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.
6
• 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, 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 well-wrung 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, CF 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.
8
Handling Precautions
LCD Panel 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.
CF Card
¡ The CF card is a 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 CF 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 CF card.
¡ Always store your CF cards in a case to protect the data stored on them.
¡ Non-Canon CF cards may not be able to record and playback images. Using
Canon CF cards is recommended.
¡ Do not bend the card or subject it to any excessive force or physical shock.
¡ Do not store CF cards in hot, dusty, or humid locations.
Lens Electrical Contacts
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.

The image sensor is like the film in a film camera. If any dust or other
foreign matter adheres to the image sensor, it may show up as a dark
speck in the images. To avoid this, follow the procedure below to clean
the image sensor. Note that the image sensor is a very delicate
component. If possible, you should have it cleaned by a Canon Service
Center.
While you clean the image sensor, the camera must be turned on.
Using the AC Adapter Kit ACK-E2 (optional, see page 154) is
recommended. If you use a battery, make sure the battery level is
sufficient. Before cleaning the sensor, detach the lens from the camera.

About the RAW Format
The RAW format 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, color space, and
processing parameters set at the time of shooting. Image processing
refers to adjusting the RAW image’s white balance, contrast, etc., to
create the final image. Note that direct printing and print ordering
(DPOF) will not work with RAW images.

¡ While you are shooting and the number of shots remaining in the
maximum burst is fewer than 9, the viewfinder will display “8”, “7”, etc. If
you stop the continuous shooting, the maximum burst will increase.
The following applies to the 73/83/74/84/76/86 (JPEG)
recording quality modes:
¡ The maximum burst may greatly decrease (6 or less) in the following cases:
• In the <2> mode, the built-in flash automatically switches between firing and non-firing.
• During continuous shooting, the external flash cannot recycle fast enough.
¡ Since the maximum burst may greatly decrease (6 or less), avoid doing
the following operations:
• Pressing the shutter button completely repeatedly at short intervals.
• Right after image capture, you change the shooting mode and take
pictures immediately.
• During continuous shooting, you pop-up or retract the built-in flash or
turn the external Speedlite on or off.
¡ After all the captured images are processed and written to the CF card,
the above table’s figures for the maximum burst will apply.
¡ With white balance bracketing (p.54), the maximum burst will be 6.
¡ The maximum burst is displayed even when the drive mode is set to <u> (Single) or
<j>. The maximum burst is displayed even when a CF card is not in the camera.
Therefore, before shooting, make sure that a CF card is installed in the camera.
48
g Setting the ISO SpeedN
The ISO speed is a numeric indication of the sensitivity to light. A higher
ISO speed number indicates a higher sensitivity to light. Therefore, a
high ISO speed is suited for low light and moving subjects. However, the
image may look more coarse with noise, etc. On the other hand, a low
ISO speed is not suited for low light or action shots, but the image will
look cleaner. The camera can be set between ISO 100 and 1600 in 1stop increments.
ISO Speed in the Basic Zone Modes
The ISO speed is set automatically within ISO 100-400.
ISO Speed in the Creative Zone Modes
You can set the ISO speed to “100”, “200”, “400”, “800”, or “1600”. With
C.Fn-08 [ISO expansion] set to [1: On] (p.143), “H” (ISO 3200) can
also be set.

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.

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 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 described in the
“EOS 20D Software Instruction Manual.”

f Selecting the AF ModeN
* About Predictive AF
If the subject approaches or retreats from the camera at a constant rate,
the camera tracks the subject and predicts the focusing distance
immediately before the picture is taken. This is for obtaining correct
focus at the moment of exposure.
¡ When the AF point selection is automatic, 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 a manually selected AF point, the selected AF point will focus
track the subject.
AI Focus AF for Automatic Switching of AF Mode
AI Focus AF switches the AF mode from
One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF
automatically if the still subject starts
moving.
After the subject is focused in the OneShot AF mode, if the subject starts
moving, the camera will detect the

Flash Photography
The built-in flash or an EOSdedicated, EX-series Speedlite
enables E-TTL II autoflash
(evaluative flash metering with
preflash), making flash
photography as easy as normal
shooting. The result is naturallooking flash photos. In the Basic
Zone modes (except <3> <5>
<7>), flash photography is fully
automatic. In Creative Zone modes,
flash can be used whenever
necessary.
First set the <4> switch to <J>.

¡ Use the built-in flash at least 1m/3.3 ft away from the subject. Closer
distances will cause the lens to partially obstruct the flash.
¡ When using the built-in flash, detach any hood attahed to the lens. A lens
hood will partially obstruct the flash.
¡ When a super telephoto lens or fast, large-aperture lens is attached, the
built-in flash coverage might be obstructed. Using an EX-series
Speedlite (optional) is recommended.
¡ The built-in flash’s coverage is effective with lens focal lengths as short
as 17mm. If the lens is shorter than 17mm, the periphery of the flash
photo will look dark.
¡ To retract the flash, push it back down.
¡ In the <s> <a> modes, even if you set the shutter speed to one faster
than 1/250 sec., it will be set automatically to 1/250 sec.

Using the Built-in Flash
Using Red-eye Reduction
When flash is used in a low-light environment, the subject’s eyes may
look red in the image. “Red eye” happens when the light from the flash
reflects off the retina of the eyes. The camera’s red-eye reduction
feature turns on the red-eye reduction lamp to shine a gentle light into
the subject’s eyes to narrow the pupil diameter or iris. A smaller pupil
reduces the chances of red eye from occurring. Red-eye reduction can
be set in any shooting mode except <3> <5> <7>.

Using EOS-Dedicated, External Speedlites
With EX-series Speedlites
An EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlite makes flash photography as
easy as normal shooting. You can easily do the flash operations below.
For detailed procedures, see the Speedlite’s instruction manual.
¡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)
With high-speed sync, you can set a sync speed faster than 1/250 sec.
• FE (Flash Exposure) Lock
Press the camera’s <A> button to lock the flash exposure at the desired part
of the subject.
• 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 1/3stop increments.
• FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)
The flash output is changed automatically for three successive shots (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
As with wired, multiple Speedlites, wireless E-TTL II 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).
About EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlites
The flash cannot be fired with an EZ-, E-, EG-, ML-, or TL-series
Speedlite set in the TTL or A-TTL autoflash mode. Use the
Speedlite’s manual flash mode instead if provided.
97
Using EOS-Dedicated, External Speedlites
¡ When using an external Speedlite, retract the built-in flash before
mounting the external Speedlite.
¡ If the EX-series Speedlite’s firing mode is set to TTL autoflash with the
Custom Function, the Speedlite will not fire.
¡ If autofocus cannot be achieved, the external, EOS-dedicated
Speedlite’s AF-assist beam (if the Speedlite has an AF-assist beam) will
be emitted automatically (except in <3> <5> <7> modes).
¡ The EOS 20D is a Type-A camera that can use all the features of EXseries Speedlites.
Using Non-Canon Flash Units
Sync Speed
The EOS 20D 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 unit beforehand
to make sure 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 or flash accessory dedicated to
another camera brand, the camera may not operate properly and
malfunction may result.
¡ Also, do not connect to the camera’s PC terminal any flash unit requiring
250 V or more.
¡ 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.

than the capacity indicated on the card.
Handling “Err CF”
If “Err CF” (CF error) is displayed on the LCD panel, it indicates that a
problem with the CF card is preventing the image data from being recorded
or read. Use another CF card instead.
Or, if you have a commercially-available CF card reader that can read the
CF card, use it to transfer all the images in the card to a personal computer.
After transferring all the image data to a personal computer, format the CF
card. It may then return to normal.

DPOF: Digital Print
Order Format
With DPOF (Digital Print Order Format), you can use
the camera to specify which images in the CF card are
to be printed and the quantity. This feature is very
convenient when you make prints with a DPOFcompatible printer or photo lab.
About DPOF
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) is a standard for recording
print ordering instructions to the CF 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 CF 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.
