HI! Got a question; hope you guys can help...
My Canon EOS30 has been acting up for a while now.
I use it with a Canon EF Ultrasonic Lense 28-200mm with a BP-300 battery pack. Occasionally, I will also use the 420EX Speedlight.
Here's the problem - sometimes (i.e. I couldn't repeat it when I went to the Canon tech center) when I'm about to take a shot, the camera just goes dead and displays the low batt signal.
I hear half of the "full" camera click when this happens (the click in the click clack), but (from looking at the frame counter and the subsequent developed film) the film actually does not advance and neither is that frame exposed. I can only assume tthe mirror moves but the shutter doesn't actually open.
I have to physically "reset" the system by turning it off and switching it back on. Btw, when I do this, I hear the clack in the camera click.
Any ideas on why this is so?? It has started to happen more frequently now, to the point it's frustrating.
I brough it to the Canon service centerm but they couldn't figure out anything wrong with it.
Any ideas at all on this problem???
