Having problems with your Canon Digital Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera with EF-S 17-85mm IS Lens ?

Pics not clear


\015 I have a digital canon rebel xt. I have had my camera for about 2yrs. It took great pic that were crystal clear. Now it seems like there not as clear and sometimes look grainy when enlarged. When I take pictures of more than one person it does seem to focus on all of the subjects or if I use the timer and jump in the photo then I'm not in focus. What do you think might be wrong.\015

Answers :

Use automatic functions, avoid the creative zone! You are clearly not very familiar with your camera!
First have you changed the batteries, next go into your menu and put everything back to reset the any changes that you have made or better known at default. Good luck. Let me know if this is helpfull
