    Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button.

I'd take it to a reputable camera repair shop. Mine did the same thing years ago and they fixed it right up. A repair shop may be found at this site on the right of the page or in your phone book.

Try tapping gentley the beck of the camera or helping the lens to extend by pulling them with your finger nail, see if this can unlock the lens gears.

If you camn get the lens to extend, the problem is solved

A clip came off my Cannon sure shot 150u on the left side and it wont wind the film, how do i fix?


hi, this is film camera uses 35mm film , the clip is used to keep the film wound tightly on the take spool, no problem , use ultra thin cello tape on the tip of the film and attach it to the take up spool , ensure that the rewinding stops as soon as the counter reaches 0 or 1 , in case the camera does not have switch, remove the battery on time hope this works

Canon EOS Rebel T2 - film loaded, but then wouldn't take a picture, the frame count was flashing on screen. What is the problem?


Hi. Open the camera back and pull the film further over towards the pick up spool, close the back and try again to take a photo, i had the same problem with an eos 650 and it always worked.Good luck.

I have a vivitar 62mm camera lens, is there any value to this lens? It was used on a Cannon AE-1 35mm camera.


That is one peculiar focal length- in fact, I think you have given us the filter thread size (62mm diameter fitting filter). So I can't comment on the lens as I am not sure what it is.

There are some Canon digital cameras that can take the lenses from the old SLR film camera range, so if this is an interesting lens, like a zoom or telephoto, it might be worth something. Most film camera stuff now is unwanted, unless it is collectable. A Vivitar lens with a Canon mount is not collectable. These were less expensive third party lenses, not the top whack Canon made ones.

Canon EOS 500n 35mm Film Camera, best cheap lens


In short, you won't. All Canon Digital SLR's use the same lens mounting system as your EOS 500n and new lenses are very expensive especially for those who have purchased full-frame models.

As a result, demand for the lenses which fit your camera is very high and so prices are high as well: it's just basic supply and demand economics. There were cheaply made kit lenses available with your camera when it was new, but like most kit lenses they weren't built to last, so most of the older ones are either non-functional or have been scrapped after owners upgraded. All that leaves are the higher quality, well built, lenses from the time your camera was made which are far cheaper than new lenses but still comparatively expensive.

If you want cheap lenses then you've picked the wrong system. Buy an older FD mount Canon SLR if you want to stay with Canon; you'll then find that lenses are so cheap that they're often offered for free on your local FreeCycle group. The same source is where I've got all of my manual focus (and some AF) SLR equipment over the last few years.

How do I connect an older film lense to a Canon Rebel XS Digital body?


Check the mountin type of the old lens, I use nikon myself and can use my old 50mm lens from a FG on my D70- as they have the same bayonet mounting. Though doing this the camera will only take a shot when it is set to manual- and I'm unable to use the D70's light meter.
If your looking to fix a really old screw in lens to your rebel- i imagine you will have hunt around for an adaptor of some sort.
Seein as thats something I have never done had a root around some resources i use- maybe this will help you a bit more, be warned its fairly dense reading material.

http://www.bobatkins.com/photography/eosfaq/manual_focus_EOS.html

Another thing using a non-digital lens on a digital body can cause problems- something to do with the lens being designed to put a image onto a 35mm shot of film and not a little digital sensor- You'll probably find that what you see in the viewfinder does not appear in the final image. Fairly sure there are conversion tables for the size of lens and what it shoots when used on a digi- body. For example a 50mm lens will be giving a image area equivelant to using a 85mm lens (thats off the top o my head), I'm fairly sure this varies from camera but that info is fairly easy to find.

Canon EOS Rebel K2 constant low battery indicator light


Canon also uses the low battery Icon as a generic error code. Try taking the lens off the camera. If this fixes the problem the lens needs a repair (most likely the aperture unit). If not then the camera needs the repair (either the shutter or dc-dc converter circuit).
