Question about Canon EOS 550D Rebel T2i Digital Camera

Camera behaves as bulb even when on 1/100

My 550d behaves like it's on 'bulb' when the sutter speed is set to a faster speed, such as 1/80. note that it happens when shooting from the viewfinder` when shooting in live mode everything works properly.

Minolta XG-A can work in full manual mode. The lowest shutter speed is 1 second and it had Bulb mode where the shutter is open as long as you press the button.

For my trip to Indonesia for a month I thought of buying two Sanddisk SDHC 8GB Exreme Pro UHS-1 cards. I have a Panasonic LX2 camera, what is the max memorycard speed (class) the camera can take? Is...


The camera can use any speed card. If you get a very slow card, the camera will slow down to it's speed. On the other hand, if you get a very fast card, the card will simply slow down to the camera's speed.

Faster cards tend to cost more than slower cards. For a camera like this, I wouldn't spend more money than for class 4 cards. Faster cards will not make the camera operate any faster.

Nixon S8100 fairly new camera, nice pics if the subject doesnt move but horrible pictures if object moves. Very blurry.


If everything in the picture is blurry, you are moving the camera when you press the shutter button. If only the subject is blurry and the background is clear the problem is too slow shutter speed. If this is cause by movement of the camera you must learn to SQUEESE the button while being sure you don't move the camera. It just takes a little practice. If this problem caused by a shutter speed that is too slow, it is remedied by increasing the ISO "film" speed. Even though you have no film, the camera has a "speed" setting that relates to that. The higher ISO value increases the camera's sensitivity to light and thus allows for faster shutter speed. Normally the ISO choices are 100, 200, 400, 800, 1600. Try using 400. The ISO setting is in one of your camera menus. 400 is fast enough to solve your problem in all but very fast movement of either the camera or subject. Using ISO above 400 will cause your pictures to look grainy and not as sharp. Use the highest speed only when absolutely necessary. Slower ISO numbers produce the finest grain and thus the sharpest pictures. It a trade off between ISO and shutter speed because the exposure is a combination of the ISO and shutter speed and lens opening. Each one effects the exposure by half or double.

Try replacing with the same bulb type as was failed. Flasher unit isusually reliant on resistence from the bulbs to what speed that side will flash at when powered.Some of these led type have less resistence and that equates to a faster flash speed.That is why when one bulb blows that side will flash faster or may even stay on without flashing.You could even swap the led to the other side( to confirm.Check with the bulb retailer to whether they have those bulbs with a higher rated resistence in led.If this vehicle has leds as standard,you may need to get the correct type from dealer. Hope this helps or get back with findings if it still has fault after replacing bulb.

The C1033 does NOT charge batteries. By plugging it into the computer you've actually drained the batteries faster since the camera has to spend juice communicating with the computer (even if only to say it has nothing to say). Put in a fresh set of batteries, and next time don't leave it connected to your computer.

Slow sutter speed/Lag in taking a picture


Use full auto mode or take out of Aperature priority, you may be shooting with a very small aperature setting and not know it. Also shutter priority can be set to a slow shutter speed.
