Default Powershot A1100 IS, how does one set a low shutter speed

Can someone explain how to achieve sub-second (low) shutter speeds on the Powershot A1100?
The only reference in the manual is how to achieve longer shutter speeds (page 84 of the manual at http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/6/030000...0IS_CUG_EN.pdf )

I dont have this camera now (cant play with it and find out for myself), but may buy it if shutter speeds are settable.

thanks.

The A1100 is a point & shoot camera. It is, at best, an entry level camera and the only adjustments you can make are through the "Program Priority" setting. That does not include shutter speed. The only other alternative MIGHT be one of the low-light scene modes.

Thanks for the info. I was hoping there was a way because the specs say the range is 1/1600 to 15s. The SDK is not compatible with this model so I guess there is no way but the 3200 ISO low light (or other) mode.
