OK, perhaps this suits you better:

Ha Ha.

I get your frustration, I honestly do.  But I can't help but be amused that there is some amount of irony in you eschewing technology on one hand (smart phones, kindles), and yet you must have been on the pre-order list to be one of the early recipients of the 7D2 on the other.

Well, I was shooting 2 30D's on which I had had to have the shutter mechanisms replaced in the last nine months or so, and I do earn my living with a camera so, yes, I pre-ordered the 7D MKII, but not because I have been champing at the bit to get one, but more because I was sweating out the wait to replace at least one of my aged veterans.  I shoot a bit of fast moving action and the 7D MKII does have ONE feature that I coveted and that is the ability of the auto focus to lock on and track a subject as it moves ACROSS the field of view, something that I have always had trouble with and I do appreciate the weather sealing.  As I said earlier, I was perfectly happy shooting film, market forces moved me to digital, not a desire for the cool new stuff.  I still prefer Fuji velvia 50, but it is just too impractical in today's atmosphere.  (I do wish I hadn't traded in my Bronica GS1 system).

Canon 7Dii manual mode exposure compensation?

Hi,

 

I have trouble to do exposure compensation in manual mode in 7Dii.

 

When I in manual mode, and when I move to exposure compensation it always become AEB setting why?

 

I have no problem to set expnsure compensation in other model like AV or TV.

 

Is there some setting which I need to do? 

 

Thank you

Re: Canon 7DII

If you set ISO to Auto, then AEC will become available. I think this shooting mode should have a name, Ev, for Exposure Priority.

Oh, yeah. I suggest programming the [SET] button for AEC. By keeping it pressed, you can dial in AEC. The viewfinder display in the 7D2 seems expressly designed for this mode of operation.
