I let her shoot with my 350D when I was on the water, for 5 minutes.
Guess what happened?


The focus point ended up in the corner segment so everytime I click the shutter the center never focus, and the focus mode in "AI Servo". it scared me &#$&^%$&*&% when I first got back my camera. And some more, she immediately went to pirtate boat so every picture I shot focused on the girl behind her. :cry:

Is the thread starter trying to say that the friend could have pressed some buttons and unknowingly, divert the camera's actual focus point to the corner of the framing instead?

If that is the case, I thought it is possible to set the camera back to its original setting?

Peace,

Thats the best answer thus far hehehehe....

If she knows nothing about cameras...I would have lock the AF to the center...or is Canon DSLR that bad that it does not have a AF zone lock? heheheh When I had a g/f that's what I always do when she wants to take command of my camera.

since u already said she knows nothing about cam, so the fact that she dunno what she pressed and changed the setting is no one's fault..

and since u are the owner of it, you should know to check your settings before you even click the shutter... and if the focus pt was shifted to the corner, its actually possible to see in your viewfinder where the focus pt is.. the red square would have lit up when you are pre-focusing...

More importantly, I think that's something everyone failed to asked...

Is the girl behind her pretty? :think:
