White balance issues on canon rebel xs

I have a canon rebel xs. when i take pictures outside the camera overexposes the pictures. it's a total white out. i'm using the automatic settings. why is this happening? it's most noticeable when the sun is bright or i'm at the beach with all the white sand. is this a quirk with this camera. we've had problems with the white balance since we bought it. my husband can make changes to the white balance when he uses manual mode, but most times i prefer the automatic mode.

hi there,

the common difference between canon and nikon is the color they produce. you can try to change the White Balance setting on your Canon to the suitable mode e.g cloudy, tungsten, daylight, etc.
if you still feel that the picture is dull, don`t be shy to use graphic software such as Adobe Photoshop, Picasa, etc. to enchance the color/brightness/contrast of your picture

hope this will help

Today my rebel xs was overexposing outside pics in auto mod. To get some kind of shot I have to go to manual with shutter at 1/4000, aperture 36, iso400 and still am getting heavy overexposure. Why?


The Rebel XS has an exposure compensation of + or - 2 EV in 1/3 or 1/2 stop increments. I suspect that this setting has been altered resulting in over exposures. It will not matter where you set your camera in manual operation it will still yield an overexposure.

Make sure the white balance is set to "auto." Try going outside into shade and taking a picture of a white piece of paper, and see if that has a color cast.

If it does, follow the instructions in your camera's manual to set up a "custom white balance," and see if that helps. If the camera is newish, Canon might fix it under warranty, too.

Canon rebel XS error 99


Instead of taking out the battery, just open and close the battery compartment to reset the camera.

SVRGuy02 is right, set the slep time longer to avoid the issue so much and just open and close the battery compartment before beginning each shooting exercise
