    When displaying the shutter speed on a D40, the indicator is somewhat confusing.

    The scale reads like this;

    5,4,3,2.5,2,1.6,1.3,1 then it goes back up, 1,1.3,1.6,2,2.5,3,4,5, etc.

    When I look and see a 2 how am I supposed to know what speed I'm reading? (I've read the manual until my eyes bled, Garbz):)

    Thanks

    Well it should read 2" for two seconds and simply 2 for half a second.

    Best,

    10" means 10 seconds.
    10 means 1/10 of a second.

    Basically if it has aquote that means seconds...without a quote is 1 over that number.
    Make sense?
