Does the Exposure compensation setting control aperture or post-brighten the image?

Friends,

Ive been fine tuning my exposure preferences and find that the D300s only allows one step increments in the aperture selection (1.8,2.8,4,5.6...), but not half or a third step increments (3.3, 4.8, 6.7). This is different from manual aperture inputs, where I could, for example, leave the aperture ring a half stop between clicks or something.

I know I can use the EV compensation button to control the exposure- but is that brightening the image as a raw- or mechanically controlling the aperture?

Maybe Im just a foolish old man who should stick with my Nikkormat!

Peace,

Michael
