Just joined the world of DSLRs with a Canon 450D
I haven got a chance to explore it outdoors and have been shooting in my house at night after work.
Tried with the kit lens and a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I notice all my shots came out very bright on the LCD scrn. the details are there. had to work on using exposure compensation but shots come out consistently bright. To me, it seems like its over exposed.
All shots are taken without flash. Did try a few settings but I will always have to compensate down the exposure to get a satisfactory brightness. Shots are experimented with Auto, P, Av and Tv, all yield similar "over exposed" shots.
For white balance, I tried AWB and Florescent light and both are equally bad.
Compared the shots with a canon ixus 40 compact, the compact seems to give the correct exposure.
Is this normal? Want to know if its the environment or the fault with the camera. Of coz, the user is an inexperience user.
thanks in adv.
