Question about Canon Digital Cameras

1 Answer

I'm looking at buying a Canon EOS 400d and wonder if anyont can confirm whether my lens from old Canon EOS 620 film camera body will be compatible. (Unfortunately lens in storage at moment so I can't quote model numbers, but one is Canon 50 mm ultrasonic lens and other is a (I think) sigma 28 to 200 mm)

The canon lens should work fine. Some of the Sigma lenses have to be converted by Sigma to work with digital. The last one I sent to them they only charged me $10 for return shipping. You can find their address online.

I just purchased a Canon EOS Rebel K2 35 MM film camera body. What lenses are compatible with this camera?


The Rebel K2 has the Canon EF mount. It is compatible with any EF lenses except the EF-S series. It will also work with third-party lenses that are compatible with the Canon EF series.

You can see the entire current line of Canon lenses (including the EF-S series) at

Can CF card pin be repaired on a Canon Rebel? Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera with 17-85mm Lens


I assume you mean one of the pins inside the camera body itself? This is quite a common problem and I believe it will have to be dealt with by a Canon Repair Centre. However it is not the end of the camera and is worth having done although I cannot say what the are charging at this time.

I have a Cosina AF Macro 100mm lens that I used on


you should be able to use that lens with it. As long as it attaches to the SLR body ok. The thing to be aware of is with better technology in the newer camera you may have AF issues with that particular lens.

Try cleaning the contacts on the camera body and the lens where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol.

Cannon lenses


All canon EF lenses (and compatibles e.g. Sigma EX) can be used with both analog and digital  EOS-bodies. Depending on the sensor size (usually smaller than a 35 mm negative) a crop-factor due to the smaller field of view must be considered.  Example: Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens used on a digital EOS (40D, crop factor 1.6) equals a 80mm lens (50mm x 1.6) compared to analog cameras using 35mm film. Some digital EOS-models can also use EF-S lens-series.

Contact Canon - some makes of lens which are not Canon are not electronically compatible for various reasons, and can actually damage the camera. So, get using the phone and check if it is compatible before doing anything else - but personally, I would not use the lens until I find out

I made the mistake of putting ahotshoe protector from my old camera on the new EOS 400D. It stopped the flash from popping up. I took it off and things now work.

Canon error code 99


Your camera performs a quick 'integrity' check before each shot and goes into error 99 mode if the lens in incompatible or has a diaphragm problem. ( it will also display e99 if the shutter or flash unit is not ok but this does not apply here ). This is how you can check whether the diaphragm mechanism is ok : attach lens to your old camera and set camera to AV and set F stop to 16 . open back and release shutter and look through the back to see if your lens is closing to F 16. If it is closing fine then the lens is ok but is not compatible with your D400.
