Too much clipping with 1DMark III
Aug 19, 2010

I purchased a used 1DMkIII a while back and still struggling to learn how to use it. One thing I'm finding is that I'm getting a lot of clipping in the highlights and shadows showing up on the histogram for shots that should be perfectly exposed. Even when the exposure level needle is dead center in the viewfinder, the histogram still indicates clipping. With my 5D, this never happens. Obviously, I'm doing something wrong. Is this a metering issue? An exposure issue? Don't get me wrong, I love the camera, I just wish I had an explanation of why this is happening. Would appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
