Does any one know why I am not seeing the exposure compensation window on top left of camera when I press the BRK button I see 4 AC with the multiple icon. Not see where to set the the exposure difference for over & under. I have CH continuous High set, e5 if AE flash, e6 flash/speed/aperture, e7 is MTR>under>over. Please help.

On the top of the camera, on the right side, just behind the on/off ring, you'll find the +/- Ev button. Press and hold it - the top LCD will change to show only the current Ev setting. Keep pressing the Ev button, then rotate the rear command dial to set exposure compensation.

Camera orientation (left vs right) is taken from the photographer's point of view.

Thanks. I tried that & it didn't bring up compensation window. So, I ended up doing a reset back to factory and then went back in and reset bracketing menu. Now it works don't know what was set wrong, but something was definitely off. Thanks for input always appreciate the time taken.

I'm not sure what you are really asking here, or why you are looking for the exposure comp. when you also ask for Bracketing.


However, if you want to set-up BKT, then chose AE+Flash (for at start) and then press the BKT button - while pressing the BKT button, turn the primary command wheel to set the number of frames for the bracketing e.g 3F. and then while still pressing the BKT, turn the secondary command wheel to set the stops between the frames e.g. 1.0. and that it - then go shoot.

EDIT. Oh well, I see a reset fixed it...

Clarification please - I think I've misunderstood you. Exposure compensation settings and exposure bracketing settings are two entirely different things. Which is it you're asking about?
