Question about Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera

1 Answer

Switched to MAC - have EOS40D and SX100 - will not download SX100

We just switched to a Mac.  It seems we could download the EOS 40D and the PS SX-100IS with the same software. Installed Canon EOS Digital Solutions DIsk Ver 17.1 (that came with 40D) and downloaded 40D pictures to Mac ok.  (It has EOS Utility 2.3)
Did not install Image Browser - since already has good image display in Mac.
Then connected SX-100 to same USB - it brings up EOS Utility but will not download.  Only the 'Monitor Folder' icon is active - as if there is no camera connected.
Can I use the same EOS Utility to download SX100 - or do I need to Install the CD that came w/SX-100 (EOS Utility 1.1)??  
Can BOTH run on same computer??

Yes, you need to install the SX100 driver software as well. I wouldn't overwrite older versions of the Canon software, though, so do a selective install if you can.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

  1. Follow this link to download a pdf version of the firmware installation instruction guide.
  2. Follow this link to download the Windows Version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  3. Follow this link to download the MAC version of the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D firmware version 1.06 update.
  4. Follow this link to download the Canon EOS Rebel XS / Canon EOS 1000D Instruction Manual.

I hope that helps.

Mac won't recognise canon drive


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to a Windows computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download this camera photo recovery software

Install and open the photo recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Start' button.

I have a eos40D, when in AF it wont focus nor shoot pics


Hi. Good Camera... Not being funny.. But do you have the instruction manual. If not first try resetting the camera. Once done, if you can live without live view don`t bother setting it up.
How to reset:-
-set the mode to manual
-press menu, scroll to the third yellow box with the spanner icon.
-scroll to Clear all camera settings,choose clear and confirm your choice.
When you are shooting make sure your lens is switched in AF mode.
Try this first and get back to me.

Lost autofocus on 40D when using ST-E2 and 2 580EX


Try taking the battery out and putting it back in. If that doesn't work try cleaning the len's contact sesnors with a pencil eraser.

Every time I attempt to take a picture with my cam EOS40d, I get an error 99.I turn of the camera but error keeps appearing.


Check for clean lens to body gold contacts.
Take the lens off the camera. Look at the gold contacts that are in the body and on the lens. Many times, it's a simple process of rubbing a pencil eraser on these to remove dirt/film on them to allow proper contact. BE CAREFUL not to allow eraser crumbs to fall in the camera body. You can tip the opening slightly downward while you're cleaning... a lens brush can help remove any crumbs too
Let me know if it clears up your error.

Permanent error 06. 17-85 lens damaged when an


It most likely was a short in the repaired lens that caused the sensor to go bad over time.

I have been shooting with Canon cameras and lenses for many years and I do not always turn off power before switching lenses. It is not a big deal.

EOS40D Autofocus won't work in creative modes


Your AF sensor is probably defective. 40D's are notorious for their horrid focusing and connection solders.

If it is still under warranty, I suggest using it.

Eos 40d error 99


Error 99 can mean many things. Have you installed the latest firmware for the camera (version 1.1.1)? If you don't have, download it here (for equipment purchased in USA or Puerto Rico):

http://web.canon.jp/imaging/eosd/eos40d/eos40d-firmware-e.html

If you have the latest firmware, try this:

  1. Switch off the camera and remove the CF card and battery
  2. Keep the camera idle for 30 min
  3. Clean all the contacts of the camera (battery contacts, lens contacts etc) with an eraser. Do this keeping the camera facing down so that no debris fall into the camera.
  4. Attach the lens and insert the battery.
  5. Switch on the camera
  6. Insert the CF card
  7. If the error persists, format the card again
  8. If this does not work, try using another CF card.

You need to return it to the place of purchase as a defective model and get them to exchange it for a new unit, or else send it in for warranty repair.
