Canon 300 EOS images

\015 I own an EOS digital rebel. Recently images have been showing up with the bottom 3/4 dark (completely black) with a fuzzy demarcation. Any help???\015

Answers :

This could happen if you're using flash and your shutter speed is set too high. If you're not set to Program or Auto mode, try changing to Program mode and see if that solves your problem.
Otherwise, it sounds like a sensor issue. Call Canon support - I've found them helpful. Check the website for phone number.

EOS Utility I purchased a Rebel Xsi, and installed the software. Upon connecting my camera to my computer, and launching the EOS Utility, the options to download the images, select images, or camera settings are shaded out. In order to transfer pictures, I have to go into "My Computer", open up the camera and copy and paste it. I have updated all of the software from Canon's website with the June 2009 updates, and the problem persists. Thanks for the help.


I got the same problem updating the EOS Utility. The version on the original SXi CD is 2.4.0.1. The upgrade is version 2.6.1. I suggest you to uninstall all the updated software. Or at least the EOS Utility. Go to the folder <C:\\Documents and Se ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

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 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
