XTI won't turn off
Aug 11, 2009

I was taking some RAW Plus JPEG pictures. I forgot about the RAW and turned off the camera before the images were completely saved. The camera LCD displayed

Recording Remaining image: 2 (with rotating circular display)

After 5 minutes it was still doing this. I turned the unit back on and off repeatedly with no luck. Formatting is also held up by the above display. I may have corrupted the card but why won't format work?

Replaced battery and this killed the stuck display. Not surprisingly I lost the last two images. But problem solved.

Should I be more careful with shutdown? Do Raw saves occasionally take a very long time > 20 secs each?
