Canon EOS elan 7

My camera has decided to use the mirror lock up when in the flash mode. The custom feature is not set to do this in the program.

    Canon Elan 7n - camera started acting as though i had set it into Cfn 05-0, but I verified it was set to 05-0. Still mirror lockup occured and required me to press shutter button twice to get a picture. After some frustration, I simply press the shutter button very firmly and rapidly 10-12 times. Suddenly, the shutter started working properly!!!! Hurrah!! Only now the battery drains continuously as though the camera is on when it is really OFF!!!! Booooo!!! Help.

SOURCE: I have got an EOS Elan II E Film Camera (Cannon).

Hi, all canon EOS digital cameras can take all EF lenses. An EF lens from 1989 will fit a Digital body from 2009.
The newer EF-S lenses will only work with the smaller APS-C size sensors on the cheaper consumer bodies.
Hope this answers your query, please take the time to rate!

SOURCE: Sticky shutter blades

Canon EOS cameras manufactured in the late 1980s to early 1990s have an internal foam bumper for the shutter curtain which deteriorates with time, breaking down into an oily black tar. The tar oozes down and gets onto the shutter blades, causing them to stick. This results in the shutter either failing to open altogether or opening too slowly, resulting in blank or unexposed photographs.
cleaning procedure. Take a cotton swab and put a tiny bit of isopropyl alcohol or lighter fluid on it. Don’t drench it - you just want it slightly moist. Rub the tip of the swab on the oily patch, back and forth extremely lightly. You don’t want to apply any pressure, as the shutter curtain is fragile and easily bent and destroyed. Keep lightly rubbing the swab back and forth until the oil is entirely gone. Alcohol is a weaker solvent and so it may take a minute or two of gentle movement to dissolve the oil. Remember to do both sides of the shutter - you’ll have to move the mirror upwards to get the inner side, so don’t get any fingerprints on it. The easiest way to do this is to set the camera into mirror lockup mode (assuming your camera has the ability) and starting the self-timer.
That should fix the camera for the time being. Of course, the foam bumper is still there and continuing to degrade, so you’ll have to do this cleaning every now and again unless you pay to have it replaced. How often depends on your camera. Mine has gone for a year since the last cleaning without problems.

7ne mirror sticking in up position


Do you have mirror lockup on? Custom function 5, where 0 is disabled, 1 is enabled. If 0 then it needs repair.

Tip

Mirror Lock-Up


I use the hacked firmware 2 years ago. Then Custom Function (12) has been set for Mirror Lock-Up = [On]. Mirror Lock-Up only applys on Single Drive and Timer/Remote but not Continuous Drive mode. So I set to Continuous during normal use and immediately set to Single Drive mode for MUL for some shots that need it, e.g. long tele-lens in dim lights.

Camera will not turn on, even with new batteries


Do you get a flashing low battery symbol? If so, try setting it on P instead of the green rectangle. If it then operates then the shaft in the flash pivot is bent and not operating the flash switch.

Hi when I use the creative settings I push the shutter realese button the camera clicks but does not tak the picture until I realesa the button and press it again. Is ths a setting I need to change or is...


No fault of the camera it's has been programed in custom function #9 for mirror lock up. In mirror kock up mode first click of the shutter button locks up the mirror the second takes the shot and lowers the mirror. Mirror lock up is most often used while tripod mounted for extreme close ups or macro photography and also where a large telephoto lens is used. Mirror lock up is for reducing camera vibration during exposure. You can go into your custom function menu scroll to #9 and turn this off and all will return to normal.

Canon eos 50 flash


According to the manual, if you have the selector set in any of the "creative" modes (P, Av, Tv, M) the built in flash will only work if you press the button to pop up the flash. It also references a "hot shoe cover" which, if inserted into the hot shoe for external flash, will prevent the built in flash from working.

You can download the manual here. (The EOS Elan II is the same as the EOS 50.)
