I've taken many photos so far with my Canon T70 but have no idea how many and when to stop.. i'm not counting the number of photos i've taken, haven't heard any beeping and don't know...

The maximum number of shots possible is 24 or 36 depending on the film length, although sometimes you can squeeze an extra one out of a film. If the film loaded correctly you will get a frame counter in the LCD. If the film did not load correctly, then you have not taken any photos as the film is still in the canister and unexposed.

Take the camera to a totally dark room (and I do mean absolutely pitch black) and open the camera. if you can feel the film canister and just the short leader then it didn't load and you can turn on the lights and try loading again. if there is just the canister and no film sticking out, then the film has rewound and you can turn the lights on and send the film for developing to see if the camera worked. If you feel film going from the canister right across to the take-up spool, then your film is still being used and you should close the back of the camera before turning on the lights again. The latter does not necessarily mean that your camera is OK though as it should be showing frame numbers, but it may be usable still. If after a few more shots the camera is still behaving just the same then it's got a fault.

A faulty t70 is really not worth repairing. It's complex, spares are mostly unavailable, and they are almost worthless even in perfect condition. Any of the earlier non-t-series Canon FD-mount bodies are far better and a lot more fixable. They are also usually near worthless and can be picked up free or very cheaply, but as they have less to go wrong and were designed with repairs in mind then many common faults can be fixed.

Our Canon XL2 has problem with Terminal DV and Terminal. The screw is loose inside. It's totally not work. CAn you fix it? We are in San Jose area, Can we have your phone number?

It's fairly easy to do there's a video on Vimeo on how to do it. I personally suggest you get a ground strap from fry's before attempting this fix. only 5 screws or so to disassemble the unit and I'd suggest you don't disconnect the 2 flex cables between both halves because they're a pain to align just right and you'll definitely pop a main fuse if not seated properly. The main fuse is about the size of a grain of sand and a pain to install.

How do i remove grain from my photo using Digital photo professional S/W that comes with canon camera, its in RAW format.

Grain is usually caused by too slow film speed or too large magnification . Try making the pucture smaller on the computer or using a faster film speed when taking photographs. You may be able to reduce it using bightness and contrst adjustment. play with the settings and also try sharpening .
