Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
I've had my canon 350D for five years now, and it's always worked like a charm. I have the original battery that came with the camera, plus another that I purchased a year or two ago. Last week out of nowhere I'm taking pictures and the original battery goes completely dead. So I switch to the other battery, and at first everything is fine. After taking a few shots with full battery life, I turned the camera off for a minute or two and then turned it back on again and the battery was already flashing a warning that it was nearly dead. I crossed my fingers and ordered a new battery and charger, hoping that it was just a coincidence. But after trying that one out too, I am having the same problem. It happens after I turn the camera off and back on again.
I have a lot of time and money invested in this camera, so this is extremely upsetting to me. Please tell me if there is something I can do.
Sounds to me like the moisture then. Look for those little sachets of Silica Gel desiccant, you get them with a lot of electronic goods in the boxes these days.
Keep one near the lens and one near the camera, they will prevent moisture getting near your precious lenses. I always keep a lens attached to my camera when in the bag, if you unhook everything and just rely on the body and lens caps you may find it makes the problem worse.
Hope it all works out you, regards
