Default How to change Shutter Speed?

How do I change the shutter speed on the Sony Alpha A230/330? I've trying to figure out, but no luck so far. Help?

Thanks.

What are you trying to do?

You can use a mode that gives you more control and spin the control wheel to change the aperture/shutter speed combination being used. For example, go to the A position (Aperture Priority) on your mode dial, then spin your control wheel until you see the desired combination in your viewfinder. A lower f/stop number represents a wider aperture and will allow faster shutter speeds for a given lighting and iso speed. You could do the same thing in Shutter Priority mode, or even using manual exposure (where you set both the aperture and the shutter speed).

But, you can't just use any shutter speed you want to unless you want an image that's too dark or too light. The camera will need to keep the shutter open long enough to properly expose the image for the lighting, aperture and iso speed.

Ok, Thanks for your help in this matter. I was using the "P" mode, thats why the appropriate settings were not showing up.
