I take pictures of my son’s football team and the camera is set in S ISO 800. The pictures are fantastic until about 15 minutes and the screen goes really dark and will only take dark pictures unless I change it to auto mode. Anyone know why?

if light conditions change, it might be better to set ISO to auto so it can compensate for changing light conditions.

IF you shoot with max aperture and fixed shutter speed and ISO, the camera can only make images darker if light gets darker.
