I have a Minolta XG-A camera, and i can take a picture but the shutter is stuck?

My shutter does that when there is low light, or just slow shutter speed. You could try changing those settings, otherwise, last time mine got stuck, I loosened a screw on the bottom right under the shutter release button and the shutter just snapped back into its place.

I'm using a Canon EOS Rebel X S 35mm SLR What setting should i set my camera for a manual shutter speed?

If your camera is a Rebel XS you should have a dial on the top right with a series of letters and icons. To set your camera so you manually control the shutter speed turn this dial too "TV" (Time Value). This setting will allow you to select the shutter speed and the aperture will open or close to achieve the correct exposure. The "M" is (Manual) where you would select both the shutter speed and aperture "AV" is (Aperture Value) where the user selects the aperture they want and the shutter speed increases or decreases to obtain a proper exposure. The "P" (Program) mode allows the camera to automatically select the shutter speed and aperture

How do I change the shutter speed on a Nikon EM film SLR

The EM doesn't really have a manual shutter speed setting. It does have a Bulb setting for long exposures and a 1/90 second manual for flash, but otherwise the camera automatically sets the shutter speed to go with the currently selected aperture.

Normally you would set the aperture and let the camera set the shutter speed. You can adjust the shutter speed by pressing the exposure compensation button for +2 stops. You can also adjust the exposure by changing the ASA/ISO setting.

If you need a manual, you can download one from

All run well (shutter-exposure-drive) except for mirror

it sounds like its set up for a very slow shutter speed
ie:30sec's? and your getting triger happy trying to rush it to take the photo and get it over with, check when film speed its set on and what shutter speed its set to,and stop poking the mirror about or its going to cost you big time bucks getting it fixed,

Black strip across the top of the picture

I can tell you exactly what is happening. This is probably either happening when you are taking a photo with a flash? The maximum flash sync your camera has is 1/125 or 1/60 of a second. If you set your shutter speed faster than that, you shutter closes too slow and creates that black strip. Put the shutter speed to 1/60 or slower and see if that happens. If you have a long lens on the camera, you have to have the shutter speed either equal or less than the focal length to shutter. 50mm lens=1/50 a second without a flash. Otherwise you could have a bent or broken shutter curtain blade. Maybe someone stuck their finger in there.
He can fix it if you blades are broken.

Photos have streaks

Sounds like you are shooting at shutter speeds of 1/30th of a second or slower, and/or your flash unit is set to "slow sync" or a similar mode. Try shooting in shutter priority or manual, and using a speed of at least 1/60th but not more than F4's sync speed of 1/250th. If you are shooting a moving subject, you may find that this "problem" actually creates some very interesting effects.

Shutter Speed

If your shutter speeds are off you can compensate by changing the film speed setting,
quicker ( than should be ) shutter speeds require you to set the film speed to slower ASA .. KC

Shutter speed

shutter speed has nothing to do with battery power. If you have a SLR camera you use the shutter speed option when you want to have control of the shutter speed, slow shutter speed means if your taking a picture of a waterfall and you want to see the actual droplets you set a slow shutter speed, if you want it to look more smooth/flowing you set a faster shutter speed, if you do not have a SLR camera you probably dont have much say so in shutter speed...

Nikon FE

TRy firing the camera in the M90 setting. If it fires properly, use the battery test switch. If the battery LED doesn't light up, replace the batteries (2 MS76 type). The FE requires healthy batteries to operate the shutter. If the meter is calling for a slow shutter speed (low light or lens cap still on?). If the batteries are good, but the shutter still won't fire normally in sufficient light, looks like you're in for a repair shop visit.

Two possibilities : 1 ) your film was not properly loaded into the pick up spool and hence it was transported or exposed ; what you took to the lab was unexposed film. 2) the shutter is not opening and again no exposure takes place. To check this open back , set to slow speed like 8th of a second, and see if the shutter opens and closes properly. If the shutter does not open then it will have to go in, unfortunately. Cost ? If it is just an adjustment ( as I suspect is the case ) you should not pay more than $ 100.
