I’ve just taken delivery of a D700 and what an awesome piece of kit, I love it.
However it does seem to be over exposing. I’ve only had chance to take a few frames so far, but it’s looking like -1 exposure compensation will be my standard setting to avoid blown highlights. Has anyone else encountered this problem?
I’ve taken the same shot using my D200 and to get rid of the blown highlights and detail in the shadows the settings in camera raw are as follows:-

D200 – Exposure -0.5, Blacks 2
D700 - Exposure -1.5, Blacks 0

I can get the highlights and shadow detail in camera raw but I really don’t think I should have to do this with this camera.

Remember:- One photo out of focus is a mistake, ten photos out of focus are an experimentation, one hundred photos out of focus are a style. (Anonymous)
