Question about Canon EOS 450D EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera with 1785mm and 70300mm lenses

1 Answer

STUPID ME .....I cleared the Camera Settings, now can't download pics.

HOW CAN I BE SO STUPID. I am learning my "new" Canon Rebel XSi. I bought it slightly used, and apparently the previous owner had the settings right. I played on my camera all day last week learning new settings, changing lots of preferences, and thought I'd like to take it back to "factory" because I had changed so much. And STUPID ME, I went to the "Custom Functions" menu and clicked "clear settings". I knew immediately I'd made a big mistake. Even the background colors on the menu screens changed to grey. So, I worked another day getting most of the every day settings back. BUT, when I brought this camera home, I was able to just insert the USB cable and it would automatically download my pictures. Now, it won't. It says "USB devise unrecognized". It says that on all of our computers, not just this one. So, it's something I need to reset on the camera. Not the software. Everything else is the same - just the camera has changed. I CANNOT find any setting to help me allow the USB to be recognized. PLEASE HELP ANYONE....I'm so upset.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.


The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.


Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.

    Thank you! And yes, that is indeed good advise. It wasn't until this happened that I started downloading my pictures that way. Two of our PC's have card readers, so that was not a problem. And yes, I can see that is an efficient way to do it. But...........I hate solving a problem with just a "fix". I'm a go to the source kind of girl. I wish I knew what preference I turned off on my camera to stop the auto download with the USB cable............sigh!! Thank you!

SOURCE: Camera timer factor; wish to clear settings

Make sure you have the dial set on 'P' not green suare, then when you go to Clear settings, go up to the clear all cameras ettings, and that will res\et camera for you. Failing that, just turn the delay timmer off with the circular button 2nd from top, LHS of the LCD.

I would buy a multiple card reader or install one in your desktop computer and just download straight from the card instead of camera. This usually works faster anyway. Rich

Canon eos rebel xsi has black screen while taking pics.It shows the pic afterwards and shows the menu so the screen works but shows black screen while taking a pic


I think it is because the camera has a sensor. The screen turns off so as not to distract you or let light from the screen bother you while taking a shot. You can check this in the manual.

When i take pictures inside with my Canon eos Rebel xsi the pictures are very dark and I have tried all settings is it the camera or the lens?


Clear the custom functions and clear the camera settings in the main menu set the camera to P mode to get there! If you want to know if it is the lens. Put the camera in P mode and set the iso to 1600 and press the button on the bottom left side of the camera and listen to the lens diaphragm you should hear it moving, point the camera somewhere dark. Or set the camera to AV mode put the iso to 100 and turn the dial behind the shutter release switch all the way to the right and take a pic pointed towards a light source if the camera goes error 99 then it is the lens diaphragm! When I test a camera I set it to P mode and the iso to 400 and use the center focusing light and take four pics, one with the flash and one without close up and two as far away as possible one with the flash and one without and then compare the pics! Are you using the 18-55 mm is lens that came with the camera or a different one!

My new eos rebel xsi won't let me set it on portrait; instead it sets on landscape for both portrait and landscape


To take a picture in portrait mode, you just have to turn the camera 90 degrees. When you view the pics, the camera will automatically make the picture upright for viewing but it will still be a portrait.
