Nikon AW110 Overexposure

I don't know if this is only my camera or is there any other experience the same.

I just bought Nikon AW110 and set it on full auto with flash and it gave me inconsistently overexposure. Some times it's under exposure as well but often it's extremely overexposure. And this behavior is inconsistent. It happened indoors and semi-outdoors.

Tried to play with settings and still inconsistently gave me overexposure.

I have couple of Nikon pro DSLR and Lenses and I like it, so I thought Nikon would give beter pocket camera too, but I was wrong.

Anyone have same experience?

I have had mine only 2 days and tested it outdoors mostly since thats were I plan to use it mostly. But I did about 40 indoor test shots with flash since I saw this post and mine has hit exposure right every time. So no problems with mine.

Me too AW110 Overexposure

Filtering the forum for AW110 I came across this thread.

I just got a new AW110 for a week. Me too got the overexposure problem. In particular when using automatic easy mode with a previously setting on the face detection autofocus and the red eye flash mode. Often happening when multiple people were on the photo.

I suspect the camera chooses one of the wrong points for metering that leads to overexposure. And there are no options for metering mode. Another problem is the excessive mist of glare when slightly facing the light source commonly shown on a cheap pocket camera.

I will return mine for the overexposure problem.
