Slight underexposure on d800 - studio work manual mode
Jan 20, 2013

Hi there, simple question here,

I have just added a D800 to my collection of cameras and shot it for the first time in anger in the studio a couple of days ago.

I generally hand held meter my studio shots and have been shooting d3 / d300 for years in the studio.

the other day I set up a shot and metered it to F11.3 (I always find that that extra 3rd of a stop makes skin sing) set my d300 / d3 and d800 to 200 iso, 125th / F11 and started to take photos.

instantly I noticed that the D800 was slightly under exposing, again I am in manual mode, the histogram backed this up by just pulling in to the left a tiny bit on both the combined and red channels. The D3/D300 were perfect.  I had to shoot the D800 at F10 to prefect the image.

any ideas ?
