You need the wireless adapter for this, you cannot do this with the camera.

On the 5D error code 30 appears to be shutter related and general advice is to get a professional repair or send it back to Canon.

Test using a different battery. When it does like that it is often the battery shorted inside. If the problem occurs using a known-good battery, then the contacts in the battery slots or the circuits behind the contacts have a short. When there is no battery the shorted wires or contacts are not "hot" and the short does not prevent the camera from starting.
If the problem is not the battery the camera must be disassembled. In that case disassembling will start from the screws on right hand side (watching from front), then screws in front, then left and back. Unless you have done similar repairs before it is advisable not attempting to disassemble the camera. The camera is very easy to damage. There are springs, wires and tricky parts near to shutter button on top, selector wheel and strap holder. If problem is camera and not the battery you can get a good quote on repair here:Repair.

SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the metal contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.
After unprotecting the card, insert it into the camera and format it.

Yes, I'm sure that camera will be fine, the 20D some years back was considered OK for wedding images
BUT its more about the quality of the LENS you are using and will it wok in all situations
I used to do a lot of Film work for weddings and used various canon camera bodies, but the lenses where the important factor for speed, composition - I also used a top quality flash unit, that could be used OFF camera. I used a 28mm lens, 50mm 1.8 lens - very high quality and cheaply available, 135mm portrait lens, and various zoom lens
I also always used a tripod, so i could compose the groups and then leave, the camera and go and work with setting up the group, and using a remote take the picture. I also used a flash frame on the flash, so I could turn the camera between portrait and landscape with out worrying about the flash gun

This will require disassembling the camera to remove the top cover and viewfinder mechanism to re-seat the diopter lens and can be done fairly inexpensively. However, it's not really a user serviceable problem and should be done by a qualified service technician.

Have you checked the lens to see if auto focus is turned on? Sometimes the switch can get accidentally turned to the manual focus position.

First of all, un-signed questions will attract few or no help so next time do it right.

Secondly, your camera needs service. You can't do much on your own so send it off to a service provider.

As far as I know, you should use L series Lens to fit Full Frame Canon Camera (5D & 1D).

That would be no adapter, but please correct me if I'm wrong.

I don't think that is an easy task on such a forum as this. This is a talent not a task that you can instill in such a limited media

My suggestion is to visit your local library and acquire some books on Architecture and photography. Taking a look at books that show Spanish Architecture of the Mooors or Iranian arch. will inspire you to become creative .

Even looking at Gaudi's buildings like Guell Park in Barcelona as well as The Familia Segrada will give you some guidance as to what is artistic as well as heritage. You can then start looking at buildings in your own envionment differently to what is obvious.

I can help you fix the BUSY Error or Error 99 of your Canon EOS Rebel XS.

Installation of this Canon EOS Rebel XS firmware version 1.06 update will solve these problems:
  1. Some cameras may exhibit a phenomenon in which the LCD monitor does not display, the shutter does not release, and the BUSY indication remains lit in the viewfinder.
  2. The message, "Err 99 Shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to<OFF> and <ON> again or re-install the battery", appears on the camera's LCD monitor, and after the above operation is carried out,the LCD monitor displays in a language that is different from the actual language setting.
See the firmware instructions and download the firmware upgrade by following these Fixya Tips :

I do not know if this is going to be of any help. I was actually reading about this error code 99 in canon, and bumped into a forum, where people had share their experiences. You can give it a try. But if your camera is still under warranty, it is best to ring technical support.

"ERR 99" is a general error code displayed by the camera when the camera knows that something is not working properly, but not exactly what.

This error is typically associated with lens communication or shutter mechanism issues. To isolate the cause of the issue, we suggest that
you do the following:

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.

If the "ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.

If you see the "ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the
camera should be serviced.

Hope this helps !!!

Thank you for your sunshine. This is not the kind of query with which Fixya can really assist you, I'm afraid - have you thought of consulting the many on-line forums which exist to offer advice on exposure and software. Good luck.

Canon EOS... | Answered on Dec 01, 2018

Error code 99 indicates detection of a system malfunction. Try switching on the camera and while it is still switched on remove the battery. Leave it for about 30 secs then re-insert the battery once powered up switch the camera off wait 30 secs then switch it on again. This action sometimes will remedy this problem but failing that it may need a visit to the repair shop.

Canon EOS-20D... | Answered on Oct 20, 2018

If it's not too cold or too hot, then probably you camera needs to be repaired.

The manual may have some added info in the troubleshoting section, just take a look.

You can find the manual for download and other info on the link bellow (and be sure you have updated the firmware):
