Question about Canon EOS Rebel Ti / 300V 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Black Image I recently cleaned my Canon EOS Rebel and not long afterwards, I started having problems with proper exposure. When I try to take a photograph, only 1/3 of the frame actually shows the image. The rest of the picture is black. The image only shows at the top of the frame. I'm concerned that possibly the mirror is now out of sinc with the lens? However, upon closer inspection with the lens off, the mirror flips out of the way as it is designed to do. What could be causing my images to only record the top 1/3 of the frame? Thanks so much! Michelle

Re: Black Image

Are you taking these images with a flash? If so it is possible that you are shooting with a shutter speed which is too fast for flash photography. Anything faster then 1/125th (i think) on that camera with flash will produce the result you are describing. If this is without flash then the problem lies elsewhere. New flashes from canon have the capability to work with any shutter speed, but classic flashes only work properly at lower speeds. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

If you pull the card and look at the pictures on a computer and they are still black, then it sounds like you could have a problem with the shutter or the mirror....

Best of luck!

I'm using a Canon EOS Rebel X S 35mm SLR What setting should i set my camera for a manual shutter speed?

If your camera is a Rebel XS you should have a dial on the top right with a series of letters and icons. To set your camera so you manually control the shutter speed turn this dial too "TV" (Time Value). This setting will allow you to select the shutter speed and the aperture will open or close to achieve the correct exposure. The "M" is (Manual) where you would select both the shutter speed and aperture "AV" is (Aperture Value) where the user selects the aperture they want and the shutter speed increases or decreases to obtain a proper exposure. The "P" (Program) mode allows the camera to automatically select the shutter speed and aperture

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.

Why do my pictures come out black when they are developed

If we assume that the lens cap has been removed for the pictures, then you have other issues. The shutter is not opening. Why?
1. mechanical issue like something broken, bent, jumped out of the track.
solution: repair shop

2. electronic issue like exposure module died, misreading exposure sensor, flash not raising and firing, etc.
solution: repair shop.

Repair shop will also Clean, Lube and Adjust.

Pictures too dark

Check your exposure compensation. It really sounds like someone set the camera to underexpose. This may be solved by removing the batteries for a few minutes. Other solutions are hitting the reset which will cancel all and return it to factory settings OR navigate to the exposure compensation settings and reset it there. If none of these solutions work, then the camera's internal program is messed up and its internal computer needs replaced.
