Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
(Canon EOS 350 D) When taking a shot using any of the options in the creative zone, the auto focus will not operate and the AE indicater (*) appears at all times through the view finder while the shutter button is pressed. If I press the AE lock button the auto focus will work while half pressing the shutter button. Maybe I'm missing out on something simple on this, but any possible solutions would be appreciated. Paul.
Sounds like your custom functions have been changed to work this way. On the EOS 350 D it is Custom Function #04. To change it back to default you need navigate through Canon's menus. Here's how to get there: while in one of the creative zones go to your camera menu and navigate to the 5th tab on the right. Select “Custom Functions (C. Fn)” from this tab. 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. That should get your camera back to the expected auto focus with the shutter button.
Happy shooting :-)
