    Hi Im a noobie looking for some help. I purchased a l310 two days ago and took it out today and found it was taking dark phototos 80% of the time. I never had this problem with my other camera I'm wondering wether it is faulty and should take it back. Any advice

    You don't say what settings you're using or what type of pictures you're taking, but your problem sounds like user error. I suggest you work through the instruction manual with the camera to hand..to make sure you're setting it uo correctly.

    If there's a P(Program) setting, that should produce reasonable all round results as a starting point.

    You might like to have a look at the review of the l310 on this site to see what is capable of..

    Hi I have tried various modes. But even on auto modes it's the same

    That does seem odd, assuming that you're attempting to take pics in reasonable light.

    If you bought it ftom a retail dealer, it might be worth taking it back as you have cosidered and asking them to check it..

    Just a thought, it might be worth ensuring that the ISO setting is on Auto, and Exposure compensation is set to zero..

    Exposure compensation seems a likely culprit.

    Just an update got a email back from Nikon and basically said take it back and exchange it as it must be faulty. Sordid that today and all is good so far with this one
