Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

2 Answers

Wavy lines I have a first year digital rebel using the 18-55mm lense that came with it. Whenever I shoot a photo of a home, the siding and the roof lines are wavy. Also when taking interior photos, using the pop up flast, my pictures seem to turn out a little dark.

For the wavy problems, try eliminating camera processsing by taking the photos in raw format and viewing them with photoshop or some other photo software. If the waves are gone, it's the processing/compression algorithims on the camera. For pop-ups on interior shots, bump up the ios setting, increase the exposure time, get an external flash, or use try using the smallest appeture size on the lens.

I would suggest you to use the Manual settings. Play with the ISO and the shutter. You will get a better pic.

My cannon rebel eos DS6041 displays error 99 when

'Error 99' indicates some problem with the AF contacts. This is a common error in Canon lenses. It could indicate a very simple problem like dirty contacts or a much serious one like the breakage of USM cable.
As a first step, you can try cleaning the lens and body contacts (the metal contacts between the lens and body) using a pencil eraser. Be careful to hold the body facing down so that no dust falls inside. After cleaning both the lens and the body contacts, re-attach the lens and try shooting. If the AF does not work still, you need to take the lens to an authorized service center.

There is a minimal focusing distance for all lenses. If you move closer to the subject than that distance then the camera won't focus on it. Check you lens manual for minimal focusing distance. It is 11 inches for Canon EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 USM, for example.

I'm taking exterior shots of a building using the auto mode. The roof comes out wavy. Have an appointment shortly to take more pics. Why is this happening? (I miss my old SLR ...)

Cameras are subject to some unusual conditions due to lenses being round and the image you take being square. They work better the closer you are to the center of the lens. Normally you don't see this, but when you take a picture of something long and straight and it's near the edge of your picture, it can come up wavy or crooked.

You can recompose to avoid long straight things near the edge, or you can take several pictures and stitch them together in Photoshop. This will let you get the roofline more near the center of several pictures, and then after you stitch you can crop to make the photo the way you want.

You're dead on about the SLR, though. SLR's have bigger and better lenses, and on digital SLR's, the sensors are much bigger. This gives them huge advantages in how they focus light, and overall it makes the near edge lens issues less noticable.

Compatible lenses

All Canon EOS cameras (including the film Rebels and the digital Rebels) can use the same EF lenses.

There are some Canon lenses named EF-S that will only work with recent models of Canon digital SLR cameras, but EF lenses will work with all Canon digital SLRs.

Camera won't shoot with lens on Auto Focus

Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.
