Hi, I'm new to the forum and OH Boy do I need help! :?

In Aug 04 I purchased the S5000 and until yesterday the pics have come out really well, the lighting in the foreground and background etc OK (on auto) Yesterday we went out walking, really bright sunny weather, blue skies and the pictures came out dark well the foreground did, nearly black (setting on auto again - learning manual later )

Is this me?:? I know not to take into the sun, I didn't, and I was not standing in the shade looking out into a lighter area. I have gone through the manual, checked the colour etc, with no success....any ideas, or is it a case for the "Fujiman"

Thanks

Seems like this might be a small problem about the auto white balancing, and exposure settings.

Meaning... Point at something bright, and the EV (the screen) will get darker, do a half shutter button focus lock and it will lock in the brightness of that scene, then point at a darker area and it exposes differently.

=o) Simple as , 1 - 2 - 5.9086 billion. =o) *grin*

I already knew about depressing the shutter half way etc, but I think you're right there is a problem with the autowhite balance cos I did what you suggested today and it came out OK. Its still under warranty, I may have a chat with Fuji.


Thanks again
