How does the camera tell you if you are over exposed? I have a A55.

Just think of -2 to +2 range with -2 being almost black and +2 - almost pure white.

Everything that falls out of this range will be totally underexposed black or pure white - overexposed to no recovery point.

There are tricky situations like weddings where men-in-black are next to bride in pure white dresses. without DRO or HDR you may fail capturing bordering detail.

If your camera shows histogram - learn how to use it.

Person is taking photos, not camera. When photograph is bad, it's because photographer doesn't know how to choose settings optimal to "own preferences". Then blames camera for bad IQ.
This is same as blaming car about arriving to wrong destination.
