How do you turn on the LED Display before shooting a picture? Or is this even possible on the Canon EOS 20D?

    Are you refering to the large LCD display at the back of the camera or the small display at the top of the camera? The small display will turn on when you depress the shutter release half way when you are preparing to take the picture. I have this camera so I can try various things to help you out if you provide more info. Cheers Tony

Check your owner's manual to see if your camera is capable of "live view".

Rear lcd screen black in shooting mode but works fine in playback


Solved the problem by going to the Canon product support site. It seems that there is no problem at all. The way the camera is designed is the problem. To be able to use the rear display lcd as a view finder, the camera needs to be able to lift the mirror to allow the sensors to pick up the image and display it on the screen. The 20D does not have this abilitiy. Apparently some later models do allow you to raise the mirror. It was this feature on those models that led me to believe that the 20D should do this too.

I have a canon eos 20D and the camera don`t accept 2, 4, 8 GB CF i download the last actualization and the problam is the same can you help me with this problam thanks


I have a Canon 20D in my fleet and have used 1 gig card in it almost exclusively however I did use a 2gig and a 4gig when shooting RAW + jpg. I would think that you haven't formatted the card for the camera even if it's a new card and has never been used you need to format the card to the camera you are going to use it in.

Canon EOS 20D Digital zoom failed


Hi there,
The autofocus mechanism on some lenses can be damaged if you manually focus while the camera is attempting to autofocus. Basically, you would be working against the motor and gears. 
There is no need to download software before using the camera, however, I would suggest going to Canon's website and downloading the firmware upgrades for it. Here's the link:

Hope this helps!

EOs 20D digital camera


Prior to models made in 2007 or later, no SLR camera (film or digital) was able to let you compose the picture before shooting it other than through the optical viewfinder. SLRs are different in this respect from compact digital cameras. You will only be able to review your pictures on the LCD after they are taken.

"busy" Error


check your firmware version and update if necessary. Usually you get the "busy" message when your camera is writing to the card and it's possible the card isn't quite right - a format should fix it. Alternatately you might try a different CF card to see if the problem goes away. Good luck!
