Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm and EF 75-300mm Lenses ?

Exposure number in Canon does not change

\015 The remaining exposure number in Canon Rebel (using Compact Flash card) does not change as you take more pictures. Using a 4 GB SanDisk Ultra II card the exposure number remains at 999. Other cards, e.g. same brand but only 2 GB, the numbers do change as they should. Any suggestions?\015

Answers :

Due to the age of the camera, the Ultra 2 CF card may be using a different architecture than your other CF cards. In other words, the card is incompatible with the camera.

One other problem may be that the camera is not designed to recognize a card which is of a larger capacity.

As I cannot find the 300D on Canon's site it is difficult to find exact specifications as to the abilities of the camera, as to what type of CF card it will accept, what the largest capacity it will accept, etc.

A more fixable problem would be either that the card is not formatted properly - which may be possible through the camera itself. Please try to navigate the camera's menu to find a format option. If not, you can insert it into a CF card reader and attempt formatting it that way. Please see Here for formatting through a camera.

Also, try Here for yet another possible explanation of your problem, as #6.

If the camera is meant to take the capacity and type of CF card, and is not damaged, the only other explanation is that it is write-protected. As I do not know the exact features of your CF card, I cannot say whether or not it has a manual write-protection switch. If it does, it would be a small sliding piece of plastic or metal on the side of the card which toggles the write-protection feature. It may also be write-protected as a file system, in which case you will need to format it.

If the card refuses to format due to a write-protection, you will need to remove the write-protection from the card first and then format it.

The following picture shows a CF card with a write-protection switch on the left hand side.

With a 2gb compact flash in my canon 300D set to the highest image resolution with no compression I can fit 620 images on the card at iso100 it follows that the 4gb card would fit somewhere in the region of 1200 pictures.

if i set the image size to small with compression a 512MB card will fit 500 images and the 2GB displays the same symptoms as your 4GB card.

The display will show 999 as this is the highest number it can show until there are fewer than 999 exposures remaining at your current settings :)

also tested this on a Canon 30D to find the same thing happens

then with a canon powershot G9
set to 5MP on fine or normal quality a 2gb SD card holds well over 1000 images

Nothing to worry about just plenty of space :D

I just lpurchased a Canon 5D MarkII. Originally the LSD showed single photos when I reviewed past shots. Then it changed to showing four shots and now it changed to nine shots. The instruction manual on this doesn't get me back showing single shots. That manual is worthless in its explanation. How do I solve this problem? For future reference do you have a phone number I can call to get help when I need it? If you charge for calls so be it. I just need to get familiar with this

Hi, I have a Canon T2i Rebel. When i put the camera in "M" (totally manual), the image doesnt appear in the LCD screen.

Only in the manual mode the image doesnt show, and the pictures also appear completely black.

I can't seem to get my autofocus to work on my new Canon T1. The mode dial is switched to full auto, the fous mode switch is on AF, and the Image Stabilizer switch is in the "on" position.

Over exposure The exposure settings on the camera have suddenly become fixed - I can't change them either through fixing shutter speed, OEV, or any other settings. Even tried a factory reset by selecting 'initialize' from the menu, but the problem persists. High or low exposure settings are visible on the viewfinder (i.e. changing the settings shows the picture getting darker or lighter on the screen), but once the picture is shot, it's fixed at an overexposed state.

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over exposed by 1 to 2 stops. If I use the same functions with my Canon 18 -55 kit lens the exposure is correct so I would presume the camera is not causing the problem. The only way I can get a correct exposure with the Sigma lens is to compensate manually for each shot. Please note the exposure p

I have a Canon EOS 50D Digital Camera and use 3 different Canon Lenses. I am getting "Error 30". I have taken the internal battery out and re-installed the firmware.
