If you set your meter based on the white (or substantially white) wall, as per the attachment, I would expect the image to be underexposed.

I'm using a Canon EOS Rebel X S 35mm SLR What setting should i set my camera for a manual shutter speed?

If your camera is a Rebel XS you should have a dial on the top right with a series of letters and icons. To set your camera so you manually control the shutter speed turn this dial too "TV" (Time Value). This setting will allow you to select the shutter speed and the aperture will open or close to achieve the correct exposure. The "M" is (Manual) where you would select both the shutter speed and aperture "AV" is (Aperture Value) where the user selects the aperture they want and the shutter speed increases or decreases to obtain a proper exposure. The "P" (Program) mode allows the camera to automatically select the shutter speed and aperture

My Canon xsi's exposure lock button is stuck

Sounds Like the Camera is the one of the Full Auto modes were the exposure is selected by the Camera. To select you own exposure levels you must set the camera on the top dial to P, TV, AV or M.

Pictures too dark

Check your exposure compensation. It really sounds like someone set the camera to underexpose. This may be solved by removing the batteries for a few minutes. Other solutions are hitting the reset which will cancel all and return it to factory settings OR navigate to the exposure compensation settings and reset it there. If none of these solutions work, then the camera's internal program is messed up and its internal computer needs replaced.

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.

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over...

Try your EOS in AV (aprature value) mode. You should be able to adjust your aperature value in 1/3 or 1/2 steps dependind how you have your Custom Functions set in your camera's menu. Possibly the lens you purchased is for an EOS 35mm. If you use a 35mm lens on your eos there are some calculations you must use. When using a 35mm lens on the EOS 20D, 30D, 40D and 50D bodies, you must first calculate your focal leingth by 1.6 times. With this, your exposure changes as well.

The only EOS Digital SLR bodies that use a 35mm x 24mm CMOS sensor are the 1D and 5D. My wife uses a Tamron 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 lens on her 20D and loves it.

If this makes no difference, you may have a defective lens.

Manual shooting mode problem.

The exposure compensation dial (at the back) doesn't work when you're in Manual. In Manual, you set the shutter speed and aperture to get an image with the amount of over- or under-exposure you need. In the view finder, the "exposure meter" at the bottom shows how much light there is where the lens is pointed. When it shows what you called "2-stops", its really underexposed. Thus your black images. You need to increase ISO, open the aperture and slow down the shutter speed (or a combination of these 3 options)

Set your camera to P or full-auto. Do the photos turn out ok? If they do, then there's nothing wrong with your camera and you just need practise on the Manual mode.

Dark exposures

This could be many things. If indoors, use higher iso setting and/or use the flash. Make sure exposure compensation is set to 0, or raise it. Use one of the automatic programs and let camera pick shutter speed and aperture. In manual mode, pay attention to exposure value in viewfinder, and avoid using higher apertures unless outdoors in bright sun (f16, f22, etc) the higher this number the less light is allowed to camera.
