Why is My Camera Lens Dark?
If you notice that your camera lens is dark, it could be due to a number of reasons. First, check to see if the lens cap is on. If it is, simply remove it and take a picture.
If the lens is still dark, it could be because your camera’s aperture is set to a low f-stop number like f/16. This setting lets in less light, so try switching to a higher f-stop like f/8. If your camera has an auto mode, this will automatically adjust the aperture for you based on the lighting conditions.
Another reason why your camera lens might be dark is because of the shutter speed. A slow shutter speed like 1/15 second lets in less light than a faster shutter speed like 1/250 second. So if you’re taking pictures in low light conditions, you’ll need to use a faster shutter speed to let more light into the camera.
You can also try using a flash to brighten up your photos.
How to Switch from Viewfinder to Screen Canon
If you’re like most photographers, you probably spend the majority of your time looking through the viewfinder. But there may be times when it’s more advantageous to use the LCD screen on the back of your Canon camera instead. Here’s a step-by-step guide to switching from viewfinder to screen:
1. Press the MENU button and navigate to the second tab (the one with the wrench icon).
2. Scroll down to find “LCD Brightness” and press SET.
3. Use the up/down arrows to adjust the brightness level of the LCD screen.
We recommend setting it at 0 for bright conditions and +2 for low light situations. Once you’ve found a setting that works well for you, press SET again.
4. Now scroll down to “Viewfinder Display Style.”
You’ll have three options here: Normal, Graphic, and Histogram. Choose whichever display style you prefer and press SET once again.
If you’re a Nikon user, there’s a good chance you’re using the LCD to compose your images. But what if you want to use the eye-level viewfinder? It’s easy to switch between the two on most Nikon cameras.
To switch from LCD to eyeview:
1. Look for the viewfinder/LCD button on your camera. It’s usually located near the shutter release button.
2. Press and hold the viewfinder/LCD button while looking through the viewfinder.
3. The LCD will turn off and the image in the viewfinder will be magnified.
