I've had my Canon Rebel XS for about a year and a half, and although I'm very critical of my own photos, I'm becoming increasingly frustrated in general and I'm not sure if it's the limitations of the camera or my technique? My biggest complaint is not nailing the focus when taking pictures of a moving child. I use autofocus when photographing my children for portraits because I just cannot see well enough through the viewfinder to tell where the focus lies. Often, the images look fine when I review the LCD, but when I download them, the focus falls somewhere else and ruins what would otherwise have been a beautiful shot. It's maddening. I've noticed that the camera likes to "keep searching" for another focal point and often shoots blurry photos as a result, because it doesn't believe I know what I want to focus on. It's even happening when I use the auto modes- not just in manual. The only time the darn thing seems to work well is in full sunlight. Any thoughts? I'm saving for the 7D. Does anyone have any input for me on this camera-good or bad? Thanks.
