Welcome to Day 2 of “12 Days Of Christmas” where for the next 12 days until Christmas day 2021, we have one day an article, followed by one day a poll. All this will take part across a number of Facebook groups, Twitter and of course this website. Please feel free to take part, and enjoy…
Day 2 of “12 Days Of Christmas” has us asking you all a very simple question that will be very divisive, I think.
Question: Is an aperture ring important to you? Along with two very simple answers, just “yes” and “no”.
Aperture is a very important part of the exposure triangle, and therefore deserves to be treated as a major part of your photography experience. Moving to Fujifilm, where the majority of lenses have aperture rings, really reminded me of the film days, when the aperture ring was important!
It’s such a tactile experience, taking full, and quick control of your aperture. Quickly allowing you to gather more light, or of course adjust the amount of bokeh in your image. It’s not impossible shooting without an aperture ring, but having one is just so great!
Let us know what you think in the comments!
I am a semi-professional photographer who runs a weekly meeting photography group as well as numerous Facebook groups (Great Photography Walks South Wales and Fujifilm Lovers Worldwide Group). I also have a brand-new blog website dedicated to various other things which I like to call The Ramblings Of A Welshman. I hope you can join me there; you might find it interesting!
