Question about Canon EOS 600D Rebel T3i Digital Camera

2 Answers

My Canon Rebel t3i seems to be slow focusing at times and sometimes will not focus at all. It seems slow to react to the shutter button at times. Lens is set to a/f and the camera is set to auto.

There is a minimum focus distance on lenses and if you are within that distance the lens will not focus. First of all just try cleaning the contacts on the lens and the camera with a pencil eraser. If that doesn't work then are you able to focus the lens manually. If so and it won't focus in auto mode then you may have a broken ribbon cable in the lens. It is a simple relatively inexpensive repair/replacement job if that is what is needed.

My canon 70d does not zoom and focus automatically


My guess is the self timer was accidently turned on

Description

Using the Self-timer on the EOS REBEL T3i.

Solution

The self-timer is useful when you want to photograph yourself or prevent camera shake caused when the shutter is released.
1. Set the power switch to <ON>.
2. Press < > button.
  • You can check the self-timer operation with the self-timer lamp, beeper, and countdown display (in seconds) on the LCD monitor.
  • Two seconds before the picture is taken, the self-timer lamp will stay on and the beeper will sound faster.
Attention:
With [ ], the interval between the multiple shots may be prolonged depending on the shooting functions settings such as the image-recording quality or flash.
NOTE:
  • After taking self-timer shots, you should check the image for proper focus and exposure.
  • If you will not look through the viewfinder when you press the shutter button, attach the eyepiece cover. If stray light enters the viewfinder when the picture is taken, it may throw off the exposure.
  • When using the self-timer to photograph only yourself, use focus lock on an object at about the same distance as where you will stand.
  • To cancel the self-timer after it starts, press the < > button.

Canon EOS 400D Flash Problem


yes..that's a twitchy button all right..can you inspect it to see if there's any accumulated dirt/grease can cause it to actually 'stick'

Camera takes blurry pictures up close and sharper ones from afar. Camera will not focus on specific object either.


There is a "close focus" limit, depending on your lens. The standard "kit lens" won't focus closer than about 2 feet away. Check that the switch on the lens is set to "AF" not "MF" "MF" means, "manual focus".
When you lightly press the shutter button, the viewfinder should blink with little dots/squares indicating what it focused on, and beep. If it doesn't, and you are set for "AF", then your camera needs repair.

When I zoom in to take a picture I get it focused I hit the button and the picture shows up not zoomed?


How are you zooming in? If you are using a button to zoom, that is to check the focus: it's just enlarging the image for your convenience during focusing. In order to get a zoomed-in image when press the shutter button, you need to adjust the zoom ring manually on the lens barrel before taking the picture.

Why won't my Canon Rebel t3i/600d focus


You could have set your camera in MF and on the lens is a switch, you could have set (accidentally) to MF.
If both are correct and you camera still does not focus automatically let me know.

When taking photos, the image is not captured when using liveview


Sure you are pressing the shutter realise button half, so the camera can focus?
Only when the middle AF-point (square in the middle) becomes green and you hear a beep, you can press the button compete to make the picture. With live view, you degrade your camera to a point and shoot. Focusing takes longer that way. Can be handy is special situations, but the focusing could be a pain, when you are used of taking pictures trough the view finder.

Canon t3i will not fire


Have you got the camera set for mirror lock up. Check and disable if appropriate. When mirror lock is selected the first press of the shutter button moves the mirror up the second press fires the shutter

My new cannon rebel isnt working, the lens will focus but the screen is black. cannot get the shutter to activate


Mirror mechanism is locked up and probably out o synch with the rest of the shutter cocking mechanism. sometimes there is enough power in battery to focus lens, but not enough to power the winder/shutter/miror mecansim- check the battery

Only one auto focus point


have you already pushed the focus point button - top right, under your thumb and then push the set button? Pushing the set button will flip between only the centre focus point and all 7.
