Zoom and aperture problem


What lens do you have on the camera? Many zoom lenses have a variable maximum aperture. This means that the maximum aperture varies depending on the focal length. If you set the lens to its maximum aperture and then zoom, the aperture may change.

NIKON D3100 zoom problem


The D3100 doesn't have digital zoom capabilities. The zoom range depends on the lens you have fitted on. The 5.6 sounds like the aperture. The maximum aperture also depends on the lens.

The S3100 does have digital zoom capabilities. Is this the camera you're referring to? Or are you confusing the specs of the two cameras?

Why the "f" number in manual mode, doesn't go to under the 5.6 ?


f/5.6 is the maximum aperture for the 18-55mm lens zoomed in to 55mm. If you zoom out to 18mm you'll be able to open the aperture to f/3.5.

The maximum aperture is a matter of physics. The larger the aperture (smaller f/numbers) the larger the lens has to be. In theory you could make a 55mm lens with a maximum aperture of f/0.5, but it would have to be more than four inches across on the inside. Lens designers have to balance cost and size with performance.

If you really need a faster lens you can get something like this, but it'll cost you a bundle, about six times as much as your 18-55mm.

I have Rebel camera. The lowest f-stop I've been able to set it at, whether on AV or Manual, is 5.6. Do I need to adjust the ISO speed to be able to get larger aperture?


The maximum aperture is determined by the lens. At 55mm, the 18-55mm lens will not open up beyond f/5.6. This has nothing to do with the ISO or the camera's exposure mode. If you zoom out to 18mm, you can open up to f/3.5.

The varying of the aperture with the focal length is part of the design. While it is possible to build a lens with the same maximum aperture throughout its entire zoom range, that would result in a larger and more expensive lens. For example, Canon has a 17-40mm f/4 lens. That lens weight two-and-a-half times as much and costs more than four times as much as the 18-55mm.

I'm using a Nikon D3100 with a 55-200mm lens, and I'm trying to set my aperture around 1.8 to shoot bokeh, but it won't let me set it lower then 4. I had a 18-55mm lens on earlier, and it wouldn't let me...


You can't set the aperture any lower than the maximum aperture of the lens. This is engraved on the lens. It may say something like f4-6.3 or something similar meaning that f4 is the largest opening of that particular lens. If you find a 55-200mm lens capable of an opening of f1.8, it will cost more than your first car.

On my d90, under M (manual mode or aperture priority), the aperture on the readout goes beyond the actual aperture range; i.e. f3.5 - 5.6; readings will show aperture range of 5 - 29 when I scroll with the...


There is NOT a problem. The f3.5-5.6 indicates the maximum aperture in the zoom range. At 18mm the maximum aperture is f3.5, at 105mm it's f5.6. The minimum aperture ranges from f22 to f38.

So, at 18mm, the aperture can range from f3.5 to f22. At 105mm, the aperture can range from f5.6 to f38. At intermediate focal lengths the aperture range is somewhere between the two extremes.

Displaying FEE


This problem is usually seen on Nikon models, but as your camera is basically a Nikon/Fuji hybrid it's not surprising that it's occurred on yours.

FEE usually means that you have not set the lens aperture ring to it's smallest (highest number) setting. Your camera needs this to happen in order for it to automatically control the lens aperture as it then allows the camera to utilise any aperture between the maximum and minimum settings.

If this doesn't fix your fault then try another Nikon AF lens; if the problem remains then you have a faulty camera body, usually a broken AI (auto indexing) post on the body which senses when the fitted lens has been set to minimum aperture.

Why won't my aperture go lower than 5.6?


You do have total control, within the constraints of the hardware. The 18-55mm lens has a maximum aperture range of f/3.5 to f/5.6. This means that at 55mm the maximum aperture is f/5.6. You can go the other way, all the way to f/38. At shorter focal lengths you can open up as far as f/3.5.

If you want a larger aperture, you'll have to get a faster lens. For example, Nikon has a 17-55mm f/2.8 lens which has a maximum aperture of f/2.8 at all focal lengths. It also costs $1300 new.

I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.


If you're using the kit lens (17-85mm f/4-5.6), the maximum aperture achieveable when fully zoomed out (wide) is f/4 and when fully zoomed in, f/5.6 (that's what the f/4-5.6 stands for). The minimum aperture on this lens is not a problem since you're only making it smaller. i.e., f/22.

Try zooming back and turning the Aperture adjustment dial. You should be able to get f/4.

If you need bigger aperture to get a nice bokeh or to take portraits where the background is blurred while the subject in focus (aka shallow Depth of Field), try lens that are f/3.5 or f/2.8 max. The Canon 50mm f/1.8 is quite affordable (around US$100-120).
