Sony A7 owners

I have been using in camera exposure meters for over 20 years, but I can’t figure out my new Sony A7

If you own a Sony A7 can you please try to help me?

Put you camera in manual mode.

Set your exposure so that your exposure meter is balanced to 0

Then, start to slowly over or under expose the photo.

Inside your viewfinder only

What happens after you pass the +/-2 mark?

Does your camera indicate +/- 3 or 4 or 5?

What indicators does your exposure meter give you when your lets say 6 stops over?

My meter has a +/- 5 stop range but will only indicate up to +/-2, the rest being grayed out, after which point, two flashing arrows appear on both sides of the meter.

Normally, only one arrow should appear, directing you which way to go.

Also note, I do not use auto ISO.

Thanks everyone.
