Why wont the T1i let you use the lcd lens to view what you are shooting? crazy...that nice big screen and you have to look in that tiny viewfinder...very aggrivating. i read it has that option in the live...


I'll give your the diagrams to select the live view feature but for sports, it's not going to work unless you want blurry action shots. Also you can shoot in the basic zones you need to be in the creative zones to have the LCD even come on in Live View.

Here are the diagrams

Have some fun with it but I think you will return to that "tiny viewfinder" there is a reason why the pro's use the viewfinder

Canon eos rebel xsi screen is black when taking a picture but shows picture afterwards..Menu works also so screen works but just black when trying to take a pic..


Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.

Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.

I don't have live feed through my viewfinder....this is a new camera for me. lol


You first have to enable it in the menus, under the second wrench icon, Live View Settings, On. It only works in the creative modes, Tv, Av, M, and P. Then press the enter button on the selector dial.

I have new Canon 500d but i can't work out the LCD screen to display my live view to shoot. The screen displays only the Menu or the Shooting Settings Display. i have the same problems with Rina, Thanks...


I wish you know that you need to press LIVEVIEW button marked red Dot to enter live view mode.
Further more it will work in P,T,A,M modes and video camera modes only.Still it does not show live view the camera has a fault.
If this has solved it don't forget to rate me.
