PictBridge printing and viewing your images on a TV

PictBridge Printing

The Digital Rebel XS is PictBridge compatible. Just plug the USB cable from the camera directly into the USB PictBridge connector found on the front of many modern photo printers and instructions will appear on the camera's LCD screen. For instance the Canon MP970 is a PictBridge compatible model.

When the camera and printer are connected through PictBridge, the camera's LCD is used to select the images and options (Paper size, Borderless printing, Trimming, Photo Effects, Imprint, Number of prints) for your print job. Usually it's as simple as selecting the photo and pressing the camera's Set button, then choosing print.


Viewing your images on a TV

Using the AV cable that comes with the XS, you can share your photos with friends and family on any TV set that features a standard "RCA" video in port. Just plug the cable into the Video Out terminal and plug the RCA connector into your TV. You can select between NTSC or PAL formats. When you are using the video connector, whatever is normally shown on the LCD is visible on your TV (Menus and all).
