Is your computer monitor calibrated?

If not it should be if you need to make prints or distribute images electronically.

As Joseph said, you should reduce the brightness of the cameras LCD.

If you were to just adjust CNX or your monitor to look like your cameras LCD then you are likely to get dark prints and the images will still look dark on other people’s computers.

>> “I understand - use the histogram to evaluate the exposure...

How does the histogram look on these images?

At high ISO you should be exposing as bright as possible (histogram biased to the right) without blowing highlights in order to reduce noise.
