Take it to a camera repair shop to get a quote (the camera should be able to be sent to a repairer through any camera retailer).

When you have the quote - decide whether it is more economical to repair or replace.

Good luck.

Best canon film lens for canon digitial great pic


A Canon EF mount film lens will work on a digital camera. What you need to know is what you want to capture, subject, distance, field of view you are wanting to provide. Without that knowledge nobody can provide you an appropriate answer.

I have a canon powershot SD850 IS...it was dropped accidentaly and its not starting n says lens error restart camera...how to fix it??


Hi,

Very difficult to repair at home due to having to remove most of the camera insides to get to the lens mechanism. The lens then needs to be opened in a dust free enviroment and repaired. Your best bet is a local independent repair shop.

I have a Canon Power shot S3 . Can I use a Sigma AF-Mf zoom lens 100-300mm to it. If Yes, what type adapter to use.? I also have a 35-80mm canon lens. can this be used ? Thanks.


Your camera is a fixed lens compact model. You cannot fit other lenses to it unless they are specifically designed as supplementary lenses which screw onto the existing lens filter thread.

There are no adaptors you can safely use either, the only ones would be lens reversing rings which are used to mount lenses backwards for ultra close-up macrophotography, but the weight of the lenses you propose on the end of your existing lens would break your camera.

If you wish to use interchangeable lenses then you need to obtain an SLR or an interchangeable lens rangefinder camera.

The lens is cloudy


Well the lens gets mositure even when it's in the bag, it's because of the humidity.
what I usually do when it happens is I put it in a hot dry area, like in the sun or somthing like that so the water can vaporize.

Will not autofocus


Hey shutterbug72,
According to the manufacturer the first thing you should try is cleaning the lens contacts with an eraser. If that doesn't work you could try removing the battery and reinserting it to reset the camera. It seems to me that if there was a compatibility issue going on you should have seen that from the start. As far as what lens you should buy both Tamron and Canon make very good lenses, but with Canon lenses you shouldn't ever have compatibility issues. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Error 99


i had the same problem and i found this guide online fixed my problem

1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If it does, then the camera should be
serviced. If it does not, then please proceed to the next set of steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
Does the “ERR 99′ message appear? If so, then the CF card is the most
likely source of the issue. Try using a different card.
If the message does not appear, please complete the following steps:
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the lens contacts by gently rubbing them with a pencil eraser
or soft cloth. Be careful that you do not let any debris fall into the
camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.
