The problem is caused by the down loading software. Both Photoshop elements and Canon package software have a red-eye fixing tool option, i can't remember which one is most problematic, but the simple solution is to untick the automatic red-eye fix on this software. Then assuming you have not formated the card, re-download the photos (you'll have to delete the ones you have previously downloaded with the black eyes- or give the new download a different file name) This should stop this happening.

How to correct red eye


One of the flash settings on your camera is for red-eye. If the pic you took already has red-eye, you can remove it with a photo-editing program.

The LCD screen on my 40D shows the image taken, or the live view image, but there are large areas of missing image. Almost like the picture has been laid on a black background then a large piece torn out...


If the Live View shows areas of total black, the LCD is probably faulty and needs to be taken to a Canon Dealer for repair/replacement. I believe the pictures are still okay on the computer in this case?

My canon EOS 40D with 18 - 55 IS , when continuous shooting mode is selected, slows down after taking 6 shots. However as per the spec its capable of taking 75 jpegs or 17 RAW images.Please resolve this...


Slow down after taking 6 RAW files ...
A RAW file is Approx. 12.4MB.
The memory usage is approx. 74,4 MB
The internal memory (Buffer) has a size for up to 75 JPEG compressed images.

Which size has the smallest jpg?
JPEG/Small: Approx. 1.2MB (1,936 x 1,288)
The Buffer is approx. 80 MB.

The data are calculated under Canons laboratory conditions.

The maximum Burst (the 17 shoots) means that the camera is writing to the card and the buffer is full. Than the cam will stopping taking pictures.

Which kind of Card do you use?
Check the spec for the card (write speed) and maybe buy a faster card.

Continuous Red Eyes and dark photos every other one.


1) The red eye effect is due to pupil dilation. When the person is standing in dark, the pupils dilate to allow more light to enter the eye so that objects are visible. In such conditions if you try to take a snap then you might end up having Red eyes.
What Red eye reduction technique does is that it flashes a series of times before the actual snap is taken and due the series of flashes, the pupil try to adjust by closing down and reducing the red eye effect, hence stronger the flash, less is the red eye effect.
Also, there are bundles of software out there which can detect red eye and remove the same.. I am not sure, you might have received software even along with your camera that can address this issue.

2) The use of Speed-Lite 430 might not be always .. It depends on the conditions and distance of the object from the camera lens. Onboard lite should be enough to capture the subjects that are within 5-6 meters and to get rid of shadows where as if the surroundings are very dark then you might want to fallback on Speed-Lite 430.

3) The basic difference between the RAW and JPEG is that RAW is uncompressed format and you can do editing and compression at later time where as JPEG is a compressed format and you might not be able to do as much as you can do with RAW format. Unless you want to edit the images at later stage, you might not want to use RAW.

Please let me know if any further explaination is needed.. Till then Happy Photography :)

Srinivas
