There are three main settings you can use to adjust aperture: wide open (WO), middle (M), and closed (C). By understanding how these settings work, you’ll be able to take better photos without having to rely on automatic settings.

How to set aperture on Nikon D00:
To set the aperture on a Nikon D00, follow these steps:
1. Once you have launched the camera, select the ” Shooting Menu ” option and then the ” Aperture ” sub-menu.
2. Select the desired aperture value and press the ” SET ” button.
3. The camera will now calculate the correct shutter speed to achieve the desired aperture and display the results in the ” Shutter Speed ” and ” Aperture ” fields.
4. To preview the image at the aperture selected, press the ” DISP ” button.
5. To exit the ” Aperture ” sub-menu, select the ” Shooting Menu ” option again and then the ” Exit ” sub-menu.
Set the mode dial to A (aperture priority).
First, set the mode dial to aperture priority. This will cause the camera to select an aperture (opening) for you.
To set the aperture, turn the aperture ring on the lens. The camera will show you the current aperture setting in red light on the top LCD panel. The aperture range is from f/2.8 to f/22. The wider the aperture, the less light will pass through the lens and the picture will appear darker. The smaller the aperture, the more light will pass through the lens and the picture will appear brighter.
Keep in mind that you can also adjust the shutter speed to control how long the shutter will stay open to let more or less light into the camera.
Turn the command dial to set the desired aperture.
There are 4 aperture settings on the Nikon D3300:
A (automatic): The camera will choose an aperture for you.
1 (small): The smallest aperture setting, allowing more light in but also resulting in a shallow depth of field.
2 (medium): The middle aperture setting, allowing more light in but also resulting in a moderate depth of field.
3 (large): The widest aperture setting, allowing the most light in but also resulting in a shallower depth of field.
4 (telephoto): The camera will choose an aperture for you, but will result in a longer focal length.
Use the multi selector to choose aperture
Set the aperture to the required number by turning the aperture ring
Continue to hold the shutter button halfway down as you turn the ring until the green light flashes and the shutter clicks into position

The aperture on the Nikon D3300 is a variable lens. It can be set to one of four aperture values: F1.4, F2.8, F4, and F5.6. The higher the number, the smaller the aperture opening, providing more control over the depth of field. Aperture settings can be changed while the camera is in Record mode or Live View.
Adjust the shutter speed until the desired exposure is achieved.
First, go to the camera’s menu and find “Aperture.”
Now, choose an aperture value that will give you the exposure you’re looking for.
If you want to keep the shutter speed the same, set the aperture value to “Auto.”
If you want to change the shutter speed, then set the aperture value to a lower number if you want to slow the shutter down, or to a higher number if you want to speed up the shutter.
- locate the Fn button on the left side of the camera.
- press and hold the Fn button and turn the Main Dial until you see Aperture displayed in the top left corner of the LCD screen.
- use the Multi-Controller (or the arrow buttons on the back of the camera) to change the aperture value.
- release the Fn button when you’re happy with the setting.
