My XSi is acting wonky.  It takes photos fine, displays photos on the LED screen fine, but only intermittently displays the settings screen and when it does the top half of the settings info is missing.  Also when I can get the screen to display, when I bring the camera up to my eye that screen is supposed to shut off to avoid blinding the user.  IT REMAINS ON.  Any suggestions?

I have a Canon XSi and recently it started giving issues. I tried with multiple lenses, both in AF and MF modes, but it won't go away. When I try to take a photo by pressing the shutter button nothing would happen. Even after multiple attempts of pressing the shutter button nothing happens. Sometimes this gets fixed if I zoom the lens back and forth. When that doesn't work, changing the mode in the Camera helps. Any thoughts on what I should be looking into to fix this issue? Thanks in advance.

I bought a new EFS-24mm F2.8 STM lens yesterday from BestBuy for my Canon 450D.  Only MF is recognized. AF does not show on the screen.  AF/MF switch on AF.  Shooting mode AF continuous or AI Servo. None of the modes ( A/P/TV/AV) recognizes AF. In P/TV mode screen shows F 0. In AV mode nothing is shown. Did any one had this issue with this lens ( AF not being recognized)

I've been reading about cameras for several weeks to decide on what to replace my Rebel 450D with. My primary reason for purchase/upgrade is to get into deep sky astrophotography. Because of its good SNR, high dynamic range, and full frame capability I've decided to purchase the 6D. Upon a little more searching though, I've seen the most recent rumors of the 6D Mk II pointing at an April announcement which I take to mean a June-ish release assuming it doesn't slip to the right again. The key...

My granddaughter is interested in my old 450d as her first DSLR as I updated to a 700d when the old 18-55 kit lens died. A local 2nd hand store is selling the 28-90 for less than £30 and with 12 months guarantee.  So as an entry level walk-around lens any views, any gotcha's and what should I look out for?  I see there have been several variations of this lens but I can't see through the window which one it is. Plan to buy later today (UK).  Thanks.

Dear Canonisti, I am currently having a hefty love affair with Olympus' mirrorless M10. Nevertheless, I feel that under many circumstances my Canon gear gave me at least as nice color rendition. I mainly shot my 450D, 50D, and last 550D (T2i) in "standard" picture mode. Now I wonder: Will any modern Canon DSLR (or maybe even EOS-M) have more or less the same nice color rendition, or did things change over the years? Actually from time to time I check image galleries, e.g. here at dpreview;...

Hi, This is my first post in dpreview. I have always been reading on the discussions here but I need some suggestion on my first big purchase. I bought my first DSLR in 2009 - Canon Rebel XSi along with 18-55 & 55-250. Things changed for good when I purchased 50mm f1.8 in 2010. I just simply feel in love with it and started taking portraits. I realized then that this is what my focus will be - Portraits and Primes. Whats bad about Rebel XSI is that the Max ISO is 1600 and it become highly...

Hi, I have recently stared photography and am using a 450d after much deliberation. My main gripe is not having enough zoom with the standard lens. Rather than carrying around multiple lenses I am looking to get a second hand 'all purpose' lens and have decided on sigma as these seem to be available at a good price. Here comes the confusion, with so many letters in the names I'm not sure what to go for, could anybody help advise which of these seems best, the 28-300 seems better value to me...
