Take the lens off and carefully lift the mirror - if the sub-mirror underneath the main mirror doesn't follow the main mirror up, the stop-pin has broken off and has to be repaired by a camera shop. A common problem.

My EOS 300d blank images


That problem is normally associated with having a too high shutter speed when using flash. If it happens in any mode, with or without flash you may have a shutter blind issue.

Test the camera at various shutter speeds and compare the results. If this black area is consistant across different shutter speeds, send it in for repair. It is most likely the shutter curtain not making a pass across the sensor fast enough, still obscuring the sensor when a photo was taken.

Image Problems


Either your shutter, or the sub-mirror assembly is broken. Purchase a faulty/broken 350D from ebay and use the working parts from your camera on the broken one (i.e., get one with a shot mainboard). For disassembling follow this guide:

Good luck.

Date on pictures taken and movie shooting on canon eos 400d


The EOS Digital Rebel, EOS Digital Rebel XT and EOS Digital Rebel XTi do not support stamping the date and time on the image.

It is not possible to record the date and time as part of the image at the time the picture is taken. However, the date and time is captured in the EXIF information of the image at the point of capture. It is possible to print the image with the date and time via printing software. Please see the documentation for the software package that you use for printing images for the proper procedure.
