That's too bad...

EDIT: I took my camera to a campus event tonight (swimming competition held by one of our sororities) and I set my camera to use auto ISO. However, I was noticing that most of my pictures were seriously underexposed. Does anybody else who shoots Nikon notice underexposure with auto ISO? I didn't have any EV set, and pictures I took without auto ISO exposed just fine...

I need a fast telephoto so I don't need to be shooting at ISO 1600+ to get at least 1/60 s.

When I use auto ISO, its usually on manual (ISO shift manual <3) and it does seem to underexpose more than manually putting it in. Don't know why, but most shots work out fine.

I didn't notice that, but auto ISO always set it too high for my liking. Instead i binded the function button to ISO.

Yeah, I've got ISO bound to the Fn button on my camera as well, but sometimes I just can't change it fast enough.

Old school,

When I rest my 400 VR and 600 VR on a bean bag, they interfere with and sometimes move the focus ring. That's why I can't use bean bags with the big guns.

Better to underexpose and get a bit of noise, than to overexpose and get blur.

I agree. Personally I couldn't care less about noise (within reason). Even at ISO 3200 the D5000 isn't horrible. However, the Hi modes definitely look a bit yitzy in darker areas...

How's your metering set?? Matrix, spot, cw??
i.e. if you're spot metering on something bright, iso will bump down and you'll be u.e.

If you need a fast telephoto, buy one. There's lots of good ones out there.
