Dark View Finder?

I have a Canon 350D with a Sigma 170 - 500 which i have been using for a year without problems until the other day and now the view finder is very dark? The shutter speed is now too slow to take photos. All my other lenses work perfectly fine. Please help?

The short answer is check the aperture. If the aperture is to high (it's using a big F Stop) it will slow down the shutter speed.

Canon 350D and Sigma 100 300 compatability?


Something is bad with the lens or it needs to have an upgraded circuit put it to make it compatible (if it is older). Usual cause of lens failure is the aperture unit. Almost impossible to get Sigma parts these days.

Does Sigma 70-300mm works on Canon EOS 350D?


Sigma makes lenses with a variety of camera mounts. A lens with a Pentax mount, for example, will not fit onto a Canon camera. Assuming you get the lens with the Canon mount, then it will work on the EOS 350D with full functionality.

Error 99 usually refers to a shutter error with the camera. It is most likely not your lens, but you can try it on another body just to be certain. Try PhotoTech Repair Service, in NYC.

How can you use the LCD screen in lieu of looking through the view finder to take pictures. This is for a Canon EOS Rebel XT.


Im afraid your camera does not have live view so therefore you will have to use the viewfinder to take your images and view them back on the lcd screen.

Canon Power Shot SX10 IS - I've had camera for about 4 months. As of a week ago, I can only use small view finder for taking photos; the 2.5 screen for viewing does not work now. Able to view photos...


You can reset the camera to factory settings. If after that, you still have the same problem, make valid the Canon warranty since it's 4 months old.

How do i get the picture to display on the lcd instead of using the view finder?


You can't do this on a D-SLr without Live View. The 350D does not have Live View. So you can't do this.

No picture.


Recheck everything about the camera.
Batteries, are they fresh, or fully recharged?
Too many problems without knowing more of what is happening, in my opinion.
