This is not a problem. In order to achieve faster AF operation, the live image on the LCD is not refreshed during focusing. During flex focus point, the live image on LCD never stops. If you feel anxious about the live image stoping, we recommend you to use flex focus point.

Cannot preview shots in lcd with new Canon Rebel xs 1000d


There are two modes to the XS's Live View system, selectable via Custom Function 7. Live View is disabled by default, by the way, so you'll need to find this menu item in Settings Menu 2 to turn it on. The two options are called Quick and Live modes. Quick mode works as most Live View modes do, dropping the mirror when you press the AE-Lock button (marked with an asterisk) to use the conventional phase-detect autofocus system. This temporarily blacks out the Live View image, which makes it impossible to know that you're still framing the subject and holding your AF point in the proper place.
That's why they added the second mode, which they call Live, but is better described as contrast-detect autofocus. This works just like a digicam, reading the image from the imaging sensor while adjusting the lens for the setting that produces the most contrast in the image. A small square appears in the center of the image area, and you can move it around with the cross keys. Just like Quick mode, unfortunately, you have to press the AE-Lock button first until you hear the focus confirmation beep, then press the shutter button to fire. It's a little slower at times than phase-detect mode, but it gets the job done. Live mode is really better for tripod work, where you can place the AF area right where you want it and confirm focus onscreen.
Both modes offer the ability to zoom in on your live view, excellent for confirming focus before capture. Using the Magnify button just right of the AE-Lock button, you can zoom in 5x or 10x, then press the AE-Lock button to focus if you like; but of course you can't confirm framing in that mode.

The speed is selectable from 3 types at the continuous advance. Continuous advance: Single shot AF: max. 1.8 fps (live view and anti-shake are activated for each frame. TIFF image cannot be taken), continuous AF: max. 1.9 fps (live view, AF, AE, anti-shake are activated for each frame. TIFF image cannot be taken.) Hi-Speed continuous advance: max. 2.7 fps (Anti-shake is activated for each frame. AF, AE, WB, and live view are fixed at the first frame. TIFF image cannot be taken.) UHS continuous advance: 7 fps. (Image size is fixed at 640x480. AF, AE, and WB are fixed at the first frame. TIFF and RAW image cannot be taken. Digital zoom disabled.) Actual speed may vary depending on the subjects and shooting conditions. * Three frames can be taken continuously in normal and Hi continuous mode. *In UHS mode, the images can be taken as much as possible to the limitation of the storage capacity. For reference, STD: 180 frames, FINE: 160 frames, X. FINE: 100 frames (approx.).

I do not feel comfortable performing the installation the Optional Enhancement Upgrade for DiMAGE 7, can I have the camera upgraded professionally?


If customers do not feel comfortable upgrading the DiMAGE 7 firmware themselves, they can send the camera in to the NJ repair facility with a note stating "Please Upgrade Firmware". Their camera will be upgraded, and they will be charged $49.95 (plus tax and shipping). They will receive back their upgraded camera, and a DiMAGE Viewer Ver 1.2 Upgrade CD-Rom*. (They will not receive the firmware upgrade on CD-Rom or the new DiMAGE Viewer) There is a 2-3 week turn around time once payment has been authorized. * images captured with an upgraded camera cannot be opened using previous versions of the DiMAGE Image Viewer Utility 1.11 or earlier. A DiMAGE Viewer Ver 1.2 upgrade CD-rom has been bundled with the DiMAGE 7 Optional Enhancement UPGRADE Firmware. The previous version of DiMAGE Image Viewer Utility must be installed before the DiMAGE Viewer (Ver 1.2) update can be loaded. If customers do not feel comfortable upgrading the DiMAGE 7 firmware themselves, but they want the DiMAGE 7 Optional Enhancement UPGRADE and the New DiMAGE Viewer 2.0, they should purchase the kit through our on-line store, then send the camera in to the NJ repair facility with the Firmware UPGRADE CD-Rom that they purchased. As long as the firmware CD-Rom is sent with the camera, and the camera does not show damage that may void the warranty or cause the firmware to not install properly, there will be no charge for the camera to be upgraded. There is a 2-3 week turn around time once the camera has be received. If customers attempt to install the firmware upgrade on their camera and experience a problem, or the upgrade does not complete, they should send the camera in to our NJ repair facility with the Firmware UPGRADE CD-Rom and a description of the problem. As long as the firmware CD-Rom is sent with the camera, and the camera does not show damage that may void the warranty or cause the firmware to not install properly, there will be no charge for the camera to be upgraded. There is a 2-3 week turn around time once the camera has be received.

Installation and Usage Tips for the DiMAGE 7 Optional Enhancement Upgrade:


Taken from the DiMAGE 7 Upgrade Software Installation Pamphlet… Power Supply during Update: When performing the software update, please use a set of fully charged NI-MH (nickel hydrogen) batteries or the AC Adapter AC-1L or AC-2L (sold separately). When using the AC Adapter, be sure not to inadvertently disconnect the camera during the software updating procedure, otherwise the camera may be permanently damaged. Amendment to the DiMAGE 7 Upgrade Software manual… (Located on an insertion card within Upgrade Kit and Upgrade Firmware boxes) For Windows XP users: Do not copy the dsc.app and ram.bin files directly from the CD-ROM to the CF card or the upgrade will not be executed correctly. First copy these two files onto the computer’s hard drive or desktop, and then copy them into the CF card. After upgrading: When the camera is turned to the playback mode, the no-image message appears and the images taken before the upgrade are not displayed. These images were placed in a folder with names ending in MLT03, the upgraded camera places images in folders ending in MLT14, see CompactFlash card folder organization in the DiMAGE 7 manual. To view images taken before the upgrade, select the appropriate folder in the custom 1 section of the setup menu. Refer to DiMAGE 7 manual for a description of this function. When using autofocus with the wide focus frame, the live image may freeze for an instant as the AF system determines the focus. This is because autofocus speed is increased
