Apertures on sd700?
« on: 07 / April / 2008, 22:21:40 »
Hey, I'm using allbest #30, 1.00b on my sd700.  Is it possible to adjust apertures on this camera?  I do not see an option for it under the extra's menu.  Thanks.

EDIT - Under further research I found the 49 build and updated to it.  I also found out that the sd700 only has in and out under ND filter instead of apertures.

I have searched for what in and out are but I can't find anything.  Could someone please explain or point me in the right direction?

From this page: SD700 CHDK Porting - CHDK Wiki

Yes! It seems that SD700 like SD500 don't have aperture drive (aperture changes only by means of zooming). Small click and apretures 5.6-11 - due to applying internal ND filter. Ewavr 21:27, 5 December 2007 (UTC)

AFAIK the ND (neutral density) filter can only be in (working) or out (not used); it is used to diminish the amount of
light getting through to the sensor, the equivalent of making aperture smaller/Av higher, without the advantage of
increased DOF though.
