Having problems with your Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera ?

Cannon lenses Can I use my old Cannon Lenses (EOS SLR - using film) with a new digital Cannon body?


Answers :

All canon EF lenses (and compatibles e.g. Sigma EX) can be used with both analog and digital  EOS-bodies. Depending on the sensor size (usually smaller than a 35 mm negative) a crop-factor due to the smaller field of view must be considered. \015\012Example: Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens used on a digital EOS (40D, crop factor 1.6) equals a 80mm lens (50mm x 1.6) compared to analog cameras using 35mm film.\015\012\015\012Some digital EOS-models can also use EF-S lens-series.

Can I use my old Nikkor AF Film camera lenses on a nikon digital body?

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 found a Quantaray 55-52 mm step down ring (Manufacture # 241664614) on Wolf Camera's website that I am interested in purchasing, but want to make sure it would work for me. I have some close up lenses (Hoya) for my old Canon SLR film camera (55mm) and was hoping I could use those lenses on my newer Nikon DSLR (52mm) camera. Would the step down ring make it possible to attach and use my old camera's close up lenses on my new DSLR camera? Thanks, Jerry


No. The 55-52mm step-down ring will let you attach a 52mm attachment onto a lens with a 55mm thread. You want a 52-55mm step-up ring. ... Digital Cameras

I have an older (not digital) Canon EOS Rebel 2000 camera. I haven't used it for a couple of years and now when I went to use it I loaded the film. No problem. But after a couple of pictures it rewound all by itself. I did not press the rewind button. I want to use the entire roll of film, not just a couple of exposures. Does anybody know what went wrong? How can I fix this? Thank you. [email protected]

I have an old interchangable lense from a Nikon camera that I used to use with film. My question is does the lense Sigma DL zoom 75-300 mm 1:4-5.6, fit or work on any of the digital camera today?


Yes. It will fit and work on every current Nikon digital camera. It will act longer, like a 125-450mm on the smaller sensor bodies (everything except the D700 and the D3 series). It will act like a 75-300mm on the D700 and the D3. It also won't autof ... Digital Cameras

We have have two Cannon cameras which have had approximately 18 months of use that have presented with the same problem. The lense is completely jammed in the housing.

Is there any advice that you can give to remedy problem as it seems to be a fault with Cannon cameras. Thanking you in anticipation.

All old lenses will work on the D90 the same way they work on the D80. Filters depend on the lens -- they either fit or they don't -- the camera has nothing to do with that. I wouldn't use old flashes on new DSLRs.There really is no diffe ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Nikon D50, digital SLR, I was using my camera at a wedding and the flash just stopped working. The camera thinks the flash is going off - it pops up and takes them quickly but no light goes off.... do these cameras have traditional 'bulbs' could it be as simple as the bulb has blown and it needs a new one? or am i looking at something bigger than that? I am normally an old school film camera person - i dont know much about this at all... thanks kathleen
