    My 450D is about 2 years old, never had any problems, never been dropped...

    All of a sudden it is freezing when I press the shutter. It remains frozen until I turn it off and on again. I checked batteries and firmware updates; all fine.

    I also noticed this morning that if I try take a picture in Live mode this does not happen - the picture takes normally.

    Any ideas?

    I had something similar and it turned out to be "shutter lock".
    The first pic the camera would hang, turn off and turn on and then it would work fine for the rest of the day...

    Is mirror lockup not maybe enabled under the custom functions mienu? What happens when you press the shutter button a second time right after pressing it the 1st time?

    Also, you can try to take the battery out for 10min or so and then put it back.

    You could also reset the camera to factory default -> should have an option somewhere in the menus.
