Having grown up with Digital for the last 8 years, I tend to always underexpose my photos on purpose ... especially when using flash to keep from blowing out the highights. I now have a Nikon D200 and a Fuji S5 Pro and am expecting a D300 this week. Underexposing requires alot of post processing work to correct many images to the correct exposure. But the strategy does work in keep hightlights from being blown out. Am I just paranoid? Is the metering so good on the D300 (even with flash) that I can avoid purposely underexposing? Thanks, ... michael.
