Question about Canon EOS IX Lite 35mm SLR Camera

Canon EOS IX Lite (APS) aperture issue

I have a Canon EOS IX Lite, which uses APS film. While shooting outside on a somewhat chilly day, the aperture reading became "00" and I could not shoot on aperture priority. I had no other problems.

My camera has now warmed up but still has the same issue. I am not sure if the aperture is functioning. I've had a look at the shots from that outside shoot but the aperture settings aren't recorded, and as it was cold, I didn't record them myself with each shot. The shots aren't great but don't seem either wildly over or underexposed which I would think could indicate that the aperture is stuck.

So I'm not sure what the problem is. Any thoughts?

I am so close to throwing this camera in the lake.

    Okay, this problem seems to have resolved. I detached and then re-attached the lens and it's all fixed, so I'm guessing there was some problem with the connection.

SOURCE: Aperture priority not working...HELP!!

Hey Mike, This is an easy one. With the battery grip attached, you can only have either Shutter Priority or Aperture Priority work properly. You can change it with the custom function settings of the camera. So you can change it to work with Aperture Priority if you use that more so then shutter priority won't work. Brandon

Do I need to buy film to use this kind of camera?


Vivitar makes many cameras. Some use 35 mm film and some are electronic. I believe yours is an XM 1K type:
Product description Product Information The Vivitar XM1K is an APS point and shoot film camera, designed to capture photographs with dazzling colors and record the memorable moments of your life. You can click brilliant outdoor photos even in low-light condition aided by the f/4.5 aperture of this Vivitar film camera.

My canon elph is getting a magenta line on the right side of all the pictures. what can it be?


The film is being fogged by light leaking into the camera through a bad light seal. Due to the design of APS models the seals cannot be replaced. Either put opaque aluminium tape over the outside part which is leaking or retire the camera and replace it.

I have an old Nikon Lite Touch Zoom 100 AF camera and I am having trouble loading the film. Can you use Kodak Advantix APS film in this camera or should I be using manual loading film instead?


This camera uses 35mm film, not APS film. 35mm is a larger format, giving MUCH better results, at the expense of having to manually pull the leader across to the take-up spool each time you load a roll.

Will the lenses for a film camera (Canon EOS Rebel) fit a new digital body? Thanks.


Yes the Canon EOS lenses from film bodies will fit and work well on Canon digital bodies.
Depending on the Canon digital body you select the lens may have a 1.6 x factor. Meaning the focal length of the film lens will become a longer focal length. For an example Canon's 50mm f1.8 lens on the APS size digital sensor will translate to an 80mm equivalent. This is great for most people but, getting a good wide angle lens is a bit of a challenge, there has to be a tread off somewhere. There are Canon full frame cameras that this factor doesn't apply, for example a Canon 5D.

I cannot find where the memory card or film goes in this camera.


Your camera takes APS film. It's an obsolete system these days but the film and processing are still fairly easy to get.

The film loads into a compartment on the bottom of the camera; you open the compartment by turning the latch on the right hand end of the camera (as viewed from behind). The battery fits into a small compartment on the lower left back of the camera.

If it's an older lens, for EOS film cameras, Quantaray might upgrade it free - contact your local Ritz Camera store ( it's imported by Ritz ) or find a repair center for Quantaray online.
