    OK - that worked ! Is there a way to set the f stop & aperture seperatly ?

    The F stop and aperture is the same thing. The size of the aperture is determined by the F stop. The larger the F stop number the smaller the aperture hole size.

On right hand top of the camera there is a Mode dial. Move the dial to Av (aperture priority) then rotate the wheel in front of this dial to set the F stop. The shutter speed will automatically adjust by the light meter.

SOURCE: Canon 450D, ERROR 99 only when flash pops up

Err 99 usually means your lens contacts are dirty either on the lens itself or on the camera.

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

SOURCE: Canon Rebel XT I can't change aperture or shutter speed in manual mode

You may try this. Reset all in the menu setup.
What you will be doing to to reset all the settings back to factory settings. Then you will want to go through the settings and reset them the way you prefer.

SOURCE: Rebel xt will focus but wont take pictures

I had this issue just this morning, and came here for a solution.
Problem: Camera functions normally except it will not take a picture, let me autofocus, or bring up the light meter in the viewfinder.
Attempted Solutions: First turned it Off/On. Then Switched lenses, same thing. Removed/replaced battery, changed settings. Removed the lens, and it takes a picture, replaced the lens, and it still will not. Then I came here, and heard that it was most likely an issue with the lens contacts. I've heard of Rebels having error 99's which were contact errors, and canon's official solution was to use a pencil eraser (like the one attached to the back of a No.2) and gently rub the surface of the contacts with it, and it worked in that situation.
Guess what? This solution worked instantly, and my camera is back to normal. I don't know if it will work long term yet because I just tried it like 10 mins ago and only after taking down all of my lighting equipment, but all seems well.

Instead of taking out the battery, just open and close the battery compartment to reset the camera.

SVRGuy02 is right, set the slep time longer to avoid the issue so much and just open and close the battery compartment before beginning each shooting exercise

In the manual mode, you have to set the focus (distance to subject), aperture and shutter speed. Did you set all of them before you shot the picture?

Why does my canon eos rebel t3 not take a picture when the shutter button is depressed but tje red eye reduction button keeps flashing and the video still works?


Usually, it means that the timer function has been turned on, and the camera is going through a countdown to trigger the shutter.

After that, it means that something else is not working correctly. If video works and records, then you know that the sensor and memory are functioning correctly. At that point, check to see whether your camera and lens are set for the form of autofocus or manual focus you want and that the aperture is still functioning correctly.

At some point, switch the camera to an all manual settings mode and try the shutter switch. If it still does not take a picture, the switch may have a problem.

My manual setting is not working. Everytime I try to take a picture using manual mode without flash its dark.


Just to make sure, you are setting the proper exposure? In manual mode you have to set both the aperture and shutter speed yourself. If you don't set them properly then you'll get under- or over-exposed pictures.

I'm having trouble trying to change the aperture on Manual mode


Use the wheel next to the on/off switch. It should be at normal position for your right thumb. Make sure the On switch is all the way up to the line, past the first on-setting. This enables the wheel.

Aperture priority, shutter priority


You might try overriding the white balance by setting it for fluorescent. Those bulbs are the usual cause of the green hue
