Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

3 Answers

Overexposure problem I am using a Canon Rebel and have it set for RAW, 100ISO, and am deliberately Underexposing by 1 stop, but I am still getting Overexposed images. The histogram is weighted to the left. I am using it on P (program), Av (Aperture priority) and Manual modes. I am new to digtal and may be overlooking something obvious - can anyone help point out my or the camera's error?

Re: overexposure problem

Your camera must have an exposure metter in the viewfinder that you can see or? (an arrow moving from -2 to +2 may be or somenthing like that) How do meassure the light? Matrix, center, spot? Check that you may meassure in the wrong way may be.

Re: overexposure problem

Do your level best to learn the camera handling and setting very well. A good starting point would be going thru the camera manual completely and then read a couple of good online books on photography. As professional photographer in Mumbai, I can vouch that there is lot of free content available online in PDF format for learning as well as mastering the camera and photography.

Re: overexposure problem

A common misconception these days is that digital will solve your problems. What you have to do islearn photography, not digital photography. Learn to expose properly for your subject and your intended purposes. If you are already using -1EV EC, and if you still think that things are overexposed, then just increase the negative EC and practice to learn how your camera responds under different lighting situations.

Canon rebel overexposure


Does this happen on any settings, like the Manual and auto or Program setting? If so, check that your exposure compensation is not off.

When I shoot in Raw + jpeg, no raw filkes show up.


I had the same problem, basically all you need is a RAW converter, the canon software should do and should be provided with the camera and if you havent got that then there is a wide selection of free software on the internet im sure of it just search for it, or a lot easier not to use RAW in the first place...

Overexposure unless in manual mode


Is your "exposure compensation" (the button with the +/-) set to "0" or some other setting?

8 GB CF card has made the camera lose the Raw function even when I return old 1GB CF card still the same... any ideas?


1st, make sure the camera is in the Creative zone P, TV, AV, M or A-Dep. I have made this mistake many time and everytime I forget I moved the dial.

If dial is in the Creative Zone and still no RAW option then have the camera format the card, if that doesn't work do the following:

Turn off camera,
Remove lens,
Put on body cap.
Remove CF Card
Remove Battery
Let sit for about 30 minutes.
Put battery back in.
Put CF Card back in
Turn camera on
Put camera in Creative Zone
Push Menu button
Push Set button twice and check if RAW is now an option

If not then you can try the clear all settings function in the Set-Up 2 menu. Push the menu button then the left arrow button arrow down to the clear settings line push set the clear all functions.

If this doesn't help then I would say carry it to your nearest Canon Dealer that offers cleaning and service.

New computer. No Canon sofware. Canon Rebel EOS purchased second hand. Where can I get the software to download the pictures?


Hopefully you have the EOS Digital Rebel. (The EOS Rebel was a film camera.) Without the software that came with the camera (ZoomBrowser EX for Windows or ImageBrowser for Mac), you can only download JPG images using the PTP communication mode. The communication mode is set up in the Menu system on the camera, and is either "Normal" or "PTP". If you want to download RAW files, you will need to use a software application that has a converter for Canon RAW files (Photoshop, etc.). If you didn't get a User's Manual, you can get one here.

Setting RAW as file format


Make sure that the mode dial is not set to one of the 'Basic Zones', i.e. Auto, Portrait, Landscape, etc. You should be able to select RAW or RAW+L in P, Tv, Av, M, or A-DEP.
