sony ax2000 manual control problem
I have a Sony AX2000 digital camera and it is driving me nuts! When I try to take footage of an object in front of a bright backdrop (say like a talking head with a bright sky behind) I try to blow out the back drop to properly expose the subject. Even though I do this in complete manual settings, the camera will always resists the over exposure of the back drop and compensates to the overall lighting, thus underexposing the main subject. I have sent the camera back to SONY and all they say is that everything checks out??? I can by a $500 camera that will allow total manual control why will this camera not?? Is there something wrong with the camera?? Am I missing something in the settings? Please, can anyone help me solve this?
