Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

Part of the shutter doesn't close

\015 Its not a similar problem to anyone elses. I was cleaning the sensor with a little blower (those turkey type things), and had turned off the camera after finishing. I then procedded to put the lens back on (after I turned it off) to take a test picture to assess if I had gotten it clean or not. But it seems that I can take photos, but part of the internal shutter is having a problem and not moving out of the way before the picture is taken. I'm an amatuer photographer, so I may be describing it incorrectly, here's an image I just took.http://img204.imageshack.us/img204/9907/img2677qq0.jpgAre there any quick fixes?Thanks for looking.\015

Answers :

Your probably need a new shutter, or at least need to dissasemble the camera and repair the exisiting shutter. A good tech can probably do it for around $150

Now, I took it into a repair shop, and they said they see this happen a lot with digital cameras, and the more pictures you take the quicker the part will wear out. They're going to give
