I have a Nikon 4004S. I didn't know where to post this, and being a noob, I assumed it might fit under the "F4" category, becuase the model number starts with "4", although I am sure the two models are not alike at all.

Anyways, I recently inherited my 4004 from my parents, and have been using it for photography class. However, after shooting and developing my first roll of Kodak B&W ISO400 film, I noticed all of my pictures were grossly overexposed.

I know how to use my light meter, and handle aperture/shutter speed setting. Every picture I took was according to correct exposure as indicated by my light meter ("O" symbol showing).

What could be the cause of this? Is this due to my light meter, or the camera not being set at the right filmspeed? I was under the impression that the 4004 automatically detects and adjusts for filmspeed automatically, as there is no apparent way to set it manually.
