I'm using 30D and L358 and 580EX II

I took a picture exactly what the light meter said.
And the picture at the back of the camera looks good, no blinkies. (picture 1)
then I overexposed by 1/3, now there are blinkies. (picture 2)

I then import the picture to Lightroom.
picture 1 would look underexposed.
picture 2 would look good, with no overexposed highlights.

why is this happening? Is there some setting in the camera or Lightroom that is doing this?

Much has been written about the inaccuracies between camera histograms and raw histograms.

Here is a recent thread about exposing to the right - https://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthre​ad.php?t=513847 - which may be related to your question.

Also, the in camera preview and histogram are affected by your parameters (contrast, saturation, picture style, etc). LR can't 'read' those settings, so doesn't use them.
