Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

No AF point display indicator in Creative Zone modes.

Canon Rebel XT works fine in all of the Basic Zone modes. When I change to a Creative Zone mode, there is no red AF indicater showing where the camera is focusing. I have taken pictures and the camera is focusing fine, I just don't know what focal point it is choosing. I am using a 28-135mm IS Canon lens.

In creative mode I would imagine that you are required to choose the focus point. Try the arrow buttons.

Auto focus does not work in creative modes


That is a custom function of the camera that can be change back to default with ease. While in one of the creative zones press the menu button and navigate to the 5th and final tab on the top right. 8f5da8f.jpg
This is the Setup menu 2. In this menu, select “Custom Functions (C. Fn)” . This will open a submenu of numbered options. Select #04 and set it to 0: the default AF/AE lock on a half depress of the shutter. 7528356.jpg
That should get your camera back to the expected auto focus with the shutter button.

I have a Canon Rebel XT/EOS 350D. For some reason when I try to view the AF, ISO or WB menus they are not displaying. Can you help?


You need to set your Mode Dial to one of the modes in the creative zone (i.e. one of the modes: P, Tv, Av, M or A-DEP) in order to access the AF, ISO and WB menus. Those menus are not displayed when the Mode Dial is set to one of the Basic Zone modes.
Hope this helps /Chris

Camera features canon 18-55 digital cmera EOS 350 D


It does different things depending on the camera settings and only works in the creative zone settings not the automatic settings.

In AV mode it changes the aperture
In Tv Mode it changes the shutter speed
In M mode it changes the shutter speed unless the AV button is pressed when it then changes the aperture

Camera malfunctioning in Creative Zone Modes


It sounds like your firmware has become corrupted.

Visit the Canon Support Site and download the latest firmware (make sure your batteries are fully charged before replacing firmware - if the batteries go flat during the firmware over-write operation your camera will be trashed).
