This is interesting. I find my D800 overexposing and blowing highlights in manual mode. I usually have to -3 in exposure compensation to get really great outdoor photos.

Hi

Exposure compensation as far as I am aware does nothing in manual mode. The whole purpose of manual exposure is to set the exposure correctly.

Therefore if you find over exposure or under exposure in manual mode when using the built in meter, you would compensate by using the aperture or the shutter speed.
