D3300 exposure compensation
I got a D3300 two weeks ago. To me, it seems to underexpose a little, so I set it to +1/3 stop. My old D40 was the same way. (I also usually shot ASA 400 film at 320.)
Is it just me, or is it common to seem to need a little extra exposure?

To some extent, it depends on what you are used to. Sounds like you like a brighter scene. Feel free to post a before and after photo if you think something is off with the camera.
My D700 shoots a little brighter than my D200. Some folks thought it did so enough that they would turn it down a little since the D700 has that feature; I never bothered.
Nikon is always tweaking things a little.
Another place to look would be to see how your computer monitor is calibrated.
