Clock menu

We're not quite sure why the date and time settings in this menu merit an individual tab as most users will only change their camera's system time very rarely (if at all).

My friend has a Sony A 57, he uses the Fast frame mode, I think the "T" setting to take pictures of his daugher's sports activities, but the images are blulrred, I advised him to set a shutter speed of 1/800 or even higher, but I do not see how to do that with the "T" setting. Can this be done?
Sorry I do not own a Sony camera, this seems like a nice feature and I'm just trying to help a friend.

Thanks Much
m Anthony
