Question about Canon Cameras

1 Answer

I bought a kit with a Canon EF 75-300 f/4-5.6 lens with a Vivitar Series 1 2XMC4 AF teleconverter. I have a Canon 6D. The camera reads F00 when hooked up and says there is no lens attached.

The teleconverter lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera, or to let the lens communicate with the camera. You have to use the manual exposure mode and set the exposure yourself.

SOURCE: Why do I get Error 99 in my Canon EOS 350 D?

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
If the “ERR 99′ message only appears when one particular lens is
attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99′ with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.

I have the canon 70 -300 sitting right here beside me on my XTi, it also fits my XSi and all my EOS mount film bodies. one thing about canon EOS lenses and bodies: They fit and work together. Yes there are cheaper lenses, but I just answered another question on this website from somebody who has a 3rd party lens (and a high quality lens ta-boot) that will not work on his canon. This is typical of canon. They do not release all of their codes to 3rd party manufactures. Your friend just bought a premium camera, do not let him put a lesser lens on the camera, he will not be happy and the savings will not be that significant to make up the difference...

Does my Sigma 28-105 mm Aspherical for film camera work on my Canon 5D Mark III?


If the Sigma lens mount is a Canon FD fitting then you can get an adapter FD to EF that will allow you to use the old lens in manual mode. If your camera isn't designed to take EF-s lenses then they will not fit on the camera. My EF-s lenses will not fit on my 6D.

C-af 1 2x teleplus mc7 will not auto focus with my 90-300mm canon ef lens on my canon d7 dslr. can you help please.


Teleconverter loses maximum lens speed.
With 2X teleconverter, your 90mm-300mm f4.5~5.6 will become something like f8~f11. Most SLR AF cameras need maximum aperture of f5.6 to autofocus so by using the 2X teleconverter on this zoom lens, it will not autofocus, because the lens's light gathering became too low.
Here is more information about using teleconverters.

My EFS17-85mm lens AF cannot focus steadily keeps on moving


I don't know your level of expertise...
Here goes. Your AF sensors in the camera need a certain amount of light to confirm focus. F/4-5.6 is a little dark, but under normal daylight its ok. Under darker conditions, it just can't get enough light to confirm focus, and it just keeps "hunting" for the correct focus. Using a teleconverter makes it even worse. The red focus assist beam sent out by that external flash unit only helps focus within about 20 feet.

Solution? Find a place with more available light, or buy one of the lenses with f/2.8 rating.

Thinking of buying a vivitar teleconverter


If the vivitar 2x is not autofocus, then you will obviously give up 90% of the cameras focus, metering and flash functions. All 2x lenses loose 2 stops of light so the f2.8 lens will now be f 8. If that is acceptable then it may be worth the few dollars to get double the power for the lens

Auto focusing problem


The D40 will only autofocus with the Nikkor AF-S lens...look for the AF-S in the lens title. For 3rd party lens, only SIGMA with the USM title will autofocus.

To use the T-adaptor...you will need to use the "Manual" mode of the camera.
