    Hello everybody. got my camera out this morning all ready to shoot only to discover that on my first shot my shutter got stuck halfway closed. I brought it into blacks and they said it may just need cleaning... i would have brought it the henrys but they were closed when i got to it. Im currently in school for photography and a camera is kinda important (just a little).

    So mostly does anyone here know something i could try before getting it sent off to canon for cleaning/repair? 3 months past warrantee:grumpy:

    Any help would be great.

    It is a Canon XS or 1000D

    Camera shutters are pretty delicate mechanisms. Unless you know what you are doing, let a qualified shop address the problem.

    However, it sounds like you need a new shutter, about $250.
