Having no manual athand, Ihave to be asking for any helping advice whether it is possible to manually control the diaphragm ratio F while zooming to the utmost value (300 mm)?

Clearly, seeing profesionally, say, during porttrait filming, you need to strickly differentiate between the foregroung and the background. With that goal in mind, I would prefere to put the F value to 2.8 and do not change it forbigger values,say, as 4 and evenmore.

However, the S9500 in the Manual mode changes from 2.8 to bigger valies. Can it be prevented anyway through deeper menu choices? Which ones then if only?

Thank you.

The maximum aperture on the 9500 is relative to the intensity of the zoom. At maximum zoom, what would have been f/2.8 becomes f/4. This is a characteristic of the design of the lens, and is not something that is controllable with software. It is not possible to maintain an aperture of 2.8 throughout the entire zoom range.
