I got a hand-me-down a while back and it is a Canon EOS 5D Mark 1 with the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM lens. I've taken a couple of photography classes but I'm no expert in cameras themselves. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems like the camera need a lot of light to get the correct exposure.
Just today I was taking some photos in my room at around 10AM and it was pretty sunny outside and I had to set my ISO to 1600 just to get a shutter priority photo with around 1/80. I've used this camera on multiple occasions and every time, now matter how well lit the room is, it seems that I have to use an ISO that's above like 500. And if I don't then the photo is severely under lit.
Back in 2014, I took a photography class in which they had just bought some Nikon DLSRs (I don't know what camera it was) and all the lighting for the correct exposure was nothing reasonable and doable. With the Canon EOS 5D Mark 1 however, it seems almost impossible to take a photo unless under the perfect lighting conditions.
I know I can fix a good chunk of lighting issues in photoshop but I was just wondering if I'm personally doing something wrong or if the camera is just outdated like that or is it could possibly be another issue.
Edit: Sorry for the poor amount of info given in this post. I've taken a couple of reference photos just now with my camera in hopes that this will help showcase what I'm getting. I did also take the same photos in shutter priority mode and got the same results as manual. Also, let me know if you I should put a couple more reference photos to clarify anything and thank you for your help and patience.
