Canon : Product Manual : EOS-1D X Mark III : Manual Exposure Compensation

Solution

Manual Exposure Compensation

Manual Exposure Compensation

Exposure compensation can brighten (increased exposure) or darken (decreased exposure) the standard exposure set by the camera.

For details on exposure compensation when Manual exposure mode and ISO Auto are both set, see M: Manual Exposure.

  1. Check the exposure.

    • Press the shutter button halfway (Timer 06sec) and check the exposure level indicator.
  2. Set the compensation amount.

    Increased exposure, to brighten images

    Decreased exposure, to darken images

    • Turn the Quick Control Dial dial while looking at the viewfinder or top LCD panel.
    • If the setting cannot be set, move the power switch to Power on, then turn the Quick Control Dial dial.
    • The exposure compensation range is ±5 stops in viewfinder shooting and ±3 stops in Live View shooting.
    • The exposure compensation range shown in the viewfinder and on the top LCD panel is up to ±3 stops. To specify more than ±3 stops, use the Quick Control.
  3. Take the picture.

    • To cancel exposure compensation, set the exposure level Exposure level/Exposure level to the standard exposure index (Standard exposure/Standard exposure index).

Caution

  • If [Shooting: Auto Lighting Optimizer] () is set to any setting other than [Disable], the image may still look bright even if decreased exposure compensation is set to darken images.

Note

  • Can also be set by pressing the Exposure comp. button and turning the Main Dial or Quick Control Dial dial.
  • The exposure compensation amount will remain in effect even after you set the power switch to Power off.
  • To prevent accidental changes to the exposure compensation amount after setting it, set the power switch to Multi-function lock.
  • If the exposure compensation amount exceeds ±3 stops, the end of the exposure level indicator will display Right end of the exposure level indicator/Top end of the exposure level indicator or Left end of the exposure level indicator/Bottom end of the exposure level indicator.
