Setting Exposure Compensation


Setting Exposure Compensation

Exposure compensation can brighten (increased exposure) or darken (decreased exposure) the standard exposure set by the camera. Exposure compensation can be set in the d/s/f shooting modes. Although you can set the exposure compensation up to ±5 stops in 1/3- stop increments, the exposure compensation indicator in the viewfinder and on the top LCD panel can only display the setting up to ±3 stops. If the exposure compensation amount exceeds ±3 stops, setting it with the Quick Control is recommended.

1 Check the exposure.

  • Press the shutter button halfway and check the exposure level indicator.

2 Set the exposure compensation amount.

  • While looking at the viewfinder or top LCD panel, turn the <> dial.

  • If you cannot set the exposure compensation, set the power switch to <ON>, then turn the <> dial.

    • When exposure compensation is set, the icon will be displayed in the viewfinder.

  • To cancel exposure compensation, set the exposure level indicator to the standard exposure index ().

3 Take the picture.
