Av and Program Av Shift?

Hi, I am a little bit confused about shooting modes of my K-r.
I set my Program Shift to Av mode so that I can quickly switch to Av while in P mode.
So when I switch it goes to "Program Av Hyper".

Is Program Av Hyper the same as shooting in Av mode?

Basically, yes. You just don't need to switch modes

Thanks, I was hoping so.

Also, it should be "Av Hyper", that's what the display calls it, I was thinking it was shift because "P Shift" is another setting. I corrected the OP.
