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

Can't Shoot At An Angle

\015 For some reason whenever I try to shoot my XTI at an angle it won't shoot. It just beeps and it appears the lens tries to focus and that's it. I was trying to shoot some moon and stars shots with my tripod etc, but if I tilted the camera back past say 10 o'clock it just won't shoot. Any ideas?????\015

Answers :

What mode are you shooting in? If you are in almost any mode except M(anual), the camera may not be able to lock focus once you point it a relatively dark area of the sky. See if the Focus Confirmation light in the viewfinder is flashing. If it is, the shutter will not release. See page 162 in the manual for options, and page 71 for shooting Bulb exposures.

Wide problem The moment the 3200 is switched on the wide angle indicator shows and the lens goes into wide and then tele. After this you cant click. Occassionally, on switching up the wide does not happen and shots can be taken and wide switch works. Switch it off and on again and the same problem happens. As long as the camera is on and the wide does not come up everything is fine.

Viewfinder I just got my *ist DS Monday, and this is my first DSLR. I have a general question, which I hope you guys can help me with. The image framing from the viewfinder is significantly different from the finished photo. The finished product always has a wider angle of view from what I am seeing while framing the shot. At the widest setting, there isn't much difference. At full zoom with an attached Nikon 6t, the object I am shooting is large in the view finder, but it appears half sized


Viewfinder magnification has nothing to do with this. \015\012It's a framing accuracy, viewfinder coverage issue. \015\012\015\012\015\012Viewfinder magnification has to do with how large the focusing/framing field appears, optically, to your eye. Pe ... Pentax *ist DS Digital Camera

62 size I am assuming that the 62 size will be perfect and it will leave the lens as close to the filter as possible? Is this what I should be shooting for? What if I want to add a macro or a wide-angle lens? Would I need any more adapters to attach another lens, or does it dpend on the lens?


If you want to add other lenses, either macro, wide angle, telephoto or just filters, they go directly on the adapter. That's why the thread size (62mm) is important because that's the best fit for that adapter. If you get other sizes you can still u ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20 Digital Camera

Automatic shoot? I need to know how to get my camera to "take pictures" on its own for a posed family photo. I know I should be able to set it up so that there are a few seconds before the picture takes, (so that I can get into the picture,) but I do not have my owner's manual and cant figure it out.
