Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I have a canon rebel xti. Some of my images are soft...not too soft, but a little. If I upgraded to canon 40 D slr, would my pictures be sharper, like around someones eyes, assuming I keep the lens, aperture settings, and shutter speed, and ISO the same? In other words,is an amateur photog. like myself going to be able to take better pictures with a different camera body...the 40 d vs. the rebel xti? thanks, dr john haitianhearts@gmail.com

I have a Rebel XTi and take professional images. It could be that your lens isn't as sharp as it should be or your sharpness settings in the camera are set low.

The images are not crisp - as if not fully in focus


I am having the same problem. I bought a Tamron zoom lens as an add on. This lens costs more than the camera and yet images are not as sharp as i would expect from such a highly touted camera. My Kodak Z740 point and shoot gives sharper prints. This is very frustrating. I bought Rebel for Dummies and still am having the same problem. Very frustrating

Camera works great, but there is no image on the screen


If you mean that you can't preview your picture on the LCD (like compact digital cameras), this feature was not available on digital SLRs made before 2007 (Canon calls this "live view"). The Digital Rebel XTi came out in 2006.

Lcd screen shows settings for camera not the image of what it is

EOS 400D/Rebel XTi doesn't have live view function, so you cannot see the picture you are taking.

Canon rebel xti focus issues


I think it might be a lens issue.
make sure you change the macro option. the macro must be activated if you are taking a picture of something which is close to the camera. if it's not activated, the picture will not be focused.
The same will happen if the item is far and the macro is ON.

Lcd screen stays on and cannot see subject


"Live View", where you can see and compose your picture on the LCD, was not available on any digital SLR before 2007 (the Rebel XTi came out in late 2006). So you need to compose your picture using the optical viewfinder, take your picture, and the picture shows up on the LCD after you've taken it.

But it's still faster than having to wait until the film is developed. :-)

LCD screen not working


You will be pleased to hear there is nothing wrong with your camera, that's the way it is I'm afraid, there is no live preview on most dSLR's except the most recent, most expensive models..

It took me a while to get used to the idea after using compacts for a few years, but we were quite happy with the viewfinders on our film SLR's...

Happy snappin

Date on pictures taken and movie shooting on canon eos 400d


The EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel XTi do not support stamping the date and time on the image.

It is not possible to record the date and time as part of the image at the time the picture is taken. However, the date and time is captured in the EXIF information of the image at the point of capture. It is possible to print the image with the date and time via printing software. Please see the documentation for the software package that you use for printing images for the proper procedure.

How do i get the picture i am trying to take diplay in the LCD instead of the camera setting display? When I hit the play button instead of a picture it states No Image...???


Here's your answer:

This camera as with the majority of other DSLR's is UNABLE to display the image while you are trying to take it. There is a mirror in SLR's that blocks the sensor; you can only see the image through the eyepiece. This is a good thing. Using the screen on the back does not give you as clear of a picture or as an approximate image.

Some newer DSLR's like Canon's 40D/ Nikon D300 are capable of displaying the image on the screen but the camera is much slower when using this mode (it must close the mirror then re-open it before exposure happens). Its ONLY preferred when shooting on a tripod.

So to answer your question - you can't do it with your XTi. Period. Sorry. (not that, thats a bad thing though).

Is my canon eos 400d broken?


This is a Digital SLR With SLR cameras you can only use the viewfinder because the image comesi nto the lens and up to the viewfinder via a mirror. When to take a pic the mirror flips up[usually with a crash] and the image goes to the CCD- afterwards you will get an image briefly in the LCD.
