You don't have any control over the aperture and shutter speed pair but you should have soem kind of exposure compensation (if you're not in fully automatic mode). If the photo is overexposed you have to apply negative compensation and if underexposed you give positive compensation. The problem is that light meters think that a white cat and a black cat are identical gray cats.VictorBucuresti, Romaniahttp://s106.photobucket.com/albums/m268/victor_petcu/http://picasaweb.google.com/teodor.nitica/..
Yes it does have the exposure bracket but I don't find it of much help. The trick I sometimes employ is point my camera to a dark area and lock the exposure there as it gives me low shutter speed. but a dark object at the same distance to give correct focus is not always available...
Exposure compensation is not exposure bracket.If you have it (read in the manual) here is how to use it..
You have a scene is more dark than light objects then you have to compensate for the misjudgment of the light meter and apply a negative compensation (up to a stop). Let's assume you have a black cat that almost fills the frame. If you let the exposure compensation on 0 you'll get a gray cat. If you compensate -1 stop you'll have a black cat in the photo..
If you make a portrait of a Caucasian person complexion you need to compensate about +1 stop otherwise the portrait will be underexposed..

As suggested there are a number of things you can do to control the exposure. These include setting the ISO low or high and using the +/- EV compensation..
What I do with an old Canon s400 is also to employ exposure lock: meter off the important part of the subject with the shutter half pressed and then recompose back onto the main shot. It works quite well.John.Please visit me at:http://www.pbase.com/johnfr/backtothebridgehttp://www.pbase.com/johnfr/digital_dartmoor..
If you're outside, grass is 18% neutral density gray. Meter off that...
