With the 18-55 mm kit lens on my Canon 1100D in Tv or M mode, when the shutter speed is more than 1/200th it always always produces dark images. The max f-stop this lens can go to is f/3.5.
SMALL F-STOP NUMBER = LOTS OF LIGHT
I know that a fast shutter speed lets in less light, but a small f-stop lets in more light. In my case with the 18-55 mm kit lens, the camera always produces dark image and I'm not able to use the full flexiblity of my camera even if the lighting condition is good.
Do I have to use a smaller f-stop like f/1.8 and then try or is ther something wrong with the settings?
