We always leave it on automatic & have had excellent pictures , no matter what the light or how we move camera.
Suddenly, 1/2 of the 120 pics we took were too dark.
I reset the camera to default in case we had reset any settings without meaning to.
I believe the shots that didn't come out my wife was holding the camera with her fingers over the light sensor. Camera thought it was midnight & we got black photos.
NOW, which part senses the light ? when its on automatic.

Re: Pictures nearly black (overexposed )
Hi! It's weird that 1/2 of your photos were too dark. You didn't mention about the flash. Eventhough it is on auto mode, at night you still need to turn on the flash manually. Normally, it is a curve arrow pointing downward, you need to point your mode selector there. What brand of camera are you using though?

Have you tried to put the exposure mode to "manual"? If you leave it in automatic exposure mode, the iso, speed and aperture will always combine themselves to give the correct exposure and therefore will not let you overexpose your video. Hope this will help.
I'm assuming you are experiencing overexposed pictures which are lighter than they used to be. You could check your ISO setting to be sure it isn't too high for the amount of light in the scene. Also, if the pictures continue to be too light, you can always lower the setting in "exposure compensation" to darken the pictures.
usually all the digital cameras have a filter to diminishes the quantity of light passed through objective. This filter is enabled by a small relay and that relay is powered by a mobile wire from the mother board.Because this wire are always moved every time when the zoom is used ,this action can cause the interruption of that wire. The second possibility is that relay to get stuck and can`t be able to switch the filter.
It's possible that the settings of your camera may have been altered. I've checked the troubleshooting guide for your camera and the I think the exposure compensation may have been accidentally changed.
Try to change the value for exposure and see if that's the problem.
Most cameras have an EV or a +/- exposure setting. Go into the menu and check for EV compensation, or a " +/- " button. Set it to overexpose " + " one stop at a time til you get what you want. Please leave feedback if this helps.
Hey - have the same problem. All my still pictures are coming out overexposed, no matter what setting I use. Tried resetting, tried new battery, tried new memory card, tried different exposure settings. Nothing fixed it or affected it. However, my movie exposure works great so I can take movies just fine. Are you able to take movies with no overexposure?
i have the same exact problem with mine. it's two and a half years old as well. i also noticed that if you try taking pictures in any of the best shot modes the pictures come out looking like paintings.
