Flash Compensation
Flash compensation is used to alter flash output by from –3EV to +1EV in increments 
of 
1
/
3
EV, changing the brightness of the main subject relative to the background. 
Flash output can be increased to make the main subject appear brighter, or reduced 
to prevent unwanted highlights or reflections.
Press the 
M (Y) button and rotate the sub-command 
dial until the desired value is displayed in the control 
panel. In general, choose positive values to make the 
main subject brighter, negative values to make it 
darker.
At values other than ±0.0, a 
Y icon will be displayed 
in the control panel and viewfinder after you release 
the 
M (Y) button. The current value for flash 
compensation can be confirmed by pressing the 
M (Y) button.
Normal flash output can be restored by setting flash 
compensation to ±0.0. Flash compensation is not 
reset when the camera is turned off.
