Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
Here's your answer:
This camera as with the majority of other DSLR's is UNABLE to display the image while you are trying to take it. There is a mirror in SLR's that blocks the sensor; you can only see the image through the eyepiece. This is a good thing. Using the screen on the back does not give you as clear of a picture or as an approximate image.
Some newer DSLR's like Canon's 40D/ Nikon D300 are capable of displaying the image on the screen but the camera is much slower when using this mode (it must close the mirror then re-open it before exposure happens). Its ONLY preferred when shooting on a tripod.
So to answer your question - you can't do it with your XTi. Period. Sorry. (not that, thats a bad thing though).
