Did you know that there are 3 ways to setup the exposure compensation feature on your Nikon D200?
Well, JP has written up a helpful post explaining this:
- In the first default mode, the camera retains the +/- compensation value even after you switch the camera off, and then back on again
- In the second, setting custom function b5 to ‘On Auto Reset’ puts the D200 into ‘Easy Exposure Compensation’ mode. After selecting a +/- exposure bias for a quick shot or two (useful for a temporary increase or decrease in compensation), the camera will return to whatever +/- value that was set before; this happens as soon as the exposure meter turns off (which should be in the region of mere seconds)
- Finally, you have the Exposure FineTuning feature (custom function b7) which is used to select a new point for the exposure compensation 0 value
