You should also check your display settings. I once let a friend use my camera to shoot a concert in a dark room, and he felt the LCD lit up the space around him too much and was too distracting, so he just lowered the brightness on the display screen- this threw me off for weeks! Check to make sure your brightness is normal, but if the pictures are transferring to your computer darker as well, you have another problem like what Fwayne alluded to.

First, to test be sure you are in Automatic mode. The dial should be on the Green Box setting. If its on other settings its in manual mode and can be set wrong. take a test picture in this mode, If its looking normal, then you were either int he wrong mode or your manual settings were off. But if they are still dark try your ISO settings, if too low a number it will result in dark images. For example ISO 100 is perfect for outdoor daylight, but ISO 400 is better indoors.

Next try the F stop settings and arppreture. If things improve, you have found the issue. This camera is professional grade so it will do exactly what its set to do even if the outcome is not what you want!

Whe all else fails use the menu and reset the camera to factory defaults.

I have a Canon XT Rebel, I just want to find out if you can see the picture you want to take on the display before taking it?


Sorry, the Rebel XT does not have the live view feature. This is a relatively new development in dSLRs and the XT missed the cutting edge.

Sorry if that wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

MY CANON EOS REBEL XT KEEPS SAYING ITS " BUSY" AFTER I TAKE A picture. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN & HOW DO I STOP IT?


it means your buffer is busy. the speed of your sd card determines how fast it writes the image to your card. "busy" means that it is writing the image info to your card. give it a second, and it clears itself. it's a normal process.

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.

I cannot use the lcd to take pics how do i use it


Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D does not offer Liveview shooting option which newer cameras offer. It does not have contrast based auto focus system like the ones you see on point and shoot cameras either. LCD is used to review pictures taken or navigate through the menu system. Besides, LCD on the back of the camera is so small and lack the details anyway. You are better off using the small viewfinder it offers.

Internal memory


To LanaJones123

I'm afraid the Canon Rebel does NOT have an internal memory for storing pictures. Any pictures taken without a card installed will be lost.

I have just got EOS 400 D CANON DIGITAL CAMERA.


If you're talking about seeing the image prior to taking the picture, like on most point and shoot digital cameras, that is NOT a function available on the Digital Rebel, XT, or XTI.
