How to use Av (Aperture priority) mode.


In this mode you set the aperture and the camera sets the shutter speed automatically to suit the brightness of the subject

A large aperture (small f-number) will blur the background and make the subject stand out. The larger the aperture the more blurred the background.

Or a small aperture (large f-number) will increase the depth of field to make the foreground and background look sharp. The smaller the aperture, the sharper the background will look

*"Av" stands for Aperture Value

Turn the Command Dial to AV

Select the desired aperture

  • Turn the dial
  • The aperture value can be set in half-stop increments
