Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Flashing beeping light

This camera is new to me. I changed the lens on it today, attaching a telephoto lens.

When I click to take a picture, I can hear a bit of grinding noise. The flash bulb pops up. Then nothing happens. When I hit the button again, there is a small clear light on the upper right side on the camera that comes on and it beeps.

Does anyone know why this is happening? I appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks so much!

This may sound too simple but make sure the lense is on there flush and locked. Sometimes it can go on crooked.

I have a Minolta Maxxum 5D which I really like. I take a lot of pictures outside with my job. I have a telephoto lens and a regular lense as well. I switch lenses a good bit depending on the shot. ...


It can occur if the contacts on the lens where they meet the contacts on the camera body need cleaning. Try a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Black at the bottom of the pictures


Possible causes :
1. dirt or dust in camera or lens
2. dirt on sensor
3. sensor is cracked
If you are using the built-in flash and a telephoto lens, the end of the lens can block some of the light from the flash and that appears as a slightly rounded black "hump" at the bottom of your picture.

"hand" icon flashing


Hello,

It's likely your photos are blurry from camera motion, caused by taking a hand-held photo with a slow shutter speed, rather than out of focus.

The hand icon flashes when you don't have enough light to take a crisp (not blurry) photo without either using a tripod (or a flash). The reason for a flashing hand is you can't "hand-hold" the camera at the current settings - you need to use a tripod. If you are "zoomed in" (on a telephoto setting for your lens) you can sometimes get a crisp hand-held photo if you "zoom out" to a wider angle setting on the lens. (You need a steadier hand to hand-hold a telephoto lens setting than a wide-angle lens setting.)

You may have changed a setting that sets the ISO (the normal setting would be "auto") and if so, if you change the ISO to a high number, or to auto, this will help you take better photos in low light. Check your camera's user's manual to see how to check/change the ISO.

When you have more light the icon will stop flashing. If you need to take hand-held photos in low light then you need to use flash, or get a better camera that has better low light capabilities.

I have an SP 510 UZ digital camera. I have just bought a new telephoto lense, but I can't seem to get the existing lense off the cammera. Help!


Hey john42hockey,
The lens on this camera is not removable. What you need to attach the telephoto lens to your camera is to get a 43-55mm Step-Up Ring, and a CLA-1 lens adapter tube. You should first attach the lens adapter tube to the camera, and then screw the step up ring into the tube and then screw the telephoto lens into step up ring. I have included a link to the manufacturer where you can purchase both the step up ring, and the lens adapter tube incase you need these. I hope this helps!

Flashless photograghy


If you set the camera to P (program) the flash will not pop up automatically but the camera will still control the shutter speed and aperature settings automatically. Also with the lens you are using you should probably have a tripod which will help you hold the camera more steady.

Blurry Images


If there's not enough light your camera can't invent any. Well, normally it can, which is what a flash does, but as you've said, no flash allowed. Your photos are blury because you're not mounting the camera on a tripod or you are using an ISO value that's too low for the available light. The shutter speed is slow to make up for the lack of light you have. But it's obviously too slow to hand-hold and you're shaking too much when you're taking the photo. Increasing the shutter speed is only going to make your images underexposed. So, pick a higher ISO value or get a tripod or monopod. Oh and read the manual. As for you purchasing the wide angle lens and the telephoto lens, I can not fathom why you would purchase something and have no idea what it is used for. That just boggles my mind. Perhaps a basic photography book is in order? Something to get a few of the fundamentals down? Any photography book with the word "beginner" and probably the word "digital" in it would be a fine start. They're all equally basic.

Telephoto lens for digital camera


It will not work because it is the wrong thread size. Here is info on the Olympus TCON-17 lens for the 5050: TCON-17 (1.7X) Telephoto Conversion Lens Extend the capabilities of your digital camera with the TCON-17 Telephoto Converter lens. This telephoto lens will increase the magnification of your subject by 1.7x when your camera lens is set to the telephoto position. This will help you bring in the subject when you can't get closer, for example, shooting sports or concerts. Please see below for additional items required to attach this lens to your camera. The following models require the CLA-1 and 43-55mm Step-Up Ring: C-2000/2020/2040/3000/3020/3030/3040/4000/4040/5050 Zoom ....... The video lens is too small (diameter). If you found one with a 43mm thread and put it on the 5050, you would experience severe vignetting (clipping of the corners of the photo).

The pictures I take with my Kodak digital camera are not clear


One or more causes may result in unclear (blurry) pictures. Some common causes and suggested solutions are listed below. The lens is dirty. Clean the lens according to the guidelines for your camera model. The subject was too close to the camera. Make sure that you are far enough away from your subject. Each camera model has recommended distances for normal, telephoto (zoom), wide-angle, and close-up pictures. The subject was farther than the effective range of the flash. Each camera model has an effective flash range. The camera did not autofocus or autoexpose the picture correctly. For best Autofocus/Autoexposure function, press the shutter button halfway down and hold. When the AF/AE Indicator (Ready Light on some cameras) turns green, press the shutter button the rest of the way down to take the picture. If the yellow light blinks, release the shutter button. (On some models, the light will also blink yellow if the shutter speed is too slow.) You did not use the LCD screen Preview feature to take a picture in Close-Up mode. When the camera is in Close-Up mode, always use the Preview feature, both to confirm focus and to aim the camera properly. If you do not do this, the viewfinder will not show you an accurate view of the picture because of parallax error. The subject or camera moved while you took the picture. Place the camera on a flat, stable surface, and hold the camera very steady. Or use a copy stand or tripod – especially advisable at telephoto or high-zoom settings, or in low light.
