Question about Canon EOS 20Da Digital Camera
Until a couple of days ago I have had no problem with my 20D. I am using a new 28-200 Canon Lens for over a month again no problem. A couple of days ago it started giving an err99 message. I cleaned the contacts between the lens no fix. Now whenever I put the battery in the camera the shutter continues to go off regardless if the camera is switched on or not. Occasionally it shows a "busy" message but does nothing. I am travelling in Peru and very annoyed because unable to take pictures! All suggestions gratefully received there are no camera shops where I am. I thought buying a new battery might help?
Its not the battery
its the exposure of the shutter speed of the camera
it might need to be set manually. set it to 2.8 or 4.5 speed
i had the same problem when i bought my sigma 20mm-80mm lens.
the lens wasnt talking to the camera properly, it didnt know what it was aying about exposure speed rate.
put the camera in AV mode and set the speed rate.
the lens might be compatible with your camera even though it is a canon, or it could be defective
return and replace
