Weird Canon 7D artifact? [more inside]
Can the LCD screen on the Canon Rebel XTi be used to preview a shot before taking a picture like on most standard digital cameras? I heard you can do it on manual mode, but can't figure it out.
Can someone with a canon powershot SD400 walk me through the steps I need to take to delete all the pictures on my SD card? Bonus Question: Is there something I can do to reset the camera to it's default settings? [more inside]
Hello. I just found out the new Canon D20 digital SLR we use in the office doesn't allow one to use the LCD for framing - it can only be used for playback. This seems odd to me, since the Nikon digital SLR (and every single compact digital camera) I had used previously did. Is there some kind of firmware update or hack that would allow the LCD to be used as a finder? It would be tremendously helpful to be able to use it as such, especially when the icons relating to camera state etc. are all superimposed on top of the image on the PCD. I'm surprised that this camera doesn't allow that, when other digital SLRs (and all of Canon's lower-end cameras) do.
When taking photos with my digital camera (Canon Powershot A75) images often look great on the LCD and then not-so-great when I actually get them onto my computer. Most notably, when taking B&W photos in relatively low-light they will look fantastic on the LCD and then just BLACK on my computer. I can usually make the image sort-of useable by photoshoping the levels, but then it gets real grainy. Is there anything that I can do to get a more accurate preview from the LCD or do I just have to accept the fact that it lies? Tips on dealing with this? [more inside]
