Question about Canon EOS Rebel G 35mm SLR Camera

Rebal G making weird sound

I have a Canon EOS Rebel G that I purchased about 10 years ago for about $400. I used it about a year and it started making a weird sound and basically locked on me. I bought new batteries and that didn't help. The warranty had already run out and when I called customer service they told me it would be about $80 just for them to take a peek at it and then the cost of the repair. I didn't and still don't have that kind of money laying around. (since then I have had 3 kids and am a stay at home mom. I was taking a photography class at the time thinking I might get into the photography business but when I saw how expensive the equipment is I said forget that :) There was another poster in May of 2008 who had a similar problem but was advised to take it and have it looked at. Sounds like it might be an issue with this type of camera? Is my camera worth anything if I tried to post it on ebay? I noticed they are selling for around $100 in working condition on Amazon. Do you have any idea what the lens itself might be worth? I am still camera ignorant and have no idea what kind it is. This is what it says it has a 0 with a slash thru it and then a 58 and then Sigma Zoom 28-105 mm 1:4-5.6 UC II It has manual and auto focus. I just wondered if I could sell it for parts or it might be fixable but I doubt someone would want to pay almost $100 to fix it if it's only worth that.

Go for it! People sell thousands of broken items for parts all the time on eBay.

As an experienced eBay seller, I have sold many things that I am unsure of. Yes, you can sell it for parts, but offer it at a low starting bid with no reserve and just get what you can get. Even if it is worth only ten dollars, it's fun to sell on eBay and part of the fun is to offer and get good deals! Your description should explain the camera's history and that the lens is still good. Used and in working order items, usually sell for 1/4 their original price. Take a couple good photos to post with your listing. As a matter of fact you have already excellently written part of your description when you described the lens..."It has a 0 with a slash thru it and then a 58 and then Sigma Zoom 28-105 mm 1:4-5.6 UC II. It has manual and auto focus." Remember it's good to purge and it's not worth anything sitting in your drawer.

Good luck!

How do you get to the video mode on the canon 400d rebel xti

There is no video mode on the Xti. The first Canon Digital Rebel to be equipped with video was the T1i, which came out almost 5 years later (2 years ago).

Can I set a Canon EOS Rebel XTi up so that the picture I am taking shows up in the LCD?

No. You require a feature called live view and your camera doesn't have it. It's technically difficult to achieve on dSLR's and it's only a couple of years ago that it started to appear on some models.

Digital rebel battery drain with flash only

I would suspect the batteries

Ive got an eos Rebel think its just over 4 years old
for the last year its been used every weekend for several hours 300+ pics per weekend between 2 nights I found that recently where one battery would last a night the battery was running out midway through & also taking longer to charge afterwards

2 after market replacements cost me about £10 and things are back to normal

5 years is a pretty good lifespan for a battery so its probably just getting old

Canon Rebel focus

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...

Pictures are not turning out REBEL Ti

If your film's ISO speed is relatively high (say, above ISO 200 or 400) and you're shooting in bright light, your camera's shutter/aperture won't be able to compensate for the light. In that case, using a slower film is the solution.
