Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Flash is delayed

I emailed yesterday. I need to take pictures at work tomorrow so I ask again: when I take a picture the camera emits a series of beeps, faster just before the flash goes off. Never did this before. I must have hit some kind of flash delay or something. Anyway it is about 10 seconds before flash goes off.

How can I fix this? asap - please

You have switched the self-timer on!

Press the button to the right of the displays just under the AV button. You need to ensure the display does not show the self-timer icon, which looks a bit like a second hand sweeping around a clock (with a dot at the 12 position).

That should do it.

Cheers
John

Shutting off flash


Yes, but not in the Auto mode, where the camera decides whether or not it needs the flash. Switch to the P mode, which works like Auto except you have control over the flash, exposure, and other factors. See pages 26 and 42 of this manual.

It seems the Red-eye reduction feature of the flash is ON. In this mode, the camera emits a pre-flash and then the actual flash discharges after a delay. Or it could be on Slow Sync. In this, the flash fires at the end of the exposure. Just go to Flash modes (the lightning-like icon) and if it is showing an eye-like icon or the word 'slow', change it to some other mode, probably the flash ON or OFF mode. Also, make sure that the batteries are fully charged.

If this solves the issue, please rate this solution.

Use Focus Lock.

Not applicable for the E-series digital cameras.
The shutter is delayed because of the additional flashes. In turn, make sure the picture's subjects wait for the additional flashes.

i suggest pointing the camera to an image which has more contrast as opposed to pointing it into a clear blue sky which has no clouds at all. the AF might have some trouble looking for cue to focus. go manual focusing and see the difference.

Bad Minolta Maxxum lens?


Oddly enough, the camera and lens are working just fine now - or at least they appear to be. I'll shoot some more when I have good lighting and 1-hour them tomorrow for the results.

Pictures taking too long, and a lightning bolt symbol appears


Hi, Could you please tell us what camera model this is?
I believe you replaced with new fully charged batteries.
Try changing the memory card. Old defective memory card will delay between shots.
If it still doesnt work, try updating the firmware of the camera.
Hope it helps...

Delayed shutter


Here as in some other posts, you can try to RESET the firmware in the menus. Go through the menus and find where it says something like reset all.
What this does is to reset it back to factory settings.
Then set the options you like, and then try the camera again.

Check the diff. modes for the picture taking. See if the flash can be turned off.
