EOS M50 Mark II Pics Are Too Dark


Hi, I bought a canon eon mark 2 hoping to be able to take photos and update my air bib listing. The pics are too dark. Can anyone help me to make these pics better or help me get my settings better set up?IMG_0559.jpegIMG_0560.jpegIMG_0561.jpegIMG_0563.jpegIMG_0545.jpeg



It looks loke these are massively under- exposed. 

It would help to know what mode you were shooting in (M, Av,Tv etc) and what your settings were. I.e. aperture, shutter speed, ISO.

Also what lens were you using please?

cheers, TREVOR

Right. Sounds like you're a newbie. Didn't even say what model camera you have. "Eon mk 2" is not it.

Do you have the manual for your camera? Download it from Canon, or buy a printed manual on eBay, from UsedPhotoPro or KEH. Start by resetting your camera to factory defaults. Then set the camera to P(rogram) mode and see if you get good exposures. There is a lot to learn about your camera!


What Tronhard said, need to have more information.

Canon EOS T7; EF-S 18-55mm IS; EF 28-135mm IS; EF 75-300mm; Sigma 150-600mm DG


Start by placing the camera in automatic mode (on the camera's mode dial, switch it to the green A symbol surrounded by a box).

If that also leads to issues, you'll probably want to then reset the camera back to its default settings.  Once we know the exact model number of your camera (e.g. EOS 5D Mark II), we'll be able to provide details on how to reset it.


EOS 5D IV, EF 50mm f/1.2L, EF 135mm f/2L, 600EX-RT (x6), ST-E3-RT
EOS C70, RF 24-70 f/2.8L IS, EF-EOS R 0.71x

I have a canon EOS M50 Mark 2. I have been tinkering with the settings so much that I think it's smart to go back to factory default. 

To reset the EOS M50 Mark II, refer to page 633 of the User Manual.

Basically, bring up the "Wrench" Funcion settings and select #5.  The top item in that menu should now be "Reset Camera"


EOS 5D IV, EF 50mm f/1.2L, EF 135mm f/2L, 600EX-RT (x6), ST-E3-RT
EOS C70, RF 24-70 f/2.8L IS, EF-EOS R 0.71x

That's right. Tinkering without knowing what effect changes have is getting you in trouble.
