I own the Canon Pro 1000. Short answer: Don't buy the printer for this scenario. Use a printing service instead. The Canon is designed to be frequently used. It uses pigmented ink which don't take long periods of not being used too well. It even shakes the cartridges before each print run. If the printer is kept plugged in, it will clean itself from time to ...

Many of Canon's newer entry level cameras, including the EOS 2000D, lack a center hotshoe contact so they are not very flexible when it comes to a choice of flash. All Canon "EX" flash units will be compatible because Canon uses ETTL information from the other contact pins to trigger the flash. Some third party ETTL flash units will be compatible, ...

The 2000D, along with a few other recent low end offerings from Canon, do not have an ISO compliant hot shoe with a trigger pin in the center to tell a non-TTL flash to "fire." Most manual flashes are not capable of receiving a "fire" signal from a camera that does not have a center pin. The only workaround for using manual flash with ...

The memory card door has a tab that engages a very small micro-switch on the camera body when closed. If you can find a way to activate this switch, your camera will operate without the door closed or even if it is missing. Be careful not to damage the delicate micro-switch.

Use a printer with the printing heads in the ink cartridges, rather than permanent head in the printer. If/when the heads get clogged, you're only a new cartridge away from clean, new print heads. If you absolutely require the use of a pro-grade printer like the Canon imagePrograf Pro-1000 or an Epson SureColor SC-P900 for only a limited amount of printing, ...

I think the general guideline for ink is two years from the manufacture date. For Prograf, that may be less. There may even be an expiry date printed for some grades/brands of ink cartridges I have found the best thing to do is to print test pages and alignment pages every so often. If you are really going to be away from a printer for that long, and you are ...

It sounds like the film is not automatically advancing as it should. If you are using rechargeable NiCad or Li-Ion batteries, they output a lower nominal voltage than the recommended alkaline batteries. This may or may not be the source of the failure to advance the film. When you take out and replace the batteries, does the film advance when you put the ...

After doing some research (this thread being a particularly useful one: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/4392551), it seems that certain Sigma lenses are incompatible with newer Canon models like the M50. You'll either have to wait for a firmware update (if they offer one), sell the lens, or wait until you get a new body (check to make sure it works ...

It sounds like you have a bad connection, an incompatible connection or a bad lens. Clean the contacts on the lens and camera and coupler. If it persists, try the lens on an EOS EF mount body. If it still happens you have a bad lens. I suspect that it's the coupler.

The first thing to check is whether or not your 2000D/T7 is actually missing the sync connector (the big one in the middle of the hotshoe "square") or not. There are reports that some newer copies of the T7 have had their sync contact reinstated. If that's the case, then you don't have to worry: all the Canon-compatible flashes should work. If, ...

Each one of those shots will process differently, even on the same camera. Do a test with the same subject under the same lighting to see how far off your camera may or may not be. Then adjust your settings. All cameras will be slightly different.

Really old thread. Anyway, it seems people confuse 'stacking' and 'bracketing'. Bracketing is used to capture a number of pictures of a scene while varying a parameter, exposure, focus, what have you. Stacking is a post processing technique for combining bracketed photos to create HDR or increased depth of field, for instance. For the original posters ...
