View Full Version : E-510 exposure problem

My E-510 has suddenly (in the middle of some photo sessions on Saturday) decided to under-expose on all settings other than Auto. I could perhaps live with minor compensation, but I have to set the EV to +3 :eek:

I looked for a way to revert to factory settings, in case I've done something which I didn't realise at the time (which is very possible :o), but couldn't find it.

Any suggestions from the masters of the Oly universe would be welcome before the camera goes back under warranty.

Well the quickest way to check you have not upset anything is to use Auto which overides any user settings.

To reset to factory default use [menu button] [settings 1] [custom reset] [reset] [OK]

Many thanks, Mike. This seems to have solved the problem (although I'm looking for sackcloth & ashes for not spotting it myself :o) Mind you, I'd still like to what I did to cause the problem in the first place :confused:

Did you perhaps change the metering accidentally, maybe to one of the spot settings?
