Re: Exposure Compensation confusion??

With most cameras the easiest way to think of exposure compensation is that it biases the meter reading. Everything else follows from that regardless of mode.

For example +1EV exposure compensation biases the meter reading by -1EV.

In manual mode, if you camera shows a meter to "zero", you should be able to verify this yourself.

In manual mode, if your camera allows it (many/most do), you can use exposure compensation with ISO Auto to handle rapidly changing light situations. I do this a lot.
