Question about Canon Photography

Open Question

Does a Canon Datematic camera operate without batteries?

I happen to own five of the same cameras. As stated in my heading I would like to know if the Canon Datematic camera will work without batteries when not in the AUTO mode. None of these will work when taken off the Auto mode. I assume all settings for the f stops require a battery in each slot. They take two batteries for some reason
Any replies are most welcomed from anyone that knows

The lens aperure ring must be set to the highest number, ( IE, smallest aperture, f22,f32 ) for the camera to work in full auto. Also, with the ASA set to DX, the camera will not release without film.

SOURCE: No display at all. But able to take pictures with Canon A75

Sounds like you might have accidentally turned the display off. Turn on the camera and press the DISP button once on the back of your camera.

SOURCE: Canon SD 550 does not work when flash setting is ON

I have the same problem. Cannon customer support says it will fix this for $119 + 8 for shipping... or you can get a refurbished SD 800is for $140+10 for shipping with w/ a 6 month warranty... what a deal ;~)

Does the Velbon cx-300 fit most camera's


If your camera has a 1/4" thread socket on the baseplate, it can be fitted to the pan and tilt head in the illustration of this tripod provided by a Google search. The manual should give you definitive information if you are still not sure.
