Canon Rebel XSi mirror problem

\015 My Rebel XSi is facing mirror problems recently. In full auto mode it works fine. In manual mode, when I press the shutter button, the mirror moves up and gets stuck there. After a very long time (15 seconds or so) the mirror just comes down and there is no image recorded. If I press the shutter button again, when the mirror gets stuck, then the shutter opens up, records the image and the mirror comes down. Mirror lock up option is NOT enabled, but still I face this problem. In auto mode I find no issues.\015\012Has anyone faced an issues like this? Can someone help me out?\015

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


It's your flash.  If you diffuse the light from your flash, you will reduce this problem, but not eliminate it entirely.  You can diffuse it by putting some moist (so it sticks, and also to make it translucent) thin paper across the flash. ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

I have a canon rebel xsi that is not taking pictures on auto focus. It will take pictures on manual focus, but they're blurry. I changed my lens to a bigger one to see if it was the lens or camera, and it's the camera. I had the same problem with the other lens. I've tried cleaning it & turning the lens focus ring but is still doing it. Anyone know how to fix this problem?


Try cleaning the lens contacts on the camera body and on the lens.This maybe the problem, it is not making contact with the lens zoom motor. ... Digital Cameras

Camera shake I have a Canon eos digital rebel xsi kit and struggle with camera shake using this model. Is there a setting I should be using to avoid this problem? What do recommend for a clean, crisp shot?


If your lens is equipped with a stabiliser, ensure it is switched on. In darker conditions, try increasing the ISO to get faster shutter speeds. Be aware that shooting at the telephoto end greatly increases your chance of camera shake too. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I own a Canon EOS Rebel Xsi. I have recharged the battery and put it in the camera. However, the camera won't turn on. Shortly before having this problem, I seem to recall a message in red letters on the display that said something to the effect that my battery pack was bad. I have a sinking feeling that my battery is good, but there is something wrong with my camera. Can you recommend what I should do?


You can buy a new battery for around five pounds ($8). I found some straight away on Amazon. It has to be worth getting one just to see if it actually is your battery that's bad. Rechargeable batteries don't last forever. ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

EOS Utility I purchased a Rebel Xsi, and installed the software. Upon connecting my camera to my computer, and launching the EOS Utility, the options to download the images, select images, or camera settings are shaded out. In order to transfer pictures, I have to go into "My Computer", open up the camera and copy and paste it. I have updated all of the software from Canon's website with the June 2009 updates, and the problem persists. Thanks for the help.


I got the same problem updating the EOS Utility. The version on the original SXi CD is 2.4.0.1. The upgrade is version 2.6.1. I suggest you to uninstall all the updated software. Or at least the EOS Utility. Go to the folder <C:\\Documents and Se ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera

My canon rebel xsi was working a month ago. Today I took it out from the case and found it was not reading the card (8gd transand). It had been working fine until last time I used it mid of April. Thought it was a card problem, I went out to buy a new one (8gb sdhc), put it in and it asked for reformat. Proceed to reformat the card, but it says it can't reformat it and ask to change the card. Put in the old card (which was loaded with picture I previouly took), it asks the same thing. I'm 100% s

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

Broken MIrror? well your sub-mirror is broken inside of the camera, i had the same problem, it just happens by itself after extended use of the camera, and it is not a means for recall by canon so you have to deal with it yourself.  this website can fix it for $130 and they will replace it with a metal piece so it doesn't happen again(original piece is weak plastic) I just read the above solution.  It looks like I may have the same problem - I have easily taken 50,000 pictures with my Canon Rebe
