Thread: exposure compensation in full manual mode

  1. #1

    Default exposure compensation in full manual mode

    Hi guys I would like to clarify this: if you use manual mode (manual iso, aperture and shutterspeed) , exposure compensation won't affect the brightness of the next image you take if all settings remain constant right? if I'm Not wrong exposure comp is just an indicator and it helps when you're in semi Or full auto mode to vary it's setting to correct the exposure. But since you're in full manual the only thing that changes is the indicator in your viewfinder But the brightness of the your image will remain the same is that true?

    Posting because I can't find any threads thank you !

    It's just a metering value in manual mode.

    Exposure is only affected by the settings you use, not some number on a screen.

    what exposure compensation does is alter your camera meter reading, so if the camera is on A, S, P Auto mode, it will affect the exposure, since the camera make the exposure base on the camera meter reading.
    since on manual exposure mode, you set the exposure parameter instead of letting camera decide, so exposure compensation has noting to do except alter the meter reading.



    FYI, you can't find anything on this, cause it is too basic.....

    you want to do search, best is use advanced search, you can limit the search only at particular parameter.

    when you use your phone to do search, you can also limit your search to particular sub forum only, like this topic, you can search in General Discussion/General Tech Talk, Newbies Corner, or Equipment Discussions for better results.
