    Hi John,

    The answer is in the link Willie (aka jiro) provided.

    If you literally want to control shutter speed and you are a beginner, it might be better to use Shutter Priority than Manual at this stage, see page 69 in the manual. Shutter Priority (S on the command dial) is what is known as a semi-automatic mode, you choose the shutter speed and the camera controls the aperture and possibly also the iso (if you have that set to auto - see p84 for that). the advantage of this (over manual) is that you should get a correctly exposed picture (but there are limits).

    Please do read the Tutorials here at CiC and ask more questions here if there's anything you don't quite grasp.
