I just purchased a 6d. There are two problems. When I take pictures in fairly good lighting with my apture at 4 and somehow a higher iso of 6000. I am still getting dark photos. Also my Speedlite (430EXIII-RT) only fires 50 percent of the time.
Solved! Go to Solution.

I am guessing you perhaps inadvertently set camera to Manual mode?
6000 is a shutter speed; a very fast shutter speed. At that shutter speed and aperture you would need at ISO 400 to get proper exposure in bright sunlight. "Fairly bright" perhaps ISO 1000 or greater.
Set camera to Auto or Program and take a photo; that will at least sort out a possible camera problem.
Under what conditions/settings are you using flash?

If you are at ISO 6000 with Av camera should set an appropriate shutter speed for good exposure.
When you look in viewfinder is the exposure arrow at center of exposure scale?
Do you perhaps have negative exposure compensation dialed in?
Still try in Program and see what happens.

Thats what doesnt make any sence.The meter is inthe negative (-2 to be exact) at a 4 apature and 2500 iso. On my T2i the same area at a 4 apature I can move the iso all the way down to 800 and its still balanced and not dark.

" The meter is in the negative (-2 to be exact) at f4 aperture and 2500 iso." You didn't mention shutter speed. Did you shoot in Manual mode or you shot in TV mode and set the shutter speed to 1/4000, 1/8000 ???
If it is in the -2, that means it is under-exposure for 2 stops. Change the ISO to Auto ISO, set aperture to F4 and let the camera decide the shutter speed - Rotate the dial mode to AV.
Or try shooting in P or Auto modes as suggested.
Then see what happens.
