01 AUTO LIGHT­ING OP­TI­MIZER OFF

The ALO can help to boost shad­ows and reign in high­lights, but can fight against any ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion. Switch off ALO be­fore adding pos­i­tive ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion to brighten im­ages, or neg­a­tive com­pen­sa­tion to darken them.

02 GET COM­PEN­SA­TION

Ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion is gen­er­ally avail­able in the Quick menu, as well as from con­trols on the rear of the cam­era body. There’s a risk of ap­ply­ing ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion ac­ci­den­tally, un­less you en­gage the un­der­ly­ing Lock lever.

03 BRACK­ET­ING EX­PO­SURES

You can set the start­ing point and in­cre­men­tal value of ex­po­sure com­pen­sa­tion for a se­ries of ‘ex­po­sure brack­eted’ shots. When us­ing Con­tin­u­ous drive mode, shoot­ing will cease after the se­quence is com­plete.
