Have canon rebel xti digital 400d--how do i see live image prior to shooting on lcd monitor


Answers :

This Canon model 400D or XTi does not have Live view capability in the LCD screen, so you cannot do it.
\015\012
\015\012You have to use the view finder to select the image that you want to capture with it.
\015\012
\015\012If you need a Canon DSLR camera with Live View capability, you need to try other different model such as the T1i or XSi.

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.
