Why use Exposure Compensation?
6 months ago

Hey everyone,

When on Aperture Priority / Program or Shutter Priority, what is the benefit of using Exposure Compensation when I can just change the Aperture, or Shutter myself?

Cause isn't what Exposure Compensation will do is change the Aperture or Shutter Speed anyways?

Thanks in advance!
