    Exposure differences between camera

    I am shooting side by side, same lens, low light, ISO 6400, shutter 1/640, f/4 but get different results between my d810 and D610. The D610 is noticeably darker and underexposed. All settings are manual, WB is the same, etc. Any ideas?

    Maybe the D810 sensor has a bigger dynamic range. This could maybe explain this situation.

    My guess would be what Marcel said. It would be interesting to see them posted side by side.

    How are you quantifying this?
    Your post will be clearer if you describe how you are able to observe a variation between the two cameras.

    The image on the D610 is darker than the D810, as I mentioned before. Not sure how to quantify it much more than that. I’d say it’s 1-2 stops darker if that helps.

    Everything I read about sensor size says the size should have no effect on the amount of light being seen.

    If you are only comparing Camera LCD displayed image to Camera LCD displayed image maybe all you need is to brighten one LCD screen.
    Bring both images into an editing program on a _calibrated_ monitor, side by side, to truely compare.

    Have a look at the histograms from both cameras. As Chucktin wrote, the LCD calibration could be different from one camera to the other.
