How Shutter Priority (Tv) mode works on the EOS D60


In this mode, you set the shutter speed, and the camera automatically sets the aperture value to suit the brightness of the subject. This is called Shutter-Priority AE.

A fast shutter speed can freeze the motion of a fast-moving subject, and a slow shutter speed can blur the subject to give the impression of motion.

Set the Mode Dial to <Tv>.

Set the shutter speed.

  • Turn the < > dial.

Focus on the subject.

  • Press the shutter button down halfway.

The aperture value is determined automatically.

Check the display, then take the picture.

  • If the aperture value is not blinking, the exposure is correct.
  • Compose the picture, then press the button down fully
