Cannon Rebel XTI 10.1 need help

I bought my wife the cannon rebel 10.1mp for christmas and I'm not an electronics guy so I need some help. When we turn it on to take a picture the lcd screen only shows a setting screen with a gray background and as soon as you take the picture it will display the picture you just took but what I would like to do is see the picture through the lcd screen before I take it how do I go about doing this. I dont like having to look through the little peep hole I would like to view things on the lcd monitor. Are other camera lets us do this. Sorry for the lenghty post.

I read the destructions, put almost just as much reading time into that book on this issue as a diesel power magazine so my wife was impressed. Couldnt find anything on this changing lcd screen to a view type mode.

I don't know then man. I'm not even close to being "electronic savy". Just thought I'd throw out the simple fix, sometimes that's the only one I'll miss.

this got me curious. i don't have this camera, but i really would like to have one. i have a canon point and shoot. anyhow, i looked on the canon rebel xti owners manual on the canon website, and at the bottom of page 32, in the section "how to shoot" in the paragraph titled "holding the camera" it says.... "the LCD Viewfinder cannot be used as a viewfinder for shooting." i'm suprised. i'd think in a camera like that you could do just about anything. they must have had some reason for doing it that way. the only way to take pics with that camera seems to be putting your eye to the viewfinder, which triggers the LCD screen to dim while you take your shot. you can set the length of time the last shot displays on the screen for your review, but you probably already read that part. sorry for the disappointing news.

You cannot use the LCD as a viewfinder on most SLR cameras. Canon just recently released the EOS 40D with "Live View" that allows this, but the Rebel Xti does not. Just get used to using the viewfinder, you'll be much better off.

These kinds of cameras are NOT "point and shoots", their much more professional. Only buy one if you know what you're doing, or plan to learn.
