    HELP PLEASE
    Canon EOS 600d


    My camera all of a sudden has screwed up, 4 days before I take it on it's first overseas trip. It appears that the camera is unable to focus (no matter which lens or settings i use) but the resulting images are still fine. This makes manual focus impossible!
    I have not dropped it or made any setting changes that I can recall, and it was bought only about 3 months ago!

    Help!

    The first thing to try is to revert to the camera's default settings. To do this refer to page 176 of your manual.

    You have tried the little focus adjustment on the viewfinder? Is manual focus with the LCD also impossible? It is very rare that I use manual focus with my 50D.

    After reading your post again it appears that the problem may be a maladjusted viewfinder, as Kelly suggested, rather than a focus problem since your photos look fine. The diopter control that Kelly referred to will let you adjust the viewfinder to a comfortable level of sharpness.
