20 Most Recent Canon PowerShot SX500 IS Digital Camera - Jap/Eng - Page 7 Questions & Answers

Because you did not give a clue to what powershot model you have, I have to keep my answer less specific.
Every camera has a setting, called automatic. On Canon cameras most of the time it is a green or black camera logo on the main dial.
It also could be you chose one of the scenes programs, like shooting on the beach or in snow.
When you switch to automatic, all pictures should be more or less correct. The camera should prevent you from taking pictures when there is not enough light, in automatic.
If your camera is in automatic, and the pictures are still to dark, something else must be wrong. If the automatic trick works, read the manual, to check when you can use the other modes.

I think your card is damaged. Try connecting to your computer and check available space. Take a backup and format it from your PC, check if it is formatting completely.

If the card is not Class 10 you will also have problem recording movie from a camera. You need a high speed card to record video.

Unless you have reason not to, stick with the Large image size (see "Changing the Recording Pixel Setting" on pages 70-71 of the manual).

The biggest thing to watch out for is that the camera takes pictures that are 4 by 3 in aspect ratio. That's equivalent to a 4.5 inch by 6 inch photo, so some of the top and bottom will be cut off when you make a 4x6 print. Alternatively, many photo places will give you 4.5x6 prints for the same price.
