Question about Canon EOS 60D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon EOS 60D will not fire when using RC-6 Remote switch, I used the camera shutter timer as instructed as instructed by the instructions that came with the remote switch, when I fire the remote switch the camera fires but only after counting down the timer. It worked normally for about two months then while I was shooting it went to counting down. I tried removing the battery to see if it would reset that did not work.

I can't find the RC-6 remote switch. But in the EOS 60D manual they only refer to the RC-1 and RC-5. Is the RC-6 a new remote?

SOURCE: low battery warning

What type of batteries did you buy?

For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: remote shooting on Canon PowerShot A550

The software that comes with the A630 is generic to the whole series of cameras with different capabilities. Some have this feature, and some, like the A500 - A600 series, do not. Do not feel bad though. Many of the cameras that do have this capacity cannot do the photo-stitch picture merging that your camera does.

Hi there. i owned a Canon EOS 60D model camera. The problem is, its AF option is not working except Auto n 'C' modes. While i am trying to use it in M mode with AF, its not working but in auto mode an


Are you sure you did not put the AF/ MF switch in the wrong position? Although I don't think it would focus in Auto mode. In all other modes, are you sure you selected a (or more) focus point(s) in the centre of the frame?
When the selected focus point is on the side of the frame it won't focus on the parts you want it to focus. Then while pointing to the point you want the camera to focus, please press the shutter release button half and what till it focusses. Then press it the whole way down. Be aware the camera needs enough light to focus and certainly can't focus with a lens wit a min aperture of 6 or a larger number. On your 18-135 you can shoot at f16 because it will first focus on wide open and only close the aperture after you pressed the button.

How can I put my Cannon $40D camera to IR mode to use a wireless remote control


The IR mode is the timer mode.. On top the camera press the AF button while rotating the selection dial. You see the icon on top the camera switch from a single square, to several stacked squares, then to a clock with a been. That's the IR mode. if you press the shutter button you active the 10 second timer, air you have a IR trigger the camera will receive in in this mode.

Canon 550 ex speedlight - flashes okay. Won't sink with 60d (tried different cameras at dealer - same problem) Camera is okay .


Bruce,
Try these steps:
1. Set camera to manual2. Set shutter to 1/60
3. Set aperture to F5.6
4. ASA/ISO 200
5. 550EX on hotshoe
6. Do not set on slave or master
7. Turn on flash


Display must shows, ETTL.
If that doesn't work, you have to use the flash on manual.
Some of this model will not work fully on ATG Canon EOS-1D C, ATG Canon EOS-1D X IR, Canon EOS-1D X/60D/T4i because this flash is over 20 years old.


Unless you would want it to be modified by me.
But that can be costly when you can get the 580EX II for less than $425.00 USD.

EOS 1000D Incomplete boot. No visuals on screen, BUSY signal in view finder. Sometimes, the flash will fire.

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

Installation of this 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.
