Re: Question about manual exposure mode on the 5D MK II
In reply to phillos, Feb 6, 2012

You cannot use exposure compensation in manual mode (there is nothing for the camera to compensate with - you are in control of all three variables - shutter speed/aperture/iso).

If you want to keep the shutter speed and aperture fixed and change the exposure then you have only one option - change the ISO.

Dear 5D MKII experts,

I would like to be able to fix the speed and the exposure at a desired value (it's basically what the manual exposure mode does) and then to be able to increment or decrement by 0.3EV step the exposure. Or in others words, combine manual exposure mode and exposure shift/correction fonction.
Do you think it is possible ?
Thanks for your help.
