Having problems with your Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera ?

My Rebel XS is VERY slow after about 100 shots

\015 After I take about 100 shots with my Rebel XS, it slows down to the point that it really isn't working anymore. After 100, I average about 1 shot/minute max. I get the busy message no matter what I do. I've tried flash, no flash and all of the manual and pre-programmed settings (and automatic). Nothing makes it pick up speed again. The battery doesn't tell me that it's low for several hundred more shots, but something isn't working. Is this a battery problem or a camera processing problem?\015

Answers :

Could be a card problem. How large is the card? Is it at least a class 4? Is it already full of pictures that need to be downloaded to make room? Has it ever been formatted in the camera?(This will erase it so download any pics first)

There is a minimal focusing distance for all lenses. If you move closer to the subject than that distance then the camera won't focus on it. Check you lens manual for minimal focusing distance. It is 11 inches for Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, fo ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

Focus problems I have 2 digital cameras already so I know to hold the button down 1/2 way for focusing. The Nikon is new. I HATE manuals. I am having trouble focusing on close up shots. They are either real blurry or slightly out of focus. It seems the shutter speed is so slow that any movement of my hand ruins the shot. I can take a shot of something, a plant for instance, pulled in fairly close. One shot may be ok and the next one is blurry

There are two likely reasons for the blurry pictures. One possibility is, as you surmised, a slow shutter speed. Try mounting the camera on a tripod or other stable support. You might also try turning on the flash.The other reason is focu ... Digital Cameras

Recnetly while doing a photo shoot, the camera which is a Canon Rebel XP suddenly began to take shots that showed only the very top of the shot with the remaining showing all black. Initially, I thought perhaps it was the battery but have tested that and it's not the problem. This particular camera has had approximately 10,000 photos shot from it. Any ideas?

I'm trying to shoot HDR photos using my XSi/450D. From the menu two I've set the AEB EV step range as 0, -2 and 2. From here, though, I don't know what to do. If I go directly from the menu to shooting, I don't get any automatic shots, but rather single, individual shots based on the current exposure settings. Help. I've scanned my 45D manual, DVD tutorial, etc. and cannot find my missing step to create a series of AEB shots. Many Thanks, Robert

Digital Camera Canon Sure Shot - great pictures, but too slow response/recovery between shots. I go for a shot of a child and they're out of the picture before the lens snaps. It is even worse, of course, if the flash is in use. Getting a picture I want is a matter of pure luck or of takinig only vases on tables. Help.

Sloooooowww speed I LOVED my 20D the first two years I had it. Then last spring it started slowing down - I was no longer able to fire off shots like before in multi-shot mode. Then one day it wouldn't stop clicking off shots. I turned it off, took the battery out and let it sit for a bit. Then it stopped working altogether and I got an error 99. It went into the shop and Ritz Camera said they fixed it - but they didn't. It worked one hour and did the same thing. I loaded a firmware update on it

Hi, I have two Cannon 40D Cameras and am experiencing problems with both at the moment. One Camera is very slow after pushing the button to take a photo. I have checked all of the batteries and this is not the problem. The other camera will take 4/5 shots without a problem then as I am taking the shot I feel like the camera flutters, the lcd screen shows an error symbol and says the contacts between the lens needs cleaning. When I turn the camera on and off it fixes the problem temporarily but i

I bought digital Canon EOS Rebel XT two years ago, and I have really big problem with AF. I got one half of the pictures fuzzy. Sometimes the green light is on, I took the picture and it is fuzzy. Next shot is fine. I never have this kind of problem with Canon Rebel ( not digital). Now I can't rely on Auto Focus at all. Please explain to me where is a problem. Thanks, Irene

There are few things that I noticed. My err 99 is displayed with or without any lens attached, I did this to fault isolate the problem and it is on the camera body.
