Question about Canon EOS Rebel Ti / 300V 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Cannon XTi My pictures turn out dark, even outside... sometimes they are ok but most of them are so dark I have to edit them and adjust the lighting and they are still too dark. Is there a setting on the camera to fix this? I have been taking pictures on other cameras for 40yrs and this is giving me grief as I paid alot for this camera.

Try the camera in the full Auto mode to see if it is working correctly. Also check to see that there is no compensation set in the exposure settings for both apature and speed.

Check in the instruction manual to see how to get in to these settings from the user menus.

If this does not work, the camera will need to be serviced for a fault condition.

The problem is that u know the sony hdv xr500x when u put it on the picture is very dark we have tried it under light too put but the picture is still dark


Hello
When you look at your pictures are they dark, murky and hard to see? If you took pictures at a wedding, dance recital, theater performance or any indoor event and they came out dark, read on to learn why your pictures are dark, and how to fix this common camera problem.

Many people take pictures of indoor events, only to be unsatisfied with the final outcome of their photos. Although you may have bought the top of the line film or digital camera, there are a few limitations that you need to know about.
To correctly expose your pictures, you camera needs a lot of light. The compact point and shoot varieties adjust for this when you're outside during the daytime, and usually your pictures turn out fine, right? Well, then how come when you take indoor pictures, they sometimes come out too dark? There are two culprits; your zoom function and your flash.
Most compact cameras today offer a zoom function. When I used to work in retail photography sales, the first feature that consumers would ask for is zoom. People love to get close-up pictures without using their feet. Although zoom does bring your subject matter in closer, it also decreases the amount of light that can get into your camera. Essentially, the more you zoom, the less light your camera can receive, and your pictures will be darker.
So, if your taking pictures indoors, in a dark church, gym or other window-less room it is very difficult for your camera to get enough light to properly expose your pictures.
This is when most photographers decide to turn on their flash. The flash on your camera is a great tool to illuminate dark situations that are in close proximity to the camera. Most built-in flash units are designed to allow the light to travel 8-10 feet away in poor quality light and up to 15-20 feet in brighter situations.
What most camera users fail to realize is that although your zoom function is visually bringing you closer to the action, you flash cannot reach that far to illuminate the subject, and your pictures will be dark.
Hope it helps, if so do rate the solution

PICTURES TURN OUT TOO DARK IN AUTO MODE


adjust exposure compensation until they look correct. if you can't that means you don't have enough light, a fast enough lens, or need a better camera with more sensitivity. look at a nikon D3 it is the fastest camera there is.

Very blurry pictures on a Cannon Xti 400D


If u had took photo in very low light, pictures will appear blur. Or if you use tele zoom, u need to use tripod to stablize. In normal conditions, you can turn on image stablizer.

Dark pictures using flash


You could try increasing the exposure level (press AV+/- while rotating the selector wheel to the right) but this will increase the time the shutter is open and increase the possibility of picture blur. Only other thing to do when shooting indoors is to change to a high ISO - 1600 for instance. This reduces the time the shutter is open so working together with the first suggestion you may not notice any difference!

If still too dark, you need a faster lens - you can pickup a 50mm f/1.8 lens quite cheap - this is an excellent indoor lens as the low F number means it lets in lots of light. The fixed focal length means you will have to move around to frame the shot, but they are indispensible for indoor work and a lot cheaper than a f2.8 zoom.

Cannon G6 - Picture shows as portrait not landscape


Sounds like an oversensitive autorotate sensor. Recommend holding the camera very steady when taking a picture. If it still acts up, recommend just turning the sensor off, as you can use just about any photo editing software to rotate your photos if desired.

Press the Menu button, find and select the "Setup" menu, go down the list to find the "Autorotate" selection to turn it on/off.

Black pictures


Check your settings - could be if very black night, and you set it to 100 iso film speed, and maybe you are on say 1/1000 of sec at maybe f16, then that's ok. You would maybe need an explosion in an oil refinery to capture much.

However, you perhaps could try this:

1 change the battery for fresh one, and see if it helps - sometimes, the shutter won't really shut if battery power is very low

2. change the mode setting to auto, and see if the flash pops up and takes a pix - then if the pix is good, the camera is still working

3. Reset the camera to the factory defaults, by:

  • Firstly press the 'menu' button, then the up button above the 'OK' as many times as needed, until you see the top folders are highlighted.

  • Press the right button near the 'OK' until you see the last folder highlighted. You will know this is highlighted when you see the first menu option that says 'Language'. The 3rd one down from that says 'Clear Settings'.

  • Press the down button under the 'OK' until 'Clear Settings' is highlighted, then press the 'OK' button.

  • Scroll up to your choice and press 'OK' to reset your Canon 400D back to default factory settings.
If that fails, back to Canon! - good luck

Hi all
On most lenses the way to test if your old lens works on a cannon digital to set the camera to AV then set the iris to the small setting ie F16/F22 then use the stopdown button.
Things that might happen
1 The lens will close down OK
2 The error 99 will show,will need are rechip if avaliable
3 Nothing happens, will need a rechip

Q.Why will it work inside but not outside.
A. Inside the camera needs light so the iris is full open, outside the lens needs to close down and if not compatible it is unable to close down. will need a rechip
