There are two ways to deal with this situation. Either dial in the 
compensation on the back of the camera, which gives the advantage of the 
continuously variable shutter speeds (which is why I believe the M7 is 
inherently more accurate),  or simply turn the shutter speed dial and 
work it exactly as you do with an M6.
