Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens
With the aperture less than 1/7, there are always some black spots on the pictures taken by my xti camera. It is a quite new camera which I bought last month. What should I do? Can it be solved by just cleaning the CCD? Please tell me the address of your service center in New York City where I can take my camera to and clean it.
If it is a brand new camera then I would suspect that the vertical resolution on the lens is messed up. This is a known issue with Canon lens (though I thought they fixed it). It doesn't affect the camera. You can confirm the issue by using another lens (friends' or just go to a store and try one there), if the dark spots disappear, then you will know.
You can send or if its near, take the lens to authorized Canon service center. In warranty, they should do it for free.

Why am I not able to look through the LCD screen to see a picture that I want to take instead of looking through the view finder.

Cleaning the lens and CMOS (Canon uses CMOS instead of CCD sensors) would be the first thing I would do. Before an expensive cleaning (usually at least $60) try getting a blower and blowing off the lens and sensor (find the sensor cleaning thing in the yellow section of the cameras menu, select it, the mirror will lock up, take off the lens, blow on the sensor with the blower)
For the lens, besides the blower, use a microfiber cloth on it.
If the problem persists, almost any camera store will clean cameras. Try Ritz cameras, here is a list of their stores in NY city.
