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

2 Answers

Loss of Focus

I have a Canon 300D. Most of the photos that I take outside are as I would expect. However, one of the reasons I bought this particular camera was the 'sport' setting where I can take 3 shots in rapid succession. I do this in an indoor riding school and the subjects are horses in motion.
My results are not good. The speed of the animal means that I get a trail in the photo of the legs/tail etc.
usually the camera activates it's automatic flash and I am wondering if this reduces the shutter speed - hence the problem. If this is so; how may a counteract it?
All/any answers greatly appreciated.

    I can hold the flash down and I think that will improve things but I wondered if there was another solution?

    the manual suggests that this particular aspect requires a custom configuration(which means you'll need to play with it each time)..figures..

100-400mm canon lens can't adjust focus ring on outside it is locked and will not budge


Assuming you are switched to MF manual focus and not AF then It's a recognised problem with that particular lens, in that some bearings under the focus ring become dislodged. It is not fixable by DIY means and will have to be returned to Canon or a repairer.

LCD 3/4 Blackout canon 300D


This is fairly common on the 300D - the submirror ( underneath the main mirro ) has a plastic pin that breaks - the camera has to be disassembled to replace. Expect to pay an independent repair shop about $105 or from Canon $180.

I would only suggest you might clean the metal contacts on the inside rim of the lens....just be very careful what you use....a pencil eraser is good but make sure you clean away any shavings that might get into the camera...

My 300D wont lock on a point in its AF setting


If you are unable to focus in broad daylight and it just hunts through the whole focus range without locking, then it sounds like a problem with sub-mirror pin (also called the second mirror pin). My 300D just had this problem and I had to send to service to get fixed. I sent to http://www.keh.com/ as they were at least $50 cheaper than going straight to Canon. Just got it backed and it works like a charm again.

Focus problem


Suggestion: 1. camera probably has a sharpness setting. 2. avoid wide open, F/5.6 is the sweet spot on most lenses.
