    Is there a way to set the camera to shoot at minus 2/3 stop in order to get less over exposure. I'm trying to skip auto bracketing and just take single shots. On a film camera I would just change the ISO setting from the film ISO rating but can't figure out how to do it on this camera.

    You can use the scroll wheel to dial in exposure compensation. I always shoot in Aperture priority, and in that mode, you press the scroll wheel to toggle between aperture control and exposure compensation.

    exposure compensation

    I know about using the scroll wheel to change the exposure but I want to set it at minus 2/3 so that it doesn't change back to 0 every time I turn off the camera.
     
  4. It doesn't. Well, my GX-1 remembers the last dialed-in exposure compensation when I turn it back on. In Aperture priority mode.:smile:

    It will remember the exposure compensation in the custom modes.

    Thanks for the simple solution, I didn't realize the exposure comp stayed in memory when the camera was turned off. The scroll knob is so sensitive to inadvertent activation that I never knew which setting was the last one before I turned the camera off.
