Aperture priority

An exposure setting on some camera that allows the photographer to select an aperture setting. The camera selects the appropriate shutter speed. Using the Aperture Priority setting enables the photographer to control the depth of field. Unlike shutter priority mode, it is highly likely that an exposure solution can be made given the aperture or F-stop selected. However, the necessary shutter speed may not be acceptable for your shooting situation.
