"Where is exposure indicator in Aperture Mode"


CA
          

I am very very new to photography and just purchased the D7000.

In Aperture Mode the exposure indicator is not on or visable through the viewfinder. It is in S and M mode. Am I missing something???

Are you sure it's there in S mode when shooting a decently lighted scene?

In A mode and S mode the camera adjust speed and aperture respectively to get a correct exposure so showing the indicator is of no value...

I'm sure it's there in S mode, as is the owner's manual.

Agreed, but only when the aperture cannot be set to a value giving correct exposure. At least that's the behaviour on the D800.

Hi, and welcome to Nikonians.

That's a feature, not a bug.

If you look at the owner's manual, page 70, where modes are discussed, you'll see that in A mode there is no mention of the exposure meter.

Which makes sense: if you're shooting in A mode, you've picked a specific aperture already, regardless of metering, and you're letting the camera determine shutter speed. Why do you need the exposure meter which is controlled by changing the aperture?

If you want to change the aperture to control your exposure, you won't be shooting in A mode. You'll be in S or M.

In S mode, the exposure indicator is only on when you change the exposure using the +- button on top of the camera to the right and below the off/on button. Hope this helps.
