Default D100 and Sekonic 358 question, help

please help me with this question, i am confused. I am outdoor, and metered the subject with a light meter. -- > 1/160, f/8 and put the D100 on manual with the setting. after i take the picture. the photo is under exposed. I know D100 tend to under expose the photo ~ 0.3 or 0.7 stop. But i thought that's only with the D100 metering system. If i bypass the D100 metering system. I should get the proper exposure.

I am using the light meter an incident meter.
is it a problem with my light meter, i am using a Sekonic 358. I didn't find anything wrong with the light meter. do i have calibrate it after i got it? if yes, how do i do it.


thanks

I don't know your equipment, but in general it depends on what the camera is metering on (especially if you're using spot metering)...here's a great page I found showing where your camera is reading the light from can influence the picture:
