    Overexposure in low EV scenes

    My girlfriend's D7100 started overexposing lower EV scenes by about 3 stops. I was stumped because higher EV scenes were properly exposed. In desperation I did a factory reset and the problem disappeared. Has anyone else experienced this?

    Maybe the shutter is not accurate when using longer exposures?
    Don't mind me... I'm out roaming around somewhere between Zone III and VII.


    Go forth and actuate!

    That was my first inclination but the problem cleared up when I did a factory (green buttons) reset

    Bracketing wasn’t turned ON, was it?

    I strongly suspect that the metering was set to "Spot". It does cause exactly this kind of behavior. And it does sometimes happen. It did happen to me after a shooting with flash when I had set it up to Spot to dis-engage the fill-in metering for flash, and forgot to set it back to Average.
    I'm beginning to see the LIGHT!
