What is the Exposure Compensation of a Digital Camera?
- Nov 19, 2018 -

Exposure compensation is an exposure control method of a digital camera, usually around ±2-3 EV. If the ambient light source is dark, you can increase the exposure value (for example + 1EV, + 2EV) to highlight the sharpness of the image. During the shooting, if you press half the shutter, the LCD will display an image similar to the final rendering, focus and start exposure. The exposure at this time is the exposure of the final photo. If the image is too bright or too dark, it means that the camera's auto metering accuracy is deviation. It is necessary to force exposure compensation. However, sometimes the brightness displayed during shooting is different from the actual shooting result. A digital camera can view photos as soon as they are taken. At this point, the brightness of the captured image can be seen more accurately, and there will be no more differences. If the result is noticeably bright or dark, retake the shot and force the exposure compensation.
