appropriate exposure due to the difference 
of brightness between the subject and the 
background.

Compensate the exposure toward positive.

Properly exposed

Over exposed

Compensate the exposure toward negative.

[

EXPOSURE] appears and 

then compensate the exposure.

• You can compensate from 

j2 EV  to 

i2 EV in steps of 1/3 EV.

• EV is an abbreviation of Exposure Value, 

and it is the amount of light given to the 
CCD by the aperture value and the shutter 
speed.

• The compensation range of the exposure 

will be limited depending on the 
brightness of the subject.

• The exposure compensation value 

appears on the lower left of the screen.

• The set exposure value is memorized 

even if the camera is turned off.
