Gosh Megz, That's prolly more than anyone wants to type. Go to the Library or a book store. I'll try to explain white balance for you. Inside the camera is a program that evaluates the light during exposure. It tries to determine what is white and adjust the other colors in the photos accordingly by adjusting tint and temperature. Your eyes and brain do this for you. If you have a tripod try taking a photo in automatic mode and write down what the shutter speed and f stop was for that photo. Adjust your camera to those settings manually and take the same photo over. This way you will get a consistent photo to look at. Then change your color balance to different settings like daylight, cloudy, shade, tungsten (which is incandescent lighting) and fluorescent and view the difference in colors after you download to your image viewer on your computer. You'll think you went back to the late 60's.

When The battery on my Canon 400d goes flat it loses the date and I have to re set it. I didn't need to do that until recently.


There is a small backup battery in the main battery compartment. I believe the XTi uses a CR2016 battery. It provides backup power to maintain the camera's settings when the main battery is removed.

You may have the white balance set incorrectly. If so, set it to "auto white balance".

I want purchase a zoom lens 55-250,70-300,75-300 for my Canon EOS 400D camera what is the price range?


If you are talking about canon only (not sigma/ tamron etc) lenses then there are many different variations of the above lenses ranging from a few hundred to over a thousand UK pounds ( I dont know your currency/country) If you are looking at the budget market then the best value of the 3 mentioned id the 55-250 by canon which has good optical quality and built in IS (Image stabilistaion) and is remarkable value for a CANON branded lens

Other option in the price range would be the 75-300 mk III but it is non IS but does give you a longer reach.

Canon EOS 400D LCD screen problem


There is no live preview mode on this camera. I am not sure if that is what you are referring to, but you can only use LCD for review and menu, not as a viewfinder.

The new Rebel XSi is the only one in the rebel series with this new feature.

Hope this helps!
