Dark Photos (Even in Day Light)

Hi all!


So, I recently got the Hero2 and I have to say, it is FUN! Love shooting NYC with this little thing! Except...I find that a lot of the images are underexposed, even day light shots.

Now, I can understand low light situations, but in well lit areas? C'mon!?

What do I need to do to resolve this? Are there ISO setting that I've missed? Please help! I love this camera, but if it's not going to take properly exposed images, it's not worth having...


Thanks in advance.

Spot Metering?

Are you referring to Spot Metering? That should only be used if I'm in a dark place shooting at a lighter place...no? I'm shooting in well lit areas; Outside to be exact, and my shots are dark. At least 1 Stop underexposed. I don't think I should have to alter EVERY shot in post....It should shoot correct from the camera. To correct hundreds of photos, is a bit annoying!
