Question about Cameras

1 Answer

I have a canon rebel xsi that is not taking pictures on auto focus. It will take pictures on manual focus, but they're blurry. I changed my lens to a bigger one to see if it was the lens or camera, and it's the camera. I had the same problem with the other lens. I've tried cleaning it & turning the lens focus ring but is still doing it. Anyone know how to fix this problem?

Try cleaning the lens contacts on the camera body and on the lens.
This maybe the problem, it is not making contact with the lens zoom motor.

My Cannon Rebel XSi when pictures are taken are blurry


Try using manual focus. Make sure your auto focus points are correctly set. Look for button that looks like matrix. Press it then use/press joy stick type button to select auto focus point.

Our Canon EOS Rebel XSi no longer works on auto focus. The flash works but the camera just makes clicking noises and the screen says "busy". Any suggestions? The camera works fine in manual...


Optical focus relies on a gear driven motorized system to focus the lens. It sounds like the drive is either frozen by a foreign object (it doesn't take much) has gotten into the system, or a tooth has worn/broken on the gearing.

Try taking the lens off and blowing the camera out with some canned air. If that doesn't do it, it's a trip to the repair center.

My canon rebel XSi will not auto focus


Actually what I found to solve the problem was to first set the lens in "MF" and practice taking a picture manually to see if that would work. When I did this, I discovered that the fine tuning portion of the lens was somehow stuck mechanically. I heard a loud click as I turned it. That was all it took to fix the focusing mechanism on the lens. Then I set to "AF" and Voila, the camera worked just fine.

Canon rebel xsi, using 75-300 lens, taking photos of basketball game, pictures are blurry, especially the ones in "action" using the sports mode. also tried my 18-55 IS lens, same thing happening, using...


That's a big lens and for sports photography you are going to need a lot of light to ensure you can use a fast shutter speed to capture the action. Sports mode may do too much for you and you might want to try switching to a more manual mode. Try switching to Tv mode which gives shutter speed priority. Set the shutter speed to something around 1/150 or higher (1/200) which should be fast enough to freeze the action. Make sure the ISO is set to 200 or 400 for best results and see how you get on. This should stop any action based blur which would leave you with focus problems if the pictures are still blurry.
