Question about Canon EOS 20Da Digital Camera

2 Answers

Canon EOS 20D Digital zoom failed

I just bought a Canon eos 20d
.
Im trying to zoom in or out when I like to take a picture and it won't do it.
I can only doit manually. The auto foces works though.

Im wondering if the zoom locked? and how to fix it? The camera was working just fine before.
Do I have to download the software before using the camera?
If you zoom in/out manually while the camera is on AF mode would this affect the zoom option?
Thanks.

Hi there,
The autofocus mechanism on some lenses can be damaged if you manually focus while the camera is attempting to autofocus. Basically, you would be working against the motor and gears. 
There is no need to download software before using the camera, however, I would suggest going to Canon's website and downloading the firmware upgrades for it. Here's the link:

Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Canon EOS 20D shutter error

Hello - I figured it out. I had the exact same problem. The shutter failed and it had to be fixed by Canon. Apparently that happens after the shutter fires so many times (like a click-count on a printer). I just got my camera back and it's doing awesome now.

EOs 20D digital camera


Prior to models made in 2007 or later, no SLR camera (film or digital) was able to let you compose the picture before shooting it other than through the optical viewfinder. SLRs are different in this respect from compact digital cameras. You will only be able to review your pictures on the LCD after they are taken.

Connection Problem


I too have a Canon 20D and receive the same message. Zoombrowser works fine with my Canon G3, so the way I get around this problem is by using the other software that came with the 20D called EOS Viewer. This software will download your images every time. You might try sending a note to Canon's support team on the Canon website. They are very quick to respond to all questions and they can probably respond to this question too. Good luck!
