On the back of the Nikon D3200 seen in the picture we can see a graphical representation of the selected aperture. Are any modern cameras able to show that in some mode?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Any digital camera would be considered "modern" by the vast majority of photographers who have practiced the craft over the past two centuries or so. Are you asking what current models include the same thing as the D3200? Or are you asking something else? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ ”Modern cameras" is a moving target subject to changing markets. What's preventing you from looking at screenshots in reviews of cameras you're interested in? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I'm curious what the underlying goal is of having such a visual indicator. Why are you looking for this UI element? \$\endgroup\$ Dec 20, 2020 at 13:23

All recent Nikon entry level DSLR cameras, (including the most recent D3500 and D5600) have the option to display the aperture being used as a graphic display. Other Nikon cameras may also have this option.

Here is page 208 of the D3500 manual which shows you how to choose this option. enter image description here

Canon entry level cameras have something similar called “Guided Mode”, but it doesn’t include an aperture graphic like Nikon. enter image description here

  • \$\begingroup\$ I can add to this that using search terms from this the d5600 also have this. \$\endgroup\$
