If the camera is in Auto mode those items cannot be selected because the camera is already using factory default settings and they cannot be changed, If you press the Ok button and change to P mode then you will be able to access all of those menu settings and make any changes you wish to the camera settings.

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.

Accessing Continuous Mode


Some details first...
  • The continous icon looks like multiple papers stacked on top of each other (in contrast the normal icon for single shot is a square box with an S in it so you can get it back to normal)
  • The camera takes shots at 1.5 frames per second, or about three frames every two seconds for image size of 2272x1704.
  • The shutter-release button has to be held down
  • Continuous is not available in HI image quality
  • Shooting will slow when memory buffer fills.
Setting to continuous...
  • Put your camera in P, S, A, or M mode.
    • I suggest P mode, this is for Program mode and does everything as Auto does, but allows you to override settings (except Aperture and Shutter).
  • Press the Menu button
  • Access the Continuous menu
  • Select the Continuous menu option, again looks like layered papers.
Please rate as FixYa! ThankYa!
