Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Shadowy line across lower half of photo

I just got a new Canon Rebel XT and about 1/2 of the photos I take have a line with a shadow below it across the bottom part of the photo. Some of these are the exact angle and taken on the same settings as the photo before that did not have it. It only appears when I download the photos onto the computer and is not visible on the lcd screen. Anyone know how to avoid this?

Re: shadowy line across lower half of photo

This may be a censor dust issue. Get it checked through Canon service at the earliest.

My Canon Rebel XT is overexposing shots in the Auto and Program mode by 1 or 2 stops. How do I fix this or compensate for it?

You can go into "exposure compensation" and lower the setting as you desire. It's the button that's half-black/half-white with a plus and minus.

Blurred subject in middle of photo

I own Rebel XT and Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII lens with plastic mount and noticed many pictures with missed focus, either front or back focusing. Meaning objects slight forward or below the intended subject is in focus. I've sent my body and the lens to Canon for evaluation and thet adjusted my focus sensors on the body. I still have problems and there are many threads related to focusing on this camera with 50mm f1.8 that the sensors on this camera do not do so well with fast lens and prone to missed focus.
Test your camera's focusing ability with a book or magazine where you focus on just one specific line and see if it is truly in focus when you review the picture.

Odd black shadowy line across pictures.

Make sure your Camera Strap or Lens Cover is no laying across your lens.

Would have to know more of your problem.
It appears like you have either damage to the LCD or internal loose cables. Possibly internal damage could cause this as well.

Shadow across photo

Shadows, especially circular shadows, are pretty common with the pop-up flash. What you are seeing is actually the shadow cast by the end of the lens. This happens especially on wider angle shots.

The solution is to find a way to get the lens out of the way of the flash. You can get an external flash, like a 430ex or 580ex, which elevates the flash far above the lens. That is an expensive option so first you might try making a diffuser for your pop up flash, which softens the source of light and helps eliminate some shadows:
