F7.3 maybe out of range for automatic function on camera lighting conditions.

    Lenses are made differently. Reverse tele and normal or tele zoom lens.

    Either live with it or try to get it fixed, but clean the electrical contact first. then check the lens to see if the resistance slider is working smoothly and the contact does not have resistance too. Working it may get better contact and fix the problem.

    Dust spoils resolution and contrast. Lenses should be stored in boxes or ziplock bags when not used, never on camera. Fixing lenses should be left to a trained professional. You also need dust free benches to do the work, not losing any small parts.

What camera is this?

If DSLR, that out the lens from body. Look into the lens, is aperture is closed or opened? It should be open on Canon and open or closes on Nikon(make sure you can turn the Aperture ring).

Unfortunately, there are electrical differences between early and later Sigma lenses. Although the bayonet connection is the same, and the lens can fit, it will not necessarily connect electrically with the connections on the camera. Sigma can modify the lens for you, but this can be quite costly, and you may be cheaper to look for an alternative lens.

SOURCE: lense error

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

DS 126151 error


What kind of error? Err 99?
You mention DS 126151, that's the model number. This camera is mostly know as Canon EOS Rebel XTi? Also known as the EOS 400D or EOS Kiss Digital X.
If you are getting a Err 99 while shooting, try any other lens that will fit on your Canon. In most cases the aperture will become defect in these lenses. Not worth repairing if you ask me. One thing you could do, is shoot only at its maximum aperture. So that'll be F4.0 at 70mm and F5.6 at 300mm. That might work, but that might not be suitable in every situation.

My canon ds6041 displays err 99 when i try to capture light aur object in sun light.What should i do i'm using 70-21-mm lense


Usually this is cased by shutter failure or failure of the aperture unit in the lens. Try another lens and see if you get the same error message - that will tell you if the problem is in the camera body or lens

I have a canon 10D that is getting an "error 99".


You could've used a non-compatible lens or the contacts are dirty. Turn the camera off then use a clean micro fiber cloth or pencil eraser to clean the contacts.

I am using a canon 350d camera. when I use my efs 18-55mm lense there is an Error 99. Is there a problem with my camera or lense and how can I correct it myself or i need to get professional help. Thank...


'Error 99' indicates some problem with the AF contacts. This is a common error in Canon lenses. It could indicate a very simple problem like dirty contacts or a much serious one like the breakage of USM cable.
As a first step, you can try cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal contacts between the lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to hold the body facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning both the lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try shooting. If the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an authorized service center.

Canon error code 99


Your camera performs a quick 'integrity' check before each shot and goes into error 99 mode if the lens in incompatible or has a diaphragm problem. ( it will also display e99 if the shutter or flash unit is not ok but this does not apply here ). This is how you can check whether the diaphragm mechanism is ok : attach lens to your old camera and set camera to AV and set F stop to 16 . open back and release shutter and look through the back to see if your lens is closing to F 16. If it is closing fine then the lens is ok but is not compatible with your D400.

I have error 99 in my camera canon 400d


1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.
