I have an old canon 10s film camera, that I let my daughter use for her high school photography class. Well the shutter is starting to stick and she has 2 more months of class left. Any quick fix suggestions I was thinking maybe a drop of oil on the shutter.........

sometimes it is simply debris in the camera body stopping the shutter from functioning properly. Lens off, air can in, see if anything is coming out of there. After that, I would with lens off look into the camera and do some eyeballing on the equipment for anything not aligned or where it is supposed to be. Try a few settings on bulb, seecond, half second. and work up the shutter to see if everything is still responding as it should.

Could be something simple like dirt, could be the controls of the shutter in the camera. Hope for the dirt, otherwise your looking at some basic repairs that are going to have to be done to the camera through your local repair shop.

Best of luck

Whatever you do, DON'T oil the shutter. You'll only gum it up. You need dry lubricants for camera parts. If you can find a good, non-chain, camera store near you they just might have someone there that can make simple repairs without sending the thing out. Jason's suggestion about canned air is a good one, just be careful that propellant doesn't hit the focusing screen or mirror.

Thanks,
I will get me a can of air, and give it a shot.
I'll leave my can of WD40 on the shelf, I guess it really can't fix everything.

Sometimes with an old camera that has not been used the lubs get in places thay should not be.If they are metal blades look at both sides of the shutter blades and make sure there is no oil on them. if so carefully clean them off with a q tip, very carefully. Sometimes you can exercise them back into shape by tripping the shutter many times. If that does not work it is either repair or replace and a Rebel is most likely not too much more than the repair and a lot quicke, plus it can always be sold when the course is over
