In general, choose positive values to make the subject brighter, 
negative values to make it darker.
At values other than ±0, the 0 at the center of the electronic 
analog exposure displays will flash and a 
E icon will be displayed 
in the control panel and viewfinder after you release the 
E button. 
The current value for exposure compensation can be confirmed in 
the electronic analog exposure display by pressing the 
E button.
Normal exposure can be restored by setting exposure 
compensation to ±0. Exposure compensation is not reset when 
the camera is turned off.
