Re: Blank picture along with Stabilization error

You need to send your camera in. This is something that can't be fixed at home. Call repairs at 800-706-2534 option 2 and they can tell you where to send it.

New batteries are not lasting longer than a day

Battery life can fluctuate greatly from day to day. It all depends on the type of photography you are doing. For example, on one day, you spent the day taking pictures outside in the sunlight, with no flash, and didn't use your camera's screen to review any of the pictures. The next day, you spent the day inside, taking lots of pictures using the flash, zooming in and out on people's faces and reviewing the pictures using the camera's screen.
Features like the flash, zoom, LCD screen and image stabilization (IS) use a great deal more battery life than if you were to not use any of those features. This could explain why it suddenly seems like the batteries aren't lasting more than a day.
However, if your photography habits have not changed enough to potentially affect battery life, there could be an issue with either the image stabilization hardware or the standby mode of the camera. If the image stabilization (a fully mechanical feature) is malfunctioning, it could be activating when it shouldn't be, such as when the camera is on but you aren't about to take a picture.
I would try testing the camera by taking pictures using different camera settings.
  1. Turn off the flash and image stabilization, use the viewfinder instead of the LCD live view mode, do not zoom in or out. Take as many pictures as you can before the batteries die.
  2. Keep the flash and image stabilization on, use the LCD live view mode, use the zoom frequently. Take as many pictures as possible before the batteries die.
With test #1, you should see much better battery life than with test #2. If you still experience decreased battery life either way, there may be a hardware issue with the camera. Should this be the case, contact Canon Support to find out whether or not your manufacturer's warranty covers this problem.

Whenever i on the camera some sound is coming while taking pictures only,it is not coming when iam looking the snaps after that

Camera noise can be common during autofocus, image stabilization, and of course pressing the shutter release. It seems possible that the noises you noticed are part of normal the normal photo taking process, since you only hear them when taking a photo, not when reviewing photos (a process which doesn't use autofocus, image stabilization or the shutter release).

If you're not experiencing any problems taking photos, the sound may just be part of normal camera operation. However, if you're still concerned, I recommend you take your camera to your local camera store to have an expert listen to the sounds.

Exilim digital camera EX-Z850/image stabilization

This camera is going to shut that feature off each time you shut the camera off. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do to "lock it" in on this model. Sorry.

L.How important is it that I update firmware 1.0.4 to 1.08 on my 40D slr? 2. Is there an adapter that will work with FD lenses and the 40D?

The firmware update (Version 1.0.8) incorporates the following improvements and fixes.
1.Fixes a phenomenon in which Image Stabilization operation emits a sound when certain buttons are pressed, with the EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens attached to the camera.
2.Fixes a phenomenon in which the Image Stabilization operation emits a sound from the lens when IS lenses are attached to the camera.
3.Fixes a phenomenon in which a part of the image looks unnatural when reviewed on the LCD.
4.Corrects errors in the Spanish and Norwegian menu screens.

So if your camera is working properly for your purposes, and you don't use any IS lenses, you don't really need to update the firmware.

In answer to your second question, I don't think so. All EOS cameras communicate with the lenses completely electronically, and so work with any EF or EF-S lens. You may be able to find an adapter which would physically match an FD lens with an EOS camera, but all settings would have to be done manually on both the camera and the lens, and it would definitely be trial and error. The metering function in the camera depends on receiving a lot of information from the lens to get the correct exposure.

Problem with image stabilization?

hi there
It is a regular problem with cameras that have a lot of zoom; optical or digital. a very little shaking of hands can really blur the image.
Image stabilization actually supposed to help. But if you are Ok with it off, that's great.
i would recommend resting your elbow on something solid (like someone's shoulder or a wall or anything like that.
One more thing - try inhaling and holding your breath at the moment you press the shutter release.
The best solution would be to buy a Tripod; even better would be to buy one which has a remote wired control.
take care and enjoy blur free images..

Image Stablization not functioning

Image stabilization cannot correct for movement of the subject (fan). Image stabilization only corrects for movement of the camera/photographer. If you take a picture of the ceiling fan with the flash turned on, or set the ISO to a higher number, you will see that the fan is less blurred because you have increased the shutter speed.

Image Stabilization not functioning

The stabilization is not for moving objects! To freeze a picture of a moving object, you need to raise the shutter speed and open the apature accordingly. Refer to the light metering in the camera for proper exposure. For faster speed, you really need more light.

The stabilization is for when you hold the camera. It helps prevent camera movements by the photographer to show in the pictures.

Just take care that the image stabilization has its limits.

Resetting EX-V7 error message

Hey Go here
Download the latest firmware. Install it. Like the rest of the people. It seems like we all dropped it. And updating the firmware seems to help a bit.
Meaning you can now use tha Camera and take pictures, but when you turn it on, you will get the same error message for like a second. Then the Camera is back to normal.
If its under warranty take it back. And dont tell them it was dropped.
Cheers !
