Canon Elan II battery problem with the shutter door

Two things have gone wrong with this camera. Only one kind of battery seems to work the best which is the CR25 duricell and even with that battery being used now I get shutter lock up and must turn the dial to off and turn it back on again to have the shutter drop back down. I cleaned the battery terminals, purchased a battery pack and still the problem remains. Not sure if it is inside the Elan's circutry and is it worth fixing. I shot a whole roll of 36 at this years airshow and got nada. Each shot the shutter remained in the up position until I used the dial to off and then back on again. Any thoughts?

You have camera shutter problem if battery is good.
That's very common on camera when they go bad.
It's like a car timing belt snapped or the water pump decided not to turn.
Film cameras are very cheap now.

Which battery to use with eos elan?


The EOS Elan uses a single 6V lithium 2CR5 battery, which should be available at most department, electronics, and office-supply stores. If all else fails, you can buy it online from here.

I have got an EOS Elan II E Film Camera (Cannon). I want to know Cannon has camera with a digital body which suits the lens attachment of EOS Elan II E.


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!
