How to set flash compensation on the EOS 1Ds

Solution

With the camera, you can set the EOS-dedicated Speedlite's flash exposure compensation amount up to +/-3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.

While pressing the <> button, turn the <> dial to set the desired flash exposure compensation amount.

  • On the LCD panel, the plus side of the scale indicates increased exposure and the minus side indicates decreased exposure. The sample display shows +2/3 stop flash exposure compensation.

Take the picture.

  • Press the shutter button halfway to display the flash exposure compensation amount on the viewfinder's exposure level scale.
  • Press the < > button to display the flash exposure compensation amount on the LCD panel.
  • To cancel flash exposure compensation, set the flash exposure compensation amount to <>.
  • The flash exposure compensation amount will be retained even after the < > switch is set to < >.
  • You can also set flash exposure compensation with certain EOS-dedicated Speedlites. If you set flash exposure compensation with the Speedlite and camera, the flash exposure compensation set with the Speedlite will override the one set with the camera.
  • C.Fn-06-2 enables the flash exposure compensation amount to be set in 1/2-stop
  • increments.
