Re: Yep, you got me!

Yeah when you go to press the shutter down and it locks exposure it is locking it to what it thinks is a balanced exposure based on balancing the greys in the image. But, you may decide it is picking to high or low and then you have to either shoot in full manual or use the exposure compensation dial to make it as dark or light as you want. But when you do so you will notice that when you move that dial, your ISO is changing. Or, if the ISO doesn't have room to change your shutter speed or aperture is changing. And if all three are already at their limit (f2, 1/2000, iso50) then it can't change at all.
