Hi MT,Apologies if I didn't make myself very clear and there was certainly no intent to offend.I do use exposure compensation in many different scenarios but it is tempered by the metering mode I'm using at the time and, should I be using spot or centre-weighted metering, where I am metering from, i.e., what in the scene I am choosing to be my mid-grey point. This should negate the use of exposure compensation as I'm already precisely controlling exposure, though I may use it occasionally if it's already dialled in - I just make adjustments accordingly.Chris

Thereare certainly two ways to approach this problem IMHO:

(a) when shooting .jpg, use center weighted metering and exposure compensation combined.

(b) when shooting RAW, use (a above) and you will find that you have many more light gradations when processing in RAW, which will allow you to fine tune the dynamic range.
