Canon Rebel xti - auto focus problem


\015 We are on holidays in Mexico and for some reason our camera is not working. We take all our pictures in the automatic mode - have for more than a year now - no problems. For some reason the autofocus mode is set to Al focus - cannot change this - just want it to automatically focus, as usual - we've been through the manual - can't seem to figure out the problem - we are not able to change to focus mode????\015

Answers :

AI should be focusing. You really can't change many settings when you are shooting in auto mode. Is the lens in AF mode?

I'm sure you have long since returned from vacation!

I bought digital Canon EOS Rebel XT two years ago, and I have really big problem with AF. I got one half of the pictures fuzzy. Sometimes the green light is on, I took the picture and it is fuzzy. Next shot is fine. I never have this kind of problem with Canon Rebel ( not digital). Now I can't rely on Auto Focus at all. Please explain to me where is a problem. Thanks, Irene

I have a canon rebel xsi that is not taking pictures on auto focus. It will take pictures on manual focus, but they're blurry. I changed my lens to a bigger one to see if it was the lens or camera, and it's the camera. I had the same problem with the other lens. I've tried cleaning it & turning the lens focus ring but is still doing it. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Focus problem Hi all. I have a Canon 300D Rebel camera and I find there is a major problem with the focusing - most pictures come out too soft whether I'm on Auto or Manual. I've got a job on Monday and intend to use that camera so I wonder if anyone can help get the best out of the focus. Thanks in advance.

I have a Canon Digital Rebel XT camera using a 75-300mm telephoto lens. My problem with the lens is that at times it is hard to adjust the focus either manually or automatically with the camera. I hear something rattling around inside the lens and at times the lens will not auto-focus and I have to remove the lens and manually twist it to get it back to some normal operation. Is this fixable or do I need a new lens?


It sounds like the lens has been dropped or knocked and is misaligned in the guides.Repair against new lewns is a difficult one as prices vary. I would perhaps consider replacing it with a used one. Before you do borrow a similar lens from some ... Canon Digital Cameras

Resolution I have a Canon Rebel XTI. Here is my problem. I took some senior pictures and then downloaded them onto my computer so that I could order them from my lab. The largest size that I could order was a 5x7 because of the resolution. What am I doing wrong. I have my camera set for the highest setting and I am using full auto. Can you tell me what may be affecting the resolution?


I suspect that what you have done is upload the thumbnails to the lab and not the actual picture.(check the sizes in kb) As fertobar says even at the lowest resolution setting the 400d is more than capable of printing out decent 5x7s. ... Canon EOS 400D / Rebel XTi Digital Camera

Hi there. I suddenly have a problem focusing my canon digital rebel xt. I have done nothing different to it, but cannot get it to focus AT ALL now. I am a professional photographer so tried other troubleshooting routes that I thought might cause focus problems (i.e. not enough light; played around with the shutter speed, f stops. etc.). I also took battery out, and put back. I took lens off and put back on. Any other ideas that you can suggest that would be causing this problem? Thank you for yo

Similar to another post, I dropped my Canon Rebel XS (strap caught a chair) and it landed on my tile floor. Everything seems to work fine except the auto focus. Because I thought it landed lens first I bought another 18-55mm lens. However when I put the new lens on the auto focus on does not work on this one either. Any ideas whats on what is going on?

I can view pictures, but cannot take them on any setting except A-DEP and it's not focused even then. Please Help!

My Canon digital rebel will not autofocus correctly. My camera has 7 points autofocus, but it will only autofocus on the far right point. All other points are not used. I have had the camera for 14 months and the problem just began. If I want to focus on anything in the left to center of the field of vision, I cannot do it. However, the lens focuses manually very well. Why won't my camera focus on other points than the far right one?
