I've been expirementing using my new D7000 in lower light situations like cloudy, hazy days.

What is your opinions on which is the better option to brighten a picture without decreasing its overall quality, raise the exposure compensation or raise the ISO without going above ISO 400? I shoot using aperture priority, and always ensure my shutter speed is at least 1-1/2 times greater than than the focal length.

I prefer not to use Active D-lighting at this time.

Thanks

Edit:

P.S. Has anyone else got so frustrated with accidentally hitting the DOF button, that you changed it to another function?
