Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

My Canon DSLR Rebel XS is one year old. When I look through the lens, the image is blurry, but when I shoot the picture it looks OK on the preview screen. I am guessing this is a problem with the camera body because I see the same blurry image when I use a different lens.

Is it possible that you changed the diopter adjustment next to the viewfinder? You need to set it to your vision.

When I try to take a picture I get an error 99 message. Shooting is not possible turn off power switch or remove battery


Hiyou have very common problem of canon dslr product. usually problem come from defective shutter unit. However, there is cause from lens also. Would you remove lens and push shutter button? if no error 99, then the problem come from lens---usually power diaphragm control fpc defective.If shows error 99, then you have body problem. At this point, still you have to check more. please set camera M mode and bulb shutter speed, you have to look front of camera if mirror goes up and show to you picture sensor. would you tell me more later.

Should the LCD screen show what I am taking a picture of? I can review it afterwards.


Your camera is a DSLR with a mirror prism, so when you look through the viewfinder you are seeing the scene as what it is much like looking through a pair of glasses. To have "Live View" what you would be looking at is a digital image of what the camera is pointed at. That's a pretty simple explanation but one the DSLR is optical where as the Live View is a digital image. What you have is an entry level DSLR camera much the same as professional photographers use. I use both types and they both have their place but when I'm shooting for the ultimate image for print I'm looking through the viewfinder not a live view.

While taking picture with my Canon Rebel xs when you look through the lens it's blurry why is that?


I'm gonna state the obvious and suggest the lenses may be dirty. If cleaning the lenses with a cloth doesn't fix the problem, send it for repair because it may be an internal problem you may be unable to repair yourself without the proper tools and know-how.

Brand new Canon EOS Rebel XS. Suddenly, image in the view finder is blurry. Auto focus seems to be working, and pictures are coming out fine. But sometimes, the autofocus focuses on the wrong thing, and so...


Next to the viewfinder ther is a diopter adjustment so you can change the focus in the viewfinder. this is so if you need glasses the camera can be set for you. Start by focusing the camera on something, then slide to turn the diopter adjustment until it looks sharp and try not to bump it.

How to zoom in using Canon EOS Rebel XS?


Zooming is done from the lens on a DSLR, assuming you have a zoom lens on the camera. For example, if your camera came with the 18-55mm lens, you should see the numbers 18, 24, 35 and 55 on the lens barrel with a white index line next to one of the numbers. Turn the barrel to move a different number next to the index line. 18mm is wide angle, 55mm is 'zoomed in'.

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.

Taking pics


That's because the Nikon D40 does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that effectivly deflects the light path to the viewfinder and only to the sensor when the internal mirror is raised. Early live preview models from Olympus had the world's first Live View system by flipping the mirror so that the picture preview could be seen on the rear monitor. Most manufacturers now incorporate Live View into most of their models but most Nikon consumer models do not as yet, apart from the newly relesed D90. The D40 and D40x are two year old designs and therefore do not have the more "modern" specs of say the Olympus E520 or Canon EOS450D. Most photographers trading up from a compact to a DSLR are surprised when they cannot use the LCD monitor in the same way. However for most aspects of DSLR photography Live View is not something that is used all the time, low down shots, and macro perhaps being the most convenient use, but for general photography there is no substitute for framing through the viewfinder, that's what we've been used to doing for over half a century! Besides as pointed out previously a DSLR is often too heavy to hand hold at arms length especially with a long lens.
