More Canon 20d focusing issues

Hello,

Let me start off by saying I'm very new to photography. I bought the
20d to take to Europe in hopes of getting some large prints made. It's
my first D-SLR. Ever since I bought this camera I've had trouble
getting photos to come out well. I don't think I've really ever gotten
a photo in a 'mode' setting to come out clear. I always have soft
edges and overexposure. I tend to shoot mainly in manual mode, but
sometimes still have problems. My biggest issue is getting focused
clear images. If I'm just taking photos of friends around town, I
typically set the camera around 1/100th (in the time-priority mode) of
a second to keep from blurring the shot with my unstead hands.
Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn't. Recently I went to a
wedding and did this same thing, and almost every photo I took came out
blurry. Now I have taken some crisp shots, but they are almost always
from far away on nice sunny days. I like to go hiking and take the
camera, but the dark woods don't always make the greatest shots.

Here are two photos I took this morning on my couch. The data from the
shots follows. The first shot was in AE mode set. The second was in
fully automatic. Notice how soft the edges are on the fully automatic
shot. This is what keeps happening every time I take a photo. Does
anyone know what is going on, or care to suggest how to resolve this?

Here's a shot from the wedding that came terrible just to show you what
I'm so confused about.

Thanks for any insight, -Todd

I'm using a canon 28-105, seen here: (not L-glass)

I don't see a real problem with edge sharpness, rather I see that the
plane of focus is not on the same plane as the subject. In short the images
of the book are sharp where the distance from the lens to the cover is
within the DOF but since the cover is not exactly perpendicular to the axis
of the lens, the parts that are not sharp are further or closer than the
DOF. You need to try a smaller aperture.

Yea at the range you are shooting the book, at at f4 the DOF is ultra small.
Google: online depth of field calculator and play around with the values.
Not sure about the wedding one, check which AF point it used with your
software. Where focus is critical you could try justing use one AF point.

For the wedding shot, the focus was right in the center of the bride.
I'll have to go out this weekend and take some better shots to show
what is happening.

This looks like a simple problem of too-slow shutter speed. The streaks
in the upper-left of the image appears to be confetti or rice thrown by
someone out-of-frame. An 80th of a second just seems too slow for a
105mm lens handheld, especially considering you've got shutter speed
potential to trade off against a small aperture & mid-range ISO.

FWIW, try a minimum setting in either shutter- or aperture-priority
(depending on circumstances) and be mindful of the camera's selection
for the other setting. And maybe you should disable Safety Shift (custom
function #16) because it can override your selected Av or Tv.

One of the earlier posts was a similar problem with a Canon and I have had
exactly the same thing with my 350D and the stock 18-55 lense. The post was
titled: Canon Rebel XT and focussing

I use P mode mainly, and the guy who responded said that the default camera
process starts by selecting an aperture, and then a corresponding shutter
speed. This would certainly explain the problems I was having. I have
since used a tripod and noticed much clearer focus, so it seems logical.

Here's the text:

Well for the bride shot it could easily be motion blur. You are shooting at
35mm which is about the same as 56mm on a 35mm. Going with the rule of
1/over focal length says 1/80th should keep it sharp IF you were using good
technique at the time...if you were on the move trying to capture the moment
you might not have taken the time for a deep breath to get it sharp. I use
the same lens and its sharper then my 17-85 ef-s is usm most of the time.
Try it out for yourself though, set the camera to 1/80 and the same focal
length and do a shot of something while you are panning a little, I bet it
won't be razor sharp.

Actually, I think they look like bubbles..but I agree with your assesment of
the shutter speed issue.

Not a good combination. I would suggest letting the camera do more of
the work until you're more able to judge what settings to use.

The bridge image looks like it was taken on a bright, sunny day, so why
1/80th at f16? That's far too slow. Since she, and possibly you, were
presumably walking when you took this (note the groom's stance), you'd
have done better to open the aperture right up and go for a much faster
shutter.

The dress is blown out, but you could forgive yourself for that. Tricky
subject on a bright day. The rule is to expose for the highlights, since
you can always push up the shadows in post processing. There's no
information in that pure white area though. Switching to centre-weighted
averaging exposure metering might have helped - your use of evaluative
metering has ensured the whole scene is quite nicely exposed at the
expense of the important bit. Or at least turn the exposure compensation
down a bit.

Ironically, in the manual photos you've used f4, which would have been
ideal for the bride, but at 82mm you have a tiny depth of field - just a
few centmetres. Your manual photo shows that rather well, but since it
wasn't the effect you were after in this case, it's disappointing.

1/100th with unsteady hands? Try 1/500th. Better yet, take on one issue
at a time. Read up on depth of field and understand what happens when
you switch from f4 to f11. Then switch the camera to aperture priority
mode and leave it there. This will let the camera do the shutter speed
calculation.

Now pick an easy scenario - outside on a bright day. Keep away from
areas of shadow. It doesn't matter what you're shooting - the street,
your garbage cans, plants, whatever. When you're about to take a shot,
choose a suitable aperture for the subject, erring on the side of open
when in doubt (to keep the shutter fast). Bump up the ISO setting if
you're in a low light situation and the camera wants to use a shutter
below say 1/200th. Pay attention to holding the camera still and using
the shutter smoothly.

Above all, persist. DSLR newbies who can't get properly exposed, well
focused shots are very common. You just need to appreciate that it's not
as easy as you might have thought and that it's a skill that requires a
bit of effort and practise to learn.

Let me add a couple of items.

First the plane of focus is not usually really a plane. It is usually
curved and usually curves towards the camera from the center so if you were
photographing inside a sphere it would match the shape and you could have it
focused edge to edge with most lenses.

Second most good macro lenses (not lenses with a macro mode) have very
flat fields of focus.

BTW I agree with the suggestion to allow the camera to take over more of
the work. I also have a 20D and it does a good job. This comes from a guy
who learned photography in the 50's using all manual cameras. There is a lot
to lean about your new camera. Keep using it a lot and you will lean a lot
of great stuff.

As for the wedding, they are tough and even back in the 50's a powerful
flash was part of the standard tools for weddings. The built-in flash on
the 20d is not very powerful and available darkness is usually not
sufficient to easily get a well exposed subject with sufficient shutter
speed to stop motion and small enough aperture to have enough DOF. Even
moving up the light sensitivity will not take care of it all. Here lots of
