    I have a DSLR from the Sony Alpha Series and by default, whenever i go to manual the photo shows really dark. I know i must change to a higher ISO, but im not sure how to...Does anyone have a camera from the SA series that can help me?

    What are you setting your "f" shutter speed to?

    you probably want to look into the aperture/shutterspeed issues first before you jump into fixing the iso - too high of an iso brings a lot of noise to your image.

    Did you even meter the scene ? you can't just turn it to manual set it to say F5.6 1/125 and expect it to work you have to use the meter

    Look up the terms 'Exposure', 'Shutter Speed', 'Aperture' and anything else related to basic exposure. Then read your camera's manual...twice.

    i have an alpha 200 too...when you set it at manual....use the roller to change shutter speeds...( 1/200, 1/60 etc..) to move the the meter to 0 (zero) or +/- values (depends).. the aperture is set by pressing the (+/-) button while rolling the roller....use the meter, the arrows...on the side of the meter tell you which way to roll so that the shutter speed will change to make your exposure work depending on the aperture (5.6 ,11 etc)

    Yes read that book. It is very simple to understand and will get you comfortable behind the camera.

    Thank you Gryphon and Dex especially, it was more of a hands-on learning thing
