    Hi, I've been wondering about this for some time now and I have to ask:

    Is there a way to "limit" the shutter speed so it doesnt go under some value? I want to use Aperture priority mode so the camera counts ISO and shutterspeed, but when I shoot outdoor sports, where counted shutterspeed varies from 1/50 to 1/1000 I'd rather have camera to use ISO change rather then shutter speed being under some value. I can't use Manual mode, because I wouldn't be able to adapt settings so quickly.

    Afraid not!

    Your best bet in situations like this is to use S mode, and pick a shutter speed that freezes the motion.

    And make sure ISO is set to auto. But if you do, the max ISO your camera will select is 3200 and you can't change that either : /

    Manual mode will be the best bet
