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

Error 99 in my Canon 300D


\015 I have had my camera for almost two years now. I have also used a Tamron 70-300 AF Tele-macro lense for about a year. A few days ago I started getting error 99 when using this lens. I believe the problem is the lens but I am not sure. If the lens is used at tis maximum apperture the problem does not occur. I have read about solutions such as cleaning the electrical contacts, taking the camera battery off, taking pictures without a lense on but the problem still pops-up. Anyone with experience with this issue?\015

Answers :

Tamron repaired the lens under warranty terms. It worked fine after the repair.
I had the same problem with an older non-canon (I think it was a Tamron as well) tele-photo lens. IT would take some photos, but some would cause an error on the camera. The problem is with the lens and the reason might be it is an older lens and is not 100% compatible for the 300D camera. If it is an older lens, you can try calling Tamron and see if they can rechip it which should make it compatible with the camera. \015\012\015\012Here is a forum post with someone with the same problem. They had the problem when shooting the sky in broad daylight...the reason they had the problem when doing that might have been because it closed the aperture down small and that is what caused it.

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. At times I can shoot quite a number of shots before getting the error. But, once I start getting the error, it comes about every 4 or 5 shots. I believe this is very similar to the "Error 99" in the Canon 30D, which I also have. The 30D has been sent to Canon for repair and worked for a while and now it gets the Error 99 every coupl
