Re: Power aperture a waste?

I've had this set for open and close of the blades however I've noticed that you cannot change this during filming in M or A mode - even confirms my fears in the manual. So my next question, what's the point in the function then? I can adjust aperture the normal way before recording (and since I'm not recording there will be no shake). I thought the whole idea was to be able to smoothy change aperture during filming? Any help appreciated!

Figured out you can only do it when recording via HDMI. Nikon Goofed on this one a little.
