Weird exposures with DP2M
Jul 21, 2014

I've mentioned this before and managed to fix it but I can reproduce the behaviour now.

I've got my DP2M set up using the C1 memory and it works fine in this mode. But today I forgot I use C1 and shot in A mode by mistake.  And it is doing this weird thing whereby the exposure bears no resemblance to the set exposure eg I shoot with exposure comp set to 0 and it shoots frames at -3 stops, +2.7 stops etc.  I can watch it happening: the screen is showing 0 or +.3 (or whatever), I press the button and the review shots pops up showing -2.7 or something equally unrelated.  It doesn't do this on the C1 setting so it has to be something I've accidentally set in A mode but I can't figure it out...
