Preventing Malfunctions
Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors or other equipment generating
strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields may cause malfunctions
or corrupt image data.
Avoid Condensation Related Problems
Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may cause condensation
(water droplets) to form on its external and internal surfaces. You can avoid this by placing
the equipment in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it adjust to temperature
changes slowly before removing it from the bag.
If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation. Continued use may damage
the equipment. Remove the CF card and battery or power cord (if connected) from the
camera and wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.
Extended Storage
When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the battery (except the
CR2025 lithium button battery) and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera
for extended periods with a battery installed will run down the battery and may damage the
camera.
Important Safety Functions and Preventive Measures
• When the CF Card Access Lamp is blinking, do not remove the CF card from the camera.
Since the card is reading and writing data when the lamp is blinking, removal of the CF
card at this time will damage the card.
• Do not use any cable other than that supplied with the camera. Use the supplied interface
cable to connect the camera to a computer. Use of any other cable may lead to a
malfunction.
9
Introduction
• Avoid using, placing or storing the equipment in places subject to strong sunlight or high
temperatures, such as the dashboard or trunk (boot) of a car. Exposure to intense
sunlight and heat may cause the batteries to leak, overheat or explode, resulting in fire,
burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.
Ensure that there is good ventilation when using the battery charger to charge the battery
pack.
Handling Precautions
The Camera
(1) This camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or expose it to physical shock.
(2) The camera is not waterproof and should not be used in wet conditions or underwater. If
the camera gets wet, take it to your nearest Canon dealer as soon as possible. If small
amounts of water splash onto the camera, wipe it with a clean dry cloth. If the camera is
exposed to salty air, wipe it thoroughly with a slightly damp cloth.
(3) Never leave the camera close to devices that generate strong magnetic fields, such as
magnets or electric motors. Do not operate or leave the camera in areas where strong
electromagnetic signals are generated, such as near electronic transmission towers.
Exposing the camera to strong electromagnetic signals can cause it to malfunction and
destroy recorded image data.
(4) Do not leave the camera in hot locations, such as in a car sitting in direct sunlight. High
temperatures can damage the camera.
(5) The camera contains precision circuits. Never attempt to disassemble the camera or
service it yourself.
(6) Use a commercially available blower brush to remove any dust that accumulates on the
camera lens, viewfinder, mirror, or focusing screen. Do not use cleaners that contain
organic solvents to wipe off the camera body or lens. If the camera is very soiled, consult
your nearest Canon dealer.
(7) Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your hands. Doing so could corrode the
contacts and interfere with the camera’s normal operation.
(8) 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. Let the camera adjust to the warmer temperature before taking it out of
the bag.
(9) Do not use the camera if condensation forms on it, or you could damage it. If this occurs,
remove the CF card and battery from the camera, and wait until the condensation has
evaporated before using the camera.
(10) If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove its battery and store the
camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. While the camera is in storage, operate its
shutter periodically to make sure that it is working.
(11) Avoid storing the camera in locations where potentially corrosive chemicals are used,
such as in a laboratory.
(12) If the camera has been in storage for an extended period, check its components before
using it. If you have not used the camera for some time or are planning to take shots you
will not want to lose (overseas vacation, etc.), have the camera checked by your Canon
dealer beforehand, or check for yourself that the camera components are working
properly.
LCD Panel and LCD Monitor
(1) The LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision technology. However, there
may be a few dead pixels where a black or red pixel is always displayed. They number no
more than 0.01 percent of all effective pixels. They are not a malfunction and do not affect
the images recorded.
(2) Do not press hard on an LCD display or subject it to impacts, as this can cause display
flaws and damage.
10
Handling Precautions
Lithium Battery for the Date and Time
(1) Store lithium batteries out of reach of small children. The chemicals in these batteries are
very dangerous if the battery is accidentally swallowed. If this happens, seek medical
attention at once.
(2) Do not use metal instruments such as pliers to hold the battery, or you could cause a short
circuit.
(3) Do not disassemble or heat the battery, or you could rupture it.
CF Card
(1) The CF card is a precision device. Do not drop CF cards or expose them to vibrations.
Doing so could lose the images recorded on them.
(2) Do not store or use CF cards near objects that generate magnetic fields, such as TVs,
speakers, or magnets, or in locations affected by static electricity. Doing so could lose the
images recorded on the CF card.
(3) Do not place CF cards in direct sunlight or close to heating appliances. Doing so can
distort the cards and make them unusable.
(4) Do not spill liquids onto CF cards.
(5) Always store your CF cards in a case or cabinet to protect the data stored on them.
(6) Use only CF cards specified by Canon. Otherwise, you may be unable to record or play
back images.
(7) Do not bend CF cards, or subject them to strong impacts.
(8) Do not store CF cards in hot, dusty, or humid locations, or in locations exposed to static
electricity or magnetic fields.
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.

“Formatting a CF Card” on page 119 to format the card.
Do not use a low-capacity CF card. If the image file size is large, the CF card may not
be able to save the image.
A microdrive is a recording medium using a hard disk. It has a large capacity and the
price per megabyte is low. However, compared to a CF card equipped with a flash
memory, it is vulnerable to vibration and physical shock. If you use a microdrive, be
careful not to subject the camera to vibration, shake, or physical shock while it is
recording or displaying images.

Setting the ISO Speed
The ISO speed is a numeric indication of the sensitivity to light (→p.158). A higher ISO speed
number indicates a higher sensitivity to light. Therefore, a high ISO speed is suited for moving
subjects or shooting in low-light conditions. However, the image will contain more noise to
make it look coarse or grainy. On the other hand, a low ISO speed will make the image look
finer, but it is not suited for freezing motion or shooting in low light.

White Balance
The three R (red), G (green), and B (blue) primary colors exist in varying proportions in a light
source depending on its color temperature. When the color temperature is high, there is more
blue. And when the color temperature is low, there is more red. As the color temperature
increases from low to high, the color cast changes in the following sequence: red, orange,
yellow, white, and bluish white. For example, if you have a white object under a lit tungsten
light bulb, it will look red or orange in the image. If it is under fluorescent light, it will look
greenish.
To the human eye, a white object still looks white regardless of the type of lighting. The human
eye is highly adaptive to different types of lighting and color temperatures. With a film-based
camera, you can attach a color compensation filter to the lens or use tungsten film to compensate for the color cast caused by the light source's color temperature. With a digital camera’s
white balance setting, you can digitally compensate (based on a standard white color) the
color temperature so that the colors in the image look more natural.

White Balance Auto Bracketing
With just one shot, three images having a different color temperature can be recorded
simultaneously. Based on the current white balance mode’s standard color temperature, the
white balance setting can be changed from 0 to +/–3 stops in whole-stop increments. This is
called white balance bracketing. One stop is equivalent to 5 Mireds of a color conversion filter.
The bracketing sequence starts with a standard color temperature, bluish tone (decreased
compensation), and reddish tone (increased compensation). The images are assigned a file
number and recorded in the CF card.

∗ 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 image is captured. 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.
If the subject moves away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long as the
subject is covered by another AF point. The active AF point will not flash in red.

When Autofocus Fails (Manual Focusing)
Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the focus confirmation light blinks) with certain subjects
such as the following:
(a) Low-contrast subjects (blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.).
(b) Subjects in low light.
(c) Extremely backlit reflective subjects (car with a reflective body, etc.).
(d) Overlapping near and far objects (animal in a cage, 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 < MF> (or < M> on older lenses) and focus manually.

Metering Modes
Evaluative Metering
This is an all-around metering mode suited even for
backlit subjects. The viewfinder is divided into 35
metering zones to which all the AF points are linked
for evaluative metering. After detecting the main
subject’s position, brightness, background, front and
back lighting conditions, camera orientation (horizontal
or vertical), etc., the camera sets the proper exposure.
During manual focusing, evaluative metering is
based on the center AF point.
If the subject brightness and background light level
are very different (strong backlight or spotlight),
partial metering ( ) is recommended instead.

Shifting the Program
In Program AE mode, you can freely change the shutter speed and aperture value
combination (program) set by the camera while maintaining the same exposure
value. This is called shifting the program.
To do this, press the shutter button down halfway, then turn the < > dial until the
shutter speed or aperture value you want is displayed.
Program shift is canceled automatically after the image is captured.
If you are using a flash, you cannot shift the program.

Shutter-Priority AE
In this mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera automatically sets the aperture value
to suit the brightness of the subject. This is called Shutter-Priority AE.
A fast shutter speed can freeze the motion of a fast-moving subject and a slow shutter speed
can blur the subject to give the impression of motion.

Using the Built-in Flash
The built-in flash lets you take the following kinds of flash shots with the ease of a normal AE
shot.
●E-TTL autoflash
With E-TTL autoflash (preflash evaluative metering), optimum flash exposure is obtained for
the subject in focus. In the aperture-priority AE mode, a slow sync speed is set automatically
in low-light situations to obtain a natural-looking, balanced exposure between the subject
and background.

FE (flash exposure) lock sets the correct flash exposure for a selected part of the subject.

subject is captured by the flash, and the background is captured by long exposure using
a slow shutter speed.
Because automatic slow-sync shooting uses a slow shutter speed, always use a

Shooting with a Flash
Decreased exposure
Flash Shot with Speedlite 550EX
With Speedlite 550EX, flash shooting is as easy as any AE mode, and you can use the
following features:
●E-TTL autoflash
With E-TTL autoflash (preflash evaluative metering),
optimum flash exposure is obtained for the subject in
focus. In the aperture-priority AE mode, a slow sync speed
is set automatically in low-light situations to obtain a
natural-looking, balanced exposure between the subject
and background.
●
High-Speed Sync (FP Flash)
High-speed sync (FP or focal-plane flash) enables flash synchronization with all shutter
speeds from 30 sec. to 1/4000 sec.
●
FE (Flash Exposure) Lock
FE lock obtains and locks the correct flash exposure for any part of the subject. This is the
flash exposure lock equivalent of AE lock.
●
Flash exposure compensation
Like normal exposure compensation, flash exposure compensation can be used to set the
flash output up to +/–2 stops in 1/2-stop increments.
●
FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)
As with AEB (autoexposure bracketing), flash exposures can be bracketed up to +/–3 stops
in 1/2-stop increments.
●
E-TTL wireless autoflash with multiple Speedlites
E-TTL autoflash can also be implemented with multiple wireless Speedlites. All the features
listed above can be used, and no connections codes are required. Sophisticated lighting
effects can be obtained as easily as using a Speedlite directly attached to the camera.

High-speed sync is effective for portrait shot in the following situations:
When you want to use daylight sync flash for a portrait, and widen the aperture

When you want to produce a catchlight in the subject’s eyes.
When you want to use fill flash to eliminate shadows.

Flash Exposure Compensation
For flash shots with flash exposure compensation, see “Flash Exposure Compensation” for the
built-in flash. (→p.101)
Flash exposure compensation can also be set with certain EX-series Speedlites. If flash
exposure compensation is set with both the Speedlite and camera, the Speedlite’s flash
exposure compensation setting will override the camera's.
Modeling Flash
Modeling flash allows you to see shadows, light balance, and other effects produced by multiflash settings.
Check that the camera and Speedlite are
properly set for flash shot.
Press the camera’s depth-of-field preview button.
The 550EX will fire a series of flashes for 1 sec. at
70 Hz.
Wireless Multi-Flash/E-TTL Autoflash Shooting
Speedlite 550EX has the following three features:
(1) E-TTL autoflash
(2) Slave unit feature
(3) Master unit feature for wireless control of 550EX slave units
By using the above features, you can set up a wireless E-TTL autoflash system with multiple
Speedlite 550EXs.
You can also set a flash output ratio for up to three groups of Speedlites. Also main and sub
Speedlites can create the desired flash lighting effect.
For details, see the 550EX and ST-E2’s Instructions booklet.

Histogram
A histogram is a graph indicating the image’s brightness. The horizontal axis indicates the
brightness level, while the vertical axis indicates how many pixels exist for each brightness
level. From left to right on the horizontal axis, the brightness goes from dark to bright.
The more pixels there are toward the left, the darker the image. The more pixels there are
toward the right, the brighter the image.
Sample histogram
If there are too many pixels on either
side, you can set exposure compensation (→p.89) to take the shot again so
that the exposure is more accurate.

DPOF: Digital Print
Order Format
DPOF
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) is a standard used to record (on the CF
card or other recording media) the image number, number of prints, etc. of
images taken by digital cameras.
By fitting a CF card into a printer compatible with DPOF, you can make
prints as specified.
You will not need to fill out the desired numbers and quantities of prints
when ordering prints from a printing lab.
Printers capable of direct printing from the camera can print the images
as specified by DPOF.

Notes About DPOF
When printing with DPOF-compatible printers, note the following:
Images in the
format cannot be printed. Movies and TIFF images captured with other
cameras also cannot be printed.
If DPOF was set with a different camera and the CF card is inserted in your EOS 10D
camera, the < > icon may appear on the LCD monitor. If you then set DPOF settings, the
previous DPOF settings will be completely overwritten.
DPOF settings set with another DPOF-compatible equipment cannot be changed with your
EOS 10D camera. They can only be changed with the original equipment.
Depending on the DPOF-compatible printer and printing lab, the DPOF settings might not
be applied to the printing. Refer to the printer’s instruction booklet or consult the lab.

Cleaning the Image Sensor (CMOS)
The image sensor is like the film in a film-based 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. Use the AC Adapter Kit
ACK-E2 (optional accessory, see page 174) or a battery. If you use a battery, make sure the
battery level is sufficient. Before cleaning the image sensor, detach the lens from the
camera.

Basic Terminology
AE
Abbreviation for auto exposure. It is an automatic metering and exposure system that sets the
optimum exposure (shutter speed and/or aperture) based on the reading by the built-in
exposure meter.
AF
Abbreviation for auto focus. It enables the camera to focus the subject automatically.
CF (CompactFlash) card
CF card is the small, card-shaped storage media used to record images taken by the EOS
10D.
ISO speed
This indicates the film’s sensitivity to light. It is expressed as a number following “ISO” such as
“ISO 100.” The higher the number, the higher the sensitivity to light. Digital cameras also use
the same ISO speed standard used by film-based cameras.
JPEG
Abbreviation for Joint Photographic Experts Group. It is an image file format with various
compression levels. The higher the compression rate, the lower the image quality, when the file
is expanded (restored).
RAW
This is an image file format that saves the image as is when captured by the camera. It is
geared for image processing with a personal computer.
The image quality is not affected when the raw image is compressed, saved, or decompressed. By using the dedicated software for image processing, the image can be optimally
enhanced for the specified purpose.
sRGB
Color matching standard jointly developed by Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard. Cameras,
monitors, applications, and printers which comply with this standard are able to reproduce
colors in the same way. (The “s” stands for standard.)
Red-eye Effect
In a relatively dark room, where subjects’ pupils are dilated, the light from a camera flash
passes through the pupil, is reflected by the retina, and causes the subjects’ pupils to appear
red. Red-eye is particularly prevalent when the flash is close to the optical axis of the lens. Use
the following procedure to minimize red-eye:
1 Shoot with the Red-eye reduction function turned on. (The red-eye reduction lamp lights
before the image is taken, causing the pupils to contract and thus minimizing red-eye.)
2 Shoot with an EX-series Speedlite. (The light reflected from the pupil will not be directed
along the optical axis of the lens, thus minimizing red-eye.)
3 Shoot from as close as possible (same effect as 2).
160
Basic Terminology
Aperture
The aperture value (f/number) indicates the size of the
aperture opening in the lens. It is equal to the focal length
devided by the aperture diameter. It adjusts the amount of
light striking the CMOS sensor. The aperture value is
displayed on the camera’s LCD panel and in the
viewfinder. It can range anywhere from 1.0 to 91, depending on the lens attached to the camera.
Shutter speed
The shutter speed is the length of time the camera’s shutter opens to expose the CMOS
sensor to the light coming through the lens. It adjusts the amount of light striking the CMOS
sensor.
Format
When you format a CF card, it prepares the card to store data in it. It also erases any data
stored on the card. Before formatting a CF card, be sure it has no valuable data.
File numbers and folders
The captured images are automatically assigned a file
number from 0001 to 9999 and stored in a folder that can
contain up to 100 images. The folders are numbered from
100 to 999 and stored in the CF card.
The file name of JPEG images will be “IMG_ “ appended
with the “.JPG” extension. RAW image file names will be
“CRW_ “ appended with the “.CRW” extension. Image file
names with the “.THM” extension are thumbnail image
files for the index display.

Basic Terminology
Depth of field
This is the range where acceptable focus can be achieved in front of and behind the point of
focus. The smaller the aperture (the higher the f/number), the deeper the depth of field. And
the larger the aperture (the lower the f/number), the shallower the depth of field.
The depth of field is affected as described below:
(1) A smaller aperture (a higher f/number) increases the depth of field.
For example, stopping down to f/8 obtains a deeper depth of field than f/4.5.
(2) A lens with a shorter focal length increases the depth of field.
A wide-angle lens obtains a deeper depth of field than a telephoto lens.
(3) A longer distance between the camera and subject increases the depth of field.
(4) The depth of field behind the point of optimum focus (2) is longer than the depth of field in
front of the point of optimum focus (1).
Depth of field
Point of optimum focus
1
Aperture set to f/2.
2
Aperture set to f/22.
Exposure
Exposure occurs when the image sensor is exposed to light. Correct exposure is obtained
when the image sensor is exposed to a proper amount of light in accordance with its sensitivity
to light. The correct exposure is adjusted with the camera's shutter speed and aperture.
