Hey guys, I'm going back and forth with my D750 and my F100 and usually when I pick up my F100 the exposure meter in the viewfinder gets me every time.

Is there any way to flip my exposure meter so it matches my D750's?

I know that I can flit it in the D750, but it is already intuitive for me to have the + on the right and the - on the left, even though I'm young I already have been shooting like that all my life

 

Thanks :D

The reason that Nikon meters read backwards in the old days is that they follow the aperture ring on older lenses. There is no custom function for flipping the meter scale in any analog body, and it wasn't possible in the early digitals either. It wasn't until the D3/D300 generation this became a reality.

Might as well be familiar with it, it gets only a couple of shots until it gets normal to read!

Thank you!! @Merco_61
