Exposure compensation allows you to increase or decrease the exposure of an image. Effectively you are telling the camera, that you want it to be brighter or darkerExposure compensation is generally adjustable in 1/3 or 1/2 EV or “stops.” Each full “stop” adjustment either doubles or halves the amount of light reaching the image sensor depending on whether it is a +1 or -1 adjustment.Therefore, an exposure compensation adjustment of +1 EV will result in an image that is twice as bright as the base exposure. Equally, an exposure compensation adjustment of -1 EV will result in an image that is half as bright as the base exposure.0 EV +1EV (+ 1 stop) -1EV (-1 stop)
