Chaning Exposure Time: Pentax Optio S1

Hello everyone,

I own a Pentax Optio S1 and want to change the exposure time. Is this even possible?

The Sensitivity is gray colored and i can not change it.

I take pictures with a drone and i need to reduce the exposure time to get sharp pictures.

You can't control the shutter speed, the only manual control is exposure compensation.

To gain access to the sensitivity, set the camera to P mode rather than green mode.
