Re: Shooting Question
Not sure of the vagarities of Canon DSLRs as I have a selection of Nikons, but I wonder if the "mirror up" mode is engaged so that first press just lifts the mirror, second press fires the shutter. This mode may be disabled in full auto, hence you don't get the problem then.

A DSLR with kit lens will not focus on subjects as close to it as a "point & shoot" compact camera, so possibly you cannot get focus on some shots because the subject is too close
