Re: My camera

This happens on the Canon DSLR s - the submirror has a pivot pin made of plastic that breaks off. The mirror box will have to be removed to replace the pin - about a $150 repair.

Canon slr will not take a picture. States the word busy. I tried a new memory card ..same result no change. It is a rebel.

You are not mentioning what Canon model, so we would be at a loss to assist you. There may be a way to do a factory reset on your camera, check the manual. In your question you state "...slr...", that indicates a film camera. Also, you say you added a memory card, that indicates a DSLR. If a factory reset that does not work call Canon:

How to turn off shutter sound

You can't. The sound is caused by a lot of moving parts within the T5i. The mirror reflex flips up, the leading edge of the shutter curtain moves across the frame, the trailing edge moves across the frame, then the mirror flips down. All this happens very quickly, and the sound can be dampened only so much.

Should the LCD screen show what I am taking a picture of? I can review it afterwards.

Your camera is a DSLR with a mirror prism, so when you look through the viewfinder you are seeing the scene as what it is much like looking through a pair of glasses. To have "Live View" what you would be looking at is a digital image of what the camera is pointed at. That's a pretty simple explanation but one the DSLR is optical where as the Live View is a digital image. What you have is an entry level DSLR camera much the same as professional photographers use. I use both types and they both have their place but when I'm shooting for the ultimate image for print I'm looking through the viewfinder not a live view.

I have a Canon AE-1 SLR camera for my high school photo class and it was working fine but all of a sudden my film advance lever locked and now it wont take any pictures, does anyone know how to fix this?

This may not be the problem, but could it be that you've run out of film. The end of the film is attached to the 35mm film canister. When you run out of film it will prevent the advance level from moving.

HELP APERTURE PROBLEM! When I attach any lens to the Nikon FM10

This is normal. the lens stay at the largest opening so you can see to focus, then the mechanics will close to the setting when the exposure is made. This is part of the reflex in single lens reflex (SLR). This part staying open when you focus keeps lyou from having to open the aperture to focus and then close it to the correct setting to shoot the picture.

I love my Minolta camera. I want to get a digital. I would like the same kind of camera. Can I get one and use my zoom lens that I already have. I need a camera that is update to use a USB cord to...

if you want to use your current lens, then your only new choice is any of the Sony Alpha dSLR's as they use the Minolta AF mount.

However... your lens will not operate correctly. You may have to manually focus and the auto iris stop down might not work. The only way to find out in advance to to take your lens along to a Sony stockist to try it out, but phone them in advance to ensure that they have a display model with a freshly charged battery.

You will definitely find that your 35mm film lens will have a different angle of view; the smaller sensor on the dSLR means that your lens will appear to have a 1.5x teleconverter fitted. You'll also likely find that your lens will be optically inferior to the modern offerings simply due to greater advances in computer aided design and materials technology, although the actual build quality of your lens may well be better.

On balance, I'd suggest that you continue to use your Minolta 35mm camera and if you buy a digital SLR system just make a clean break and pick whichever system suits your needs best. Unless you already own late model 35mm AF Nikon or Canon gear there's really very little to be gained by trying to use your old equipment on the new dSLR body and potentially a lot of handling issues to interfere with taking photos.

I have got an EOS Elan II E Film Camera (Cannon). I want to know Cannon has camera with a digital body which suits the lens attachment of EOS Elan II E.

Hi, all canon EOS digital cameras can take all EF lenses. An EF lens from 1989 will fit a Digital body from 2009.
The newer EF-S lenses will only work with the smaller APS-C size sensors on the cheaper consumer bodies.
Hope this answers your query, please take the time to rate!

New response to night shots

Hey matty reps,
The numbers you are seeing represent the size of the aperture. The smaller the number you set the camera to the larger the opening in the lens that lets light thru, and the larger the number is the smaller the opening is. The closer you are to your subject the smaller aperture you can use (larger#'s) because you will need less light from the flash to reach the sensor, and the farther away you are from your subject the larger the aperture (smaller#'s) you will need to use. I hope this helps!

Go Ahead. Use Us.
