Question about Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

Nothing shows up on the film!

I just got my Rebel 2000 for a camera class, and I used two different rolls of film. I was just messing around since I don't know much, but I used a black and white film, and a fuji film color film. Both were 400. Fact is, I played around wasting both rolls, and when I went to Rite Aid to get them developed today, they showed me that there was nothing at all on the film!

Could this be a setting or something I did wrong?! Or was it simply that there's something wrong with the camera? I bought it used at Service Photo in Baltimore city.

I appreciate any help I can get.

    The film did wind fully in and I mounted it correctly. The camera said exactly how many exposures the film had (36 for black and white) and (24 for color). The black and white was Ilford Delta 400 Professional film. Every time I took a shot the counter counted down. I'm not positive if I had it set correctly or not, but wouldn't something have shown on the film at all?



    I'm taking a class for this and the first actual day we use the camera hasn't started yet. I don't know anything really about taking pictures so I was goofing off. I don't know if it was Dx coded or not.



    Does it sound like something I did? Or is it what I fear, the camera.



    Thanks

    How did you mount the film? Did the film wind into the camera when you loaded it? Was the frame counter advancing? What setting have you used to take the images? Did you hear the 'clicking' sound? Also check if your film is DX coded (you will see silvered rectangular segments on the film canister). If not, you need to manually set the ISO to 400 when using an ISO 400 film.

The Ilford Delta 400 Professional is indeed DX coded. Since the camera does not allow you to check the shutter without film inside, there's no way we can confirm the shutter is working properly. So only option is a service center. Since all other things are working properly, it should be a simple repair.

Camera keeps sucking the film back into the canister instead of loading it


Check the bottom DX pin in the film chamber. These get bent easily and it is also used for the film detect switch so that the camera knows there is film in the camera.

Can i use any film for my Canon EOS Rebel SLR Mark 2 or will anyone work?


You can use any 35mm film in any 35mm camera. You must set the film speed (ASA or DIN number) on the camera to match what it says on the film. This is to get the correct exposure, as different films have different sensitivities.

Hello, Please help me I love my camera! The last 3 rolls of film I have taken only the last half of the roll come out the first part of the film is black I'm only getting half of the pictures I take. It's...


Most likely this is a shutter problem. If you are using flash and getting the half pictures, then make sure the flash is a canon compatible flash and the synch is set to 60th. If the problem is all the time including non-flash pictures, then the shutter will have to be repaired.

Go into a darkened bedroom, dive under the thickest covers you can muster, with the camera. Open the camera back. You can now remove the cassette and unwind the film from the take-up spool (press the rewind button to free it) and wherever it has got caught up. Using the spindle on the cassette, wind the film back into the cassette. Now you can get out from under the covers and breathe again! Examine the camera mechanism to see if there's anything obviously untoward. Take it back to the camera shop & get them to check it out for you. If necessary, buy a cheap roll of film, put it through the camera until it jams (you can repeat this several times with the same roll if necessary). Then you can open the back in daylight & see what's going wrong - or, again, take it to the shop for help. They may want to send it for repair like that: if so send it with a note that the film is trashed & they can just open the back in daylight.

The film automatically loads then rewinds when a new film canister is added


Hm. Well, the way this camera works is actually very clever. When you first load a film into it, it winds the entire film out of the cassette and into the camer. As each shot is taken, the film is rewound back into the film cassette. The advantage of this is that if the back of the camera is accidentally opened, the shots which have already been taken are already safely back in the film cassette and will not be damaged by the light ingress. However, your camera is behaving strangely. I would check that the electrical contacts where the film cassette goes in are clean. You can clean them using a cotton bud moistened with methylated spirits.
