When I shoot in A or S mode with my exposure compensation set as 0
the resultant pic have some value of exposure compensation and this
info I can see in the detailed info of the pic on my LCD. I am
confused even though the exposure compensation is set with 0 value why
it has some value on the resultant pic?

Saurabh… I understand that you have a Nikon DSLR. I have the d5100 and I checked how exposure compensation looks on my camera.

The number for exposure compensation appears with the data on a finished image as a number between 5.0 and -5.0 next to the little box with a + or a – on it. When there is exposure compensation the box and number are highlighted. When there is no compensation the box is dimmed and there is no number.

The compensation value can be set before taking the photo in the menu or with the +- button at the top of the camera. If it is truly set to 0.0 the resulting file should only show dimmed out boxes (there is one also for flash) in the data on the screen.

I know that this does not help if your camera is working differently.
I would take it to a dealer to see if it needs to be fixed.

You are smart than me Mandrake.
The success of Sherlock Holmes, not live in his intelligence,
but his powers of observation and his ability to listen.
Some proffesional said : said that I don’t want the camera tell me,
acording at the ISO I chosse, which
is the Shutter speed and diafragm openess?. It No made sense

have you buy a mechanic car to drive in NeW York or Guangdong
or Shanghai China?

My friend the camera shall bring you in automatic, the same result
you obtain in M, S, A, P mode for a particular ISO,Wink if it bring you another result, then
returned to seller, is a Limon camera, that not pass a quality control
and call Consumer Protection, because dellers are making a lot of money
selling defect product buying it at low price and you are paying for
quality product.
