    I really liked the content of the article, thanks! it is not clear why “Nikon” didn’t make “E” lenses for so long, and why now they stand like “an airplane wing”? And this is against the background of competitors, where the electromagnetic diaphragm is available and has been used for 30 years! how in general is it possible to ensure the stability and precision of aperture control, such a "short-stroke"?
    I noticed a couple of spelling errors in phrases in the article: (The disadvantage of this solution is the need to use lenses with an aperture ring (usually these are old Nikon lenses).

    Hello! Tell me, will it be possible to change the aperture during video shooting on the d600 with a Nikon 35-70mm f / 2.8D AF lens?

      How stupid you are, the article gives a list of cameras with which you can do this.

    that is, choosing a diaphragm by jumping during video, even on younger devices, is this more a software limitation? (in theory, you can make the jumper move (albeit abruptly) during the video)

      On the contrary, mechanical, related to the kinematics of the mirror and shutter.

        But what about this:

        "Hooray! Nikon D800, D800E, D810, D810a, D850, D3s, D4, D4s, D750, D5, D500 cameras (exact list) have finally learned how to control aperture during video shooting. Aperture can be controlled using the F-number dial with any CPU lens (virtually all autofocus lenses). The easiest way to change the F number is in the 'A' and 'M' modes. For these cameras, an upgraded aperture control mechanism has been specially created that can smoothly adjust the aperture 'pusher'. I want to note that despite all the exclamations that Nikon cannot automatically change the aperture value during video recording, such a function has been and has been present since October 2009 in the Nikon D3s camera. And since September 2010, the function of changing the aperture during video recording is available when using lenses with a microprocessor and aperture ring on the Nikon D7000 camera. A serious drawback of the Nikon system is that the younger cameras are completely devoid of the function of changing the aperture on the lenses with a microprocessor during video recording. ”

        In these chambers, the work of the pusher and the mirror is decoupled. The mechanics are different. “Learned” is used here in a different context, not software update was meant.

    please tell me, can the manual lens transmit the aperture value to the camera through the jumper?

      or only through the rheostat and its lever?

        "Jump" is on the lens, the rest is on the camera.

      To quote from this review: “Manual lenses have an aperture control ring. During video recording, no one will forbid you to rotate the aperture control ring, thereby changing the value of the F number. At the same time, on all Nikon cameras that can record video, you can change the aperture value using the aperture control ring on the lens. A slight limitation of this method is due to the fact that cameras D3100, D3200, D3300, D5000, D5100, D5200, D5300, D5500, D5600, D90 (exact list) will only work in 'M' mode. Any cameras that support video recording with these lenses will only have manual focus. ”

        I meant the lever on the lens that covers the diaphragm and is connected to the lever inside the camera mount shaft (I know about the diaphragm ring)
        I am interested in whether the data will be transmitted to the camera with exif not only with the help of a rheostat or lever EE

      Only through a rheostat on Nikon cameras

    Good afternoon! Forgive me if the question seems stupid, and even if not, then it is not entirely relevant. So, to the question. D750, in live view on photo, very noisy aperture adjustment - is this normal?

      Yes, it is normal

    Hello. Great stuff, thanks.
    The question is not exactly about aperture, but about video.
    1. How does the mechanical shutter on the Nikon CZK behave when shooting a video?
    2. How is the frame rate of 30 or 60 frames per second achieved in videos, if the maximum number of frames that the same camera can produce per second is no more than 10?
    Thanks in advance,
