k20d: custom func# 10

What exactly is this "auto EV compensation?" I think it's on by default. Any harm in turning it off? Does it affect the function of green-button in TAV/M modes?

If you set shutter speed to, say, 1/100 in shutter priority mode and there's too much light so that even with the lens stopped down to f/22 and ISO 100 the camera will overexpose with that setting on the camera will increase the shutter speed instead of taking an overexpose picture. Same for underexposure when going over the set iso limit.

Humm, I couldn't make it work to correct underexposure (in Av mode at least)... Overexposure is easily corrected (the camera choose a smaller aperture), but it does nothing to prevent underexposure...

There must be some limitations...
