- The exposure compensation command…is very useful and quite powerful.…It will 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 viewfinder.…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 1/3, plus 2/3rds, plus one stop.…You can adjust up to two stops on the gauge.…
