    Shutter Speed

    Right, In M or Tv I should be able to control the shutter speed, but it seems that ususally I'll set the speed to what I want it, I'll focus on what I want to take a picture of, and when I snap the picture, the camera will alter the shutter speed for some reason. Sometimes the picture comes out ok, but sometimes I'll end up with things like the below...

    Safety Shift.

    There is a setting in the menu called Safety Shift. If this is enabled (which it is by default), the camera will automatically change the settings (even in Manual mode) if it thinks you are making a mistake. Turn it off!

    The other thing that is possible is the flash. If the flash is on, the max shutter speed is 1/500. If you set it faster, the camera will change it.

    Kenen, I believe there is like a safety shift option somewhere that might be causing this issue for you. can't find my manual right now to figure out what controls it. dustyporch beat me to it for some reason I can't find the option though

    Hi Kenen,
    I face some of your problem before. Yes is the safety shift that you have to turn off. Under AV or TV mode - Menu. Because it will overwrite your setting if it sense something different as what you have set. So u try it out.. wish this will help.
