    Exclamation Can somebody PLEASE tell me how to fix my T3i?

    So I think my problems are all with software. to try and fix my problems, I have updated to 1.0.2, reset all camera settings, changed lenses, and fully charged my battery.

    Problems:
    -To take a picture, I have to hit the shutter button twice, (The first hit, you hear the shutter, the second hit takes the picture). In live view, and auto modes, I only have to hit it once, though.
    -It will only auto-focus in video mode, and auto modes. Will not work in live view for other modes, or looking through the viewfinder in Manual modes.

    Can somebody please help me? Have any of you had these problems with a Canon?

    I will try to answer your questions to my best ability !

    Sounds like you have mirror lockup enabled at the very least. Make sure your custom functions are set to default.

    My T2i did the same thing....I was screwing with the settings and hit the mirror lockup. Make sure that is set right and you should be okay!
    I used to take photos like you. And then I took an arrow to the knee.

    Thank you! That fixed the shutter problem! What about the auto-focus not working?

    EDIT: I just fixed the auto focus in the custom functions! I'm so tempted to send you a box full of cookies

    I'm not sure what you mean, but I totally fixed everything! So everything works with live view and viewfinder

    haha, well it's 9:15 where I live, and I'm 15 :/ But today I was taking photos and it was brutal. I had to manual focus objects 400 feet away, and I had the mirror lock :P

    BTW, now that you're familiar with the custom function menu... You should try out back button focusing if you haven't.

    Would that be using the buttons I use to zoom when looking at images? I know you can use it for video, but I'm not a big fan...

    Yes, but it allows you to focus separately from the shutter button. So you can focus and recompose without refocusing to take the shot. It's extremely useful. Once I switched back when I had my T1i, I never looked back. Now I use it on the 5D1 and 5D2.

    Huh, maybe I'll have to try it out tomorrow and see how it is. Thanks for that advice
