    Default Is my camera faulty for doing this?

    For a movie project I am planning everything for, for some shots, I want to do zooms during the shooting. However, the zoom lens I have is not a constant aperture one, since those ones are much more costly.

    But even if I keep the lens at the same aperture, say f8, while zooming the whole zoom, it still readjusts during the zoom, even if it's f8 the whole time.

    Here is a zoom example I did on someone. You can see the aperture change, even though it's the same aperture the whole time according to the camera. Any thoughts on how to change this?



    I asked some other people and they said that there DSLR cameras do not do this. I have a Canon where as they have Nikons and Sonys so we couldn't compare. But they said that my camera is faulty if it cannot hold the same aperture, if the aperture is f5.6 or below that, then it should hold the same aperture the whole time, no matter what the zoom length. So what do you think, is it faulty then?

    Maybe not.
    The camera might not be displaying the change in aperture.

    But I was told that the aperture shouldn't be changed by the camera at all. If that's true, then is the camera faulty for changing it?
