Re: Over exposure

On the A55 there should be a scale on the lower right with a -2 on the left side, 0 in the Middle, and +2 on the right side. This is your EV (exposure value) reading. If it's on the ( - ) side it's underexposed, on the ( + ) side overexposed, and if it's on the 0 it's properly exposed. However this is based on the metering mode you have selected. So if you have spot metering selected you would get something different if you switched to multi segment metering. However you still have to use your eyes to see what's going on in the scene. If you don't see a difference in the evf or lcd, you might have setting effects turned off.

However there are a variety of circumstances in which you may still get an overexposed or unexposed image. You may still need to make adjustments to your metering or exposure compensation.
Good luck and happy shooting!
