My exports from Capture One are too bright or too dark!

I'm having and issue while I shoot tethered with a Canon 5D Mark III. The image looks great in Capture 1 but when I export the file to JPG, the image looks too dark. And when I export the image to DNG, it's too bright. I'm not sure why this is happening. The colors look fine, it's just the exposure changes after export. Is there a setting I'm not following?

Isn't this what you would expect for the DNG? Isn't a DNG essentially the raw file saved in a different file format, so you'd expect to get what you started with rather than your nicely adjusted shot as shown in your screenshot. (That's certainly what happens for me.)

I don't know about the JPG. What colour space is used in the export recipe?

Edited to add: why do you want to export a DNG anyway?

Exporting to DNG won't preserve any of the corrections made to the RAW file within C1, it will just take the original file and convert it to the DNG format.
