Canon Rebel xti - auto focus problem

We are on holidays in Mexico and for some reason our camera is not working. We take all our pictures in the automatic mode - have for more than a year now - no problems. For some reason the autofocus mode is set to Al focus - cannot change this - just want it to automatically focus, as usual - we've been through the manual - can't seem to figure out the problem - we are not able to change to focus mode????

AI should be focusing. You really can't change many settings when you are shooting in auto mode. Is the lens in AF mode?

I'm sure you have long since returned from vacation!

Hope this helps!

You have your own answer - the lens is damaged, probably beyond economic repair.

My canon rebel xti is broken?


This will happen if you have the camera set to manual and the aperture/shutter speed combination does not let in enough light. There's a wheel on the top of the camera with M, A, S, P, Auto settings - turn the wheel to select P or Auto and try again.
Also, if you're indoors, you may have to use the flash.

Canon Rebel Xti Wont autofocus


I dropped my camera and thought the autofocus broke. It turn out that it swithed from autofocus to manual focus. There's a switch on the lens. Check if that's your problem too.

Canon rebel xti focus issues


I think it might be a lens issue.
make sure you change the macro option. the macro must be activated if you are taking a picture of something which is close to the camera. if it's not activated, the picture will not be focused.
The same will happen if the item is far and the macro is ON.

The flash keeps flashing


hi sneakers
the camera is firing the flash to help it auto focus,the only way to stop it find an area of the picture that has more light/contrast or switch to manual focusing.

Tamron lens for Xti?


if it is an auto focus lens that works on one eos camera, it should work on almost all of them. the only known exception is that some high end extenders will not fit the eos1dmarkII as it protrudes into the opening too far.
but a good rule is that if it fits without any obstruction issues, it should work. try cleaning contacts on the lens and camera body. if that doesn't fix it, talk to Tamron. you can use it manually, but will not be as easy and you would get less predictable results.

my suggestion is to always go with lens from camera maker.

sounds like there is an issue with the tamron lens. not the camera.
good luck
