I was going about usual taking photos, when I realized that all of them were incredibly over exposed. I didn't change any settings since my last time using the camera, so I was confused when I noticed that it had started automatically picking the exposure compensation even when auto ISO is turned on. I found a temporary work-around by holding down the SET button and choosing the exposure compensation while pressing the shutter button but I never had to do that in the past. Any help would be much appreciated.
I tried it on my 80D and I believe what you are seeing is the exposure compensation meter switching to an exposure level meter function in Manual shooting mode. Appears to be normal. It is just displaying how far from a normal exposure you have the shutter and aperture set at. Centered, it would indicate a correct exposure.
"Try resetting camera settings and custom functions back to default." "I have already done this and the problem still persists"
You probably did not do a full reset. You must also clear all custom settings. Since exposure comp is not a default setting going back to factory will set that to zero.
