Hi all, I'm having an issue with my Canon 50D, I keep getting a message saying "Err 30 shooting is not possible. Turn the power switch to off........." I've looked into it, and found its a pretty common shutter error. But I'm not sure what to do now. I've been all over the web reading forums, and watching videos. Some people say I can be fixed by cleaning the sensor (didn't work), or hitting it, or even pouring Isopropyl into the shutter button! And to send it into canon is going to cost more...
I could use some advice with camera equipment for a three-week trip (SF, California coast, Death Valley, Las Vegas). I have a 50D (primary camera for the last 7 years) and a 7D (got it less than 3 years ago, but haven’t been able to spend enough time with it….). I find that I primarily shoot landscapes, architecture, candids of family (also in low-light situations), street/city scenes. I’m considering bringing one camera only (the 50D since I’m most comfortable with that and it’s lighter)....
Hi, my 5-year+ old 50D has recently been getting Err 30 quite often. It has only about 51,000 shutter counts, just half of its life expectancy. It goes away if I turn the camera off, wait a bit, and turn it back on. But this is rather concerning. I mostly shoot in high speed continuous, AI Servo mode. Any suggestions as to what I should do? --Howardcameras: 5DII, 50D, D60, Rebel 2000 (film)lenses: 17-40 f/4 USM L, 24-105 f/4 USM L, 100-400 f/4.5-5.6 IS USM L, 24 f/3.5 TSE L, 35 f/2, 50 f/1.4...
I have micro 4/3 body with m. zuiko 14-42mm II r and i am thinking of expanding my gear with oly 45mm and 17mm f1.8 so i checked some site reviews and some user reviews. Also i was bored and i decided to compare my 14-42 to canon's 17-55mm f2.8 and to my surprise my lens had slightly less distortion, a lot less vignetting and in terms of resolution according to photozone my oly is on par and actually better in some cases. The only thing that the canon lens did better was control of CA. I find...
As posted in a previous thread I've had focusing issues with a new 70D. At least some of the issues are related to a problem with my 100-400 L as I can produce similar results with the lens and my 50D. I'm not convinced at this point all of the issues are limited to the lens. I've thought about sending the camera and kit lens in to Canon for a check over and calibration but when I called and asked for an estimate of the cost they refused to give me even a wide ball park. I know there are a...
So, i'm on my second copy of the 70D, the first was exchanged due to what seemed like to me to be very erratic focusing. I would estimate that only about 10% to 15% of the pictures were focused anywhere near what was focused on. The second copy is better but still not what I would expect and I need to decide fairly quickly if I want to return/exchange it. Before you start admonishing me on technique let's layout some info. I've been using a xTi and a 50D for a number of years now with the...
