Question about Canon EOS Rebel Ti / 300V 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Cannon XTi My pictures turn out dark, even outside... sometimes they are ok but most of them are so dark I have to edit them and adjust the lighting and they are still too dark. Is there a setting on the camera to fix this? I have been taking pictures on other cameras for 40yrs and this is giving me grief as I paid alot for this camera.

Try the camera in the full Auto mode to see if it is working correctly. Also check to see that there is no compensation set in the exposure settings for both apature and speed.

Check in the instruction manual to see how to get in to these settings from the user menus.

If this does not work, the camera will need to be serviced for a fault condition.

I was trying to take pictures in a cave that had some light but not a lot. The flash will pop up and the light bursts, but it will not take a picture. It just keeps focusing in and out and it won't...


It's probably too dark and the flash isn't powerful enough to assist the focus mechanism on far away objects (more than 10-15 feet).

If you will need to switch to manual focus and maybe manual exposure.

Consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have a Nikon N60. Can't take pictures outside


can you manually change your f-stop to faster shutting. When the shutter stays open longer, it will draw in to much light. If you have an option for only outside pics, then I would try that as well.

35mm film broke rewinding in camera


Take the camera with the film still inside to a reputable business that develops and prints pictures. The usually have a means of retreiving the film with out futher damage. If you want to do this yourself, you will need a place that is totally dark. You will also need something that is totally light tight. A solid plastic film canister may be sufficient. Take your camera into the "dark room" , open the back and gently try and release the film avoiding as much as possible only touching the edges of the film. You can turn the lights on once you have the film inside the light tight canister.

Help setting shutter speed and adjusting a lense properly


Hey little22,
I would set this camera to auto mode to begin with. This cameras auto mode is actually an aperture priority mode which means you choose the aperture on the lens and the camera automatically chooses the correct shutter speed. For outside photography the morning hours and the evening hours will provide the best light because the light is softer and the subject will not be lit from above which usually cast unwanted shadows on your subject. If you do have to shoot during mid day I would put an external flash on your camera to fill in the shadow areas on the subject. Inside photography is often more challenging because even though the human eye can adjust to low light levels camera film is not so forgiving. You will either need to shoot with a very high ISO film, or you will need to use a flash. I would suggest using a flash since high ISO film is usually very grainy. If you can I would suggest bouncing the flash off of a white surface this should produce softer light and more pleasing portraits. I have included a link to a download of your camera manual incase you need it. If you have any other more specific questions just ask. I hope this helps!

Dear Spotomatic
Most film processing stores will take the film into a darkroom and get it out that way, also most camera supply stores sell light tight bags that you could take the film out of the camera without exposing the fim to light. Make sure you do not open the camera back even in a dark room.

It sounds like you have something blocking your camera lense. Try taking the lense off and clean/brush it lightly. Do the same for the internal of the camera. You want to be especially carefull in this area. Now if it did this as soon as you first used the camera and it is completely clean, the digital film might be damaged. If that was the case, you need to get a refund or exchange for a new one. Let me know what happens!
