Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Message- Bulb. While shooting in manual setting in dark the message bulb comes on. What does that mean? It's random. Sometimes it's on sometimes not. Same location, same light. Errrrrrr.

    Thanks, I did some more poking around and I think I'm going to have to use a remote and hold the shutter open longer. It just didn't make sense that it would take a photo with the settings that I had used and then the next second not. No settings or location had changed, I had just zoomed in or out a bit.

Does this also happen when you switch the camera to automatic?
Sometimes without knowing you can put the camera in manual, and have ictures much to light or much to dark. If you are not familiar with manual shooting, please put the camera back to auto (green camera loge on the dial)

My photos are coming out dark on my Nikon D5100...should I be using an additional flash? An extra one attached to the camera? Sometimes they look dark on the live view and come out okay after the picture...


The build in flash, will be useful within several meters (15 to 20 feet) if it is really dark.
Your camera should be capable of taking pictures in poor light conditions. Try to shoot in automatic mode. The mode dail to AUTO. (green camera symbol). Then view the picture with info. There you can see the ISO, Aperture and shutter time. From there you can experiment for darker or lighter pictures. For this you can choose M, A,S or P.
In each of these modes, you can use the following steps.
On top of the camera, close to the shutter release button you see a little knob with a +/- sign. If you press that button, you should see a 0.
If you see a - figure, this means the picture you shoot all be darker than normal. If you see a + sign with a figure it means the picture will be brighter. While pressing that button and turning the command dail, you can choose -3 to +3 EV. That is much darker and much brighter.
If you shoot many pictures in bad light conditions, you could buy an external flash. A Nikon flash will work very good and automatic, with your camera, because camera and flash will communicate and help each other to make better pictures. Cheaper external flashes can work too, but most of the time you must change settings manual on the flash. Never use old flashes, that were build for analog cameras. They sometimes switch with a voltage higher than your camera can handle. The camera can be damaged by such a flash.

Sometimes pictures are dark even in auto mode, err message is always coming, dark image in the view finder.


Hi dear pmorala
1) check
the lens if to drive the diaphragm actuating lever that opens.
2) also check the aperture lever on the camera body may be broken or bent.
3) look at the Shutter release the mirror and shoot the camera in a low speed (M mode) note if this works correctly or some of the leaves that make up the curtain is loose or out of place.


Everything seems fine ... OK command dial to select the full aperture, shoots the camera at you and see the diaphragm (set M mode and speed sh bellow 1 / 8). Full closed? = Aperture Mechanism defective.

Regards

When watching television or movies it will randomly go dark and in the bottom left corner it will read "component setting up image." after about 5 seconds it returns to normal. This happens randomly....


the most inexpensive thing to do is to replace the cables, also make sure no pins are bent where the cables plug into the projector. it that doesn't fix it try refashing the software. if that don't work it 's most likely the main board.

I am having problems with the pictures turning out to be very dark and in two out of three photos. I am sure it is in settings but do not know how to overcome problem. PLEASE ADVISE


If you can shoot on Manual that's what I would do. sometimes Program Setting does not read the light correctly. Can you tell me what setting you are shooting at, and what ISO...maybe then I can help you.

Built-in flash not flashing as expected


I'm not sure if the problem is the flash or settings on your EOS, from what your saying.

Lets try to change the settings first.
Try to change the settings of your camera, look in your manual. What your looking for is ISO, this is the exposure. By taking practice shots and changing ISO you will find a setting that will match your preference.

Also, it seems like your flash is faulty. Contact Canon to fix it for you.

If you have the money, try to fix your flash. Otherwise set your ISO to auto or change it every time you take a picture outside or inside.

When pressing the shudder release, it won't take and it gives an r11 error


What is the camera set to that makes you think this is not just normal behavior?  Since r11 is a normal indication, meaning your buffer is empty and you have 11 shots to take before you fill it, my guess is that you just are setting the camera so that the shot is terribly under-exposed.  
What do the histograms look like?  Are they exactly a single line or two all the way to the left or is it just bunched over to the left.
