Tv: Shutter-Priority AE
In this mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera automatically sets the aperture value to obtain the standard exposure matching the brightness of the subject. A faster shutter speed can freeze the action of a moving subject. A slower shutter speed can create a blurred effect, giving the impression of motion.
Tv stands for Time value.
(Slow speed: 1/30 sec.)
(Fast speed: 1/2000 sec.)

Focus on the subject.
- Press the shutter button halfway.

- As long as the aperture value is not blinking, the standard exposure will be obtained.
If the lowest aperture value blinks, it indicates underexposure.
Turn the dial to set a slower shutter speed until the aperture value stops blinking or set a higher ISO speed.
If the highest aperture value blinks, it indicates overexposure.
Turn the dial to set a faster shutter speed until the aperture value stops blinking, or set a lower ISO speed.
