my camera went home with one of the pro photographers from the studio last night.  she was going to try to see if she could figure out what was wrong.  i thought, “it probably won’t replicate the problem for her.” but sad news, it did.

my point and shoot died a couple months ago.  i’ve been borrowing my boss’s.  now my big canon eos 20d!? come on!

now i’m left with this little loaner….

upon hearing the sad news of my other camera

and this camera just isn’t going to cut it over at dogdailyphoto.  i will have to some how come up with money to get it fixed.  replacing it is not an option. (i got it used from a friend so it’s not under warranty anymore)  they’re very expensive.  replacing it…$1100.  i would have to find a used one.

hope hope hope it can be fixed!

I think E.g. would be teary if her camera walked off the job — let alone several in a row! I hope things are fixed economically and soon!

Bummer that it’s not under warranty. You probably saw this already, but if not, I found this posting with some suggestions from Canon on troubleshooting “Error 99” (at

Thank you for contacting Canon product support. I’m sorry to hear that
your EOS 10D is displaying an “ERR 99” message.

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.

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.

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.

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.
