    Re: D7500 underexposed pictures on automatic settings (On every possible lens)

    Just curious, What metering mode was your camera in for the set of Auto mode shots you posted? Even in auto it shouldn't have blown out the sky like that.

    It was set at spot metering mode.
    I figured out that the there can be quite a fair bit of difference in cameras whilst still meeting the manufacturing quality standard requirements.
    This was the biggest issue I had to deal with. My camera was and still is in spec but must be bordering on the far end of the spectrum.
    I've got no problem with that now that I know it as I can apply compensation.
    However, the difference in metering between my D90 and D7500 are day and night different (No pun intended). This was extremely frustrating up to the point where I was going to get rid of the unit. Luckily you guys helped me out and I'm satisfied now.

    Spot metering was the issue. Matrix would have balanced better, sky would not have been blown out. In looking at the shutter speeds, the camera was exposing for a dark area which in turn blew out the sky. Normally with that much light the shutter speed would have been much faster.

    Your camera is fine, it actually did what it was supposed to in accordance with the spot metering setting. Meter properly first, make adjustments after viewing or in post processing. Start off with Maxtrix until you get a feel for the other exposure settings.

    Matrix metering is a good all around choice.
