    i got a new camera and even on automatic all the pictures turn out too dark.. what can i do aside from shooting all in manual and mentally compensating down a stop every time i take a picture?

    a little trick i do if my unsure about the settings, i point at the object im trying to shoot .. press the shutter button down halfway .. i check the speed and aperture setting ... go to manual .. put the same settings .. adjust them up or down accordingly .. if ur using digital

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos OK to edit
    Is it a "new" camera or a new to you camera? Which ever it is I would take it back it sounds like there is a problem with the camera.
