On a Canon 450 D. Camera takes images in Basic zone (full auto, portrait, macro, night scene & no flash) but when moved into creative zone (p,Tv, Av, M, A-Dep) the shutter remains open for 30+seconds and when it closes no image is recorded on the card. Is it a camera setting or a fault?


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

Drained Batteries I am having a battery problem with my A75, which is my first digital camera. The camera has gone through 2 sets of brand new alkaline batteries since I've had it.

The most recent batteries where drained after sitting in the camera for two weeks and taking no photos. Basically, brand new batteries drained after two weeks of no use. The Ca

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p

Red Eye Both my wife and I have this camera. We have the red eye reduction function set but almost every indoor shot of people has red eye. I have been told that if this function is set properly it will flash twice quickly when taking a shot. Our cameras only flash once. Any suggestions?
