Hi, Thanks for trying to help me. I will have to look that up Canon DPP software.
I have to go out this afternoon so I likely wont have time until tonight.
Let me read and watch the video and then I will know what you are talking about.
Sorry for not having done that.

You can download updates to DPP from their websitte, but they won't install unless you've aklready installed the version from the CD that came with your camera.

I agree with wave01. The two outdoor scenes have too much contrast. You need to remember that the camera is trying to expose everything in its metering area. You have some really bright areas and some really dark areas. The camera will pick an intermediate exposure level that works equally poorly for both. My guess is that you were using Evaluative metering, which tries to expose the entire frame properly. (See page 102 of the Canon T3i Instruction Manual.) If you'd have used any of the other Metering Modes, you'd have probably gotten better results.

  • 'Full Frame' is the new 'Medium Format'.

what were the settings of the t3i
The exif is in the photos, if you don't have it then grab something oPanda iExif. I'm just off to bed otherwise would have copied and pasted all the settings but feeling too lazy lol
