I would read up on the metering options of your camera.
Hi, not sure how to post this and couldn't find anything related.
I need help, hopefully, figuring out what is going on with my new D5100.
My D40 with a 55-300mm Nikor lens has been taking seemingly good photos for years with this lenses. I bought a new D5100 and the photos look considerably darker and color seems off.
I do not use any custom settings and just use auto settings on both. The ISO is the same when looking at the photos on the computer.
This is really a huge bummer as I use this lens the most and now seems unusable on the new camera. Does anyone have any idea why the D40 would look good and the D5100 wouldn't with the same lens and settings?
