What does "BUSY" mean on my Canon Rebel T1i, while I'm trying to upload pictures onto my computer?


It means that the transfer is in process. It's letting you know that you shouldn't turn off your camera - it is busy!

Camera flashes error code 01, shutter will take but picture is whited out. This happened after I changed lenses on the camera even after reattaching several times thinking it was not threaded properly.


Try to clean the lens contact both on the camera and the lens.
If it doesn't work, do a firmware update of your camera.
If it is still not resolved, contact Canon directly.

Hope this helps.

When using Canon Rebel XS sometimes it takes several seconds before I can take another shot. it reads busy. What can i do to correct this. I am losing perfect picture opportunities


This can depend on the picture quality you have selected, try using JPEG only, no RAW. If this is still not fast enough, you can try a faster SD card, going up to a SDHC Class 6. The Canon XS is a low-end of the EOS Digital Rebel and the slowest, if speed is absolutely required past JPEG only and a Class 6 SDHC, your only hope is upgrading to a faster Rebel.

Be aware that the built in flash does not pop up automatically in all picture modes. Try it when in the different modes (on the mode dial) and see what I mean. Does it popo up when manually opened ?, (small button on front left hand side of the viewing pentaprism/flash housing.)

Camera fell in the water for 3 seconds, wont turn on


The best advice is to check with Canon, describe what happened, and take their advice. I think you will do best if it is seawater, or saltwater, to return it for servicing, as salt is deadly to some camera parts, and if you switch on with salt water in, it can cause permanent damage to circuits, and even can create a short between components, particularly the flash circuit. If it is fresh water, and for some reason you don't want to return it, it is best to use a hair dryer on medium or low heat to blow dry as much as possible, with the lens off, and the battery and card compartments also open, and come back to it after about an hour and repeat.Do not heat it to anything more than about skin heat, as evaporation will continue at even room temperature. Do this for most of the day, and leave it for a day or two, or even a week, as open to the air as you can, but in a dust-free environment, preferably in a warmish place, like an airing cupboard, so that all moisture will evaporate, Then try it again with fresh battery. I suspect that if it still won't operate, you could repeat the process, but it is most likely then, that you will have to return it for servicing or repair. I had an Olympus C8080w, and me and the camera were swamped by heavy spray from a wave, and I ran to the local shop, bought some tissues, and dried it immediately. I took it home, zoomed out, dried as much as possible down the lens gap, and left it in warm room. When dried out, some salt crystals were left on the lens barrel on zoom out, but thank the Lord, it still worked, and has not let me down - I did use a damp hanky to try and absorb as much water as possible from the outside, and dilute any surface salt as much as I could. I still use it regularly, but dropping into water is a different matter. - Please post and let us know what happens - and the best of luck
