Sunny 16 Doesn’t seem to work with my T6

I understand this can be considered an archaic concept, but it is helping me to understand Manual shooting better.

I have my aperture set f/16 in bright sunlight, and my ISO at 200 and shutter speed at 1/200 and my meter shows my camera as WAY under exposed. the articles on sunny 16 says that this is also a way to find out whether or not your camera meter is accurate. Well apparently mine is not even close.

Before trying this, I would either be in Aperture mode and let the camera handle shutter speed, or manual and just adjust my shutter speed until my light meter leveled off. But plugging in the formulas from sunny 16 should work as well.

I really hope I’m just missing something. I did go through my camera to see if I had any kind of overcompensated settings but I don’t.

Any takers?

Thanks!

Canon EOS Rebel T6 (EOS 1300D)
