Their range of facilities is too restricted, particularly for close-up work, and many are not strongly enough built.

Apart from its importance in determining the exposure (the total dosage of light reaching the film, calculated from aperture x shutter speed), the aperture is one of the factors affecting the depth of field and depth of focus. Depth of field When a camera is focussed at any distance, a point reflected from that distance should be reproduced as a point on the film, so far as the resolution of the emulsion and the aberrations of the lens allow. Points in front of and beyond that distance become successively less well-defined discs the farther they are from the focussed distance.
