I just bought a used D60, It seems like 80 percent of the pictures I have take with the flash are undre explosed. Has anyone experiences this and does anyone have any suggestions.





Thanks

Jerry

The built-in flash, or using an external?

If it's the built-in, look in your manual about adjusting the output. You can increase the power on it a good bit - it may have been set low, or, if you're taking pics of something at extreme distances you will need an external flash.

It is an external flash. I actually had to set it to plus 2 explosure compenstation to get a descent picture.

I think there is something wrong with it.

It's not just the D60 but most if not all Canon dSLR behave this way: http://photonotes.org/articles/eos-flash/#digital

Either use the 'FEL' lock or put the camera on manual (the flash is still on automatic E-TTL). This will change the camera's evaluative metering to center-weight which will expose the flash more correctly
