When the shutter is open for a short amount of time, a large opening is needed in poorly lit situations. Otherwise, a flash unit would have to be used. The smaller the aperture number, the larger the opening will be. The Voigtlander has a few maximum aperture levels to choose from, allowing you to determine the types of lighting scenarios you can shoot in.
