D200 underexposure?
Dec 19, 2005

Although I've been an amateur photographer for years, I fell like a rank begineer trying to make the switch to digital. I have a question regarding my D200 that seems rather dumb, but anyway here goes...

Whenever I take photograph indoors the histogram is all on the left half side, with almost no information on the right if any. When I bring the image into CS2, I have to do a major levels adjustment as well.

Now I am very familiar with Nikon cameras and have owned an F100 for several years. I am confident that all of the settings are such that I have no exposure compensation on either camera or flash. ISO is set to 200. Am I missing something? I'm wondering if it is related to the use of flash indoors with small almost unnoticeable highlights that are biasing the exposure meter. I'd try taking some photos outdoors, but the rain isn't expected to stop until tomorrow.
