I have a Canon EOS, 1000D which I purchased in Feb 09. I have an error message coming up on the screen everytime I take a shot (which doesn't record). The error is a Err 99, "Shooting is not possible. Turn the power swith to OFF and ON again or reinstall the battery." Which I have done and the problem seems (at this stage) to be fixed. Is it just a battery problem or is there someother problem with the camera it's self. SJ

Just purchased a canon A590. on page 84 of user guide, continuous shooting is described. I'm somewhat familiar with SD cards, but Canon implies that I have to use their MSH type SD card to use the continuous shooting feature. When I look at the drive modes in my camera, I only see 4 possible modes....single pic, 10 sec delay, 2 second delay, and delay continuous. There is an icon for continuous shooting in the book, but it does not appear on my camera. Why?


I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames p ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have a new Rebel xs kit, and after 20 shots, I got the err 99. I did all the above, that is from cleaning contacts to everything possible procedure mentioned in this forum. There are few things that I noticed. My err 99 is displayed with or without any lens attached, I did this to fault isolate the problem and it is on the camera body. It only happens when the camera is off, then on, and the first shot triggers error 99. With the camera on, I opened the battery cover and closed it. and surpris

My d90 flashes an err sign somtimes when i shoot at manual mode.. but when i change my apperture and shutter speed setting, it will not appear anymore. Even at auto mode sometimes it flashes an err. Does the d90 flashes an error when you made wrong setting in your apperture and shutter speed?

I occasionally get an err 99 when shooting a sequence. It's as though the images can't be written to the card fast enough and it jams. The only way to reset the camera is to turn it off, remove and replace the battery and turn it back on. This is a major inconvenience as it tends to happen more often when I shoot water and the camera is secured in my housing. Please help me!
