I bought a second hand d70s. it seems to have a problem. the shutter release button does not seem to do anything when pressed half way (like auto focus). I can only get autofocus to work if i program AE-L/AF-L button to AF-ON. I press the AE-L/AF-L button on the back, then press the shutter to take the shot. And if i set the AE Lock On, pressing the shutter button half way does not lock the exposure setting. so there seems to be an issue with the shutter button itself...is there an easy fi

Rebel 350d - i press button 1/2 way and it auto focuses but wont take pic when presses the rest of the way. every once and a while it will take a pic.any thoughts?
It won't take the picture until the focus is not confirmed (big dot lights up in the lower right side of the viewfinder) even though the button is pressed all the way down. tamron lenses are notorious for slow (noisy) auto focus, so you have to ... Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

I am using Canon 1000D dslr for more than 18months, it was working fine until last Sunday. I went outside and started taking few shots... it was not focusing properly (or should I say not at all!) and pictures are coming blurred. When I press the shutter button half, it should run the motor (in autofocus mode) and focus, but it is not doing anything (i.e. no red dots are coming)... what could be the problem? Thanks for any help.................
The autofocus motor could be be broken, or the lens may not be communicating correctly with the camera. One thing that can help if it's not communicating correctly is to clean the lens contacts. If you take the lens off, you should see some gold plat ... Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera

Every time I power up my D5000, and press the shutter button half way (to auto-focus) the image in the viewfinder shakes, and after a few seconds the image shifts slightly and something internal seems to lock into place. After this, all functions are normal, but this issue is annoying, and obviously not right. Any ideas?
Inside the lens assembly, is a circular, edge-geared focusing lens, with electromagnets on it. It has to be able to spin freely to focus, and focuses with signals from the focusing system and cpu, etc. When any dust, lint, sand, etc. get inside ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera
I have a canon rebel xs. When I try to take a close-up picture , my camera can't focus and it makes a weird sound when I press the shutter button. It just wont take the picture.

Camera shuts down after shutter button is pressed. It shuts down halfway through the shutter operation. Everything else works fine-reviewing pictures, settings in menu, focusing, exposure settings etc. The camera focuses ok when the shutter button is half pressed then when you press the shutter button fully, the mirror goes up, shutter appears to open then the camera shuts down with no power. Only way to get mirror etc back to normal is to remove the battery and refit. When camera is turned b

I had my D5000 for a month now, recently i noticed something with my camera. looking though the viewfinder only, whenever i focus (half pressing the shutter button), the view from the viewfinder moves up, and without making the shot and letting go the half-pressed shutter button, the view from the viewfinder then moves down to its original position. These movements are noticeable just through the viewfinder with the VR on. But without the VR, the view from the viewfinder makes no movement. i don

Using my Canon XSi/450D, I'm interested in doing High Dynamic Range photography. But I can't discover how to make the automated shutter-speed range multi-shot (3 for the 450D) AEB work. I've gone into the menu and select and change the AEB range ( -2V) and pressed "set." Working from the "AV" in creative mode, I then set up my first shot with focus and ISO, and shoot. Now what? When I press the shoot button, an ordinary photo is captured, and if I continue to press the button additional cap

All of a sudden, my Canon Rebel SLR stopped focusing and I cannot depress the shutter button when on AF mode. I can press the shutter button on MF mode, but there is no focusing happening. Do you think it needs to be repaired? I've looked through the manual but cannot find any way to resolve the problem. The camera is only 3 months old.
Try this...remove the lens and fire off a few shots. Clean the contacts on the lens and camera body where they meet with a cotton swab lightly dampened with rubbing alcohol. Re-attach the lens and try it. ... Canon Digital Rebel XSi Digital Camera
Focus camera will not focus, even sight screen is out of focus The camera will not focus. When switched on it beeps with a flashing green light near rthe view-finder and the lens housing extends. This repeats and the then the viewing screen goes blank. Pressing the AEL button will illuminate the viewing screen, but it is out of focus. Half depression of the shutter makes no difference. I had previously some intermittent operation of the zoom mechanism. The camera has not been dropped or jarred.
