What does exposure compensation do? If I take a photo with a given shutter speed, aperature, and ISO, and then take the same shot with +1EV or -1EV, what is actually happening? Is this just a gain ...
What's the right way to use spot metering? Is it better to use in manual mode than one of the priority modes? There's a question about when to use spot metering, but none that serves as a tutorial to ...
Is there a difference between exposure and shutter speed, or are the terms interchangeable? I read that "If you use a quick shutter speed, you can just raise the exposure to compensate." Is this ...
I understand (ref) that I can do my own post processing to get the same effect that Active D-Lighting gives. But does the in-camera ADL get applied to the raw image data or is it only done to the ...
Spot metering is my preferred metering mode on the Canon 50D. This allows me to nail the exposure first time -- 99% of the time -- by using AE-lock on my subject and applying the desired amount of ...
Let say that we have the following values, as an example: Shutter speed: 1/40 Aperture: 2 ISO: 1000 How can I get the EV number for this exposure, extract (or add) an EV value (0.33, 0.66 etc.) and ...
I'm looking for an iPhone app that features exposure compensation, any suggestions?
I have been thinking about the Zone System and its goal of maximising image quality given the limitations of film sensitivity and the necessity to choose specific developing parameters. Clearly you ...
Should this be done using image processing software like Photoshop or with the camera's built–in function? It seems to me a program like Photoshop could use much better algorithm than what is ...
When I use the auto ISO setting in manual mode I can not find a way to dial in the exposure compensation on my Canon 550D. Is this possible at all? I encountered this in a situation where I wanted to ...
