| p.1 #4 · p.1 #4 · D800 and exposure compensation in manual mode |
Can someone enlighten me on the behavior of exposure compensation in manual mode...
1) Easy exposure compensation set to on (custom b4)
2) In aperture priority rotating the front dial behaves as expected: left decreases shutter speed, right increases
3) Switch to manual mode
4) Rotating the front dial to the left now INCREASES the shutter speed, right DECREASES it.
How in the world did Nikon come up with that brilliant idea? Is there a logical reason for this choice?
1) In aperture priority set exposure compensation to zero
2) Meter some object, note aperture and shutter speed
3) Switch to manual mode, set same...Show more →
So you got one in the end?
The default settings are that front dial controls aperture rather than shutter speed in manual mode, easy exposure comp does not affect this.If you want to set it to default, you can change this using the Change Main/Sub Dial option. If you're happy with the way round you have currently, in f9 you have the option to reverse the direction of the dials.
If the indicators are pissing you off, you have the option to change those too in f12.
As for the second, by default exposure comp (both easy and normal) is not tied to shooting mode. If you want it to be, the closest you can get is to set easy exposure comp to on (Auto reset). Then the setting will disappear each time the meter is switched off.
