None of old/generic flashes will do. The XT camera is designed to recognize brand flashes and give a "Trought the Lens" light measurement in order to adjust flash output. It is possible to shot in manual mode if you are acquaint with this mode. Another issue is that generic flashes triggers in a higher voltage than the "designed for digital" what is potencially dangerous to the camera circuit.

Windows 7 will not recognize my Canon Rebel xt camera, but easily accepts the Canon PowerShot Point and shoot as well as the Fuji Film Fine Pix camera. The memory disk for the xt is a Compact Flash Disk...

Canon did not produce Win 7 software for some of the older Canon eos models.
To overcome this problem Open the menu, go to the
Tools/setting2 sub menu (this is the sub menu with a spanner symbol with an up-pointing arrow and a 2) scroll down to 'Communication' line and press the 'set' button,two options will be shown, 'PC Connection' and 'Print/PTP', using the up/down buttons select 'Print/PTP', press the 'set' button to confirm the selection. The computer will now see the camera as an external storage device and the card can be seen in explorer.

Haven't used my Canon rebel xt for awhile but tried today and it will not turn on. Purchased new CR2016 battery and fully charged the other battery. Has not been dropped or misused. Please help


It is possible if you haven't used the camera for a while that the contacts inside the battery compartment need to be cleaned. This can be done with a q-tip and some alcohol.

Thank you.

I was wondering if lenses from a Canon 35mm camera will work with this camera?

When choosing a lens for your Digital Rebel XT, look for EF or EF-S on the lens. Film lenses with the EF designation will work on your digital camera, but AF or older lenses will not fit. Trying to force them on may damage your camera.
When using a film lens on a digital camera, there will be a 1.6x conversion factor. This means that a 50mm lens will be closer to a 70mm lens in reality.

Sounds like loose part in Canon 350D / Rebel XT

This is nothing to worry about. The sound is made by the metal linkage inside the flash housing. Pop up the flash and touch the linkage with your fingers. You will see there is a little movement. This movement is enough to make the sound you hear.

I have the same problem. So far I've contacted Sigma (I believe this is the company that manufacturers the Quantaray lens for Ritz) and they requested I send them a photo of the lens. I just googled sigma lens to find sigma support. I will update you all with any response I may get.
