Exposure level increments

By now you should be comfortable with Exposure compensation and the Exposure compensation readout right here. When I adjust Exposure compensation, by default I'm going in 1/3 stop increments, so that's one stop of over exposure. This is 2/3 of a stop. That's 1/3 of a stop. If you prefer to think in half stop increments or if you don't want that much granularity between your big exposure compensation chunks, there's a custom function you can change. I'm going to go here into menu and go into Custom Functions, and the very first thing is Exposure level increments.

By default, I'm at 1/3 of stop. If I want I can hit OK, scroll down to here and choose 1:1/2-stop. Now, you notice that my Exposure compensation readout only has one notch between each full stop, so that's 1/2 stop of overcompensation and that's one full stop. So if you prefer thinking in half stops rather than whole stops that's just an easy way to simplify things.
