The angular aperture of a lens is the angular size of the lens aperture as seen from the focal point:
In the vision sciences, it is called the visual angle, and in optics, it is the angular aperture (of a lens).

Numerical aperture

apertureshigh numerical aperturehyper-NA
In a medium with an index of refraction close to 1, such as air, the angular aperture is approximately equal to twice the numerical aperture of the lens.
In air, the angular aperture of the lens is approximately twice this value (within the paraxial approximation).

Panavision cameras

Panavision Platinumcameras and lensesPanaflex
Where the Panavision Platinum was mostly an evolution and refinement of the original 1972 Panaflex, the Millennium is a totally new design, having a new twin-sprocket drum incorporated with the movement, major electronics revisions, and a general weight reduction from 24 to 17 lb. The Millennium is capable of 3–50 fps forward and reverse, though reverse running requires a reversing magazine, and it has a focal-plane shutter, the aperture angle of which can be adjusted electronically while the camera is running, between 11.2° and 180°, allowing for four stops of exposure ramping within a shot with no iris adjustment.
