Canon 1D MKIII Question
Mar 1, 2013

Please help this old man. Am I doing something wrong, or am I in early Alzheimer? I have owned this camera more than five years.

When this camera is in Av, Tv or P mode and I press the shutter half way I see the exposure indicator on the right side of the viewfinder, or if using live view I see the exposure indicator on the back LCD. I also see the exposure indicator on the top LCD. I realize the exposure indicator is showing exposure compensation.

If I switch over to M mode I can see the same indicators, except it does not show on the top LCD.

Has my camera always operated in this fashion or has a problem recently developed?

Thanks, Floyd

P.S. My 40D shows the top LCD exposure indicator in all modes including M.

Newbie, having fun.
