The camera goes to "BULB" without any user action?
"BULB" is an option to manage the exposure time. The shutter will be open while you holding down the shutter button. So you can control the time,

Where is the SCN mode on a canon rebel xsi


There are some scene modes available in the Basic Zone. Simply turn the mode dial on the top of the camera to the desired mode.
Full details are in the "Basic Shooting and Image Playback" section of the manual (beginning on page 43 in my copy). If you need a copy of the manual, you may download one here.

My camera just decides what shutter speed it wants to take the photo at .....it will be 1/125 then all of a sudden be 1/30 and i need fast pictures for my motocross how do i have a constant shutter speed


Unfortunately you can't. More sophisticated cameras will let you control more facets of your photography. With a point&shoot camera about all you can is point and shoot, and let the camera make its decisions.

I have a Canon Rebel XSi. I'm trying to shoot a photo of my sleeping 2 year old, so the light is obviously low. I have the cameral on manual mode. I used the light meter to obtain my exposure, but when I...


The blinking light may be telling you the picture you want is out of the camera's range. You may have to increase the ISO, shoot at a slower shutter speed, or open the lens aperture.

Shutter stays open


According to what you say, it seems that you selected B (Bulb) as shutter speed (and MANUAL mode).

First, check whether you are on MANUAL mode ("M"); then, check your shutter speed. If it's really in "bulb" mode, all you have to do is dialing the speed button down to figures that match your subject's light conditions and your other preferences involved in the exposure (ISO, lens apperture).

How to chk if IS is working on Canon EF-S 18-55


Take handheld pictures at a slow shutter speed (1/8 to 1/30, say) with the IS switched on and off. Shoot the same subject under the same conditions, zoomed in all the way to 55mm. Then look at them on your computer, zoom in to 100%, and see if they look the same.

Make sure you compare the pics at the same shutter speed. The EXIF info will show the shutter speed and the (alleged) IS status.

You can also try listening to the lens, but that's not as reliable since it may indicate the lens trying but not succeeding.

In manual mode cannot set shutter speed to


The "--" is the equivalent of the bulb setting with the remote control. The first press of the button opens the shutter and starts the exposure. Another press of the button closes the shutter and ends the exposure. This is so you don't have to hold the button down and risk a bird flying through the beam (and to conserve battery power).

Shutter speed


When you set the camera to "Full Manual" mode, you should be able to dial in your shutter speeds, for most film cameras, including the N55 30 Seconds is the slowest shutter speed. If your camera features a "Bulb" mode, then the shutter stays open as long as you are holding down the shutter release button.

Camera shake


If your lens is equipped with a stabiliser, ensure it is switched on. In darker conditions, try increasing the ISO to get faster shutter speeds. Be aware that shooting at the telephoto end greatly increases your chance of camera shake too.
