I can't seem to find any Exposure Level Indicator display?
I see what you're looking for then, but pardon my continued confusion as changing the exposure compensation does change the shutter speed as I've exampled in this quick vid, so I'm not sure why you're not seeing the effective changes to exposure value while I am. Am I on the same page now? "Correct exposure" is judged by your eye over what the cam sensors are placing, so when you feel the need to adjust, it is because your eyes say so and I still don't know what other feedback besides your eyes you want the cam to give you that it doesn't. Sure hope by your "good" camera comment that you weren't expecting some type of DSLR on our bird with 'priorities' on how the compensation is placed, would be great, but at the price point, can't expect. We have a decent point&shoot, but with video and a bit extra on board. How can they sell us that cam upgrade that you know we're all going to buy when they break out the big modular upgrade guns if they already gave it to us in the beginning .
In general talk, a 1.0 move on EV is equivalent to a full stop.
I'm not following you either. What does a meter do that you're missing?I know the common thought is the histogram is better, and to just ditch the meter. However I've learned, while they are complimentary to each other, they have very specific differences. I think this is why good camera's typically have both.
Thanks for putting up that video, but No you are still not on my page.. IMO correct exposure is NOT judge by your eyes alone, if that were the case there would be no reason for histograms and meters on camera's.
Well I don't know; dji understands the need, as it's incorporated in their app from the P3S up. So yes, no need for a dslr feature list, but when you are working with a platform that is centered around photography I would think it's expected that a simple exposure level meter is incorporated.
Are there any 4k camera's that don't have one??
Really RJ, and NOT, maybe I was a bit brash with the use of "perhaps", but you reciprocated in kind and you didn't see me going all 2nd grader on you. Disturbing reading comprehension how you can see the following sentence, pull out a few words and insinuate I suggested eyes alone are the only judge. Try reading again, note that the underline parts refer to feedback like settings and histogram, the use of your eyes are simply a corrective aspect to the sensors and something the cam doesn't provide.

I watched a P4 camera video a couple months back during research and I don't see a thing there that the XSP doesn't have, what "simple exposure level meter" is incorporated. At around the 18:30 mark he goes to lower his shutter speed in the interest of motion and it raises the exposure from 0 to +2 and then talks about ND filters to compensate for the overexposure, is that what you're talking about? You expect that to happen on the XSP, so adjusting settings and not seeing the EV change on it's own is what's missing for you? If so, how does that "Thanks, but I don't see any feedback to know when I'm at the correct exposure." tell you you're at the "correct" exposure, over your eyes and histogram?
If not, I'm certainly done with trying to figure out wth your complaint is because you have not explained it. How about you show us in a video exactly what you want and expect to be there on one of the DJI's you speak of, if you can't find it on a DJI, how about any 4K cam that explains what you're missing.

Whoa, I meant absolutely no disrespect in my comments. My statement was supposed to be a playful answer to your question "Am I on the same page now?" hence the reason for the . I'm sorry it came across as derogatory, that certainly was not my intention. You are correct, I didn't read your comment carefully, and In the interested of peace, I will end our discussion.
Thank you for trying to help understand what I'm looking for.
