Can someone explain to me why you cannot change the EV Value for the Camera when you are in Manual (M) Mode.  It will show a - and + sign with Auto, A and S but not M.

Because in manual mode you change the ISO and shutter speed, which is what results in the EV change.

Because the setting you are asking about is the autoexposure over-ride setting.
You use this to set the camera to over or under-expose the auto setting by the number of stops you dial in.
In manual exposure, the camera ignores autoexposure values.
If you want to vary your exposure settings in manual mode, you do it directly.

So you dial in your settings until this reads Zero and you have the correct exposure?

EV setting is what the auto setting is at. 0 means you are matching the auto setting. Plus or minus is the difference from the auto.

You have what the computer THINKS is the correct exposure, yes.

Although good camera let you set EV in M in conjuction with auto iso... very useful for filming because you could set F5.6,  1/50, auto iso but -2/3 exp compensation. My 1Dx II let you do this, it also allow the iso to change gracefully during filming something that the P4p does not well at all so basically you need to film all in Manual including iso....

Agree with 2#. In Manual mode, EV will be adjusted along with the ISO and Shutter speed.

I agree with #7.
It would be ONE thing if the MavPro manual gave a hint on this. Otherwise, what else can one do except understand & use EV as it is commonly used by 99% of the rest of the planet.
Much as I like my Mavic, the level of documentation and software glitches from DJI reminds me of my programming days at a community college.
