It is not that the display switches to viewfinder after some seconds, it is that the camera goes to sleep mode. So you need to go to Menu, then look for the Auto Power off option, and choose the timeout value. You can switch it off entirely, which means that your camera would never go into sleep mode, you'd have to manually hit the OFF switch to switch the ...

I will assume no. The first one seems to be a filter mounted converter and you need to have a lens with the specific diameter to fit it. By the looks of it, I don't think any DSLR camera lens are that small. It looks like something you mount on a GoPro or similar. The second lens seems to be as cheap as they get, https://www.amazon.com/Xit-XT5837XTL-58mm-...

It appears your sensor has a 'dead line' across it. An entire line of pixels is not being read out. The sensor is not repairable and would need to be replaced. Unfortunately, the cost of replacing a sensor in the 1100D is probably more than the camera is worth. This is because a sensor replacement is very labor intensive. The camera must be almost ...

Sigma produces same lenses for many different mounts, such as Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, micro 4/3, etc... If you bought Sigma lens for Canon, than you don't need an adapter. If you didn't... well, why didn't you? It might be possible to attach it with adapter, and might not. but that depends on the particular mount your lens is compatible with (for example ...

Kenko Video Tele Converter KVC-2011 2.0x Nope. Video cameras tend to have smaller sensors and smaller mounts, so this won't work. Even if you could mechanically couple it, you'd get vignetting from the smaller size. A better bet, designed for dSLRs, would be a proper Kenko HD DGX 2.0x or (optically much better/less expensive) 1.4x TC for Canon EF/EF-S mount ...

I would take your camera to an independent camera repair shop to see if they can disable that switch to leave it in the "on" position. Canon would never repair it that way but it could be a simple fix. Here is a photo of the battery door micro-switch in my SL1. Is this what your switch looks like?

Set 'Custom Function IV: Operation Others → C.Fn-7: Shutter/AE Lock Button' to option '1: AE lock/AF'. It's on page 221 of the EOS Rebel T3/1100D Instruction Manual. Pressing the shutter button physically (and hopefully via the Darktable app - I've never used Darktable rather than Canon's own software to shoot tethered) will only initiate metering, but not ...

Shutter Count from Dire Studio works for me on all of my post-Digic II Canon EOS cameras. Your Canon EOS 1100D is listed as compatible. Canon cameras released since the end of 2014 do not allow shutter count functionality from the remote control interface and are not compatible with Shutter Count. Update Dire Studios has released ShutterCount version 3 (...

Fotodiox makes a variety of lens mount adapter rings, they have a Pentax K-> Canon EOS one, and I believe it's sold by B&H and Adorama. And there's always eBay. However, you will want to do some research and find out the effects of adapting a lens like this. You're most likely going to lose the ability to do wide-open metering, shooting in any modes ...

No, if it isn't detected as being attached, then there wouldn't be any way to communicate with it since it is effectively not plugged in.

Not a lot comes to mind on the camera body side, but several things may result in blurry/out of focus photos on the lens side of this problem. Auto-focus switch set to On? Image stabilizing switch set to On? Image stabilizing malfunction? Smudges/dirt on the front element of the lens? Smudges/dirt on the rear element of the lens? Auto-focus malfunction? ...

This happened to me. After using the camera for a while I found when I switched to Jpeg+Raw I copied the files over to the folder on my PC and had two jpegs. This puzzled me as I knew I had used that once before and my PC had no problem with raw files, and I had .CR2 files on my hard drive to prove it. I was convinced the Camera was not now recording the ...

==>> Service center. I'm afraid this is not something you can fix yourself. It should be covered by the warranty, so I think it's your best bet. Sometimes it's just not worth buying cheap stuff...

It sounds like your flash is broken. Since it would probably cost more to have it fixed than what you paid for it, it's time to buy a new flash. Getting two years out of a third party Chinese flash is not too bad if you've used it regularly. Only getting six months is catching the short end of the straw. You can try to contact the seller and see if they ...

tl;dr: It looks like an AF system problem; servicing required. Details: Unless in LiveView, your camera uses a separate AF sensor. Its faster and more precise than liveview one. Look closely at a mirror - notice there are two mirrors actually. Half of the light goes to the viewfinder, another one is bounced to an AF sensor. Here's a picture: https://cdn....

As far as I know, the most reliable way to find out the amount of shutter actuations for the Canon EOS 1100D (also known in Americas as Canon EOS Rebel T3 and in Japan as Canon EOS Kiss X50) is through the installation of the firmware hack called Magic Lantern. In my blog post How to Check Shutter Count on Canon EOS 1100D (Rebel T3) I described the whole ...
