Defective shutter curtain opening, it needs pro service. Shutters have life expectancy around 5thou to 10 thou shots.

Canon T2i viewfinder issue

Try increasing the ISO rating, see if that gives you a different reading - you may indeed be underexposing if there is insufficient light

The camera will not expose pictures properly; they are underexposed inside, or overexposed outside. The exposure adjustment feature is set in the middle or neutral mode. Changing the iso does not help. ...

It sounds like the light meter in the camera itself is probably broken and needs to be taken to a repair shop. Try using it in manual mode until you can get it fixed.

Canon Digital Rebel XT auto focus

Auto Focus does not determine exposure. Only sharpness. "Wrong" exposure could be due to the metering mode being set in Spot Metering. Set it back to Evaluative Metering which may improve the overall even exposure of your shots. Test your shots in full auto or P mode. M (Manual) mode will require you to check the exposure setting manually (you can see the indicator in the viewfinder when you half-press the trigger)

Underexposed image on Auto mode

You can change the ISO setting also to Auto. If you have the advanced guide (see pp 80, 107).
Press the ISO button it will switch from various ISO setting to AUTO.

Do remember in Bright light , a lower ISO number like 80 will give you very fine images, while as the light level goes down, the ISO number will change to a higher number and the image will become more grainer.
I hope I could answer to your query.
Please do rate. Thanks

Flash not firing properly

Could be the metering mode you are in. Could be the subject is too far away. Could be ISO is set wrong. Could be the lens aperture can't open up enough. Could be the exposure compensation isn't set correctly. Could be FE Lock is still on and the composition has changed. Does the <flash> icon continue to blink? Then you are too far away.

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.

When shooting indoors with my 300d (base rebel digital),I have been encountering some light metering problems.I use the 430ex as an external flash. While shooting a subject in front of an external light...

Set the metering mode to Partial Metering. This uses only 9% of the field of view, centered around the middle square in the viewfinder, as the subject area. If you still find it too bright, try changing the exposure compensation a couple of clicks.

DARK POTRAITS

what do you mean dark? if they are underexposed... extend you exposure time.

There is a small round button near the shutter release... hold that down, and rotate that thumb wheel thingy. You can over or underexpose your camera's auto metering by 2 stops in 1/2 stop increments...

After that, you should learn how to take control of the camera and shoot in manual mode. It give you the ultime power
