    I have had this camera for a while now and it suffers with the sticky shutter problem. I've cleaned the gunk a couple of times, as recommended on various sites but I still can't get through a roll of film without a shutter problem. So does anyone have a link to a guide which shows how to remove the shutter bumper, which has degraded, completely? I can't find one despite extensive Googling and I understand this can be removed without affecting the operation of the camera. I have another 35mm camera, an Olympus, but I want to be able to use my Canon lenses to shoot film as well as digital.

    Anyone able to help please?

    Thanks in advance.

    This is a known problem with old film EOS cameras. Unfortunately, I never met solution to this as well ( but was not looking too hard). Do you really need to waste your time on it though? I bought a near mint EOS 500 off e-bay for 15$ last yearSmile

    The camera was a very cheap eBay purchase (2 plus postage!) but rather than spend my time trying to buy another camera, I'd rather try to save the one I have by removing the bumper. I'm not entirely sure which models are affected by the problem, or I may consider another EOS film body though. I know I'll probably have to partly strip the body to get at the rubber, so it might be a pain to do it.

    Is there a list of bumper problem cameras that is accurate? What can I buy without having this problem?

    Thanks.
