Question about Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera
Just purcahsed the Canon Rebel XS. When I go to take a picture, using any mode with flash on, it pre-fires like mad. It just blinks while it focuses. Is this a setting issue? Or a defect?
It is your camera using the flash to assist in focusing, if it bothers you you can change it in your menus, I have a XTi so yours will differ slightly.
Switch your camera to "P" mode.
Press "Menu" button.
Go to setup menu 3
scroll down to "Custom Functions (C Fn.)"
press to the right until you find "AF - assist beam"
And press up or down.
Set to "Does not emit"
Press "menu" button twice.
