Exposure Compensation
Exposure compensation is used to alter exposure from the value 
suggested by the camera, making pictures brighter or darker.  It is 
most effective when used with center-weighted or spot metering 
(
0 115). Choose from values between –5 EV (underexposure) and 
+5 EV (overexposure) in increments of 
1
/
3
 EV.  In general, positive 
values make the subject brighter while negative values make it 
darker.
To choose a value for exposure compensation, press the 
E button 
and rotate the main command dial until the desired value is 
displayed in the viewfinder or control panel.
