5. Setting Exposure Compensation
Exposure compensation is used to alter the camera’s standard exposure
setting. While looking through the viewfinder, you can use either the <
>
dial or <
> button to set the exposure compensation amount. Any
exposure compensation amount that you set can later be changed or
canceled with the <
> dial or <
> button. The exposure compensation
amount can be set up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
Exposure Compensation
with the <
> Dial
Set the <
> switch to <
>.
Focus the subject and check the
exposure level.
Turn the <
> dial to set the
desired exposure compensation
amount.
• Turn the <
> dial while pressing the
shutter button halfway or within (
) after
releasing the shutter button.
• The exposure compensation amount is
indicated by the exposure level indicator 
in the viewfinder (where the 
icon also
lights) and the exposure compensation
indicator on the LCD panel.
• On the viewfinder’s exposure level scale,
any position above the standard exposure
index indicates overexposure and any
position below it indicates underexposure.
On the LCD panel, any position on the +
side indicates overexposure and any
position on the – side indicates
underexposure.
• To cancel exposure compensation, set the
amount to the standard exposure index
(zero).
