Rude much?

Not every racing image has to be panned. And the frozen wheels were from using a flash under dark trees.

So thanks for the "warm" welcome. Deleted my pictures. I hope you're happy now.

Don't let people intimidate you, you post your images up again. ;-)a

OK, a couple of shots from from 2 weeks ago. First the feathers. The search for lunch and success. First pic is a big crop. The second is only resized for posting.

And now the fur. Again two weeks ago. He was on the ground eating when I arrived but ran up a tree. Whatever was on the ground was just too good and he came back down to continue eating.

Can you folks give me examples of how you use the exposure compensation when shooting nature or wildlife?

And how is it different that adjusting ISO? I've never had a good handle on EC...

I most often use auto ISO in M mode but too often over exposes my subject.

Or should I use center-weighted average metering?

If you go into the 3rd page of the Disp./Operation section of the menus and select your custom controls you can assign the exposure compensation to the set button and then when you need to you hold it down and adjust exposure compensation with the top dial. That is what I do when I am using auto ISO in M mode.

Try going 100% full manual; it can be painful, but you'll never go back to auto anything.

It does indeed. I shoot in manual with auto ISO quite often. I have customized to adjust EC with the set button and front dial.

Ok well this is awesome - I look forward to experimenting in the field ~

Edit - so does anyone use the back lever (which I think is default for EC) instead of the Set button?

I most often use auto ISO in M mode but too often over exposes my subject.

I am exactly the wrong person to answer as I rarely use EC but all answers so far have not addressed your questions so:

When I remember EC I usually use it when my subject has a bright sky in the background: BIF or bird near tree top and the subject does not occupy a lot of the frame.

How fast can you adjust ISO. One place I shoot and tracking from 12 o'clock to 8 o'clock counter clockwise I can go from ISO 2000 to 16,000 in less than 10 seconds. This mostly happens in the evenings in the fall.

By default, like you, my camera is set to M with auto ISO. There are people here who do not consider this true manual as the camera still picks one of the exposure settings. There is no EC in "full" manual mode.

I would think you know which subject matter / conditions typically exhibits overexposure. Why not dial in some EC at these times?
