    When I take a shot outside when the sky is blue with spotted white clouds my pictures come out with the sky all white? What do you think is causing the other than opperator error:)?

    You don't really need it, just meter it to the blue sky, then recompose and ignore the meter.
     
  6. It's Auto White Balance. The camera is taking the blue sky, and evaluating to be 16% grey, and adjusting everything accordingly. Look up WB in your manual, or Google it. Set it manually. Buy a grey card, set your WB, and you'll be fine.
