Having problems with your Canon EOS 500D / Digital Rebel T1i Digital Camera ?

I have a Canon EOS Rebel T1i and am trying to set the ISO and White Balance while in the Full Auto Mode, but can't view the settings on the LCD screen. What am I doing wrong?


Answers :

Nothing, in full auto mode you can't adjust allmoust anything. If you want to "play" with adjusting some elements you simply need to use some other camera setting other than full auto more. \015\012Full auto is simply "point and shoot" for people witch dont know allmoust anything about photography.

When I try to take a picture, the LCD displays a lot of colorfull squiggly lines instead of the scene that I want to capture. When I turn it ON, the Zoom lens extends normally, then the colored lines appear with the following settings on the screen. Auto, 1M 178, ISO 400, ! plus a hand icon, AUTO, 4, F2.8. No matter which mode I choose, the same thing happens. Looking through the EVF shows the same thing. Note; I can view several good pictures that I took before the problem showed up. If I

I have a Canon 1000d and it appears to take great pictures when viewed on the lcd screen or computer but when I get photos developed they appear to be a bit dark. The pictures are taken in auto mode. I have read somewhere that the factory settings need adjusting and it needs to be sent back. It is no longer under warranty. Has anyone else had this problem?

This should reset all setting to default.Also you can adjust the settings in the menus to darken the pictures slig ...

I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck


Your boyfriend is probably right, and it makes sense, if you can't change the f-stops. \015\012The following blog on Flickr might help you:\015\012 ... Nikon D200 Body Only Digital Camera

My Sony A700 works ok in the P,A,S and M modes. However when set in Auto mode the lcd shows Portrait. When in Portrait it shows Portrait. When in Landscape the lcd shows Portrait. When in Macro it shows Manual.When in Sports action it show Manual. In Sunset it shows Nightime. It also shows Nightime in both the Nightime and Memory Recall modes. The +/- button calls up the ISO screen instead of the ev screen. What's the solution?


Has it been serviced before? I remember one A200 with a very similar problem. There was a flex cable broken inside - the owner had given it to another technician before me and he managed to brake it. I think it could be a bad connection or some liqui ... Sony Alpha DSLR-A700

Hi, I have a Canon IXUS 95IS camera.. For some reason, when I attempt to take a photo, the LCD screen isn't displaying what is actually in view? In movie mode it comes up on the screen but when i flick it to Auto or camera mode, the screen goes black and only shows the little icons... Weirdly enough, it still takes the picture but the really annoying thing is it doesn't show up on the screen what you're taking a photo of so it makes it really hard for the person taking the actually photo... can

Movie trouble I haven't had my camera very long, it was a hand-me-down from my dad. So, this past week I took my first videos with it. All seems good on the LCD screen, but when I try and view it on my computer it is all distorted and blurry. The sounds is great the picture is just awful. Were my settings wrong? It is opening up in the newest version of Windows Media Player, am I missing some drivers for viewing? Thanks for any help~ Lisa

Lcd/viewfinder THe LCD screen looks as if there is a shutter, for lack of a better description, nearly closed. Only a sliver of view is available. It appears that way with both the picture taking and playback mode. The eyepiece looks different than normal, but at least can be used. Photos come out just fine. The same thing happened last week, and then all of a sudden it was OK. Did I mistakenly change a setting? Any suggestions? Thank you!

Hi!! I inherited a Konica Dynax Maxxum 5D it takes great pictures, but I can't figure out how to get the LCD monitor to show the picture I am taking...it is on a blue screen with functions and settings, but I can't find where in those settings to change it back to seeing the view by looking at the screen, I always have to look through the view finder to shoot a pic. Hope you can help, Thanks a lot, Cath


To see the picture you want to take on the screen, your camera needs to have a feature called "live view". I'm not sure if your camera has that feature. It's a relatively new feature on more expensive cameras. Check your owner's manual. ... Konica Minolta Dynax 5D / Maxxum 5D Digital Camera
