual image being shot.
