Re: D80 Overexposure

I agree. I found that based on whether a soccer team wears white jerseys versus dark jerseys, my D80 would constantly overexpose the white jersey highlights. I tried the -0.7 trick and matrix metering, but didn't really like the results. As you know, players roam all over the soccer field, so I really don't have the time to continually check for over exposed highlights. For the last two games, I've used center-weighted metering, and the results worked out quite well.
