E-P5 images too dark on manual settings.

    I have tried a search for this, but could not find any answers.

    I have just started with m43 photography after years of using point and shoot cameras.

    If I try to take a photo on the E-P5 with manual settings, it is always too dark, even in bright sunlight. This occurs on M, P A or S. To get around this, I am using exposure bias to increase the light, but I know this has to be wrong. Setting the apeture or speed does not seem to work.

    I am sure that I am doing something wrong, but I cannot figure out what it is.

    If anyone is able to offer some tips, it would be appreciated.

    Which lens are you using? Could you post a picture with EXIF data?

    I went to take a photo to get the exfil data and on A setting it worked perfectly.

    Thank you for your response.

    I'm sorry to waste your time.

    Could have been the metering mode - such as setting 'spot highlight'
