I'll explain it to you. THIS IS NORMAL! If you can read this then read your manual. If you don't have a manual then cut and paste this in your web browser.

There is nothing wrong with your camera. The EOS400D is not a point & shoot camera. It does not support "live view" on the LCD when framing up a shot. You need to use the viewfinder. This is the normal camera operation. You can set how long the picture stays in preview mode AFTER the picture has been taken in the camera settings. The later model 40D has "live view" just like a point & shoot.

Canon eos 400d how do i get the screen on rear to show the view before i take the picture


I'm afraid you can't view the image on the rear screen before you take the shot. On cameras like these,( semi and professional DSLR's) this is the norm. You view and compose the shot through the viewfinder and then you can check the result and view all your shots on the lcd screen afterwards

Hi

The Digital Rebel XTi doesn't have 'live view' mode, you can't see what you're taking a picture of before you take the picture.

Canon EOS 400D LCD screen problem


There is no live preview mode on this camera. I am not sure if that is what you are referring to, but you can only use LCD for review and menu, not as a viewfinder.

The new Rebel XSi is the only one in the rebel series with this new feature.

Hope this helps!

NO IMAGE


Check the card isn't set to write protect mode with the switch on it.
I will assume the picture is viewable through the LCD and everything else appears to be normal.

Is my canon eos 400d broken?


This is a Digital SLR With SLR cameras you can only use the viewfinder because the image comesi nto the lens and up to the viewfinder via a mirror. When to take a pic the mirror flips up[usually with a crash] and the image goes to the CCD- afterwards you will get an image briefly in the LCD.
