Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens
From one picture to another my camera started taking dark pictures. There is not enough light on the pictures, so I guess it is broken somehow.
In order for the pop-up flash to even activate, the object I'm taking a picture of needs to be almost totally black.
So it seems that the camera thinks there is more light than there actually is...?
Hope somebody can help me :o)
- Louise Eriksen Hi Rob,
I think I might have posted this message in a wrong forum, I have a canon eos 300D.
1) My camera is about 3 years old
2) The entire picture is too dark
3) It is automatic mode
4) I'm not quite sure, I'll go check and post the result when I get to the Internet again
5) They are rechargable, one is 3 years old, and the other is probably 2 years old, but not an original brand
Hi Louise. I found you anyway!
Troubleshooting this could get complicated, so I want to try some basic stuff first and get that out of the way.
First: Let's check your camera settings, You may have accidentally set the exposure setting incorrectly. Have you tried resetting your camera back to factory default? The way to do it is in Setup Menu number 2. Scroll down to "Clear All Camera Settings". Then press the Set button. This will take your camera back to like it was when you took it out of the box.
Now try taking a picture, If you still have the same problem, let me know by commenting in this session and we'll move on to step #2.
