I forgot how difficult adjusting lighting settings can really be on this camera. it seems it and I have a bit of a disagreement as to what a properly exposed photo is supposed to look like. What it considers “0” on the exposure meter is always at least a little too bright for me, so nearly every photo I take is a little under-exposed. Maybe it’s right and I just light my photos slightly darker, I don’t know.
Despite what issues I have with it, I still really like this camera and it has served me well for nearly three years. I still hope to be able to afford a good, inexpesnsive DSLR someday (the Canon Rebel t3i has been reduced drastically in price) but for now this one still does well. Taking shots with actual cameras may be tedious, but it is a lot more rewarding than doing so on cell phones.
