Join Ben Long for an in-depth discussion in this video Reverse indicators, part of Shooting with the Nikon D5100.
By default, the exposure compensation indicator that you see in your viewfinder…shows positive exposure compensation to the left and negative exposure…compensation to the right.…If you prefer at the other way around, with negative to the left and positive…to the right--maybe you are coming from a Canon camera or maybe that's just…more how you think--…you can change a custom function that will alter that.…If I go in here to Controls and down to Reverse indicators, you can see here is…my default behavior, and this should look familiar to you.…This is just what you see in your viewfinder: plus over here, minus over here.…
I can swap this around, so now plus is over here and minus is on the left.…Just hit OK and now the indicator will look different.…
