Question about Canon GL1 Mini DV Digital Camcorder

1 Answer

Canon gl1 - no picture in the fold out lens

After a recent shoot (camera is rarely used), the camera is not showing an image in the viewer (the flip out side screen which is something like 2X1. I can look through the eye piece and see the image but not on the screen. Battery was charged, camera was on "vcr" to play back. Is there a setting that controls this (I'm thinking I perhaps hit a button). As you can tell, I'm not terribly skilled when it comes to mechanical items. Hoping you can help, Regards, Ron Capito

Hi,

By placing the POWER switch into CAMERA mode, you will then be able to press the MENU button, and access all camera adjustments....including the LCD function.

Can't viewb the LCD screen when shooting a picture! it's just black


The D60 works as SLRs have worked for half a century, showing the image in the viewfinder until you press the shutter. The LiveView feature which shows the image on the LCD screen is a rather recent development on DSLRs, unlike on point&shoot cameras. The D60 does not have this capability, which Nikon introduced with the D3 and D300.

Sorry if this wasn't the answer you wanted to see, but there it is.

My canon eos 100D wont's show the image on the screen. it will take the picture when looking through the view finder, but i would like it to appear on the screen. pleae help


Unlike compact point and shoot cameras, Canon's range of EOS D-SLRs don't have the LCDs stay on all the time. The design of the SLR camera involves a mirror in front of the sensor. The mirror in its normal position inhibits the image to be captured by the image sensor. When you shoot, the mirror flips up for a split second and back to its rest position.

To use "Live View" (composing shots with the LCD), there is an option in the Menu to enable it. Once enabled, press the centre "Select" button behind the camera to activate the LCD. However, the camera can't Auto Focus for you in Live View mode so manual focusing input is required of the photographer.

I have an e500. The viewer will not come on for taking pics.


Unfortunately with the EVOLT E-500 it does not have the capability for a live view LCD screen. You must shoot images using the viewfinder only. The newer Olympus SLR cameras now have both viewfinder and live view LCD.

My screen is not working


The 35mm Canon DSLR cameras don't have that option like lower end point and shoots. The image must be captured prior to viewing.

This does not seem to be a problem with the camera, but a problem with the computer software.
