Question about Canon EOS-Rebel G QD Film Camera

1 Answer

Camera issues I have the Canon Rebel G EOS film camera. When there is no film in the camera, you can look through and "take pictures" fine. But when you put film IN the camera, all you see is black.The film is loaded right, the camera is clean, the batteries are good. Its like the shutter is stuck. We have used this camera for a little over 5 years now without a problem, no all of a sudden its having this problem..Any ideas???

Check your mirror lock up switch. This function is used for long exposures locking the mirror in the up position to reduce vibration before the shutter is released, but you will not be able to use the view finder.

How do you delete multiple pictures on my camera

I think you've listed this under the wrong category.

You cannot delete multiple pictures on a Canon EOS Rebel XS 35mm SLR unless you do it the same way as on ALL film cameras: remove the film and pull it all out of the film canister. But this destroys all images.

If you're asking how to do it on a digital camera the answer will depend upon the exact make and model and I respectfully suggest that you repost your question under the correct subject heading with the necessary details.

Canon EOS Rebel S taking bad pictures

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.

Dark pictures

Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure.

Canon EOS Rebel G

From the Canon Help Email - this worked for me: If you are using an EF series Canon lens, please remove the lens and clean the lens contacts with a pencil eraser. We also suggest that you remove the film and battery for 15 minutes; ensure that the battery has a full charge and reinstall. If the issue persists, we suggest testing the camera with a different EF series Canon lens. Should this persist with a different lens, then the camera body itself will need to be examined.
