Default Canon Digital Rebel Focusing issue

Hi every one, I'm having an issue with locking my focus on my Digital Rebel when I'm taking shots. I will spot meter and focus on a subject and while still half pressing the shutter button reframe my shot and what happens is that the focus will reajust to where i point the camera to even though I dont want it to. I dont know how to turn this off and this has been anoying me for a while. Can you guys help...? Much apreciate it.

I havenít read my manual in a long time, but I think the continuous focus feature is supposed to only happen in the sports mode and maybe possibly in one of the more manual modes when the camera thinks the subject is moving and attempts to track it.

Does this happen to you in all modes?

If yes you may have to send the camera in for repair. Good Luck

What mode are you shooting in? Which focus sensors are you using (all or just one)?

Thank you guys for your reply, I'm shooting in "P" mode on the camera dial. Does this make a differance ...? I'm also metering with a single centre spot.



Thanks

The camera will kick into ai-servo in mode "p" if significant motion (either camera or subject is detected)

Try putting it in Manual Focus mode, or single focus.
