Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera
When I take the picture the output of the film is cut in half. Half of the portion is black and the other half has clear picture.
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!
