Dust on the image sensor of a digital camera will show up as a dark spot in the same location of every frame. The sensor is a delicate piece of equipment and you need to clean it to solve your problem .... I dont think poor battery can cause a smudge on the film .....

I don't think that a low battery power can cause a smudge in the film.

After all the battery compartment is not where the film is right ?

Look closer to where the film is rolled, that is where your problem is originating.

Dear Sir/madam,

Your thought is wrong. This is the shutter problem and also

) The shutter has not opened (or a similar fault)
2) The film has not wound on
3) You have mixed up exposed and non exposed films (This is more common than you would expect)


try this...

Put fresh batteries into the camera. (I fix more problems with this than any other thing, even with the "I just did that last week" statement).

Open the back of the camera and make sure there is no film in it.

Try to "take" a picture with the back open, I am not sure if you can do this with this model, but its worth a try. If it will function, then place the f stop to its most open position and cycle the camera a few times at varying shutter speeds to see if I can detect any variation while I am looking through the lens.

Close the back and with no film in the camera, try to take a few pictures and insure what the frame counter does.

It appears the only thing in common between the two cameras is some blank film and the operator. I would really look for an operator error

thanks
good luck

Sometimes battery will conflict the problem of your camera. is this the first time that youve experience this? try to change the battery and the film and be sure that film is the same as you use before to see the real problem.

How long has this camera been out? I'm shopping


HI,
The Canon Rebel T2i was announced on Feb 08, 2010 and Canon just started shipping the DSLR. Your salesperson was thus correct.
The DSLR is also known as EOS 550D. It differs from the previously model by:
  • Higher resolution 18MP CMOS with gapless micro lenses
  • ISO 6400 no longer in 'expanded' range (12,800 max remains the same)
  • Redesigned buttons and new movie/live view button
  • Customizable auto ISO ranges
  • Improved 63 zone metering (iFCL)
  • 3:2 format screen with more pixels
  • Improved movie functionality
  • Slightly higher burst shooting rate (though buffer holds fewer shots)
  • HDMI control (CEC)
  • SDHX Compatible

    Canon EOS 500n 35mm Film Camera, best cheap lens


    In short, you won't. All Canon Digital SLR's use the same lens mounting system as your EOS 500n and new lenses are very expensive especially for those who have purchased full-frame models.

    As a result, demand for the lenses which fit your camera is very high and so prices are high as well: it's just basic supply and demand economics. There were cheaply made kit lenses available with your camera when it was new, but like most kit lenses they weren't built to last, so most of the older ones are either non-functional or have been scrapped after owners upgraded. All that leaves are the higher quality, well built, lenses from the time your camera was made which are far cheaper than new lenses but still comparatively expensive.

    If you want cheap lenses then you've picked the wrong system. Buy an older FD mount Canon SLR if you want to stay with Canon; you'll then find that lenses are so cheap that they're often offered for free on your local FreeCycle group. The same source is where I've got all of my manual focus (and some AF) SLR equipment over the last few years.

    Our canon eos 1000D has a problem, the seccreen is blank alll tha time and it only just happened! plz help (it hasnt been dropped)


    Apart from the blank screen, is everything else okay? I mean, does the shutter works when you shoot? And can you see the display when you look through the view finder? If it's just the dispaly, there is a button just on top left corner of the lcd screen named display, press it once or twice and see if it's coming. It would be helpful to determine what could be the problem if you explain your situation in detail.

    Dear sir, pictures taken by it is unclear (canon EOS 500 Film cam


    Hi Sanju,

    I take it that you are using the same lens on the 500 all the time?? If that is the case then one of the interior lenses on the zoom lens are damaged. This, unfortunately, is not something you should tackle yourself. It is possible to open the lens up but you would probably not be able to buy the particular lens directly from the manufacturer and the risk of getting dust or moisture inside the zoom lens is quite high. Personally I'd take it along to a decent camera shop and ask them to give you a repair estimate so you can decide if it's worth fixing or as cheap to just replace it. Lens prices have come down a bit in the last few years so it's possible the repair and replacement would cost the same..

    Hope this helps!!

    Strange, intermittent problems with the EOS Digital Rebels can be caused by a defective shutter release switch. We charge about $85 to replace it.
