Ok, please excuse me but I just bought my Nikon d70s and I'm a little unfamiliar with how to set the shutter speed to say 1/500th of a second. When I set the mode dial to M or S and then click, "Menu" to change the shutter speed, all i see is: 1/2, 1", 2", 4", 8", 15", 30", 1/60, 1/30, 1/15, 1/8, 1/4. Can someone please explain what I am seeing or is there another way I could get the shutter speed to 1/500th or even 1/1000th of a second?

Assuming a D70S is the same basic layout as my older D70, once you have set the dial to S for shutter priority then all you need to do is turn the thumbwheel to change the speed setting and watch the aperture change commensurately.
