Yes, I agree - Don't Expose to the Right!!!

Expose to the Center!!!

Lately I have started shooting with the exposure compensation set down to -0.7 at all times and then boost in Capture. For a normal image things are basically the same. For an image that might have otherwise had blown highlights the Capture exposure boost algorithm seems to do exactly what I want and preserves the highlight regions. A Win-win situation.

My montra: Never expose to the right unless you are already at base ISO (100).
