I recently purchased a D1h because I'm especially interested in fire photography so it must go fast without to worry much about the settings.
I made some test pictures and it seems that in Programmed Auto they are all overexposed esp. when a building is lightened directly by sunshine. The problem occurs when I take general pictures of complete buildings (streets) and not when I focus on the roof or a window f.e.
Could you help me out what the problem would be, I think it has to do with my settings but I'm not sure.
Pictures taken with the following settings :
JPEG (8bit) fine
Image size : 2000 x 1312
Lens : 35-70 f/3.5-4.5
Focal length : 35mm
Exp. Mode : Programmed Auto
Metering mode : Multi-Pattern
1/400sec - f/10
Exp. Comp. : O EV
Sensitivity : 200
White Balance : auto
AF mode : AF-S
Tone Comp : Normal
Color mode : mode I (sRGB)
Hue Adjustment : O°
Sharpening : high
Noise reduction.
I can always send some pictures
I appreciate you help on this one.
