"Right Shutter Speed"


manchester, US
          

If I am working in Manual mode and set my D7000 to f 5.6 how do I know what the right shutter speed is?
Thanks
Bill

If by "right" you mean the same shutter speed that the camera would choose in A, S or P mode, then you have a small graph visible at the bottom of the viewfinder shower under or over exposure. You can adjust the shutter to align it appropriately.

If by "right" you mean some other setting to achieve a specific result, then it's a matter of experience.

To add what's already be mentioned, there's a "0" in the middle, a "+" sign at one end, and a "-" sign at the other. Change the shutter speed until the exposure display is "zeroed" (no bars to the left or right of "0").

a little tric that i learnt
set the camera to apperture priority mode (or any of the auto modes might work too, i havent tried this way yet) choose you apperture and fire off a shot of what you want to shoot, then check the setting of the shot by reviweing it and using the scroll down button it will show what shutter speed was used..
then set it to manual and use the setting you just reviewed and go from there (its doesnt always work btw, but you will be somewhere close so you will have to adjust it from there to get what you want)
but the above mentioned method by the others guys will guarentee a better solution.
im also still learning and i find my way of cheating to be usefull if im scratching my head (which happens a lot lol)

cheers

Hi Bill -

What are you trying to accomplish in Manual mode that you could not achieve by using Aperture priority mode and letting the camera choose the shutter speed?

Regards,
Alan
