    Aperture Size

    Well, this must be the silliest question here ever asked. Still, how can we change the size of aperture in a compact camera? I am using Sony DSC W-80.

    Thanks.

    Hi Sahil,

    I don't know the camera you have but I have a compact camera on which it itsn't even possible to change the aperture (Panasonic Lumix FX-35). On some cc you can change shuterspeed or aperture and then the camera selects the other to get the right exposure, but it might be possible yours isn't one of them.
    So take a look in your users manual or just try everything in your camera itself and find out .
    Most of the time there is a manual mode on the camera. Select this one and than you can adjust either shutterspeed or aperture directely via buttons on your camera or somewhere in the menu.

    a quick look through that review reveals a P mode, but not the ASM extras. Your best bet would be trying some of the scene modes to see if any of those do their best to get the aperture wide/narrow

    Thanks! Well then my camera doesn't support it
    Can't even take long exposure shots, which really amuse me

    Again from the linked review, your max shutter speed would be 1" when in program mode, this is just enough to play with some effects.

    But yes, if you realls want to get creative, you should probably get a camera with full PASM modes. You can get that in a P+S, but youll have to look carefully

    You cant change ur aperture in W series model f sony.But if you take pics by "soft" mode then camera generally takes long exposure due to its auto set up.

    wow! i have the same situations guys before i have a kodak point n shot camera, its controls are very limiting i mean the creative zone controls.
    my advise is to have a digital slr camera and you achieve whatever style of photography you want, provided that you have the necessary skill and lenses.
    check out some of my images taken with dlsr on my flickr account.
