Help how do you change the aperture settings on a canon rebel xti.

I am shooting in manual mode trying to get some moving water shots and I have figured out how to change my shutter speed but how do I change my aperture I have a canon rebel xti. I am really wanting to get these shots any help would be appreciated.

Hold down the AV button and use the control wheel. This is all explained clearly in the manual.

Aperture is displayed on the viewfinder status bar and on the LCD panel, turn the main dial to select different apertures. A half-press of the shutter release causes the cameras exposure system to calculate the shutter speed, if it's outside of the cameras exposure range the shutter speed will blink.

He is in M mode, not AV. The rebel only has one control dial so you have to press the extra button to set Aperture. Did you read the OP?

Manual mode or not, the processes to use the controls are clearly spelled out in the user manual.  If the OP does not have such as doument they can download it from the Canon website and get the answer far faster than asking this forum.

 

Once obtained, I would sincerely suggest reading the manual before posting questions that it answers.
