Where is manual exposure/backlight control ?

On my new Canon SX520, I can't find any way to do exposure compensation or even a simple backlight control. As I do much photography at the beach, backlight compensation is necessary.

Acccording to the manual you just need to press the +/- button on the back of the camera while in the P mode (works in Av, Tv, and M modes to) and then turn the dial to adjust in 1/3 increments.

Thanks. The manual exposure control indeed only appears in those modes you mentioned.
