Not taking a complete picture

I got a Canon Rebel XT brand new out of the box. When I take a picture it only takes the top 25% and the rest is black. everything else works good - just no pictures!

Broken focus mirror pin. Gently lift mirror and see if the tiny focus mirror behind folds flat to the bigger mirror. If not then the pin needs replacing. Problem is that it takes some time and most of the camera needs to be disassembled to get to it inside.

I have a Canon XT Rebel, I just want to find out if you can see the picture you want to take on the display before taking it?


Sorry, the Rebel XT does not have the live view feature. This is a relatively new development in dSLRs and the XT missed the cutting edge.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

Canon 350D can only take picture it does not take video. On screen of course you can play the photos you have taken. But that is all.

Only a tenth of the picture, top portion is taken the rest is black..does this with all my lenses.


It sounds as if the mirror did not flip up completely (to say it conservatively) If it is so you have to send the camera in...

Screen black


The camera is fine. Since it is an Single Lens Reflex (SLR), it is not possible to use the LCD screen to compose your pictures. Canon answers that here: CanonUSA

Overheat


I have the same Canon Digital Rebel XT black body with 28-55 lens camera and just spent a week in Bryce, Zions and Grand Canyons at over 95 degrees in direct sunlight, taking a little over a thousand pictures and never had a problem, I wonder if it is just a certain factory-run of the camera, or maybe caused by the Card...I use Kingston CF cards. Or maybe the brand of battery-- I can't remember if I using my Canon-supplied one or the generic extra one I bought. But you might consider the battery or flash card as a possible cause. Good luck.
