why dun you post your pics and give us a little background on the day condition of the scene as well as what kind of settings you use and the type of film you use. Will be helpful to pin the problem. Now details too sketchy.

Hi, to make sure nothing goes wrong with your camera, you can try on a bright sunny day, go out to Orchard Road, take a few snap shots on the streets, dont point your camera to the sky, point it to the street level. See whether you get some correct exposure shots or still get the under exposure shots.

Is there an exposure compensation dial on the left side of your camera ? Usually at the same ring as the film rewind knob.

If there is one, it should be set to "0". Anything else would affect the light readings, causing over / under exposure.

OR

You have set the wrong ASA / ISO on your film speed ?

Similar effect as above.

FM2 don't have ex comp. Maybe is the ISO or inappropriate aperture/shutter setting.

Hello,
thank you all for e wonderful responses i got, i will definitely give it a try on all e above suggestion given. And one more thing, how do i ensure that e film i load inside is nicely fitted? Meaning that when the pictures are being developed, i dun see our pictures *invading* part of my picture? I mean this has something to do with the fitting of the film inside e camera..
