Last night I was reviewing settings on my D7000 indoors. On a tripod. In S mode and A mode the shutter wouldn't fire. I took the tripod and camera to a brighter room and the shutter operated ok.

This morning I repeated some of my testing outside. Looking at a multi-colored flower bed, I varied the settings for this menu: Shooting>Image Quality. I toggled the setting to Natural, Vivid, Landscape etc.

The camera was in S mode. A few times the shutter would not release. I played with the F stop and/or ISO and then it fired. My question is this: Does the camera prevent shutter release when the scene is underexposed? In the same way that it won't release while out of focus?

Where is the menu setting for this feature?
