Question about Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

Canon EOS Rebel T2 - film loaded, but then wouldn't take a picture, the frame count was flashing on screen. What is the problem?

Hi, I am new to this camera. When shooting film last, I used an old-school slr. The film loaded fine, but when I went to take a photo (manual mode) the camera wouldn't shoot and the frame count and shooting mode were flashing on the back screen. Can you help me troubleshoot this?

Hi. Open the camera back and pull the film further over towards the pick up spool, close the back and try again to take a photo, i had the same problem with an eos 650 and it always worked.Good luck.

SOURCE: canon eos digital canon rebel xti - LCD won't work when shooting

Most DSLR cameras (like your Canon) don't have a live view - in other words, you can't "see" the image before you capture it. You must use the viewfinder.

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.

Check the playback menu that the review time has not been set to OFF. This will stop any pictures displaying on the back of the camera when taking them!

I leave mine at 2 secs which is long enough to quickly review and keeps the battery life up. If I need to review for longer, just use playback.

The flash won't come on if you have the camera in any of the creative modes (i.e. A-DEP, M, AV, TV or P). You can manually use it by pressing the flash button just above the lens release button on the front of the camera.

SOURCE: canon rebel t1i eos 500. After I shoot a picture

Is your card old or very full of pictures? Is your card "cheap" and slow? Download your pics to your computer and then format the card in the camera to completely erase and optimize it...see if that helps.

Yes, you should be able to use them. Be aware, moving to digital there is a 1.6 crop factor. The means your 100 mm lens will have the field of view (FOV) of a 160 mm. No, it does not mean it is a 160 mm it is the fFOV is the same as a 160 mm. Also, at the other end is were you will most want to purchase a wide angle lens.
Example: your 28 mm film lens now has the FOV of 44.8, not wide angle. As you can see wide angle is where the move to digital crop sensor cameras lose out. To get back to wide angel you would need a 17 mm lens, that would give you 27.2 mm FOV.
To figure FOV take the lens multiply it by the crop factor. On a Canon it is 1.6, on a Nikon it is 1.5, the 4/3 sensor is 2.0.

Film will not fully load


On many of the film Rebels, mine is the T2, the film is completely unwound. As we take pictures the film is rewound in to the film cassette. That is a film safety feature. If the back if the camera accidentally opens we only expose unused frames. The frames we took are safe in the cassette.

Very dark pictures


hi melissa,
your problem is the focusing areas, im sorry that I do not know how to turn it off, the rectangle you see is the area is focusing on, and the darkness is what the camera doesnt focus on, try reading the manual, or turning it off yourself.

How long has this camera been out? I'm shopping


HI,
The Canon Rebel T2i was announced on Feb 08, 2010 and Canon just started shipping the DSLR. Your salesperson was thus correct.
The DSLR is also known as EOS 550D. It differs from the previously model by:
  • Higher resolution 18MP CMOS with gapless micro lenses
  • ISO 6400 no longer in 'expanded' range (12,800 max remains the same)
  • Redesigned buttons and new movie/live view button
  • Customizable auto ISO ranges
  • Improved 63 zone metering (iFCL)
  • 3:2 format screen with more pixels
  • Improved movie functionality
  • Slightly higher burst shooting rate (though buffer holds fewer shots)
  • HDMI control (CEC)
  • SDHX Compatible

    Film fast forwards


    This is normal operation for the Canon Rebel film cameras, they are designed to pre-wind the film so each time you take a picture the camera winds it into the film cartridge. This means if the camera has a problem or the film door gets opened by accident your pictures are safe in the canister.
