So does anyone have any experience with error 99?
whenever I try to take a photo it sounds a bit funny and only gives error 99.
I can't even do a sensor clean. Shutter stays closed!

Doesn't sound good Peter, if the mirror pops up for sensor cleaning but the shutter doesn't move out of the way, sounds like shutter = dead!!

If I can get hold of a 30, 40 or 50D would be very very cool. I'm going to be mostly inside & taking group photos, so will be needing higher iso.. But if I can't get hold of a 40 D I will gladly take you up on the 30D...
Thank you very much.

HELP!!
Hi guys.
I need someones help I think.
My camera seems to have died today. Absolute great when you are on holiday for 2 weeks in New Zealand, and this weekend we have our family reunion where I have to photograph!!
Does anybody have a Canon body I could borrow till the end of my stay next week.

One option Is If someone in Akl had one I could borrow, my brother is in Auckland and is flying down to meet me on Friday. He lives in Mt Eden, and works near Birkenhead. I could give it back next Friday at the BBQ.
Please contact me.
Unfortunately I don't have constant internet.
Tonight (Wednesday) you can call me on 022 0ne 007808
or tomorrow send me a text on 0049 0ne 634219505

It would be greatly appreciated!



Sounds like Mark and Duncan have it covered, but I have a spare 30D.

I have a 20D down in Wellington you're welcome to, you can have it as long as you're here. Or a D700, but if you haven't driven one before it'd be a bit of a pita. Will PM you my cell just in case.

Peter, sounds highly unlikely it's the cause, but it's worth a shot. Although Err99 is the 'catch-all' error code for faults Canon don't assign specifically, it's almost always due to dirty lens contacts between the lens and body. Give them a rub down with something none greasy, a pencil eraser is perfect obviously keeping the rubber shavings outside the body.

From the sounds of the symptoms it's unlikely to work, but honestly give it a go, nothing to lose.


Cheers, Dave.

it 's quicker to test for dirty lens contacts by taking off the lens...

Yes, I get the same error regardless of if the lens is on or off.
Like I said, I tried selecting Sensor clean, and the mirror flips up, then straight down again and just gives the error 99 message. Makes me think the shutter is jammed.
Maybe I should spray a wad of CRC in there ;)
I am enjoying the nice warm weather here. Just arrived in Balmy Palmie this morning.
