    Well, not knowing any better, yes, I'm complaining... I set up the camera on a stand before the band goes on stage, and can't get the full set recorded... there is no one available to resume, so I "assumed" that the camera would continue until the card is full or the battery is dead, as it does when I shoot hand-held. I often fill a 4 Gb or 8 Gb card with video hand-held, one file. I edit it at home on the 'puter.

    Yes, the battery gets hot. But, I can fill an 8 Gb card (62 min video) on one battery. I have 3 batteries, and rotate them. I don't ALWAYS shoot non-stop, but for some sessions I like to capture the "stuff" that goes on between songs... I'm filming music concerts & conventions (bluegrass & Hawaiian steel guitar)... my Canon does a LOT better quality than my Sony digital tape recorder!!

    OK -- didn't know there were different classes of cards... Doing some digging, I see that I'm using Class 2 cards. Will have to get a 6+ and check it out. Thanks! dk

Wow!...you get 35 min. of uninterrupted movie on a point-and-shoot camera before it shuts off and you're complaining? No Hollywood director would ever shoot that much without stopping....even Alfred Hitchcock never went that far! After your camera shuts down, can you start it up again and resume another movie session?

    So you're saying that when you hand hold the camera, you normally shoot for more than 35 minutes at a time? That takes real dedication. Doesn't the battery get too hot?

  • Ty Price Jul 12, 2010

    Well, I envy you and your camera. It seems able to do much better than mine at extended videos. One suggestion I might make....if you use a class 6 or better card, the videos may go on longer. Good luck to you.

I am facing frequent tearing of fuser film code 00007.The engg. advised n converted 4570 canon to reduced speed approx 30-35 copies per min. but the problem persists after every 18000-20000 copies .Please...


Hello,
if the fixing film keeps to wear down rapidly, the problem can be few things.

  1. Maybe the pressure between fixing film and silicon roller isn't good ( replace silicon roller, silicon roller bushings, and execute the nip check in service mode )
  2. Maybe that the fixing film isnt Canon and therefore lower quality.
  3. Maybe the fixing heater ( beneath the fixing roller ) has "nose" or place where the fixing film gets stucked or wraped. Change the fixing film assembly ( Canons film + heather in assy )
  4. TO BE SURE, THE BEST SOLUTION IS TO CHANGE THE WHOLE FIXING ASSY with new one.
Hope that helps!

Film won't load on Minolta 400si Maxxum Camera


My daughter took the camera to her photography teacher he was able to load the film by wrapping more film around the roller. It's not as easy to load as my Canon. I thought we had put plenty of film around it already. Oh well, it's working anyway.

Film wound on wrong side of camera


It sounds like you have a jam.  When you have finished taking shots and have used all the film, you must press the film-rewind button on the underside of the camera; this does not rewind the film, but allows you to commence the next step.  Once you have done this, flip up the rewind-crank on the top left hand side of the camera. It is situated on top of the film speed dial. turn this clockwise until all the film is back in its cartridge.  You should now be able to open the back of the camera.
I hope you have fun with your t50!

Film Loading Error


This also happens to Yashicas often. (though instead of stirpping the film, it will rewind it back into the roll. Something's wrong with either the firmware or the drive system. It'll need to be taken to a camera repair shop, or you'll have to send it back to Canon for warranty service, if it's still within warranty.

Film advance


In most film cameras, a battery is not necessary to manual advance film using the lever. Your Canon AV-1 is no exception. I have owned two cameras from the same group, the AE-1 and the Canon A-1. Neither required a battery for manual film advance.

Make sure the ring around the shutter release button is set to "A", otherwise the shutter won't release and the film lever won't work correctly. If the ring shows an "L", the shutter release is locked.

Here's a graphic of the batteries that can be used in your AV-1:
