z EV scale
The EV scale on the LCD monitor and in the viewfinder indicates the difference between the standard
exposure (0.0 EV) determined by the camera meter and the set exposure determined by the shutter speed,
and the aperture specified by the photographer (Metered Manual).

• If the exposure is adjusted, the standard exposure (0.0 EV) is shifted by just the corresponding amount of
the adjustment.
z How to use the AEL button in manual mode
While you press and hold the AEL (AE lock) button, the exposure determined by the meter is locked as the
standard exposure (0.0 EV). When you recompose your shot with the AEL (AE lock) button pressed, an
exposure value within the spot metering circle appears as the second standard index.
The following illustrations show a case where the set exposure specified by the photographer is 1.0 EV
more than the locked standard exposure determined by the meter. When the composition is changed in the
viewfinder, the exposure within the spot metering circle is 0.7 EV more than the set exposure, thereby
making it 1.7 EV more than the standard exposure determined by the meter.
