In my manual mode on my Kx, It do not have control over the EV Value, unless I adjust the speed or appeture value. I thought Manual allows full control over the needed settings? I am a bit confused here, any one care to explain the basics please?

Program modes allow ev control...
manual does not if you want to over or under expose, you are in manual to use the aperture or shutter or iso settings to control the exposure, the camera will not "Auto" ajust anything for you...
you can however set up your "Auto Bracketing" feature in manual...
Fired many shots. Didn't kill anything.

The EV value, by which you mean exposure compensation is a way of tweaking non manual modes eg Aperture or shutter priorities. In fully manual you set the aperture and shutter (and iso) so there is no nead to "tweak" using exposure compensation.

I just played around and what you guys mentioned is making more and more sense. One thing though, I have changed the AWB for Shade - Shooting indoors with minimal natural light. I currently have a flashgun attached to the camera, is there a need to increase the iso? I am currently shooting using 200, will this about okay or I need to shoot at 400? Thanks.

Not very knowledgeable about flash, but it seems to me that indoor with flash, set the WB to flash, if your using flash you should only need ISO 200,increase the flash if you can rather than the iso.

White Balance has nothing to do with the light intensity but the colours, if you're using the flash then I would leave the White Balance on Auto since the flash is around daylight colour and the AWB handles that very well.

For the flash use ISO200 if the flash needs to work too hard simply increase the ISO.
