Hello. I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media. Today, I'd like to talk to you about how to adjust your aperture on a DSLR camera. Now most cameras make this actually a very simple process, usually they're all located by different rings. This camera in particular has the aperture adjustment ring right here so all you do is move it back and forth and it's going to open and close down the aperture accordingly. Now other cameras, they'll have the aperture located on the back and again you just move it around and it'll open up or close it down. Now one thing that you have to be very aware of is your lens capabilities. Sometimes on older lenses such as this one, the aperture adjustment is actually going to be right here. So not only is it according to the camera, but it's actually in the lens capabilities as well. And that is how you change your aperture on a DSLR camera. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
