Re: display

Here's some examples of how to do it on several cameras. The biggest problem would be acquiring a replacement screen at a reasonable price. Suggest getting it from a broken camera from ebay, but with a stated working LCD.

I need to mount the camer upside for filming. How do flip the recording image? What GoPro needs is a reversed box so you mount upside down.

Ugrade your camera to the latest firmware (file and instructions available on their website). Once you've done this you'll be able to set the camera in the menu to record the video upside down. This enables upside down mounting and your video will be the right way up.

Focusing screen information bar slanting

A scratch on the screen will not effect your photos in anyway, it will just be annoying to you at most. Its possible to hit the prism out of alignment but also very unlikely. If you had to **** it a little bit, its possible you may have moved the actual lcd.

The menus keep popping up when all I want to do is shoot photos. How can I better control the display menu on the viewfinder. I'll take a picture and then the display shows up. It ruins the spontaneity of...

Could you explain in a better way your problem?
The XSi don't show the menus on the viewfinder, it only shows on the back screen.
You can shut if of by hitting the "DISP" button just at the left side of the viewfinder.
You can also enable the screen to go ON or OFF, when you go close your face to the viewfinder, so the screen will be OFF when you get close the viewfinder, and ON when you move back your face
I'm trying to figure out how the menus can ruin a picture.

Let me know more about your problem.

I crushed the screen of my Canon Powershot SD450 camera. Pls. estimate cost of screen repair. Is it on the screen thats cracked cozi can still take photos but cant see them.

Many screen breaks happen to ruin the LCD from visibly displaying a picture. On some cameras, the screen is attached to the back plate of the camera and are very easy to replace with a new one. Some screens are attached to a video pc board and may ruin the board from displaying anything. Your best bet is to have it repaired professionally by one of our top repair providers and get an estimate first. I have repaired many good digital cameras with a LCD replacement, but I also had to purchase a broken used one for parts because new parts became to expensive to repair the one with a broken LCD. BTW: all digital cameras contain many PC boards and if you can still take pictures means the boards that control your lens, motors, CCD, and I/O boards are still intact and functional. Hope this helps - fotobean
