T2i exposure

I have noticed that when you center up the suggested exposure settings while shooting video the footage comes out a little on the over exposed side. 24-70 2.8 lens. I will try in the future to set it a half stop under exposed and that should do it. Anyone else seeing similar results?
Thanks, Craig

Yep. I treat it like slide film. Under-expose half a stop in normal conditions, full stop in bright, on the nose in darker conditions.

I tend to under expose a little too. you can set the exp compensation in movie mode to -1/2 stop or -2/3 stop. I think the normal camera exposure is hot as well
