C-5060 exposure surprise

    Hi,

    I have compared my Olympus C-5060 digicam exposure reading with
    (1) Sekonic handheld meter
    (2) another 35 mm camera
    (3) a colleague's Canon digital camera

    To my surprise, my C-5060's exposure reading is consistantly +1 stop
    overexposure. On the other hand, if I go with the in-camera reading, the
    image actually looks very close to the reality. Maybe my digicam's ISO
    rating is off or something.

    Does any other C-5060 owner have the same experience?

    thanks

    Your mileage may vary... e.g. F8 ain't always f8.
