Safety Warnings
Follow these safeguards and use the equipment properly to prevent injury, death,
and material damage.
Preventing Serious Injury or Death
• To prevent fire, excessive heat, chemical leakage, and explosions, follow the
safeguards below:
- Do not use any batteries, power sources, and accessories not specified in this
booklet. Do not use any home-made or modified batteries.
- Do not short-circuit, disassemble, or modify the battery pack or back-up battery. Do
not apply heat or apply solder to the battery pack or back-up battery. Do not expose
the battery pack or back-up battery to fire or water. And do not subject the battery
pack or back-up battery to strong physical shock.
- Do not install the battery pack or back-up battery in reversed polarity (+ –). Do not
mix new and old or different types of batteries.
- Do not recharge the battery pack outside the allowable ambient temperature range
of 0°C - 40°C (32°F - 104°F). Also, do not exceed the recharging time.
- Do not insert any foreign metallic objects into the electrical contacts of the camera,
accessories, connecting cables, etc.
• Keep the back-up battery away from children. If a child swallows the battery, consult a
physician immediately. (Battery chemicals may harm the stomach and intestines.)
• When disposing of a battery pack or back-up battery, insulate the electrical contacts
with tape to prevent contact with other metallic objects or batteries. This is to prevent
fire or an explosion.
• If excessive heat, smoke, or fumes are emitted during battery pack recharging,
immediately unplug the battery charger from the power outlet to stop the recharging
and prevent a fire.
• If the battery pack or back-up battery leaks, changes color, deforms, or emits smoke
or fumes, remove it immediately. Be careful not to get burned in the process.
• Prevent any battery leakage from contacting your eyes, skin, and clothing. It can
cause blindness or skin problems. If the battery leakage contacts your eyes, skin, or
clothing, flush the affected area with lots of clean water without rubbing it. See a
physician immediately.
• During the recharging, keep the equipment away from the reach of children. The cord
can accidentally choke the child or give an electrical shock.
• Do not leave any cords near a heat source. It can deform the cord or melt the
insulation and cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not fire the flash at someone driving a car. It may cause an accident.
• Do not fire the flash near a person’s eyes. It may impair the person’s vision. When
using flash to photograph an infant, keep at least 1 meter away.
• Before storing the camera or accessory when not in use, remove the battery pack and
disconnect the power plug. This is to prevent electrical shock, heat generation, and
fire.
• Do not use the equipment where there is flammable gas. This is to prevent an
explosion or fire.
6
• If you drop the equipment and the casing breaks open to expose the internal parts, do
not touch the internal parts due to the possibility of electrical shock.
• Do not disassemble or modify the equipment. High-voltage internal parts can cause
electrical shock.
• Do not look at the sun or an extremely bright light source through the camera or lens.
Doing so may damage your vision.
• Keep the camera from the reach of small children. The neck strap can accidentally
choke the child.
• Do not store the equipment in dusty or humid places. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Before using the camera inside an airplane or hospital, check if it is allowed.
Electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the plane’s
instruments or the hospital’s medical equipment.
• To prevent fire and electrical shock, follow the safeguards below:
- Always insert the power plug all the way in.
- Do not handle a power plug with wet hands.
- When unplugging a power plug, grasp and pull the plug instead of the cord.
- Do not scratch, cut, or excessively bend the cord or put a heavy object on the cord.
Also do not twist or tie the cords.
- Do not connect too many power plugs to the same power outlet.
- Do not use a cord whose insulation has been damaged.
• Occasionally unplug the power plug and use a dry cloth to clean off the dust around
the power outlet. If the surrounding is dusty, humid, or oily, the dust on the power outlet
may become moist and short-circuit the outlet to cause a fire.
Preventing Injury or Equipment Damage
• Do not leave equipment inside a car under the hot sun or near a heat source. The
equipment may become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not carry the camera around while it is attached to a tripod. Doing so may cause
injury. Also make sure the tripod is sturdy enough to support the camera and lens.
• Do not leave a lens or lens-attached camera under the sun without the lens cap
attached. Otherwise, the lens may concentrate the sun’s rays and cause a fire.
• Do not cover or wrap the battery-recharging apparatus with a cloth. Doing so may trap
heat within and cause the casing to deform or catch fire.
• If you drop the camera in water or if water or metal fragments enter inside the camera,
promptly remove the battery pack and back-up battery. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Do not use or leave the battery pack or back-up battery in a hot environment. Doing so
may cause battery leakage or a shorter battery life. The battery pack or back-up
battery can also become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the equipment.
Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard.
If the product does not work properly or requires repair, contact
your dealer or your nearest Canon Service Center.

Handling Precautions
Camera Care
¡ This camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physical
shock.
¡ The camera is not waterproof and cannot be used underwater. If you
accidentally drop the camera into water, promptly consult your nearest
Canon Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry cloth. If the
camera has been exposed to salty air, wipe with a well-wrung wet cloth.
¡ Never leave the camera near anything having a strong magnetic field such
as a magnet or electric motor. Also avoid using or leaving the camera near
anything emitting strong radio waves such as a large antenna. Strong
magnetic fields can cause camera misoperation or destroy image data.
¡ Do not leave the camera in excessive heat such as in a car in direct sunlight.
High temperatures can cause the camera to malfunction.
¡ The camera contains precision electronic circuitry. Never attempt to
disassemble the camera yourself.
¡ Use a blower to blow away dust on the lens, viewfinder, mirror, and focusing
screen. Do not use cleaners that contain organic solvents to clean the
camera body or lens.For stubborn dirt, take the camera to a Canon Service
Center.
¡ Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your fingers. This is to
prevent the contacts from corroding. Corroded contacts can cause camera
misoperation.
¡ If the camera is suddenly brought in from the cold into a warm room,
condensation may form on the camera and internal parts. To prevent
condensation, first put the camera in a sealed plastic bag and let it adjust to
the warmer temperature before taking it out of the bag.
¡ If condensation forms on the camera, do not use the camera. This is to avoid
damaging the camera. If this occurs, remove the lens, CF card and battery
from the camera, then 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 in a
darkroom or chemical lab.
¡ If the camera has not been used for an extended period, test all its functions
before using the camera. If you have not used the camera for some time or if
there is an important shoot coming up, have the camera checked by your
Canon dealer or check the camera yourself and make sure it is working
properly.
8
Handling Precautions
LCD Panel and LCD Monitor
¡ Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision
technology with over 99.99% active pixels, there might be a few dead pixels
among the remaining 0.01% or less pixels. Dead pixels displaying only black
or red, etc., are not a malfunction. They do not affect the images recorded.
¡ At low temperatures, the liquid-crystal display response may become slower.
And at high temperatures, the display may blacken. In either case, the
display will return to normal at room temperature.
CF Card
¡ The CF card is a precision device. Do not drop the memory card or subject it
to vibration. Doing so could damage the images recorded on them.
¡ Do not store or use a memory card near anything having a strong magnetic
field such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to
having static electricity. Otherwise, the images recorded on the CF card
might be lost.
¡ Do not leave memory cards in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Doing so
can warp the cards and make them unusable.
¡ Do not spill any liquid onto the CF card.
¡ Always store your CF cards in a case to protect the data stored on them.
¡ Non-Canon CF cards may not be able to record and playback images. Using
Canon CF cards is recommended.
¡ Do not bend the card or subject it to any excessive force or physical shock.
¡ Do not store CF cards in hot, dusty, or humid locations.

¡ The number of possible shots and maximum burst (p.54) apply to a Canon
512MB CF card.
¡ The single image size, number of possible shots, and maximum burst during
continuous shooting are based on Canon’s testing standards (ISO 100 with
[Parameter 1] set). The actual single image size, number of possible shots,
and maximum burst will vary depending on the subject, shooting mode, ISO
speed, parameters, etc.
¡ In the case of monochrome images (p.65), the file size will be smaller so the
number of possible shots will be higher.
¡ On the top LCD panel, you can check the remaining number of images the CF
card can record.
¡ A different image-recording quality can be set separately for the Basic Zone
modes and Creative Zone modes.
About the RAW
The RAW assumes that the image will undergo post-processing with a
personal computer. Special knowledge is required, but you can use the
bundled software to obtain the optimum effect.
Image processing refers to adjusting the RAW image’s white balance,
contrast, etc., to create the desired image.
Note that RAW images will not work with direct printing or DPOF.

Max. Burst During Continuous Shooting
The maximum burst during continuous shooting depends on the imagerecording quality. The approx. maximum burst during continuous
shooting is indicated below for each image-recording quality.
Note that with high-speed CF cards, the maximum burst may be higher
than shown in the table below depending on the shooting conditions.

card is not in the camera. Therefore, before shooting, make sure that a
CF card is installed in the camera.
54
Z Setting the ISO SpeedN
The ISO speed is a numeric indication of the sensitivity to light. A higher
ISO speed number indicates a higher sensitivity to light. Therefore, a
high ISO speed is suited for low light and moving subjects. However, the
image may look more grainy with noise, etc. On the other hand, a low
ISO speed is not suited for low light or action shots, but the image will
look finer. The camera can be set between ISO 100 and 1600 in 1-stop
increments.
ISO Speed in the Basic Zone Modes
The ISO speed is set automatically within ISO 100-400.
ISO Speed in the Creative Zone Modes
You can set the ISO speed to [100] [200] [400] [800] [1600].

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

About Adobe RGB
This is mainly used for commercial printing and other industrial
uses.This setting is not recommended if you do not know about image
processing, Adobe RGB, and Design rule for Camera File System 2.0
(Exif 2.21).
Since the image will look very subdued in an 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 be required.
¡ If the image is captured with the color space set to Adobe RGB, the file
name will start with “_MG_” (first character is an underscore).
¡ The ICC profile is not appended. The ICC profile is explained in the
Software Instruction Manual (PDF).

AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
While you press the shutter
button halfway, the camera
focuses continuously.
¡ This AF mode is for moving subjects when
the focusing distance keeps changing.
s With predictive AF*, the camera can also
focus track a subject which steadily
approaches or retreats from the camera.

In a Creative Zone mode (except <8>), the beeper will not sound even when
focus is achieved. Also, the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will not light.
71
f Selecting the AF ModeN
* About Predictive AF
If the subject approaches or retreats from the camera at a constant rate,
the camera tracks the subject and predicts the focusing distance
immediately before the picture is taken. This is for obtaining correct
focus at the moment of exposure.
¡ When the AF point selection is automatic, the camera first uses the
center AF point to focus. During autofocusing, if the subject moves
away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long as
the subject is covered by another AF point.
¡ With a manually selected AF point, the selected AF point will focus
track the subject.
AI Focus AF for Automatic Switching of AF Mode
AI Focus AF switches the AF mode from
One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF
automatically if the still subject starts
moving.
After the subject is focused in the OneShot AF mode, if the subject starts
moving, the camera will detect the
movement and change the AF mode
automatically to AI Servo AF.
When focus is achieved in the AI Focus AF mode with the Servo mode
active, the beeper will sound softly. The focus confirmation light <o> in the

¡ During manual focusing, evaluative metering is based
on the center AF point.
¡ If the subject brightness and background light level are
very different (there is a strong backlight or spotlight),
use partial metering <w> instead.

Shutter Speed Display
The shutter speeds from “4000” to “4” indicate the denominator of the
fractional shutter speed. For example, “125” indicates 1/125 sec.Also, “0"6”
indicates 0.6 sec. and “15"” is 15 sec.
83
f Aperture-Priority AE
In this mode, you set the desired aperture and the camera sets the
shutter speed automatically to suit the subject brightness. This is called
aperture-priority AE.
A larger aperture opening (lower f/number) will result in a blurred
background ideal for portraits. This occurs because a lower f/number
decreases the depth of field (range of acceptable focus). On the other
hand, a smaller aperture opening (higher f/number) will make more of
the foreground and background fall within acceptable focus. A smaller
aperture opening increases the depth of field.

Against dark backgrounds such as the night scenes, slow-sync
shooting will be set so that both the subject and background are
exposed correctly. The main subject is exposed with the flash,
and the background is exposured with a slow shutter speed.
¡Because automatic slow-sync shooting uses a slow shutter
speed, always use a tripod.
¡ If you do not want a slow shutter speed to be set, set C.Fn-3
[Flash sync. speed in Av mode] to [1: 1/200sec. (fixed)].
(p.148)
a : You can set both the shutter speed (bulb or 30 sec. - 1/200

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

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

Using EOS-Dedicated, External Speedlites
With EX-series Speedlites
An EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlite (optional) makes flash photography
as easy as normal shooting. You can easily do the flash operations below. For
detailed procedures, see the Speedlite’s instruction manual.
¡E-TTL II Autoflash
E-TTL II is a new autoflash exposure system incorporating improved flash
exposure control and lens focusing distance information, making it more precise
than the previous E-TTL (evaluative flash metering with preflash) system. The
camera can execute E-TTL II autoflash with any EX-series Speedlite.
• High-Speed Sync (FP flash)
With high-speed sync, you can set a sync speed faster than 1/200 sec.
• FE (Flash Exposure) Lock
Press the camera’s <A> button to lock the flash exposure at the desired part
of the subject.
• Flash Exposure Compensation
In the same way as normal exposure compensation, you can set exposure
compensation for flash. The flash exposure compensation amount can be set with the
camera up to ±2 stops in 1/3-stop increments. With Speedlites which you can set the
flash exposure compensation, it can be set up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
• FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)
The flash output is changed automatically for three successive shots (only with
FEB-compatible Speedlites). Set flash exposure bracketing up to ±3 stops in 1/
3-stop increments.
• E-TTL II Wireless Autoflash with Multiple Speedlites
As with wired, multiple Speedlites, wireless E-TTL II autoflash with multiple Speedlites
provides all the above features. Since connection cords are unnecessary, flexible and
sophisticated lighting setups are possible (only with wireless-compatible Speedlites).
About EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlites
The flash cannot be fired with an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlite
set in the TTL or A-TTL autoflash mode. Use the Speedlite’s manual
flash mode instead if provided.
101
Using EOS-Dedicated, External Speedlites
¡ Before attaching an external Speedlite, retract the built-in flash if it is
popped up.
¡ If the EX-series Speedlite’s firing mode is set to TTL autoflash with the
Custom Function, the Speedlite will not fire.
¡ If autofocus cannot be achieved, the external, EOS-dedicated
Speedlite’s AF-assist beam (if the Speedlite has an AF-assist beam) will
be emitted automatically (except in the <3> <5> <7> modes).
¡ The camera is a Type-A camera that can use all the features of EXseries Speedlites.
Using Non-Canon Flash Units
The camera can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash units at 1/
200 sec. or slower. Be sure to test the flash unit beforehand to make
sure it synchronizes properly with the camera.
¡ 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 attach a high-voltage flash unit on the camera’s hot shoe. It might not work.
U LCD Panel Illumination
The LCD panel is provided with
illumination.
To illuminate the LCD panel, press the
<U> button (9). To turn off the
illumination, press the button again. Use
it to read the LCD panel in the dark.
¡ Pressing any shooting-related button or turning the Mode Dial while the
LCD panel is illuminated prolongs the illumination.

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

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

E-TTL II
0: Evaluative
Fully automatic flash photography under all conditions, from low
light to daylight fill-flash.
1: Average
The flash exposure is averaged for the entire area covered by the
flash. Since the camera will not execute automatic exposure
compensation, adjust the flash exposure compensation if
necessary. This also applies if you use FE lock.
C.Fn-9
Shutter curtain sync.
0: 1st-curtain sync.
1: 2nd-curtain sync.
When a slow shutter speed is set, you can capture a light trail
following the subject.The flash fires right before the shutter closes.
This Custom Function can be used to obtain 2nd-curtain sync
effects even with EX-series Speedlites which do not provide 2ndcurtain sync. If the EX-series Speedlite has this feature, it will
override this Custom Function.
When 2nd-curtain sync is used, a preflash will be fired for flash metering
control right after you press the shutter button completely. Remember that
the main flash will fire right before the shutter closes.
