I think my 2 year old, D300s with 50,000 shutter clicks is having 2 major metering issues. My question to the forum is, do you think the meter needs to go to the repair shop, or is there a setting that I may be missing.
Most of my shooting is sports with a 70-300mm VR Nikon Lens. Settings: Standard Picture Control Active D-lighting on Auto or HIGH if bright sunlight Fine Tune Optimal Exposure - Zero EV at Zero Aperture Priority at single setting
Issue 1) Occasionally in continuous exposure, a frame will be dark by up to -1 EV
Issue 2) In bright outdoor sunlight, Overexposed by +1/3 to +2/3 Historgram curve peaks at the last quarter (highlight side) increment. Tried using ADL in Auto and High mode. High mode is about a 1/8 EV improvement. With normal lighting, or cloudy day, exposure is OK. I also shoot at the same time/location with a D90. Exposures seem to be right on , with the Historgram curve peaks in the middle.
