My Canon 7d will not longer autofocus using any of my lenses (I use TV mode). If I switch to AUTO the autofocus works and I hear the "beep, beep, beep." My lenses are all set to AF


Try cleaning the contacts on the lens mount and the lenses using an eraser. Do make sure that any dust falls outside and not into the body.

When taking photos, the image is not captured when using liveview


Sure you are pressing the shutter realise button half, so the camera can focus?
Only when the middle AF-point (square in the middle) becomes green and you hear a beep, you can press the button compete to make the picture. With live view, you degrade your camera to a point and shoot. Focusing takes longer that way. Can be handy is special situations, but the focusing could be a pain, when you are used of taking pictures trough the view finder.

I can't seem to get my autofocus to work on my new Canon T1. The mode dial is switched to full auto, the fous mode switch is on AF, and the Image Stabilizer switch is in the "on" position. When...


Hope I can help with some input to your problem. Let me suggest please that you switch the "mode" dial to "P" for program, check your ISO (I personally shoot ISO 100) and set it for a speed ISO 400 or lower. Most DSLR's use contrast to focus so a mirror, chrome, flat body of water, painted wall especially a white wall are just terrible to get an auto focus on. Also auto focus isn't going to happen in darkness unless you have (for Canon) an external Infrared auto focus assist beam. Also you could be to close to your subject as in attempting to do close up or macro photography and have over extended your lens capabilities.

You aren't doing anything wrong it's just I think that you have fallen into one or all of the above situations that auto focus just can't read being either dark, lacking contrast, or reflective surface or to close to your subject.

I wanted you to get off the full auto so you could enjoy the Rebel and expand on its features shooting in full auto turns it into a very expensive point and shooter. Shooting in "P" you can do what is called Program shift where you actually input settings into the camera before the picture is taken.

That little green dot focus confirmation will work even in manual mode so even though it might look out of focus to you if that dot is green and solid not blinking then it's in focus squeeze the shutter make the shot.

One other bit of information make sure you shut the IS off before mounting the camera on a tripod. if left on it will actually cause more vibration (that took me a while to figure out) have a great day hope this was a help sorry it took three days for me to find you with this problem Robert in Canada

The Canon Rebel XS is a digital camera not film. Most of your problems may stem back to not having a media card installed. Here is a great link for the Canon EOS Rebel XS showing important functions http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/canon/eos_rebel_xs-review/ If you have a media card installed and it has been formatted to the camera then the red light you mention will only flicker for an instant on your focus point, you got to be pretty quick to see it. The in focus light you want to see is a small green dot in the lower right corner of the viewfinder. This "green dot" needs to be solidly lit not flickering. When the camera has achieved focus the "beep" should sound, I suspect you haven't reached focus yet. Not focusing could be as simple as having the lens switch set to manual focus or the camera set to manual focus.

How do i auto focus while on manual mode?


That's the idea of "manual" mode...you do it yourself. When you manually focus, the camera will still beep when you reach the correct focus.

Canon Rbl XT out of focus in viewfndr when shutter half way down


Hello,
It's possible that the reason the "pictures turn out fairly good" is that your f-stop is set high enough that even though the image isn't properly focused, you have enough depth-of-field to bring your subject into "near focus". Does your lens try to focus back and forth when you half-press the shutter? If not, double check that the lens is in autofocus and not manual focus. You can also try cleaning the contacts between the lens and camera. Take the lens off, and then one-at-a-time clean the contacts on both the lens and the camera, using a clean pencil eraser. Gently rub the contacts. Be sure to hold the item upside down so that the eraser debris falls on to the table, not into the camera body or lens!

If none of this helps the autofocus may have become damaged and you need to have the lens and camera looked at by Canon Repair.

Focusing Still Photos with SD870 IS


If you check page 45 in the manual, you'll see that the orange light during the half press indicates that the flash is turned on. A single beep means that the camera is having difficulty getting a "focus lock" (usually when shooting in low light conditions). See page 100 of the manual for suggestions on how to improve the chances for getting a well-focused picture.
