    help - my pictures are all too darkI got my eos 400D as a present (without the instruction manual) When printing my pictures I always have to ask the developers to lighten the pix - I can't seem to find the setting on the camera to do it before taking shots and the user manual has way too many pages - all in Greek. Any advice will be appreciated - please bear in mind that I'm not a pro and need quick and easy step by step help.

    Here. After an exhausting google search which consisted of typing "Canon 400D manual" the second choice was this:

    cut and paste or type the above into your web browser.
    What do you mean when you say you have to ask the developers to do something? Can't you connect the camera to your computer to view and print them?

My pictures are to dark


if you are doing flash photography you will have to limit the shots to a distance of 10-15 feet to get nicely lit pics. also try setting the exposure compensation to +2 to brighten up the pic. Also are you shooting on manual ???

Hello
When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

Pictures are to dark


In order to adjust the ISO; please go into the Menu (Capture+ tab) and set the ISO for 64, 100 or 200 in order to reduce the darkness. However this will lead to slower shutter speeds in low light.

Also try different SCN and ISO to see if problem still persists.
If the problem is intermitted, try to find a pattern in to when the faulty pictures appear.

Pictures to dark at night


no there isn,t.but these cameras do not have enough flash to take great pictures at night,for one you cant be to far away,two you have to have a subject in range of the flash,other wise all you get is darkness.but at the most 10ft is the farthest you can go and still get a great shot at dark.also use auto mode when taking pictures,because it adjusts to light-dark etc.i know this because i have the same camera and its awesome,plus im a photo technician and ran a photo lab for 3years selling digital cameras. good luck,hope i helped
