If you’re looking to change the aperture on your Nikon camera, there are a few different ways to do it. One way is to use the Nikon camera’s menu system, but there are also a few more automated methods you can use as well.

How to change aperture on a Nikon camera
Aperture, also known as f-stop, is a measure of the size of the hole in a camera lens that allows light to pass through. It’s also a measure of how much light is allowed to enter the camera during a photo or video shoot.
There are three main types of apertures on a Nikon camera: Fixed Aperture, Autofocus Aperture, and Manual Aperture.
Fixed Aperture: This is the default aperture setting on most Nikon cameras and it’s permanently set at a predetermined value, such as f/8. The larger the aperture number, the larger the hole in the lens and the more light will be allowed into the camera.
Autofocus Aperture: This is the aperture setting that’s used when you’re taking a photo or shooting a video and your camera is autofocusing. The smaller the aperture number, the more light will be allowed into the camera.
Manual Aperture: This is the aperture setting that you use when you want to control the amount of light that’s allowed into the camera. The larger the aperture number, the smaller the hole in the lens and the more light will be allowed into the camera.
Why changing aperture is important
Everyone loves a good photography tutorial, and this one is no different! In this Nikon photography tutorial, we’re going to talk about why changing aperture is so important, and what different aperture settings can do for your photographs.
Aperture is one of the most important settings you can adjust on your camera. It’s what determines how wide or narrow the aperture is open, which in turn affects how much light your camera can let in. Essentially, this determines how “open” your camera lens is.
Different aperture settings can produce different results. For example, aperture set to wide open (low aperture) will let in a lot of light, while aperture set to closed (high aperture) will let in very little light.
Here are a few examples of how changing aperture can affect your photographs:
If you want to capture a photo of a landscape with a wide depth of field, you’ll want to use a low aperture to let in a lot of light. This will make the background appear blurred while the foreground remains in focus.
If you want to capture a photo of a person in a candid pose, you’ll want to use a low aperture to keep the background out of focus and allow the subject to stand out.
If you want to capture a photo of a flower in the morning light, you’ll want to use a high aperture to keep the light from hitting the flower too harshly and creating a blurry image.
Tips for changing aperture settings
Changing aperture can be a little daunting for first time Nikon shooters. There are a lot of different controls and settings to take into account. But don’t worry, with a little bit of practice you’ll be able to change aperture with ease.
First things first: always make sure your camera is properly set up and calibrated before you start changing aperture settings. This includes ensuring your camera is properly set to the correct shooting mode (AUTO, P, A, S, M), adjusting your lens aperture ring to the correct setting, and making sure your camera is properly charged.
Once your camera is calibrated and set up, it’s time to start changing aperture. The easiest way to do this is to use the shutter speed dial on your camera to control the aperture. To change the aperture, turn the aperture dial to the desired aperture setting (marked on the lens in either f-stops oruki) and then press the shutter button halfway to take the picture. Be sure to keep your fingers close to the lens so you don’t accidentally change the aperture while taking the picture.
Once you’ve taken the picture, turn the aperture dial back to the original setting and press the shutter button fully to take the picture. You can now see the change in the f-stop number on the lens.

How to get the best results when changing aperture
When changing aperture on a Nikon camera, one wants to make sure they are changing it in the correct way. In Nikon speak, the aperture is measured in f-stops and can be expressed in three ways:
1/2 f-stop = 1/4000th of a second
1 f-stop = 1/250th of a second
1/3 f-stop = 1/60th of a second
When changing aperture, beginners should always start with the smallest f-stop (1/3) and increase the f-stop until the desired shutter speed is reached. Additionally, it is always best to keep the ISO rating as low as possible when adjusting the aperture as this will maximize the camera’s sensitivity to light.
Nikon cameras and aperture settings
When it comes to aperture settings on Nikon cameras, there are three main options: Aperture Priority (AP), Shutter Priority (SP), and Manual (M).
AP sets the aperture based on what you want the camera to do (in terms of shutter speed and ISO) rather than what the lens is set to. So, if you want the camera to keep the shutter open for a longer time, you would use a higher aperture setting.
SP sets the aperture based on the shutter speed you want the camera to use. So, if you want the camera to use a fast shutter speed, you would use a low aperture setting.
M sets the aperture based on what the lens is set to. So, if you want the camera to use a wide aperture (larger number), you would use a lower aperture setting.
Some camera settings (like Picture Control) also have an “Aperture Priority” option, which behaves similarly to AP.
All of these aperture settings can be changed using the dial on the lens or the camera’s shutter button.
Overall, aperture is a way to control the amount of light that hits the sensor (film or digital). This can affect the quality of your photos, so be sure to use it wisely!
