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???

Re: camera issues

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.

Canon EOS Rebel T2 - film loaded, but then wouldn't take a picture, the frame count was flashing on screen. What is the problem?

Hi. Open the camera back and pull the film further over towards the pick up spool, close the back and try again to take a photo, i had the same problem with an eos 650 and it always worked.Good luck.

Very dark pictures

hi melissa,
your problem is the focusing areas, im sorry that I do not know how to turn it off, the rectangle you see is the area is focusing on, and the darkness is what the camera doesnt focus on, try reading the manual, or turning it off yourself.

Is there a way to retrieve photos taken on a canon eos rebel t3 when no memory card was inserted?

I'm afraid not. The camera does not have any memory to store photos. You can take one photo and look at it on the screen to see how the camera works, but this is primarily for demonstration purposes. Shooting without a memory card is like shooting an old film camera without any film loaded. You can go through the motions of taking a picture, but nothing is stored permanently.

Canon EOS 300d will not close aperture on sigma lens

It is well known that some lenses made by Canon for the EOS film camera range do not work well with digital SLRs. Canon lenses work fine but it may be worth checking if the Sigma has a known problem with EOS digtal bodies.

Black line across top of all my developed pictures

You have light leak somewhere to the film.
Usually from the bad film door seal.

New computer. No Canon sofware. Canon Rebel EOS purchased second hand. Where can I get the software to download the pictures?

Hopefully you have the EOS Digital Rebel. (The EOS Rebel was a film camera.) Without the software that came with the camera (ZoomBrowser EX for Windows or ImageBrowser for Mac), you can only download JPG images using the PTP communication mode. The communication mode is set up in the Menu system on the camera, and is either "Normal" or "PTP". If you want to download RAW files, you will need to use a software application that has a converter for Canon RAW files (Photoshop, etc.). If you didn't get a User's Manual, you can get one here.

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.
