Using exposure flash compensation step value

Normally, when I dial in exposure compensation on my D800, I get changes in third-stop increments. So I go from zero to a third of a stop, two-thirds of a stop, one stop. It works the same way when I am going the other direction. If you like, you can change that. I'm here in the Metering/exposure category of the Custom Setting menu, coming down to B3, Exposure/flash compensation step value. You can see it defaults to a third of a stop between clicks there.

I can bump that up to half or one. I'm going to go ahead and look at half. Now when I dial in exposure compensation, it comes in and it changes in half stop intervals. So I lose some granularity, but I can more speedily zip through my options here. You might even prefer to go to full stops if you know you're in a more extreme situation and that you just want to be quickly dialing in a lot of exposure compensation.
