Was shooting today with my 7d and noticed all my pictures looked terribly underexposed. No matter what, they were dark and nasty looking. And this went on for maybe 10 minutes.

Then I notice my lcd brightness was turned down. Whoops :mrgreen:

Anybody else have moments like this?

Never. All my pictures are perfectly exposed with razor sharpness and outstanding white balance...when my camera is on full auto and I think it is on Av :D


Looking for light in all the right places.

I just got my hands on a 1D Mark II last week, popped in my card, nifty fifty on and snapped away. "Wow! Something about these pictures look different in a good way" Brightness half way down.. :(

I can't remember the last time I looked at a picture on the LCD for the purpose of evaluating it. I normally use the histogram.

You are not alone. My wife says that I have 'moments' every day.

Yup, switched on back button focus, then forgot, then spent an hour trying all lenses, sweating that the cam was stuffed. We all have moments with new gear I think.

Mine was using 5dmk2 after getting it recently and then tryin to figure out when I configure back button focus the shutter button will also let you AF. Had to go back to my old 5d for rest of the shoot.

Happened to me. What really threw me off was when I'd press the shutter, I would hear noise and feel movement from the lens. But, it was just the IS motor :oops:
