You might also want to use the ND (neutral density) filter as outlined on p.47 of the owners manual. this filter is especially intended for use in bright sunlit conditions. it is a standard feature on broadcast quality cameras also.

On the left hand side of the camera is a wheel and button located right before the LCD screen and after the focus selctor. If you roll the wheel to the + you will open the iris - close the iris.. there is also a button that says 'iris' above it, what that does is auto pinpoints the light setting for you..

you could also play with the shutter speed and gain located in the back of the camera next to the battery if you have extremely dark situations or even extremely light.

Outdoor pics completely washed out Cannon S5 IS Power shot


Try going into the review menu, choose setup and then choose 'reset all' This should re-set all shooting settings to automatic and solve the problem. If that doesn't do the trick, your sensor is probably damaged - not good news - sorry

CANON Rebel RTI Outdoor pictures are dark


learning to use light metering correctly can have its challenge.
the manual will guide you on how to set up to read light from the subject. spot metering a dark area will cause general overexposure, or a washed out look. spot metering a bright area will cause a dark image. if you are on spot meter and shoot two people standing together against a bright lit background, your meter will see between them if they are centered, and read all that bright background, setting the camera to a less sensitive combination of aperture / shutter speed, resulting in a dark image. use field averaging meter setting and be sure you are metering the subject and not the background. try shooting a wall that is fairly clear of other colors and uniform it light hitting it, you should have a correctly exposed image. since it works in other modes (at least 1, anyway) then it is unlikely you have an exposure compensation issue. that is the only other non defect issue that would cause your problem.
once you confirm that you have these settings correct and still get a dark image, its time to have it serviced.
good luck

Pictures are too bright when shooting outdoors in sunlight


Have you tried changing your settings manually to outdoor? Or adjusted the aperture? You can usually find the aperture settings under the menu button. If not, try adjusting to outdoor conditions and disabling flash. And also, lower your white balance a good bit.
