I'm just wondering if anyone has similar experiences. For 99% of my shots, I've found that the Auto Exposure tool in Aperture is completely worthless. Most of my shots are correctly exposed at shot, but I process all because I shoot raw. The auto exposure almost always shoots the exposure slider almost to the maximum amount, completely blowing out the picture. Its worked properly (that is, the change it made improved the picture) maybe twice out of the last 5000 shots I've put through. Does anyone use the tool with success?
