Pardon the newbie question but is there a way to set the aperture setting when filming video using a Canon Sl2? I have my camera set on Av when I switch to video but I don't see a w ay to control the aperture. What am I missiing? Thx!!

Thx - That was the first thing I tried but nothing happens. The aperture stays the same. The only way I could figure out to control the aperture in video mode was to set the dial to M.

That is normal for the SL2 and most other Canon “consumer” cameras. Only Manual mode gives you full control over Aperture while shooting Video.The other modes are all Auto.
More advanced camera’s like the 5D Mk IV allow Av mode aperture selection in Video mode.
