Default Help with Canon EOS 10D focus points!

Hi all!

I have a Canon EOS 10D. I have had this camera for about 3 months now and it has been great. When I went out to do some shooting today and put the camera in manuals setting like (TV, AV and so on) the camera would focus but it is not showing the focus point. I will take the camera back to where I got it from but before I do I would ask if any of you have had this problem.

Have you changed any of the custom functions lately?

Check out Custom Function number 10 on page 149 in the manual. It's called "Superimposed Display." It sets the AF points to either flash or not flash when focus is achieved.

When in AI-servo mode it won't show focus points either, I believe.

I remember it like barthold does. If you were in AI-Servo it won't display the point. I think this is because it's always changing as it tracks the moving target.

Hi all!

Thank you all very much for your help! The camera was in AI Servo mode. I did not even think of checking that. All is working now.

Thanks

Good call... I didn't even think of that... I guess I'm just used to it...
