Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTI Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Rebel XTi has what seems to be a stuck shutter button? The shutter will fire w/o the lens on but will not fire once I put my 50mm back on. I recently did a sensor cleaning. Could that have something to do with it?

Will it fire if you take the lens off AF and set it on M? If so then your release switch may be bad - I see a lot of that. Also there is a screw that comes loose that may be shorting out the auto-focus sensor flex connector. The bottom right screw on the back circuit board always comes loose/out on XT and XTi cameras.

SOURCE: shooting in low light with a canon rebel xt

Hello parr_alp,
Please keep in mind that when shooting in low light, you will ALWAYS get some amount of blur when you are hand holding the camera unless you use a flash. The only way to increase your shutter speed is to crank up your ISO setting to 800, 1200, 1600, etc. If there is no tripod handy, brace yourself against a stationary object and remember to keep your elbows tucked down near your body when shooting (no sense in holding up your arms, too).
There is no way to increase the ISO limits of your camera while maintaining quality of your images. And once again, you will ALWAYS get a certain amount of blur when hand holding the camera. 
The external flash not firing is an entirely separate issue. This could have to do with your metering, a bad flash, bad connection in the hot shoe, what shooting mode you're in — the possibilities are numerous. The next time your flash doesn't work, write down all the settings of your camera and keep track of them (i.e. shooting mode, metering mode, flash settings, current lighting situations, etc.) You may start to notice a pattern and perhaps we can help you here.
Anyway, happy shooting, and if this response was helpful, please rate it! Thank you!
Jeff

Cannon rebel DS6041 shutter problem


You need to determine what is preventing the shutter from opening/closing. Set to "B" mode and with the lens OFF, press shutter button but DO NOT RELEASE just yet. Not any peculiar motions (grabbing, skipping, folding etc). The curtain may well be out of alignment, or there may be a lose part which is grabbing hold of another component.

If you do find the culprit, and it can be fixed on the spot - do it. Technicians can charge >$65 just to open the thing. Then you have to wait at least a week to get it BACK!

How to release a stuck sutter on canon 400d


Wow, four days ago.

I would think that the camera has dropped the shutter by now.

There is a mode in the camera that holds the mirror up out of the way for sensor cleaning but this is defaulted as soon as the power is shut off and then turned back on again.

Or the camera was set in manual mode "Bulb" and is waiting for the next command from the photographer to "drop" the shutter "takes a second press of the shutter button.

The lens may be loose (unlocked) and giving a bad command to the camera.

The Canon 40D has a shutter capable of 60,000 actuation so if you are close to this I'd say the shutter has been shot out of it.

Also sometimes the shutter release button sticks and gives the feeling or appearance of a stuck shutter.

Shutter switch also known as a release button have been an issue sometimes where dirt and oil from a person hands get down into the button.

To release shut the camera off, take the battery out, remove and reinstall the lens, shift the taking mode to "P" program or full automatic green box.

All the pics from my digital canon xti come out black. its not the ISO and It the same when its on the set settings. what else could it be?


Remove the lens and fire off a couple of shots while watching the inside of the camera. Does the mirror flip out of the way? Does the shutter open and close?

Shutter release delay


I have same problem with my Rebel XTI and asked the problem to Canon USA. Here is the answer of Canon USA and it seems worked with my camera.

Resetting the camera back to default standards may solve the problem.
Please put the camera in AF mode instead of MF. In order to reset the camera back to default standards, we recommend you perform the following
steps:

1. Turn the camera ON in the P (Program) Mode.

2. Press the MENU button.

3. Scroll over to the Tools2 menu, then scroll down to Clear all settings.

4. Highlight the Clear all settings option and press the SET button.

5. Highlight the OK option and press the SET button.

At this point, the camera should be reset back to factory standards.
Also, try a different lens. If the camera still does not work, then the camera will need to be serviced.

Hoping to help finding a way to solve your problem.

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.

Take picture 3/4 of frame is black


Take the lens off the camera and look through the lens. Is there anything obstructing the light?
Now have a look inside the camera body. Same thing, anything there that looks like it shouldn't be? If look up into the cavity you should be able to see the focussing scren clearly - any obstructions there?
Finally, with the lens off, switch on the camera and go through the menu until you find the sensor cleaning option. Select this. The internal shutter will open and allow you to see the CCD sensor. Have a look and make sure it is also free from obstruction.
You will need to switch the camera off to release the shutter.
Put everything back together and check the pictures again.
If still no joy, then it sounds like the CCD sensor is faulty and the camera needs a repair from an authorised Canon repair centre.

Flash not firing properly


Could be the metering mode you are in. Could be the subject is too far away. Could be ISO is set wrong. Could be the lens aperture can't open up enough. Could be the exposure compensation isn't set correctly. Could be FE Lock is still on and the composition has changed. Does the <flash> icon continue to blink? Then you are too far away.

Indoor photography


If you're on a budget, the 50mm f/1.8 II is a great deal, $100ish, f/1.8 is great for low light.

If you have a bit more cash, the 50mm f/1.4 has better build quality (the 1.8 is all plastic) and much better autofocusing (its USM so its fast and quiet, as well as more reliable) and its also slightly sharper.

If you want a zoom, from canon theres the 17-55 f/2.8, which has image stabilizer and USM focusing.
Also, the 24-70mm f/2.8L, which has USM, and since its an L lens, fantastic optical quality. However, it will run you over a thousand most likely.

From sigma, theres several zoom options, the 28-70mm F2.8 EX DG, 24-70mm F2.8 EX DG MACRO, and 24-60mm F2.8 EX DG. All under $800 or so.
