Having problems with your Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

When taking photos at night I sometimes get a red haze

\015 What causes a red haze(misty look) when taken photos at night?\015

Answers :

It's probably because of the artificial light affecting the white balance, causing the images to appear too 'hot'. Ideally, you could post up some photos so we can see (along with the EXIF data).

If you shoot in RAW you can easily adjust when post processing.

The flash has been working fine until last night when I tried to take a picture and the flash was set to auto. When I press the button the little red light beside the flash sign lights up, but the camera does not take the photo. When I set it to flash mode, it still won't take a photo. When I turn off the flash, then it does. What could be the problem? Is it in the settings?


If your batteries are weak, the flash will not have enough power to flash and will prevent a picture from being taken. ... Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital Camera

Olympus DE-510 Zoom When I turn camera on, the screen has a red T at the top, with a box saying Yes, and one saying No. The line at the bottom says Go>OK. If I click OK, I get the same screen again.

Have a Panasonic FZ50. Puchased a Tokina 3x Telephoto today. Screwed the Telephoto on with the correct adapter ring.Changed the Menu setting to Tele. Go to take a Photo and i can only get the conversion icon to stop blinking red to white at full zoom? Can i still take quality shots at different focal lengths with the blinking red icon in the view finder or at only full zoom.What have i missed? Thanks!


Most add on lenses are designed to be used at a certain focal length, a zoom should be used (is most effective) when you are completely zoomed out, (really why would you add a zoom lens then not zoom all the way) a wide angle lens should be used with ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ50K Digital Camera

Intermittent problem The camera works fine for awhile then the 4-way selector suddenly will not change the menu. Or it gets stuck on full flash or no flash. The selections may get mixed up. The review won't activate except for the last shot sometimes. Then if you leave the camera for a couple of days it seems to fix itself. Everything is fine then suddenly all the troubles come back.

Red eyes appear in all my photos how do I eliminate that? Also if I am taking photos outdoors on a snowy day with not much sunlight how can I get good photos?


Red eye is cause by the internal flash being mounted to close to the lens center axes and is a common problem with most all cameras built this way. Many manufactures have attempted to use "red eye" reduction which fires a pre-flash to close the subje ... Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

I need help setting my Canon EOS Rebel XSi. I was taking photos of my son's soccer game last evening and most of them came out blurry. What setting/s should I set my camera on to get great night shots of his soccer game? Help - as I need to take more pics for tomorows game! Thanks, Tammy


First of all, don't use the flash...it's only good for a short distance. Obviously, you need a fast shutter speed to stop the action. To get this to happen while in auto mode, you will need to set the ISO to a higher number such as 800 or 1600. You w ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

I have a digital canon rebel xt with several lenses. I just purchase a tamron 70-200 1:2.8 lens and want to know the correct setting to take footbal pictures at night from the sidelines. I get perfect daytime photos but still blurry at night HELP


An f2.8 lens is pretty good lens speed, which means that the size opening the lens can make to let light thru it. Try this out:\012Set you camera to at least ASA 1000 sensitivity then set your camera to 'A' or Aperature mode. Walk down to the ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Sometime when I go to take a picture, the shutter button doesn't click so no picture is taken, when this happens I also do not get the red square in the focus. If I turn the camera off and back on, it sometimes works then.

This is done by pointing your selected focus point on your subject, then click the shutter button halfway / half-pressed until you here a beep or see a dot on the lower left portion ...

Sometimes i can press 'disp' button, but it is not permenantly helping. From time to time when I switch my Casio Exilim EX-Z850 on there is a blinking red light next to the view finder.

Hi I am getting an erro message "r33" in the "number of exposures remaining box" - when the message comes up I cannot take a photo - its like the camera is locked. any ideas? also, sometimes the r33 message comes up and it does let me take the picture. so maybe the camera locking issue is not related top the r33 message?

When taking photos of moving items, sometimes it talkes a long time to expose and therefore I get pictures of the ground/sky etc

Overexposed photos?? when i hit my shutter release button, sometimes the flash doesn't pop up and the view finder goes black. (it's like the camera is taking a picture but when I release my finger from the shutter release button it doesn't release) The only way to "get out of it" is to turn the camera off then back on. when i go to playback...it is a white picture. are my settings messed up and how do i avoid this in the future. Many picture moments are missed because of this!


The view finder "going black" on an SLR is caused by the mirror being up, which is also when the camera is actually taking the picture! The mirror sends the light from the lens to either the viewfinder or the sensor. When it's down, the light goes ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

I own a D90 and of late have had problem getting the shutter to actually fire and take a photo at times. It will work sometimes and not at others. I have tried changing the memory card - putting it on manual etc but still won't work. The battery is fully charged. It occasionally comes up with an r05 and r21 code in the R lower box and a flashing F at the top R when this seems to happen. I haven't played with the settings all that much - just since this has begun happening. Can you make any sugge


The r codes you mention are related to speeds of buffering information onto the memory card. A high ISO NR setting on the camera has a huge impact.... the cross over point is 800 ISO. If you have it on, and are on 800 or over, the remaining buffer ca ... Nikon Digital Cameras
