After playing around all weekend with the New Rebel I am still having problems with the images being too dark. I checked exposure settings and it's right in the middle. I tried moving the exposure value up to +1 and they are still too dark. When I open them in the file viewr program and change the exposure within the program the pictures look fine. Does everyone have to do this to get a decent shot? Doesn't seem like you should have to. Just curious. I am thinking of taking this camera back and getting the new sony coming out next month.

I guess it might be possable that you have a lemon go back to the store where you bought it bring the cam a charged batery and a CF card and see if another Digireble produces the same problem. if it dosn't it's the camera and exchange them if it's not.....

Monitor calibration is always a great idea, however you have a more dependable indicator on the camera: the image histogram. Take a shot with no exposure compensation. Use a scene that has a range of tones from dark to light but is not dominated by either the dark or light tones. Look at the histogram; it should take up most of the width of the histogram window, but not be pushed against either end. If there is nothing in the rightmost half of the histogram, the image is noticeably underexposed.
