Canon Rebel xti vs Photoshop!

Hi there, I am in an incredible jam. I just bought this camera and I did two photoshoots with it. Amazingly enough with ordinary camera's non -slr's I have no problem downloading and editing in photoshop. My problem is I can't download to my computer and open the image in photoshop without the photo being in 72dpi. Can I adjust it in photoshop to 300 will it be pixelated?

What you are seeing is the difference between "pixel count resolution" and "embedded resolution". So in your example 2272*1704 is the actual pixel count resolution as recorded by the camera & 72 is the embedded resolution that tells the software (in this case photoshop) what the intended use of the picture will be. 72 ppi is the default for web pictures. You can change this in photoshop by going to the "Image" tab & select image size. The window that opens will show you the pixel dimensions i.e. pixel count resolution and the document size & resolution 72. You just change it to 300 for printing. You can change the default to 300 by going "edit", "preferences", "units & rulers" and setting the values for "new document preset resolutions". This is a complex subject, I recommend looking at the following web page: http://www.fotofinish.com/resources/centers/photo/resolution.htm Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

    P.S. - If you change the "document" resolution the results should not be pixelated...

How do you get to the video mode on the canon 400d rebel xti

There is no video mode on the Xti. The first Canon Digital Rebel to be equipped with video was the T1i, which came out almost 5 years later (2 years ago).

Why does the word, ''busy'' pop up on the canon rebel xti?

This is the camera writing to the CF memory card. Perhaps your card is a lttle slow, so you will see the message. I use the Sandisk Ultra II CF, labelled as 15Mb/sec and it is very very fast indeed - I don't have any lag with my XTi. Try a different CF, if it is fast enough, the message will go away. Ensure you format the card on the camera too.

I have a canon rebel xti. Some of my images are soft...not too soft, but a little. If I upgraded to canon 40 D slr, would my pictures be sharper, like around someones eyes, assuming I keep the lens,...

I have a Rebel XTi and take professional images. It could be that your lens isn't as sharp as it should be or your sharpness settings in the camera are set low.

New Canon Rebel xti photos won't print on my Epson Photo R320

Re-install the printer after downloading the latest driver from Epson. It is quite likely that the Canon software has over written the colour profile for the Epson.

Transfer from XTI camera to PC

Seems to be a common problem with the XTi. Some say it's designed to underexpose to avoid washing out the bright parts of scene. Personally I found it a pita. I had to PhotoShop each shot.So I sent it back to the repair facility. They re-calibrated it. Now it works fine.
