What does your Camera’s Aperture Look Like?
We came across the image below and decided to share it with you as we believe it provides a good summary of the ‘Aperture’ in our cameras. It provides you with a tour of your lens, and highlights the following parts –
- Iris blades – The aperture is created by a set of intersecting blades that forms a diaphragm.
- Lens component – The aperture assembly is located between the lens element in the barrel of your lens.
- Motor – The aperture is controlled by a motor which opens and shuts the aperture when the shutter fires.
Hopefully you are now aware of what an Aperture is and how it functions. We think you would have learned something new from today’s photography post. So remember to pass on your new found knowledge to all your family and friends!
