I am an absolute novice, but have been quite keen for some time to try a DSLR. After months and months of research i decided to take the plunge and invest in a D300 with a 18-200 nikkor Dx lens.

My passion is landscapes and asian architecture, which i have been blessed with here in Japan. To cut a long story short I set out with my D300 switch to Programmed Auto, Iso auto with base set at 200, Active D lighting set to normal. The photo's i came away with where really poor. The camera seemed to either under expose, over expose, or both at the same time. There also is a lack of detail.

Basically I am not sure if i have just a very poorly set up camera due to my lack of knowledge, or have bought a dud which needs to be taken back for repairs.

Can someone help? at my wits end
