I've recently upgraded from D90 to a D700. I've found quite few posts on where people are finding that their D700's are over exposing by 1 or 2 stops. So for me what is happening is this: 1) My pictures are under exposed by 1 stop when shooting in "centre weighted" metering mode 2) Over exposed by 1 to 2 stops in "spot metering" mode 3) Under exposed by 1 to 2 stops in "3D color matrix" mode So for all my test shots the pictures are taken of the same subject under the exact same lighting circumstances. All pictures were taken with the same settings, the only variable was the metering of each picture, in which I changed the shutter speed. I took 3 pictures for each metering mode; the first picture was set to "proper" exposure, second was 1 stop over exposed and third was 2 stops over exposed. What I used to gauge proper exposure was my histograms. I hope this isn't too confusing I'm definitely not an expert on the D700 and maybe it is just an over site of mine that using a different metering mode will result in different exposures? I would think not. I'm just not happy with my D700, and was getting more consistent results with my D90. All of my settings are set to factory default except for my dynamic af area which is set to 51 points. Is there something that I'm missing or do I have a faulty camera? My exposure always seems off . Any insights would be greatly appreciated!
