[Question] About the S mode (S: Shutter Priority mode) (P10).

Turning the mode dial to [S] (Shutter Speed Priority mode) allows you to adjust shutter speed manually. In this mode, ISO sensitivity becomes [Auto] automatically (regardless of the ISO setting), and the camera adjusts to have optimal exposure. When setting the aperture, the camera uses a combination of aperture and ND filter.
If [Shutter Speed Auto Shift] is selected in the Shooting menu, the camera will automatically adjust shutter speed for optimal exposure in the case that the selected shutter speed by the user will result for over exposure or under exposure.
The Shutter Speed Auto Shift is available in the [S] mode only. This option is not displayed in the menu other than in the [S] mode.
