Have you ever wondered how to change the shutter speed on the Sony a6000? There are different ways to achieve that.
I’m sure you’ve heard the advice a million times, “change your shutter speed for best results!” Well, it’s not just a saying. Adjusting your shutter speed will significantly improve your pictures.
A higher shutter speed is great for any fast-moving subjects like sporting events or nature scenes while a slower shutter speed is ideal for taking amazing low-light photos of romantic candlelit dinners or selfie shots in the bathroom (don’t look too closely at the last one). If you want to learn more about photography and how to adjust your camera settings, consider taking an online course.
Changing your shutter speed can be as easy as 1-2-3, but knowing which shutter speed to change to is only half the battle. We’ll be covering that in this specific guide, walking you through what shutter speed is and how we can change it. You may have look on the monitor for surface pro.
What Shutter Speed Should be On Sony A6000
The shutter speed setting lets you control how long the shutter stays open on your camera. This is the length of time that the sensor on the camera is exposed to light. A fast shutter speed means that the sensor is exposed for a very short period of time, while a slow shutter speed means that it is exposed for a longer period of time.
The shutter speed is one of the most important settings on your camera and is used to control the amount of light or time that enters the camera while taking a photo.
The shutter speed is measured in seconds and can range from 1/8000th of a second to 30 seconds, which gives you a lot of control over how your photos turn out.
The two main uses for adjusting the shutter speed are freezing action and blurring motion. Fast shutter speeds freeze action by only allowing a very brief period of time for the image to be recorded, blurring motion by letting more light in for a longer period of time.
Here’s an example: If you are trying to take a picture of a raccoon catching a fish on a pond, you want to capture all that action by freezing it, but if you have it set too fast, you will only get the raccoon with no fish. A faster shutter speed is needed. On the other hand, if you are taking pictures at night and want everything to be sharp and clear, such as street lights or store signs, then you would use a slower shutter speed because it allows more light in.
How To Change Shutter Speed On Sony A6000
Most DSLRs are equipped with two shooting modes: Program (P) and Manual (M). Program mode is automatic, which means the camera will take control of all settings.
In this mode, you can adjust the shutter speed and exposure compensation. The exposure compensation lowers or raises your exposure by one stop.
To change the shutter speed on Sony A6000, follow these steps:
1. Press the Menu button and then navigate to the Shooting Settings sub-menu.
2. Select the Control tab and then choose Shutter Speed from the list.
3. Use the control wheel to adjust your shutter speed setting.* To return to automatic mode, choose Auto from this menu.*
4. Press the Menu button to save your settings.*
This will change your shutter speed for both still and movie modes. If you wish to change it only for stills or movies, follow steps 1 through 3 above and then use the selector buttons to choose Still Image or Movie from the Control tab menu.
