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.

Automatically zooming in


I contacted Canon about this same issue in my Elura 65, and they said to send it to them, they would have their techs investigate the cause and then contact me with the costs to make the repairs. They said that if I didn't want them to repair the problem, after I found out the cost, that they would reassemble the camera and send it back.


Mine is out of warranty, even with buying it at Costco, who doubles the warranty time. In my researching the problem, I have found another person with the same problem who had it repaired for something like $175. I will weigh that against purchasing a newer model.


Someone else did reccommend wacking in on the top a few times, shutting if off and turning it back on, and that would often fix the problem. I don't want to take the chance of ruining an important shot that may not come around again, by having to Indian Leg Wrestle my camera to get it to work. Best wishes.

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
