How is that any different from using Manual mode on any Nikon that has 2 dials, the main command and sub command dials? You can even reverse them, putting Aperture on the Main and Shutter on the Sub dial.
Because A (for Auto) is just a setting on each dial. Need auto shutter? Move shutter dial to A. Need Auto Aperture? Move aperture to A. Now need to control shutter? move shutter dial to desired number.
Sorry, but I guess that I'm too stupid to grasp the significant difference between either P mode or M mode and what you say you want. P mode does both auto shutter and aperture and you don't need to change the mode dial. Change the shutter and the aperture is automatically adjusted, change the aperture and the shutter is auto adjusted, etc.
M mode is only different in that the shutter or aperture don't automatically adjust to changes in the other.
