Question about Canon EOS 500D EOS Rebel T1i Digital Camera with 18135mm lens
For this kind of pictures, Don't try to focus on a lightning, it is to quick and mabe the overall brightness is not enough for your camera to focus.
So you can try to focus on something at infinity, if you manage then, put your focus on manual before re focusing, this way you will be able to take as many pictures as you want.
You can also try to focus manually directly.
And for you information the best way to take a lightning picture is to put your camera in bulb mode, use a remote control, open the shutter and close it as soon as you'v seen a lightning.
Hope this helps.
and good shooting !

Hi I suggest you find out what cause the problem like memory card, lens, or body itself. First, remove lens and memory card both. Please setup M Mode and enable without memory card function. Then set Bulb shutter speed, press shutter release button and hold the button 2 to 3 second. If properly working, you should see image sensor front of mirror box inside and it means mechanical function doesn't have problem. If not, please tell me how it doesn't work as much as describe functional information. Thanks and kindly regard!

If a lens has an "A - M" switch, move it to "M" to manually focus. If the switch
- M " then leave on M/A (unless you're going to be taking several or more in manual mode), as these lenses may be focused manually at any time in either position. As soon as you tap
the shutter button in M/A you return to autofocus.
More advanced lenses, like the 18-200mm, 70-300mm VR and 18-135mm, and any lens with an M/A position, may be focused manually at any time without moving any switches. Leave them in their A or A/M positions.
I hope this helps and good luck!
