Yes, you can compensate for exposure in the range of +/- 5EV by selecting 1EV, 1/2EV or 1/3EV steps.

Please give me the settings for D300s camera to use nikkor 80-400 mm lens- it focuses and I can take a photo but the phot is pitchblack...

Not sure what you mean by 'the settings'. Just set the ISO, check white balance, make sure no exposure compensation is applied and, if you are shooting in manual, use a shutter speed that gives correct exposure. I'm sure all this information is in the camera manual.

How do I fix over exposed pictures outdoors

Check and make sure you don't have the exposure compensation settings set higher than 0. There is a manual override feature that lets you apply over/under exposure compensation to every photo rather than manually setting it for each shot. Sometimes, this feature can get accidentally changed. If that's not the issue try to reset the camera back to its default settings through the menu feature.

Over exposed photos

Your exposure compensation might not be set correctly. Just behind and to the right of the on/off switch you will see a small button with a "+/-" symbol. That is the exposure compensation switch. When you press it, you will see a number displayed on the LCD. If the number is positive, that is your problem. Positive numbers increase exposure and negative numbers decrease exposure. Set the compensation to 0.0 by turning the rear thumbwheel while depressing the exposure compensation button.

What should exposure compensation be set on

That depends on what you're taking a picture of. Normally, you'd want it on zero.

Use it if the exposure meter produces an exposure too light or too dark for the subject. The camera's meter is designed to render all scenes as a medium gray. If you take a picture of a white dog playing in the snow, the camera will try to render the scene as a medium gray. In this situation you want to use positive exposure compensation to render the scene brighter.

Conversely, if take a picture of a black cat sunning itself on a black car, the camera will again try to render the scene as a medium gray. In this case you want negative exposure compensation to darken the scene.

To change the "exposure compensation" it's saying

When you change the exposure compensation setting, the camera will change the aperture, the shutter speed, or the ISO depending on the mode you're in and the shooting situation. That's what "compensation" means.

How do you change the shutter speed on the finepix s5500?

That depends on the selected shooting mode.

In Program AE, press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed/aperture combination.

In Aperture Priority AE you can control the shutter speed indirectly. Press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the aperture, and the camera will adjust the shutter speed to suit.

In Shutter Priority AE press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed. The camera will adjust the aperture to suit.

In Manual press the exposure compensation button and then up/down on the 4-way button to change the shutter speed. You'll have to press left/right on the 4-way button to select the appropriate aperture.

400D manual mode

You are exposure compensation in manual mode. If you want the shots lighter, either open up the aperture or slow the shutter. The exposure compensation feature is to override the automatic settings determined by the camera in the auto-exposure modes.

D70s problem

Check the exposure compensation setting to ensure it's set for +/-0. To do this, set the camera for Program mode. Locate the exposure compensation mode button - it's the button with a +/- on it immediately behind the on/off switch. With the camera on, hold down this button. If it shows anything other than "0", use the main command dial (the wheel on the back) to change to setting to 0.

The reason the camera works in the Auto mode is because the exposure compensation settings are not available in auto mode, but are available in Program (P), Aperature (A) and Shutter (S) modes.

Photes are very over exposed, Fiji f700

Check your exposure compensation adjustment. If that is set high, then all your shots will be over-exposed until it is brought down to the "0" setting. A relative had this problem with a different camera, and all it took was resetting the exposure compensation to make things work correctly.

I often set cameras with a default exposure compensation of -0.3 EV since blown highlights are so distracting.

Exposure compensation problems

The exposure compensation stays where you leave it unless you do a full reset or a custom reset, and except when you're using scene modes. But you don't need to do a reset to cancel out an exposure compensation -- simply use the exposure compensation button to adjust the compensation back to 0.0EV.
