Having problems with your Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera ?

I would like to know why I keep getting a busy notice on my canon xsi


Answers :

Generally, it means these two things:
\015\012
\015\012The memory card is in use, saving pictures.
\015\012
\015\012You may have the picture resolution set too high, or saving in "raw".
\015\012Change resolution to somthing lower, such as 6MP (megapixels) for now, and go to a higher resolution, like 10.... in a month or so.
\015\012
\015\012Also Canon switched memory cards from CF to SD/SDHC.
\015\012
\015\012Look at the memory card and look for a number within a circle. That is the speed rating. "6" is the highest rating (fastest) you may have a "4" .... use only a "6" in that camera. A new rating method is emerging in the industry ( 1 ~ 10) ... in the future, use a "10", when it becomes available.
\015\012
\015\012I hope this helps!

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?


Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

I have a Canon MV600. when switched on to 'camera', all I get is a blank screen. Occasionally it will work normally. I suspect the iris is not opening and the iris motor sounds a bit rough. do you have any idea what the problem is likely to be and how much this repair is likely to cost. Incidentally, I also had this same problem with an older analogue Canon model so it would seem to be a common failing.

When I turn it on a get a rapidly flashing green light on the back, and when I try to connect I get the message on the computer that there is no supporting software.
