Over exposed photos


Your exposure compensation might not be set correctly. Just behind and to the right of the on/off switch you will see a small button with a "+/-" symbol. That is the exposure compensation switch. When you press it, you will see a number displayed on the LCD. If the number is positive, that is your problem. Positive numbers increase exposure and negative numbers decrease exposure. Set the compensation to 0.0 by turning the rear thumbwheel while depressing the exposure compensation button.

Incorrect exposure


It sounds like you've got exposure bracketing turned on. Hold down the Fn button and turn the main command dial to change the number of shots to 0.
Full details are in the "Bracketing" subsection of the "Exposure" section of the manual (page 130 in my copy). If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

My camera over exposes everything - the shutter stays open for about 2-3 seconds. except when on video settings. No matter what I set it at nothing changes.


Looking down at the top of the camera, check the left knob. This is the exposure compensation dial. Adjust it to "0". If set one way or the other, it will make pictures darker or lighter. This comes in handy when the image has a lot of dark or bright areas - moving this dial will allow you to make the bright areas darker or the dark areas lighter when you camera's light meter is setting the exposure in a way you do not want.

If still having trouble, make sure the right knob (Mode) is not set to M or Manual. Switch it to Program or Auto and try taking a picture again. You might even want to set the outer knob (ISO) to AUTO as well to reduce the chances of an incorrect setting. If it now works as expected, but you want to shoot in M, you will need to learn how to use the meter to select the correct combination of aperture (f stop), shutter speed and ISO to obtain the desired results.

Oh, experiment with the exposure compensation knob when you have a chance, learn how it can help correct overly dark / bright scenes. Good luck!

All of a sudden the images my camera is taking look totally overexposed, is it possible that i switched some setting without knowing? why is there so much light in my pictures?


Yes, there is a setting called exposure compensation, which you may have altered.
Try switching the camera back to A (Auto) mode, and see if that fixes it.
In the manual setting modes, exposure compensation will look like this:

Make sure that you haven't set the exposure compensation to +2, for example. It should usually be set on 0.

To change the "exposure compensation" it's saying


When you change the exposure compensation setting, the camera will change the aperture, the shutter speed, or the ISO depending on the mode you're in and the shooting situation. That's what "compensation" means.

400D manual mode


You are exposure compensation in manual mode. If you want the shots lighter, either open up the aperture or slow the shutter. The exposure compensation feature is to override the automatic settings determined by the camera in the auto-exposure modes.

D70s problem


Check the exposure compensation setting to ensure it's set for +/-0. To do this, set the camera for Program mode. Locate the exposure compensation mode button - it's the button with a +/- on it immediately behind the on/off switch. With the camera on, hold down this button. If it shows anything other than "0", use the main command dial (the wheel on the back) to change to setting to 0.

The reason the camera works in the Auto mode is because the exposure compensation settings are not available in auto mode, but are available in Program (P), Aperature (A) and Shutter (S) modes.

Photes are very over exposed, Fiji f700


Check your exposure compensation adjustment. If that is set high, then all your shots will be over-exposed until it is brought down to the "0" setting. A relative had this problem with a different camera, and all it took was resetting the exposure compensation to make things work correctly.

I often set cameras with a default exposure compensation of -0.3 EV since blown highlights are so distracting.

Exposure compensation problems


The exposure compensation stays where you leave it unless you do a full reset or a custom reset, and except when you're using scene modes. But you don't need to do a reset to cancel out an exposure compensation -- simply use the exposure compensation button to adjust the compensation back to 0.0EV.
