Correct. Just setting a new zero point on the scale.Thank you so much for the information.... I think I got it!
I would like to provide one correction ...... That is, the exposure compensation is effective even in MANUAL mode. In Manual, if you set the expo comp to EV -2, say, and if you adjust your shutter/aperture to center the expo indicator (-0+), then you get a dark, EV-2 picture.
Do you have f6 set to yesHe is wrong in saying b2 does not work for Manual.
Turning b2 On does two things: First, it will allow you to do Expo Comp without holding the button. For that, you use Rear dial for A, Front dial for S (and P), and NO dial for M (since both are already spoken for). The other thing b2 On does is to allow you to just click the button (not holding down). Then the Control panel shows that you are in the expo comp mode. There, you can do expo adjustment -- using either Front or Rear dial, both works -- for all MASP. You can get out from that mode by clicking the button again.
My Z7 (ver. 2.00) is screwed up.... I cannot get out of b2 mode now... Even if I am now Off, I can still click the button once and I am in the comp mode. My On (Auto reset) does not reset either as Manual says....
I completely agree with you --"Keep asking those questions--it's a great way for all to learn. "
