Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

I have very small problem with shutter curtain when I opened my Canon EOS Rebel G camera back. There are five pieces across. First (top), 2nd, and 5th pieces are in the right places but 3rd and 4th are crooking. Those two need to be adjusted or to be straighted. I know I can not touch them with my fingers. What do I need to move those two down to the right places. Those two on the left side are behind second piece. Thank you Janice

Whole curtain needs replacement.
Yes, you can put it back in place, but you'll have light leak.

How to turn off shutter sound


You can't. The sound is caused by a lot of moving parts within the T5i. The mirror reflex flips up, the leading edge of the shutter curtain moves across the frame, the trailing edge moves across the frame, then the mirror flips down. All this happens very quickly, and the sound can be dampened only so much.

How do i turn the shutter click off on the canon 400d digital camera?


The shutter on this camera is a physical apparatus that involves two 'curtains' moving across the focal plane to 'expose' the picture. It's mechanical, so what you hear is moving pieces -- it's not electonically created, and cannot be turned off.

My EOS 300d blank images


That problem is normally associated with having a too high shutter speed when using flash. If it happens in any mode, with or without flash you may have a shutter blind issue.

Test the camera at various shutter speeds and compare the results. If this black area is consistant across different shutter speeds, send it in for repair. It is most likely the shutter curtain not making a pass across the sensor fast enough, still obscuring the sensor when a photo was taken.

There is a problem with shutter curtain when I opened the camera back to put new film in. There are five pieces across. First (top), 2nd, and 5th pieces are in the right places but 3rd and 4th are...


Hi Janice, you really should take your camera in to a repair shop. That work should be done by a pro because you might get it right...and you might get it wrong. If your wrong, then you may as well toss it out the window.
If it were mine, I would attempt to push them back into place with a q-tip.
You have to remember though...why did they come apart in the first place? Is your camera missing a screw, and when you got them back in place (if you get them back in place), would it just happen again?
That's why you should take it to a pro. They will be able to fix why it happened in the first place. Hope this helps.

Digital rebel XS - flash delay


Your camera is set to syncronize the flash on the second shutter curtain. Check your custom functions/custom settings, and disable it. It's called "second curtain sync" or "2nd curtain sync". Nikon call it "Rear Sync".
Hope this helps,

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.

Canon EOS Rebel G - The picture is cut in half


I'm afraid this is almost certainly a shutter fault - the second curtain of the focal-plane shutter is getting stuck half-way across the film and therefore not shutting properly. The fact that the other half of each frame is OK makes me think that the second curtain is not sticking totally but just moving very slowly for half of its run, thus seriously overexposing that half of the film. This is a repair shop job - unless you want to try it yourself: it may be just some dirt stuck in the track the shutter curtain runs in, but a fair bit of skill is needed to get to it & clean it without damaging anything!

Digital rebel / SLR photos are nearly all black


If the camera still "operates normally" with recorded pictures while they are all black, you try to select CMOS Cleaning to see if the shutter really opens or not. If not, a plastic lever operates the first set of curtains had broken. This could be common for all plastic shutter except EOS 1 series which use metal.

Picture nearly all black


Lets see if the shutter curtains are opening properly : set to B and open the film back of the camera. Now release shutter and see if the first s. curtain has opened nicely and swiftly. Then release the second s. curtain and again see if you get proper closing of the curtain. If the shutter curtains ( usually just one misbehaves ) is slow to close then the shutter unit needs looking at . ( btw no point pouring liquids like benzine etc. into the shutter curtain are ... will make things worse ).
