Why guess?

From the T6 manual. Driverhank is right - and I knew it too, the T6S is the same way.

You aren't missing much. Just set the exposure where exposure compensation would set it.


So, why is it that my T5 allows me to set exposure compensation.  Like I said, you cannot setup Automatic Exposure Bracketing, but I can still set up exposure compensation.  I can set exposure compensation in <M> mode with every camera body I own.

I just pulled out my T5.  I take that back.  I've got it backwards.  You can do AEB, but not compensation.

Hey, guys. Every time I use my camera on manual mode, I can't adjust my exposure bar [the bar that goes from -5 to +5 or whatever number it goes to] with the radial switch. All of my photos are underexposed. Any suggestions

Hi,

 

The exposure meter in the viewfinder?

 

The bar just tells you if your combination of shutter speed, aperture (FF/number) and ISO settings are giving you a correct exposure, or whether your current combo would give you an incorrect (over or under) exposure.

 

You don't adjust the bar to fix the picture; you adjust one of the 3 variables, to give the camera more or less light, until the bar shows you have set a correct exposure.

Re: Canon Rebel T6 Exposure Bar Error

Another thought, alex88156. First set P mode and see what settings the camera chooses. Then you can set manual mode and use the settings from P as a starting point.
