Re: Canon rebel xt 1. image looks blury in eye
1. The viewfinder's diopter is probably out of focus (doesn't affect Auto Focus of photos). There's a dial and a +/- symbol next to the viewfinder. Turn the dial till you can see clearly through it. Alternative reason: The glass in the viewfinder is dirty/foggy. Use camera cleaning solution (a drop) on a cotton bud to clean it.
2. Malfunction needs Canon Service Centre to take a look at.

The flash duration is so short that it literally "freezes" all movement. With the flash off, any movement from you while clicking the shutter button will show up as blur in the pictures. If you can't hold the camera steady, consider buying a monopod or even a tripod. Or better yet, get a camera with built-in image stabilization.
Use the diopter adjustment to refocus the viewfinder to your eye.
Point the camera at a sign or something with writing on and half press the shutter button to focus then move the little adjuster at the top right of the viewfinder until the image in the veiwfinder is in focus
Hey abbyr, The most common cause of blurry images is called camera shake which is the slight movement of the camera caused by hand holding the camera during exposure. This cause can be solved by setting the camera to shutter priority and shooting with a faster shutter speed (1/60th of a second or faster). If you are using flash this is most likely not the problem since the shutter speed with flash is irrelevant since the duration of the flash determines the exposure. Another cause of blurry pictures is caused by not prefocusing on your subject prior to taking the image by holding the shutter button half way down so the camera can achieve proper focus before taking the picture. If none of this helps I would bring your camera to a local camera store and have an expert look at it and make sure you have it set up properly, and if you do I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps! Sincerely, Allan Go Ahead. Use Us.
So the problem is that it always looks blurry? If so, look at the little dial that is coming out of the viewfinder. It corrects the viewfinder for people with bad eyesight, kind of like built in glasses. make sure the white marks are lined up.
