When ever I take a picture, it used to look fine on the camera screen. it looked fine when it's focusing. But as of late, the image has been an orangy redish tint and fuzzy when focusing, and then as soon as the picture has been taken, there are beams and swirls of light everywhere! I can still see the image, but giant swirls, lines, and as said before, beams, of light are all over the photo. I do not know what is wrong. Please help my with my problem? Camera is barely 1 year old.

It sounds like your camera settings have the( AF Assist Beam) on Off? That is the Amber Color light you see when you half press the shutter button. If that setting is set to OFF, then the camera can not focus in low light giving you blurry pictures as it can not see any light to assist the camera on focusing. If you turn on the (AF Assist Beam) to on, they when you press the shutter button half ways down you will see a Reddish/ Amber light, that light helps the camera find a focus point, giving you a slightly better low light photo.
you pressing the shutter button half-way and giving the camera time to
lock in the focus before pressing the rest of the way? If not, the good
pictures were just luck.
The overall image is out of focus If Pan focus is being used, the image may be out of focus; use Auto Focus Mode. Pan focus uses a focus range of several feet, so the image might be blurry but will be captured faster. This could occur in the EX-Z30, EX-Z40, EX-Z50, EX-Z55 and EX-Z57. If digital zoom was chosen and the image becomes unclear, only use optical zoom, and move closer.
Some cameras display a grainy picture in low light. Do you have the camera set to the highest number of megapixels and fine image or do you have it set to a lower resolution to get more pictures on the card?
The 400D uses flash assisted focusing. In low light conditions the auto focus cannot get a focus lock so it pops the flash a few times so the lens has a chance to focus. You will notice this will go away when in the manual focus mode (the switch on the side of the lens).
The only way around this problem (as people in a photo think the photo has already been taken and looks away when the camera actually takes the picture) is to use a hotshoe mounted TTL Canon Speedlight (430ex or 580ex) which use an infra-red focussing beam.
It sounds like you have a problem with the auto focus on the lens. The 18-135 has a focusing motor inside the lens itself. If this motor is not working, then it won't focus. It could also be the contacts (small and silver on the lens look like ball bearings buried halfway into the top part of the lens where it connects inside the camera body) or the contacts inside the camera body. These can be CAREFULLY cleaned with alcohol and a QTip or a clean pencil eraser. Just make sure you don't get anything into the lens or camera.
If the camera is over a year old, it may just be time to take it to the camera shop for a cleaning.
I think you may be doing what I have ben doing. The auto focus beam I think emits from the small sender between the hand grip and the lense portion of the camera, ( Bad Design) When gripping the camera my fingers sometimes block the sender and causes it to be blurry as in not focused. .Try to keep your fingers from going in between the grip and lens and I think it will work for you.Let me know if this helps. I am so glad I found this out because this camera takes nice pictures.
