You cannot adjust exposure comp when you are in
Intellegent Auto, Superior Auto, Scene Selection, or Manual exposure. Being new to the camera at first I was mostly using Superior Auto and adding a little light in PP if necessary.
The Auto Port Framing can be turned off. Menu, Camera, Auto Port Framing, select off. You can also turn off face detection and that will disable Auto Portrait.
Hope this helps.
