I was told to trash my Canon Rebel XT, which by the way I just purchased. Someone told me that when the pictures are printed there is a red tint. Is this correct? He said that anybody who knows about printing pictures will tell me the same thing. Is there something that can be done to prevent this? Thanks in advance for any input or advice.

Comparing Nikon to Canon or Canon to Nikon is like comparing Ford and Chev. They both do the job some swear by Chev while others swear at them same with Ford. Yes I've noticed a slight red bias on my Canon gear but nothing that can't be corrected with a proper white balance. To me Nikon had a more unflattering skin tone and I was and still do tweak the color in an image editing program. I use many different digital cameras in my work and personally own four different major manufacturer digital camera systems.
I own Rebel XT and Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII lens with plastic mount and noticed many pictures with missed focus, either front or back focusing. Meaning objects slight forward or below the intended subject is in focus. I've sent my body and the lens to Canon for evaluation and thet adjusted my focus sensors on the body. I still have problems and there are many threads related to focusing on this camera with 50mm f1.8 that the sensors on this camera do not do so well with fast lens and prone to missed focus.
Test your camera's focusing ability with a book or magazine where you focus on just one specific line and see if it is truly in focus when you review the picture.
If the image has a small icon of a skeleton key along the bottom when viewing it, it means the image has been protected. You have to un-protect the image to erase it. This is done from the Playback Menu (the one with the arrow on the tab). Specific instructions are on page 115 in the manual. (Manual is available here if you don't have it.)
I have the SAME problem. I wrote to Canon and they told me to shut off the camera, take the battery out and wait 20 MINUTES! I can't WAIT that long, especially when I'm WORKING! I rely on this camera to work! Its annoying! Then they said if that doesn't work, to SEND IT IN and if its under warranty, they'll fix it for free.. if its NOT, then I have to pay for it. BUt the "technical team" will make the decision.
It is not possible to embed the date/time stamp as part of the image itself with the XT. The date/time information is stored as part of the exif information stored in the image at the time of shooting.
However, you do have a couple options for printing images with the date/time stamped onto the image:
If you use the direct print capabilities of the camera when connected to a compatible printer (PictBridge, CP, or DirectPrint are all supported), you are able to enable an option that will print the image with the date/stamp printed on the image. There are also software packages that you can use that will do the same when printing from the computer.
And finally, it is possible, with some photo finishers, to request that they imprint the shooting date/time on the image. This will vary from photo finisher to photo finisher, and the will be some who can't, or won't, do this.
