Question about Canon Cameras

3 Answers

Using my Canon XSi/450D, I'm interested in doing High Dynamic Range photography. But I can't discover how to make the automated shutter-speed range multi-shot (3 for the 450D) AEB work. I've gone into the menu and select and change the AEB range ( -2V) and pressed "set." Working from the "AV" in creative mode, I then set up my first shot with focus and ISO, and shoot. Now what? When I press the shoot button, an ordinary photo is captured, and if I continue to press the button additional captures result with the same settings as the first one. Goodbye to bracketing. Must be some little thing I'm missing - hope you can help. Thanks, Robert

    With the XSi/450D, attempting to create HDR photos, which require an automatic exposure bracketing (AEB) function to fire off three shots at some stepped series such as -2EV, 0EV, +2EV. The shot should be focused, framed, etc. and then the three-shot bracketing series would be triggered.

    I can't figure out how to trigger the bracketing shots so they're automatic-fire, and more important reset the exposure (shutter) setting each time to accomplish the bracket.

    Thanks, Robert Wilkinson

Why is my canon xsi suddenly not auto focusing?


Try removing the lens with the camera off and re-mounting it. Before doing so, check to make sure the contacts on the lens and camera body are clean and not damaged. If that doesn't help try gently pressing on the front of the lens (not the glass) while pushing the shutter release button half way down and if it works then you've got a poor fit between the lens and camera body.

Top 5 Tips to Ensure Great Smartphone Photography


You probably don't carry your fancy-pants DSLR camera with you all the time, but your smartphone--along with its built-in camera--is in your pocket everywhere you go. That's why these days the most popular camera used to upload photos to Flickr isn't a camera at all, but the iPhone.<br /> The challenge, of course, is getting great-looking photos from a gadget primarily designed for chatting. If you keep the following top 5 tips in mind, you can take some pretty sharp pictures with either an iPhone or an Android phone. Here is what you need to know (click all photos to enlarge).<br /> <img src="M900page_11-1.jpg" /><br /> 1. Know when the shutter clicks: If the shutter lags, you'll need to account for that. Some phones have a surprising delay after you press the shutter release. And if the shutter release is on a touchscreen (as it is on the Apple iPhone), the shutter probably trips after you lift your finger, not when you press down. Either way, hold the camera steady while the picture is being exposed. And don't jab at the screen, or the shake will blur your photo.<br />2. Widen the dynamic range: Some phones (such as the iPhone 4 and Windows Phone 7 handsets, to name a few), provide a High Dynamic Range mode that captures an impressive amount of detail and a range of tones and colors in a single exposure.<br />If your phone has a High Dynamic Range option, learn to use it.The effect is similar to the way HDR software can combine multiple photos to create one rich, dynamic photo. If you have an HDR option (it might also be called Wide Dynamic Range, or some similar variation), try it instead of the flash when faced with tricky lighting.<br />3. Use the flash to reveal daytime details: It's counterintuitive, but in daylight, a fill flash can be your secret weapon. It provides a burst to reduce the shadows that bright sunlight causes. Although the flash won't be powerful enough to fill every shadow, if you're close enough to your subject, it can provide pleasant, even lighting on your subject's face. Of course, the tiny flash on most cameras works only at very close range, so don't expect it to help unless you're within a few feet of your subject.<br />4. Start the camera faster: Some phones make it so hard to get to the camera that you might think they're, well, camera-shy--which could mean losing out on many a great photo opportunity. If you have a smartphone and the operating system allows it, move the camera app to a more convenient location.<br />Make sure you can access your camera quickly.On the iPhone, for example, ensure that the camera app is on the first screen, or put it in the quick-access area at the bottom of the screen. Some phones even let you reassign buttons to launch the camera.<br />5. Let the sun shine in: Your phone can handle a lot of situations with aplomb, but it can't shoot every scene you encounter. The teeny image sensor craves light, and does best outdoors, in daylight. For the best exposures, follow the same advice that photographers have kept in mind for decades:<br /> Let sunlight help your photography.Try to put the sun behind you or over one of your shoulders. Avoid shooting directly into the sun, or you'll radically underexpose your subject. If you're shooting indoors, put your back to the window and turn on the lights.<br />About author:<br /> Mattry, as an amateur of photography, also interested in multimedia software.

Night Photography


Wait until the sun goes down.

In many ways night photography is just like day photography, except there's less light. With less light, you need a slower shutter speed, a wider aperture, a faster ISO, or a combination of all three. Or else you need to add light.

Just like day photography, the best camera settings (and other things) depend on what you want the photograph to say to the viewer.

You can add light by using the flash, car headlights, etc. The flash doesn't have much range; if you're sitting in the stands at a night sporting event your flash isn't going to affect any pictures you take of the action on the field. Another effect of the short range is that if you take a flash picture of a person at night, you're likely to have an almost completely black background. If you want something of the background to show, use the Night Portrait mode (and a tripod).

If you want to take a picture of a night landscape (or the night sky, with star trails) then turn off the flash. Put the camera on a tripod or other steady support and use a slow shutter speed.

If you're taking a picture of the full moon, then it's not night photography at all. The full moon is just a big rock under a midday sun, so treat it as such.

How to replace cr2016 from 450d/XSi or 500D/Xt1


The other bloke doesn't know what he is talking about..this is plainly obvious.

Looks like the CR2016 is inside the battery compartment under a small cut-out plastic piece (on same side as hinge). Use a torch and you can see it under this plastic piece.

You either need to dissemble it to get access or break off this plastic cover to replace...or take it to canon.

Check whether there is anything obstructing the range sensor just above the rear LCD. The sensor could be thinking that your face is near, thus turning off the display. Also, you should be able to use the Disp button even in auto display mode, which might make the display not show anything by default.

That's a big lens and for sports photography you are going to need a lot of light to ensure you can use a fast shutter speed to capture the action. Sports mode may do too much for you and you might want to try switching to a more manual mode. Try switching to Tv mode which gives shutter speed priority. Set the shutter speed to something around 1/150 or higher (1/200) which should be fast enough to freeze the action. Make sure the ISO is set to 200 or 400 for best results and see how you get on. This should stop any action based blur which would leave you with focus problems if the pictures are still blurry.
