Having problems with your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera ?

I've had my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS/1000D camera for two years and It hasn't given me a problem until about 3 months ago it started to take a longer time to take any photos in all the setti

\015 This problem randomly occurred when I used my camera after it not being used for three months. I can have an object in focus and the first picture can be taken perfectly fine but when it comes to the second or third photo I'm holding the shutter button down for 10 to 15 seconds and when it doesn't do anything I reset and try again. The green button isn't lit and the aperture and shutter speed doesn't change, while other times it will be bouncing between two sets. The camera doesn't say busy as well. I find it strange that it never used to do that up until this point. I could really use some help!\015

Lens Error I purchased a Nikon P90 a month ago; and it was working just fine. A couple of days ago during a photo shoot (after taking 190+ photos without any trouble), the camera went crazy.. It shows a lens error when turned on; asks to 'remove the lens cap' even if it is already removed. The lens starts to zoom out & in for a couple of times; then this error message comes up and just hangs. Tried removing the card, battery and even tried re-charging the cell.

Right now it is working but I'm worried the same thing will happen in the future. Don't know if it is something I need to get fixed or if it is more worthwh
