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?

Also, j need to add, it randomly does this when I turn the camera on indoors as well. Sometimes it’s fine, other times the images are dark. This also happens in the middle of an afternoon game with no light change. Most people I’ve talked to think it’s a camera defect but thought someone might have a better reason for this.

When you lock the shutter speed and ISO, all that can change is aperture. When it reaches the widest aperture, it would have to go dark.  It probably has enough range in daylight, but is limited when the light gets lower. Switch to Auto ISO and see if that works.
