Question about Canon EOS-5D Digital Camera

Focus lock no longer working when half press button

I use the focus lock by half pressing the button and then re composing the shot - when I last used my camera it stopped working and thought it might be the lens causing the problem but when I changed to a different lens it still wouldn't work - has anyone else had this - is it easily fixed or an expensive repair? - it is out of warranty now but I need to get it sorted quickly

HI there,

for clarification: did you reset the setting of your camera?? try to remove the battery for an 1hour to self reset the camera..

if the above info did not solve the issue this fucos lock button is the problem. it is easily to fix, it can be reapirable or replace the lock button.. got no idea on the labor and part costing on your area but better to inquire it first to the nearest canon service center.

let me know. update me again here..

I need to know how to do "Focus Lock" & my CD owners manual WILL NOT work!


Focus lock is a feature of most digital cameras.
It simple means that when framing an image and you get what you want you press the shooting button down only half way. That locks the focus and you can reframe and get it all right, while still holding the button down half way, and when you are happy with the composition you then press the button down completely and your shot is taken.

Frequently we're getting out-of-focus shots with our 710. It is not clear what setting is producing this. Most of our shots are taken in "reduce blur' mode. We can't figure out why we'll get about 35%...


You're supposed to press the shutter button half-way and allow the camera to lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way. Do you do that?

Appears in focus in viewfinder, but isn't


Change your focusing setting to spot focus. Then, focus on your main subject, keep the button half-way pressed while you re-compose the shot and then press it the rest of the way. Does that improve the shot?

Unable to focus image in viewfinder


There is a little wheel nest to the viewfinder on the camera. It is called something like dioptric focus (forgive me I am going off of what I heard pronounced) and it allows you to manually set the focus to your eyesight. Just adjust the wheel while looking through the viewfinder and you should be set.

Auto focus does not work in the creative zone


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 :-)

Focus on a particular subject


Try the FOCUS LOCK feature. This feature allows you to focus on a subject roughly the same distance away from you, then re-compose your picture without losing that focus. Open the lens barrier fully. Look through the viewfinder at the AF Target Mark (the 4 lines in the center of the viewfinder). Position the AF Target Mark on a subject roughly the same distance away from you. Press the shutter button halfway until the green lamp lights. While keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, re-compose your picture, then press the shutter fully.
