Question about Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Firing "lag time" response

I have used my 40D for a year... Yesterday when I tried to take a photo, it took about half a second to fire, I have already formatted the memory card, I have cleared all Camera Setting..., I have tried in different autofocus modes, inclusive in manual, and still is "taking time" to fire.

Thanks a lot

    Thanks very much for your advice, I did it excatly as you mentioned it, I tested for about 60 shots, and it appeared working good, I will try on the field and I hope it is fixed.

    I did it, circling to the right and to the left, any particular indication?.

    This is weird...I purchased my 40D in September of 2007. Just today, I started getting the same lag as was described in this post. The focus acted normal, and responsive, but the shutter would take two or three seconds to take. I did the massage thing, and so far seems to have been the ticket. I appreciate the post and thanks for the tip!

    Same things. After 2.5 years the shutter release sometime won't respond.
    I have noticed that when I push it harder then it will fire.
    The massage thing didn't help.

Hi poseguerai, 
Try this:
I had the same issue and even if it sounds crazy giving a massage to the shutter button all around in circles helped and when you switch on the camera has no shutter lag again.
I hope it works as it did for me.

When I go to download the photos to the computer it says the card need to be formatted but it was before i took pictures. How do I get the pictures from the card to the computer


Welcome to FixYa.

First, I suggest that you have to clean you memory card using soft and dry cloth after that try to format it again and save it.

After you formatted your memory card, now try to upload it to your computer. Sometimes memory card wont work because is not formatted for the camera used you said that you already formatted it before, possible that you forgot to save all the settings and formatting that you've done before.

I hope this information can help you to resolve your issues.

Thank you for using Fixya.

I bought a new memory stick for my canon eos 40d and took it out to download pictures and now the camera won't work, it says format card to camera


You need to format the card in-camera. This is done via the camera menu. The camera needs to format it to it's own file system, you shouldn't format the card in a computer.

Are you formatting the card in the camera as you're supposed to? Have you tried going into the menu and finding "reset" and followed the on-screen instructions? Do you have photos on the internal memory? If so, remove your card and format the camera to erase the memory.

Sounds like you're switching the same card between cameras. Rule #1...one card per camera. Format the card in the camera it is to be used in. There is no Rule #2.

Disk not formatted!


hi!,

the file system on the card is corrupt.
it means that it has not been formatted properly or has reached the end of its life. don't worry. if u have a data cable of ur camera then connect it to pc using the cable and then try to copy the photos.
it should work. secondly if that dosn't work then reply me. ill tell u another way. just don't try to click more pictures on the same card.
