Having problems with your Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera ?

The images are not crisp - as if not fully in focus

\015 To replace my existing 6 Megapixel point-and-shoot camera, I just purchased a Canon rebel 350D ( XT ) last week, that comes with a Canon kit zoom lens 18-55...I used AI as well as AI Servo setting to focus. The camera and the lens made the right noise to focus, which I verified in the viewfinder as well, to confirm. Howevers, when viewing the pictures as displayed, none of them appeared to be in focus. The results were nowhere near as sharp nor as crisp as the results I got from my point-and-shoot. Could you please give me some guidance ?\015

Answers :

I guess this is an issue with the XTi. I got the same problem. One of the tip that help to get sharpen images is to set the sharpness under the picture style options. Remeber that pictures styles are a manual options only. On automatic setting, the camera will choose the settings by their own. Make some pictures and see them to set their sharpness. Another optios is to shoot an image, RAW type, edit it with canon software and then save back to camera as a new picture style profile. This option is also useful to define a sepia profile. The XTi don't have a sepia option.
I am having the same problem. I bought a Tamron zoom lens as an add on. This lens costs more than the camera and yet images are not as sharp as i would expect from such a highly touted camera. My Kodak Z740 point and shoot gives sharper prints. This is very frustrating. I bought Rebel for Dummies and still am having the same problem. Very frustrating

LCD monitor does not light up, and consequently, does not display any image (as some other digital cameras do) during the aiming and focusing processes - sort of prescanning the image - before the shutter is half-way then fully pressed. In other words, is the LCD monitor designed soley to display image review (playback) and show menues!

Actually the reason is due to the way an SLR works. The shutter doesn't open up to the CCD device (the digital equivalent of the film) until you press the shutter release button to take the shot. Until then, an angled mirror points the viewed image u ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

The screen on my M380 does not show the image. The camera is fully charged and when I press the "on" button, the lens extends and opens. The screen is illuminated, but there is no image of what the picture will be. I can go ahead and take a picture -- it makes the appropriate sounds as it normally would and the flash goes off if needed. In fact, when I then plug into the computer, I can see that a picture was taken. However you cannot focus the shot because you cannot see the image on the s

Lens problem Hi. I have an Olympus FE-190 digital camera. not sure what happened, but now there is a problem with the lens. when i turn on the camera, the lens extends, retracts, several times (trying to find "home" I think). Image on the display screen is blurry. it WILL take a very blurry picture. there is a faint 'ratcheting" sound when the lens is fully extended. is there a way to 're-set" or calibrate the lens extension setting or focus? thanks very much for your assistance.

Focusing problems Hello, I have been trying to take close-up pictures (between 4-12 inches away from subject) but when I press the shutter button halfway, on the screen I see the image come into focus, come out of focus, come into focus,.. on and on for several moments until it settles on the out of focus image.

Nikon Coolpix S50 has screwey autofocus when I shoot close-up. I select my subject, center it within my frame, depress the shapsot button half-way in order to initiate the autofocus function... The camera then begins to slide between out-of-focus, to in-focus, then keeps on going to out of focus again, and then slides "back" to an out of focus position! I understand that it is "looking" for the sharpest image as it does this--- but what it consistently selects is NOT the sharpest image! Ide

When I turn the camera on and look into the view finder the sceen is wavy and does not show the images I want to record. The tape is VHS and appears to be moving but is not recording any images.

The focal length on my Nikon S52 Coolpix seems to be much shorter than it was originally. No matter the adjustment I make to the settings, at least part of the photo is extremely blurry. I have tried both with Auto-Focus on and off, but there is always a small square in the center of the view finder, and this is only region that shows a focused image. The camera used to produce sharp images throughout the picture. How can I adjust this?
