Correcting Image Brightness EV Shift

106

ADVANCED SETTINGS

You can manually adjust an image’s exposure value (EV value) 

before shooting it. This feature helps to achieve better results 

when shooting a backlit subject, a strongly lit subject indoors, or 

a subject that is against a dark background.

Exposure Compensation Value: –2.0EV to +2.0EV

Unit: 1/3EV

1.

In the REC mode, press [SET].

2.

Use [

S] and [T] to 

select the third option 
from the bottom (EV 
Shift).

3.

Use [

W] and [X] to adjust the exposure 

compensation value.

[

X]: Increases the EV value. A higher EV value is best used 

for light-colored subjects and backlit subjects.
* Increasing the EV value also works well with the 

BEST SHOT “Backlight” scene.

[

W]: Decreases the EV value. A lower EV value is best for 

dark-color subjects and for shooting outdoors on a 

clear day.

To cancel exposure compensation, adjust the value until it 

becomes 0.0.
