[Question] About the S mode (S: Shutter Priority mode).

Turning the mode dial to [S] (Shutter Speed Priority mode) allows to adjust a shutter speed manually. When you set the shutter speed, the camera automatically selects the appropriate aperture value for that speed.

* The shutter speed
  Making the shutter speed faster will capture a moment like having the fast-moving subject stop. Or making the shutter speed slower will capture a trail of moving subject, which will be able to create the scene in fluid motion.
