d60 auto wb & exposure setings frequently off
Jul 14, 2002

With a d60 and 16-35L, in straight forward landscape shots in sunlight, I have been finding that in many (more than 50%) instances:

1. in landscape mode, the exposures are underexposed by 1/2 to 1 fstop;

2. in landscape mode, the default auto white balance yields shots need correction to get true colors;

3. in program mode and with wb set to daylight, color fidelity is much better;

4. my lowly ixus v yields much truer results of the same shot (compared with landscape mode on the d60) - wb and exposure settings are more accurate ( although not perfect).

I am contemplating returning the d60 to Ritz or sending it to Canon for repair.

Any comments/suggestions would be most appreciated.
