Answers :

Be aware that the built in flash does not pop up automatically in all picture modes. Try it when in the different modes (on the mode dial) and see what I mean. Does it popo up when manually opened ?, (small button on front left hand side of the viewing pentaprism/flash housing.)

EOS 400D Good day, I bought a Canon EOS 400D Xmas last year and a Canon colour printer to match. I used my Camera some weeks ago and after removing the card I entered it into my printer must have been able to fit it in wrong way because it damaged the pins in the printer not knowing why it was not reading my I removed the card re entered it into the camera and try to connect via the cable but the card was damaged and now damaged the pins in the camera. So I took my printer to be repaired and wa

I have an EOS Canon 400D digital SLR and my husband has bought me a Sony photo printer DDP-FP75 . I had wanted to be able to insert the memory card but it doesn't seem compatible. Can I print using the Sony printer without going through a PC - if so how? Help!!

Flashless photograghy I bought a this camera about a month ago. I would like to know what settings I need to put it on so I can take good pictures of a stage performence without having to use my flash. These are the accessories that I have: Canon - EOS 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera - Black EOS 40D Canon - 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM Telephoto Zoom Lens 0345B002


Use the highest ISO setting and the largest aperature (low number) possible. A tripod would help as the camera is going to take a slow shot if it has a slow lens (telephoto lens' are slow--high f-stop value) You want to use the kit lens on the camera ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

I have a Canon EOS 40D camera. We are having problems with using an external flash. The pictures always come out extremely dark with the external flash. The flash seems to work fine, it flashes brightly. The pictures look fine using the built in flash. The flash is a Promaster but we tried a Canon flash and it did the same thing. The camera store we bought the camera and the flash from says it looks like a synchronization issue and that it is a hardware problem with the boot. Their sugges


I don't know if this will help and this post is two months old. The \015\012camera store may be right that the synchronization is the issue which \015\012tends me to point a finger at the external flash. There are at least \015\012three different fla ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

I bought a Canon 40D from Amazon--through Ace Digital Photo--in a kit with a 17-85mm lens, presumably new. I replaced it recently with the 50D. Now I learn that the camera, which was never outside my home and has about 100 activations was used--quite a lot of use and significant dust on the sensor. I was cheated, obviously. I can see the dust myself and a camera shop told me the camera was used extensively. Well, I am pretty disappointed. The purchase date was around 08/01/2008 and I still


This is not a Canon web site. But I seriously doubt that Canon would send used cameras to its dealers -- where would they get them? More likely one of Ace's former customers returned the camera and Ace re-sold it as new. Your unfortunate situation is ... Canon Digital Cameras

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?


Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

I bought this canon rebel t2 film camera recently and used film with ASO 400. Portraits look ok. but the landscapes, especially the sky area look dark and grainy. I used ef 28-135mm usm lens. Any solutions to this ?


That's odd that the pictures would be coming out under exposed unless the previous owner has gone into the camera functions and switched the ISO from auto to manual. Another reason is that the exposure compensation has been activated and set for - ex ... Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

Since last week i am encouttering the error 99 < replace the battery and try again>.I did this but the problem persist. I replaced the lense with the default lense that comes with the camera.The problem has been solve. So the conclusion is that the 17-85mm lense was faulty.

Sigma 17-35 mm AF EX f2.8-4.0 bought for EOS 50 4years ago did not work with with new Canon 400D. Sigma claimed needed new chip. Since August is now back for third time. Noisy focussing, hunting when focussing and inaccurate focussing with both camera bodies. Also does not indicate change in maximum aperture from 17mm to 35mm or indicate lens angle in digital data. Since chip change will not now focus correctly with EOS 50 body.

I have a Canon EOS 1000D, and I've had it for almost 4 years. Recently i started having problems with both my lenses. Autofocus works but through the everything appears blurry when "focuses" and thus I can't use manual focus anymore. In conclusion, everything appears blurry through the eyepiece but the lenses obviously work as the pictures come out perfectly clear when using autofocus. What is the problem and how do I fix it?

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

I recently purchased this Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS/1000 from Best Buy and happily used it for about 6 weeks, when suddenly the AF button won't work, and when I try to use manual (since I was very accomplished with 33 mm cameras at one time) I can barely get a decent focus -- it's an almost impossible task. What happened? This camera has not been dropped or misued in any way, and I fear there is no future in taking it back to Best Buy with their rigid return policy of 14 days and no longer. HEL

If you see the spots on the images after transferring them to another device, my first guess would be there is a speck of dust on the CCD. It just works its way in there sometimes. You could do the surgery yourself and blast it lightly with some ca ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W55 Digital Camera

Err99 is a generic Canon error code. It does not pin point the problem it is just telling you there is a problem. Try turning it on without the card. If you still get the error it may be the lens or some other issue with the camera. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera
