    So when I am using my camera, I go to take the picture press it down halfway to focus, yet the only focusing "square" that is lighting up is in the bottom left corner... This is the only place that will let any focusing occur. otherwise it wont let me. Anyone experience something similar? Please let me know if you have any information regarding this!

    I don't know what camera you're using but there should be some kind of selector on the back that you press to change the point that you're focusing on.

    Agreed - check the manual for your camea as I suspect that you have accidentally selected an indevidual point to focus from. Generally speaking I prefer to have it set to centre point only - that way I have control over what it focuses on - lettingthe camera pick is sometimes risky as it can pick the wrong things
