Top plate controls

The top right is covered in analogue controls, with a drive mode lever as well as shutter speed and exposure mode dials. Even the power switch is in the form of a rotary dial encircling the shutter button, which is threaded for a traditional cable release.

The shutter speed dial offers speeds from 1/4000-4 sec, plus Bulb, Time, and X-sync for flash. It also has a '1/3 step' position in which shutter speed control is passed to the electronic rear thumb dial; to move it off this setting, you have to press the central locking button. The PSAM dial also locks, and has to be lifted up to turn it. The vertically-mounted front dial controls the aperture when shooting with Nikon's G-type lenses that don't have aperture rings.
