Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera
My cannon 35mm EOS Rebel Film Camera is producing blank film. I have an EF 70-210mm lens on the camera, I'm using Kodak 200 speed film. When I take a picture I hear the shutter make it normal sound and the view finder is momentarily blacking out like it has always done. It's showing that it's takiing the pictures at a 4.5 f and between 350/sec to 1000/sec depending on the brightness. I have taken them in both manual focus and auto focus with the same results.
I have removed the lens from the camera and verified the shutter is opening when the shutter button is depressed. I have done it also with a manual 1 sec shutter speed to verify it works.
The partial photo was a sliver of the subject at the bottom of the film in the middle of the roll.
My digital camera stopped functioning this week also, so i totally with out a camera.
If you are getting some photos where only part of the image is visible, then I suspect that they were photos where you used a flash.
Cameras have a specified maximum shutter speed for use with a flash, this is called its 'sync speed'. This is the fastest speed that the camera will need to open the lead shutter and close the trailing shutter in order to expose the entire surface area of the image and have it evenly lit by the flash unit. If you shoot too fast of a speed, then the shutter will only be partly completed its exposure and you'll get a photo with only part of the image showing. The faster the speed past the sync speed, the less the resulting area of the image. Most cameras will have a sync speed of 1/250 or less. I think a lot of the Rebel models are 1/90 - consult your manual.
