How to set exposure compensation


Exposure compensation is used to alter the camera's standard exposure setting. You can make the picture look lighter (increased exposure) or darker (decreased exposure). The exposure compensation can be set up to +/-2 stops in 1/2 stop increments

Turn the Mode Dial to a Creative Zone mode except <M>

Check the exposure setting

  • Press the shutter button halfway and check the display

Set the exposure compensation amount

  • Press the exposure compensation button, turn the electronic input dial until the desired exposure level mark is set to the desired exposure compensation amount
  • Exposure Compensation remains active until canceled
  • To cancel exposure compensation repeat the above procedure to return the value to 0 or set the command dial to the green zone or to any of the PIC modes

The exposure compensation amount set is retained even after the Mode Dial is set to <OFF>

The exposure compensation amount is canceled automatically when you turn the Mode Dial to a Basic Zone Mode
