Index
Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
The EOS 300D DIGITAL is a high-performance, digital AF SLR camera
with an ultra-fine CMOS sensor with 6.30 million effective pixels. It is
full-featured for all types of shooting, from fully automatic snapshooting
to highly creative work. You can use all Canon EF and EF-S lenses and
start shooting quickly at any time in any mode. Images can also be
printed directly from the camera.
CompactFlash cards serve as the camera’s recording medium.
Be sure to read this Instruction Manual to familiarize yourself with the
features and proper operation of this camera.
Test the Camera Before Shooting
Before using the camera, be sure to test it first. Check that the images are
properly recorded on the CF card. If the camera or CF card is faulty and the
images cannot be recorded or read by a personal computer, Canon cannot be
held liable for any loss or inconvenience caused.

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
The Camera
camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or expose it to physical shock.
• This
camera is not waterproof and should not be used in wet conditions or underwater.
• The
If the camera gets wet, take it to your nearest Canon dealer as soon as possible. If

small amounts of water splash onto the camera, wipe it with a clean dry cloth. If the
camera is exposed to salty air, wipe it thoroughly with a slightly damp cloth.
Never leave the camera close to devices that generate strong magnetic fields, such
as magnets or electric motors. Do not operate or leave the camera in areas where
strong electromagnetic signals are generated, such as near electronic transmission
towers. Exposing the camera to strong electromagnetic signals can cause it to
malfunction and destroy recorded image data.
Do not leave the camera in hot locations, such as in a car sitting in direct sunlight.
High temperatures can damage the camera.
The camera contains precision circuits. Never attempt to disassemble the camera or
service it yourself.
Use a commercially available blower brush to remove any dust that accumulates on
the camera lens, viewfinder, mirror, or focusing screen. Do not use cleaners that
contain organic solvents to wipe off the camera body or lens. If the camera is very
soiled, consult your nearest Canon dealer.
Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your hands. Doing so could
corrode the contacts and interfere with the camera’s normal operation.
If the camera is suddenly brought in from the cold into a warm room, condensation
may form on the camera and internal parts. To prevent condensation, first put the
camera in a sealed plastic bag. Let the camera adjust to the warmer temperature
before taking it out of the bag.
Do not use the camera if condensation forms on it, or you could damage it. If this
occurs, remove the lens, CF card and battery from the camera, and wait until the
condensation has evaporated before using the camera.
If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove its battery and store
the camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. While the camera is in storage,
operate its shutter periodically to make sure that it is working.
Avoid storing the camera in locations where potentially corrosive chemicals are
used, such as in a laboratory.
If the camera has been in storage for an extended period, check its components
before using it. If you have not used the camera for some time or are planning to take
shots you will not want to lose (overseas vacation, etc.), have the camera checked
by your Canon dealer beforehand, or check for yourself that the camera components
are working properly.

Cleaning the Image Sensor (CMOS)
The image sensor is like the film in a film-based camera. If any dust or
other foreign matter adheres to the image sensor, it may show up as
a dark speck in the images.
To avoid this, follow the procedure below to clean the image sensor.
Note that the image sensor is a very delicate component. If possible,
you should have it cleaned by a Canon Service Center.
While you clean the image sensor, the camera must be turned on.
Use the AC Adapter Kit ACK-E2 (optional accessory, see page 126) or
a battery. If you use a battery, make sure the battery level is sufficient.
Before cleaning the image sensor, detach the lens from the camera.

auto rotation.
For Basic Zone modes, only the image-recording quality
(except <h>), file numbering, auto rotation, and camera
setting checking will apply in this chapter.
47
Image-Recording Quality
The widely-used JPEG format is used for image-recording quality
settings other than <h>. Images captured in the <h> format
must later be processed by a personal computer.

D Setting the ISO Speed
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 moving subjects or shooting
in low-light conditions. However, the image will contain more noise to
make it look coarse or grainy. On the other hand, a low ISO speed will
make the image look finer, but it is not suited for freezing motion or
shooting in low light.
ISO Speed in the Basic Zone Modes
The ISO speed is set automatically within ISO 100-400.

White Balance
The three R (red), G (green), and B (blue) primary colors exist in varying
proportions in a light source depending on its color temperature. When the
color temperature is high, there is more blue. And when the color
temperature is low, there is more red.
To the human eye, a white object still looks white regardless of the type of
lighting. With a digital camera’s white balance setting, you can compensate
for the color temperature so that the colors in the image look more natural.
The subject’s white color is corrected and used as the basis for adjusting
the other colors. The camera’s <Z> feature uses the image sensor for
auto white balance.

Custom White Balance
With custom white balance, you shoot a white object that will serve as
the standard for the white balance. By selecting this image, you import

Using the Built-in Flash in the Creative Zone
When using a Creative Zone mode, press the <M> button to pop up the
built-in flash.
T
Select < T> mode for full autoflash.
The shutter speed and aperture value are determined
automatically, just as in < Y> (Full Auto) mode.
R
Select <R> mode to manually set a shutter speed slower than
1/200 second.
The camera then automatically sets the flash aperture value to
provide the proper exposure for your shutter speed.
E
Select <E> mode to manually set the aperture value.
Against dark backgrounds such as the night sky, slow-sync
shooting will be set so that both the subject and background
are exposed correctly. The main subject is captured by the
flash, and the background is captured by long exposure using
a slow shutter speed.
Because automatic slow-sync shooting uses a slow shutter
speed, always use a tripod.

Using the Built-in Flash
Using Red-eye Reduction
When flash is used in a low-light environment, the subject’s eyes may
come out 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 <I > <P > <S>.

Metering Modes
The camera has three metering modes: Evaluative, partial, and
centerweighted average metering.
Evaluative metering
This is the camera’s standard metering mode suited
for most subjects even under backlit conditions.
After detecting the main subject’s position,
brightness, background, front and back lighting
conditions, camera orientation (horizontal or
vertical), etc., the camera sets the proper exposure.
Partial metering
This is set automatically during AE lock in the
Creative Zone modes.
This is particularly effective when the background is
much brighter than the subject due to backlighting,
etc. This method uses a center area of
approximately 9% of the screen.
The area covered by partial metering is shown on
the left.
•
Centerweighted average metering
This is set automatically in the <W> mode.
The metering is weighted at the center and then
averaged for the entire scene.
