It's Exposure Compensation, Ray - something I use all the time (and your example is for a 1/3rd stop less exposure - prevents burned highlights)

Re: EV= -1/3

I asked markulous because i found this on the net do the settings seem ok to you thanks....Ray

As a result of my first two weeks with the G9, I'm going to try using
> the following settings for most shots w/ the G9:
> My Colors: Contrast, Sharpness, Saturation are all set to -1
> EV= -1/3
> ISO = Auto (unless specifically shooting in low light, then use 400)
> Shooting mode dial set to P
> Safety FE = on
> Safety Shift = off
> AWB
> Flash output = standard
> ND filter = off
> JPG format = Large/Superfine
> Red-Eye = On
> AF-assist = On
> IS Mode = Shoot only

Re: EV= -1/3

Ahh, yup, I rarely use no Exp Comp and -1/3 is definitely my commonest setting (tho' -1.0 is not far behind - especially in sunnier conditions). But then I thoroughly dislike burned highlights and will always attempt to prevent (even if some areas of the image are slightly dark)
