Recording Function and Performance

Q8 When using exposure compensation (EV shift), why does the on-screen indicator becomes red even before six marks are shown?
A8 Exposure compensation (EV shift) is possible within fixed shutter speed and aperture ranges. When shooting a subject indoors where lighting is dim, a backlit subject, a subject in bright outdoor light, or under similar conditions, can cause a limit to be placed on the shift range. When this happens, the further changes in the exposure compensation setting may become impossible (indicated when the on-screen EV shift indicators become red) even before six marks appear on the display to indicate maximum shift.
