Question about Canon Rebel XT / EOS 350D Digital Camera

1 Answer

Canon rebel xt

I can only shoot in AF mode once and then I have to shut the camera off and turn it back on again to take another picture. I miss a lot of shots because of this problem. It will shoot in picture or landscape, but not AF more than just once. I have 2 batteries and I still have a problem.

I try to take a picture in AF mode while the confirmation light in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be taken, but in MF mode picture taken correctly what is the problem?..

It's attempting to tell you that AF has failed. I'd expect low light, low contrast, reflective subject like a mirror or chrome. A solid colour wall with no contrast will also cause a AF failure. Auto Focus relies on contrast. Switching to manual mode shuts off the system and you can take a picture with nothing in focus.

Dealy on snapping pictures

Check your focus modes to see if you are using one that is different to usual. When a DSLR has no focus lock it won't take a picture. Also verify that the focus motor in the lens is working ok. Google 'lens focus tests' and see what you can come up with.

Blurred subject in middle of photo

I own Rebel XT and Canon 50mm f1.8 MKII lens with plastic mount and noticed many pictures with missed focus, either front or back focusing. Meaning objects slight forward or below the intended subject is in focus. I've sent my body and the lens to Canon for evaluation and thet adjusted my focus sensors on the body. I still have problems and there are many threads related to focusing on this camera with 50mm f1.8 that the sensors on this camera do not do so well with fast lens and prone to missed focus.
Test your camera's focusing ability with a book or magazine where you focus on just one specific line and see if it is truly in focus when you review the picture.

No AF point display indicator in Creative Zone modes.

In creative mode I would imagine that you are required to choose the focus point. Try the arrow buttons.

First of all, shooting sports in manual is about the most difficult thing you could ever choose to do. I use the Av (Aperture Priority) and let the camera set the shutter speed. Just set your aperture wide open and fire away. That way, you're not constantly fighting with settings missing great shots. Also, in manual, BULB is simply one of the settings and can't be turned off. It can only be 'not selected'.

Best of luck!

AF will not work, manual shots do not show up on CF card

Your shutter curtain is broken. Shutter mechanism last for around 5000 shots, you need professional service to fix it.
