It can be cleaned but you must be careful and gentle. The surface is silver and is easily damaged.

1. Blow any dust off with canned air for cameras.
2. Wet, do not soak, a foam swab with camera lens cleaner.
3. Gently wipe mirror from side to side.
4. Replace swab when dirty.
5. Repeat as necessary.
6. Gently dry with dry swab.

Can i use any film for my Canon EOS Rebel SLR Mark 2 or will anyone work?


You can use any 35mm film in any 35mm camera. You must set the film speed (ASA or DIN number) on the camera to match what it says on the film. This is to get the correct exposure, as different films have different sensitivities.

On the EOS Rebel XS 35mm you cannot update the firmware. It's possible on later Digital Rebel models, but not on the 35mm film versions.

Hi, I have a canon eos rebel xs. the mirror is kind a dirty, can it be cleaned by me or need to have it cleaned at canon service centers?s I also have a Tamron Telephoto lens, when I do a full zoom in...


This is a digital camera and I suspect it's not the mirror that's showing dirt it's the sensor. If you are seeing small bits of dirt on your pictures then it's dirt on the sensor. I would suggest having it cleaned at a camera store or repair facility if you are not comfortable with doing it yourself. Cleaned improperly can damage the sensor and renter the camera pretty well useless. The dirt inside the Tamron lens I would also suggest cleaning and if you are getting an error message you may as well send the camera in for a complete cleaning. There are kits on the marked to clean the sensors but again if you are not confident that you can do this then sent it to people that can and do it on a regular bases.

My cannon eos rebel x 35mm wont take pictures on auto focus acts like the timing is off. Works fine on manual focus. Have already tried different lenses, batteries, and cleaning.


Your AF module needs to be replaced. Or maybe the mirror part that bounces light to the AF module.

Another possible issue is light. The AF sensors need a certain amount to light to be able to see if its in focus. Some lenses don't allow that much light to pass, so the sensors can't focus the lens. Try a lens that passes more light, like the 50mm f/1.8 or point your lens at a very bright scene.

If increasing the light level doesn't solve it, it needs repair. You might check Ebay for a "parts" Rebel to have spare parts for your good one.

White balence


The EOS Rebel K2 is a film camera. White balance settings on digital cameras are an electronic 'adjustment' to the image sensor. In film cameras, the film is the image sensor. So white balance is dependent partially on the film you're using, but more often on the filters you add to the lens to correct for various lighting conditions and light sources.
