    I find that my D70 consistently exposes about 1-stop below my preferred
    exposure.
    Is there any way I can make it over-expose by 1-stop as a default setting?
    Thanks.

    I have the same issue with my Canon 20D. I almost always have the
    exposure compensation set to +2/3 or +1 (sometimes, even +2), depending
    on the lighting conditions. That's because I shoot RAW, though, as RAW
    has about a stop more headroom. I wish there was a way to set a global
    EC that takes effect when the usual control is set to 0. The camera is
    designed around shooting JPEGs, and the RAW shooter is left in the dark.

  3. In D70 you have spot metering. Why not use it instead of relying on camera
    automatics?
