    can someone quickly explain for photos what the #'s indicate for shutter speed.. If I want to do 1 second what should the # read? i'm a complete noob for this stuff and would like to know what all the #'s indicate.

    thanks

    1/10th, 1/20th, 1/30th of a sec all the way up to the fastest 1/8000th sec then down to 1 sec, 1.5sec, 2sec then goes to slowest/longest open at 8 seconds - it will show the figures as written I've here on the app.

    Though technically it has no real shutter its electronic the sensor active or on/off.

    I can't see where the confusion is here. 1 is 1 second 10, 20 30 are fractions of a second, I.e. 1/10, 1/20, 1/30.... another clue is that if it has a "after it it is full seconds, without is fractions of a second.

    I think he is asking what he's supposed to do with the settings. You can turn on your histogram in your settings, and this can give you an idea of brightness/darkness.
