Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens ?

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?



Answers :

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.

Hi there, I am having connecting my Hahnel Wireless Remote to my Nikon D90, I have not used the camera in a while and as far as I can remember, all you have to do is connect the remote to the camera. I can't find the manual anywhere. I feel I may be overlooking something really obvious. Thank you in advance.


To use the wireless remote, you need to set the camera's shooting mode to one of the remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the shutter when you press the button on the remote. The delayed remote mode waits two seconds for you to hide the ... Digital Cameras

My Vivitar Series 1 24-70 manual focus ais lens won't work on program in my Nikon FA. I bought both new, but have stored them for a long time. It works on aperture priority, shutter priority, and manual, just not in program. All my other lenses do, including other Vivitar lenses, so it must be the lens. Fresh batteries in the camera. I get the FEE message, which means the lens is not set on the smallest aperture, but it IS set on the smallest aperture. I have tried dismounting and remounti

I sounds like you have altered the white balance setting somehow. This will be in the setup menus. You want it set to auto. If it is already on auto, then I would think the camera has a fault. ... Olympus PEN EPL1 Digital Camera

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear something rattling around inside the lens and at times the lens will not auto-focus and I have to remove the lens and manually twist it to get it back to some normal operation. Is this fixable or do I need a new lens?


It sounds like the lens has been dropped or knocked and is misaligned in the guides.Repair against new lewns is a difficult one as prices vary. I would perhaps consider replacing it with a used one. Before you do borrow a similar lens from some ... Canon Digital Cameras

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry


There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

All of a sudden every picture I take with the 55-200 zoom lens is blurry and slightly out of focus. Pictures with the 18-55 lens are still sharp. I have been using that 55-200 lens for years for sports shots, and have never had any problem. I get the same blurriness shooting in both the auto sports setting and in shutter priority. It is a brand new issue. Could it be the AF servos starting to go in the lens, or am I doing something stupid?


Simplest answer is that you may have accidentally flipped the focus switch (A/M) on the lens to M. This turns off autofocus for that lens (which you might need to do if autofocus just can't resolve the image). Try turning it back to A.Ano ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera

I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck


Your boyfriend is probably right, and it makes sense, if you can't change the f-stops. \015\012The following blog on Flickr might help you:\015\012 ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

My friend left her nearly new Samsung s1070 camera at my house in working condition. Now she has asked for it back and for some reason it just wont turn on. It hasn't been used since I've had it (so I cant think of any possible damage that may have happened, it has literally sat in a draw for 4 months). I have recharged the batteries, changed the batteries, removed and re-inserted the memory card. None of these things have worked it just WONT turn on. I don't have a manual nor am I aware of an

On my d90, under M (manual mode or aperture priority), the aperture on the readout goes beyond the actual aperture range; i.e. f3.5 - 5.6; readings will show aperture range of 5 - 29 when I scroll with the sub command dial; sometimes when i remove the battery it returns to normal; how can i fix this problem permanently?


There is NOT a problem. The f3.5-5.6 indicates the maximum aperture in the zoom range. At 18mm the maximum aperture is f3.5, at 105mm it's f5.6. The minimum aperture ranges from f22 to f38.\012\012\012So, at 18mm, the aperture can range f ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens
