Why not my camera focus?

Hi everyone - I just joined the Group today.  I just bought the T5 and I already need help!  I went to dinner tonight and brought my new toy with me and I just thought that I play with it in full auto mode and get a few shots.  The lighting was not great but not horrible either, but in full auto mode it wouldn't focus and take the picture.  I had the 18-55 kit lens.  I've been about 3 feet from my subject.   My camera phone was able to fire a shot then why couldn't my T5?

Thank you!!!


OK we'll see;

Your goal should focus about 1 foot.  In the limit, you said, so this is not it.

In Full Auto, flash should have arisen if it was too dark. So, this isn't it no more.  Is it?

What could be the cause is, you had the goal set to MF.  The T5 works OK in normal daylight?

You can't really compare a cell phone for a digital SLR camera.  They don't work the same way. They have more in common with a video camera as them with a digital SLR.  It is not a trigger in a cell phone. If the sensor very, very little is excited for as long as necessary to get the image.  One of the reasons why their pictures are so bad, not to mention the tiny sensor!

I think you should start from scratch.  Redefine the T5 on factory defults and try again making sure that the lens is in AF, too.   The camera will only get you even in Full Auto.   Format the SD card once again, too.  Fully charge the battery.  If there is a problem with the T5, the Service Center ask you this question, or do it for you, then you might as well do it first.

    It seems that if the application has been downloaded on his iPad while it is connected to your Apple ID. If so, he'll always want to be updated with your Apple ID.

    You must remove the application from his iPad and then download it again while it is connected to its own code of Apple.

  • On my first Window7 Home Premium computer laptop, one is Mirosoft WORKS CD came with it, when I brought a new, there is no CD of Mirosoft works, why not?

    When I brought my first laptop in May 2010, from Curry, I only got a cd-rom a Mirosoft Works, I was band new computer, so I don't know about CD-ROM to reinstall and things like that. When I had learned some (but not many) of the basics on laptops and I had paid my loan which is how I got my first laptop, I bought a new, this laptop came with CD-ROM to reinstall, but there was no CD Microsoft Works, can someone tell me, why not? as ŒUVRES came handy, I type not enough or are paid enough to buy a Microsoft Office 2010. Many tanks, rich

    Hello rich trew,.

    Just to make sure that you understand it, some manufacturers of computers such as HP, Dell, Sony and gateway in the past have offered free software and operating systems. Microsoft Works was part of your first computer, but this has been the manufacturer of the computer. This has led people to believe that it is always included as part of the Windows operating systems. They included Microsoft Works, Roxio Easy CD Creator, Adobe Reader just name a few.

    Microsoft let computer makers bundle what they want, when they sell their OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) computers. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer of the computer what to offer and has nothing to do with the operating system of Microsoft.

    Thank you


  • Why not Camera Raw 6.7.1 w / Photoshop CS5 not converts from a Nikon D610 camera raw files?

    I just put my camera Nikon D90 for a D610.  I have been using Adobe Bridge to manage my pictures with the D90 and Camera Raw 6.3 to convert to use raw files in Photoshop CS5.  The new D610 wrote different raw files, so I've updated Camera Raw to the latest version (6.7.1) which is supposed to be compatible with the latest Nikon cameras.

    The D90 files always convert very well with Camera Raw 6.7.1 but cannot read the raw files of the D610.  Someone at - he saw no why not?

    Thank you


    You must have 8.3 beta version that works with CS6 and CC for D610.

    Kind regards


  • Too much like Samsung: why not try it?

    Apple users don't want all our applications, notifications or 'ways to use the phone' or 'like samsung or android phones." Which will lead more people to their market. What happened to the innovative apple, which launched the iPhone? Nobody had seen a scrolling screen [when deflected] front. Nobody had seen apps or internet the iPhone in a way he did.

    Instead of looking to make things look more uniform like other telephone companies... Why not try to do something nobody has ever done before.

    Optical Lafarge, for example designed glasses that will put the glasses of google to shame. There is technology out there to make a phone clears the screen. You could still have the top and the bottom of the iPhone is the black bar where your battery would be in place etc. so that everyone can have the phone, they always wanted: phone The Tony Stark.

    It is quite easy for you to understand if he arrived at the place of the apple logo on the back of the phone or on the bottom or a chassis etc, but why not "two" batteries Wireless charging. a redesigned (as your macbook) to adapt the new clear phone (bottom) and the second to be located in the other "non-transparent" part as a solar powered battery to make it load when your phone is just sitting on its own... Obviously not as fast as being connected or wireless... but nevertheless he would become the first HYBRID phone that everyone has been waiting for.

    This is how I think that APPLE should do things. Being innovative doesn't mean "do what that other people do copy and then try to do better." That's what competition is supposed to do. When apple came out with new phones from iPhone to iPhone 4, they put the competition to shame. I remember a commercial Android who says more 'fast as the iPhone.' A week later, a new iPhone is released and put that commercial to shame so it never aired again.

    It's the Apple, we know and love. So if you want to be ahead of the market for any other mobile device, then you will make a clear phone out of the gorilla glass or hard extra stuff that is currently in your watches, so it is not breaking when you sneeze and you put wireless charge, a second solar battery, and siri will continue to improve as you work toward him making similar to an AI interactive as she understands us.

    So I guess the question really is: apple decides to take these technological leaps, or can I apply for a job at the company to throw these ideas around? (half joking about that second part.

  • Windows 8 and EMAIL require IMAP Server only - POP why not as well?

    I bought a maching with Windows 8 is installed.

    It will not support a POP - only IMAP mail server.

  • Why not save a vector file in creative cloud?

    As a professional Illustrator, I've been a fan of Adobe ideas: work completed, just sent me a vector file and... Ok. Or instead, it was recorded at my creative cloud like a .ideas backed up by file. Perfect.

    Draw came with large additions to the ideas, no doubt. But it lacks the most elementary thing: export the work as a usable file (I don't talk of a dirty .jpeg, .png not own or even export to another application like Illustrator CC - I'm talking about a .svg vector file).

    Why not make a vector file to access creative cloud backup? In general, I don't need Illustrator to make improvements or corrections to my work. My illustrations came ready ideas or draw (I used to access the .svg files in the sandbox of the app, but with ios 9 that not more possible and ideas is no longer works with these ios also version).

    I think that (a vector file to my CC upward), would be a solution, because it would not interfere in politics of Adobe to not use versions inherited (according to the CS6), as well as its applications and at the same time would make things much easier for us, existing users.

    Someone here in another thread said that there are many other applications of vector in the itunes store, we are wasting our time trying to get these files to the CS6, but... If we continue using the draw it's because it's good... I would not be insistent in this idea for as long as I was if it wasn't a good app! But something is missing. Something I think it's pretty simple to do.

    Lopesco | StrictlyDigital,

    Thank you for your comments persuasive. This is a feature that has generated a momentum of opinion and pleas and requests (including Maruyama KBFeature Request: Save in CreativeCloud in vector format (svg / AI / draw)).

    I don't know when / if the functionality that has been so popular in the Adobe ideas will be added to the draw, but I'll certainly make sure that the product teams see your comments.

    Thanks again for posting.


  • Why not first pro cc won't let me add an adjustment layer

    Why not first pro cc leaves me not to add an adjustment layer

    I guess just because you have not provided a lot of information, but most likely, you try to create the adjustment layer in the Menu file, without having to focus on the project Panel. If you select the project Panel, and then file > New > adjustment layer must be available. You can also create the adjustment through the new button layer in the project Panel.

    Update 3.5 to 6. Supposed to have a button menu firefix.
    I haven't it. Why not??

    Maybe because you're showing the bar menu, which is supposed to be one or the other.

    View > toolbars > (uncheck) menu bar

    Or maybe you are in mode full screen that is pushed power with F11

    Please mark "resolved" a response that will better help others with a similar problem - hope it was her.

    You can make Firefox 6.0 look to Firefox 3.6. *, see numbered items 1-10 of the next topic difficulty Firefox 4.0 UI toolbar, problems (make Firefox 4.0 to 6.0, resemble 3.6). If you make changes, you must be aware of what has changed and what it takes to use changed or missing features.

    It is much more beyond these first 10 steps in the list, if you want to make Firefox more functional.
