I just purchased the Tamron 18-270 lens. When I take photos with the flash on, I get like a dark half-circle shadow either at the bottom or to the side of the photos. What could be causing this?


Lens is to long for the internal flash. Try an external one, it's position is more away from the center of the camera. Normally this should'nt happen, may be that the internal reflector of your flash is disorted.
Try to get a cheap 430 EX, more power, better light and with an radio controller usable as an unleashed flash. You'll get better pictures with flash a little bit far away from the camera angle.

Reset the camera to factory settings.

If still you have the problem, use a different se of lens.

It seems the iris is not working properly in the lens.

Try in clean the lens and the camera contacts too.

Canon speedlite 430 EZ does not match with canon 400 D digital camera how to use the same flash with 400 D.


You can't. The metering systems are incompatable. You must use the EX range with the 400D, such as 430EX or 580EX (versions I or II)

Dark pictures using flash


You could try increasing the exposure level (press AV+/- while rotating the selector wheel to the right) but this will increase the time the shutter is open and increase the possibility of picture blur. Only other thing to do when shooting indoors is to change to a high ISO - 1600 for instance. This reduces the time the shutter is open so working together with the first suggestion you may not notice any difference!

If still too dark, you need a faster lens - you can pickup a 50mm f/1.8 lens quite cheap - this is an excellent indoor lens as the low F number means it lets in lots of light. The fixed focal length means you will have to move around to frame the shot, but they are indispensible for indoor work and a lot cheaper than a f2.8 zoom.

Canon EOS 400D kit lens problem...


It would be very difficult and not recommended to take appart a lens unless you can easily spot set screws around the area that you want to remove. One thing I would try is to lightly push on the broken off edges back and forth to set them up straight in as much a circular orientation as possible. Sometimes when a piece of any ring breaks off the remaining edges are facing inward or upward depending on direction of impact that caused it, and that way they rub against the encapsulating material as the ring turns.

Won't Work As Slave With Canon EOS 400D


Speedlites with the suffix "EZ" are never compatible with the digital EOS line-up. All models that do work are named "EX" (420, 430, 550, 580EX et al.)
