Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera
I had this problem awhile ago - you must have accidently adjusted the focal area - it is sooooo easy to do without realising it. Here is what I was told:
Most likely, you have changed the AF point, which only takes effect in the creative modes (Manual, Av, Tv, P, etc)
There should be a button on your camera that has a grid like pattern above it, like
- - - - -
or so. press that, look through the viewfinder, and move the shutter or rear wheel, you should see the different AF points like up in red, and as you turn different ones will light up, and eventually all of them. also, you can look on the screen on top (or back, if its a rebel) and it will show you which ones are selected while in that mode, instead of looking through the viewfinder.

It is possible that your focus sensors are dirty. remove the lens to the body and try to clean the mirror, open the mirror and clean the small glass ( around 7 pcs). Clean all the mirrors inside. Also check if there is dent or misaligned mirror.
As an amateur photographer, I always set my focus sensor in the mid section only.

Thank you cyber sitter...my problem was the changed AF point. The lens wasn't focusing most of the time...now it's right on...thank you, thank you, thank you. I was starting to worry that I needed a new camera. Now I can continue upgrading lenses. :)

My Canon Rebel EOS XTI will auto focus but will take the picture. I have tried to take pictures in manual mode but still same results. Any suggestions?
