I may have been unclear. The tutorial is the Nikon Digitutor mentioned in another thread http://www.nikondigitutor.com/eng/d600/index.html and it did not suggest this work-round. I thought of it after they discussed using Shutter Priority in Live View. My assumption is that if the shutter speed is fixed, the only way the camera could compensate on the exposure would be to adjust the aperture. If I'm wrong, does the camera compensate in some other way or does exposure compensation not work at all in live view?
