Question about Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon lens locks when taking a picture.

Whenever I attempt to take a picture with my Canon EOS Rebel XSi, I press the button and it locks the lens, and then when I press the button again, it actually takes the picture again with the proper shutter speed. Is there something wrong with my lens or is it just a setting on the camera, and if it's a setting, how do I undo it to automatically take a picture?

Mirror lockup is probably enabled. You can disable it by going into Menu and then Custom Functions. Select Mirror lockup and disable it.

Can not see subject through the lcd screen


Um, no. EOS Rebel is a "single lens reflex" camera. The display on the back does not show live image. Use the viewfinder above it. After you take a picture, the picture will show on the screen for a few seconds.

My Cannon Rebel XSi when pictures are taken are blurry


Try using manual focus. Make sure your auto focus points are correctly set. Look for button that looks like matrix. Press it then use/press joy stick type button to select auto focus point.

When i take pictures inside with my Canon eos Rebel xsi the pictures are very dark and I have tried all settings is it the camera or the lens?


Clear the custom functions and clear the camera settings in the main menu set the camera to P mode to get there! If you want to know if it is the lens. Put the camera in P mode and set the iso to 1600 and press the button on the bottom left side of the camera and listen to the lens diaphragm you should hear it moving, point the camera somewhere dark. Or set the camera to AV mode put the iso to 100 and turn the dial behind the shutter release switch all the way to the right and take a pic pointed towards a light source if the camera goes error 99 then it is the lens diaphragm! When I test a camera I set it to P mode and the iso to 400 and use the center focusing light and take four pics, one with the flash and one without close up and two as far away as possible one with the flash and one without and then compare the pics! Are you using the 18-55 mm is lens that came with the camera or a different one!

CANON EOS REBEL XSI 450D BODY WHEN TAKING A PICTURE ERROR 99 COMES UP


Unfortunately, the Error 99 code is a catch-all code that means an UNKNOWN error has occurred. Because of this, it is difficult to pin down exactly what is causing the problem.

It could be a fault with either the camera (main circuit board, software, shutter mechanism etc.) or even the lens.

For starters, I would make sure that the lens electrical contacts are clean and the lens is mounted correctly and fully locked home. If you have a spare lens, try that also.

Next, I would reformat the memory card (do this in camera). If you have a spare memory card, try that also.

Check that the battery contacts are clean, and also the contacts of any external hardware such as vertical grips.

If none of these solve the problem, the only option left is to take it to a Canon service agent :-(

Hope this helps,

Matt

My Canon Rebel XSi screen will not turn on even though the battery is fully charged.


Does it take pictures? If it does, the display may be off, try pressing the DISP button a few times. If not, the camera may need to be reset, the battery may be faulty, or the camera may need to be serviced.
