Pleased to hear it works. No one had replied to this topic despite lots of views so I was starting to think I must be an idiot for suggesting it. I'm sure it's not ideal, but it should give you +/- five stops which is certainly better than none. Now I'm wondering if you can change exposure compensation from a smart phone or tablet which would allow you to make the adjustment hands-free.
