Of course it does. You can manually control the shutter speed in Tv (traditional shutter priority), M, TAv, and even P mode simply by turning the corresponding e-dial. In the viewfinder, you'll see the shutter speed underlined when it's being controlled manually.

As Adam noted, you can manually set the shutter speed several different ways. Something tells me that you have something else in mind. What are you trying to do that is special?

Thanks for the feed back. What is the Max shutter speed in the manual mode? All my previous cameras it was 1/8000. I do not have to have that fast if its there ok. I am looking at the KP.

Thanks again for the feed back
