Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

2 Answers

Rebel XT - LCD monitor.

Hi,
When my Rebel XT was new, as I was focusing on a field, I could see the image on the LCD monitor. But now I can only see the field of focus through my viewfinder. The manual says the what you are looking at should appear on the monitor. Is there something wrong with my camera?? After the shot is taken however, the saved image appears on the monitor. Pease help, have I set something wrong in the cameras settings?

The camera is a Single Lens Reflex (SLR). It is not possible to use the LCD display as a viewfinder. See Canon's answer here: CanonUSA

The LCD monitor displays taken images but isn't operating as a viewfinder.


The XT does not have 'live view' - you can only use the LCD to view taken images

No picture on LCD monitor when camera (rebel xt) is turned on


I am not sure what is the problem. You say no"picture"..is the screen totally black? Even when you try to preview photos in your camera memory? If so there is a problem with the hardware, LCD screen battery, or some other part.

If you mean you only see numbers and photo setting information on the LCD, that is normal for this Rebel models. The picture only appears in the viewfinder. It does not have a "live view' function to switch the image from the viewfinder to the LCD while you are shooting, as later model have. I have such a model and it is very disappointing.

Canon rebel xt 1. image looks blury in eye


1. The viewfinder's diopter is probably out of focus (doesn't affect Auto Focus of photos). There's a dial and a +/- symbol next to the viewfinder. Turn the dial till you can see clearly through it. Alternative reason: The glass in the viewfinder is dirty/foggy. Use camera cleaning solution (a drop) on a cotton bud to clean it.

2. Malfunction needs Canon Service Centre to take a look at.

Hi,

It might be that it accidently change the display time of the picture or turned it off. There is a setting that you can change to display pictures. Check if that might be the problem.

I cannot use the lcd to take pics how do i use it


Canon EOS Rebel XT / 350D does not offer Liveview shooting option which newer cameras offer. It does not have contrast based auto focus system like the ones you see on point and shoot cameras either. LCD is used to review pictures taken or navigate through the menu system. Besides, LCD on the back of the camera is so small and lack the details anyway. You are better off using the small viewfinder it offers.

Lcd monitor


On a DSLR (digital single lens reflex) like your Rebel, the shutter remains closed until you actually take a picture. The camera cannot display an image on the LCD since there is no way to preview one that has not been captured.

Can't get image in viewfinder


Your camera works just like a film camera SLR,. You use the eyepiece to frame and focus your picture. The LCD screen is for reviewing pictures taken or menu operations.

No, the so called 'live view' ( seeing pictures in real time on your LCD monitor ) is available only on the latest models that are coming out now ( Canon D40 and Nikon D3 and D300 have this feature ).

no

 

when looking through the eye piece, press the shutter button half way down, you will see red focus points. Use those to align the image.
