I can’t adjust aperture on my T5 in Video Mode

I can adjust ISO by selecting it under the Q button and what I believe is the shutter speed by using the dial on the front of the camera. I believe the shutter speed is the number at the bottom that goes from 30 to 40 to 50 etc...

I'm assuming that the T5 acts similarly to the 60D. You have to go into the video menus and enable Manual Exposure. The 60D manual states that if aperture can not be set, press the Unlock button on the back of the camera. I would guess that the T5 has one. Time to dig into the T5 user manual.

Re: I can’t adjust aperture on my T5 in Video Mode

Hi Dgraham2014,


In order to change the aperture setting the Movie exposure setting in the menu will need to be set to manual as BurnUnit mentioned.


Once in manual you will need to hold the Av[+/-] button on the back of the camera while rotating the main dial on top of the camera (the dial used to adjust the shutter speed).


Holding the Av[+/-] button will change the function of the main dial to adjusting the aperture until it is released. A snip from the T5 manual covering this is below.
