Question about Canon Digital Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera with EF-S 17-85mm IS Lens

1 Answer

View screen on back

I have a Canon EOS Rebel XT camera. When you turn the camera on the screen on the back of the camera does not show what the view finder is seeing, it shows a white screen that gives the battery display, the iso on auto and the camera on auto etc. I can't figure out how to go back to the screen that shows my potential picture. Help PLEASE!

The XT does not have a "live view" feature. You have to use the viewfinder.
The LCD is strictly for data and picture viewing.

Turn on preview


The Digital Rebel XT operates as SLRs have operated for half a century. You view through the viewfinder to take a picture. Only the more recent dSLRs have a Live View capability which lets you use the screen on the back instead of the viewfinder.

Display only works after the shot canon eos rebel xt


The XT does not have a live view capability. It works as SLRs have worked for half a century: you frame the picture through the viewfinder and click the shutter.

Or are you saying that you can't see the menu on the display?

How do i swap from eye view to screen for picture taking where is the button located to swap from one view to the other i dont have the manual cannon eos rebel xt


There is no such button. The Rebel XT operates as SLRs have operated for half a century: you compose through the viewfinder, the mirror flips up when you press the shutter button, etc.

You can download a manual from http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=ModelFeaturesTabAct&fcategoryid=215&modelid=11209#DownloadDetailAct

How can you use the LCD screen in lieu of looking through the view finder to take pictures. This is for a Canon EOS Rebel XT.


Im afraid your camera does not have live view so therefore you will have to use the viewfinder to take your images and view them back on the lcd screen.
