Question about Canon Digital Rebel / EOS-300D Digital Camera with EF-S 18-55mm Lens

1 Answer

A black shadow half way down the frame

I took photographs with my camera today, and the camera seemed to be shooting properly, but when I looked back on my photos there is a black shadow half way across each of the photographs I took today. Yesterday my camera was working fine and the results were fine, it seems to have happened today. It's not the lens, as i changed the lens when I got home to see if that was the problem. Can anyone help me?

2 cent plastic pin holding AF sub-mirror broke. See above. Unfortunately Canon charges a bit above 2 cents to fix it. Saving pennies on plastic instead of metal will make Canon a boatload of money because they will all break eventually. Of course if everyone changes manufacturer on their next camera this might backfire.

What is forced flash


"Forced flash" is when you force the flash to fire even if the camera thinks there's enough light to photograph without it.

As an example, consider taking a photo of a person outdoors with the sun coming from one side and casting half the face in shadow. By forcing the flash to fire, you can illuminate the shadowed portion without affecting the background.

Anything falling out of the inside of your camera is not a good sign, since it is new, I would have it exchanged as soon as possible for being defective.

Half the picture is black


Hi,
The black photo problem means the lens sensor is spoiled due to over exposure to heat. Its better to give it to cannon service centre. If your camera is under warranty period its well and good they will replcae the lense sensor for free of cost.

Thank you

It sounds like that's the first black frame problem that is a fairly common defect with the cameras, so much so that Sony is repairing it for free, for more info, see:

Black Image


Are you taking these images with a flash? If so it is possible that you are shooting with a shutter speed which is too fast for flash photography. Anything faster then 1/125th (i think) on that camera with flash will produce the result you are describing. If this is without flash then the problem lies elsewhere. New flashes from canon have the capability to work with any shutter speed, but classic flashes only work properly at lower speeds. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
