How to Override Autoexposure on Canon T6?

Exposure Compensation on Canon EOS Rebel T6

When you have set your Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6 in the P, S or ‘‘A’ exposure modes, there is a few more Exposure that you can have.

For instance, if your camera main dial is in P mode, then you can rotate the dial for choosing from the various available combination of shutter speed and aperture speed.

While you are in TV mode, you have the opportunity to dial in the Shutter Speed, and when you are in the Av mode, then you can adjust the setting of the Aperture.

And since all these mentioned modes are semiautomatic, the final exposure result will be controlled by the camera.

In the event your picture has turned out to be too dark or too bright while you are shooting in the P mode, then you cannot simply alter the settings to another shutter speed and f-stop combo because, in the end, they will all deliver the same result.

And adjusting the f-stop while in Av mode or changing the shutter speed while in Tv mode won’t be helpful in any way because when you alter the settings of any single mode, the camera will automatically adjust all the other modes for bringing out the same result.

But, this doesn’t mean that you cannot change the final exposure on canon eos rebel t6.

The final exposure result can, of course, be changed, and the secret to it is the Exposure Compensation which is a feature of the camera built for helping it to understand how much darker or brighter the Exposure needs to be in the next shot regardless of you change the shutter or aperture speed.

The Exposure Compensation is one of the first things that you will need to understand while using a Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T61300D.

The Exposure compensation of a camera is signified by E.V. values such as +3.0 E.V. The E.V. value ranges from +5.0 EV to +5.0 EV in your Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel T61300D.

When the E.V. is set to 0.0, it means that there has been, so Exposure set for the camera.

When you want the image to be brighter, you can raise the E.V. value to the positive side. The more the E.V. value on the positive side is, the brighter the image will be.

When you want your image to be a little darker, then you will need to set the E.V. value more on the negative side.

The E.V. value is utterly helpful when one is shooting any dark or bright subject and want to control the lighting.

The best way to control the exposure value is to Press and Hold the Exposure Compensation Button and rotate the main dial at the same time. When you adjust the setting, the E.V. meter of the settings changes in the current exposure value is displayed on the Live View Screen.

Another way of accessing the Quick Control Screen is by using the Quick Control Setting. In the Quick Control setting, highlight the exposure meter and rotate the main dial, which will move the exposure meter. 

You can even access the exposure value from the Shooting Menu 2 of your Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel T61300D.

First, you will need to open the Shooting Menu 2 and then use the cross navigation key, highlight the Exposure Compensation option of your camera and then press Set.

Now, the exposure setting will pop up. Then, using the rotating dial of your Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T61300D, adjust the E.V. value of your camera.

A point to note is when even you will rotate the dial for three notches, the number will be replaced by a triangle.
