Hello all i have a quick question. Ive been playing with my 60d a lot lately - I can't seem to stop taking super bright photos. Ive even tried shooting in auto and everything is coming out super bright. any ideas what im doing wrong? i attached a link to my flickt photostream, mainly check out the first two boat shots. yes the suns out but i took a picture with a reg 200 camera and the lighting was better. any ideas would be greatly appreciated. thanks

Looking at the EXIF on your first photo, you have it set for +1 EV, which adds a stop of exposure. It also was shot at 1600ISO which is probably a lot higher than needed for those conditions. As it was probably on auto, it tried to adjust by using an F25 aperture.

Start with removing the +1EV

Exif says +1 EV. Grab the manual and look up exposure bias. Also says flash fired, maybe under exposure compensation. Someone with a 60D may chime in...Doh, too slow.

thanks fellas...i went in and looked at what my settings were (im very new with this camera) and i think i had everything completely out of wack after playing with it so much. I did a hard reset, and will test it out tomorrow...we'll go with major operator error!

I can't see the EXIF data with DPP on the random prints I selected but "the Rock" seems serioulsy out of focus.
