Question about Canon T90 35mm SLR Camera

Canon T90 My Canon T90 seems to have a problem with the shutter on exposures slower than around 1/30sec? Do you think this problem could be fixed? I understand that parts are unavailable for the Canon T90.

It kind of depends on what exactly the problem is. If the problem is that the speeds are off, then that can likely be remedied without any new parts. It needs a clean, lube and adjust. If its due to the shutter curtains being worn and they need replacing, then there is a possibility that it uses the same curtain as another Canon model and parts can be had new for that model. Worse comes to worse, a parts body can be used for the repair.

Watch the cost of this stuff though. T90s on the used market are selling pretty cheap, so it might make more sense to buy another used and keep yours for parts.

I'm having problems with the settings on my Canon EOS 400D. When I take pictures in AV mode I can get quality pictures but in TV or M modes the pictures always come out so dark even when taking them...


You need to understand the relationship and teractivity of aperture, shutter speed and iso. In Av mod, you choose the aperture and the camera makes thw shutter speed agjustment, In Tv mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera makes the aperture adjustment, In manual, you have to set both shutter speed and aperture manually. If the ISO mode is set to AUTO, the camera chooses the sensors sensitivity to light automatically. Change to specific ISO
(200-400 for daylight and 799-1600 for night). Take a picture in AV mode and note what shutter speed the camera chose. Then switch to TC mode choose the same shutter speed and see if camera chose the same aperture(f-stop) you chose in first shot. Change to Manual and choose same f-stop and shutter speed the camera chose for you in the other modes. Compare all three photos. They should be almost if not exactly the same exposure wise.
In Tv mode choose a dlowers shutter speed, In Manual choose a combo of slower shuuter and wider f-stop(smaller number). Read your manual.

I first experienced a problem with my Canon S2Is camera when it was only taking pictures of blank images. I found a "fix" recommendation which seems to have gotten rid of the black image problem. However,...


Think you need to do the fix more. Believe your shutter was previously stuck in the closed position. Now it sounds like it is stuck in the open position. Again keep trying the fix to loosen it up. Just to confirm, the "fix" you're talking about is taking repeated photos in shutter priority mode with 15 second exposures, and opening and closing the battery door while the shutter is opening, right? You may want to add some tapping of the camera against its padded usb cover in an attempt to get the shutter to jar closed.

T90 shutter


Hi Tim, I had the same problem , I took it to get it repaired & was told that it needed a new shutter solinoid , the repair cost £90 5years ago, you are probably looking at around £140+ today. mine has gone again & I am reluctant to spend that sort of money on it again. If you manage to get it repaired & there are periods of time when you wont be useing it take it out periodicly & just run the shutter a few times, it helps to stop it sticking. Good luck with whatever you decide to do . regards dave.preece@ukonline.co.uk

Shutter priority mode?


s I understand it from what I have seen on the Web, the 3000Z can operate in several modes: 1. Fully automatic (camera select both 2. Manual (user sets both aperture and shutter speed). 3. Aperture Priority mode - user sets aperture and camera chooses correct shutter speed to get a good exposure Apparently there is no Shutter Priority mode (user cannot set only the shutter er speed and allow the camera to set the aperature to get a good exposure). This option is available on the Epson 850Z camera and this seems like a silly ommision to make on a "high-end" camera like the 3000Z.

I've tried some night shots, and I would either adj the exposer compensation level, or you can lower the ap value witch would increase the diaphragm opening. try this out and tell what you get. I believe you can adjust your iso settings, too much you might get some digital noise.
