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

Lense on Cannon sureshot

\015 My friend accidentally dropped my camera and it fell on the lense. It still takes good pictures but I cannot use the zoom. It is slightly bent. Is there an easy way to remove this and replace it.\015

Answers :

Not really, zoom lenses are pretty fragile and will permanently be damaged when they get a shock. Most probably the guide rails/pins are damaged inside, and it will need luck and patience to glue them in place (and most of the times glue isn't strong enough to keep them together).

Better sell it for parts on ebay and get yourself a new one (most of the times broken fetch half price of used ones). People need different parts (i.e., the mount, motors, aperture assembly), and it is environmentally great to recycle goods for reuse by other repairers...

I have a Cannon Powershot SD780 IS. One day when the lense retracted the lense barrier or cap shutter assembly popped off. I was able to snap it back on but just the other day it popped off again and was unable to put back on because the tiny pins on the cap broke off. Is there any place I can purchase a replacement cap assembly. Thanks

I have a Canon 20D camera that I use with two lenses. The lens that I have most of my problems with is the 28-70 f2.8 red ring lens. When focusing It always seems to focus on what is behind the subject. No matter how much I concentrate on the focusing sensor to focus on the subject -AND it looks like it focuses on the subject-UNITL I load my photos and look at them in disgust that it focused behind it!! What is going on?? I use the same lens on my friend's cannon 5D and NEVER have this problem.


This is quite a well known problem called 'back focusing' there is little that can really be done about it, except if the camera is under warrnty you can send it in and they will do some laser alignment that fixes the problem, it would be worth a cal ... Canon Digital Cameras
