I've read that some of the "Handymen" out there have taken the faceplate off the T70 and put LocTite on the screws to hold them in place. OMG--not for me. Look on the web for a Canon authorized service center. I only paid $15 for my secondhand T70. I just leave the 500mm bazooka lens off it. A modest lens up to 135mm should be okay. Good luck.

Lens mount is shaky


remove front cover (four screws, one front, two sides, and one bottom), plus loosen two screws holding door latch plate and lift plate up slightly so front cover will lift free (plate has tabs that fit in slots in front cover. Do not lift up too high, just enough to slide cover free). Tighten four metal mount screws and re-attach front cover

Sigma 2x tele converter is loose


I had an issue with my Sigma 1.4X TC where it became loose after several years of use. I fixed min as follows:

On the camera-mount side (where TC attaches to camera) I removed the tiny four screws. Then I very carefully lifted up the metal mount being careful not to damage the ribon cable which is attached to it. I DID NOT complete remove it, I just tilted it up so as not to damage the cable. I then tightened the 3 screws that I found below that as all three were loose. I think that there may be four screws, but I could only see 3 of them without removing the plate further. after tightening the screws and replacing the metal plate and the four screws holding it, the mount was again tight and the attached lens functioned normally.

What is a "bayonet type


At one time, removable lenses for SLR cameras screwed on and off. Later, a "bayonet" type connection made it much easier for the lens to be aligned properly and changed quickly. A quarter-turn and "click"...it was in place.

Dropped my canon t70 and the lens is all broken; can it be repaired if the body is still working fine?


The lens should be removable

I am not familar with your exact camera, but I would suspect you have what is call a bayonet mount.
Look for a button around the lens in the body, push it, twist the lens.
I have acouple old lenses from my Alpa 9d (Dead) will they fit?

Ordered lens for Canon T70 camera


Hi there and welcome to FixYa.

Check on the box. Your camera has an FD mount. The lens you need to use also has to fit the Canon FD mount. If the lens you received is not an FD mount lens...send it back.

Thanks for coming to FixYa.

Camera dropped an the lens broke off the camera


I have the same problem - the plastic bayonet lugs are the weak point on the lens assembly, but better that then breaking the camera body mating ring. I've dissasembled the rear of the lens and will try to reglue the two split lugs with cyanoacrylate glue. Be very careful not to mix up the 3 different types of screws, avoid damage to the multi-contact plate ribbon cable, and to not to loose the backfocus shims! Cheers.

EF 24-70 lens droop...


The zoom creep is an easy fix for Canon. I really do not recommend trying to tighten it yourself, since that would void your warranty.
It is usually free to tighten the zoom ring.

Lens is loose from body


One note on this fix. There are four screws that need to be tightened on the lens. With the cover off and the lens pointing straight forward, there are three small screws visible. After tightening them, rotate the lens upward to expose the fourth screww. After that one is tightened, you can then replace the cover and six cover screws.
