Read the histogram, not the image on the LCD. In addition to errors because of screen brightness vs ambient brightness, the image on your screen is corrected by your camera before showing it on the screen. Most cameras allow you to adjust that, to remove saturation/sharpening adjustments, but you're still trying to judge your raw image based on an "edited" ...

Histogram is the best way to judge. How are you shooting? If you're shooting in JPEG, you should check your camera settings to see if you have the brightness turned up or contrast down or something strange like that. Assuming you're shooting in raw and opening the files in something like lightroom, then you're probably actually overexposing. Because ...

This is a function of the sequential writing of images to the memory card. The camera can't write one image after the other while also generating previews and displaying them. It is not controlled by a setting. You could probably do it with tethering (connecting the camera to a computer as you shoot) but that is very situation dependent.

Depending on what camera you use, under exposure may not be a problem at all. Typically most modern serious sensors give you a lot of leeway in downward latitude. You can always readjust your exposure in lightroom if you shoot raw. I have successfully pushed the raws from my camera by 3 stops (although I don't recommend that!). But digital sensors are ...

I haven't heard of this particular problem for this model, but it's a common-enough issue that LCD screens don't give accurate results. I wouldn't worry about it too much — use the histogram and other tools (like Highlight Alert) to judge exposure. If you want to use in-camera JPEG processing, you'll soon become familiar with how saturation, contrast, and ...

You may have a buildup of moisture inside your camera causing the screen to short out. you could try packing your camera with a desiccant like silica gel packs (those little "do not eat" packs you find in shoes), some people have had success with instant rice in a pinch (do not bury your camera in rice). this will help absorb any moisture and may correct ...
