Old question but I can't find the answer anywhere. I picked up a second hand mk2 firmware 2.0.7. and I can't figure out how to adjust the aperture setting when in Manual video shooting.

The Firmware is now 2.0.9, but, the book manual came with the camera, you may be able to download the Manual from Canon's web site ?

Or Page 90 > Set the Mode dial to
Set the shutter speed and aperture
>Turn the top dial To the exposure level indicator in the view finder on top of camera.
>To set the aperture , set the power switch to the -, and turn dial at the back of camera.

PS ., This really is not the best practice, Set Tv to 1/50 sec and let it chose own aperture, set ISO at A+ Automatic it will go to ISO 6400 if required or as low as ISO 50, if overexposure is detected change speed to 1/125 sec or higher or adjust exposure compensation by -1 or -2.Otherwise you may have to buy a hand held meter or read the automatic setting off the camera, it makes No sense.

Good luck

We have Chinese friends, but, you react like my son who has just come back from Hong Kong etc. Sometimes the Manual in English, is not very good, all the best in Manual, you will need it.You sound more Australian than your name YU suggests
