Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
I picked up a canon 350d xt rebel and the first owner stated that he droped the camera and the flash stopped working but the camera still takes good photo. when you put the camera in the auto setting and you need the flash it will not come up and you get the message errer 99. I wanted to know if i use a add on flash would the solve my problem
The "error 99" is a general error on Canon cameras meaning "something's gone wrong and I don't know what to do about it". If you get them all the time, the camera is effectively dead and must go back to Canon for a service repair (circa £175 if I remember correctly).
If the error 99 only happens when you try to pop up the flash, but otherwise the camera can take good pictures, then yes, an external flash unit could well solve your problem. With an external flash on the hot-shoe, the internal flash is completely bypassed and the camera will never try to pop it up.
I recommend taking your camera to a shop such as Jessops and ask to try out a flash gun to be sure.
