Question about Canon EOS Rebel T2 with 28-90 lens 35mm Film Camera

1 Answer

Dark pictures I have a Canon EOS REbel T2 with the standard 28-90 lens. It had been working fine, but now my pictures are (almost all) coming out very dark and grainy. Further, I note that if I turn the camera 90 degrees to that a "portrait" picture -- 6" tall and 4" wide, I see a dark rectangle in the picture in the bottom right quadrant. I always set the camera to full program (the green rectangle). I have been using Fuji 400 speed file of late. Do you have any idea what I"m doing wrong?

Re: dark pictures

Check whether the ISO rating set in the camera is correct. Also, if the images are grainy and dark, it may be an issue with the exposure.

Canon EOS Rebel T2 - film loaded, but then wouldn't take a picture, the frame count was flashing on screen. What is the problem?

Hi. Open the camera back and pull the film further over towards the pick up spool, close the back and try again to take a photo, i had the same problem with an eos 650 and it always worked.Good luck.

Very dark pictures

hi melissa,
your problem is the focusing areas, im sorry that I do not know how to turn it off, the rectangle you see is the area is focusing on, and the darkness is what the camera doesnt focus on, try reading the manual, or turning it off yourself.

I bought this canon rebel t2 film camera recently and used film with ASO 400. Portraits look ok. but the landscapes, especially the sky area look dark and grainy. I used ef 28-135mm usm lens. Any solutions...

That's odd that the pictures would be coming out under exposed unless the previous owner has gone into the camera functions and switched the ISO from auto to manual. Another reason is that the exposure compensation has been activated and set for - exposure

Under "normal" use the camera will read the DX code on the film canisters and adjust the ISO automatically. However the previous owner may have shut this off in preference to setting the ISO manually. Even though you have ISO 400 in the camera the ISO on in the camera setting may be ISO 1600.

Checking for the Auto ISO and exposure compensation is fairly easy as you can see the film canister through the film window or you know you have loaded 400 speed film. on the LCD panel at the back of the camera is an ISO icon and exposure compensation.

Make sure the ISO for the camera is the same as what you have loaded and if the exposure compensation is to the right of 0 then the resulting picture will be dark. Move this back to the Zero.

I wasn't able to find an exact manual (if you don't have one) for your camera but have found a camera with similar. Here is a ling for that manual.

Hope this was a help

How long has this camera been out? I'm shopping

The Canon Rebel T2i was announced on Feb 08, 2010 and Canon just started shipping the DSLR. Your salesperson was thus correct.
The DSLR is also known as EOS 550D. It differs from the previously model by:
  • Higher resolution 18MP CMOS with gapless micro lenses
  • ISO 6400 no longer in 'expanded' range (12,800 max remains the same)
  • Redesigned buttons and new movie/live view button
  • Customizable auto ISO ranges
  • Improved 63 zone metering (iFCL)
  • 3:2 format screen with more pixels
  • Improved movie functionality
  • Slightly higher burst shooting rate (though buffer holds fewer shots)
  • HDMI control (CEC)
  • SDHX Compatible

    Was everything set automatic?
    Was it a cloudy day?
    Did you take pictures in the sun of an object in shadow?
    Are your indoor pictures normal?
    If you are sure everything was OK, no shadows, no bright objects in the picture, ISO was not set 400, flash was not forced on, etc., call Canon. There are adjustments that calibrate the camera for outdoors. It may need to be recalibrated.

    Low battery warning

    What type of batteries did you buy?

    For digital cameras, you want to use batteries with high milliamp hour (mah) rating: "2500 mah" if they are rechargeable.

    If you bought regular batteries, you want to use good quality. Look for the "e2" or "better for digital equipment" type.

    Does the camera have a DC power plug option? Try taking pictures with it plugged in if it does. If it still malfunctions with power right from the wall, then you bought a bad camera.

    Canon EOS Rebel T2 300X Won't Autofocus or Take Picture. I can manually focus and take a picture, but when autofocus is on, it focuses for a second and then goes out of focus and won't let me snap a...

    This may be a problem with the autofocus itself, try the following:

    • If you have a different lens, see if the autofocus works with the other lens. If it does, there may be something wrong with your lens.
    • Clean the contacts (the little metal things between the lens and the camera) with a slightly moist, lint-free cloth
    • Try replacing the battery in the camera
    If none of this helps, you may have to take your camera to a qualified repair person to get them to have a look at it.

    Good luck!
