Exposure compensation

Dial or buttons on a camera that allow the user to override the automatic exposure mode. Most cameras have +/-2 stops control that is enough to compensate in situations where the camera’s system would normally be fooled. Can also be used to modify contrast when a film is to be pushed or pulled.
