Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

1 Answer

I have 400D/XTi Rebel that won't always turn on.

I have both 1 350D and a 400D, the 400D sometimes won't turn on or flash the card reader light on closing the door.

I have 3 batteries in which all work perfectly and give long life in the 350D.

The 400D also tend to discharge the 3V Cr2016 date/time battery very rapidly (about 6 weeks)

I can recover it sometimes by removing all batteries and leaving it for a week. Then restart it with fully charged ones. After this it will accept any battery and work. This method is not 100% and may be voodoo.

Any ideas?

You should not have any problems.

Computer does not recognize my canon eos rebel xti 400D


You can download the driver aand reinstall it from this link: http://www.nodevice.com/driver/EOS_400D/get37008.html Make sure your existing Canon software, if any, is removed before installing the new driver. If this doesn't work you can always purchase a card reader and extract your photos directly from the memory card.

Canon 400D, Auto setting, images too dark


Automatic settings are not useful in all conditions. The built in flash is not good over 20 ft. Under low light conditions, an external flash is better option, but it costs additional too. Remember that shooting under low light conditions is always a difficult task. By the way, I don't know about such common problem in Canon XTi

??? These cameras take standard CF cards (and store images in standard JGP format) that can be 'read' directly by PC's with a multi-media card slot.

If your PC does not have a card slot, you can buy a USB CF Card Reader/Writer for a few dollars ..

PS always reformat the CF cards in the Camera not the PC ..

Missing Photos Canon Rebel XTi


You can actually still keep taking photos with your camera without loosing the images. The XTi will never delete the images off a card unless you press the trashcan key and tell it to "delete all".

It's always good practice in these situations to have a memory card reader handy. You can pick up a compact flash reader for your XTi for about $14 at BestBuy or many other retaillers.

But to answer your question: Use the ZoomBrowser EX software that came with the camera. If your Picasa is set to automatically connect and download every time the camera is connected - temporarily disable it. That way it wont inturrupt Canon's software (which I prefer).
