Any ideas? - My Exposure Compansation on my K-M has gone on the blink - I normally leave it set at +0.3 ev with the occasional change to +1.0 for aerial shots.
Anyway when I went to change it for some bluebell shots at Yoxall Lodge yesterday, the resulting ev was plus 1.3 to what ever I set (+0.3 = +1.6 etc)- any ideas please. And of course the warranty ran out at the end of April!!!

Try the old trick of taking the battery out and leaving it for a while. They can often reset things. Otherwise there is a option to reset everything to factory defaults, so try that. Otherwise, I'm stumped.

BTW, the warranty is only in addition to your statutory rights. One can reasonably expect a new camera to work for longer than 12 months and so you should still be able to get it repaired at no cost.

Sorry folks, problem sorted - the exposure bracketing feature was turned on (not sure how) & I didn't notice anything on the LCD, its only when I checked my recent shots of bluebells that I realised 6 different shots had a mixture of three levels of exposure??
I will put the usable ones on Flickr when I have a spare minute, Lol!
Sorry about any confusion caused by my errors.

Any idea where that is laid down in law Kris?
