• On the LCD panel, the plus side of the
scale indicates overexposure and the
minus side indicates underexposure. The
sample LCD panel on the left shows a
flash exposure compensation amount of
+2/3 stop.
• The flash exposure compensation amount is retained even when the <
> switch
is set to <
>.
• The flash exposure compensation amount can also be set with certain Canon
Speedlites. If flash exposure compensation is set with both the camera and the
Speedlite, the flash exposure compensation amount set with the Speedlite will
override the one set with the camera.
