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

Hi... I have Canon 500D DSLR...While shotting in video mode 640+480 i got flash automatically. Is it possible to get flash while shooting in video mode.Please help


Answers :

No camera flash can operate in video mode. It would have to flash 15 or 30 times a second. It takes longer than a second for the flash circuitry to charge up each time.

You can get a separate lighting unit for video which provides constant illumination. This does not require any connection to the camera, it just provides light, and the camera will adjust exposure automatically as usual.

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

I have a Fuji FinePix S2700 and I want to use my camera to record video but while recording if I try to zoom in or out the picture gets blurry, if I move a muscle my image gets blurry, if the person or thing I am shooting moves it gets blurry. I'm not sure if I need to change a setting on the camera or if that is just the way the video works with the camera..help please?

I got a new SP800UZ. I have never used a camera, other than point and shoot. Are there "how to videos" or classes I can take? I read the manual and don't even understand the jargon. I'm really in kindergarten here. I signed up for a community ed class on digital photography, but it isn't "how to use your camera". It is more of a "how to get great photos, IF you KNOW HOW to use your camera". Please help!

I have new Nikon D90 with 18-105 Nikon lens. The only problem with the camera, when shooting potraits in dim light without flash, the pictures get black artefacts throughout the faces and skins. I used different lenses and reset the camera setting to the factory original, but no help. Thank you for solving the problem... Hamid Jakarta, Indonesia


This has nothing to do with the camera, but instead it has to do with the lens you are using. The standard lens you are using has an aperture of f/4.5 which is common across many lenses. If you wish to shoot in low light you need a lower "f-stop". ... Nikon D90 Digital Camera with 18-105mm lens
