P7700 minimum apertures in aperture priority mode
I am on the verge of buying a P7700 and have read many of these excellent threads, I have found the max apertures related to zoom setting but now want to know the minimums in aperture priority. f8/f11/f16/f32???
f/8 at all focal lengths
Walkaround I have only ever owned DLSR with Aps-C I was not aware that the min aperture was dependent on sensor area.
Bit of a bummer as I was hoping for f11 or even F16.
When comparing it to a DSLR, the aperture is not the same because of the crop factor. At f8 it would be equal to f36.8 in a full frame DSLR (see info below) - bper
Nikon Coolpix P7700 equivalent aperture
however that is an equivalent you cannot dial it in for use with say manual ext flash or playing with DoF
Applying crop factor to the aperture, in this case 4.55, is not hypothetical - it is actual equivalence you can verify experimentally.
"Playing with depth of field" is not a strong suit of smaller sensor cameras. Max aperture f/2 on the P7700 is f/9 on a 135 format, for the same distance to subject and framing.
"........ Max aperture f/2 on the P7700 is f/9 on a 135 format, for the same distance to subject and framing.
As a people photo that is reassuring, pic wise it looks like 5.6 not your calculated 9.
Thanks for the info.
