Thom says,It's also possible that the camera was not set to P mode even though Melissa understandably thought it was. I can't tell you how many times my mode dial had been accidentally moved without me realizing it until I noticed the wonky exposure settings.
Here are the settings I got from Photoshop:It is possible to have exposure settings that work indoors, but not outside. If you post the exposure settings from the image we can be of more help. I experienced a similar issue with one of my lenses when the aperture blades got sticky and wouldn't close fast enough.
The one that is the bright picture goes with the settings that is named Exposure 1Post #1.
It was shot outside at a rest stop. Plus what is so strange is I took pictures this summer on vacation using the Nikon 80-400 outside and I did not get one picture that looked over exposed and the camera was in P mode. I had the same issue with my D3s but not my D2x so I don't know what the issue can be but I'm frustrated.In Matrix metering, the location of the focus point can greatly affect your exposure reading. That could be why the white words are white.
Also, looks like it was shot through a window screen—that would throw off the exposure reading.
I did. I posted both of them. The one that I took indoors and the one I took outside of my daughter. forget the one that I took outside at the rest stop. I also posted the two pictures of the settings of my daughter. One was from outside and the other from inside the house. The one named Exposure 2 goes with picture one and the one named exposure one goes with picture two.Do you realize the number of times it has been recommended that you post the photo so people can help you out? This is now the fifth post making that recommendation. Yet you don't even respond to those suggestions.
You have it the wrong way round. To quote what I pointed out "As you say, the photo Exposure 2 relates to the first photo (0067) and exposure 1 relates to the second photo (0068)."I'm wondering if the camera's meter is working accurately. The overly bright photo, which was captured outdoors, was captured using exposure settings that are six stops greater than the other photo. Assuming the light outdoors was brighter or the same as the indoor light, that's really wonky.
