Cant figure out how to take a zoomed in picture. Every time i try it ends up taking the full shot instead of what i zoomed in on...

OK, I was playing around with this camera at Walmart, today. It's a very impressive camera, the T2i Digital camera.

However, there are a lot of buttons on it that do different things.

One thing, I noticed, was there are 2 rings, one for focusing, and the other for zooming.

This is an optical zoom, adjustable by turning the lense's ring. I do not see how it would take a full shot if you used the optical zoom. If you have a digital zoom, I'm not sure about that part (it's probably in the user manual).

Good luck on taking zoom photos.

hi have you tried removing the battery for couple of hours so it can reset any settings that need to be set back to default it only resets camera memory not settings you have changed but this can sometimes solve the problem your having.

Also when you switch camera on and then press zoom when the camera switches off does the lense go back inside the camera as normal or does it reamin out.

when you switch in on do all the other buttons work like can you take picture and can you access all the menu if you can then take it off auto if its on auto then see if this let you use zoom if not then the chances are their is a fault on the zoom button either jammed could be that the lense motor has come out of line with zoom button, is the display clear when you go to take picture without adjusting the zoom is it still possible to take pictures

It looks like a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse
