Handling Precautions

Camera Care

This camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physical shock.

The camera is not waterproof and cannot be used underwater. If you accidentally drop the camera into water, promptly consult your nearest Canon Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry cloth. If the camera has been exposed to salty air, wipe it with a well-wrungwet cloth. Never leave the camera near anything having a strong magnetic field such as a magnet or electric motor. Also avoid using or leaving the camera near anything emitting strong radio waves such as a large antenna. Strong magnetic fields can cause camera misoperation or destroy image data.

Do not leave the camera in excessive heat such as in a car in direct sunlight. High temperatures can cause the camera to malfunction.

The camera contains precision electronic circuitry. Never attempt to disassemble the camera yourself.

Use a blowerCOPYto blow away dust on the lens, viewfinder, reflex mirror, and focusing screen. Do not use cleaners that contain organic solvents to clean the camera body or lens. For stubborn dirt, take the camera to the nearest Canon Service Center.

Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your fingers. This is to prevent the contacts from corroding. Corroded contacts can cause camera misoperation.

If the camera is suddenly brought in from the cold into a warm room, condensation may form on the camera and internal parts. To prevent condensation, first put the camera in a sealed plastic bag and let it adjust to the warmer temperature before taking it out of the bag.

If condensation forms on the camera, do not use the camera. This is to avoid damaging the camera. If there is condensation, remove the lens, card and battery from the camera, and wait until the condensation has evaporated before using the camera.

If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery and store the camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilatedlocation. Even while the camera is in storage, press the shutter button a few times once in a while to check that the camera is still working.

Avoid storing the camera where there are corrosive chemicals such as a darkroom or chemical lab.

If the camera has not been used for an extended period, test all its functions before using it. If you have not used the camera for some time or if there is an important shoot coming up, have the camera checked by your Canon dealer or check the camera yourself and make sure it is working properly.

12

Handling Precautions

LCD Panel and LCD Monitor

Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision technology with over 99.99% effective pixels, there might be a few dead pixels among the remaining 0.01% or less pixels. Dead pixels displaying only black or red, etc., are not a malfunction. They do not affect the images recorded.

If the LCD monitor is left on for a prolonged period, screen burn-inmay occur where you see remnants of what was displayed. However, this is only temporary and will disappear when the camera is left unused for a few days. In low or high temperatures, the LCD monitor display may seem slow or it might look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.

Cards

To protect the card and its recorded data, note the following:

Do not drop, bend, or wet the card. Do not subject to excessive force, physical shock, and vibration.

Do not store or use the card near anything having a strong magnetic field such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to having static electricity.

Do not leave the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Store the card in a case.

Do not store the card in hot, dusty, or humid locations.

Lens Electrical ontacts

After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the lens

Contacts

caps or put down the lens with the rear end up to avoid

 

scratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.

Cautions During Prolonged Use

When you shoot continuously for a prolonged period or use Live View shooting for a long period, the camera may become hot. Although this is not a malfunction, holding the hot camera for a long period can cause slight skin burns.

Recharging the Battery

 

1

Remove the protective cover.

 

 

When you remove the battery from

 

 

the camera, be sure to reattach the

 

 

cover to protect it against short

 

 

circuiting.

 

2 Attach the battery.

 

 

Align the battery’s front edge with the

 

 

battery charger’s index line. While

 

 

pressing down the battery, slide it in

 

 

the direction of the arrow.

Recharging the Battery

Tips for Using the Battery and Charger

Recharge the battery on the day before or on the day it is to be used.

Even during non-useor storage, a charged battery will gradually discharge and lose its power.

After recharging the battery, detach it and unplug the power cord or prongs from the power outlet.

You can attach the cover in a different orientation to indicate whether the battery has been recharged or not.

If the battery has been recharged, attach the

cover so that the battery-shapedhole <

 

> is

 

aligned over the blue sticker on the battery. If the battery is

exhausted, attach the cover in the opposite orientation.

WhenCOPYnot using the camera, remove the battery.

If the battery is left in the camera for a prolonged period, a small amount of power current is released, resulting in excess discharge and shorter battery life. Store the battery with the protective cover attached. Storing the battery after it is fully charged can lower the battery’s performance.

The battery charger can also be used in foreign countries.

The battery charger is compatible with a 100 V AC to 240 V AC 50/60 Hz power source. If necessary, attach a commercially-availableplug adapter for the respective country or region. Do not attach any portable voltage transformer to the battery charger. Doing so can damage the battery charger.

If the battery becomes exhausted quickly even after being fully charged, the battery has worn out.

Purchase a new battery.

Do not recharge any battery pack other than Battery Pack BP-511A,BP514,BP-511,orBP-512.

Battery Pack BP-511Ais dedicated to Canon products only. Using it with an incompatible battery charger or product may result in malfunction or accidents for which Canon cannot be held liable.

25

Installing and Removing the Battery

Installing the Battery

Load a fully charged Battery Pack BP-511Ainto the camera.

1 Open the battery compartment cover.

Slide the lever as shown by the arrow and open the cover.

2 Insert the battery.

Insert the end with the battery

contacts.

COPYInsert the battery until it locks inplace.

3 Close the cover.

ress the cover until it snaps shut.

Battery Pack BP-514,BP-511,orBP-512can also be used.

Removing the Battery

Open the cover and remove the

battery.

Press the battery lock lever as shown

by the arrow and remove the battery.

To prevent short circuiting, be sure to attach the protective cover to the battery.

After opening the battery compartment cover, be careful not to swing it back further. Otherwise, the hinge might break.

26

Turning on the Power

<2> : The camera is turned off and does not operate. Set to this position when not using the camera.

<1> : The camera turns on. <J> : The camera and <5>

operate (p.37).

About the Automatic Self-CleaningSensor

Whenever you set the power switch to <1/J> or <2>, the sensor cleaning will be executed automatically. During the sensor cleaning, the LCD monitor will display <f>. Even during the sensorCOPYcleaning, you can still shoot by pressing the shutter button halfway (p.35) to stop the sensor cleaning and take a picture.

If you turn on/off the power switch <1/J>/<2> at a short interval, the <f> icon might not be displayed. This is normal and not a problem.

About Auto Power ff

To save battery power, the camera turns off automatically after about 1 minute of non-operation.To turn on the camera again, just press the shutter button halfway (p.35).

You can change the auto power-offtime with the menu’s [5Auto power off] setting (p.44).

If you set the power switch to <2> while an image is being recorded to the card, [Recording ...] will be displayed and the power will turn off after the card finishes recording the image.

27

Turning on the Power

Checking the Battery Level

When the power switch is set to <1> or <J>, the battery level will be indicated in one of four levels:

z : Battery level is OK.

x : Battery level is slightly down,

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but adequate power remains.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

b: Battery will be exhausted

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

n: Battery must be recharged.

The figures above are based on a fully-chargedBattery ackBP-511A,no Live View shooting, and IPA ( amera & Imaging Products Association) testing standards.

The actual number of shots may be fewer than indicated above depending on the shooting conditions.

Pressing the shutter button halfway for long periods or operating only the autofocus can also reduce the number of possible shots.

The number of possible shots will decrease with more frequent use of the LCD monitor.

The number of possible shots with the BP-514is the same as indicated in the table.

The number of possible shots with the BP-511orBP-512will be about 75% of the figures in the table for 23°C / 73°F. At 0°C / 32°F, the figures will be about the same as in the table.

The lens operation is powered by the camera’s battery. Using certain lenses can reduce the number of possible shots.

Using the Image Stabilizer of the lens will decrease the number of possible shots (shorter battery life).

For battery life with Live View shooting, see page 119.

The access lamp lights or blinks while the picture is taken, when data is being transferred to the card and when data is being recorded, read, or erased on the card. While the access lamp is lit or blinking, never do any of the following. Doing so may damage the image data. It may also damage the card or camera.

• Opening the card slot cover.

• Removing the battery.

• Shaking or banging the camera around.

If the card already contains recorded images, the image number might not start from 0001 (p.80).

If a card-relatederror message is displayed on the LCD monitor, remove and reinstall the card. If the error persists, use a different card.

If you can transfer all the images in the card to a personal computer, transfer all the images and then format the card. The card may then return to normal.

When holding a hard disk-typecard, always hold its sides. You may damage the card by holding its flat surfaces. Compared to CF cards, harddisk-typecards are more vulnerable to vibration and physical shock. If you use such a card, be careful not to subject the camera to vibration or physical shock especially while recording or displaying images.

About Zooming

To zoom, turn the zoom ring on the lens

with your fingers.

If you want to zoom, do it before

focusing. Turning the zoom ring after

achieving focus may throw off the focus slightly.

Detaching the Lens

While pressing the lens release

button, turn the lens as shown by

the arrow.

COPYTurn the lens until it stops, then

detach it.

Attach the dust cap to the detached lens.

To owners of the EF-S18-200mmf/3.5-5.6IS kit lens:

You can prevent the zoom ring from extending out while you are carrying it

around. Set the zoom ring to the 18mm

wide-angleend, then slide the zoom ring lock lever to <LOCK>. The zoom ring can be locked only at thewide-angleend.

Do not look at the sun directly through any lens. Doing so may cause loss of vision.

If the front part (focusing ring) of the lens rotates during autofocusing, do not touch the rotating part.

Image Conversion Factor

Since the image sensor size is smaller than the 35mm film format, it will look like the lens focal length is increased by 1.6x.

About the Lens Image Stabilizer

The procedure explained here is based on the EF-S17-85mmf/4-5.6IS USM lens as an example.

* IS stands for Image Stabilizer.

1

2

Set the IS switch to <1>.

Set the camera’s power switch to <1>.

Press the shutter button halfway.

X The Image Stabilizer will operate.

3 Take the picture.

COPYWhen the picture looks steady in the viewfinder, press the shutter button completely to take the picture.

The Image Stabilizer is not effective for moving subjects.

The Image Stabilizer may not be effective for excessive shaking such as on a rocking boat.

With the EF-S17-85mmf/4-5.6IS USM orEF28-135mmf/3.5-5.6IS USM lens, the Image Stabilizer will not be very effective while you move the camera to take panned shots.

The Image Stabilizer can operate with the focus mode switch set to either <AF> or <MF>.

If the camera is mounted on a tripod, you can save battery power by switching the IS switch to <2>.

The Image Stabilizer can operate even when the camera is mounted on a monopod.

Some IS lenses enable you to switch the IS mode manually to suit the shooting conditions. However, the EF-S18-200mmf/3.5-5.6IS and EF-S18-55mmf/3.5-5.6IS lenses switch the IS mode automatically.

33

Basic Operation

Adjusting the Viewfinder Clarity

Turn the dioptric adjustment knob.

Turn the knob left or right so that the nine AF points in the viewfinder look sharp.

If the camera’s dioptric adjustment still cannot provide a sharp viewfinder image, using Dioptric Adjustment Lens E (10 types, sold separately) is recommended.

Holding the Camera

FAQ

The focus confirmation light <o> blinks and focus is not achieved.

Aim the AF point over an area having good contrast between light and dark, then press the shutter button halfway (p.88). If you are too close to the subject, move away and try again.

Sometimes multiple AF points flash simultaneously.

This indicates that focus has been achieved at all those AF points. As long as the AF point covering the desired subject flashes, you can take the picture.

The beeper continues to beep softly. (The focus confirmation light <o> also does not light.)

It indicates that the camera is focusing continuously on a moving subject. (The focus confirmationCOPYlight <o> does not light.) While the beeper is beeping, you can press the shutter button completely to shoot a moving subject in focus.

Pressing the shutter button halfway does not focus the subject.

When the focus mode switch on the lens is set to <MF> (Manual Focus), the camera does not focus. Set the focus mode switch to <AF> (Auto Focus).

Although it is daylight, the flash popped up.

For a backlit subject, the flash may pop up to help reduce harsh shadows on the subject.

In low light, the built-inflash fired a series of flashes.

To assist the autofocusing, pressing the shutter button halfway may trigger the built-inflash to fire a series of flashes. This is calledAF-assistbeam. It is effective up to approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet away.

Although flash was used, the picture came out dark.

The subject was too far away. The subject should be within 5 meters/16.4 feet from the camera.

When flash was used, the bottom part of the picture came out unnaturally dark.

The subject was too close to the camera, and a shadow was created by the lens. The subject should be at least 1 meter/3.3 feet away from the camera. If a hood has been attached to the lens, remove it before taking the flash picture.

49

1Full Auto Techniques

Recomposing the Shot

Depending on the scene, position the subject toward the left or right to create a balanced background and good perspective.

In the <1>COPY(Full Auto) mode, while you press the shutter button halfway to focus a still subject, the focus will be locked. ou can then recompose the shot and press the shutter button completely to take the picture. This is called “focus lock”. Focus lock is also possible in other Basic Zone modes (except <5> Sports).

Shooting a Moving Subject

In the <1> (Full Auto) mode, if the subject moves (distance to camera changes) during or after you focus, AI Servo AF will take effect to focus the subject continuously. As long as you keep aiming the AF point on the subject while pressing the shutter button halfway, the focusing will be continuous. When you want to take the picture, press the shutter button completely.

50

2Shooting Portraits

The <2> (Portrait) mode blurs the background to make the human subject stand out. It also makes flesh tones and the hair look softer than with the <1> (Full Auto) mode.

ShootingCOPYTips

The farther the distance between the subject and background, the better.

The further the distance between the subject and background, the more blurred the background will look. The subject will also stand out better in front of a plain, dark background.

Use a telephoto lens.

If you have a zoom lens, use the telephoto end to fill the frame with the subject from the waist up. Move in closer if necessary.

Focus the face.

Check that the AF point covering the face flashes in red.

If you hold down the shutter button, you can shoot continuously to obtain different poses and facial expressions. (max. approx. 3 shots/sec.)

If necessary, the built-inflash willpop-upautomatically.

51

3Shooting Landscapes

Use the <3> (Landscape) mode for wide scenery, night scenes, or to have everything in focus from near to far. The greens and blues also become more vivid and sharper than with <1> (Full Auto).

ShootingCOPYTips

With a zoom lens, use the wide-angleend.

When using the wide-angleend of a zoom lens, objects near and far will be in focus better than at the telephoto end. It also adds breadth to landscapes.

Shooting night scenes.

Since the built-inflash will be disabled, this mode is also good for night scenes. Use a tripod to prevent camera shake. If you want to photograph a person against a night scene, set the Mode Dial to <6> (Night Portrait) and use a tripod (p.55).

52

4Shooting Close-ups

When you want to photograph flowers or small things up close, use the <4>(Close-up)mode. To make small things appear much larger, use a macro lens (sold separately).

ShootingCOPYTips

Use a simple background.

A simple background makes the flower, etc., stand out better.

Move to the subject as close as possible.

Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. Some lenses have indications such as <40.28m/0.9ft>. The lens minimum focusing distance is measured from the <V> (focal plane) mark on the camera to the subject. If you are too close to the subject, the focus confirmation light <o> will blink.

Under low light, the built-inflash will fire. If you are too close to the subject and the bottom of the picture looks dark, move away from the subject.

With a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.

If you have a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the subject look larger.

53

5Shooting Moving Subjects

To photograph a moving subject, whether it is a child running or a moving vehicle, use the <5> (Sports) mode.

ShootingCOPYTips

Use a telephoto lens.

Using a telephoto lens is recommended so you can shoot from afar.

Use the center AF point to focus.

Aim the center AF point over the subject, then press the shutter button halfway to auto focus. During autofocusing, the beeper will continue beeping softly. If focus cannot be achieved, the focus confirmation light <o> will blink.

When you want to take the picture, press the shutter button completely. If you hold down the shutter button, continuous shooting (max. approx. 6.3 shots per sec.) and autofocusing will take effect.

6Shooting Portraits at Night

To shoot someone at night and obtain a natural-lookingexposure in the background, use the <6> (Night Portrait) mode.

ShootingCOPYTips

Use a wide-anglelens and a tripod.

When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angleend to obtain a wide night view. Also, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.

Keep the person within 5 meters/16.4 feet from the camera.

Under low light, the built-inflash will fire automatically to obtain a good exposure of the person. The effective distance of thebuilt-inflash is 5 meters/16.4 feet from the camera.

Shoot also with <1> (Full Auto).

Since camera shake is prone to occur with night shots, shooting also with <1> (Full Auto) is recommended.

Tell the subject to keep still even after the flash fires.

If the self-timeris also used, theself-timerlamp will flash after the picture is taken.

55

7Disabling Flash

In places where flash photography is prohibited, use the <7> (Flash Off) mode. This mode is also effective for candlelight scenes when you want to capture the ambient light.

ShootingCOPYTips

If the numeric display in the viewfinder blinks, take care to prevent camera shake.

Under low light when camera shake is prone to occur, the viewfinder’s shutter speed display will blink. Hold the camera steady or use a tripod. When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angleend to reduce blur caused by camera shake.

Taking portraits without flash.

Under low light, the person must not move until the picture is taken. If the person moves during the exposure, he or she might look blurred in the picture.

Figures for the file size, possible shots, and maximum burst during continuous shooting are based on anon’s testing standards (ISO 100 and Standard Picture Style) using a 2GB card. These figures will vary depending on the subject, card brand, ISO speed, Picture Style, Custom Functions, etc.

The maximum burst applies to high-speedcontinuous shooting. Figures in parentheses apply to an Ultra DMA (UDMA) 2GB card based on Canon’s testing standards.

If you select both RAW and JPEG, the same image will be captured in both types at the selected image-recordingquality. The two images will be saved in the same folder with the same file numbers (file extension JPG for JPEG and CR2 for RAW).

When D1 or D2 is selected, the LCD panel will display D. The icons are read as follows: 1(RAW), D1 (Small RAW1), D2 (Small RAW2), 7(Fine), 8(Normal), 3(Large), 4(Medium), and 6(Small).

3Setting the Image-recordingQuality

About RAW

The RAW image is the data output by the image sensor and converted to digital data which is recorded on the card as is. You can select it from among 1,D1, orD2. “RAW” written in the text will refer to all three RAW settings:1,D1, andD2.

With RAW images, you can use the provided software to make various adjustments as needed. From the RAW image, the software can develop and produce the adjusted image in the desired type such as JPEG or TIFF.

About [8C.Fn II-2:High ISO speed noise reduction] and RAW or RAW+JPEG images

Although [COPY8 .Fn II-2:High ISO speed noise reduction] (p.176) settings (Standard/Low/Strong/Disable) are applied to the recorded images, the images without noise reduction applied are used during image playback (on the LCD monitor and on a TV screen) or direct printing. (Noise may appear in the images.)

Confirm the noise reduction effects or print noise-reducedimages with Digital Photo Professional (provided software).

Commercial software might not be able to display RAW images. Using the provided software is recommended.

Maximum Burst During Continuous Shooting

The maximum burst during continuous shooting indicated on the preceding page is the number of continuous shots that can be taken without stopping, based on a formatted 2GB card.

The number is displayed in the viewfinder on the bottom right. If the maximum burst is 99 or higher, “99” will be displayed.

62

3Setting the Image-recordingQuality

The maximum burst is displayed even when a card is not in the camera. Make sure that a card is loaded before taking a picture.

The maximum burst for <o> is displayed regardless of the drive mode setting.

If [8C.Fn II-2:High ISO speed noise reduction] is set to [2: Strong], the maximum burst will be reduced (p.176).

If the viewfinder displays “99” for the maximum burst, it means the maximum burst is 99 or higher. If 98 or lower is displayed, the maximum burst is 98 or lower. If you stop the continuous shooting, the maximum burst will increase. After all the captured images are written to the card, the maximum burst will be as listed on page 61.

About White Balance

To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of lighting. With a digital camera, the color temperature is adjusted with software to make the white areas look white. This adjustment serves as the basis for the color correction. The result is natural-lookingcolors in the pictures.

You can also use the [2White balance] menu to set the white balance.

71

If the exposure obtained in step 1 is way off, a correct white balance might not be obtained.

If the image was captured while the Picture Style was set to [Monochrome] (p.66), it cannot be selected in step 3.

Instead of a white object, an 18% gray card (commercially available) can produce a more accurate white balance.

The personal white balance registered with the provided software will be registered under <O>. If you do step 3, the data for the registered personal white balance will be erased.

PSetting the Color Temperature

You can setCOPYthe white balance’s color temperature numerically in Kelvin. This is for advanced users.

Bracketing Sequence

The images will be bracketed in the following sequence: 1. Standard white balance, 2. Blue (B) bias, and 3. Amber (A) bias, or 1. Standard white balance, 2. Magenta (M) bias, 3. Green (G) bias.

During WB bracketing, the maximum burst for continuous shooting will be lower and the number of possible shots will also decrease to one-thirdthe normal number. Also, the white balance icon will blink on the LCD panel.

You can also set white balance correction and AEB together with white balance bracketing. If you set AEB in combination with white balance bracketing, a total of nine images will be recorded for a single shot. Since three images are recorded for one shot, the card will take longer to record the shot.

BKT” stands for Bracketing.

3Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction

Due to the lens characteristics, the four corners of the picture might look darker. This is called lens light fall-offor drops in peripheral illumination. This can be corrected. For JPEG images, lens lightfall-offis corrected when the image is captured. For RAW images, it can be corrected with Digital Photo Professional (provided software).

1Select [Peripheral illumin. correct.].

Under the [1] tab, select [Peripheral illumin. correct.], then press <0>.

2 Check the screen.

COPYOn the screen, check that the attached lens’ “Correction data available” is displayed.

If “Correction data not available” is displayed, see “About the Lens Correction Data” on the next page. Turn the <5> dial to select [Enable], then press <0>.

3Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction

About the Lens Correction Data

The camera already contains lens peripheral light correction data for about 20 lenses. In step 2, if you select [Enable], the peripheral light correction will be applied automatically for any lens whose correction data has been registered in the camera.

With the EOS Utility (provided software), you can check which lenses have their correction data registered in the camera. You can also register the correction data for unregistered lenses. For details, see the Software Instruction Manual (CD-ROM)for EOS Utility.

ForCOPYJPEG images already captured, lens peripheral light correction cannot be applied.

Depending on shooting conditions, noise might appear on the image periphery.

When using a third-partylens setting the correction to [Disable] is recommended, even if [Correction data available] is displayed.

Lens peripheral light correction is applied even when an Extender is attached.

If the correction data for the attached lens has not been registered to the camera, the result will be the same as when the correction is set to [Disable].

The correction amount applied will be slightly lower than the maximum correction amount settable with Digital Photo Professional (provided software).

If the lens does not have distance information, the correction amount will be lower.

The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.

The correction might not be noticeable with lenses whose peripheral light fall-offis minimal.

With the Select folder screen displayed, turn the <5> dial to select the desired folder, then press <0>.

XThe folder where the captured images will be saved will be selected. Subsequent captured images will be recorded into the selected folder.

About FoldersCOPY

As with “100 ANON” for example, the folder name starts with three digits (folder number) followed by five alphanumeric characters. A folder can contain up to 9999 images (file No. 0001 - 9999). When a folder becomes full, a new folder with a higherone-upfolder number is created automatically. Also, if manual reset (p.81) is executed, a new folder will be created automatically. Folders numbered from 100 to 999 can be created.

Creating Folders with a Personal Computer

With the card open on the screen, create a new folder named “DCIM”. Open the DCIM folder and create as many folders as necessary to save and organize your images. The folder name must follow the “100ABC_D” format where the first three digits is 100 - 999 followed by five alphanumeric characters. The five characters can be a combination of upperorlower-caseletters from A to Z, numerals, and an underscore “_”. There can be no space in the folder name. Also, folder names cannot have the samethree-digitnumber such as “100ABC_D” and “100W_XYZ” even if the letters are different.

79

3File Numbering Methods

The file number is like the frame number on a roll of film. The captured images are assigned a sequential file number from 0001 to 9999 and saved in one folder. You can change how the file number is assigned. The file number will appear on a personal computer in this format:

IMG_0001.JPG.

1 Select [File numbering].

Under the [5] tab, select [File numbering], then press <0>.

2 Select the file numbering method.

Turn the <5> dial to select the desired method, then press <0>.

ContinuousCOPY

Continues the file numbering sequence even after the card is replaced or a new folder is created.

Even after you replace the card or create a new folder, the file numbering continues in sequence up to 9999. This is convenient when you want to save the images numbered anywhere between 0001 to 9999 in multiple cards or folders into one folder in your personal computer.

If the replacement card or existing folder already contains images recorded previously, the file numbering of the new images might continue from the file numbering of the existing images in the card or folder. If you want to use continuous file numbering, you should use a newly-formattedcard each time.

The file numbering restarts from 0001 each time the card is replaced or a new folder is created.

Whenever the card is replaced or a new folder created, the file numbering starts from 0001. This is convenient if you want to organize images according to cards or folders. If the replacement card or existing folder already contains images recorded previously, the file numbering of the new images might continue from the file numbering of the existing images in the card or folder. If you want to save images with the file numbering starting from 0001, use a newly formatted card each time.

ManualCOPYReset

To reset the file numbering to 0001 or to start from file number 0001 in a new folder

When you reset the file numbering manually, a new folder is created automatically and the file numbering of images saved to that folder starts from 0001. This is convenient when you want to use different folders for the images taken yesterday and the ones taken today, for example. After the manual reset, the file numbering returns to continuous or auto reset.

If folder No. 999 is created, [Folder number full] will appear on the LCD monitor. If that folder contains images reaching file number 9999, shooting will not be possible even if the card still has storage capacity. The LCD monitor will display a message to replace the card. Replace with a new card.

For both JPEG and RAW images, the file name will start with “IMG_”. The extension will be “.JPG” for JPEG images and “.CR2” for RAW images.

81

3Setting the Color SpaceN

The color space refers to the range of reproducible colors. With this camera, you can set the color space for captured images to sRGB or Adobe RGB. For normal shooting, sRGB is recommended.

In the Basic Zone modes, sRGB is set automatically.

1 Select [Color space].

Under the [2] tab, select [Color space], then press <0>.

2 Set the desired color space.

Select [sRGB] or [Adobe RGB], then press <0>.

About AdobeCOPYRGB

This color space is mainly used for commercial printing and other industrial uses. This setting is not recommended if you do not know about image processing, Adobe RGB, and Design rule for Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21). The image will look very subdued in the sRGB personal computer environment and with printers not compatible with Design rule for amera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21). Post-processingof the image with software will therefore be required.

If the image is captured with the color space set to Adobe RGB, the file name will start with “_MG_” (first character is an underscore).

The ICC profile is not appended. The ICC profile is explained in the Software Instruction Manual in the CD-ROM.

Setting the AF and

Drive Modes

COPYThe viewfinder has 9 AF points. By selecting a suitable AF point, you

can shoot with autofocus while framing the subject as desired.

You can also select the AF mode and drive mode best matching the shooting conditions and subject.

The Micon on the right of the page title indicates that the respective feature is available only in the Creative Zone modes (d,s,f,a,8).

In the Basic Zone modes, the AF mode, AF point selection, and drive mode are set automatically.

<AF> stands for auto focus. <MF> stands for manual focus.

83

f: Selecting the AF ModeN

Z: AI Servo AF

One-ShotAF for Still Subjects

Suited for still subjects. When you press the shutter button halfway, the camera will focus only once.

When focus is achieved, the AF point which achieved focus will flash in red, and the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will also light.

With evaluative metering, the exposure setting will be set at the same time focus is achieved.

While you hold down the shutter button halfway, the focus will be locked. You can then recompose the shot if desired.

In the Creative Zone modes, AF is also possible by pressing the <p> button.

84

f: Selecting the AF ModeN

If focus cannot be achieved, the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will blink. If this occurs, a picture cannot be taken even if the shutter button is pressed completely. Recompose the picture and try to focus again. Or see “When Autofocus Fails” (p.88).

If the [1Beep] menu is set to [Off], the beeper will not sound when focus is achieved.

AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects

This AF mode is for moving subjects when the focusing distance keeps changing. While you hold down the shutter button halfway, the subject will be focused continuously.

The exposure is set at the moment the picture is taken.

In theCOPYCreative Zone modes, AF is also possible by pressing the <p> button.

When the AF point selection is automatic (p.86), the camera first uses the center AF point to focus. During autofocusing, if the subject moves away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long as the subject is covered by another AF point.

With AI Servo AF, the beeper will not sound even when focus is achieved. Also, the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will not light.

AI Focus AF for Automatic Switching of AF Mode

AI Focus AF switches the AF mode from One-ShotAF to AI Servo AF automatically if the still subject starts moving.

After the subject is focused in the One-ShotAF mode, if the subject starts moving, the camera will detect the movement and change the AF mode automatically to AI Servo AF.

When focus is achieved in the AI Focus AF mode with the Servo mode active, the beeper will sound softly. However, the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will not light.

Lens’ Maximum Aperture and AF Sensitivity

With lenses whose maximum aperture is larger than f/5.6

With all AF points, cross-typeAF sensitive to both vertical and horizontal lines is possible.

With lenses whose maximum aperture is larger than f/2.8*

With the center AF point, high-precision,cross-typeAF sensitive to both vertical and horizontal lines is possible. The center AF point’s sensitivity to vertical and horizontal lines is about twice as sensitive as the other AF points.

The remaining eight AF points will work as cross-typepoints with lenses brighter than f/5.6.

* Except with the EF28-80mmf/2.8-4LUSM and EF50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro lenses.

87

When Autofocus Fails

Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the focus confirmation light <o> blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:

Subjects difficult to focus

Low-contrastsubjects

(Example: Blue sky, solid-colorwalls, etc.) Subjects in low light

Extremely backlit or reflective subjects (Example: Car with a reflective body, etc.) Near and far subjects covered by an AF point (Example: Animal in a cage, etc.)

Repetitive patterns

(Example: Skyscraper windows, computer keyboards, etc.)

Bulb Exposures

Using the Eyepiece Cover

If you take a picture without looking at the viewfinder, light entering the eyepiece can throw off the exposure. To prevent this, use the eyepiece cover (p.23) attached to the camera strap.

1

Remove the eyecup.

 

Push the bottom of the eyecup

 

upward.

2 Attaching the eyepiece cover.

COPY

 

Slide the eyepiece cover down into

the eyepiece groove to attach it.

Connecting the Remote Switch

You can connect the Remote Switch RS-80N3or Timer Remote ControllerTC-80N3(both sold separately) or any EOS accessory equipped with anN3-typeterminal to the camera and shoot with it. To operate the accessory, refer to its instruction manual.

1 Open the terminal cover.

2Connect the plug to the remote control terminal.

Connect the plug as shown in the illustration.

To disconnect the plug, grasp the plug’s silver part and pull out.

105

Mirror LockupN

Although using the self-timeror Remote Switch can prevent camera shake, using mirror lockup to prevent camera vibrations can also help when you use a super telephoto lens or shoot close ups.

When [8C.Fn III -6:Mirror lockup] is set to [1: Enable](p.180), shooting with mirror lockup will be possible.

1Focus the subject, press the shutter button completely and release it.

X The mirror will swing up.

2Press the shutter button completely again.

X The picture is taken and the mirror goes back down.

In veryCOPYbright light such as at the beach or ski slope on a sunny day, take the picture promptly after mirror lockup.

Do not point the camera toward the sun. The sun’s heat can scorch and damage the shutter curtains.

If you use bulb exposures, the self-timer,and mirror lockup in combination, keep pressing the shutter button completely(self-timerdelay time + bulb exposure time). If you let go of the shutter button during the10-sec./2-sec.self-timercountdown, there will be a shutterrelease sound. This is not the actual shutter release (no picture is taken).

When [1: Enable] is set, single shooting will take effect even if the drive mode is set to continuous.

When the self-timeris set to <j> or <l>, the picture will be taken after 10 sec. or 2 sec. respectively.

The mirror locks up, and after 30 seconds, it will go back down automatically. Pressing the shutter button completely again locks up the mirror again.

For mirror lockup shots, using the Remote Switch RS-80N3or Timer Remote ControllerTC-80N3(both sold separately) is recommended.

For close subjects, the subject should be at least 1 meter/3.3 feet away when using flash.

Detach the lens hood and keep at least 1 meter/3.3 feet away from the subject. If the lens has a hood attached or you are too close to the subject, the bottom of the picture might look dark due to the obstructed flash. If you use a telephoto lens or a fast lens and the flash is still partially obstructed, use an EX-seriesSpeedlite (sold separately).

3UsingCOPYRed-eyeReduction

Using the red-eyereduction lamp before taking a flash picture can reduce red eye.Red-eyereduction will work in any shooting mode except <3> <7> <5>.

Under the [1] tab, select[Red-eye On/Off], then press <0>. Select [On], then press <0>.

For flash photography, when you press the shutter button halfway, the red-eyereduction lamp will light. Then when you press the shutter button completely, the picture will be taken.

The red-eyereduction feature is most effective when the subject looks at thered-eyereduction lamp, when the room is well lit, or when you go closer to the subject.

When you press the shutter button halfway, the viewfinder display on the bottom will gradually turn off. For best results, take the picture after this display turns off.

The effectiveness of red-eyereduction varies depending on the subject.

External Speedlites

EOS-dedicated,EX-seriesSpeedlites

Basically operates like a built-inflash for easy operation.

When an EX-seriesSpeedlite is attached to the camera, almost all the autoflash control is done by the camera. In other words, it is like a highoutput flash attached externally in place of thebuilt-inflash.

For detailed instructions, see the EX-seriesSpeedlite’s instruction manual. This camera is aType-Acamera that can use all the features ofEX-seriesSpeedlites.

Shoe-COPYmountSpeedlites Macro Lites

With an EX-seriesSpeedlite not controllable by the camera, only [Flash exp. comp] and[E-TTL II] can be settable for [External flash func. setting] (p.111).

(For some EX-seriesSpeedlites, [Shutter sync.] can also be settable.) When the flash metering mode is set to TTL autoflash with the flash’s

ustom Function, the flash will fire at full output only.

Canon Speedlites other than the EX-series

With an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-seriesSpeedlite set in the TTL orA-TTLautoflash mode, the flash can be fired at full output only.Set the camera’s shooting mode to <a> (manual exposure) or <f> (aperture-priority AE) and adjust the aperture setting before shooting.

When using a Speedlite which has manual flash mode, shoot in the manual flash mode.

113

External Speedlites

Using Non-CanonFlash Units

Sync Speed

The camera can synchronize with non-Canoncompact flash units at 1/250 sec. and slower speeds. With large studio flash units, since the flash duration is longer, set the sync speed within 1/60 sec. to 1/30 sec. Be sure to test the flash synchronization before shooting.

PC Terminal

The camera’s PC terminal can be

used with flash units having a sync

cord. The PC terminal is threaded to prevent inadvertent disconnection.

COPYThe camera’s PC terminal has no polarity. You can connect any sync

cord regardless of its polarity.

Cautions for Live View shooting

When using a non-Canonflash unit for Live View shooting, set the [6

Live View function settings] menu’s [Silent shoot.] to [Disable]. The flash will not fire if it is set to [Mode 1] or [Mode 2].

If the camera is used with a flash unit or flash accessory dedicated to another camera brand, the camera may not operate properly and malfunction may result.

Do not connect to the camera’s PC terminal any flash unit requiring 250 V or more.

Do not attach a high-voltageflash unit on the camera’s hot shoe. It might not fire.

A flash unit attached to the camera’s hot shoe and a flash unit connected to the PC terminal can both be used at the same time.

Live View Shooting

You canCOPYshoot while viewing the picture on the camera’s LCD monitor. This is called “Live View shooting.”

Live View shooting is effective for still subjects which do not move.

If you handhold the camera and shoot while viewing the LCD monitor, camera shake can cause blurred images. Using a tripod is recommended.

About Remote Live View Shooting

With EOS Utility (provided software) installed in your personal computer, you can connect the camera to the personal computer and shoot remotely while viewing the computer screen instead of the camera’s viewfinder. For details, see the Software Instruction Manual in the CD-ROM.

About theCOPY<E> icon

If Live View shooting is done under direct sunlight or other high-temperatureenvironments, the <E> icon (warning for the camera’s high internal temperature) may appear on the screen. If Live View shooting continues with a high internal temperature, it may degrade image quality. You should therefore stop Live View shooting if the warning icon appears.

If you use a hard disk-typecard and Live View shooting continues while the <E> warning icon is displayed, the camera’s internal temperature will further increase and the Live View shooting will stop automatically. Live View

shooting will be disabled until the camera’s internal temperature decreases.

The histogram and <g> icon are displayed when [Exposure simulation] has been set to [Enable] (p.117). If <g> is blinking, it indicates that the Live View image is not being displayed at the suitable brightness due to low or bright light conditions. However, the captured image will reflect the exposure setting.

If flash is used or bulb is set, the <g> icon and histogram will be grayed out (for your reference). The histogram might not be properly displayed in low light or bright light conditions.

Using AF to FocusN

Shooting conditions which can make focusing difficult:

Low-contrastsubjects such as the blue sky andsolid-colorsurfaces. Subjects in low light.

Stripes and other patterns where there is contrast only in the horizontal direction.

Under a light source whose brightness, color, or pattern keeps changing.

Night scenes or points of light.

Under fluorescent lighting or when the image flickers. Extremely small subjects.

Subjects strongly reflecting light.

The AF point covers both a near and faraway subject (such as an animal in a cage).

Subjects COPYwhich keep moving within the AF point and cannot keep still due to camera shake or subject blur.

A subject approaching or moving away from the camera. Autofocusing while the subject is way out of focus.

Soft focus effect is applied with a soft focus lens. A special effects filter is used.

Silent ShootingN

Instructions for setting the [6Live View function settings] menu’s [Silent shoot.] are explained below.

Mode 1

The shooting operation noise is quieter than the normal shooting. Continuous shooting is also possible. High-speedcontinuous shooting will be approx. 5.8 fps.

Mode 2

COPY

When you press the shutter button completely, only one shot will be taken. While you keep holding down the shutter button, the camera operation will be suspended. Then when you return to the shutter button’s halfway position, the camera operation will resume and the shooting sound will occur only then. By delaying the shooting sound, the disturbance can be minimized. Even if continuous shooting is set, only a single shot can be taken in this mode.

Disable

If you use a TS-Elens to makevertical shift movements or use an Extension Tube, be sure to set this to [Disable]. Setting it to [Mode 1] or [Mode 2] will result in incorrect or irregular exposures.

When you press the shutter button completely, the shutter will sound like it took two shots. However, only one shot will be taken.

If you use flash, the [Disable] operation will take effect even if you had set it to [Mode 1] or [Mode 2].

When using a non-Canonflash unit, set it to [Disable]. (The flash will not fire if [Mode 1] or [Mode 2] is set.)

128

Notes about the Live View image

Under low light or bright light conditions, the Live View image might not reflect the brightness of the captured image.

If the light source within the image changes, the screen might flicker. If this happens, stop and resume the Live View shooting under the actual light source to be used.

If you point the camera in a different direction, it might throw off the Live View image’s correct brightness momentarily. Wait until the brightness level stabilizes before shooting.

If there is a very bright light source in the picture, such as the sun, the bright area might appear black on the LCD monitor. However, the actual captured image will correctly show the bright area.

In low light, if you set the [6LCD brightness] to a bright setting, chrominance noise may appear in the Live View image. However, the chrominanceCOPYnoise will not be recorded in the captured image. When you magnify the image, the image sharpness may look more pronounced than it really is.

Notes about the shooting results

When you use Live View shooting for a long period, the camera’s internal temperature may increase and it can degrade image quality. Terminate Live View shooting when not shooting images. Before taking a long exposure, stop Live View shooting temporarily and wait several minutes before shooting.

High temperatures, high ISO speeds, or long exposures may cause noise or irregular colors in the image captured with Live View shooting. If you take the picture while the image is magnified, the exposure might not come out as desired. Return to the normal view before taking the picture. During the magnified view, the shutter speed and aperture will be displayed in red.

Even if you take the picture during magnified view, the captured image will show the normal view.

129

Notes about Custom Functions

Live View shooting will disable some Custom Function settings (p.173). If [8C.Fn II -4: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.177) is not set to [3: Disable], the image will look bright even if a decreased exposure compensation has been set.

Notes about lenses and flash

The focus preset feature on super telephoto lenses cannot be used. FE lock is not possible when the built-inflash or external Speedlite is used. Modeling flash is not possible when external Speedlite is used.

About the Histogram

The brightness histogram display shows the exposure level distribution and overall brightness. And the RGB histogram display is for checking the color saturation and gradation. The display can be switched with the [4Histogram] menu.

[Brightness] Display

Sample Histograms

This histogram is a graph showing the

 

distribution of the image’s brightness level. The

 

horizontal axis indicates the brightness level

Dark image

(darker on the left and brighter on the right),

while the vertical axis indicates how many

 

pixels exist for each brightness level. The more

 

pixels there are toward the left, the darker the

Normal brightness

image. And the more pixels there are toward the

 

right, the brighter the image. If there are too

 

many pixels on the left, the shadow detail will be

Bright image

lost. And if there are too many pixels on the

COPY

right, the highlight detail will be lost. The

gradation in-betweenwill be reproduced. By checking the image and its brightness histogram, you can see the exposure level inclination and the overall tone reproduction.

[RGB] Display

This histogram is a graph showing the distribution of the image’s brightness level of each primary color (RGB or red, green, and blue). The horizontal axis indicates the color’s brightness level (darker on the left and brighter on the right), while the vertical axis indicates how many pixels exist for each color brightness level. The more pixels there are toward the left, the darker and less prominent the color. And the more pixels there are toward the right, the brighter and denser the color. If there are too many pixels on the left, the respective color information will be lacking. And if there are too many pixels on the right, the color will be too saturated with no detail. By checking the image’s RGB histogram, you can see the color’s saturation and gradation condition and white balance inclination.

Sensor Cleaning

The cameraCOPYhas a Self Cleaning Sensor Unit attached to the image sensor’s front layer(low-passfilter) to shake off dust automatically.

The Dust Delete Data can also be appended to the image so that the dust spots remaining can be erased automatically by Digital Photo Professional (provided software).

Minimizing Dust

When changing lenses, do it in a place with minimal dust. When storing the camera without a lens attached, be sure to attach the body cap to the camera.

Remove dust on the body cap before attaching it.

Even while the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit is operating, you can press the shutter button halfway to interrupt the cleaning and start shooting immediately.

147

3Automatic Sensor Cleaning

Whenever you set the power switch to <1/J> or <2>, the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit operates to automatically shake off the dust on the front of the sensor. Normally, you need not be aware of this operation. However, you can execute the sensor cleaning at anytime as well as disable it.

Cleaning the Sensor Now

Get a solid-whiteobject (paper, etc.).

Set the lens focal length to 50mm or longer.

Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and set the focus to infinity (). If the lens has no distance scale, look at the front of the lens and turn the focusing ring clockwise all the way.

Obtain the Dust Delete Data

1

Select [Dust Delete Data].

 

Under the [2] tab, select [Dust

 

Delete Data], then press <0>.

2 Select [OK].

 

Turn the <5> dial to select [OK],

 

then press <0>. After the automatic

COPYsensor cleaning ends, a message will

appear. Although there will be a shutter sound, a picture is not taken.

3Appending Dust Delete DataN

3 Photograph asolid-whiteobject.

At a distance of 20 cm - 30 cm / 0.7 ft. - 1.0 ft., fill the viewfinder with a patternless, solid-whiteobject and take a picture.

X The picture will be taken in theaperture-priorityAE mode with an aperture of f/22.

Since the image will not be saved, the data can still be obtained even if there is no card in the camera.

X When the picture is taken, the camera willCOPYstart obtaining the Dust Delete Data.

When the Dust Delete Data is obtained, a message will appear.

Select [OK], and the menu will reappear.

If the data was not obtained successfully, a message to that effect will appear. Follow the “Preparation” procedure on the preceding page, then select [OK]. Take the picture again.

About the Dust Delete Data

After the Dust Delete Data is obtained, it is appended to all the JPEG and RAW images captured thereafter. Before an important shoot, you should update the Dust Delete Data by obtaining it again.

To erase dust spots automatically with the bundled software, see the Software Instruction Manual in the CD-ROM.

The Dust Delete Data appended to the image is so small that it hardly affects the image file size.

Be sure to use a solid-whiteobject such as a new sheet of white paper. If the paper has any pattern or design, it may be recognized as dust data and affect the accuracy of the dust deletion with the software.

3Manual Sensor CleaningN

Dust which could not be removed by the automatic sensor cleaning can be removed manually with a blower, etc.

The surface of the image sensor is extremely delicate. If the sensor needs to be cleaned directly, having it done by a Canon Service Center is recommended.

Before cleaning the sensor, detach the lens from the camera.

1 Select [Sensor cleaning].

Under the [6] tab, select [Sensor cleaning], then press <0>.

COPY2 Select [Clean manually].

Turn the <5> dial to select [Clean manually], then press <0>.

CLEA n” will blink on the LCD panel.

4 End the cleaning.

Set the power switch to <2>.

For the power source, using the AC Adapter Kit ACK-E2(sold separately) is recommended.

If you use the battery, make sure it is fully recharged. If a battery grip with size-AA/LR6batteries is attached, manual sensor cleaning will not be possible.

151

3Manual Sensor CleaningN

While cleaning the sensor, never do any of the following. Doing any of the following will cut off the power and close the shutter. The shutter curtains and image sensor might get damaged.

Setting the power switch to <2>.

Opening the battery compartment cover.

Opening the card slot cover.

The surface of the image sensor is extremely delicate. Clean the sensor with care.

Use a plain blower without any brush attached. A brush can scratch the sensor.

Do not insert the blower tip inside the camera beyond the lens mount. If the power is turned off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains or reflex mirror might get damaged.

Never use canned air or gas to clean the sensor. The blowing force can damageCOPYthe sensor or the spray gas can freeze on the sensor.
