Question about Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

1 Answer

My canon xsi digital camera is not functioning the way it should.

My canon xsi digital camera is not functioning properly in the drive mode. It shoots two frames quite quickly then jams and shoots at a rate of approximately 1 frame per second. What could be the cause? It used to shoot approximately 3 frames per second.

This is normal for an XSi. What might be causing this:
-Picture setting producing huge picture files (RAW vs JPEG) -SD card not of same class, try using a faster card, such as a Class 6 or 10

Canon eos rebel xsi screen is black when taking a picture but shows picture afterwards..Menu works also so screen works but just black when trying to take a pic..


Set the shooting mode to a Creative Zone mode. Press MENU to enter the menu. Under the Setup tab, select [Live View function settings] then press SET. Select [Live View shoot] and press SET. Select [Enable] and press SET. Press MENU to exit the menu. Press SET. The image should now appear on the LCD instead of through the viewfinder.

Refer to "Live View Shooting," Chapter 5 in the manual for more details and the limitations of the LiveView mode.

How do I switch from the view finder to the lcd monitor on my canon rebel xsi


You must be in P, Tv, Av, M, or the A-DEP modes.

Enable Live View in the camera’s Menu.
On the second set-up menu screen go to
“Live View function settings” then "Live View Shoot"-> enable.
After this all you need to do is press the Set button.

No matter what button I push on the Rebel XS EOS, I gat the message ''This function is not selectable in the current shooting mode''


What shooting mode are you in? In manual, the camera leaves most everything to you. In full auto, the camera does everything. Try some of the other modes to see if they offer the functions you want.

Camera xsi rebel 12.5 megapixel won't focus with


Most entry level SLR cameras will struggle to focus in low light, especially with the kit lens. By rights the flash should popup and emit a flash pulse to help focus. This is called focus assist. You might have to consult the manual to check if this function is turned on or not.
