The D5100 User Manual says that you must set the aperture befor recording. The wording is a bit ambiguous but I interporate it that you can only change the aperture in A or M mode (see paragraph 1 on page 51). I also attended a free short "course" on the D5100 when I got the camera & the instructor lso said that the only thing that could be changed when shooting a video is the aperture.
