Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera
This happens in advanced shooting modes only with or without flash
This is your first SLR?
The normal procedure is to press the button halfway to get the focus. This is indicated by one or more red LEDs lighting in the viewfinder and a confirmation beep. Once you have this, you press the button fully to take the shot.
As the camera will not take a photo when not in focus, then pressing the button once and letting go will focus it, and pressing it again will take the shot.
Get used to pressing it halfway before taking your shots and it will soon become second nature to you.
