    I have a canon t2i

    Okay, I just bought this camera today. I'm extremely new to this, so forgive me for my newbie way of explaining this..

    I've been watching youtube videos and i've noticed how people can switch from a very clear close range to blurry background and going back and forward. I know how to change the aperture in the "Av" menu but how do i change it while i'm in the middle of recording? If anyone knows this, help would be appreciated. thanks

    It sounds like they are just changing the focal point.

    They focus on something close and then manually re-focus on something in the background.

    Manual focus is used WAY more when shooting video, than it is when shooting stills.

    I'm pretty sure the aperture isn't adjustable when you're recording.
    You need to put the camera in manual focus.
    Focus on something close the background is blurry, focus on the background and the foreground gets blurry.

    Yep, that's what I said, except not mentioning the aperture isn't adjustable when recording video.

    +1, and yes, the aperture can be adjusted while recording... but it's not pretty.

    Turn on the manual exposure movie mode in the T2i menu!
