Question about Canon EOS Rebel XS 35mm SLR Camera
I took a whole roll of film and only 2 turned out. all the others looked the exact same with a blur spot in each frame
Hi Steph Johnson,
Numerous things could be the issue. 1, dirty lens, clean the front and back element, 2. The camera focus is not working properly not focusing on the correct spot. So, are you manual focusing or auto focusing? If it is auto then there could be an issue with that. If your are manual focusing are you sure your diopter setting is correct for your eyes, if not then it may appear correct in the viewfinder, yet be off focus.
Do you have a way to check the lens on a DSLR? If so you can try that lens on the DSLR seeing if there is an error with the lens or if it is your film camera.

It likely did not catch when it was first loaded, and as such never advanced through the camera. Open the back of the camera, with no film in it, then set the shutter speed to 1, advance the film advance lever and take a shot. You should see the shutter curtains open and then close a second later. Then advance the film lever again and watch to see that the sprockets are turning. If they are, then the camera is exposing and the mechanics are working properly to advance the film. Chances are it was just loaded incorrectly.

The camera shouldn't be doing this, assuming you're using 36 exposure (or 24 exposure) film. You may want to set a custom function to prevent automatic rewind -- you would have to rewind the film yourself by pressing the rewind button.
To do this:
1. Under the palm grip, press the 'CF' (custom function) button.
2. Use the main dial to select 'F1' in the LCD. It should show a '0' below the 'F1'.
3. Press the 'CF' button to change the '0' to a '1'.
4. Press the shutter button half way to save the change and exit the custom function setting mode.
If you want to stop the rewind with the film leader still exposed (film doesn't rewind entirely into the cannister), use the same steps but set custom function 'F2' to a value of '1'.

Completely. The shutter is badly damaged and I'll be very surprised if your fix has permanently cured it, but fingers crossed... If not, there's only one fix. Chuck the camera away (spare shutter assemblies are nearly as rare as hens' teeth/fresh **** ****) and replace it. There are loads of T-series bodies and later Canon EOS triple digit/Rebel models available for free just by asking on FreeCycle and Freegle. Note that the lens mount used on the T-series is different to the Canon Autofocus mount used on later models. Also plenty of all the other makes as well. You may have to wait and to ask a few times, but it's where I still get the majority of my 35mm film camera equipment.
