HDR (High Dynamic Range) Shooting
5D Mk III
6D
You can shoot photos with a wide dynamic range where clipping in
highlights and shadows has been reduced, and photos that appear like
paintings. This is suited for scenes such as still-life and landscape. In
HDR shooting, one shot is taken using three images shot with different
exposures (negative exposure, standard exposure, positive exposure),
and they are combined into a single image automatically. Shot HDR
images are recorded in JPEG quality.
* HDR stands for High Dynamic Range.
1
Set to HDR.
 Select [HDR Mode] in the [Shooting menu], and in the dialog box
that appears, specify the required settings and click the [OK]
button.
C
 [Adjust dynamic range]: Sets the range of adjustment for dynamic
range. Select from [Disable HDR], [Auto], [±1 EV], [±2 EV], and
[±3 EV]. When selecting [Auto], the range of adjustment will be
set automatically depending on the image’s overall tonal range.
The higher the number, the wider the dynamic range will be.
 [Effect] 5D Mk III : Selects the finishing effect. For specific finishing
effects, refer to the pages about HDR (High Dynamic Range)
shooting in the Instruction Manual provided with your camera.
 [Continuous HDR]: If [1 shot only] is selected, HDR shooting is
cancelled automatically after you finish shooting. If you select
[Every shot], HDR shooting is continued until you select [Disable
HDR] in [Adjust dynamic range].
 [Save source images] 5D Mk III : To save the three shot images
and the completed HDR image, select [All images]. To save only

 The HDR mode cannot be set if you use any of the following
functions: AEB, white balance bracketing, Multi Shot Noise
Reduction, multiple exposures, flash exposure, bulb exposure,
or movie shooting.
 HDR shooting of a moving subject is not recommended because
the movement of the subject will appear as afterimages in the
merged image. HDR shooting is recommended for still subjects.
 In HDR shooting, 3 images are captured with different shutter
speeds set automatically. Therefore, even in Tv and M shooting
modes, the shutter speed will be shifted based on the shutter
speed set.
 To prevent camera shake, the ISO speed may be set higher than
usual.
 Auto image alignment may not work properly with repetitive
patterns (lattice, stripes, etc.) or flat, single-tone images.
 The color gradation of the sky or white walls may not be
reproduced correctly. Irregular colors or noise may appear.
 With HDR shooting, the three images will be merged after you
take a picture. Therefore, it will take a longer time to record the
HDR image than with normal shooting. During the merging of the
images, “BUSY” will be displayed on the camera and you cannot
take another picture until the merging is completed.
C

 Using a tripod is recommended. For handheld shooting, using a
fast shutter speed is recommended.
 If [Auto Image Align] is set to [Enable] and the HDR picture is
shot handheld, the edges of the photos will be cropped, lowering
the resolution slightly. Also, if the images cannot be aligned
properly due to camera shake, etc., auto image alignment may
not take effect. Note that when shooting with excessively bright
or dark exposure settings, auto image alignment may not work
properly.
 If you perform handheld HDR shooting while [Auto Image Align]
is set to [Disable], the 3 images may not be properly aligned and
the HDR effect may be minimal.
 HDR shooting under fluorescent or LED lighting may result in
unnatural color reproduction of the illuminated areas.
 In HDR mode, the options dimmed in the menu cannot be set.
Note that when you set HDR mode, for Auto Lighting Optimizer,
highlight tone priority, and exposure simulation, [Disable] will be
applied for shooting.

1D X
1D C .
• ALL-I (I-only): Compresses one frame at a time for recording.
Although the file size will be larger than with IPB,
the movie will be more suited for editing.
• IPB:
Compresses multiple frames at a time efficiently
for recording. Since the file size will be smaller
than with ALL-I, you can shoot longer.
 1D C
• MJPG:
When shooting a movie at 4K (4096 x 2160
pixels), Motion JPEG is used to compress the
movie recorded.
Each frame is compressed separately and
recorded without compression between frames.
The compression rate is therefore low. Since the
image size is large, the file size will also be large.
 When the 1D C is connected and Canon Log gamma is set
on the camera, the Canon Log gamma setting icon and [
]
(View Assist) button are displayed in the Remote Live View
window (p.81, p.82).
Canon Log gamma is a movie characteristic to attain wide
dynamic range. As a result, the image displayed in the Remote
Live View window has low contrast and is somewhat dark
compared to when a Picture Style is set.
If you click the [
] (View Assist) button, the movie image will
be displayed in the Remote Live View window with a
conspicuous characteristic. This makes it easier to check the
angle of view, details, etc.
Note that even if you click the [
] (View Assist) button, it will
not affect the movie recorded to the card. (The movie will be
recorded to the card with Canon Log gamma.)

Troubleshooting
Introduction
If EU is not operating correctly, see the items below.
EU and the camera are not communicating
Installation could not be completed correctly
 You cannot install software unless you are logged into an account
with Administrator privileges. Log in again into an account with
Administrator privileges. For how to log in and how to specify
Administrator settings, refer to the User’s Manual for the Macintosh
computer or for Mac OS X.
 Push the plug of the interface cable all the way into the socket. Loose
connections can cause faults and malfunctions (p.6).
 Check that the camera’s power switch is < ON > (p.7).
EU does not start up
 When 6D(W) 6D(WG) is connected to a computer with an interface
cable and the camera’s Wi-Fi setting is enabled, EU cannot start up.
Disable the Wi-Fi setting.
The card reader does not detect the SD card
 EU does not operate correctly on a computer if its system
requirements are not met. Use EU on a computer with compatible
system requirements (p.2).
 EU and the camera may not communicate normally with a cable other
than the EOS DIGITAL camera-dedicated Canon interface cable
(p.6).
C
 Depending on the card reader and computer OS used, SDXC cards
might not be correctly detected. In such a case, connect your camera
and computer with the provided interface cable, and transfer the
images to your computer.
Y
P
O
 Connect your camera and computer directly with the interface cable
provided with your camera. Do not connect the camera via a hub;
doing so may prevent EU and your camera from communicating
normally.
 If you connect multiple USB devices (not including the mouse or
keyboard) to your computer, the camera may not communicate
normally. If the camera cannot communicate normally, disconnect
USB devices other than the mouse or keyboard from your computer.
 Do not connect more than one camera to the same computer. Two or
more cameras may not operate normally.

 Do not connect your camera with the computer while performing
“Linked shooting” with a WFT series Wireless File Transmitter (sold
separately). Your camera may not operate normally.
 If there is insufficient charge left in the camera battery, the camera
cannot communicate with EU. Either replace with a fully charged
battery or use the AC adaptor kit (sold separately). Your computer
does not supply power to the camera through the interface cable.
72
Introduction
Communication between EU and the camera
disconnected
Contents
 If you do not perform any operation while the camera and computer
are connected, depending on the computer system, a confirmation
message may appear on the screen asking whether you wish to
continue communicating with the camera. If you do not perform an
operation while this message appears, communication with your
camera is discontinued and EU shuts down. In this case, turn the
camera’s power switch to < OFF >, then again to < ON > and start up
EU.
 Do not put your computer to sleep mode while it is connected to the
camera. If your computer goes into sleep mode, never disconnect the
interface cable while your computer is still in sleep mode. Always
wake your computer up while it is still connected to the camera.
Depending on the type of computer, disconnecting the interface cable
while your computer is in sleep mode could prevent the computer
from waking up correctly. Refer to the computer User’s Manual for
more information on sleep mode.
A non-Canon flash does not fire during
Remote Live View shooting
C
 When a non-Canon flash is mounted on the camera for Remote Live
View shooting, set [Silent shooting] in the camera to [Disable].
