Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Downloaded pix from Rebel XT turn out really dark on my PC


\015 My Rebel XT is new and I am using a Speedlite 580EXII flash. After talking an indoor picture with my flash, fully automatic setting, the picture looks great on the camera's display. However, when I download it onto my computer each image is very dark and I have to correct the brightness with my computers software. The pictures are as dark as if I was not using any flash at all. Any suggestions?\015

Hi Dborror,
\015\012This is a very nice camera, it would not be good not to use it, because of a silly problem such as this.
\015\012The first thing to remember, is that the camera has a very bright light to look through the photos to prevent glare and other problems.

  1. Look at the histogram when you shoot, may need to compensate the exposure, make sure it isnt set to something by factory default.
  2. \015\012
  3. \015\012Another factor to consider with fluorescent lights is that they 'flicker' 60 times a second rather than being on continuously like an incandescent bulb. This isn't obvious to the naked eye but if your shutter speed is less than 1/60 it can, and will, affect your exposure.
  4. \015\012
  5. \015\012One of your problems is that you expect the result out of the camera to be perfect.With most digitals, and with this camera you might have to do the tweaking yourself, the odd time. Personally most of my shots come out a bit on the dark side becuase I know that is better than being over exposed and I tweak in my editing programs.
\015\012I hope I've sheaded some light on your problem, and if your problem persists I'll mess around with mine to ee if I can help you a bit more.\015\012Have a good evening, and happy new year.

Dark pictures I have a Canon EOS REbel T2 with the standard 28-90 lens. It had been working fine, but now my pictures are (almost all) coming out very dark and grainy. Further, I note that if I turn the camera 90 degrees to that a "portrait" picture -- 6" tall and 4" wide, I see a dark rectangle in the picture in the bottom right quadrant. I always set the camera to full program (the green rectangle). I have been using Fuji 400 speed file of late. Do you have any idea what I"m doing wrong?


Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure. ... Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

KODAK CAMERA I can put fresh batteries in and take a few pics download them shut it off then turn it back on, and it will not let me, it shuts off just about as soon as I turn it on. I can take the same batteries out and put them back in and it will work for a few minutes then there it goes, its turns itself off. I went to try to get another one and they said since itwas 10 days past the 30 day limit. I had to get ahold of you. I really feel like throwing it in the dam River.

Hi, my Mustek dig. camera is not displaying anything. Having bought this about a year ago and not really using it, I don't remember if it came with a charger or just the USB cable. Anyway, I plugged in the USB cable and turned on the cam, but nothing popped out on my PC. The power button is still on (blue light) and does not turn off. But I still can not see anything - the cam is dark. Please let me know how I can start using it again. Thank you

System Error I downloaded the pictures onto a CD from my Konica Minolta today like I always do. When I was finished I went onto the camera to delete the pictures and format the card - like I always do. (I have had this camera for right at 1 year) When I turn the switch to the "view" mode it comes up with "system error" within about 2 seconds and the whole camera turns off. If I go really fast I can delete one picture at a time. I can still take pictures and they still show up (for 2 seconds).


Same thing happend to my father's camera (memory card). Seems that deleting the pictures from the card via the computer solves the problem. Corrupt files on the card cause the camera to read system error. No corrupt files = working camera! :) ... Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z5 Digital Camera

Wavy lines I have a first year digital rebel using the 18-55mm lense that came with it. Whenever I shoot a photo of a home, the siding and the roof lines are wavy. Also when taking interior photos, using the pop up flast, my pictures seem to turn out a little dark.


For the wavy problems, try eliminating camera processsing by taking the photos in raw format and viewing them with photoshop or some other photo software. If the waves are gone, it's the processing/compression algorithims on the camera. For pop-ups ... Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens
