! I am fairly new to the SLR world (couple months), but have a pretty good understanding of it already. I'm exclusively using the Av, Tv and M modes.
My question is about the shutter speed (seen thru the viewfinder) while in Av mode. Last night I was studying up to learn more about my camera and I was sitting in my office which is brightly lit, facing my very bright kitchen (all lights on).
I took a bunch of photos using different settings from f/1.8 to f/11 with the ISO between 100-400. The shutter speeds "appeared" to be in a feet/inches measurement, like 15" and 30". I am going to go ahead and assume that that this means 15 seconds and 30 seconds?
Why would it automatically set to such a slow shutter speed? I mean, I wasn't outside in the sun or anything, but I also wasn't in a dark room either. Sorry if this is a dumb question, I couldn't find the answer anywhere on my own. Thanks in advance! :-)
