Make sure your exposure compensation is at 0. I leave mine at random values all the time and get pissed off at myself when I realize that I have been over/under exposing for the whole day. If it is at zero, is your white balance setting correct?
I shoot with a D90 and I've noticed that if I rely what the meter says, it tends to be over-eposed. Like the others said, shoot manual so that you can have control over this issue. On top of that, I prefer darker images as long as I'm not losing detail, so I tend to go a couple notches under-exposed according to the meter and it usually turns out about right. Keep in mind that there are the clour touch-up options in the menu that can help bring more colour to the image without having an obvious photoshop feeling to them. Thats all I can really think of....
I shoot Nikon? have for awhile now, and in fact, I love my Nikon 10x more than the canon I had. ..proves you don't have the capacity to listen. But then again weren't you the one who bought an extra body "for fun?"
I questioned because he is in need of help, so he obviously doesn't understand cameras very well. I wouldn't put it past ns for that camera to be recommended to him.
But before that child tries to start another ignorant argument with me.. Hunter you need to get us more information. What do you mean the shots are too white. Is everything look bright, like your blacks are somewhat a dark grey? Or or colors that shouldn't be white, white. My guess (off the lack of info you gave us) is that you aren't metering correctly.
What mode are you using?
Are you making sure the meter is right in the middle?
Do you happen to have the metering on spot or center weighted meter? If so switch it to matrix, should give you (for now) more consistent results.
Like Nick Iod said, is your exposure compensation at 0? Ive also made the mistake of setting it higher or lower and forgetting about it.
But most importantly, read the manual, itll be able to help you out. Also learn to shoot manual, there is no need for the 14 different scene modes. M is all you need.
Actually, that argument (in a different thread) was with other people.. it was about you, but the only time you did chime is was "not uh i boughts it!"
But that argument ended with whoever had the last few posts.. (freeskibum?) in which he restated what I was saying, but in a much less bitter tone.
