Canon camcorders full aperture (F1.8) at full telephoto trick -

I figured out how to force the aperture to fully open at full telephoto just zoom right out set exposure to manual with aperture at F1.8 then zoom in, if u depress the Photo button half way it will say F2.8 but if you look closely in the lens you can see the iris stays fully open and the bokeh (out of focus points of light etc) stays perfectly round and doesn't turn to hexagons!!
Theirs 1 downside tho and this is why the aperture is restricted at full telephoto, the edges of the image become blurry because the aperture becomes bigger than the lens.
