It is actually kind of complicated to activate it. If I remember correctly You absolutely must have the camera in the P mode on the dial on top of the camera and then go into your menus and activate the live option. It should say enabled.That needs to be done only once. be sure though when ever you use it you have it in the P mode. to activate it once you have enabled it , all you have to do is press the set button on the back of your camera. and it should come on. also the live view is limited with auto focus. it is best used with manual focus.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.

How do you active the LCD screen on Canon EOS Rebel XS. I've read teh manual but still cannot active it. this is to review the shot before you take the shot.


In your manual it is on page 95, on how to do this,
It is called LIve view shooting and it does not work on basic zone modes.
1. Set camera to a creative zone mode
2. then under that tools option select live view function setting then press the set button
3 select live view shoot then hit set
4. press the menu button to exit

HOW DO I SHOOT WIHT THE LCD INSTEAD OF THE VIEWFINDER (CANON REBEL XS)


Doo, the xs has live view. Hit the menu button, go to the 5 colum, enter Live view function settings. And enable it. That easy!! to use auto focus you hold down the "zoom out." button
p.s. You can always read the manual. :)
Have a good one.
