I have a EOS Rebel XS camera with a 18-55mm lens. Every time I try to zoom in both lens and the picture are blurry. Am I just in the wrong settings?

make sure the lens is not in manual mode. on the side there is MF and AF make sure its in AF for auto focus. id its still looking nblurr in the viewfinder when pressing the shutter half way then user the smal wheel next to the viewfinder so the viewfinder is calibrated for your eye.

When I look through the eye hole of the Canon Rebel t1i, the view and numbers of the eye hole are blurry even though everything is auto focused, and when I take the picture, it's clear. Why is the eye hole...

There's a diopter adjustment knob just to the right of the viewfinder. Turn it while looking through the viewfinder at a blank wall until the numbers in the viewfinder appear sharp. This knob allows the camera to adjust for individual eyesight.

My Canon EOS Rebel xs takes a focused photograph, but when you look through the viewfinder it is blurry. Even the light meter is blurry. Why would that occur?

Can you change the diopter setting on the viewfinder to accommodate your vision? It's usually a dial or slide switch at the eyepiece.

Canon rebel xt 1. image looks blury in eye

1. The viewfinder's diopter is probably out of focus (doesn't affect Auto Focus of photos). There's a dial and a +/- symbol next to the viewfinder. Turn the dial till you can see clearly through it. Alternative reason: The glass in the viewfinder is dirty/foggy. Use camera cleaning solution (a drop) on a cotton bud to clean it.

2. Malfunction needs Canon Service Centre to take a look at.

Veiw finder(eye piece ) out of focus pictures are fine

Use the diopter adjustment to refocus the viewfinder to your eye.

Point the camera at a sign or something with writing on and half press the shutter button to focus then move the little adjuster at the top right of the viewfinder until the image in the veiwfinder is in focus

Rebel XT - LCD monitor.

The camera is a Single Lens Reflex (SLR). It is not possible to use the LCD display as a viewfinder. See Canon's answer here: CanonUSA

My camera cannot focus

Are both the lens and camera set to autofocus?

Can't tell when Rebel xt is focused

So the problem is that it always looks blurry?
If so, look at the little dial that is coming out of the viewfinder. It corrects the viewfinder for people with bad eyesight, kind of like built in glasses. make sure the white marks are lined up.
