Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

Which Canons have the facility to connect to an external wire circuit for shutter actuation? Many Thanks Brian Wilkins

Answers :

I believe that all of Canon's digital SLRs, including the digital Rebels, have this feature. I don't think any of the compact digital (PowerShot) models have the port for a wired switch, but some have a remote infrared (wireless) shutter actuation capability. Most of the digital SLRs have the wireless option also (with the exception of a couple of the Rebel series).
\015\012Finally, quite a few of both the digital SLRs and the compact digital cameras can be remotely actuated while connected to a computer, using the software that comes with the cameras.

I have verified my Canon A95 drains batteries by doing an amperage test. Starting with new batteries I install them in the camera and then layer a thin copper wire then piece of paper then copper wire and close the battery door. Touching the wires together closes the circuit and the camera functions. With the wires appart I measure the camera amps. The camera measures 0.6 amps when on and 0.14 amps when off. Doing the same test with my A80 Canon yeilds 0.45 amos when on and zero amps when off. T

Black LCD Canon A60 Cute camera, many nice features. Installed a Lexar 256mb CF. Worked well until just past the warranty period. Now nada, just a black screen, or scrambled LCD. If you squeeze the shutter, wysiwyg--a black photo. Contacted Canon and essentially they offered me an "upgrade" to their A70 for $150 plus $10 for shipping. And a 3 month warranty. Any advice or do I have an expensive paperweight?

Shutter will fire intermitantly on Canon 40D. It focuses but will not fire but if pressed repeatedly it will fire after several shutter presses. I have changed batteries, I have swapped to other lenses (including a Canon lens) but still have the problem. Any suggestions or does this go back to Canon ? : (

Hi, I have a two year old Canon PowerShot SX1. Recently began to think my shutter speeds have been on the low side, based on ISO, aperture, and general lighting conditions outside. Went out and purchased a Canon PowerShot SX130 just to compare. Took about 25 shots with each, same subjects each time, same settings, same position, about 15 seconds apart. Discovered that, on average, the SX130's shutter speeds were over 3 times higher than the SX1 for proper exposures. For instance, at ISO 100

My canon xl-1 video fell and the screw in metal lens cap was dislocated from the lens housing. Inside, the lens is attached (soldered) to the cap by a bunch of color coded wiring. It can be repaired. But what is the matching order of the color coded wiring inside canon xl-1 16x zoom lens?

Canon Squeal I recently bought a Canon A1 35mm film camera off eBay. The outside is in amazing condition but the seller did not use the camera for a very long time so it had not been lubricated. I put a new battery in it and pressed the shutter release button and heard a squeal and the shutter was staying open way too long. I'm not experienced enough to trust lubricating it myself and wanted to know if you did this in your store and if you could give me an estimate on how much it would cost. I'm

This is common on the A series Canon cameras. It's a flywheel governor on the side of the mirror box that needs to be lubricated. We do that for $48. Let us know if we can help.\015\012\015\012Crystal Camera Repair\015\012Ashevil ... Digital Cameras

The shutter speed priority setting on my Canon 40D keeps jumping to a different speed that I haven't set. E.g - set at 200, jumps to 25 when I go to take a photo. I have spoken to Canon regarding the problem and they have suggested that I clear the user settings. This initially solved the problem for all of an hour, but the problem has now started up again. I'll probably be sending it in, as I think it might be a problem with the hardware, just thought I'd check here first. Any suggestio
