Did you change the exposure compensation setting or the ISO setting? You could go into the menu and find "reset"...follow the on-screen instructions to return to factory default settings.

I have sd850 is digital camera , why when i take a picture at night even i use flash the picture comes out to dark . do i need to use the flash or not. i always put in automatic . if i don't want to use...


Go to your ISO settings and set it higher. take several pictures till you seee wnat works. the flash is only good for about 10 fet if it's truly dark. Turn it up all the way and if it's too bright turn it back till you find what you want. the lower the better untill it's too dark. Try pushing the pictures with your computer and as long as your not a witness for court cases pushing the pichures with your computer can give you some great pictures as long as the cameria got the picture OK to beginwith as the lower ISO settings will give you more to work with as the ISO goes up the quality goes down and as you push with the computer the quality goes down but if the orginanal has enogh ( Juice ) in it and you computer prgram is a good one then you can make good Processed pictures and you may be pushing the limits of the camera. Maybe next time shell out for a better camera that has more than 10 Megapixals and you'll start seeing into the dark, 20 megapixals really do well but how deep are your pockets? Pup a big flood light on the job and use the flash with the best batteries that you can find and maybe you can get what your looking for. I'm a pro but some low light pictures using a tripod and a remote shutter( to remove all shake) sometimes can get the camera to step up and get the best picture it can take. Take lots of pictures and use brade name chips as some of the noname chips can do a low light picture bad I've thrown away all the cheapie chips I had and I only use the Hi dollar ones, and I'm good to go.

My pictures come out dark even though the flash is operational, any advise or suggestions?


Turn the turnstile onto a setting like scenic. Then try to take a picture. If it is still dark you might need to get someone to check it out. Your exposure could be too low.

- Flash goes off but pictures dark (very)


You don't say what kind of pictures you're trying to take but, understand that the built-in flash is only effective for about 8 - 10 feet.

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

Flash works but timing is off


If your camera is set properly there seems to be bad connection between shutter and the flash and you will have to send it in. I would though look again at the way your camera is set up for flash fotography.

Dark pictures with flash


I had this problem before, sent it off to have it repaired 1 year ago, and now have it again. Just to make sure it's the same problem, here's a description: The flash seems to be out of sync with the shutter. Using the flash in medium or low light (in auto mode) makes the picture darker than not using a flash at all. It ruins the picture. In a completely dark room, even though the flash fires, the pictures comes out pitch black. The problem is the flash unit -- it needs to be replaced. If your camera is under warranty, Canon will replace it for free. (You pay only to ship it to them.) (You might try what they told me to try before I shipped it off, and that was to reset the camera by pushing and holding the menu button until it resets. Didn't do anything for mine, but who knows.) If it's not under warranty, Canon will offer to replace it with a refurbished newer model for a discounted price. That's my situation now, because the problem has come back. I did come across a posting that described how to replace the flash unit yourself -- it involves taking the camera apart, but looks doable. (Sorry, I don't have the link handy and I'm not sure if I can find it back.) The problem is, I don't know where to get the part. Canon has been no help on this. Anyone know where I can get a Canon flash unit for the A85? Hope this helps, and good luck.
