Lets say you are shooting A priority and you'd like to make a small change to the exposure, what is the benfit of moving an exposure comp wheel and not just changing the shutter speed?

If you won't set exposure compensation, either:

1. aperture will automatically adjust to counter your shutter speed.

or

2. shutter speed won't change.
