Exposure adjustment

Exposure adjustment is used to deliberately increase or decrease exposure from the normal metered value. Adjustment range is from +4 to -4 stops in half-stop increments. To set:

  1. Press and hold the exposure adjustment button (marked +/-).
  2. Move the shutter speed lever until the desired value appears in the data panel. Set minus (-) numbers to decrease exposure and plus (+) numbers to increase exposure.

Typical situations

When you use center-weighted average metering, the following suggestions will help you decide whether to use exposure adjustment. Individual conditions and intentions will, of course, determine which exposure you choose.
