Question about Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

3 Answers

SPOTS on pictures taken by my Canon EOS Rebel XTi

With the aperture less than 1/7, there are always some black spots on the pictures taken by my xti camera. It is a quite new camera which I bought last month. What should I do? Can it be solved by just cleaning the CCD? Please tell me the address of your service center in New York City where I can take my camera to and clean it.
Thanks

If it is a brand new camera then I would suspect that the vertical resolution on the lens is messed up. This is a known issue with Canon lens (though I thought they fixed it). It doesn't affect the camera. You can confirm the issue by using another lens (friends' or just go to a store and try one there), if the dark spots disappear, then you will know.

You can send or if its near, take the lens to authorized Canon service center. In warranty, they should do it for free.

Why am I not able to look through the LCD screen to see a picture that I want to take instead of looking through the view finder.

Cleaning the lens and CMOS (Canon uses CMOS instead of CCD sensors) would be the first thing I would do. Before an expensive cleaning (usually at least $60) try getting a blower and blowing off the lens and sensor (find the sensor cleaning thing in the yellow section of the cameras menu, select it, the mirror will lock up, take off the lens, blow on the sensor with the blower)
For the lens, besides the blower, use a microfiber cloth on it.

If the problem persists, almost any camera store will clean cameras. Try Ritz cameras, here is a list of their stores in NY city.

I have a canon 600D I used the "M" those Maunal modes, I put a certain settings like : shutter (1/60) aperture (8-10) iOS (100-400) whenever I try to take a picture the screen turns black why?!!!


The screen will turn off if you put your eye close to the viewfinder as it has a sensor to stop light intruding on your vision through the viewfinder.

Unable to download pictures?


You should get a card reader and use that instead, because it's much quicker to download. However, also look at Canon's website, for newer versions of the software.

My canon rebel xti is broken?


This will happen if you have the camera set to manual and the aperture/shutter speed combination does not let in enough light. There's a wheel on the top of the camera with M, A, S, P, Auto settings - turn the wheel to select P or Auto and try again.
Also, if you're indoors, you may have to use the flash.

New canon eos digital rebel xti


There have been several reports of CF cards that work with all cameras, except the Rebel XTi. It depends on the actual manufacturer of the card. Canon made a change mid-production that affected the data saving. Try another brand of card & you should not have that problem any more.

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.

Canon eos digital canon rebel xti - LCD won't work when shooting


Most DSLR cameras (like your Canon) don't have a live view - in other words, you can't "see" the image before you capture it. You must use the viewfinder.
