My camera has spots in the picture



The spots are caused by the flash being SO close to the lens. Anyobject that can reflect the flash reflects it right back at the camera.
This is an image problem with most point and shoot digitals. Watch forreflective surfaces and stand at an angle to them. Turn on more lightsin the room before using flash. Most indoor pictures start way too dark.
Stand at a slight angle to the image orperson you are photographing - don't shoot straight on. (I kneel downand shoot up - makes a good shot too.)
If you are shooting toward the sun lit side of an image, shield the lens from direct sunlight with your hand (Keep your hand out of the picture!)
A professional photographer has the flash way away from the lens for a reason...

Canon Rebel camera wideangle lens settings?


That depends on what you're taking a picture of. The best setting for a landscape picture won't necessarily be the best setting for a group portrait. You might want to use different settings for a daytime landscape than for a sunset. That's why the camera offers different settings. The camera is a tool. You're the photographer.

This is called flare or ghosting, and can occur if the lens element or filter needs a (GENTLE) clean. It is also made worse by the angle of the lights - if the light is in the picture, there is a strong chance of flare. Try taking the photographs at an angle to the track, rather than from almost directly head on - this will mean the lights do not shine directly into the lens.
If you use a longer lens from further away, it may also mitigate the effects of this.

I hope you have solved this problem if not there is two things that have happened to me one was that I had unlocked the lens and it turned a little which shut off the communications between the camera ad lens. The other is where the gold contacts between the camera and lens became slightly dirty with a hazy this is easily fixed with a DIY. using a pencil eraser gently polish the contacts between the camera and lens both sets of contacts, be careful not to get dirt into the camera or lens when you are doing this. Don't use a puffer or any air.

LCD is dark and only has icons displayed. Can't view image to photograph.


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.
