Yes!! Words you never want to hear but my backpack sling wasnt closed when I threw it over my shouder and out came my camera with lens on it. So after that I have had problms with it focusing or it will continue to say busy. I took it o a shop around town the guy eyed the camera and lens said they were perfect nothing wrong with them so as Im taking some photos today it did it again and it wants to wait like a minute before taking another picture cuz its BUSY. Question has anyone had this problem? Is it the lens or is it the camera? I use a Rebel xsi. Any help greatly appreciated.

Take it to Canon and get a quote, only their technicians can tell what's wrong.

borrow another lens and see if it gets busy w/ that one. then you will know - sounds like the lens to me.


If you see me with a wrench - call 911. 5d3, T3i, 17-55 2.8, 50 1.8, 70-200 2.8 L II, 24-105 f4. YN 565, Precision Lupe attached to hacked extended eyecup (no sticky frame) - old enough to have owned an original F-1

I thought that the only time the busy message popped up was when writing to the CF card. Also, is the busy happening on bursts or on single shots.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

Wouldn't it be nice if it was a rubber bounce back case whenever it is dropped ??

I had an XTi that suffered more than that without stopping functioning. Have you taken the lens off and put it back on? Same with battery.
I know, it sounds crazy, but a complete turn off, remove battery, remove lens, then reinstall battery. Turn camera on, check settings. Turn it off again, lock lens into place, then turn it on again and try shooting some pix. If none of that works, it is Canon's turn.

Are you using the flash when taking pictures? Sometimes the flash does weird things to the battery and needs time to recharge before being able to flash again. Try closing the flash and taking ambience only images and see if the issue is solved or still persists.

If its still under the warranty, I would send it into Canon without telling them you dropped it and see what they say. I know it's wrong but what the hell.... Hehe

Some of this behavior may be inconsequential to the drop. First, I think your focus issue might be due to the lens. If it took an impact with the drop, the lens may have been damaged, especially if the lens changes length with focus.

Second, "busy" happens for a couple of reasons, burst mode: waiting for the buffer to clear, this is even worse when while using flash; and, with longer exposures and noise reduction on. Your "busy" might just be due to the photo you were taking at the time.

Before you send it off, or give up on it take some photos in good light and see if this behavior stops.
