Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Wanting to use add on flash

\015 I picked up a canon 350d xt rebel and the first owner stated that he droped the camera and the flash stopped working but the camera still takes good photo. when you put the camera in the auto setting and you need the flash it will not come up and you get the message errer 99. I wanted to know if i use a add on flash would the solve my problem\015

Answers :

The "error 99" is a general error on Canon cameras meaning "something's gone wrong and I don't know what to do about it". If you get them all the time, the camera is effectively dead and must go back to Canon for a service repair (circa £175 if I remember correctly).
\015\012If the error 99 only happens when you try to pop up the flash, but otherwise the camera can take good pictures, then yes, an external flash unit could well solve your problem. With an external flash on the hot-shoe, the internal flash is completely bypassed and the camera will never try to pop it up.
\015\012I recommend taking your camera to a shop such as Jessops and ask to try out a flash gun to be sure.

The camera is set to "Vivid", manual, auto focus, and iso 100. From the "manual flash" menu I should be able to select either full, 1/4. 1/16 or 1/64 of the output.

I have a cannon rebel xs EOS first I want to get it back to Factory settings how do I do that and secondly when I want to take a pic say at a concert without the flash they turn blurry but if I use the flash then it turns out great

Grainy Pictures I have had my olympus stylus 710 for about 6 months and have been noticing more and more grainy pictures once developed. They are usually when taken indoors. It doesn't look grainy on the LCD screen but when they are developed it is very grainy. This even happens when the flash is used. Any suggestions? Is there a setting I can change for higher quality pictures? I have a gig memory so I don't care if I am going to be using a lot of space. Got 7.1 megapixels and want to use

It could be a problem with CCD, and that can just be replaced in a service centre. ... Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera
