Reviving a really old thread here.

1. I use a Canon S2 (5 MP+12X) and I've noticed that most of my photographs in the P mode using AWB and Evaluative metering are over exposed a tad. All the histograms of the shots (which I've just checked recently) have some blank area to the left. I am assuming that it means it is not capturing all dark areas as it should, right?

I am sure that I've not set the exposure correction at all. What could be wrong?

2. Using a prosumer camera, what are the things to note while shooting b&w portraits. Should I underexpose to compensate for the camera processing?

Any advice on how to avoid the reflection of stuff on the dashboard in the picture when capturing images through the windshield from inside the car?

Use a polarizer, that will kill most of the reflections on glass.
