Wow, wouldn't you think I'd know this by now? Here is my question and as silly as it might seem, I didn't know the answer.

I was talking with some folks the other day about the different mode settings on their camera's, and one of them asked me this question:

When shooting in aperture priority mode, the camera automatically selects the shutter speed, we know that much. But do you have to then every time you want to take a picture, check to make sure the in camera meter is not showing a slow shutter speed, risking the chance of camera shake? And even though in the camera itself, you have the iso sensitivity set to on, and the the minimum shutter speed is preset to 1/60, the camera still sometimes shows the shutter speed going down below that,,,Isn't that what that setting is for?
I didn't know how to answer that...Can someone explain, please?
