  • exposure

    Now I'm getting to grips with my newly aquired E1, I think that with standard settings the exposure is a tad over exposed.
    I thought I'd read somewhere several people saying their default is a 1/3EV under
    Can anyone comment?

    I'm shooting RAW but for various computer issues I can't currently use Elements (of which I'm a beginner) so am just storing shots for later manipulation.
    As a general rule of the thumb is it best to be slightly over rather than underexpose?

    Can't say my E-1 routinely needs compensation (unlike the E620 which I give +1/2 EV).

    In general I would push the histogram up if you can ("over" expose a bit) but not so much that the highlights can't be recovered.

    Look, I'm an old man. I shouldn't be expected to put up with this.

      Are you using ESP?Always found centre weighted better on the E1(and all my other E system cameras).

      Hope this helps.

        Yes I'm doing that - based on your advice elsewhere I think

          I think in general mine is underexposing by 1 stop ...to ensure the highlights are not clipped...must experiment a bit...I am using ESP and finding little real difference from centre weighted
