Having problems with your Canon EOS 30D / EF-S 17-85mm IS Digital Camera ?

When set on Manual my aperture is stuck at 5.6

\015 I have a Canon 30D. When I set it to Manual, my aperture gets stuck at 5.6 and won't move. I can adjust my shutter but for some reason my aperture won't budge! I turn my "on" switch all the way up so I can use both wheels. Nothing works! It's so frustrating!\015

I was taking pictures into bright sunlight switching between manual and automatic settings, and manual and automatic focus. First, the picutre would take, but the shutter would not open (viewfinder would remain closed) switching from manual to automatic focus fixed this issue. However now it seems that the aperture is stuck, and not enough light gets through to the viewfinder. How can I fix this?


Thanks for the extra info, it's just a question of whether your problem is with the lens or the body.Do you get the same problem with other lenses? If so the body is faulty and if not it's that one particular lens.Aperture con ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

My Canon 28-135mm IS lens seems to have broken internally. If I try to turn the lens (as in, to manually focus it), it jams before setting to the largest aperture. Moreover, there appears to be a metal object-- a hinge, perhaps?-- stuck inside of it. What do I do?


This lens is a very popular focal length and still a "current" lens it's worth getting an estimate from a repair facility. It sounds as if the aperture blades have come apart, possible just worn out but I find that hard to believe after the more then ... Digital Cameras

My manual program does not work; it's as if the program was stuck on "user". I cannot change the aperture, the speed goes up only to 250 and the exposure bar is not visible. I don't know what happened, since I did not change my settings since last use.I use Pentax K10D.

External Flash I set my Epson 3100z camera to manual mode and set up the camera for external flash. I manually set the shutter speed to 1/60 sec and the aperture to F4. I also set my SunPak flash to F4. My exposures seem pretty good. However when I review the various photo info's, the aperture reading is F5 or F4.8 not the F4 I set. Why is this? Anyone experienced this? The shutter speed are also not always what I set on the camera.

My Vivitar Series 1 24-70 manual focus ais lens won't work on program in my Nikon FA. I bought both new, but have stored them for a long time. It works on aperture priority, shutter priority, and manual, just not in program. All my other lenses do, including other Vivitar lenses, so it must be the lens. Fresh batteries in the camera. I get the FEE message, which means the lens is not set on the smallest aperture, but it IS set on the smallest aperture. I have tried dismounting and remounti

Hi I have recently purchased a fz28 and upgrades from a point and shoot. I am trying to set the camera so I can get pics of the moon but all I get is a white blob (I got a great pic from the point and shoot) I am being told to set the iso and the focus to infinity and the aperture to f16. I have fogotten my manual and I am away on hols so a step by step would be fantastic. also is there a way of keeping the settings stored so I dont have to remember them! Thanks in advance


The problem is that your shutter is staying open longer than necessary because of all the dark sky. Make sure to use a tripod and experiment with shorter shutter exposures. ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ28 Digital Camera

I have copied and pasted someone elses problem, because it is the same one I am having. So if I want to use the aperture for taking Manual photos I cannot do this because when it goes off of F22, it reads FEE, error. "I have nikon d80 with the fEE error code blinking... I know this means that the aperture is not locked at the 22 but it will not allow me to change the aperture settings. Please help us!!!"


Lock the aperture ring at its smallest opening (in this case, F22). Change the aperture setting by turning the subcommand dial (the one in front, unless you changed it in the setup menu).Of course, you can only change the aperture directl ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 28-80mm Lens

Exposure problem Hi,i'm using EOS 1dMK2 for 5 months now & i've noticed the same problem i've had using D60,1D wich is when i set the camera to top ISO speed & high speed continous shooting almost every second shot is underexposed for 1 stop, stangely this only happens indoor under tungsten or flourescent light.I've also tried to:set custom white ballance,shoot raw ,change lenses,set manual exposure & aperture. Has anyone else noticed this ? P.S. Parameters for both pictures are 1/250sec, f4 ,


If you set your meter based on the white (or substantially white) wall, as per the attachment, I would expect the image to be underexposed. ... Canon EOS-1D Mark II Digital Camera

Hi i am using a Nikon N75 to take pictures for my photo class, and the instructor wants us to take low light indoor phtotos at a shutter speed of 1/30 at f2.2. However, when i go to set these settings in manual mode the camera will not let me set my aperture to 2.2 it usually stops at 4 and there is no way i can make it 2.2. i didn't know if there is a limitation on the camera but it seems like i should be able to select what i want.


It's probably a limitation of your lens. You didn't say what lens you're using, but one of the common kit lenses sold with the N75 only goes to f/3.3 at best. If you had a lens that opens up more, the camera will let you use it.The differ ... Nikon Digital Cameras

On the Canon G3 I have issues with the main dial on the handgrip (used for aperture shutter speed and manual focus) while in Manual mode. it will change settings only some of the time! is this usually due to dust in the area and can it be cleaned or otherwise made operational?

My Sony Alpha 200 digital camera takes lovely pictures, but as I am a beginner and don't really know much about apertures and shutter speeds and how complex they are, I'm having great difficulty in getting it to focus properly in the manual setting. All other settings are fine, but the image in my viewfinder is very blurry when I look through before taking the shot. I have altered the diopter for my eyes as I wear glasses, so that isn't the problem. Is there something I'm either doing wrong, or

My flash seems to be stuck in the "suppressed" mode. Also the Manual on page 64 refers to a "turn" of the "command dial" to the "flash mode setting". Since that item is not described anywhere else and the only turnable dial is the "mode" dial, I assume that it means to press the flash mode arrow. When I do that nothing happens. The flash modes do not display as described in the manual. I can't figure out how to get the flash to function properly again. I have made all my attempts with fre

I have a nikon d200. The last time I used it (only a few days ago) it was fine, everything normal. Then yesterday I pull out out of the case and everything seems to be going wrong. It is metering INSANELY low, like a shutter speed of 100 in full daylight produces a REALLY dark image. It won't auto focus at all, and i am unable to change the fstop in manual or aperture priority modes. I tried to restore it to factory settings and the lcd screen flashed to indicate it had been restored but no luck
