Decrease shutter speed, increase aperture size (lower F-stop), and/or increase ISO.

How do I lighten the pictures?


Check your camera settings:

White balance should be set to auto,
ISO should be set to auto,
flash should be set to auto,
scene should be set to auto,
Exposure Compensation should be set at 0.

If images are still too dark change ISO setting to 200. If that doesn't work change to 400. If that still doesn't work change exposure compensation to +1. If your photos are still too dark your camera is defective.

When i take pictures inside with my Canon eos Rebel xsi the pictures are very dark and I have tried all settings is it the camera or the lens?


Clear the custom functions and clear the camera settings in the main menu set the camera to P mode to get there! If you want to know if it is the lens. Put the camera in P mode and set the iso to 1600 and press the button on the bottom left side of the camera and listen to the lens diaphragm you should hear it moving, point the camera somewhere dark. Or set the camera to AV mode put the iso to 100 and turn the dial behind the shutter release switch all the way to the right and take a pic pointed towards a light source if the camera goes error 99 then it is the lens diaphragm! When I test a camera I set it to P mode and the iso to 400 and use the center focusing light and take four pics, one with the flash and one without close up and two as far away as possible one with the flash and one without and then compare the pics! Are you using the 18-55 mm is lens that came with the camera or a different one!

My pictures are dark even with the flash


The ISO (sensitivity) is set too low, like 200 ISO.
Change the ISO setting to 3200, or maximum just to see if pix become very light.

Normally, you might want to keep it around 800 ISO.

I would just like to find out how to set aperture when shooting in manual mode


The REBEL is Either aperture or shutter priority.

You can set this up via the menu

There is a rule of thumb and it also depends on the ISO ( ASA or film speed) iF IN LOW LIGHT USE A HIGHER ISO say 200-1000

and an aperture set from ap ring on lens a good all round setting is F8

the rule for Apertures is smaller the number larger the aperture ( lets more light in, but in high iso settings you really dont need to change this unless its really dark,

Larger the number smaller the aperture used for very bright light conditions, where over exposure is likely to occur ( even in flash )

Flash automatically uses F8 but this is not always ideal as when shooting in some lights at a white object ( wedding) the pic will be overexposed , sometimes its better to use F11 with a flash and an ISO of 100. Perhaps you need to get an easy photo guide book Digital Photogreaphy for Dummies ( no insult intended) It has a lot of these little tips in it and will improve your pics beyond "Happy Snaps"

Changing the exposure is to use the aperture ring on the lense most are from F2-F22 depending on the focal length of the lens say 50 mm 150mm - 200mm for each size lens one would increase the F stop by 1 or add and EV point (+01) to compensate for the length.

Hope that is helpful for you

Put in new alkaline batteries to test the flash. Don't use rechargeables or "heavy duty" for this test.

Pictures come out dark when we take at night or in a dark area...even when flash on


It might depend on what distance you expect the flash to travel in order to light the subject. How many times havbe you benn to outdoor cocerts and seen flashes going off Many of those pics are goin to be dark because the flash is unlikely to reach that distance to be effective and the only light available to the sensor is the ambient light.

You need to observe what settings the camera reports like F numbers and speed numbers 1/30 1/60 at 1/60 and below the flash is activated and the aperture might be F16 the rule of thumb is higher the number smaller the hole, which with flash this setting would be ok

if it goes to F4 5 or even 8 it may be too restictive and cause under exposure.
The ISO setting is also helpful to understand here to The ISO is like the old film speed number ASA 100 daylight film ASA 400 is more sensitive to low light so change your ISO (ASA) setting to a higher number and see if that helps you take a better picture

I take pictures inside a car of people and sometimes the pic come in good and sometime not what is the best setting iso


Hi there, and thanks for coming to FixYa.

The ISO setting determines how sensitive your camera's image sensor is to light.
General rule of thumb...the lighter your surroundings are - the lower your ISO. So, depending on how bright the light is outside your car when you take the picture, use this:
If it's overcast 600 to 800 ISO.
If it's really sunny then us 200 to 400 ISO
If it's dark out then only use 1600 ISO

You should experiment with these ISO settings, you may have to notch it up or down depending on the light outside.

Sony DSC W50 Camera - Trouble with Flash


Hi, I guess you are using the automatic mode ( not the "P" mode).
You should enable flash only when there is insuffient light. If you use flash in broad day light, your pic will be whited out. If you dont use flash in dark or low light, your pic will be dark or very dark.
So, when it comes of dark, try enabling the flash. If its still dark, increase the flash compensation (the eV value). If its still dark, increase the ISO number.
Hope these help.
cheers,
