Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera ?

Canon 300 EOS images not complete

\015 My canon EOS digital rebel has been great till recently. The images have been coming thru with the bottom 3/4 "unexposed" - there is dark area with fuzzy edge, and only the top 1/4 or so being recognized. Perhaps the shutter isn't timing right... Anyone know what this proble is???\015

Answers :

There is a plastic pin pivot inside the box mirror (right side of it if you see the front of the camera), which allows the sub-mirror to move in one direcction, basically, during the capture process of the image by the CMOS sensor.
\015\012The dark or black areas mean that such plastic pivot is either broken or missing (pushed in).
\015\012The plastic pin pivot is really very cheap ($3.00), but the problem is that in order to replace it and fix the camera, it is necessary to almost disassemby the camera and box mirror, which maycost between $120.00 - $200.00, depending where you will send your camera for such procedure.
\015\012In internet you can Google for some guidelines in how you can repair it yourself, using a standard metal paper clip (forming it with pliers and glueing it to the mirror box) if you think that you can do it yourself.
\015\012If your camera has ay kind of warranty, you can return it to make it valid.
\015\012Also, if you search in internet, you will find some persons that claim that their cameras out of warranty were fixed FREE of charge (only the paid the shipping) after talk with Canon about the problem.
\015\012Bottom line, this repair is time consuming, and needs some degree of skills and experience to open and disassembly the camera, and repair it.
\015\012You need to evaluate if you want to spend money on it, or do it yourself.
\015\012Best regards,

I'm having problems with the settings on my Canon EOS 400D. When I take pictures in AV mode I can get quality pictures but in TV or M modes the pictures always come out so dark even when taking them outside in daylight. They are not coming back with a completely blank screen as I can see the outlines of the image. Even when I try different settings nothing improves the image.

Have you done the basic unsharp masking after RAW processing? Normally you'll find a 500% strength, 0.3 pixel and a threshold of 1 or 2 brings out the detail masked by the AA filter very well.

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.

Troubleshooting problems I have a canon powershot s60. I tried to take a picture earlier and the screen is completely white. The camera turns on, the battery is fully charged and there is nothing wrong with the digital card. THe camera wasn't dropped nor did it get wet.

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
