I just bought a canon xl1s off of ebay from a seller with great feedback. When I turn it on and look through the viewfinder it will focus and then out of nowhere not even 5 sec later blur horribly (a pulsating blur, in and out). Is this something that I set wrong on the camera or did this person drop the camera and now it is a mechanical problem???

I am no expert in this camera but it could be that the auto-focus is trying to latch onto something?

Put this query onto the Video/XL1 forum and you will get knowlegable, helpfull replies. . .
