I have the same problem with my 450D, and I have eventually worked out it was the "High ISO speed noise reduction" setting enabled, If the 350D has that setting in the custom settings menu check that, some of the other noise reduction setting will have, I'm told the same effect.

Re: Busy signal comes up with continous shooting.
The busy signal is showing because you are taking photo's quicker than the camera can save the photo's to the SD card.
To reduce the risk of this happening, please do the following;-
Reduce the size of the image that the camera is shooting.
Investigate using a faster SD card. Some camera manufacturers stipulate the use of specific brands and models of SD cards as their cameras have been optimized for there use.
Ultimately, the Rebel XT is only designed as a hobbyists camera and not up to the high performance of professional cameras. Nevertheless it is a very good camera for its price.

The error is not in my book in connection with the flash. Normal this error only occurs when the buffer is filled when shooting continuously or when the camera is connected to a computer.
If the internal flash is switched on and you get busy, it could be the battery is low in voltage, and can't charge the capacitor in the flash or the flash is defect and can't reach the voltage needed to be fired.
If you did remove the battery and reinserted it (after charging if needed) and the error keeps coming back I think you have to contact the Canon service centre close to you.
Some cameras, especially point and shoot models, have to write the picture you just took to the cameras memory card or internal memory. The busy light comes on as this happens to let you know there will be a wait and that you shouldn't turn off your camera until it is done.
Take a look at your file settings. If your shooting RAW, or RAW and JPEG you cannot record as fast as just shooting JPEGS. This means you may have to "wait" until the camera writes all the data to the card.
Also, look at the writing "Speed" of your SD card. If you have a inexpensive memory storage card it may have a much sower write time than others. Really doe make a difference.
I had the same thing with my 105. I've changed the IS mode from "Continuous" to "Shoot only" and the hand with line through it icon with "Busy" has gone. Maddening how they don't mention it in the manual - Happy Christmas!
I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D.
Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not
possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or
re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after
the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a
language that is different from the actual language setting.

The capacitor in the flash circuitry needs to be charged to a before
the flash can be fired. This chargeing time is termed as flash recycle
time and duriing this window the camera wilkl show that it is
This is perfectly normal, the flash uses short burst of electricity that are stored in a large state capacitor. This has to be recharged after so many pictures. You can go as fast as the SD card will allow even if the flash is charging, simply close the flash and continue taking photos without it, no effect apart from loss of some illumination depending on the conditions.
1) You have a slow memory card. Borrow from someone one of newer fast SD cards and test it in your camera. Take your card to a store that sells cameras, and try shooting with their cameras to see if you get the same delay.
2) Slow camera. The only solution here is to update. Many camera review sites give timing how long it takes a camera to write an image to a card.
3) Camera settings. If you are shooting in low-light situation, camera takes longer shots. There should be a warning icon about this. Easy way to deal with this is to use a tripod, to put camera on something solid. Check for "Slow Synch" setting - set it to Off if you don't know what it is.
check your firmware version and update if necessary. Usually you get the "busy" message when your camera is writing to the card and it's possible the card isn't quite right - a format should fix it. Alternatately you might try a different CF card to see if the problem goes away. Good luck!
