d800 exposure for wedding photogs
Apr 17, 2012

I have shot two weddings now with mine.

The d800 seems to expose about 1/3 stop over the d700 by default. I fine tuned my exposure to under by 1/3 of a stop for this second wedding and had much better results. The only difference really was that during the ceremony I didn't' blow highlights out this time. I had never had matrix metering do that that I could remember but I lost some information the weekend before I didn't really want to lose. just trying to give someone the heads up.
