Can anyone share how you get proper exposure? It seems my meter doesn't work on the camera when the muse is attached.

I have a composer and a D90, but the problem is the same. You have to use FULL manual (M) and experiment. Use common sense. If you're in broad daylight and have an ISO of 1 EV under 2oo, you should probably be using (depending on your aperture)1/400 second and then look at your screen, is it too bright? (over-exposed) shorten the exposure to 1/1000 or change the aperture to a smaller aperture. Is it too dark? Do the opposite. Use the up arrow on the 4 direction control while reviewing your image, you will see a little chart and the exposure. You are looking for a nice bellcurve in most photos, unless you're in the snow, then the majority of it will be to the right, if you're shooting a dark subject, it should be to the left. The best thing to do is to take it out and shoot with it for an hour, all the while examining each shot, correlating it with what you are shooting. If you prefer, shoot around the house, take it back to your computer every few minutes to see what is working and what is not. DON'T BE AFRAID to try it! EXPERIEMNT!!!!
