So, I recently purchased a Canon 5D. I like it a lot, but I'm having an issue with it. Whenever on full-auto, P, AV, TV, or, C it over-exposes 1-2 stops. Now, I usually shoot on M because it’s the only way I can get a decent exposure. Now some have told me I should "just shoot on manual forever." I don't want to. I like putting it on AV when I don't have the time to mess with the shutter and aperture. Now, I'm sure you'll all thinking "Well, there's an easy solution for this problem, just compensate a stop or so on the camera." I thought the exact same thing, but therein lies another issue. Whenever I shoot, regardless of the mode I'm in, I can’t give an exposure bias at all. I'll give you a step-by-step just to be clear. - I shoot and I see the photo is over exposed by about 1-2 stops. - I swear and roll my eyes because something that costs so much should work well. -I press the exposure compensation button on the top of the camera. -I click the wheel so it under exposes a stop. -I press the exposure compensation button again to confirm it. -I shoot. -I repeat first and second steps. I would really like to know what's going on. It's really ****ing me off, that it's so screwy. I've heard that the 5D's have had some exposure problems, but I haven't specifically heard about someone having this problem like I do. Should I send it in to Canon? I haven't called them yet, I was hoping this issue would just go away, or was something easy to fix. Your input would be appreciated.
