A metering method which recommends or automatically sets an aperture based on a desired shutter speed set by the user.

Given a choice of metering methods, Shutter Priority may be chosen when the photographer needs to control the amount of blur in a photograph. A slow shutter speed will blur moving subjects, or increase the effect of camera shake, whereas a high speed will stop action and render a sharper image.
