Having problems with your Canon Digital Cameras ?

I am using a canon 350d camera. when I use my efs 18-55mm lense there is an Error 99. Is there a problem with my camera or lense and how can I correct it myself or i need to get professional help. Thank you.


Answers :

'Error\015\012 99' indicates some problem with the AF contacts. This is a common error\015\012 in Canon lenses. It could indicate a very simple problem like dirty \015\012contacts or a much serious one like the breakage of USM cable.
As a \015\012first step, you can try cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal \015\012contacts between the lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to\015\012 hold the body facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning \015\012both the lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try \015\012shooting. If the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an\015\012 authorized service center.

I would like to find a video camera that will allow me to freeze frames and get a single image from the video. I take animal pictures and using a regular camera is frustrating. If I could get 10 seconds of video, then take out a single image for a picture, it would help. I do not need more than 1 megaPixel quality. Thanks for the help


Sounds like you just mostly have problems with the camera not taking the picture as soon as you push the button. There are some ways to get a single frame from a camera video file, but I think the best way to get what you really need is to have a ca ... Digital Cameras

First of all, don't use the flash...it's only good for a short distance. Obviously, you need a fast shutter speed to stop the action. To get this to happen while in auto mode, you will need to set the ISO to a higher number such as 800 or 1600. You w ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

I have a Caonon 40D. I thought I was having a lens problem at first. However after using 2 other lenses I have found out it is my Camera. No matter how clear and crisp the image is in the view finder. After the photo is taken and loaded into PS4. The image is blurry and unsharp. I have reset all camera settings to factory with Canon. And I am still getting the same results. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.


It is probably due to dust on the sensor, or sensor alignment not properly done. In both cases you have to take the camera to a Canon dealer for servicing. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
