Canon EOS 400D help *__*
24 Oct 2008
hi. well. i dunno what to say first really.
hello to all.
okay, well i guess I'm not helping myself at all. okay! i'll go straight to the point.
here it goes,
i have my Canon EOS 400D in hand.
it's quite a great gift, actually. and i loved it so much.
i just started having some difficulties in it.
not big though.
i noticed that the photos that i took looked okay on the LCD screen, however, when i transfer those pictures in the PC, it looked rather darker than usual.
i find it odd.
i checked the camera's LCD brightness' display, just to make sure that it is just right in the middle.
then i think the problem is in my monitor.
but it's just on the right set up.
i tried to print directly on my Selphy from the camera to check if the color is OK there, but it is darker too.
another situation is that i used my 400D's light meter as a guide when I'm doing my traditional photography plate. I'm using Pentax 35 mm camera by then, (film).
That camera's light meter is screwed, so my final option is to use the 400D.
I got shocked that some of my pictures, the ones before dawn, were underexposed. others, plain black.
i wondered, it looked normal when i grabbed my 400D.
then i transferred those pictures in the PC, i was shocked to see that it really IS dark indeed.
*the photo with the girl and bonnet look darker than the original picture. i had to make some adjustments to make it look okay.*
do you have any idea about it?
i really wanted to have answers on these questions.
i don't want to post process every photo that i took with photoshop!. that's just.. too much.
would be very glad to see a comment regarding this,,
