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?

I dropped my canon rebel xsi from about 7feet, but it still took pictures after i checked it. nothing cracked, not the lense, or the screen. but than about an hour later, when i tried taking pictures it said error 99. i took of the lense and tried cleaning it inside, and when i put it back on it still said error 99. it says shooting is not possible. turn the power switch to off and on again, or reinstall the battery. i did those, but the error 99 keeps poping up. i dont know what to do?

Harsh shadows we are trying to take pictures for a friend's small wedding - at the rehearsal today we practiced picture taking with both a Canon Rebel XSI (using both the regular lense and adding a telephoto lense) and a Canon PowerShot S5-IS. The problem is that we are getting a lot of pictures that have a 'hard' shadow on the people in them. It doesn't appear to be a regular shadow because it doesn't 'land' on the different surfaces behind them, but is more like a shadow attached to them. Any

I have a Canon Rebel EOS that I am having trouble power wise with. I can have a fully charged battery in, the power off option off but it still turns off sometimes before I even take a picture.
