Neither ETTR nor exposure to highlights gives you a correct exposure out of camera, in general.

Please define, correct exposure, in one or two sentences.

The one that matches the real scene when viewed on a calibrated monitor.

For those of us who don't bring calibrated monitors into the field, how would you recommend we determine correct exposure?
