Re: D200 how to avoid over-exposure ?

The highlight indicator is inaccurate if WB is off, which is why it's crucial to nailing WB. Generally I've found that if it's blown out on the LCD then it'll be blown out when I process the NEFs. And regardless of what the indicators say in Capture, blown highlight detail won't come back. It'll pull the tones down for highlight recovery, but the detail is gone.

If it's an issue of too much dynamic range to capture in your scene, then bracket.
