Hi Sam,
This is what may be happening. First of all, that is a EXCEPTIONAL camera. Getting a lot of noise in a photo would signify a defective CCD or a component within the imaging circuit having failed. IT'S NOT YOU.
Solid State Electronics, and digital cameras definitely fall into that category, if they are going to fail, will fail within the first 90 days or so. Good rule of thumb. If they get past that point, they will usually go for many years without a failure, if taken care of.
It appears to me that this one slipped through quality control cracks of Canon.
I would contact Canon's customer support for an exchange.

I have heard that Digital cameras have a limited life time on how much you can take pictures. I have a Canon 550D. Is it true that there is a certain ammount on how much you can take pictures and then it...


Any mechanical device will eventually wear out, and a DSLR has many moving parts. The shutter and the mirror mechanism are prime examples, but in addition there are buttons and dials.

There's nothing in the camera keeping track of the date or number of pictures and then stopping operation when some limit is reached. In normal operation, the camera should be good for years and/or tens (or hundreds) of thousands of pictures.

This is normal behavior for taking a picture using the bulb. After you release the bulb, the camera may detect that a noise reduction step is necessary. The noise reduction process can take as long as the exposure time. There is an option to disable long exposure noise reduction. Click here to see the manual for details.

Can the 550D eos take a picture without the lens? if yes, how?


The lens is what focusses the image on the sensor. If you remove the lens, the sensor just receives a burst of unfocussed light.

My new canon550d has a lot of colored noise trouble in the pictures..suggest me a solution..


Check your ISO setting. If you have it really high it will introduce a lot of color noise to your pics. I rarely shoot above ISO 800 on my 40D to reduce noise in the photos. If your ISO is low then you may have a problem with the processor.

Recently purchased a Canon 550D and when previewing an image on the camera, it appears fine. After switching it on and off, the image appears as a small version with "Can not display preview". ...


you maybe taking shots in raw which is fine but depending on what OS you have and computer hardware might mean your pc is struggling to open them. might want to check your photo resolution settings by pressing menu button and on the first list you should see the quality mode your using try taking shots in jpeg see if that helps.

if its already taking photos in jpeg then i highly recommend downloading picasa as it has an excellent photo viewer which you can enable as your default photo viewer. opens raw and jpeg photos no problem.

My Canon 550d is new and right out of the box on full auto indoor pics are dark. If I go to no flash mode they are much brighter. It's like the flash is out of sync. Is it the camera or me?


the flash only covers a certain range and the built in flash has quite a small range. so lets say its dark in the room and you take a shot of a person they probably look really bright but the background is pretty dark, thats pretty normal and its better not to use flash, now in the auto mode without flash it will be using a higher "ISO" number to get you brighter shots indoors. shots may look slightly grainer but it means its brighter and the 550d handles low light pretty well.

in auto mode you have no control over the ISO but put the camera into P mode which is basically auto but with access to more controls which you can override. now next to the shutter button there is an "ISO"button. experiment with the different numbered setting (100 being low 3200 being high) and you will see what I mean

Canon Powershot SLR takes fuzzy photos


Guys,
you need additional flash or brighter light to click in low lighting condition. In order to compensate for low light conditions, the shutter goes slow and therefore you get fuzzy pictures.

Another way is to click on movie(video) mode and then atleast you can see them moving around as well as while editing, you could take out some pictures from the video( though on lmuch ower resolution).

Pictures have colour cast


Sorry if this sounds obvious, but this might rather have to do with White Balance. Rather than relying on AutoWhiteBalance, try setting it to "cloudy" or "shade", this may help the blue cast.
