Having problems with your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera ?

When I take pictures the left side of the picture (about of 1/4) is blurry. I have used different lenses and this still happens. What could it be?


Answers :

Either the sensor element is loose or some crud has got onto it. This need professional attention. At least take the lens off, set the camear to cleaning mode (which makes the mirror come up so that you can see the sensor at the back, and have a look at it. Be very careful not to breathe on the sensor or to get dust on it.

No picture I have a FinePix S2 Pro that I have had a couple years. Yesterday when I took pictures with it every picture is black when viewed on the LCD screen. The lens cap is off and I have tried several different lenses and memory cards, adjusted the ISO, tried it with and without a flash, but still the same result. I can view previously recorded pictures, so I know its not the LCD screen. Could the CCD have gone bad? Any thoughts by anyone?

The last time I used my PowerShot S3 IS it worked just fine. I went to get it this time, and I could only preview saved photos. When I turned it to take a picture, their was only a black screen? Other than the white type, just not picture. And yes, I had the lense off. I did also try new batteries and it didn't make a difference.

Black screen We are having the problem many others are having on this website. We were in the middle of our trip to Monterey this weekend when the screen went completely black and no more pictures can be taken. We could use the menu & could look at pictures already taken, so we have to conclude that the LCD is NOT the actual problem; however, we aren't sure why we can't take anymore pictures. We dumped all the pictures on the camera onto our computer thinking it might be "full", but still no

Harsh shadows we are trying to take pictures for a friend's small wedding - at the rehearsal today we practiced picture taking with both a Canon Rebel XSI (using both the regular lense and adding a telephoto lense) and a Canon PowerShot S5-IS. The problem is that we are getting a lot of pictures that have a 'hard' shadow on the people in them. It doesn't appear to be a regular shadow because it doesn't 'land' on the different surfaces behind them, but is more like a shadow attached to them. Any

Camera flash i generally use my camera on auto mode so i don't have to play around with buttons! however after loaning my camera to my sister for a week my flash is no longer as great as it was!! I used to take pics and the flash would light 2-3 times giving a great, bright picture. It now flashes once before the pic is snapped giving a dark picture. If i push the flash button on the left side of the scrolling circle it goes from red eye flash (which flashes once) to no flash! I'm almost certain

Uneven flash Hi, my Nikon d40x has a problem with its flash when I rotate it, for example, to take a picture of someone standing. Only the left side of the frame illuminates, and the right side of the picture is dark. However, when I use the camera horizontally, the flash works fine and illuminates evenly. What am I doing wrong?


Look carefully at your images taken with flash... on the horizontal image is the lower part of the image slighty darker and have a rounded fall off at the edges? Is the vertical image dark side a straight hard line or is there a rounding to the top ... Nikon D40X Digital SLR Camera Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Wavy lines I have a first year digital rebel using the 18-55mm lense that came with it. Whenever I shoot a photo of a home, the siding and the roof lines are wavy. Also when taking interior photos, using the pop up flast, my pictures seem to turn out a little dark.


For the wavy problems, try eliminating camera processsing by taking the photos in raw format and viewing them with photoshop or some other photo software. If the waves are gone, it's the processing/compression algorithims on the camera. For pop-ups ... Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

Blurry pics The last time I used this camera, most of the pictures came out very blurry. I had to try to hold the camera completely still to keep them reasonably clear. These were just pictures of people, no sports, etc. It was on the usual auto setting. Even the ones that weren't too blurry were very grainy. It has worked fine in the past and I have never dropped it or gotten it more than rained-on wet. What could be the problem?

Recently I had it formatted on a computer and when I inserted it back to my camera, the capacity went down to 590 pictures! i thought it caught a virus or something so I scanned it, then formatted it on the camera. but the display still says I got 590 shots left. so I reformatted it on another PC, and on Properties it says 0 usage so i'm positive there's nothing wrong with the card.
