1Dx EC in Manual Mode Question
« on: April 14, 2014, 11:41:44 AM »
Excuse my ignorance (not just on this topic, but everything else too). 

I noticed recently that having been shooting in Tv mode with a +2/3 EC, I must have changed some setting where it obeys the EC setting in Manual.  Not full manual obviously, but when using auto ISO.  So for instance if I shoot at 1/500s, +2/3 EC in Tv mode, then switch to M mode and set 1/500s, f/4, auto ISO, the +2/3 EC still remains and it adjusts accordingly.  Previously, when I switched from Av or Tv mode back to M mode, the EC bar was never there and I couldn't do it.  I wonder what I did?  I'll check through my settings more but could it be from the newest firmware version where you CAN do EC in M mode and I just didn't know it?  Thanks.

Yes, that was one of the features added in the v2 firmware update.

Set your camera to M and ISO to auto. Push the Q-button. You´ll see a field called M. You can adjust your EC there, with the back wheel.

No technical reason, AFAIK.  Can and will aren't the same, unfortunately.  But they added f/8 AF to the 5DIII, so I'd say there's hope.
