| p.1 #16 · 1dx exposure bar not displayed on top LCD in Manual Mode? |
If I understand correctly, you are using the exposure meter reading on the top LCD to approximate the proper exposure, and then fine tuning it/setting it manually. Basically using the camera's light meter to gauge the scene. In that instance, I can see why having the display on the LCD would be useful. I also didn't notice until you mentioned it

The point is that on cameras other than a 1D the bar serves two purposes: in manual it's a meter reading, in other modes it shows exposure compensation. Which raises the question: Why did Canon choose to do things differently with the 1D?
