Question about Canon EOS-20D Digital Camera with 17-85mm Lens

Open Question

Canon 20D When ever I shoot in manual mode my counter does'nt subtract count correctly, if at all. If I start off with 999 shots and take 20 pics, it will still say 999. I put it in auto mode and it starts subtracting like it should. I have taken out my batteries charged them, switched cf cards and it still acts goofy in manual mode.

check your firmware version and update if necessary. Usually you get the "busy" message when your camera is writing to the card and it's possible the card isn't quite right - a format should fix it. Alternatately you might try a different CF card to see if the problem goes away. Good luck!

It sounds like the focus element in your lens is not functioning properly. Does the lens retract completely when you turn off the camera? When you push the button does the camera attempt to focus the image? If you do not see any change in the image when you push the button, and do not hear any sound - then your focus motor is either jammed or malfunctioning. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

SOURCE: I'm having 3 different problems with my Canon Rebel XT

According to Canon, Error code 02 means that "There is a problem with the CF card. Try any of the following: Remove and re-insert the CF card. Format the CF card, use a different CF card."

Are both CF cards the same brand? Sometimes some brands have conflicts with the camera, you might try using two different brands.

It may not be the card, did you try on the third attempt to remove the battery and put it back in? There may be a problem with the contact points where the CF card plugs into the camera, or in the transfer system itself.

SOURCE: Camera won't shoot with lens on Auto Focus

Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.

SOURCE: Canon EOS 20D shutter error

Hello - I figured it out. I had the exact same problem. The shutter failed and it had to be fixed by Canon. Apparently that happens after the shutter fires so many times (like a click-count on a printer). I just got my camera back and it's doing awesome now.

I want to click pics at night but even with its flash on .... pic quality is nt so good ................ is there any night mode function on Canon PowerShot SX130 IS camera ......if yes please tell me...


you have a dial on top of your camera. where you can find 2 types of shots. one is Night scene. and other is Night snap shot. Second one is better.
Note that even a small hand shake will spoil the subject. Use a tripod for night shotting with flash

Rear lcd screen black in shooting mode but works fine in playback


Solved the problem by going to the Canon product support site. It seems that there is no problem at all. The way the camera is designed is the problem. To be able to use the rear display lcd as a view finder, the camera needs to be able to lift the mirror to allow the sensors to pick up the image and display it on the screen. The 20D does not have this abilitiy. Apparently some later models do allow you to raise the mirror. It was this feature on those models that led me to believe that the 20D should do this too.

The remaining picture counter stays at 999


The maximum number of remaining shots that the display can show is 999.
If the memory card has space for more than 999 pictures, the number will stay at 999 till less than 999 remain and it will start counting down from there.

Hi all, I wonder if you can supply some advice regarding a Sigma17-35mm lens I purchased earlier in the year. Basically if I use the automatic or 'P' setting on my Canon EOS 30D camera the image is over...


Try your EOS in AV (aprature value) mode. You should be able to adjust your aperature value in 1/3 or 1/2 steps dependind how you have your Custom Functions set in your camera's menu. Possibly the lens you purchased is for an EOS 35mm. If you use a 35mm lens on your eos there are some calculations you must use. When using a 35mm lens on the EOS 20D, 30D, 40D and 50D bodies, you must first calculate your focal leingth by 1.6 times. With this, your exposure changes as well.

The only EOS Digital SLR bodies that use a 35mm x 24mm CMOS sensor are the 1D and 5D. My wife uses a Tamron 18-200mm f3.5-5.6 lens on her 20D and loves it.

If this makes no difference, you may have a defective lens.

Just purchased a canon A590. on page 84 of user guide, continuous shooting is described. I'm somewhat familiar with SD cards, but Canon implies that I have to use their MSH type SD card to use the...


I don't own an A590 but I've been handling cameras since the Kodak Instamatic days, so I'll try to help you. I checked out the Canon website for the A590. and they don't specifically state the MSH type SD card. The camera can do 1.4 fps or frames per second of continous shooting. But it also identifies a 20 and 30fps which refers to the movie mode. If the manual states a MSH type Sd card, it usually means that the card may be of a faster recording speed to take continous shots. But I think what you might mean continous shots could be the 3 or 5 second burst on the Digital SLR cameras. These modes are usually for sports and very good for Formular 1 racing pictures. The specs of your camera does not have a sports mode or any continous burst. So you will be stuck in the 1.4fps levels. Let me know if this helps.
