Question about Contax 167 MT 35mm SLR Camera
Normally the problem is simply that the pictures are slightly overexposed. Despite all the fancy names manufacturers stick on their metering systems, the camera doesn't know what you're taking a picture of. They basically strive to make the entire scene a medium gray. As a result, some highlights may be blown out, just as some shadows may drop out. Generally, dropped shadows are more acceptable than blown highlights.
If a picture is really important, bracket. Take one shot at the metered exposure, then another a stop under (and perhaps one a stop over, if you're feeling paranoid). It was common for a National Geographic photographer to spend an entire roll on one shot, trying different light angles and exposures. After all, film is far cheaper than air fare and hotel rooms.
One advantage of shooting digital is that you can see the results immediately, and correct for blown out highlights.
