    50% of time I have this problem. Want to know if the problem is from the body or lens.

    When I push the shutter button my Rebel XT will focus and do everything it is made to do. When I press it all the way the shutter does not work. I have cleaned the contacts and changed lenses.

Why are my photos blurry


I would think that you are not focusing your camera before fully depressing the shutter button Start by depressing your shutter button very lightly until you see the outline of a small square in the middle of the view finder . At that point you are in focus . Now fully depress the shutter button and take your picture . You must do this prior to taking each photo . Remember to just depress the shutter button about half way to focus your picture image , before pressing it fully . I hope this is of some help to you.

When I insert the film, it won't catch, therefore I keep winding until the roll is done (also, the shutter release button won't depress). What does this mean? Is there a way to fix it?


When you say 'vintage', are we talking 35mm or roll film ? If 35mm, looks as if the interlock between shutter release and wind-on spool needs adjusting, but no idea if this is possible.

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).

When operating any digital camera, the camera tries to capture the best focus and exposure for that particular scene. By pressing the shutter button half-way down, the focus and exposure is being set. There will be a green circle on the upper left hand corner of the screen, then your camera is ready to take the picture. Slowly depress the shutter the rest of the way down to take the picture.

You are correct, there is a setting. Press Monitor, then Menu to get to the menu; go to the thitd menu option (looks like a pencil), select option 4 (AF Activation) and set it to ON (Shutter/AF ON). This will solve your problem.

Is there a way that I could PAUSE and CONTINUE?


The camera does not have a pause feature when shooting movie clips. You depress the shutter button to start the movie and then depress the shutter button to stop the movie.

According to the manual, this indicates either (1) the battery is low and needs to be replaced, or (2) the internal self test is failing when the shutter button is depressed half-way. For the latter condition, they recommend removing the battery completely, then reinserting and pressing the battery check button (second button down under the 'palm' door).

If you still get the blinking 'bc', it indicates the camera needs service.

Shutter-release


After the focus is confirmed, the Shutter-release time lag for the DiMAGE E201 is approximately 0.4 second. If the shutter-release button is depressed in a quick motion without making any pause to confirm focus, approximately 1.9 second is necessary.
