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.

I try to focus and it tells me this function is not selectable in the current shooting mode


Yes there are two zones of selection on the mode dial. one is basic zone (in which you have potrait, landscape, closeup, sports, night portrait & flash off) these are fully automatic modes and the camera does every thing for you you cannot change the focus. you can zoom out and zoom in and when u see in the view finder the picture is blur. then press the shutter button halfway the camera automatically zooms in or out for the correct focal lenght. only in creative zone you can do it. like programe ae , shutter priority , aperture priority , manual exposure. Hope this solves your problem. Prashanth.

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.

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.

Flash won't open on Canon Rebel XSi? It has been working fine but yesterday I went to take a picture and the flash wouldn't open. It won't open on any setting and it won't open if I push the manual flash...


The openning flash button only works on non automatic shooting modes.
On creative zone (automatic options with predefined options) the flash will rise automatically, based on the current exposure conditions. On "Flash Off" mode won't rise the flash ever.
Let me know, please if it solve the problem
