    Exposure problem. Check your aperture, shutter and ISO. These are the main setting to get the correct exposure.

    ISO200
    focal length 28mm
    MaxAperture Value f/3.5

    im shooting from Aperture manual mode. Wat setting should i change?

    under exposed. and probably see if you can get a better exposure with lower ISO - the noise is apparent in this one.

    If I am not wrong, there is nothing wrong with the picture or settings, it is properly exposed with the settings managed by your camera.
    It sets the exposure according to the light in the houses.

    use flash.

    Looks under-exposed and noisy.. Use a tripod.. Change to f/25 for aperture mode, and for shutter-priority mode, try 22sec exposure..

    I guess that's one thing for small sensors - I was using E-P3 previously, low light/night shooting performance isn't very good. @ISO 200 and produces obvious noises in the above pic

    I would probably suggest opening up the aperture to probably between f/11 to f/16 and allowing longer exposures.

    Set to f/12 or f/11 because:

    1. At f/22 your image suffers from diffraction
    2. You want more light to enter the lens.

    Learn how to use your exposure meter, it's covered in your manual.

    Why F/25?

    mistake.. meant to put 22s..

    i nv tried shooting in PAS mode before, but i tend to use long exposure at nite, if i could..

    i once tried to take a similar photo at my neighborhood n my setting was 30s, f/22, iso100..

    uh.. was i wrong?

    go easy on the aperture, f8 or f9 should suffice.

    set to base ISO and tweak shutter speed to compensate the exposure.

    but i think you will hit the 30s limit with ISO 200.

    aiya, just play around the 3 settings until the photo gets expose correctly.

    without being physically at the location, it is very difficult to advise what kinda settings to use.

    Night scene metering can be quite inaccurate sometimes.

    I suggest you stick to P mode and adjust the exposure compensation instead.

    @TS while you're at it, also please take note that girls watching from the block are not looking in your direction while you're flashing at it

    jokes aside...

    depends on what you want to achieve. we use a smaller aperture i.e larger F-number to get a greater DOF for landscape. however, when that happens, your shutter speed is slower. (small aperture = less light reaching the sensor for the given shutter speed)

    your camera's metering screwed up the exposure. since you're in aperture priority, what you need to do is to use Exposure Compensation as mentioned by the rest of the bros and sis here. increase it to +1, then +2 and you'll see the difference.

    at night, to get a good exposure where the subject is well-exposed, you need to slow down your shutter speed. since your camera's already on a tripod, perhaps you can try Manual Mode, use the same Aperture settings, while using slower shutter speeds each time to get different exposures. then, it's easier to understand how to get the exposure you need.

    that being said, there's no magic settings for exposure. it depends on the amount of light and the resulting effect that you want to achieve.

    Try not to go above f16, there might be lens diffraction. For such shots, f8-f11 is already more than enough.
