Issue: I can't get my Canon Rebel T5i (viewfinder OR live view) to update my preview based on my aperture! It ALWAYS makes it look like I have a blurry background. It's just not working right, as far as I can tell.
Example: At 1.8 aperture, the preview screen showed everything in the background of my subject blurred (like it should). But when I switched to a 22 aperture, it still showed the background blurred on the preview screen. So I pushed halfway on the shutter button. No change. I took the picture, and everything was in focus on the image I took (no blurry background) but when I looked at my camera in live-view/viewfinder again, it still showed the background blurred out still (even though the pictures it was taking were fine).
Things I have tried: I have tried this with different lenses, different priority modes (aperture priority, manual), and different focus modes (single, multi)... I've even tried putting it to a different f-stop, turning the camera off and back on, but nothing helps!
Do I have a setting wrong? Is this just how my camera is?
