Handling Cautions
Camera Care and Storage
• The camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to
physical shock.
• The camera is not waterproof and should not be used in wet conditions
or underwater. If the camera gets wet, take it to your nearest Canon
dealer as soon as possible. If small amounts of water splash onto the
camera, wipe it with a clean dry cloth. If the camera is exposed to salty
air, wipe it thoroughly with a slightly damp cloth.
• Do not leave the camera in places prone to excessive heat such as in a
car on a sunny day. Excessive heat can cause the camera to
malfunction.
• The camera contains precision electronic circuitry. Never attempt to
disassemble the camera.
• Use only a blower brush to blow away any dust on the lens, eyepiece,
mirror, focusing screen, film compartment, etc. Do not clean the
camera body or lens with any cleaner containing an organic solvent.
For stubborn dirt, consult your nearest Canon dealer.
• The shutter curtains are extremely thin. Use only a blower to clean
them. Be careful not to blow air too forcefully on the shutter curtains.
The shutter curtains can be easily deformed or damaged. Also, when
loading and unloading film, be careful not to touch the shutter curtains.
• Do not touch the electrical contacts with your fingers. Otherwise
corrosion may develop on the contacts, resulting in improper camera
operation.
• If the camera is not to be used for an extended period, remove the
batteries. Store the camera in a well-ventilated, cool, dry place. During
storage, press the shutter button once in a while to release the shutter
a few times.
• Avoid storing the camera in a laboratory, cabinet, etc., where corrosive
chemicals are present.
• If you have not used the camera for some time or if there is an
important shoot, have the camera checked by your Canon dealer
beforehand, or check for yourself that the camera components are
working properly.

LCD Displays
LCD displays operate more slowly at low temperatures, and may appear
dark at high temperatures. The display will return to normal at room
temperature.
Batteries
• Before installing the batteries, wipe the battery contacts to remove any
fingerprints and smudges. This is to prevent faulty connections and
corrosion.
• Never disassemble or recharge the batteries. Also, never store a
battery in high-temperature places or short circuit the battery contacts
or toss a battery into a fire.
• Although the batteries work well even at low temperatures, battery
performance may decline slightly at freezing temperatures. In such a
case, keep spare batteries warm in a pocket, etc., and use and warm
the batteries alternately.
How Low Battery Levels Affect Camera Operation
On the LCD panel, if the <r> icon blinks or it is not displayed, a proper
exposure can still be obtained as long as the shutter releases. However,
when the battery level is low, the film advance and auto rewind might
stop midway or not work at all and the <r> icon may blink on the LCD
panel. After the batteries are replaced with new ones, film advance will
be possible and film rewind can resume by pressing the <6> button.
Lens Electrical Contacts
After detaching the lens from the camera, put on
the lens caps or put down the lens with the rear
end up to avoid scratching the lens surface and
electrical contacts.

How the Shutter Button Works
The shutter button has two stages. You can press it down halfway or fully.
The two levels of shutter button operation are as follows:
When it is pressed halfway:
sPressing
the shutter button down
halfway activates autofocusing (AF)
and automatic exposure (AE) and the
shutter speed and aperture value are
set.
sThe exposure (the combination of
shutter speed and aperture value)
appears on the LCD panel and in the
viewfinder (0).
When it is pressed fully:
sThe
shutter is released to take the
picture and the film advances by one
frame.
If an Extender (sold separately) is used and the maximum aperture (the
lowest f/number) of the lens becomes smaller than f/5.6, autofocusing will not
operate.
• After pressing the shutter button halfway, wait a moment before pressing it
completely to take the picture. If you press the shutter button completely at
one stroke or right after pressing it halfway, it will take a moment before the
picture is taken.
• Camera movement during the moment of exposure is called camera shake.
Camera shake can cause blurred pictures. To prevent blurred pictures due to
camera shake:
· Hold the camera steady.
· Use your finger tip to touch the shutter button, grasp the camera with your
entire right hand, then press the shutter button gently.
• If the AF Mode Dial has been set to <5>, the focus confirmation
light <n> will not light.
• If the AF Mode Dial has been set to <5> and automatic AF point
selection is set (p.42), the AF point will not flash in red.

these modes override the camera’s <l> <u> and AF Mode
dials, film advance mode lever (except <p>), and buttons
(except <0> <6> and the shutter button). This is to
prevent spoiled shots caused by accidental operation of
camera controls.

FUsing Red-eye Reduction (with the built-in flash)
When flash is used in a low-light environment, the subject’s eyes may
come out red in the photograph. “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>.

AF Modes and Metering
Modes
The viewfinder has seven AF
points. You can select the AF point
closest to the subject to make it
easier and faster to compose the
picture. You can also select the AF
mode to suit the subject or
shooting conditions.
Evaluative, partial, and centerweighted averaging metering
modes are provided. Set the
metering mode to suit shooting
conditions and obtain the desired
exposure.
• The ★ symbol indicates that the respective feature can
be used only in Creative Zone modes (S, R, E, W,
Q).
37
Selecting the AF Mode★
The AF mode is the autofocusing method. The camera has three AF
modes: 1. One Shot AF for still subjects, 2. AI Servo AF for moving
subjects, and 3. AI Focus AF that switches automatically from One-Shot
AF to AI Servo AF if the subject starts to move.

Also see “When Autofocus Fails” (p.51).
AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
While you press the shutter
button halfway, the camera
focuses continuously
• This AF mode suits moving subjects
when the focusing distance keeps
changing.
sWith predictive AF∗, the camera can
also focus track a subject which
steadily approaches or retreats from
the camera.
sThe exposure settings are set
immediately before the picture is
taken.
39
Selecting the AF Mode★
• When focus is achieved, the focus confirmation light <n> in the viewfinder
will not light and the beeper will not sound.
• If the focus confirmation light <n> in the viewfinder blinks, it means focus
has not been achieved.
• Focus lock cannot be used.
∗ 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. If the subject moves away from the center AF
point, focus tracking continues as long as the subject is covered by
another AF point. The active AF point will not flash in red.
• With a manually selected AF point, the selected AF point is used for
predictive AF.
• In the Eye Control mode, Eye Control Servo AF (p.49) will be used. As
long as one of the AF points cover the moving subject, predictive AF
will continue to track the subject as you follow it with your eye.
With C.Fn-04-2, holding down the <w> button will temporarily stop the
AF operation in the AI Servo AF mode. (p.85)
AI Focus AF for Automatic AF Mode Switching
The AI Focus AF mode switches
automatically from One-Shot AF to AI
Servo AF if the subject starts to move.
If focus is achieved in the One-Shot AF
mode and the subject starts to move
continuously, the camera will detect the
movement and switch automatically to
AI Servo AF to focus track the subject.

e Eye Control Calibration (m Model only)
With Eye Control, the camera detects which AF point your eye is looking
at. That AF point is then selected and used to focus the subject.
Calibration Procedure
Before using Eye Control, you must calibrate the camera so that it can
correctly detect the movements of your eye looking through the
eyepiece. To calibrate it, look at the blinking AF point, then press the
shutter button. You must calibrate it for both the horizontal and vertical
camera orientations. The camera can save up to five calibration settings.
• To maximize the calibration precision, read “Eye Control
Calibration and Operation Tips” on page 46.
• Before starting, complete any necessary dioptric adjustment. (p.25)
• While calibrating the camera, do not take your eye off the eyepiece.

Eye Control Calibration and Operation Tips
• Hold the camera as you always do while looking through the viewfinder.
• Look through the viewfinder so you can see all four corners of the
viewfinder.
• Avoid squinting or blinking your eye.
• When using Eye Control, look through the eyepiece in the same way
you did during the calibration.
• During the calibration procedure, keep looking (without moving your
eye) at the blinking AF point until it lights and the beeper sounds.
• Keep both eyes open while looking through the viewfinder.
• If you wear eyeglasses, wear them properly without having them slide
down your nose.
Eye Control calibration and operation might not be possible in the
following cases:
• When you wear bifocal eyeglasses or hard contact lenses.
• You wear mirror-type sunglasses or other specially-coated glasses.
• Your eye is too far away from the eyepiece due to eyeglasses, etc.
• Your eye is too close to the viewfinder.
Intelligent Eye Control
You can repeat the calibration procedure under different conditions such
as when you are outdoors, indoors, or at night. The camera can save
these additional calibration settings under the same CAL No. By
accumulating more calibration settings, the camera can provide more
precise Eye Control.
Two or more users must not share the same CAL No. Each user should have
his or her own CAL No. If necessary, delete the calibration settings saved
under another CAL No. to store another user’s calibration settings. (p.47)
46
Deleting Eye Control Calibration Settings
If you want to save new calibration settings under a CAL No. that already
has calibration settings, follow the procedure below to first delete the

ZEvaluative metering
This is the camera’s standard metering mode suited for
most shooting including backlit conditions. Based on the
subject’s position in the viewfinder, brightness, background,
front or back lighting conditions, etc., the camera always
calculates the proper exposure for the subject.
• During manual focusing, evaluative metering is based on the
center AF point.
• If the subject brightness and background light level are very
different (strong backlight or spotlight), partial metering (X)
is recommended instead.
XPartial metering
This is effective for backlit subjects. An area covering about
10% of the viewfinder screen at the center is used for
metering. The partial metering area is shown on the left.
CCenter-weighted averaging metering
The metering is weighted at the center and then averaged
for the entire scene.
Partial metering and FE lock can be linked to the active AF point. (See page

E Aperture-Priority AE
In this mode, you set the desired aperture value and the camera sets the
shutter speed automatically to suit the subject brightness.
The larger or brighter the aperture (lower f/number) the more blurred the
background will become. This effect is ideal for portraits. The smaller or
darker the aperture (higher f/number), the clearer the focus will be for
both near and far objects (wider depth of field).

Flash Photography
With the built-in flash or EOSdedicated Speedlite, you can
easily take flash pictures in the
same way as normal AE shooting.
In the Basic Zone modes (except
<I> <P>), the built-in flash is
fully automatic. In Creative Zone
modes, it can be used at any time.
77
Using the Built-in Flash
In a Basic Zone Mode
In low-light or backlit conditions, the built-in flash will pop up and fire
automatically (except in <I> <P> modes).
In a Creative Zone Mode
Just pop-up the built-in flash to fire the flash regardless of the ambient
light level.
S
: Use this mode for automatic flash photography. The flash
sync speed (within 1/60 sec. - 1/125 sec) and aperture value
will be set automatically as with the <Y> (Full Auto) mode.
R : Use this mode if you want to set the flash sync speed
manually (within 30 sec. - 1/125 sec.). The camera will set the
flash aperture value automatically to obtain a correct flash
exposure.
E : Use this mode if you want to set the flash aperture value.
The camera will set the flash sync speed (within 30 sec. 1/125 sec.) automatically to obtain the best exposure for the
aperture you set. For portraits with a night scene or dark
background, a slow sync speed will be set to obtain a proper
exposure for both the subject and background. The flash
illuminates the subject, while the background is properly
exposed with a slow shutter speed.
• Because automatic slow-sync shooting uses a slow shutter
speed, always use a tripod.
W
: Enables you to manually set the shutter speed (30 sec. 1/125 sec. or bulb) and aperture. The subject is properly
exposed with the flash and the background is exposed with the
flash sync speed and aperture value you have set.
Q : This mode gives the same flash result as the <S> mode.

• Use the built-in flash at least 1 meter (3.3 ft) away from the subject. Closer
distances may result in the flash partially obstructed by the lens barrel.
• When using the built-in flash, detach any hood attached to the lens. A lens
hood will partially obstruct the flash coverage.
• When a super telephoto lens or a fast, large-aperture lens is attached, the
built-in flash coverage might be obstructed. Using an EOS-dedicated
Speedlite is recommended.
• The built-in flash’s flash coverage is suited for a 28mm lens. If you use a
shorter wide-angle lens, the flash picture may look dark along the periphery.
• To retract the built-in flash, push it down.
• In <R> or <W> mode, even if you set the shutter speed faster than 1/125

For details on operating the Speedlite, refer to the Speedlite’s
instruction booklet.
Using an EX-series Speedlite
With E-TTL II autoflash (AF point-linked,
evaluative flash metering with preflash),
you can easily take natural-looking flash
pictures centering on the subject in the
same way as normal AE shooting.
Using an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlite
With A-TTL/TTL autoflash (AF point-linked, off-the-film flash metering),
you can easily take flash pictures in the same way as normal AE
shooting.
About 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.
• Before attaching an external Speedlite, retract the built-in flash.
• If you use a flash unit (with multiple contacts) dedicated to another camera
brand or a high-voltage flash, the camera may not work properly or
malfunction may result.
• If focus is difficult to achieve, the EOS-dedicated Speedlite (one with a builtin AF-assist light) will automatically emit the AF-assist light (except in <I>
<P> modes).
• With regard to EOS-dedicated Speedlites, this is a Type A camera
(compatible with E-TTL II autoflash).
81
Using an EOS-dedicated Speedlite
• C.Fn-07-3 can disable the EOS-dedicated Speedlite from firing a flash.

Reference
Basic Photography Terms
AE
Abbreviation for auto exposure. It is an automatic metering and exposure
system that sets the optimum exposure (shutter speed and/or aperture
value) based on the reading by the built-in exposure meter.
Exposure
Exposure occurs when the film is exposed to light. Correct exposure is
obtained when the film is exposed to a proper amount of light in
accordance with the film’s sensitivity to light. The correct exposure is
adjusted with the camera’s shutter speed and aperture.
Shutter speed
The shutter speed is the length of time the camera’s shutter opens to
expose the film to the light coming through the lens. The camera displays
the shutter speed from “D” (1/4000 sec.) to “K” (30 sec.) and
“y”.
Aperture value
The aperture setting (f-number) indicates
the size of the aperture opening in the
lens. It is used to adjust the amount of light
striking the film. The camera can display
the aperture setting from “X” to “V”. The
actual aperture range displayed depends
on the lens.
ISO film speed
The ISO film speed indicates the film’s sensitivity to light. The higher the
film speed, the more sensitive the film is. Therefore, ISO 400 and higherspeed films are suited for low-light conditions. The ISO film speed is set
in accordance with standards set by the International Standardization
Organization (ISO). The camera can display the ISO film speed from “U”
to “F”.
89
Basic Photography Terms
Depth of field
This is the range where acceptable focus can be achieved in front of and
behind the point of focus. The smaller the aperture value (the higher the
f/number), the deeper the depth of field. And the larger the aperture
value (the lower the f/number), the shallower the depth of field.
The depth of field is affected as described below:
(1) A smaller aperture value (a higher f/number) increases the depth of
field.
For example, stopping down to f/8 obtains a deeper depth of field
than f/4.5.
(2) A lens with a shorter focal length increases the depth of field.
A wide-angle lens obtains a deeper depth of field than a telephoto
lens.
(3) A longer distance between the camera and subject increases the
depth of field.
(4) The depth of field behind the point of optimum focus (2) is longer than
the depth of field in front of the point of optimum focus (1).

Program Line Description
The bottom horizontal axis represents the shutter speed and the right
vertical axis represents the aperture value. On the left edge and top
edge of the graph, the Exposure Value (EV) is indicated for the
respective shutter speed and aperture value combination set by the
Program AE mode and denoted by the program line.
Example: When the 105mm focal length is used and the subject
brightness is EV 12, the point where the diagonal line from EV 12 (on
the top edge of the graph) intersects the program line indicates the
corresponding shutter speed (1/125 sec.) and aperture value (f/5.6)
which the program sets automatically.
The arrowhead lines above the graph indicate the metering range for the
respective film speed.
