Hi All,

I set a slow shutter speed of 10 seconds, the metering always shows over-exposed (all the way to the left), how do i go about producing a normal exposure !? If i set a faster speed i can get a normal exposure..

Any tips ?

Thanks in advance !

Are you talking about the displayed histogram of the shot? If so, all the way to the left would be underexposed. Play back your shot on the LCD and check the histogram. If the pic is too dark, decrease your shutter speed and/or open up to a larger lens aperture (smaller f/number). If the pic is too bright, increase shutter speed and/or close down to a smaller lens aperture(larger f/number).
