Hi There

I have just purchased a new FujifilmS7000 after owning a 4700 for 4 years. When using the S7000 in Auto mode it is over exposing very badly. If I put in any other mode I can adjust it for correct exposure. Am I doing something wrong here ?? Helppppppp..

Hi Mooze,

I must say that Ihave had an S7000 since January 2004 andI have never had a photograph over exposed so much,I even had a look at the properties of the picture you posted and compared it with settings from my own photographs and there not far off, so it makes no sense.

If you have just bought the camera i would suggest taking it back and getting a replacement, although i would give it a while and see what other replies you get from themore knowledgeable people on this forum.

Cheers for that Alan, just found out I can only get a correctly exposed picture in the manual setting and by adjusting it so it under exposes. Also when checking the historgram when taking photo and after, there are vast differences. Heres another pic of same area taken on manual setting, simlar shutter speed put brought apeture right down., notice iso has gone up to 200?

Hi Mooze,

Just a thought, but have you tried resetting the camera back to the original settings?

Turn the dial to "Set" and scroll through the options, its the last one on the third page, always worth a go.

Alan :-)

Hi Mooze,

I had another thought, have you tried taking a photo with every size setting e.g 1, 2 , 3, 6, 12F, 12N andRaw?,I would be interested to know if the Raw worked in auto mode and that jpeg didn't, that would put it down to a fault on the camera processing software.
