Hi,

I think your AF sensors need cleaning. Its advisable to take it to a professional cleaner or just do what I did using a bulb blower.

THe AF sensor is below the mirror of the camera. If you lock the mirror up, then you can put the blower in there. Hold the camera with the sensor facing downwards so that the dust can drop out.

Be careful while doin so as the mirror assembly is very delicate and is easily damaged.

Do let me know if it helped.

Thanks
Kanu

My canon rebel XSi will not auto focus


Actually what I found to solve the problem was to first set the lens in "MF" and practice taking a picture manually to see if that would work. When I did this, I discovered that the fine tuning portion of the lens was somehow stuck mechanically. I heard a loud click as I turned it. That was all it took to fix the focusing mechanism on the lens. Then I set to "AF" and Voila, the camera worked just fine.

Canon Digital Rebel XT auto focus


Auto Focus does not determine exposure. Only sharpness. "Wrong" exposure could be due to the metering mode being set in Spot Metering. Set it back to Evaluative Metering which may improve the overall even exposure of your shots. Test your shots in full auto or P mode. M (Manual) mode will require you to check the exposure setting manually (you can see the indicator in the viewfinder when you half-press the trigger)

Camera won't shoot with lens on Auto Focus


Talked to canon support, they suggested to send lense in for review/repair. They said it could be the motor, I think it was a gear problem based on the noises and jerkiness of the focusing action while in manual focus (manual focus gave out as well). Cost TBD - "would definately be more than $50. I shopped around and elected to buy a new lense rather than try to hassle with the repair, shipping, insurance, and the wait, etc. Besides, I have a deadline that I need the lense for, so repair at Canon really became a non-option. I think the cost would've been pretty much the same in the end as the new lense, since this wasn't one of the costlier of lenses to begin with.
