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.

When I take videos with my canon rebel, it stops recording after about 30 seconds. Do I have some settings set incorrectly?


If you are shooting video then you must have the Canon Digital Rebel T2i as the Rebel T2 is a film camera. Anyway I've checked through some data and your camera is capable of 29 minutes 59 seconds of video before shutting down due to heat. I would expect that your memory card is not a Class 6 or faster if it is then you may have forgotten to format the memory card to the camera it is being used in.

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.

Film Loading Error


This also happens to Yashicas often. (though instead of stirpping the film, it will rewind it back into the roll. Something's wrong with either the firmware or the drive system. It'll need to be taken to a camera repair shop, or you'll have to send it back to Canon for warranty service, if it's still within warranty.

Canon EOS Rebel K2 constant low battery indicator light


Canon also uses the low battery Icon as a generic error code. Try taking the lens off the camera. If this fixes the problem the lens needs a repair (most likely the aperture unit). If not then the camera needs the repair (either the shutter or dc-dc converter circuit).

Low battery warning


What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

Rebel 2000 went retarded


I got a Rebel 2000 off ebay, and it had the same problem. The Shutter wouldn't open, it showed dead batteries, and the mirror hung until I pressed the shutter button or changed modes.
After a good deal of surfing, I found that the most likely reason was a sticky/oily shutter
(http://photonotes.org/articles/oily-shutter/).
Since I didn't have much $$$ invested in the camera, I tried cleaning the shutter curtain with Qtips and alcohol. After a little cleaning, the shutter started to move. After a lot of cleaning, the shutter moves freely. I ran a roll of film through it, and it seems to be working just fine now.
