Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera

My Cannon Rebel EOS 35mm film Camera is producing blank Film

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.

HELP!!

    My camera is a Canon EOS Elan 100.I'm getting parrtial pictures in the middle of the roll. These are outdoor pictures and I have the camera on "auto." It used to take beautiful pictures on cloudy days, now it sporadically looks under exposed.....very dark. The camera has never been serviced.

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.

You did not mention which lens. Some Canon digital cameras will only take EFS lens, others take both EF and EFS. Also there are other types of lens mounts made by Canon.

Can i use any film for my Canon EOS Rebel SLR Mark 2 or will anyone work?


You can use any 35mm film in any 35mm camera. You must set the film speed (ASA or DIN number) on the camera to match what it says on the film. This is to get the correct exposure, as different films have different sensitivities.

Is it possible to clean the mirror on an SLR camera, specificlly a Cannon EOS Rebel G. it looks like it has a film or dirt or possibly smoke residue on it.


It can be cleaned but you must be careful and gentle. The surface is silver and is easily damaged.

1. Blow any dust off with canned air for cameras.
2. Wet, do not soak, a foam swab with camera lens cleaner.
3. Gently wipe mirror from side to side.
4. Replace swab when dirty.
5. Repeat as necessary.
6. Gently dry with dry swab.

Your camera has a faulty shutter or shutter timer.

Given that you can buy a perfectly good Rebel S for anywhere between £1 to £25 on Ebay it's not economical to repair it.

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!
