[Question] About the A mode (A: Aperture Priority mode) (P10).

Turning the mode dial to [A] (Aperture Priority mode) allows you to adjust the aperture value manually.
When you set the aperture, the camera automatically selects the appropriate shutter speed for that aperture.
Available f-numbers vary depending on the zoom position (2 steps in the wide end, 3 steps in the tele end).

When setting the aperture, the camera uses a combination of aperture and ND filter.
