Cannot preview shots in lcd with new Canon Rebel xs 1000d

\015 I have a new Canon Rebel XS 1000D and cannot figure out how to enable the picture preview in the LCD prior to shooting pic. I can review pictures taken through view finder however. Help please?\015

Answers :

There are two modes to the XS's Live View system, selectable via\015\012Custom Function 7. Live View is disabled by default, by the way, so\015\012you'll need to find this menu item in Settings Menu 2 to turn it on.\015\012The two options are called Quick and Live modes. Quick mode works as\015\012most Live View modes do, dropping the mirror when you press the AE-Lock\015\012button (marked with an asterisk) to use the conventional phase-detect\015\012autofocus system. This temporarily blacks out the Live View image,\015\012which makes it impossible to know that you're still framing the subject\015\012and holding your AF point in the proper place.
\015\012That's why they added the second mode, which they call Live, but is better \015\012 described as contrast-detect autofocus. This works just like a digicam, reading \015\012 the image from the imaging sensor while adjusting the lens for the setting that \015\012 produces the most contrast in the image. A small square appears in the center \015\012 of the image area, and you can move it around with the cross keys. Just like \015\012 Quick mode, unfortunately, you have to press the AE-Lock button first until \015\012 you hear the focus confirmation beep, then press the shutter button to fire. \015\012 It's a little slower at times than phase-detect mode, but it gets the job done. \015\012 Live mode is really better for tripod work, where you can place the AF area \015\012 right where you want it and confirm focus onscreen.
\015\012Both modes offer the ability to zoom in on your live view, excellent for confirming \015\012 focus before capture. Using the Magnify button just right of the AE-Lock button, \015\012 you can zoom in 5x or 10x, then press the AE-Lock button to focus if you like; \015\012 but of course you can't confirm framing in that mode.

Black screen Yesterday I grabbed my camara for a not to be missed shot and found that I too have the same problem now of the black image through the view finder and on the lcd screen.
