I've determined the original caps went bad on one of the Rane EQs & the PO(s) did a hack job replacement. Looks like hell, but no issues with it working properly~

The photos turned out dark because of the back lighting coming into the windows, plus the light over the pool table. You are shooting toward both those sources of light. That fools the sensor into thinking there is a lot more light than there really is. Wait til it's dark out, then try again with interior lighting on.
