Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Exposure level increments, part of Canon 60D Essential Training.
By now you should know that when you use Exposure Compensation, this little…meter moves one small notch at a time, and each one of those notches is a third of a stop.…So I'm going from as metered, to one-third stop over, two-third stops over, one stop over.…If you would like this display to be less granular, there's a custom…function you can change.…If I go in here to the Menu, and go to the Custom Function menu, and into this…first group of Custom Functions, Exposure, the very first item is Exposure level increments.…It defaults to one-third stop, but I also have an option for one-half stop, so…I'm going to change that out there.…
And now my Exposure Compensation dial changes in half-stop increments.…So watch what happens here: I'm going to meter, so this is as metered.…If I dial it up one, I get this; both of these highlight.…That indicates one half-stop over, and then up from there is one stop over.…In other words, there is now only one space between each full stop increment.…So if you happen to think better in half-stop increments than third-stop…
