Question about Nikon Coolpix S1 Digital Camera
There are several possibilities.
1) The camera store screwed up, and your photos are just fine. Have you looked at the photo files on your computer?
2) You accidentally set the camera into manual mode and with settings that don't work for the light. How do the photos look when you preview them on the camera?
3) This is the most likely problem: It sounds like you have accidentally set the "exposure compensation" value. This setting is used to help correct the exposure when shooting a scene that should be mostly white (e.g. in the snow, or bright sand at the beach) because otherwise the camera will make the scene be "medium gray". Check your user manual for instructions on how to set the exposure compensation and make sure it is set to 0.
If your photos are too dark when viewed on the computer and the preview screen, and EV is set to 0, then your camera may have a faulty light meter. If so, you need to send it in for repair under the warranty, or return it to the place of purchase as defective and see if they will exchange it for you.
