Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

DOES THE CANON EOS550D,,,, DSLR CAMERA, HAVE THE ABILITY TO RECORD TIME/DATE ON THE RECORDED IMAGE???


Answers :

Yes. If the date and time is set, they will be appended to the recorded images. To set the time, press the Menu button. Then select the option with the icon that looks like an open end wrench with the left/right arrows. Then use the up/down arrows to select date/time. Choose the digit to be updated and press Set. Change the value with the up/down arrows and then press Set again. Repeat for the other digits in the date and time. Then press OK followed by Set. Then exit the Menu by pressing Menu again.

The EOS550D is also called the Canon Rebel T2i. Manuals and other information are here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/eos_slr_camera_systems/eos_digital_slr_cameras/eos_rebel_t2i_ef_s_18_55mm_is_kit .

I own a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. This camera is unpredictable; i.e., I never know when it will decide not to record an image. I have reset it many times to the manufacturer's default settings, and then it SOMETIMES works, but then for some reason stops recording images. I have started to always carry a second camera (a point & shoot). However I am enrolled in a number of photography classes in the new year where I need an SLR. Is this camera issue serious or something I can fix? Thanks.

Hi,\015\012It sounds like the 'mirror up' option is selected since the mirror will stay up for 30 seconds then close and it wouldn't be active on any of the basic settings. You'll want to go into your settings menu and disable mirror lockup. If you n ... Canon EOS 450D Digital Camera
