Normally, exposure is set automatically (auto exposure). Based on the exposure value set by auto exposure, you can make the entire image brighter or darker if you adjust [Exposure Comp.] to the plus side or minus side, respectively (exposure compensation).
- Press exposure compensation button.
- You can also set this function by selecting MENU → (Camera Settings1) → [Exposure Comp.].
- Select the desired setting by pressing the multi-selector left/right.
- You can adjust the exposure in a range of -5.0 EV to + 5.0 EV.
- You can check the exposure value you set on the shooting screen (A).
- You cannot perform the exposure compensation in the following shooting modes:
- [Intelligent Auto]
- When using [Manual Exposure], you can perform the exposure compensation only when [ISO] is set to [ISO AUTO].
- Only a value between -3.0 EV and + 3.0 EV with the equivalent image brightness appears on the screen when shooting. If you set an exposure beyond this range, the image brightness on the screen does not show the effect, but it will be reflected in the recorded image.
- You can adjust the exposure in a range of -2.0 EV to +2.0 EV for movies.
- If you shoot a subject in extremely bright or dark conditions, or when you use the flash, you may not be able to get a satisfactory effect.
