Re: 5d focus confirmation light
Just a wild guess, but in predictive AI focus mode you need a subject in motion for focus to lock and focus adjustment is continous until the exposure is made, in one-shot AF or manual focus mode focus will lock on still subjects. Super nice camera btw.

When you are depressing the shutter release button from top to bottem in one go, the camera does not get enough time to focus. When the picture is not in focus a red light will shown on the screen or in the view finder. Try to press the shutter release button half way down, till the red light goes out and only then press the button fully.
it won't take the picture until the focus is not confirmed (big dot lights up in the lower right side of the viewfinder) even though the button is pressed all the way down. tamron lenses are notorious for slow (noisy) auto focus, so you have to be patient when focusing and half press repeatedly several times before it locks down, confirmes the focus and takes the picture.
Try this. Aim the camera at the person/object you want to take a picture of. Press the shutter button "HALF WAY DOWN" wait 2 seconds then complete by pressing all the way down to take the picture. The auto focus works on the "half way down" stroke. Some cameras have a light that goes from red to green to let you know the focus was completed. Or, just wait the 2 or so seconds.
The normal procedure is to press the button halfway to get the focus. This is indicated by one or more red LEDs lighting in the viewfinder and a confirmation beep. Once you have this, you press the button fully to take the shot.
As the camera will not take a photo when not in focus, then pressing the button once and letting go will focus it, and pressing it again will take the shot.
Get used to pressing it halfway before taking your shots and it will soon become second nature to you.
The AF point will luminate very briefly when you press the shutter half way. To change the AF points press the Zoom in button + and then use the dial on the top to select the point you want. If you are not able to do this go into the Menu setting and under custom funtions go to No. 13 and set this to 0:Normal.
To get the image to focus and remain focused while you recompose set the shooting mode to 'One Shot' do this be pressing the AW-WB button them turning the top dial to get to 'One Shot'. When in 'one shot' press the button half way recompose whith out lifting your finger and squeeze all the way when you have recomposed.
Digitak cameras have an auto focus in which you hold the button half way down and it will focus. a green light will appear at the top of the screen if the light is ideal for the shot. You can push the button all the way down without the half way for auto focus but you will have to hold it down for a few seconds for it to take the shot. It sounds as though you just may not be giving the camera enough time to actually take the shot.
Shutter release button has two positions. Auto focus function activate first when u press butten halfway(u can see a focus indicator icon with beep sound).Now if u press it some more, camera will take snap at earliest .So pl confirm the subject to be focused by keeping the button half way pressed then press it some more at the right moment.Also cancel the red eye reduction function when u r using flash because it creates more delay .
