Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Adjusting exposure compensation, part of Learning the Nikon D5200 and D5300.
- The exposure compensation command…is very useful and quite powerful.…It'll likely become one of your…most used options as you shoot.…I find that I'll use it when I'm…dealing with tough lighting situations…that can throw off the camera's light meter.…Particularly things like light or dark backgrounds,…or really strong backlighting.…This command is great for really…controlling the tone of your photos.…With exposure compensation, you can quickly…adjust in fractional or whole-stop increments.…You'll find an exposure compensation button…right here that's easy to reach while shooting.…
You should be able to reach it without having…to take your eye off the view finder.…Simply hold the button down and then use…the command dial to change the value.…Turn the dial to the right to make a…positive exposure compensation.…Turn the dial to the left to get a…negative exposure compensation.…Each one of these little tick marks…is a third of a stop, so, plus a third,…plus two-thirds, plus one stop.…You can adjust up to two stops on the gauge.…
