DSLR packed in Lowpro Bag Fell off the Baggage She
« on: April 30, 2006, 03:56:50 PM »

Today, I was returning from an outdoor shoot and I was really very tired and kept my camera bag in the baggage shelf of the bus I was travelling. When it took some sharp turn, my bag fell off. I checked its LCD and it worked fine. When I arrived home, I found out that viewfinder looked out of focus and images taken were as sharp as before. I contacted a professional prographer friend, he advised me to give a light bang/ slap in the opposite direction. Trust me it worked and the viewfinder focus is back. But when I went out tom shoot, after about 80 images, its stopped working and flashed Error 99. I switched it off and then on and then off, it showed me the same error each time. At last, it just won't switch off, then I took out it battery and inserted again and it worked and did some more shots.

Is the trouble still hiding in my camera?

Your mirror may become loose and shifted a little.  Error 99 can mean the mirror is hitting something inside the mirror box.  Send it in for repair.

I remember having error99 on my fathers elan7 due to a newer lens (sigma 14mm f/2.8) being put on necessitating rechipping, and then on 20D beacuse he needed a new software update vs. the lens (50mm macro). On a DSLR it's easily fixed if thats the cause. Good luck.

Does anybiody know if a viewfiner view can be unfocues while the sensor records a focues image (dioptrical adjusting not being the cause)?

I'm not gentle on my cameras, never heard about your cure, but who knows, worked for you.
