INSTRUCTION
MANUAL
Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
The EOS 7D is a high-performance, digital SLR camera featuring a
fine-detail CMOS sensor with about 18.0 effective megapixels, Dual
“DIGIC 4”, approx. 100% viewfinder coverage, high-precision and highspeed 19-point AF (all cross-type), approx. 8 fps continuous shooting,
Live View shooting, and Full HD (Full High-Definition) movie shooting.
The camera is highly responsive to any shooting situation at anytime,
provides many features for demanding shoots, and expands shooting
possibilities with system accessories.
Take a Few Test Shots to Familiarize Yourself with the
Camera
With a digital camera, you can immediately view the image you have
captured. While reading this manual, take a few test shots and see how
they come out. You can then better understand the camera.
To avoid botched pictures and accidents, first read the Safety Warnings
(p.277,278) and Handling Precautions (p.12,13).

images of people and certain subjects for anything but private
enjoyment. Also be aware that certain public performances, exhibitions,
etc., may prohibit photography even for private enjoyment.

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-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.
Do not block the mirror operation with your finger, etc. Doing so may cause a
malfunction.
Use a blower to 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-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 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.

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-in may 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 it to excessive force,
physical shock, or 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
C
Y
P
O
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.
Contacts
Cautions During Prolonged Use
If you use continuous shooting, Live View shooting, or movie shooting for a
prolonged 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.

It takes about 2.5 hours to fully recharge a completely exhausted
battery at 23°C / 73°F. The time required to recharge the battery
depends on the ambient temperature and battery’s charge level.
For safety reasons, recharging in low temperatures (5°C - 10°C /
41°F - 50°F) will take a longer time (up to 4 hours).
24
Charging 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-use or 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-shaped hole <
> is
aligned over the blue sticker on the battery. If the battery is
exhausted, attach the cover in the opposite orientation.
Y
P
O
When not 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.
C
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-available plug 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.
Check the battery’s recharge performance (p.246) and purchase a
new battery.
If the battery’s remaining capacity (p.246) is 94% or higher, the battery
will not be recharged.
After disconnecting the charger’s power plug, do not touch the charger
power plug (prongs) for at least 3 sec.
The charger cannot charge any battery other than Battery Pack LP-E6.
25
Installing and Removing the Battery

The figures above are based on a fully-charged Battery Pack LP-E6, no Live
View shooting, and CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) testing
standards.
Battery Grip BG-E7 approximately doubles the number of possible shots with
two LP-E6 batteries installed. With size-AA/LR6 alkaline batteries, the number
of possible shots at 23°C / 73°F is approx. 400 shots without flash use and
approx. 300 shots with 50% flash use.
C
The number of possible shots will decrease with any of the following
operations:
• Pressing the shutter button halfway for a prolonged period.
• Often activating only the AF without taking a picture.
• Using the LCD monitor often.
• Using the lens Image Stabilizer.
The lens operation is powered by the camera’s battery. Depending on
the lens used, the number of possible shots may be lower.
For battery life with Live View shooting, see page 137.
See the [7 Battery info.] menu to further check the battery’s condition
(p.246).
If size-AA/LR6 batteries are used in Battery Grip BG-E7, a four-level
indicator will be displayed. ([

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.84).
If a card-related error 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 computer, transfer all
the images and then format the card (p.45). The card may then return to
normal.
When holding a hard disk-type card, always hold its sides. You may
damage the card by holding its flat surfaces. Compared to CF cards, hard
disk-type cards 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.

You can prevent the lens from extending
out while you are carrying it around. Set
the zoom ring to the 18mm wide-angle
end, then slide the zoom ring lock lever
to <LOCK>. The zoom ring can be
locked only at the wide-angle end.
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
When you use the IS lens’ built-in Image Stabilizer, camera shake is
corrected to obtain a less blurred shot. The procedure explained here is
based on the EF-S15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM lens as an example.

C
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 EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS 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 lens 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-S15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EFS18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, and EF-S18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS 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
AF points in the viewfinder look

then press the shutter button halfway (p.96). If you are too close to the
subject, move away and try again.
Sometimes multiple AF points light up simultaneously.
All those AF points have achieved focus. As long as the AF point
covering the desired subject lights up, you can take the picture.
The beeper continues to beep softly. (The focus confirmation

Pressing the shutter button halfway does not focus the subject.
If the focus mode switch on the lens is set to <MF> (Manual Focus), set it
to <AF> (Auto Focus).
C
Although it is daylight, the flash popped up.
For a backlit subject, the flash may pop up to help reduce the subject’s
dark shadow.
In low light, the built-in flash fired a series of flashes.
Pressing the shutter button halfway may trigger the built-in flash to fire a
series of flashes to assist autofocusing. This is called the AF-assist
beam. 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
barrel. 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.

1 Full 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> (Full Auto) mode, while you press the shutter button
halfway to focus a still subject, the focus will be locked. You can then
recompose the shot and press the shutter button completely to take the
picture. This is called “focus lock”.

Shooting a Moving Subject
Y
P
O
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.

Figures for the file size, possible shots, and maximum burst during continuous
shooting are based on Canon’s testing standards (ISO 100 and Standard
Picture Style) using a 8 GB card. These figures will vary depending on the
subject, card brand, ISO speed, Picture Style, Custom Functions, etc.
The maximum burst applies to high-speed continuous shooting. Figures in
parentheses apply to an Ultra DMA (UDMA), 128 GB card based on Canon’s
testing standards.
If you select both RAW and JPEG, the same image will be recorded
simultaneously to the card in both types at the selected image-recording
quality. The two images will be saved in the same folder with the same
file numbers (file extension .JPG for JPEG and .CR2 for RAW).
The icons are read as follows: 1 (RAW), 41 (Medium RAW),
61 (Small RAW), JPEG, 7 (Fine), 8 (Normal), 3 (Large), 4
(Medium), and 6 (Small).

3 Setting the Image-recording Quality
About RAW
A RAW image is raw data output by the image sensor converted to
digital data. It is recorded to the card as is, and you can select the
quality as follows: 1, 41, or 61.
A 1 image can be processed with [3 RAW image processing]
menu (p.192) and saved as a JPEG image. (41 and 61
images cannot be processed with the camera.) While the RAW image
itself does not change, you can process the RAW image according to
different conditions to create any number of JPEG images from it.
With all RAW images, you can use Digital Photo Professional (provided
software, p.282) to make various adjustments and then generate a
JPEG, TIFF, etc., image incorporating those adjustments.
Y
P
O
Commercially-available software might not be able to display RAW images.
Using the provided software is recommended.
Maximum Burst During Continuous Shooting
C
The maximum burst is displayed on the
bottom right in the viewfinder.
If the maximum burst for continuous shooting
is 99 or higher, “99” will be displayed.
The maximum burst is displayed even when a card is not inserted in the
camera. Make sure that a card is loaded before taking a picture.
If [8C.Fn II -2: High ISO speed noise reduction] is set to [2: High],
the maximum burst will be greatly reduced (p.224).
If the viewfinder displays “99” for the maximum burst, it means the maximum
burst is 99 or higher. If the maximum burst decreases to 98 or lower and the
internal buffer memory becomes full, “buSY” will be displayed in the
viewfinder and on the LCD panel and shooting will be disabled temporarily.
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-looking colors in the pictures.
You can also use the [2 White balance] menu to set the white balance.
72
B: Setting the White BalanceN
O Custom White Balance
Custom white balance enables you to manually set the white balance
for a specific light source for better accuracy. Do this procedure under
the actual light source to be used.

White Balance Auto Bracketing
With just one shot, three images having a different color tone can be recorded
simultaneously. Based on the color temperature of the current white balance
setting, the image will be bracketed with a blue/amber bias or magenta/green
bias. This is called white balance bracketing (WB-BKT). White balance
bracketing is possible up to ±3 levels in single-level increments.

During WB bracketing, the maximum burst for continuous shooting will be
lower and the number of possible shots will also decrease to one-third the
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.

3 Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction
About the Lens Correction Data
The camera already contains lens peripheral illumination correction
data for about 25 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.
When Updating Firmware 1.x.x to 2.x.x:
When you update the firmware from version 1.x.x to 2.x.x, any “Lens
correction data” you registered in the camera with EOS Utility (provided
software) will be overwritten with the updated firmware’s Lens correction
data. If necessary, use EOS Utility to register your Lens correction data
again.
C

P
O
For JPEG images already captured, lens peripheral illumination
correction cannot be applied.
Depending on shooting conditions, noise might appear on the image
periphery.
When using a third-party lens, setting the correction to [Disable] is
recommended, even if [Correction data available] is displayed.
Lens peripheral illumination 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.

As with “100EOS7D” 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 higher one-up folder number is created automatically. Also, if
manual reset (p.85) 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 upper- or lower-case
letters from A to Z, numerals, and an underscore “_”. There can be no space in
the folder name. Also, folder names cannot have the same three-digit number
such as “100ABC_D” and “100W_XYZ” even if the letters are different.
81
3 Changing the File Name
The file name has four alphanumeric
characters followed by a four-digit image
(Ex.) IMG_10001.JPG
number (p.84) and extension. The first four
characters will be “IMG_” by default, but you
can change this.
With “User setting1”, you can change and register the four characters
as desired. With “User setting2”, if you register three characters, the
fourth character from the left will be appended automatically to indicate
the image size.

the image-recording quality characters is as follows:
“***L” = 73, 83, 1
“***M” = 74, 84, 41
“***S” = 76, 86, 61
When the image is transferred to a personal computer, the automatically
appended fourth character will be included. You can then see the image size
without having to open the image. RAW or JPEG images can be
distinguished with the extension.
The first character cannot be an underscore “_”.
The extension will be “.JPG” for JPEG images, “.CR2” for RAW images,
and “.MOV” for movies.
When you shoot a movie with User setting2, the file name’s fourth
character will be an underscore “_”.

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-formatted card each time.

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 Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21). Post-processing of
the image with software will therefore be required.
If the captured still photo 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 in the CD-ROM.

AF Area Selection Modes
The AF areas are explained starting with the smallest one.
(1) Spot AF (Manual selection) C.Fn III -6
Although this is the same as single-point AF, the
selected AF point <O> covers a smaller pinpoint
area to focus. Effective for pinpoint focusing
overlapping subjects such as an animal in a cage.
Since Spot AF covers a very small area, focusing
might be difficult during hand-held shooting or for a
moving subject.

(3) AF point expansion (Manual selection) C.Fn III -6
The manually-selected AF point <S> and adjacent AF points <w> are
used to focus. Effective when it is difficult to track a moving subject with
just one AF point.
With AI Servo AF, the manually-selected AF point <S> must focustrack the subject first. However, it is easier to focus the target subject
than with Zone AF.
With One-Shot AF, when focus is achieved with the expanded AF point,
the expanded AF point <S> will also be displayed along with the
manually-selected AF point <S>.
93
AF Area Selection Modes
(4) Zone AF (Manual selection of zone)
The 19 AF points are divided into five zones for focusing. All the AF
points in the selected zone are used for the automatic selection of the
AF point. It makes achieving focus easier than with single-point AF or
AF point expansion and it is effective for moving subjects. However,
since it is inclined to focus the nearest subject, focusing a specific target
is harder than with single-point AF or AF point expansion.
With One-Shot AF, the AF point <S> which achieved focus will be
displayed.
Y
P
O
(5) 19-point AF auto selection
All the AF points are used to focus. Automatically set in fully-automatic
modes (1/C).
With One-Shot AF, pressing the shutter button
halfway will display the AF point(s) <S> which
achieved focus. If multiple AF points are displayed,
it means they all have achieved focus. This mode
tends to focus the nearest subject.
C
With AI Servo AF, the manually-selected (p.92) AF
point <S> is used first to achieve focus. This
cannot be set in fully-automatic modes (1/C).
With 19-point AF and Zone AF, the active AF point will keep switching to
track the subject in AI Servo AF mode. However, under certain shooting
conditions (such as when the subject is small), it might not be able to track
the subject. Also, in low temperatures, the tracking response is slower.

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
Very low-contrast subjects
(Example: Blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.)
Subjects in very low light
Extremely backlit or reflective subjects
(Example: Car with a highly 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.)
In such cases, do one of the following:
(1) With One-Shot AF, focus an object at the same distance as the
subject and lock the focus before recomposing (p.54).
(2) Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.

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-timer
delay time + bulb exposure time). If you let go of the shutter button
during the self-timer countdown, there will be a shutter-release sound.
However, 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-timer is set to <Q> or <k>, 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-80N3 or Timer
Remote Controller TC-80N3 (both sold separately) is recommended.
You can also lockup the mirror and shoot with a remote controller (sold

Flash mode
You can select the flash mode to suit your desired flash shooting.
[E-TTL II] is the standard mode of
EX-series Speedlites for automatic
flash shooting.
[Manual flash] is for advanced users
who want to set the [Flash output]
(1/1 to 1/128) themselves.
[MULTI flash] is for advanced users
who want to set the [Flash output],
[Frequency], and [Flash count]
themselves.
Regarding other flash modes, refer to
your Speedlite’s instruction manual.
C
To prevent the flash from overheating and degrading, avoid firing the MULTI
flash more than 10 consecutive times. If you fire the flash 10 times, allow the
flash to rest for at least 10 min. before firing the flash again. Some EX-series
Speedlites will automatically stop firing after 10 times to protect the flash. If
this happens, let the flash rest for at least 15 min.
120
3 Setting the FlashN
Shutter sync.
Normally, set this to [1st curtain] so that the flash fires immediately
after the exposure starts.
If [2nd curtain] is set, the flash will fire right before the exposure
ends. When this is combined with a slow sync speed, you can create
a trail of light such as from car headlights at night. With 2nd curtain
sync, two flashes will be fired, once when you press the shutter
button completely, and once immediately before the exposure ends.
However, with shutter speeds faster than 1/30 sec., the 1st curtain
sync will automatically take effect.
If an external Speedlite is attached, you can also set [Hi-speed]. For
details, see the Speedlite’s instruction manual.

EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlites
Basically operates like a built-in flash for easy operation.
When an EX-series Speedlite (sold separately) is attached to the
camera, almost all the autoflash control is done by the camera. In other
words, it is like a high-output flash attached externally in place of the
built-in flash.
For detailed instructions, see the EX-series Speedlite’s instruction
manual. This camera is a Type-A camera that can use all the features
of EX-series Speedlites.

Using Non-Canon Flash Units
Sync Speed
The camera can synchronize with non-Canon compact flash units at 1/
250 sec. and slower speeds. With large studio flash units, since the
flash duration is longer than compact flash units, 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.
The camera’s PC terminal has no
polarity. You can connect any sync
cord regardless of its polarity.

Cautions for Live View shooting
C
If you use a non-Canon flash with Live View shooting, set [z Silent
shoot.] to [Disable] (p.141). 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-voltage flash 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.

About the <E> icon and camera’s internal temperature increase
When you shoot continuously with the Live View function for a long
period or in high temperatures, the camera’s internal temperature may
increase and the <E> warning icon will appear on the screen. Note that
if you shoot with the Live View function for a long period in high
temperatures, the <E> warning icon will appear earlier. Turn off the
camera when not shooting images.
If you shoot with the Live View function while the <E> warning icon is
displayed, the image quality of still photos may be degraded. You should
stop Live View shooting and allow the camera to rest until the camera’s
internal temperature decreases.
If Live View shooting continues while the <E> warning icon is displayed,
the camera’s internal temperature will further increase and Live View
shooting may stop automatically. Live View shooting will be disabled until
the camera’s internal temperature decreases. Turn off the camera and
allow the camera to rest for a while.

Live View Shooting Cautions
Notes About the Live View Image
Under low 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, 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 [6 LCD brightness] to a bright setting, noise
or irregular colors may appear in the Live View image. However, the
noise or irregular colors will not be recorded in the captured image.
When you magnify the image, the image sharpness may look more
pronounced than it really is.

Live View Shooting Cautions
Notes About the Shooting Results
When you shoot continuously with the Live View function 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. This is to prevent image
degradation.
Live View shooting in high temperatures and at high ISO speeds may
cause noise or irregular colors.
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (horizontal banding, dots of
light, etc.) may appear.
If you take the picture during magnified view, 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
image will be captured in the normal view.

compensation or flash exposure compensation has been set.
Notes About Lenses and Flash
The focus preset feature on telephoto lenses cannot be used.

Notes on Movie Shooting
Recording and Image Quality
If the attached lens has an Image Stabilizer, the Image Stabilizer will
operate at all times even if you do not press the shutter button halfway.
The Image Stabilizer may cause the total movie shooting time or the
number of possible shots to decrease. If you use a tripod or if the Image
Stabilizer is not necessary, you should set the IS switch to <2>.
The camera’s built-in microphone will also pick up camera operation
noise. If you use a commercially-available external microphone, you can
prevent (or reduce) these noises from being recorded.
Do not connect the external microphone IN terminal to anything other
than an external microphone.
Autofocusing during movie shooting is not recommended since it might
momentarily throw the focus way off or change the exposure. Even if the
AF mode has been set to [Quick mode], it will switch to the Live mode
during movie shooting.
If movie shooting is not possible due to the insufficient remaining capacity of
the card, the movie shooting remaining time (p.156) will be displayed in red.
If you use a card having a slow writing speed, a five-level
indicator might appear on the right of the screen during movie
shooting. It indicates how much data has not yet been written to
the card (remaining capacity of the internal buffer memory). The
slower the card, the faster the indicator will climb upward. If the
indicator becomes full, movie shooting will stop automatically.

If you shoot movies while the <E> icon is displayed, the image quality of
the movies will not be degraded. However, if you shoot still photos while
the <E> warning icon is displayed, the image quality of still photos may
be degraded. You should stop movie shooting and allow the camera to
rest until the camera’s internal temperature decreases.
If movie shooting continues while the <E> warning icon is displayed, the

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

Sample Histograms
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

indicates how many pixels exist for each
brightness level. The more pixels there are
toward the left, the darker the image. And the

[RGB] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the distribution of each primary
color’s brightness level in the image (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

k Enjoying Movies
Basically, there are the following three ways to playback the movies you
shot.
Playback on a TV set
(p.184, 185)
Use the provided AV cable or an HDMI
Cable HTC-100 (sold separately) to
connect the camera to a TV set. Then
you can playback the captured movies
and photos on the TV.
If you have a High-Definition TV set and
connect your camera to it with an HDMI
cable, you can watch Full HD (Full HighDefinition 1920x1080) and HD (HighDefinition 1280x720) movies with higher
image quality.
Y
P
O
Movies on a card can be played only by devices compatible with MOV
files.
Since hard disk recorders do not have an HDMI IN terminal, the camera
cannot be connected with an HDMI cable.
Even if the camera is connected to a hard disk recorder with a USB
cable, movies and photos cannot be played nor saved.
C
Playback on the Camera’s LCD Monitor
(p.179-183)
You can playback the movie on the
camera’s LCD monitor and even edit out
the first and last scenes. You can also
playback the photos and movies
recorded in the card as an automatic
slide show.
A movie edited with a personal computer cannot be rewritten to the card and
played back with the camera.
177
k Enjoying Movies
Playback and Editing with a Personal Computer
(p.282)
The movie files recorded on the card can
be transferred to a personal computer
and played with ImageBrowser EX
(provided software).
To have the movie play back smoothly on a personal computer, use a
high-performance personal computer. Regarding the computer hardware
requirements for ImageBrowser EX, refer to the PDF file ImageBrowser
EX User Guide.
If you want to use commercially-available software to play back or edit
the movies, be sure it is compatible with MOV files. For details on
commercially-available software, contact the software maker.

About peripheral illumination correction, distortion
correction, and chromatic aberration correction
To execute peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction, and
chromatic aberration correction with the camera, the data of the lens used
for the shot must be registered in the camera. If the lens data has not been
registered in the camera, use EOS Utility (provided software, p.282) to
register the lens data.
Distortion correction and chromatic aberration correction are not possible
for RAW images shot with an Extender attached.
Processing RAW images in the camera will not produce the same results
as processing RAW images with Digital Photo Professional.
Even if image verification data (p.232) is appended to the RAW image,
the image verification data is not appended to the JPEG image after
processing.

Sensor Cleaning
Y
P
O
The camera has a Self Cleaning Sensor Unit attached
to the image sensor’s front layer (low-pass filter) 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).
C
About smear adhering to the front of the sensor
Besides dust entering the camera from outside, in rare cases lubricant
from the camera’s internal parts may adhere to the front of the sensor.
In case visible spots still remain after the automatic sensor cleaning,
having the sensor cleaned by a Canon Service Center is recommended.
Even while the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit is operating, you can
press the shutter button halfway to interrupt the cleaning and start
shooting immediately.
199
f Automatic Sensor Cleaning
Whenever you set the power switch to <1> or <2>, the Self
Cleaning Sensor Unit operates to automatically shake off the dust on
the front of the sensor. Normally, you need not pay attention to this
operation. However, you can execute the sensor cleaning at anytime as
well as disable it.

For best results, do the sensor cleaning while the camera bottom is
placed on a table or other flat surface.
Even if you repeat the sensor cleaning, the result will not improve that
much. Right after the sensor cleaning is finished, the [Clean nowf]
option will remain disabled temporarily.
Disabling Automatic Sensor Cleaning
In step 2, select [Auto cleaningf] and set it to [Disable].
X The sensor cleaning will no longer be executed when you set the
power switch to <1> or <2>.

3 Appending Dust Delete DataN
Normally, the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit will eliminate most of the dust
that might be visible on captured images. However, in case visible dust
still remains, you can append the Dust Delete Data to the image to later
erase the dust spots. The Dust Delete Data is used by Digital Photo
Professional (provided software) to erase the dust spots automatically.
Preparation
Get a solid-white object (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

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 provided 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-white object 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.

3 Manual 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.

size-AA/LR6 batteries is attached, manual sensor cleaning will not be
possible.
203
3 Manual 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
damage the sensor or the spray gas can freeze on the sensor.
If smear that cannot be removed with a blower remains, having the
sensor cleaned by a Canon Service Center is recommended.

Flash sync. speed in Av mode
0: Auto
Normally, the sync speed will be set automatically within 1/250 sec. to
30 sec. High-speed sync can also take effect.
1: 1/250-1/60 sec. auto
When flash is used with aperture-priority AE (f), this prevents a slow
flash-sync speed from being set automatically in low-light conditions. It
is effective for preventing subject blur and camera shake. However,
while the subject will be properly exposed with the flash, the background
will come out dark.
2: 1/250 sec. (fixed)
The flash-sync speed is fixed to 1/250 sec. This more effectively
prevents subject blur and camera shake than with setting 1. However,
the background will come out darker than with setting 1.

Long exposure noise reduction
0: Off
1: Auto
For 1 sec. or longer exposures, noise reduction is performed
automatically if noise typical of long exposures is detected. This [Auto]
setting is effective in most cases.
2: On
Noise reduction is performed for all exposures of 1 sec. or longer. The
[On] setting may be effective for noise that cannot be detected or
reduced with the [Auto] setting.
With setting 1 and 2, after the picture is taken, the noise reduction
process may take the same amount of time as the exposure. You cannot
take another picture until the noise reduction process is completed.
At ISO 1600 and higher, noise might be more pronounced with setting 2
than with setting 0 or 1.
With setting 2, if a long exposure is used during Live View shooting,
“BUSY” will be displayed and the Live View display will not appear until
the noise reduction process is completed. (You cannot take another
picture.)

High ISO speed noise reduction
Reduces the noise generated in the image. Although noise reduction is
applied at all ISO speeds, it is particularly effective at high ISO speeds. At
low ISO speeds, the noise in the shadow areas is further reduced. Change
the setting to suit the noise level.
0: Standard
2: High
1: Low
3: Disable
With setting 2, the maximum burst for continuous shooting will greatly
decrease.
If you playback a RAW or RAW+JPEG image with the camera or print
the image directly, the effect of the high ISO speed noise reduction may
look minimal. You can check the noise reduction effect or print noisereduced images with Digital Photo Professional (provided software).

Improves the highlight detail. The dynamic range is expanded between
the standard 18% gray and bright highlights. The gradation between the
grays and highlights becomes smoother.
With setting 1, the [Disable] setting automatically takes effect for the
Auto Lighting Optimizer (p.77) and it cannot be changed.
With setting 1, noise in the shadow areas may be slightly more than
usual.

AI Servo tracking sensitivity
C
During focusing in AI Servo AF mode, the AF sensitivity for tracking
subjects (or obstacles) moving into AF points can be set to one of five
levels.
If it is set toward [Slow], interruptions by any obstacles will be less
disruptive. It makes it easier to keep tracking the target subject.
If it is set toward [Fast], it will be easier to focus any subjects which
suddenly enter the picture from the side. Convenient when you want to
successively photograph multiple subjects located at random distances.

AI Servo 1st/2nd image priority
For the AI Servo AF and continuous shooting modes, you can change the
Servo’s operation characteristics and shutter-release timing.
0: AF priority/Tracking priority
For the first shot, focusing the subject is given priority. For the 2nd and
following shots during continuous shooting, focus-tracking of the subject
is given priority.
1: AF priority/Drive speed priority
For the first shot, focusing the subject is given priority. During continuous
shooting, the continuous shooting speed is given priority over the focustracking of the subject.
2: Release/Drive speed priority
For the first shot, shutter release is given priority over focusing the
subject. During continuous shooting, the continuous shooting speed is
given priority more than with setting 1.

AI Servo AF tracking method
In the AI Servo AF mode while you are focus-tracking a subject, the camera
can either continue focusing the target subject even if a closer subject
(closer than at the main focus point) suddenly appears in the picture, or the
camera can switch to focus the closer subject.
* Main focus point: With 19-point AF auto selection and AF point expansion, this is the
first AF point which started the focusing. With Zone AF, this is the
active AF point.
0: Main focus point priority
The active AF point will switch to the main focus point and start focusing
the closer subject. Convenient when you always want to focus the
closest subject.
1: Continuous AF track priority
Any closer subject appearing in the picture will be ignored as an
obstruction. The main focus point does not take priority, so the tracking
of the target subject can continue and switch to an adjacent AF point
based on the preceding focusing result. Convenient when obstacles
such as telephone poles go in front of the target subject.

Troubleshooting Guide
If a problem occurs, first refer to this Troubleshooting Guide. If this
Troubleshooting Guide does not resolve the problem, contact your
dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
Power-Related Problems
The battery pack does not recharge.
If the battery’s remaining capacity (p.246) is 94% or higher, the battery
will not be recharged.
Do not recharge any battery pack other than genuine Canon Battery Pack LP-E6.
The charger’s lamp blinks at high speed.
If there is a problem with the battery charger or battery pack or if
communication with the battery pack (non-Canon battery packs) is not
possible, the protective circuit will terminate the charging and the orange
lamp will blink quickly at a regular interval. If there is a problem with the
battery charger or battery pack, unplug the charger’s power plug from the
power outlet. Detach and reattach the battery pack to the charger. Wait 2
to 3 minutes, then reconnect the power plug to the power outlet. If the
problem persists, contact your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
C
Y
P
O
The charger’s lamp does not blink.
If the internal temperature of the battery pack attached to the charger is
high, the charger will not charge the battery for safety reasons (lamp
off). During the charging, if the battery’s temperature becomes high for
any reason, the charging will stop automatically (lamp blinks). When the
battery temperature goes down, the charging will resume automatically.
The camera does not operate even when the power switch is set to <1>.
The battery is not properly installed in the camera (p.26).
Recharge the battery (p.24).
Make sure the battery compartment cover is closed (p.26).
Make sure the card slot cover is closed (p.29).
261
Troubleshooting Guide
The access lamp still blinks even when the power switch is set to <2>.
If the power is cut off while an image is being recorded to the card, the
access lamp will still continue to light/blink for a few seconds. When
the image recording is completed, the power will turn off automatically.
The battery becomes exhausted quickly.
Use a fully-charged battery (p.24).
The battery performance might have degraded. See the [7 Battery
info.] menu to check the battery’s performance level (p.246). If the
battery performance is poor, replace the battery pack with a new one.
If you keep displaying the Quick Control screen (p.38) or shooting Live
View shooting or movie shooting (p.135, 153) for a prolonged period,
the number of possible shots will decrease.
Y
P
O
The camera turns off by itself.
Auto power off is in effect. If you do not want auto power off to take
effect, set [5 Auto power off] to [Off].
C
Shooting-Related Problems
No images can be shot or recorded.
The card is not properly inserted (p.29).
If the card is full, replace the card or delete unnecessary images to
make room (p.29, 187).
If you try to focus in One-Shot AF mode while the focus confirmation
light <o> in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be taken. Press the
shutter button halfway again to focus, or focus manually (p.35, 96).
The viewfinder is dark.
Install a recharged battery pack in the camera (p.26).
262
Troubleshooting Guide
The image is out of focus.
Set the lens focus mode switch to <AF> (p.31).
To prevent camera shake, hold the camera still and press the shutter
button gently (p.34, 35).
If the lens has an Image Stabilizer, set the IS switch to <1>.
The card cannot be used.
If a card error message is displayed, see page 30 or 267.
The maximum burst during continuous shooting is lower.
Set [8C.Fn II -2: High ISO speed noise reduction] to one of the
following settings: [Standard/Low/Disable]. If it is set to [High], the
maximum burst during continuous shooting will decrease (p.224).
If you shoot a subject which has fine detail (field of grass, etc.), the file
size will be larger and the actual maximum burst will be lower than the
number mentioned on page 61.
C
ISO 100 cannot be set.
Y
P
O
If [8C.Fn II -3: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], ISO 100
cannot be set. If [Disable] is set, ISO 100 can be set (p.225).
When I use the <f> mode with flash, the shutter speed becomes slow.
If you shoot at night when the background is dark, the shutter speed
becomes slow automatically (slow-sync shooting) so that both the
subject and background are properly exposed. If you do not want a
slow shutter speed to be set, set [8C.Fn I -7: Flash sync. speed in
Av mode] to 1 or 2 (p.223).
The built-in flash does not fire.
If you shoot continuously with the built-in flash at short intervals, the
flash might stop operating to protect the flash unit.
263
Troubleshooting Guide
The external flash does not fire.
Make sure the external flash (or PC sync cord) is securely attached to
the camera.
If you use a non-Canon flash with Live View shooting, set the [z
Silent shoot.] menu to [Disable] (p.141).
The camera makes a noise when it is shaken.
The built-in flash’s pop-up mechanism moves slightly. This is normal.
The shutter makes two shooting sounds during Live View shooting.
If you use flash, the shutter will make two sounds each time you shoot
(p.137).
Y
P
O
Live View shooting is not possible.
For Live View shooting, use a memory card (a hard disk-type card is
not recommended). A hard disk-type card requires a lower
temperature range for operation than normal memory cards. If the
temperature gets too high, the Live View shooting may stop
temporarily to prevent damage to the card’s hard disk. When the
camera’s internal temperature decreases, you can resume Live View
shooting (p.137).
C
The camera button/dial’s function has changed.
Check the setting with [8C.Fn IV -1: Custom Controls] (p.231).
The movie shooting terminates by itself.
If the card’s writing speed is slow, movie shooting may stop
automatically. Use a card with a read/write speed of at least 8 MB per
sec. To find out the card’s read/write speed, see the card
manufacturer’s Web site.
If the movie file size reaches 4 GB or if the movie recording time
reaches 29 min. 59 sec., movie shooting will stop automatically.
264
Troubleshooting Guide
When the movie is played, camera operation noise can be heard.
If you operate the camera’s dial or lens during movie shooting, the
respective operation noise will also be recorded. Use an external
microphone (commercially available) (p.163).
Display & Operation Problems
In the viewfinder, the AF point display speed is slow.
In low temperatures, the display speed of the AF points may become
slower due to the AF point display device’s (liquid crystal)
characteristics. The display speed will return to normal at room
temperature.
Y
P
O
The LCD monitor does not display a clear image.
If the LCD monitor is dirty, use a soft cloth to clean it.
In low or high temperatures, the LCD monitor display may seem slow
or might look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.
C
The menu screen shows few tabs and options.
In fully-automatic modes (1/C), some tabs and options are not
displayed. Set the shooting mode to d/s/f/a/F (p.40).
Part of the image blinks in black.
The [4 Highlight alert] menu option is set to [Enable] (p.167).
A red box is displayed on the image.
The [4 AF point disp.] menu option is set to [Enable] (p.167).
The file name’s first character is an underscore (“_”).
Set the color space to sRGB. If Adobe RGB is set, the first character
will be an underscore (p.86).
265
Troubleshooting Guide
The file numbering does not start from 0001.
If you use a card which already has images recorded, the file
numbering might start from the last image in the card (p.84).
The shooting date and time displayed is incorrect.
The correct date and time has not been set (p.43).
Check the time zone and daylight savings time (p.43).
No image appears on the TV screen.
Make sure the AV cable or HDMI cable’s plug is connected all the way
in (p.184, 185).
Set the video OUT format (NTSC/PAL) to the same video format as
the TV (p.259).
Use the AV cable that came with the camera (p.184).
Y
P
O
I cannot process the RAW image.
C
41 and 61 images cannot be processed with the camera.
Use the provided software Digital Photo Professional to process the
image (p.282).
I cannot resize the image.
6 JPEG images and 1/41/61 images cannot be
resized with the camera (p.197).
Printing-Related Problems
There are fewer printing effects than listed in the instruction manual.
What the screen displays may differ depending on the printer. This
instruction manual lists all the printing effects available (p.210).

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.

277
• 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.

O
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.
