"RE: D5100 exposure compensation"

When using Aperture Priority mode and you change the aperture, the shutter speed must change to keep the same exposure (keeping ISO constant in this case). For example, if f/8 and 1/125th gives you the correct exposure and you change to f/11, then the shutter speed will be 1/60th to give you the same (correct) exposure. When using Exposure Compensation, adding +1 will cause the camera to "overexposure" one stop from what the camera thought should be the "correct" exposure. For example, if f/8 and 1/125th is the "correct" exposure and you then select +1 Exp. Comp, the result will be f/8 and 1/60th.
