Both rebels XT & XSI appear to exhibit over all performance issues. my question....can the cameras firmware / software become corrupt????


Answers :

One of the easiest ways to corrupt a camera is to download pics to your computer via USB connection, then disconnect without using the "safely remove hardware" function. Also, when downloading firmware updates, if you do not follow the procedure instructions to the "enth" degree, you can actually end up with a "dead" 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.

Dpi issue In the f-Mode menu I have set my camera to the highest available quality, ie: 6Mf. However, when I open the pictures on my PC (in any of the proprietary imaging software), it shows as having a resolution of only 72 dpi.

Does Canon have a problem with their software? When I try to download photos the camera is recognized by the software but then the window does not provide software available to download, even though I have downloaded tons of photos prior to this problem.

The tech cleaned up some other issues, but is at a loss to figure out why the software will not download photos. We have spent litteraly hours on this
