Wow... Yes it can be fixed but only by a professional tech. You have either slightly shifter the reflector or damaged the sensor. There is also a possibility that you have loosened the auto focus as well. It may be just a simple adjustment. If it becomes too expensive of a fix I REALLY suggest an upgrade to a 40d. They are now affordable and there is a significant improvement in the models. You lenses are also compatible.

How to fix E32 error on canon powershotSD1300IS


This error normally comes when your Canon camera lens gets stuck in the barrel itself. There are some steps which can be followed to resolve this problem which as follows,
STEP 1: Switch on the camera while you hold the shutter button and connect it to the AC adapter or to the USB cable at the same time.
STEP 2: Now by default the lens should get properly aligned if not try to twist them slightly by holding down the camera lens with soft hands.
STEP 3: Just push and pull the lens slightly as it extends automatically.
STEP 4: Now when the lens is in the hard surface power on your camera.
STEP 5: Try to hit the camera softly beside the lens which might solve the issue.
You can try to format the memory card completely and then reinsert to your camera which might be the issue at times.

Pictures taken are not sharp


If you are upgrading from a previous "point and shoot" digital camera, the pictures from your digital SLR may seem "soft" by comparison. This is simply a difference in the built-in processing performed by the camera. Most DSLRs output images with less sharpening applied. I believe the philosophy is that the sharpening algorithm causes data loss, so less of it is used on the high-end cameras with the assumption that you can apply more later on your PC.
You can try shooting a picture using the RAW capture mode, then editing it using a program on your PC. By applying sharpening to the RAW image, you will most likely be able to produce a very sharp image.
You can also take a JPEG image with the camera and apply additional sharpening on the PC, but this process is more lossy with regards to the original data.

Center of picture is soft (out of focus)


paulc846,
There might just be a smudge or fingerprint on the lens, that's enough to cause that to happen to the center of an image. Get some lens cloth on a q-tip and try to gently wipe it clean. If the image is really grainy and the camera has recently been dropped the sensor is damaged. Let's hope for the smudge.

I have a canon rebel xti. Some of my images are soft...not too soft, but a little. If I upgraded to canon 40 D slr, would my pictures be sharper, like around someones eyes, assuming I keep the lens,...


I have a Rebel XTi and take professional images. It could be that your lens isn't as sharp as it should be or your sharpness settings in the camera are set low.
