Safety Warnings
Follow these safeguards and use the equipment properly to prevent
injury, death, and material damage.
Preventing Serious Injury or Death
• To prevent fire, excessive heat, chemical leakage, and explosions, follow the
safeguards below:
- Do not use any batteries, power sources, and accessories not specified in this
booklet. Do not use any home-made or modified batteries.
- Do not short-circuit, disassemble, or modify the battery pack or back-up battery. Do
not apply heat or apply solder to the battery pack or back-up battery. Do not expose
the battery pack or back-up battery to fire or water. And do not subject the battery
pack or back-up battery to strong physical shock.
- Do not install the battery pack or back-up battery in reversed polarity (+ –). Do not
mix new and old or different types of batteries.
- Do not recharge the battery pack outside the allowable ambient temperature range
of 0°C - 40°C (32°F - 104°F). Also, do not exceed the recharging time.
- Do not insert any foreign metallic objects into the electrical contacts of the camera,
accessories, connecting cables, etc.
• Keep the back-up battery away from children. If a child swallows the battery, consult a
physician immediately. (Battery chemicals may harm the stomach and intestines.)
• When disposing of a battery pack or back-up battery, insulate the electrical contacts
with tape to prevent contact with other metallic objects or batteries. This is to prevent
fire or an explosion.
• If excessive heat, smoke, or fumes are emitted during battery pack recharging,
immediately unplug the battery charger from the power outlet to stop the recharging
and prevent a fire.
• If the battery pack or back-up battery leaks, changes color, deforms, or emits smoke or
fumes, remove it immediately. Be careful not to get burned in the process.
• Prevent any battery leakage from contacting your eyes, skin, and clothing. It can
cause blindness or skin problems. If the battery leakage contacts your eyes, skin, or
clothing, flush the affected area with lots of clean water without rubbing it. See a
physician immediately.
• During the recharging, keep the equipment away from the reach of children. The cord
can accidentally choke the child or give an electrical shock.
• Do not leave any cords near a heat source. It can deform the cord or melt the
insulation and cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not fire the flash at someone driving a car. It may cause an accident.
• Do not fire the flash near a person’s eyes. It may impair the person’s vision. When
using flash to photograph an infant, keep at least 1 meter away.
• Before storing the camera or accessory when not in use, remove the battery pack and
disconnect the power plug. This is to prevent electrical shock, heat generation, and
fire.
• Do not use the equipment where there is flammable gas. This is to prevent an
explosion or fire.
8
• If you drop the equipment and the casing breaks open to expose the internal parts, do
not touch the internal parts due to the possibility of electrical shock.
• Do not disassemble or modify the equipment. High-voltage internal parts can cause
electrical shock.
• Do not look at the sun or an extremely bright light source through the camera or lens.
Doing so may damage your vision.
• Keep the camera from the reach of small children. The neck strap can accidentally
choke the child.
• Do not store the equipment in dusty or humid places. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Before using the camera inside an airplane or hospital, check if it is allowed.
Electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the plane’s
instruments or the hospital’s medical equipment.
• To prevent fire and electrical shock, follow the safeguards below:
- Always insert the power plug all the way in.
- Do not handle a power plug with wet hands.
- When unplugging a power plug, grasp and pull the plug instead of the cord.
- Do not scratch, cut, or excessively bend the cord or put a heavy object on the cord.
Also do not twist or tie the cords.
- Do not connect too many power plugs to the same power outlet.
- Do not use a cord whose insulation has been damaged.
• Occasionally unplug the power plug and use a dry cloth to clean off the dust around
the power outlet. If the surrounding is dusty, humid, or oily, the dust on the power outlet
may become moist and short-circuit the outlet to cause a fire.
Preventing Injury or Equipment Damage
• Do not leave equipment inside a car under the hot sun or near a heat source. The
equipment may become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not carry the camera around while it is attached to a tripod. Doing so may cause
injury. Also make sure the tripod is sturdy enough to support the camera and lens.
• Do not leave a lens or lens-attached camera under the sun without the lens cap
attached. Otherwise, the lens may concentrate the sun’s rays and cause a fire.
• Do not cover or wrap the battery-recharging apparatus with a cloth. Doing so may trap
heat within and cause the casing to deform or catch fire.
• If you drop the camera in water or if water or metal fragments enter inside the camera,
promptly remove the battery pack and back-up battery. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Do not use or leave the battery pack or back-up battery in a hot environment. Doing so
may cause battery leakage or a shorter battery life. The battery pack or back-up
battery can also become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the equipment.
Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard.
If the product does not work properly or requires repair, contact your dealer
or your nearest Canon Service Center.

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, remove the battery and 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 with a wellwrung wet 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 blower to blow away dust on the lens, viewfinder, 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 a 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 this occurs, remove the lens, memory 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-ventilated location. 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 the camera. 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.
10
Handling Precautions
LCD Panels and LCD Monitor
Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision
technology with over 99.99% active 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.
At low temperatures, the liquid-crystal display response may become slower.
And at high temperatures, the display may blacken. In either case, the
display will return to normal at room temperature.
Memory Cards
Memory cards are precision device. Do not drop the memory card or subject
it to vibration. Doing so could damage the images recorded on them.
Do not store or use a memory card near anything having a strong magnetic
field such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to
having static electricity. Otherwise, the images recorded on the memory card
might be lost.
Do not leave memory cards in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Doing so
can warp the cards and make them unusable.
Do not spill any liquid onto the memory card.
Always store your memory cards in a case to protect the data stored on
them.
Non-Canon memory cards may not be able to record and playback images.
Using Canon memory cards is recommended.
Do not bend the card or subject it to any excessive force or physical shock.
Do not store memory cards in hot, dusty, or humid locations.
Lens Electrical Contacts
After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the
lens caps or put down the lens with the rear end up
to avoid scratching the lens surface and electrical
contacts.

About the RAW
The RAW assumes that the image will undergo post-processing with a personal
computer. Special knowledge is required, but you can use the bundled software to
obtain the desired effect.
<1> images are processed according to the white balance and Picture Style
set at the time of shooting.
Image processing refers to adjusting the RAW image’s white balance, contrast,
etc. , to create the desired image.
Note that direct printing and print ordering (DPOF) will not work with RAW images.

The number of possible shots and maximum burst apply to a Canon
512MB memory card.
The single image size, number of possible shots, and maximum burst during
continuous shooting are based on Canon’s testing criteria (JPEG quality: 8, Picture
Style: Standard, ISO 100, etc. ). The actual file size and number of possible shots will
depend on the subject, JPEG quality, shooting mode, ISO speed, Picture Style, etc.
With memory cards featuring high-speed writing, the maximum burst
may be higher than the figures in the table above.
On the top LCD panel, you can check the remaining number of shots
the memory card can record.
The maximum burst for continuous shooting can be displayed up to
99 in the viewfinder.

About Adobe RGB
This 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).
Since the image will look very subdued with sRGB personal computers
and printers not compatible with Design rule for Camera File System
2.0 (Exif 2.21), post-processing of the image with software will be
required.
If the captured image was shot in the Adobe RGB color space, the first
character in the file name will be an underscore (_).
The ICC profile is not appended. The ICC profile is explained in the
Software Instruction Manual (PDF).

About White Balance
The three RGB (red, green, and blue) primary colors exist in the light source
in varying proportions depending on the color temperature. When the color
temperature is high, there is more blue. And when the color temperature is
low, there is more red.
To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of
lighting. With a digital camera, the color temperature can be adjusted with
software so that the colors in the image look more natural. The subject’s
white color is used as the criteria for adjusting the other colors. The
camera’s <Q> setting uses the CMOS sensor for auto white balance.
64
3 Custom White Balance
With custom white balance, you shoot a white object that will serve as
the basis for the white balance setting. By selecting this image, you
import its white balance data for the white balance setting.

The color temperature can be set
from 2800K to 10000K in 100K
increments.
When setting the color temperature for an artificial light source, set white
balance correction (magenta or green) as necessary.
If you want to set <P> to the reading taken with a color temperature
meter, take test shots and adjust the setting to compensate for the
difference between the color temperature meter’s reading and the
camera’s color temperature reading.
67
White Balance Correction
You can correct the color temperature for the white balance setting.
This adjustment will have the same effect as using a color temperature
conversion or color compensating filter. Each color can be corrected to
one of nine levels.
Users familiar with using color temperature conversion or color
compensating filters will find this feature handy.

To cancel white balance correction,
return the setting to “0”.
During the adjustment, <a> will be displayed in the viewfinder.
One level of the blue/amber correction is equivalent to 5 mireds of a color
temperature conversion filter. (Mired: measuring unit indicating the
density of a color temperature conversion filter. )
You can also set white balance bracketing and AEB shooting in addition
to the white balance correction.
68
White Balance Auto Bracketing
With just one shot, three images having a different color tone can be
recorded simultaneously. Based on the white balance mode’s standard
color temperature, the image will be bracketed with a blue/amber bias
or magenta/green bias. This is called white balance bracketing. It can
be set up to ±3 levels in single-level increments.

You can also set white balance correction and AEB shooting in addition
to the 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.
During continuous shooting, the number of images recorded will be three
times the number of shots taken.
Since three images are recorded for one shot, the memory card will take
longer to record the shot.

71
Setting the Folder and Memory Card
A folder cannot be created beyond folder No. 999.
Creating Folders with a Personal Computer
With the memory 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 names must start with three digits from 100 to 999 followed by
five letters, like 100ABC_D. The five letters can be a combination of upper
or lower case letters from A to Z and an underscore. There can be no
spaces in the folder name. Also, if there are folder numbers with the same
three-digit number (regardless of the letters) such as “100ABC_C” and
“100ABC_D”, the camera will not recognize the folders.

If “RAW+JPEG separate recording” is set and the image size is not set to
RAW+JPEG, it will be the same as “Dual image recording”.
When “Dual image recording” or “RAW+JPEG separate recording” is set,
the images will be saved in the respective memory cards under the same
file number in the same-numbered folder.
To make it easier to find the images, creating a new empty folder to save
captured images is recommended.
The number of remaining shots displayed on the top LCD panel will be
based on the memory card having less remaining capacity.
When [BackUp] is set, a folder having the same folder number might be
created automatically in both the CF card and SD card.
If either one of the memory cards becomes full, shooting will not be
possible.
You cannot move or copy images between the two cards.

AF Sensitivity and Lens’ Maximum Aperture
The EOS-1D Mark II N’s AF points are all horizontal-line sensitive.
However, bright lenses with a large maximum aperture enable certain
AF points to work as cross-type sensors for higher AF precision.
(1) With lenses whose maximum aperture is f/2.8 or
larger, the AF points highlighted in the diagram will
work as cross-type sensors sensitive to both vertical
and horizontal lines. The remaining 38 AF points will
only be horizontal-line sensitive. The cross-type
sensor’s vertical-line sensitivity is about three times
higher than its horizontal-line sensitivity.
(2) With the following L-series lenses whose
maximum aperture is f/4 or larger, the center AF
point will be a cross-type sensor with or without
an Extender attached. The remaining 44 AF
points will only be horizontal-line sensitive
(except with EF70-200mm f/2.8L USM +
Extender EF1.4x or EF1.4x ll).

AF Sensitivity and Lens’ Maximum Aperture
(3) With the following L-series lenses whose
maximum aperture is f/8 or larger and attached
with an Extender, AF will work with the center AF
point (horizontal-line sensitive) only. AF will not
work with the other AF points.
With Extender EF1.4x or EF1.4x II:
· EF400mm f/5.6L USM
· EF500mm f/4.5L USM
· EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM

With the EF70-200mm f/2.8L USM lens (without IS) attached with
Extender EF1.4x or EF1.4x II, the center AF point will work as a cross-type
sensor. Do not use autofocus with the other AF points because they may
cause a focusing error.

When Autofocus Fails (Manual Focusing)
Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the focus confirmation light <o>
blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:
Subjects difficult to focus
(a) Low-contrast subjects
Example: Blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.
(b) Subjects in low light
(c) Extremely backlit and reflective subjects
Example: Car with a reflective body, etc.
(d) Overlapping near and far objects
Example: Animal in a cage, etc.
(e) Repetitive patterns
Example: Skyscraper windows, computer keyboards, etc.
In such cases, do one of the following:
(1) Focus an object at the same distance as the subject and lock the
focus before recomposing.
(2) Set the lens focus mode switch to <g> and focus manually.
If focus cannot be achieved with the AF-assist beam of a Speedlite or
Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2, select the center AF point. An off-center AF
point may not be able to achieve focus.
89
When Autofocus Fails (Manual Focusing)
Manual Focusing
Set the lens focus mode switch to <g>
and turn the lens focusing ring to focus.
If you select an AF point and press the shutter button halfway while
manual focusing, the AF point will flash and the focus confirmation light
will light when focus is achieved.
During automatic AF point selection, when the center AF point achieves
focus, it will flash and the focus confirmation light will light.

During mirror lockup, do not point the camera lens at the sun. The sun’s
heat can scorch and damage the shutter curtains.
Bulb exposures cannot be used with the self-timer. During the self-timer
countdown, if you let go of the shutter button, there will be a shutterrelease sound. This is not the shutter release (no picture is taken).
During mirror lockup, the drive mode will be single shooting (u) to
override the current drive mode (single or continuous).
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 Remote Switch RS-80N3 or Timer Remote
Controller TC-80N3 (both optional) is recommended.
Eyepiece Shutter
If you take a picture without looking
through the viewfinder, stray light may
enter the eyepiece and affect the
exposure. To prevent this, turn the
eyepiece shutter lever as shown by the
arrow to shutter the eyepiece.

Flash Photography
With EX-series Speedlites
An EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlite makes flash photography as
easy as any AE mode. For details on using the EX-series Speedlite,
refer to the Speedlite’s instruction manual. The EOS-1D Mark II N is a
Type-A camera compatible with all EX-series Speedlites providing the
features below.
• E-TTL II Autoflash
E-TTL II is a new autoflash exposure system incorporating improved
flash exposure control and lens focusing distance information,
making it more precise than the previous E-TTL (evaluative flash
metering with preflash) system.The camera can execute E-TTL II
autoflash with any EX-series Speedlite.
• High-Speed Sync (FP Flash)
High-speed sync (FP or focal-plane flash) enables flash
synchronization with all shutter speeds from 30 sec. to 1/8000 sec.
• FE (Flash Exposure) Lock
Press the camera’s <I> button to lock the flash exposure at the
desired part of the subject. This is the flash equivalent of AE lock.
• Flash exposure compensation
In the same way as normal exposure compensation, you can set
exposure compensation for flash. Set flash exposure compensation
up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
• FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)
FEB is the flash version of AEB. (Only with FEB-compatible
Speedlites.) Set flash exposure bracketing up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop
increments.
• E-TTL II wireless autoflash with multiple Speedlites
Like with wired, multiple Speedlites, E-TTL II wireless autoflash with
multiple Speedlites provides all the above features. Since connection
cords are unnecessary, flexible and sophisticated lighting setups are
possible. (Only with wireless-compatible Speedlites.)
112
Flash Photography
Metered Manual Flash Exposure
For closeup flash photography, you can set the flash exposure
manually. With an EX-series Speedlite having a manual flash mode,
follow the procedure below:
1 Set the camera and Speedlite settings.
Set the camera’s shooting mode to <a> or <f>.
Set the Speedlite to manual flash.
2 Focus the subject.
Focus manually.
3 Aim the center spot metering circle over the subject,
then press the <FEL> button (8).
X The Speedlite will fire a preflash and the required flash output
is retained in memory.
X In the viewfinder, the exposure level indicator will indicate the
currently-set flash exposure level relative to the standard
exposure index.
4 Set the flash exposure level.
Adjust the Speedlite’s manual flash level and the
camera aperture so that the flash exposure level
indicator is aligned with the standard exposure
index.
5 Take the picture.
TTL and A-TTL Autoflash Speedlites
With TTL and A-TTL autoflash Speedlites (EZ-, E-, EG-, ML-, TLseries) set in the TTL or A-TTL autoflash mode, the flash will be fired
only at full output. If you set the camera’s shooting mode to manual
or aperture-priority AE, you can adjust the aperture and fire the flash
at full output. Meanwhile, the Speedlite will remain in the TTL or ATTL autoflash mode.
When the 580EX or 550EX is set to C.Fn-03-1, the flash will always
be fired at full output even in the TTL autoflash mode.
113
Flash Photography
Non-Canon Flash Units
Sync Speed
The EOS-1D Mark II N can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash
units at 1/250 sec. or slower shutter speeds. With large studio flash, the
sync speed is 1/125 sec. or slower. Be sure to test the flash to see if it
synchronizes properly with the camera.
PC Terminal
The camera’s PC terminal is provided for flash units having a sync
cord. The PC terminal is threaded to prevent inadvertent
disconnection.
The camera’s PC terminal has no polarity so you can connect any
sync cord regardless of its polarity.
If the camera is used with a flash unit (with dedicated flash contacts) or
flash accessory dedicated to another camera brand, the camera may not
operate properly and camera malfunction may result. Also, do not
connect to the camera’s PC terminal any flash unit requiring 250 V or
higher voltage.
Do not attach a high voltage flash unit on the camera’s hot shoe. It might
not work.
A Speedlite attached to the camera’s hot shoe and a flash unit connected to
the PC terminal can be used at the same time.
114
Image Playback
You can view or erase the images you captured with the

[Bright.] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the
distribution of the image’s brightness level. The
horizontal axis indicates the brightness level
(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 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 lost. And if there are too
many pixels on the right, the highlight detail will
be lost. The tones in-between will be
reproduced.
By checking the image’s brightness histogram,
you can see the exposure level bias and the
overall tone reproduction condition.

[RGB] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the distribution of the image’s
brightness level of each primary color (RGB or red, blue, and green).
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

Or, if you have a memory card reader (commercially available), use it to
transfer all the images from the card to a personal computer. After checking
that all the images are in the personal computer, format the card with the
camera. It may then return to normal.
About Low-level Formatting
Low-level formatting is possible only when [Card2] for the SD card is
selected. If the writing speed to the SD card is slower than usual or if
you want to completely erase the data in the SD card, checkmark [Low
Level Format] and format the card. Since the entire card will be wiped
out, the formatting will take slightly longer than normal formatting.

Preparing to Print
RAW images are not compatible with direct printing.
If you use a battery to power the camera, make sure it is fully charged.
During direct printing, keep checking the battery level.
If there is a long beeping sound in step 5, it indicates a problem with the
PictBridge printer. To find out what’s wrong, do the following:
Press the <x> button to playback the image and follow the steps below.
1. Press the <X> button.
2. On the print setting screen, select [Print].
The error message will be displayed on the LCD monitor. See “Error
Messages” on page 142.
Before disconnecting the cable, turn off the camera and printer. Pull out
the cable while holding the plug, not the cord.
When connecting the camera to the printer, do not use any cable other
than the dedicated interface cable.
Do not disconnect the cable during direct printing.
For direct printing, using the DC Coupler Kit DCK-E1 (p.27) is
recommended to power the camera.
To Windows XP and Mac OS X (10.1 or later) Users
When you connect the camera to a personal computer with the USB cable
provided with the camera, you can upload the JPEG images in the camera’s
memory card to the personal computer via PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol).
For details, see the EOS DIGITAL Software Instruction Manual (PDF).

DPOF: Digital Print
Order Format
With DPOF (Digital Print Order Format), you can
specify which images in the memory card are to be
printed and the quantity. This feature is very convenient
when you make prints with a DPOF-compatible printer
or photo lab.
About DPOF
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) is a standard for recording
print ordering instructions to the memory card. It is for images
taken with a digital camera, and you can specify which photos
and the quantity to print. With a DPOF-compatible digital
camera, you can do the following:
By inserting a memory card into a DPOF-compatible printer,
you can make prints as specified.
Printers capable of direct printing from the camera can print
the images as specified by DPOF.
When ordering prints from a photo lab, you do not need to
fill in any order form to specify the image selections,
quantity, etc.

effective for when only one manually-selected AF point is unable to focus
track a subject moving erratically.
2: Automatic expand (max. 13)
The camera automatically sets the AF point activation area to 7 or 13 points
to suit the lens focal length and AF mode.This is effective when the subjectís
movement is unpredictable.
The AF point activation area centers on the selected AF point. Therefore, if a peripheral
AF point is selected, the AF point activation area will be smaller as shown below.
