Exposure compensation in Manual mode

Hiya, I may have missed something but when I use Manual mode the exposure comp shows -3 and I can't find a way of changing it. Ive looked on the net and it says that it can't be changed if auto iso is selected so I've selected an iso and still can't find any way of adjusting exposyre. Don't know if this makes any difference but I am using 4/3 lenses with an adaptor.
Cheers,Dave

Re: Exposure compensation in Manual mode

When in manual mode the exposure compensation is showing you where you are with your exposure. It goes from -3.0 through 0 to +3.0 as you adjust the aperture speed and ISO.

So it's acting like a light meter for you.

Assuming you are referring to the EM-1v2 then turn ael switch to position 2, then adjust exposure compensation.
