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?

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.

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.

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.

No raw files

Go to the camera's Menu and scroll to Image recording quality and you can select RAW.

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

Today my rebel xs was overexposing outside pics in auto mod. To get some kind of shot I have to go to manual with shutter at 1/4000, aperture 36, iso400 and still am getting heavy overexposure. Why?

The Rebel XS has an exposure compensation of + or - 2 EV in 1/3 or 1/2 stop increments. I suspect that this setting has been altered resulting in over exposures. It will not matter where you set your camera in manual operation it will still yield an overexposure.

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?

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.
