Daytime Photos A Little Dark In Auto Mode

I just got my Canon Rebel XTI...upgraded from the 6.5 MP. When taking photos in the action (motion) mode, on a sunny day, the photos seem to come out darker than they should. Just wondering if there's a preset that isn;t working right or if there's some way I have to adjust settings?

If you are in full auto the camera is going to meter to the brightest point. If your subject is in the sun you should be ok but if your subject is shaded then they will come out dark becouse the camera is metering for the brighter background. You might try seting your camera in AV or TV mode and then set your camera to a single AF point. This will let you camera meter to just your subject and not the background. Youe could also try using a flash fill to balance out the light.

No date stamp on photos on Canon XTi camera


Most Canons don't seem to be able to embed the date on photos unless the resolution is set to "postcard mode", which is 1600 by something pixels. Set to that resolution, and then try to set the date mark feature (it will be greyed out when the resolution is not set to a compatible mode).

Resolution


The XTi allow to set different image size for manual modes an for AUTO modes. So you can set a Large size superfine for auto and RAW type for manual modes. So check the size settings under manual and automatic modes.

However, the "smal" resolution (1936x1288 px) on XTi will allow you to print good 5x7 photos.

Canon Rebel XTI W/stabilizer lens


Hello bbridges,
Wow, you asked a REALLY open ended question. But here is a good starting point for Manual mode shooting.
Daytime (Full Sunlight) ISO: 100 (or 200-400 to capture fast motion)
F-Stop: Depends on how much depth of field (DOF) you want The lower the number, the blurrier the background. The higher the number, the more everything in the frame is in focus. Shutter Speed: Depends how much motion blur you want. The higher the number, the less blur you get.


Nighttime (Track Lights) ISO: 800-1600 F-stop: Again, depends on how much DOF you want Shutter Speed: Depends how much motion blur you want. The higher the number, the less blur you get.

Remember when you are panning to capture something in motion, keep on tracking (moving with the subject) even after you have released the shutter. It will help your stability reduce the chances of unintentional blurring.
My suggestion is to go to dpreview.com or stevesdigicams.com and do some rooting around in the forums. They both offer friendly and helpful advice. Also, check out webphotoschool.com
Better yet, experiment with your camera. Pick a time of day and take a series of photos of the same thing, and only change one setting at a time. Make note of what photo number you're on, and what setting you changed (and what it is). Then, when you look at the photos on your computer, match the photo numbers up with the chart you've made, and you'll begin to see a pattern. This is one of the faster ways to learn by trial-and-error. And, this method sure beats randomly shooting and just spinning the dials hoping to get something good. Try to predict the outcome of the shot before you shoot it. Ask yourself what the photo should look like (light? dark? just right? everything in focus, or just the subject?)
As for your lens, check to make sure the Auto Focus settings in your camera menu as well as on the camera are set correctly. And if all else fails, turn off the camera, remove the battery, remove the lens (in as dust-free environment as possible), and then put the lens back on, the battery back in, and turn the camera on again.
Happy shooting, and hope this helps!

Canon rebel xti focus issues


I think it might be a lens issue.
make sure you change the macro option. the macro must be activated if you are taking a picture of something which is close to the camera. if it's not activated, the picture will not be focused.
The same will happen if the item is far and the macro is ON.

Missing Photos Canon Rebel XTi


You can actually still keep taking photos with your camera without loosing the images. The XTi will never delete the images off a card unless you press the trashcan key and tell it to "delete all".

It's always good practice in these situations to have a memory card reader handy. You can pick up a compact flash reader for your XTi for about $14 at BestBuy or many other retaillers.

But to answer your question: Use the ZoomBrowser EX software that came with the camera. If your Picasa is set to automatically connect and download every time the camera is connected - temporarily disable it. That way it wont inturrupt Canon's software (which I prefer).

New Canon Rebel xti photos won't print on my Epson Photo R320


Re-install the printer after downloading the latest driver from Epson. It is quite likely that the Canon software has over written the colour profile for the Epson.
