INSTRUCTION
MANUAL
Introduction
The EOS 1200D is a high-performance, digital single-lens reflex
camera featuring a fine-detail CMOS sensor with approx. 18.0 effective
megapixels, DIGIC 4, high-precision and high-speed 9-point AF,
approx. 3.0 fps continuous shooting, Live View shooting, and Full
High-Definition (Full HD) movie shooting.
The camera is highly responsive to any shooting situation, and provides
many features for demanding shots.
Refer to This Manual While Using the Camera to Further
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.307-309) and “Handling Precautions” (p.20, 21).
Testing the Camera Before Use and Liability
After shooting, play images back and check whether they have been
properly recorded. If the camera or memory card is faulty and the
images cannot be recorded or downloaded to a computer, Canon
cannot be held liable for any loss or inconvenience caused.
Copyrights
Copyright laws in your country may prohibit the use of your recorded
images or copyrighted music and images with music in the memory
card for anything other than private enjoyment. Also be aware that
certain public performances, exhibitions, etc., may prohibit photography
even for private enjoyment.

Compatible Cards
The camera can use the following cards regardless of capacity: If the
card is new or was previously formatted by another camera or
computer, it is recommended that you format the card with this
camera (p.50).
• SD memory cards
• SDHC memory cards
• SDXC memory cards
The camera can use UHS-I cards, but since it is not compatible with the
UHS-I standard, reading/writing speeds will be equivalent to SD Speed
Class 10 at most.
Cards that Can Record Movies
When shooting movies, use a large-capacity SD card rated SD
Speed Class 6 “
” or higher.
If you use a slow-writing card when shooting movies, the movie may
not be recorded properly. Also, if you play back a movie on a card
with a slow reading speed, the movie may not play back properly.
If you want to shoot still photos while shooting a movie, you will need
an even faster card.
To check the card’s reading/writing speed, refer to the card
manufacturer’s website.
In this manual, “card” refers to SD memory cards, SDHC memory
cards, and SDXC memory cards.
* The camera does not come with a card for recording images/
movies. Please purchase it separately.

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 the nearest Canon
Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry and clean 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 built-in flash, 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 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 chemicals that result in rust and
corrosion such as in a chemical lab.
20
Handling Precautions
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 such as a foreign trip coming up, have the camera
checked by your Canon dealer or check the camera yourself and make sure
it is working properly.
If you use continuous shooting, Live View shooting, or movie shooting for a
prolonged period, the camera may become hot. This is not a malfunction.
LCD Monitor
Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision
technology with over 99.99% effective pixels, there may be a few dead pixels
displaying only black or red, etc. among the remaining 0.01% or less pixels.
Dead pixels 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.
The LCD monitor display may seem slow in low temperatures, or look black
in high temperatures. 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 touch the card’s electronic contacts with your fingers or anything metallic.
Do not affix any stickers, etc., on the card.
Do not store or use the card near anything that has 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
After detaching the lens from the camera, put down the lens
with the rear end up and attach the lens caps to avoid
scratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.
Contacts
Smudges 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. If visible spots remain on the
image, having the sensor cleaned by a Canon Service
Center is recommended.

X Recharging starts automatically and
the charge lamp lights up in orange.
X When the battery is fully recharged,
the full-charge lamp will light up in

It takes approx. 2 hours to fully recharge a completely
exhausted battery at room temperature (23°C / 73°F). The time
required to recharge the battery will vary greatly depending on
the ambient temperature and the battery’s remaining capacity.
For safety reasons, recharging in low temperatures (6°C - 10°C /
43°F - 50°F) will take longer (up to approx. 4 hours).
30
Charging the Battery
Tips for Using the Battery and Charger
Upon purchase, the battery is not fully charged.
Charge the battery before use.
Recharge the battery on the day before or on the day it is to be
used.
Even during storage, a charged battery will gradually drain and lose
its capacity.
After recharging the battery, detach it and disconnect the
charger from the power outlet.
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
(provided) attached. Storing the battery when it is fully charged may
lower the battery’s performance.
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 reached the end of its service life.
Purchase a new battery.
After disconnecting the charger’s power plug, do not touch the prongs for
at least 3 sec.
Do not charge any battery other than a Battery Pack LP-E10.
Battery Pack LP-E10 is dedicated to Canon products only. Using it with
an incompatible battery charger or product may result in malfunction or
accidents for which Canon cannot be held liable.
31
Installing and Removing the Battery and Card
Load a fully charged Battery Pack LP-E10 into the camera. The camera
can use an SD, SDHC, or SDXC memory card (sold separately). The
captured images are recorded onto the card.

If the card already contains recorded images, the image number may not
start from 0001 (p.184).
If a card-related error message is displayed on the LCD monitor, remove
and reinsert the card. If the error persists, use a different card.
If you can transfer all the images on the card to a computer, transfer all
the images, then format the card with the camera (p.50). The card may
then return to normal.
Do not touch the card’s contacts with your fingers or metal objects. Do
not expose the contacts to dust or water. If a smudge adheres to the
contacts, contact failure may result.
The camera cannot use MultiMediaCards (MMC). (A card error will
appear.)

the picture.
3 TakeWhen
the picture looks steady in the
viewfinder, press the shutter button
completely to take the picture.
The Image Stabilizer is not effective if the subject moves at the time of
exposure.
For bulb exposures, set the IS switch to <2>. If <1> is set, Image
Stabilizer misoperation may occur.
The Image Stabilizer may not be effective for excessive shaking such as
on a rocking boat.
The Image Stabilizer can operate with the lens’s focus mode switch set
to either <AF> or <MF>.
When using a tripod, you can still shoot with the IS switch set to <1>
with no problem. However, to save battery power, setting the IS switch to
<2> is recommended.
The Image Stabilizer is effective 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-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS II switches
the IS mode automatically.
43
Basic Operation
Adjusting the Viewfinder Sharpness
Turn the dioptric adjustment
knob.
Turn the knob left or right so that the
AF points (nine boxes) in the
viewfinder look sharp.
If the camera dioptric adjustment still cannot provide a sharp viewfinder
image, using E-series Dioptric Adjustment Lenses (sold separately) is
recommended.
Holding the Camera
To obtain sharp images, hold the camera still to minimize camera
shake.

A card-related error is displayed (p.296).
Low-level Formatting
Perform low-level formatting if the card’s recording or reading speed seems
slow or if you want to totally erase data in the card.
Since low-level formatting will format all recordable sectors in the card, the
formatting will take slightly longer than normal formatting.
You can stop the low-level formatting by selecting [Cancel]. Even in this
case, normal formatting will be completed and you can use the card as
usual.
When the card is formatted or data is erased, only the file management
information is changed. The actual data is not completely erased. Be
aware of this when selling or discarding the card. When discarding the
card, execute low-level formatting or destroy the card physically to
prevent the personal data from being leaked.
Before using a new Eye-Fi card, the software on the card must be
installed on your computer. Then format the card with the camera.
The card capacity displayed on the card format screen may be smaller
than the capacity indicated on the card.

This chapter explains how to use the Basic Zone modes
on the Mode Dial for best results and how to play back
images.
With Basic Zone modes, all you do is point and shoot while the
camera sets everything automatically (p.72, 274). Also, to
prevent botched pictures due to mistaken operations,
advanced shooting function settings cannot be changed.

photography, if the subject is too close to the camera, the picture
may come out extremely bright (overexposure).
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 AF-assist
beam. Its effective range is approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet.
When flash was used, the bottom part of the picture came out
unnaturally dark.
The shadow of the lens barrel was captured in the picture because
the subject was too close to the camera. Move further away from the
subject and shoot. If a hood is attached to the lens, remove it before
taking the flash picture.

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 <A> mode, while you press the shutter button halfway to focus
on 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”. Focus lock is also possible in other Basic Zone
modes (except <5>).
Shooting a Moving Subject
In the <A> mode, if the subject moves (distance to camera changes)
while or after you focus, AI Servo AF will take effect to focus on the
subject continuously. (The beeper will continue beeping softly.) 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.

7 Disabling Flash
The camera analyzes the scene and sets the optimum settings
automatically. In places where flash photography is prohibited such as
in a museum or an aquarium, use the <7> (Flash Off) mode. This
mode is also effective for capturing the particular ambience of a scene,
such as candlelight scenes.
Shooting Tips
Prevent camera shake if the numeric display in the viewfinder
blinks.
Under low light when camera shake is prone to occur, the
viewfinder’s shutter speed display will blink. Hold the camera steady
or use a tripod. When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to
reduce blur caused by camera shake even while handholding the
camera.
Take portraits without flash.
In low-light conditions, tell the subject to keep still until the picture is
taken. Any movement by the subject during shooting may result in
the subject being blurred in the picture.

2 Shooting Portraits
The <2> (Portrait) mode blurs the background to make the human
subject stand out. It also makes skin tones and hair look softer.
Shooting Tips
The further the distance between the subject and background,
the better.
The further the distance between the subject and background, the
more blurred the background will look. The subject will also stand
out better against an uncluttered dark background.
Use a telephoto lens.
If you have a zoom lens, use the telephoto end to fill the frame with
the subject from the waist up. Move in closer if necessary.
Focus the face.
Check that the AF point covering the face flashes. For close-ups of
the face, focus on the eyes.
If you hold down the shutter button, you can shoot continuously to
capture subtle changes in the subject’s pose and facial expression (max.
approx. 3 shots/sec.).
If necessary, the built-in flash will pop up automatically.
65
3 Shooting Landscapes
Use the <3> (Landscape) mode for wide scenery or to have
everything in focus from near to far. For vivid blues and greens, and
very sharp and crisp images.
Shooting Tips
With a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end.
When using the wide-angle end of a zoom lens, objects near and far
will be in focus. It also adds breadth to landscapes.
Shooting night scenes.
Since the built-in flash will be disabled, this
mode <3> is also good for night scenes.
Use a tripod to prevent camera shake.
If you want to shoot a person against a
night scene, set the Mode Dial to <6>
(Night Portrait) and use a tripod (p.69).
The flash will not fire even in backlit or low-light conditions.
66
4 Shooting Close-ups
When you want to shoot flowers or small things up close, use the <4>
(Close-up) mode. To make small things appear much larger, use a
macro lens (sold separately).
Shooting Tips
Use a simple background.
A simple background makes small objects such as flowers stand out
better.
Move as close as possible to the subject.
Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. Some lenses
have indications such as <40.25m/0.8ft> on them. The lens
minimum focusing distance is measured from the <V> (focal
plane) mark on the top of the camera to the subject. If you are too
close to the subject, the focus confirmation light <o> will blink.
If you use flash and the bottom of the picture looks unusually dark,
move away from the subject.
With a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.
If you have a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the
subject look larger.
67
5 Shooting Moving Subjects
Use the <5> (Sports) mode to shoot a moving subject, such as a
running person or a moving vehicle.
Shooting Tips
Use a telephoto lens.
The use of a telephoto lens is recommended for shooting from a
distance.
Use the center AF point to focus.
Aim the center AF point over the subject, then press the shutter
button halfway to autofocus. During autofocusing, the beeper will
continue beeping softly. If focus cannot be achieved, the focus
confirmation light <o> will blink.
When you want to take the picture, press the shutter button
completely. If you hold down the shutter button, you will be able to
maintain autofocusing during continuous shooting of the subject’s
movement (max. approx. 3 shots per sec.).
Under low light when camera shake is prone to occur, the viewfinder’s
shutter speed display on the bottom left will blink. Hold the camera steady
and shoot.
68
6 Shooting Night Portraits
To shoot people at night and obtain a natural-looking night scene in the
background, use the <6> (Night Portrait) mode. Using a tripod is
recommended.
Shooting Tips
Use a wide-angle lens and a tripod.
When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to obtain a wide
night view. Also, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.
Check the subject’s brightness.
Under low light, the built-in flash will fire automatically to obtain a
good exposure of the subject.
It is recommended that you play back the image after the shooting to
check the image brightness. If the subject looks dark, move nearer
and shoot again.
Also shoot with the <A> (Scene Intelligent Auto) mode.
Since camera shake is prone to occur with night shots, shooting also
in the <A> mode is recommended.
69
6 Shooting Night Portraits
During Live View shooting, it may be difficult to focus on dots of light such as
in a night scene. In such a case, it is recommended that you set the AF
method to [Quick mode] and shoot. If it is still difficult to focus, set the lens’s
focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
Tell the subject to keep still even after the flash fires.
If you use the self-timer together with flash, the self-timer lamp will light
up briefly after the picture is taken.

Note that <2> has image characteristics geared for portraits and
<3> is geared for landscapes. Each ambience is a modification of
the respective shooting mode’s image characteristics.
(2) Vivid
The subject is given a sharp, vivid look. This results in a photo that
looks more impressive than the one taken with [Standard setting].
(3) Soft
The subject is de-emphasized, giving them a softer, daintier look.
Good for portraits, pets, flowers, etc.
(4) Warm
Colors are made warmer and the subject is de-emphasized, making
them seem warmer and gentler. Good for portraits, pets, and other
subjects to which you want to give a warm look.
(5) Intense
While the overall brightness is slightly lowered, the subject is
emphasized for a more intense feeling. Makes the human or living
subject stand out more.
(6) Cool
The overall brightness is slightly lowered with a cooler color cast,
giving the photo a dusky, quiet mood. Makes subjects in the shade
look more calm and impressive.
75

In the <2>, <3>, <4>, and <5> Basic Zone modes, you can shoot
with settings that match the lighting or scene type. Normally, [Default
setting] is adequate, but if the settings match the lighting condition or
scene type, the picture will look more accurate to your eyes.
For Live View shooting, if you set both [Light/scene-based shots] and
[Ambience-based shots] (p.73), setting [Light/scene-based shots] at
first is recommended. This will make it easier to see the resulting effect

Creative Shooting
In the Basic Zone modes, to prevent spoiled shots,
most advanced functions are set automatically and
cannot be changed. In the <d> (Program AE) mode,
you can set various functions and be more creative.
In the <d> mode, the camera sets the shutter speed and
aperture automatically to obtain a standard exposure.
The difference between the Basic Zone modes and <d> is
explained on pages 274-275.
The functions explained in this chapter can also be used in
the <s>, <f>, and <a> modes explained in Chapter 4.
The M icon at the upper right of the page title indicates that
the function is available only in Creative Zone modes
(p.26).
* <d> stands for Program.
* AE stands for Auto Exposure.

Shooting Tips
Change the ISO speed. Use the built-in flash.
To match the subject and ambient lighting level, you can change the
ISO speed (p.88) or use the built-in flash (p.101). In the <d> mode,
the built-in flash will not fire automatically. When indoors or during
low light shooting, it is recommended that you press the <I> (flash)
button to raise the built-in flash. (You can also raise the built-in flash
by selecting <s> on the Quick Control screen.)
Change the program using Program shift.
After pressing the shutter button halfway, turn the <6> dial to
change the shutter speed and aperture setting combination
(program). Program shift is canceled automatically after the picture
is taken. Program shift is not possible with flash.
If the “30"” shutter speed and the lower f/number
blink, it indicates underexposure. Increase the ISO
speed or use flash.
If the “4000” shutter speed and the higher f/number
blink, it indicates overexposure. Decrease the ISO
speed.
Differences Between <d> and <A> (Scene Intelligent Auto)
In the <A> mode, many functions, such as the AF operation and metering
mode, are set automatically to prevent spoiled shots. The functions you can
set are limited. With <d> mode, only the shutter speed and aperture are set
automatically. You can freely set the AF operation, metering mode, and
other functions (p.274).

What’s the difference between 7 and 8?
These settings indicate the different levels of image quality caused
by different compression rates. The 7 setting produces a higher
image quality with the same number of pixels. Although 8 produces
a slightly lower image quality, this allows more images to be saved to
the card. Both b and c have 7 (Fine) quality.
I was able to take more shots than the number of possible shots
indicated.
Depending on the shooting conditions, you may be able to take
more shots than was indicated. It may also be fewer than indicated.
The number of possible shots displayed is only approximate.
Does the camera display the maximum burst?
The maximum burst is displayed in the viewfinder’s right side. Since
it is only a single-digit indicator 0 - 9, any number higher than 8 will
be displayed only as “9”. Note that this number will also be displayed
even when no card is installed in the camera. Be careful not to shoot
without a card in the camera.
When should I use 1?
1 images must be processed on a computer. For details, see
“1” and “1+73” on the next page.

One-Shot AF for Still Subjects
Suited for still subjects. When you press the shutter button
halfway, the camera will focus only once.
When focus is achieved, the dot inside the AF point achieving focus
lights up briefly in red, and the focus confirmation light <o> in the
viewfinder will also light up.
With evaluative metering (p.111), the exposure setting will be set at
the same time as focus is achieved.
While you hold down the shutter button halfway, the focus will be
locked. You can then recompose the shot if desired.
93
f: Changing the Autofocus OperationN
If focus cannot be achieved, the focus confirmation light <o> in the
viewfinder will blink. If this occurs, the picture cannot be taken even if the
shutter button is pressed completely. Recompose the shot and try to
focus again, or see “Subjects Difficult to Focus” (p.97).
If [z1: Beep] is set to [Disable], the beeper will not sound when focus
is achieved.
AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
This AF operation is suited for moving subjects when the focusing
distance keeps changing. While you hold down the shutter button
halfway, the camera will keep focusing on the subject continuously.
The exposure is set at the moment the picture is taken.
When the AF point selection (p.95) 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 AI Servo AF, the beeper will not sound even when focus is achieved.
Also, the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will not light up.
AI Focus AF for Switching the AF Operation Automatically
AI Focus AF switches the AF operation from One-Shot AF to AI
Servo AF automatically if a still subject starts moving.
After the subject is focused in One-Shot AF, if the subject starts
moving, the camera will detect the movement, change the AF
operation automatically to AI Servo AF, and keep tracking the
moving subject.
When focus is achieved in the AI Focus AF operation with the Servo mode
active, the beeper will sound softly. However, the focus confirmation light
<o> in the viewfinder will not light up. Note that focus will not be locked in
this case.

Shooting Tips
When shooting a portrait up close, use One-Shot AF and focus
on the eyes.
If you focus on the eyes first, you can then recompose and the face
will remain sharp.
If it is difficult to focus, select and use the center AF point.
The center AF point is the most sensitive among the nine AF points.
To make it easier to focus on a moving subject, set the camera
to automatic AF point selection and AI Servo AF (p.94).
The center AF point will first be used to focus on the subject. 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.
AF-Assist Beam with the Built-in Flash
Under low-light conditions, when you press the shutter button halfway,
the built-in flash may fire a brief burst of flashes. This illuminates the
subject to enable easier autofocusing.
The AF-assist beam will not be fired from the built-in flash in the following
shooting modes: <7>, <3> and <5>.
The AF-assist beam cannot be emitted with AI Servo AF operation.
The effective range of the AF-assist beam emitted by the built-in flash is
approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet.
In Creative Zone modes, when you raise the built-in flash with the <I>
button (p.101), the AF-assist beam will be emitted when necessary. Note
that depending on the setting for [7: AF-assist beam firing] under [53:
Custom Functions (C.Fn)], AF beam will not be emitted (p.262).
If you use an Extender (sold separately) and the f/number becomes higher
than f/5.6, AF shooting will not be possible (except in [FlexiZone - Single]
and [u Live mode] during Live View shooting). For details, refer to the
Extender’s instruction manual.
96
Subjects Difficult to Focus
Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (viewfinder’s focus confirmation light
<o> blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:
Very low-contrast subjects
(Example: Blue skies, solid-color flat surfaces, etc.)
Subjects in very low light
Extremely backlit and reflective subjects
(Example: Cars with highly reflective bodies, etc.)
Near and far subjects covered by an AF point
(Example: Animals in cages, etc.)
Repetitive patterns
(Example: Skyscraper windows, computer keyboards, etc.)
In such cases, do either of the following:
(1) With One-Shot AF, focus on an object at the same distance as the
subject and lock the focus before recomposing the shot (p.59).
(2) Set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
For subjects difficult to focus during Live View shooting with [FlexiZone Single] and [uLive mode], see page 146.

D Using the Built-in Flash
Shooting Tips
If the subject is far away, increase the ISO speed (p.88).
By increasing the ISO speed, you can extend the flash range.
In bright light, decrease the ISO speed.
If the exposure setting in the viewfinder blinks, decrease the ISO speed.
Detach the lens hood. Do not get too close to the subject.
If the lens has a hood attached or you are too close to the subject,
the bottom of the picture may look dark due to the obstructed flash.
For important shots, check the image on the LCD monitor to make
sure the flash exposure looks natural (not dark at the bottom).
3 Red-eye Reduction
Using the red-eye reduction lamp before taking a flash picture can
reduce red eye.
Red-eye reduction will function in any shooting mode except <7>,
<3>, <5>, or <k>.
Under the [z1] tab, select [Red-eye
reduc.], then press <0>.
Select [Enable], then press <0>.
For flash photography, when you press
the shutter button halfway, the red-eye
reduction lamp will light up. Then when
you press the shutter button
completely, the picture will be taken.
The red-eye reduction feature is most effective when the subject looks at
the red-eye reduction lamp, when the room is well lit, or when you are
close to the subject.
When you press the shutter button halfway, the
scale display on the bottom of the viewfinder will
shrink and turn off. For best results, take the picture
after this scale display turns off.
The effectiveness of red-eye reduction varies depending on the subject.

viewfinder displays only the denominator. “0"5” indicates 0.5 sec. and “15"”
is 15 sec.
104
s: Conveying the Subject’s Movement
Shooting Tips
To freeze the motion of a fast-moving subject
Use a fast shutter speed such as 1/4000 sec. to 1/500 sec.
To blur a running child or animal and convey an impression of
motion
Use a medium shutter speed such as 1/250 sec. to 1/30 sec. Follow
the moving subject through the viewfinder and press the shutter
button to take the picture. If you use a telephoto lens, hold it steady
to prevent camera shake.
To blur a flowing river or fountain
Use a slow shutter speed of 1/30 sec. or slower. Use a tripod to
prevent hand-held camera shake.
Set the shutter speed so that the aperture display does not
blink.
If you press the shutter button halfway and change
the shutter speed while the aperture is displayed,
the aperture display will also change to maintain the
same exposure (amount of light reaching the image
sensor). If you exceed the adjustable aperture
range, the aperture display will blink to indicate that
the standard exposure cannot be obtained.
If the exposure will be too dark, the maximum aperture (smallest
number) will blink. To obtain a standard exposure, turn the <6> dial
to the left to set a slower shutter speed or increase the ISO speed.
If the exposure will be too bright, the minimum aperture (highest
number) will blink. To obtain a standard exposure, turn the <6> dial
to the right to set a faster shutter speed or decrease the ISO speed.
D Using the Built-in Flash
To obtain a correct flash exposure, the flash output will be set
automatically (autoflash exposure) to match the automatically-set
aperture. The shutter speed can be set from 1/200 sec. to 30 sec.

Shooting Tips
When using an aperture with a high f/number or shooting in low
light scenes, note that camera shake can occur.
A higher aperture f/number will make the shutter speed slower.
Under low light, the shutter speed can be as long as 30 sec. In such
cases, increase the ISO speed and hold the camera steady or use a
tripod.
The depth of field depends not only on the aperture, but also on
the lens and on the subject distance.
Since wide-angle lenses have a wide depth of field (range of
acceptable focus in front of and behind the point of focus), you need
not set a high aperture f/number to obtain a sharp picture from the
foreground to the background. On the other hand, a telephoto lens
has a narrow depth of field.
And the closer the subject, the narrower the depth of field. A farther
subject will have a wider depth of field.
Set the aperture so that the shutter speed display does not
blink.
If you press the shutter button halfway and change
the aperture while the shutter speed is displayed,
the shutter speed display will also change to
maintain the same exposure (amount of light
reaching the image sensor). If you exceed the
adjustable shutter speed range, the shutter speed
display will blink to indicate that the standard
exposure cannot be obtained.
If the picture will be too dark, the “30"” (30 sec.) shutter speed
display will blink. To obtain a standard exposure, turn the <6> dial
to the left to set a lower aperture f/number or increase the ISO
speed.
If the picture will be too bright, the “4000” (1/4000 sec.) shutter
speed display will blink. To obtain a standard exposure, turn the
<6> dial to the right to set a higher aperture f/number or decrease
the ISO speed.
107
f: Changing the Depth of Field
D Using the Built-in Flash
To obtain a correct flash exposure, the flash output will be set
automatically to match the set aperture (autoflash exposure). The
shutter speed will be set automatically between 1/200 sec. - 30 sec. to
suit the scene’s brightness.
In low light, the main subject is exposed with the auto flash metering,
and the background is exposed with a slow shutter speed set
automatically. Both the subject and background look properly exposed
(automatic slow-speed flash sync). If you are handholding the camera,
keep it steady to prevent camera shake. Using a tripod is recommended.
To prevent a slow shutter speed, under [53: Custom Functions
(C.Fn)], set [3: Flash sync. speed in Av mode] to [1: 1/200-1/60 sec.

3 Depth of Field PreviewN
The aperture opening (diaphragm) changes only at the moment when
the picture is taken. Otherwise, the aperture remains fully open.
Therefore, when you look at the scene through the viewfinder or on the
LCD monitor, the depth of field will look narrow. With the procedure
below, you can check the depth of field before taking the picture.
1 Enable depth-of-field preview to be used.
Under [53: Custom Functions (C.Fn)], set [9: Assign SET
button] to [4: Depth-of-field preview] (p.264).
For details about Custom Function settings, see page 256.

If [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.119) is set to any setting other than
[Disable], the image may still look bright even if a darker exposure has
been set.
If ISO Auto is set, the ISO speed setting will change to suit the shutter
speed and aperture in order to obtain a standard exposure. Therefore,
you may not obtain the desired exposure effect.

The shutter speed can be set from 1/200 sec. to 30 sec or bulb.
BULB: Bulb Exposures
Elapsed exposure time
A bulb exposure keeps the shutter open
for as long as you hold down the shutter
button. It can be used to shoot fireworks
and other subjects requiring long
exposures.
In step 3 on the preceding page, turn the
<6> dial to the left to set <BULB>.
The elapsed exposure time will be
displayed on the LCD monitor.
During the bulb exposure, do not point the camera toward an intense
light source, such as the sun on a sunny day or an intense artificial light
source. Doing so may damage the image sensor or the camera’s internal
components.
Since bulb exposures produce more noise than usual, the image may
look slightly grainy.
You can reduce the noise due to long exposures by setting [4: Long exp.
noise reduction] under [53: Custom Functions (C.Fn)] to [1: Auto] or
[2: On] (p.260).
If ISO Auto is set for a bulb exposure, the ISO speed will be fixed at ISO
800 (p.90).
For bulb exposures, using a tripod and a remote switch (sold separately,
p.269) is recommended.

3 Correcting the Image’s Dark Corners
Due to the lens characteristics, the four corners of the picture may look
darker. This phenomenon is called lens light fall-off or drop in peripheral
illumination and can be corrected. The default setting is [Enable]. With

Lens Correction Data
The camera already contains lens peripheral illumination correction
data for approx. 25 lenses. In step 2, if you select [Enable], the
peripheral illumination correction will be applied automatically for any
lens whose correction data has been registered in the camera.
With EOS Utility (EOS software, p.319), 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, refer to
the EOS Utility Instruction Manual PDF (p.315) on the EOS Camera
Instruction Manuals Disk DVD-ROM.
Peripheral illumination correction cannot be applied to JPEG images
already taken.
Depending on shooting conditions, noise may appear on the image
periphery.
When using a non-Canon lens, setting the corrections to [Disable] is
recommended, even if [Correction data available] is displayed.
If you use the magnified view during Live View shooting, the peripheral
illumination correction will not be reflected in the image shown on the
LCD monitor.
If the effect of the correction is not visible, magnify the image after
shooting and check it again.
Corrections can be applied even when an Extender or Life-size
Converter 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 (EOS
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.

Bracketing Sequence
The images will be bracketed in the following sequence: 1. Standard
white balance, 2. Blue (B) bias, and 3. Amber (A) bias, or 1. Standard
white balance, 2. Magenta (M) bias, and 3. Green (G) bias.
During WB bracketing, the maximum burst for continuous shooting will be lower and the
number of possible shots will also decrease to approx. one-third the normal number.
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, it takes longer to record the shot to the card.
“BKT” stands for bracketing.

3 Setting the Color Reproduction RangeN
The range of reproducible colors is called the color space. With this
camera, you can set the color space for captured images to sRGB or
Adobe RGB. For normal shooting, sRGB is recommended.
In Basic Zone modes, sRGB is set automatically.

the desired color space.
2 SetSelect
[sRGB] or [Adobe RGB], then
press <0>.
Adobe RGB
This color space is mainly used for commercial printing and other
industrial uses. This setting is not recommended if you are not familiar
with image processing, Adobe RGB, and Design rule for Camera File
System 2.0 (Exif 2.21 or higher). The image will look very subdued in a
sRGB computer environment and with printers not compatible with
Design rule for Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21 or higher). Postprocessing of the image with computer 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. Refer to explanations about the ICC
profile in the Software Instruction Manual PDF (p.315) on the DVD-ROM.

Shooting with the LCD Monitor
(Live View Shooting)
You can shoot while viewing the picture on the camera’s
LCD monitor. This is called “Live View shooting”.
Live View shooting is effective for still subjects which do
not move.
If you handhold the camera and shoot while viewing the
LCD monitor, camera shake can cause blurred images.
Using a tripod is recommended.
Remote Live View Shooting
With EOS Utility (EOS software, p.319) installed on your computer,
you can connect the camera to the computer and shoot remotely
while viewing the computer screen. For details, refer to the Software
Instruction Manual PDF (p.315) on the DVD-ROM.

With a fully-charged Battery Pack LP-E10, continuous Live View shooting is
possible for approx. 1 hr. 25 min. at room temperature (23°C / 73°F).
Do not point the camera toward an intense light source, such as the sun
on a sunny day or an intense artificial light source. Doing so may
damage the image sensor or the camera’s internal components.
Cautions for using Live View shooting are on pages 151-152.
When flash is used, there will be two shutter sounds, but only one shot
will be taken. Also, the time to take the picture after you press the shutter
button completely will be slightly longer than with viewfinder shooting.
If the camera is not operated for a prolonged period, the power will turn
off automatically after the time set in [51: Auto power off] (p.181). If
[51: Auto power off] is set to [Disable], Live View shooting will end
automatically after 30 min. (camera power remains on).
With an HDMI cable (sold separately), you can display the Live View
image on a TV set (p.222).

the following aspect ratios are set: [4:3] [16:9] [1:1].
JPEG images will be saved with the set aspect ratio. RAW images
will always be saved with the [3:2] aspect ratio. The selected aspect
ratio information is added to the RAW image file. When you process
the RAW image with the EOS software, this allows you to generate
an image with the same aspect ratio that was set for shooting. In the
case of the [4:3], [16:9], and [1:1] aspect ratios, the aspect-ratio

AF Operation
Focusing will take longer than with [Quick mode].
Even when focus has been achieved, pressing the shutter button
halfway will focus again.
You cannot focus a moving subject continuously.
The image brightness may change during and after the AF
operation.
If the light source changes while the Live View image is displayed,
the screen may flicker and focusing may be difficult. If this happens,
exit Live View shooting and execute autofocus under the actual light
source.
When [FlexiZone - Single] is set and you press the <u> button, the
area covered by the AF point will be magnified. Press the shutter
button halfway to focus while in the magnified view. This is effective
when the camera is attached to a tripod and you need to attain very
precise focus. If focusing is difficult in magnified view, return to the
normal display and use AF. Note that the AF speed may differ
between the normal and magnified views.
If you magnify the view after focusing with [FlexiZone - Single] in
the normal view, precise focus may not be achieved.
If [uLive mode] is set, magnified view is not possible.

146
Using AF to Focus (AF Method)
If focus is not achieved with the shooting conditions on the preceding
page, set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
If you use AF with any of the following lenses, using [Quick mode] is
recommended. Autofocusing with [FlexiZone - Single] or [Live mode]
may take longer or correct focus may not be achieved.
EF50mm f/1.4 USM, EF50mm f/1.8 II, EF50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro,
EF100mm f/2.8 Macro USM, EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 III,
EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 III USM
For information on discontinued lenses, refer to your local Canon website.
If you shoot a peripheral subject and it is slightly out of focus, aim the
center AF point over the subject to focus, focus again and then take the
picture.
The AF-assist beam will not be emitted. However, if an EX-series
Speedlite (sold separately) equipped with an LED light is used, the LED
light will turn on for AF-assist when necessary.
In magnified view, the higher the magnification, the more difficult
focusing will be, due to camera shake during handheld shooting (the
same as when the lens’s focus mode switch is set to <MF>). Using a
tripod is recommended.

Live View Shooting Cautions
Image Quality
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (such as dots of light and
banding) may become noticeable.
Shooting in high temperatures may cause noise and irregular colors in the image.
If Live View shooting is used continuously for a long period, the camera’s
internal temperature may rise, and image quality may deteriorate.
Always exit Live View shooting when you are not shooting.
If you shoot a long exposure while the camera’s internal temperature is
high, image quality may deteriorate. Exit Live View shooting and wait a
few minutes before shooting again.
White <s> and Red <E> Internal Temperature Warning Icons
If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged Live View shooting or
under a high ambient temperature, a white <s> or red <E> icon will appear.
The white <s> icon indicates that the image quality of still photos will
deteriorate. It is recommended that you temporarily exit Live View
shooting and allow the camera to cool down before shooting again.
The red <E> icon indicates that the Live View shooting will soon stop
automatically. If this happens, you will not be able to shoot again until the
camera’s internal temperature decreases. Exit Live View shooting or turn
off the power and let the camera rest for a while.
Using Live View shooting at a high temperature for a prolonged period
will cause the <s> or <E> icon to appear earlier. When you are not
shooting, turn off the camera.
If the camera’s internal temperature is high, the image quality of high ISO
speed images or long exposures may deteriorate even before the white
<s> icon is displayed.
Shooting Result
If you take the picture in magnified view, the exposure may not come out as
desired. Return to the normal view before taking the picture. In magnified view,
the shutter speed and aperture will be displayed in orange. Even if you take the
picture in magnified view, the image will be captured in the normal view range.
If [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.119) is set to other than [Disable],
the image may look bright even if a decreased exposure compensation
or decreased flash exposure compensation is set.
If you use a TS-E lens (except the TS-E17mm f/4L or TS-E24mm f/3.5L
II) and shift or tilt the lens or use an Extension Tube, the standard
exposure may not be obtained or an irregular exposure may result.
151
Live View Shooting Cautions
Live View Image
Under low- or bright-light conditions, the Live View image may not reflect
the brightness of the captured image.
Even if a low ISO speed is set, noise may be noticeable in the displayed
Live View image under low light. However, when you shoot, the image
recorded will have minimal noise. (The image quality of the Live View
image is different from that of the recorded image.)
If the light source (illumination) within the image changes, the screen
may flicker. If this happens, exit Live View shooting and resume Live
View shooting under the actual light source.
If you point the camera in a different direction, it may 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 may
appear black on the LCD monitor. However, the actual captured image
will correctly show the bright area.
In low light, if you set the [52: 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 in the actual image.
Custom Functions
During Live View shooting, some Custom Function settings will not take
effect (p.257).
Lens and Flash
During Live View shooting, focus preset for super telephoto lenses
cannot be used.
FE lock is not possible when the built-in flash or an external Speedlite is
used. Modeling flash will not work with an external Speedlite.
Do not hold the camera in the same position for long periods of time.
Even if the camera does not feel too hot, prolonged contact with the same
body part may cause skin redness, blistering or low-temperature contact
burns. The use of a tripod is recommended for people with circulation
problems or very sensitive skin, or when using the camera in very hot
places.

ISO Speed During Manual Exposure Shooting
With [Auto], the ISO speed will be set automatically within ISO 100 ISO 6400.
You can set the ISO speed manually within ISO 100 - ISO 6400 in
whole-stop increments.
If [Z1:kHighlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], the ISO

Changing the shutter speed or aperture during movie shooting is not
recommended since the changes in the exposure will be recorded.
If you change the shutter speed while shooting under fluorescent or LED
lighting, image flicker may be recorded.
With ISO Auto, the movie shooting can record a suitable exposure even
when the ambient brightness changes.
By pressing the <B> button, you can display the histogram.
When shooting a movie of a moving subject, a shutter speed of 1/30 sec.

Notes on Movie Shooting
Do not hold the camera in the same position for long periods of time.
Even if the camera does not feel too hot, prolonged contact with the same
body part may cause skin redness, blistering or low-temperature contact
burns. The use of a tripod is recommended for people with circulation
problems or very sensitive skin, or when using the camera in very hot
places.
Do not point the camera toward an intense light source, such as the sun
on a sunny day or an intense artificial light source. Doing so may
damage the image sensor or the camera’s internal components.
If <Q> is set and the ISO speed or aperture changes during movie
shooting, the white balance may also change.
If you shoot a movie under fluorescent or LED lighting, the movie may
flicker.
Zooming the lens during movie shooting is not recommended. Zooming
the lens can cause changes in the exposure regardless of whether the
lens’s maximum aperture changes or not. Exposure changes may be
recorded as a result.
Pressing the <u> button during movie shooting will not magnify the
image.
Be careful not to cover the microphone (p.154) with your finger, etc.
Cautions for movie shooting are on pages 177 and 178.
If necessary, also read the Live View shooting cautions on pages
151 and 152.
Movie-related settings are under the [Z1], [Z2], and [Z3] tabs
(p.172).
A movie file is recorded each time you shoot a movie.
The movie image’s field of view is approx. 100% (with movie recording
size set to [A]).
Monaural sound is recorded by the camera’s built-in microphone (p.154).
With a fully-charged Battery Pack LP-E10, the total movie shooting time
will be as follows: approx. 1 hr. 15 min. at room temperature (23°C/73°F),
and approx. 1 hr. 10 min. at low temperatures (0°C/32°F).
During movie shooting, focus preset for super telephoto lenses cannot
be used.

Movie Shooting Cautions
White <s> and Red <E> Internal Temperature Warning Icons
If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged movie
shooting or under a high ambient temperature, a white <s> or red <E>
icon will appear.
The white <s> icon indicates that the image quality of still photos will
deteriorate. It is recommended that you stop still photo shooting for a
while and allow the camera to cool down. Since movie image quality will
hardly be affected, you can still shoot movies.
The red <E> icon indicates that movie shooting will soon be terminated
automatically. If this happens, you will not be able to shoot again until the
camera’s internal temperature decreases. Turn off the power and let the
camera rest for a while.
Shooting a movie at a high temperature for a prolonged period will cause
the <s> or <E> icon to appear earlier. When you are not shooting, turn
off the camera.
Recording and Image Quality
If the attached lens has an Image Stabilizer and you set the Image
Stabilizer (IS) switch to <1>, the Image Stabilizer will operate at all
times even if you do not press the shutter button halfway. The Image
Stabilizer consumes battery power and may shorten the total movie
shooting time or decrease the number of possible shots. If you use a
tripod or if the Image Stabilizer is not necessary, it is recommended that
you set the IS switch to <2>.
The camera’s built-in microphone will also pick up camera operation
noise.
If the brightness changes during autoexposure movie shooting or if AF
operates during movie shooting, that part may look momentarily still
when you play back the movie.
If there is a very bright light source in the picture, the bright area may
appear black on the LCD monitor. The movie will be recorded in almost
the same way you see it on the LCD monitor.
In low light, noise or irregular colors may appear in the image. The movie
will be recorded in almost the same way you see it on the LCD monitor.
177
Movie Shooting Cautions
Recording and Image Quality
If you use a card with a slow writing speed, a five-level
indicator may 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.
Indicator
If the card has a fast writing speed, the indicator will either
not appear or the level (if displayed) will hardly go upward.
First, shoot a few test movies to see if the card can write fast enough.
If you take still photos during movie shooting, the movie shooting may
stop. Setting a low image-recording quality for still images may resolve
this problem.
Still Photo Shooting During Movie Shooting
Regarding the image quality of still photos, see “Image Quality” on page
151.
Playback and TV set connection
If you connect the camera to a TV set with an HDMI cable (p.222) and
shoot a movie at [1920x1080] or [1280x720], the movie being shot will
be displayed in a small size on the TV set. The movie will still be
recorded in the movie-recording size that was set.
If you connect the camera to a TV set (p.222) and shoot a movie, the TV
set will not output any sound during the shooting. However, the sound
will be properly recorded.

Folders
As with “100CANON” for example, the folder name starts with three digits
(the folder number) followed by five alphanumeric characters. A folder can
contain up to 9999 images (file number 0001 - 9999). When a folder
becomes full, a new folder with the folder number increased by one is
created automatically. Also, if manual reset (p.185) is executed, a new
folder will be created automatically. Folders numbered from 100 to 999 can
be created.
Creating Folders with a 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 format
“100ABC_D”. The first three digits are the folder number, from 100 to 999.
The final five characters can be any combination of upper- and lower-case
letters from A to Z, numerals, and the underscore “_”. The space cannot be
used. Also note that two folder names cannot share the same three-digit
folder number (for example, “100ABC_D” and “100W_XYZ”), even if the
remaining five characters in each name are different.

3 File Numbering Methods
The image files will be numbered from 0001 to 9999 in the order the
images are taken, then saved in a folder. You can change how the file
number is assigned.
The file number will appear on your computer in this format:
IMG_0001.JPG.
Under the [51] tab, select [File
numbering], then press <0>. The
available settings are described below.
Select the option, then press <0>.
[Continuous]: The file numbering continues in sequence even
after you replace the card or create a folder.
Even after you replace the card or create a new folder, the file
numbering continues in sequence up to 9999. This is convenient
when you want to save images numbered anywhere between 0001
to 9999 in multiple cards or folders into one folder in your computer.
If the replacement card or existing folder already contains images
recorded previously, the file numbering of the new images may
continue from the file numbering of the existing images on the card
or in the folder. If you want to use continuous file numbering, it is
recommended that you use a newly-formatted card each time.

[Auto reset]: The file numbering restarts from 0001 each time
the card is replaced or a new folder is created.
When you replace the card or create a folder, the file numbering
restarts from 0001 for the new images saved. This is convenient if
you want to organize images according to cards or folders.
If the replacement card or existing folder already contains images
recorded previously, the file numbering of the new images may
continue from the file numbering of the existing images on the card
or in the folder. If you want to save images with the file numbering
starting from 0001, use a newly formatted card each time.

File numbering is reset
[Manual reset]: To reset the file numbering to 0001 manually or
to start from file number 0001 in a new folder.
When you reset the file numbering manually, a new folder is created
automatically and the file numbering of images saved to that folder
starts from 0001.
This is convenient if you want to use different folders for the images
taken yesterday and the ones taken today, for example. After the
manual reset, the file numbering returns to continuous or auto reset.
(There will be no manual reset confirmation screen.)
If the file number in folder 999 reaches 9999, shooting will not be possible
even if the card still has storage capacity. The LCD monitor will display a
message telling you to replace the card. Replace it with a new card.
For both JPEG and RAW images, the file name will start with “IMG_”. Movie
file names will start with “MVI_”. The extension will be “.JPG” for JPEG
images, “.CR2” for RAW images, and “. MOV” for movies.

Cautions for Radio Transmission Wireless Flash Shooting
• Radio transmission wireless flash shooting cannot be set with the
camera. Use the Speedlite to set the function.
• Set flash sync speed to 1/100 or less.
• High-speed synchronization is not possible.
• Group flash is not possible.
The camera may not be able to set some of the functions of [Flash
mode], [Zoom], and [MULTI flash], depending on the Speedlite model
used. In such a case, use the Speedlite to set the functions.
195
3 Setting the FlashN
Flash mode
When using an external Speedlite, 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] enables you to set the
flash output yourself. This is for
advanced users.
Regarding other flash modes, refer to
the instruction manual of an external
Speedlite compatible with the
functions.
Shutter synchronization
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 shutter
closes. When this is combined with a slow shutter speed, you can
create a trail of light such as from car headlights at night. With E-TTL
II (autoflash exposure), two flashes will be fired: Once when you
press the shutter button completely, and once immediately before
the exposure ends. Also, with shutter speeds faster than 1/30 sec.,
1st curtain synchronization will automatically take effect.
If an external Speedlite is attached, you can also select [Hi-speed]
(e). For details, refer to the Speedlite’s instruction manual.
Flash exposure compensation
See “Flash Exposure Compensation” on page 113.
E-TTL II flash metering
For normal flash exposures, set it to [Evaluative]. [Average] is for
advanced users. As with an external Speedlite, the metering is
averaged for the entire area. Flash exposure compensation may be
necessary.

3 Appending Dust Delete DataN
Dusts entering the camera can adhere to the image sensor and cause
dust spots to be visible on the captured images. To erase these dust
spots, you can append the Dust Delete Data to the images. The Dust
Delete Data is used by Digital Photo Professional (EOS software,
p.319) to erase the dust spots automatically.
Preparation
Prepare a solid white object such as a sheet of paper.
Set the lens focal length to 50 mm or longer.
Set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF> and set the focus to
infinity (u). If the lens has no distance scale, look at the front of the
lens and turn the focusing ring clockwise all the way.

3 Shoot
At a distance of 20 cm - 30 cm (0.7 ft. 1.0 ft.), fill the viewfinder with a
patternless, solid-white object and take
a picture.
X The picture will be taken in aperturepriority AE mode at an aperture of f/22.
Since the image will not be saved, the
data can still be obtained even if there
is no card in the camera.
X When the picture is taken, the camera
will start collecting the Dust Delete
Data. When the Dust Delete Data is
obtained, a message will appear.
Select [OK], and the menu will reappear.
If the data was not obtained
successfully, an error message will
appear. Follow the “Preparation”
procedure on the preceding page, then
select [OK]. Take the picture again.
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, it is
recommended that you update the Dust Delete Data by obtaining it again.
For details about using Digital Photo Professional (EOS software,
p.319) to erase dust spots, refer to the Software Instruction Manual
PDF (p.315) on the DVD-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 EOS software.
199
3 Manual Sensor CleaningN
If dusts adhere to the image sensor and dust spots appear on the
images, you can clean the image sensor yourself with a camera blower.
Before cleaning the sensor, detach the lens from the camera.
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.

3 Manual Sensor CleaningN
While cleaning the sensor, never do any of the following. If the
power is cut off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains and
image sensor may get damaged.
• Setting the power switch to <2>.
• Opening the card slot/battery compartment 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 may get damaged.
Never use pressurized air or gas to clean the sensor. The blowing force
can damage the sensor or the spray gas can freeze on the sensor and
scratch it.
If the battery level becomes low while you clean the sensor, the beeper
will sound as a warning. Stop cleaning the sensor.
If a smudge that cannot be removed with a blower remains, having the
sensor cleaned by a Canon Service Center is recommended.

Playback on a TV Set
(p.222)
An HDMI cable (sold separately) is
necessary to connect the camera to a
TV set. Also, an HDMI terminal on a
TV set is required.
When the camera is connected to a TV
set with an HDMI cable, you can play
back movies and still photos on the TV
set.
If you have a High-Definition TV set and
connect your camera with an HDMI
cable, you can watch Full High-Definition
(Full HD: 1920x1080) and HighDefinition (HD: 1280x720) movies with
higher image quality.
The camera does not have an audio/video OUT terminal. Therefore, the
camera cannot be connected to a TV set with an analog AV cable.
Since hard disk recorders do not have an HDMI IN terminal, the camera
cannot be connected to a hard disk recorder with an HDMI cable.
Even if you connect the camera to a hard disk recorder with a USB
cable, you cannot play or save movies and still photos.
If the playback device is not compatible with MOV files, the movie cannot
be played back.

k Enjoying Movies
Playback on the Camera’s LCD Monitor
(p.214-221)
You can play back movies on the
camera’s LCD monitor. You can also edit
out the movie’s first and last scenes, and
play back the still photos and movies on
the card in an automatic slide show.
A movie edited with a computer cannot be rewritten to the card and played
back with the camera. However, video snapshot albums edited with EOS
Video Snapshot Task (p.171) can be played on the camera.
Playback and Editing with a Computer
(p.319)
The movie files recorded on the card can
be transferred to a computer and played
back with ImageBrowser EX (EOS
software).
To have the movie play back smoothly on a computer, use a highperformance computer. Regarding the computer hardware requirements
for ImageBrowser EX, refer to the ImageBrowser EX User Guide (PDF).
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 manufacturer.

the image’s brightness level. The horizontal axis
indicates the brightness level (darker on the left and

checking the image and its brightness histogram, you
can see the exposure level inclination and the overall gradation.
[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. 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. If there are too many pixels on the right,
the color will be too saturated with no gradation. By checking the
image’s RGB histogram, you can see the color’s saturation and
gradation condition, as well as white balance inclination.

U Applying Creative Filters
Creative Filter Characteristics
Grainy B/W
Creates a grainy black-and-white photo. You can change the blackand-white effect by adjusting the contrast.
Soft focus
Gives the image a soft look. You can change the degree of softness
by adjusting the blur.
Fish-eye effect
Gives the effect of a fish-eye lens. The image will have a barrel-type
distortion.
Depending on the level of this filter effect, the area trimmed along
the periphery of the image changes. Also, since this filter effect will
magnify the image center, the apparent resolution at the center may
degrade depending on the number of recorded pixels. Set the filter
effect in step 4 while checking the resulting image.
Toy camera effect
Darkens the photo’s corners and applies a color tone that makes it
look as if it was shot by a toy camera. You can change the color cast
by adjusting the color tone.
Miniature effect
Creates a diorama effect. You can change where the image looks
sharp. In step 4 on page 234, if you press the <B> button, you

C.Fn I: Exposure
C.Fn-1
Exposure level increments
0: 1/3-stop
1: 1/2-stop
Sets 1/2-stop increments for the shutter speed, aperture, exposure
compensation, AEB, flash exposure compensation, etc. This is
effective when you prefer to control the exposure in less fine
increments than 1/3-stop.
With setting 1, the exposure level will be displayed in the viewfinder and on

3 Custom Function SettingsN
C.Fn-3
Flash sync. speed in Av mode
You can set the flash sync speed for flash photography in the aperturepriority AE (f) mode.
0: Auto
The flash sync speed is set automatically within a range of 1/200
sec. to 30 sec. to suit the scene’s brightness. With an external
Speedlite, high-speed sync will also be possible.
1: 1/200-1/60 sec. auto
Prevents a slow shutter speed from being set 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 may come out dark.
2: 1/200 sec. (fixed)
The flash sync speed is fixed to 1/200 sec. This more effectively
prevents subject blur and camera shake than with [1/200-1/60
sec. auto]. However, in low light, the subject’s background will
come out darker than with [1/200-1/60 sec. auto].
When 1 or 2 is set, high-speed sync cannot be used with an external
Speedlite.
259
3 Custom Function SettingsN
C.Fn II: Image
C.Fn-4
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 [2: On] setting may be effective for noise that cannot be
detected or reduced with the [1: Auto] setting.
With settings 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 may be more pronounced with setting 2
than with setting 0 or 1.
With setting 1 or 2, if a long exposure is shot with the Live View image
displayed, “BUSY” will be displayed during the noise reduction process.
The Live View display will not appear until the noise reduction is
completed. (You cannot take another picture.)
260
3 Custom Function SettingsN
C.Fn-5
High ISO speed noise reduction
Reduces the noise generated in the image. Although the noise
reduction is applied at all ISO speeds, it is particularly effective at high
ISO speeds. At low ISO speeds, the noise in the darker parts of the
image (shadow areas) is further reduced. Change the setting to suit
the noise level.
0: Standard
2: Strong
1: Low
3: Disable
With setting 2, the maximum burst during continuous shooting will greatly
decrease. Also, the continuous shooting speed may be slower.
If you play back a 1 or 1+73 image with the camera or print an
image directly, the effect of the high ISO speed noise reduction may look
minimal. You can check the noise reduction effect or print noise-reduced
images with Digital Photo Professional (EOS software, p.319).
C.Fn-6
Highlight tone priority
0: Disable
1: Enable
Improves the highlight detail. The dynamic range is expanded from
the standard 18% gray to bright highlights. The gradation between
the grays and highlights becomes smoother.
With setting 1, the Auto Lighting Optimizer (p.119) is automatically set to
[Disable] and the setting cannot be changed.
With setting 1, noise (grainy image, banding, etc.) may become slightly
more pronounced than with setting 0.
With setting 1, the ISO speed settable range will be ISO 200 - ISO 6400.
Also, the <A> icon will be displayed on the LCD monitor and in the
viewfinder when highlight tone priority is enabled.

C.Fn III: Autofocus/Drive
C.Fn-7
AF-assist beam firing
Enables or disables the AF-assist beam of the built-in flash or the
EOS-dedicated external Speedlites.
0: Enable
The AF-assist beam will be emitted when necessary.
1: Disable
The AF-assist beam is not emitted. This prevents the AF-assist
beam from disturbing others.
2: Enable external flash only
If an external Speedlite is attached, it will emit the AF-assist beam
when necessary. The camera’s built-in flash will not fire the AFassist beam.
3: IR AF assist beam only
When an external Speedlite is attached, only an infrared AF-assist
beam will be emitted. This prevents any Speedlite which uses a
series of intermittent flashes (like the built-in flash) from firing the
AF-assist beam.
With an EX-series Speedlite equipped with an LED light, the LED
light will not automatically turn on for AF-assist.
If an external Speedlite’s [AF-assist beam firing] Custom Function is set
to [Disabled], the Speedlite will not emit the AF-assist beam even if the
camera’s C.Fn-7 is set to 0, 2, or 3.

F Using the Remote Switch
Remote Switch RS-60E3 (sold separately) comes with an approx. 60 cm/
2.0 ft cord. When connected to the camera’s remote control terminal, it
can be pressed halfway and completely, just like the shutter button.
Remote Controller RC-6, RC-1, and RC-5 (all sold separately) cannot be
used with this camera.
Using the Eyepiece Cover
When you use the self-timer, bulb, or Remote Switch and do not look
through the viewfinder, stray light entering the viewfinder can cause the
image to look dark. To prevent this, use the eyepiece cover (p.29)
attached to the camera strap.
During Live View shooting and movie shooting, attaching the
eyepiece cover is unnecessary.

External Speedlites
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, refer to the EX-series Speedlite’s
instruction manual. This camera is a Type-A camera that can use all
the features of EX-series Speedlites.
Shoe-mount Speedlites
Macro Lites
With an EX-series Speedlite not compatible with flash function settings
(p.195), only [Flash exp. comp] and [E-TTL II meter.] can be set for
[External flash func. setting]. ([Shutter sync.] can also be set with
certain EX-series Speedlites.)
If flash exposure compensation is set with the external Speedlite, the
flash exposure compensation icon displayed on the camera’s LCD
monitor will change from y to 0.
If the external Speedlite’s Custom Function has the flash metering mode
set to TTL autoflash, the flash will fire at full output only.
270
External Speedlites
Canon Speedlites Other Than the EX-series
With an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlite set in TTL or A-TTL
autoflash mode, the flash can be fired at full output only.
Set the camera’s shooting mode to <a> (manual exposure) or
<f> (aperture-priority AE) and adjust the aperture setting before
shooting.
When using a Speedlite that has manual flash mode, shoot in the
manual flash mode.
Using Non-Canon Flash Units
Sync Speed
The camera can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash units at
1/200 sec. or slower shutter speeds. Use a sync speed slower than
1/200 sec.
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 may
not fire.
271
H Using Eye-Fi Cards
With a commercially-available Eye-Fi card already set up, you can
automatically transfer captured images to a computer or upload them to
an online service via a wireless LAN.
The image transfer is a function of the Eye-Fi card. For instructions on
how to set up and use the Eye-Fi card or to troubleshoot any image
transfer problems, refer to the Eye-Fi card’s instruction manual or
contact the card manufacturer.
The camera is not guaranteed to support Eye-Fi card functions
(including wireless transfer). In case of an issue with an Eye-Fi
card, please check with the card manufacturer. Also note that
approval is required to use Eye-Fi cards in many countries or
regions. Without approval, use of the card is not permitted. If it
is unclear whether the card has been approved for use in your
area, please check with the card manufacturer.

Cautions for Using Eye-Fi Cards
If “J” is displayed, an error occurred while retrieving the card
information. Turn the camera’s power switch off, and on again.
Even if [51: Eye-Fi trans.] is set to [Disable], it may still transmit a
signal. In hospitals, airports, and other places where wireless
transmissions are prohibited, remove the Eye-Fi card from the camera.
If the image transfer does not function, check the Eye-Fi card and
computer settings. For details, refer to the card’s instruction manual.
Depending on the wireless LAN’s connection conditions, the image
transfer may take longer or it may be interrupted.
Because of the transmission function, the Eye-Fi card may become hot.
The battery power will be consumed faster.
During the image transfer, auto power off will not take effect.
If you insert a wireless LAN card other than an Eye-Fi card, [51: Eye-Fi
settings] will not appear on the menu. Also, the transmission status icon
<H> will not appear on the LCD monitor.

Troubleshooting Guide
If a problem occurs with the camera, 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.
Do not use any battery pack other than a genuine Canon Battery Pack
LP-E10.
The battery charger’s lamp blinks.
If the battery charger has a problem, the protection circuit will stop the
charging and the charge lamp will blink in orange. If this happens,
unplug the charger’s power plug from the power outlet and detach the
battery pack. Attach the battery pack to the charger again and wait a
while before connecting the charger to a power outlet again.
The camera does not operate even when the power
switch is set to <1>.
Make sure the battery is properly installed in the camera (p.32).
Make sure the card slot/battery compartment cover is closed (p.32).
Recharge the battery (p.30).
Press the <B> button (p.52).
The access lamp still remains on or blinks even when
the power switch is set to <2>.
If the power is turned off while an image is being recorded to the card,
the access lamp will remain on or continue to blink for a few seconds.
When the image recording is completed, the power will turn off
automatically.
284
Troubleshooting Guide
The battery becomes exhausted quickly.
Use a fully-charged battery pack (p.30).
The rechargeable battery pack performance will degrade over
repeated use. Purchase a new one.
The number of possible shots will decrease with any of the following
operations:
• Pressing the shutter button halfway for a prolonged period.
• Activating the AF frequently without taking a picture.
• Using the lens’s Image Stabilizer.
• Using the LCD monitor frequently.
• Continuing Live View shooting or movie shooting for a prolonged
period.
• Leaving the Eye-Fi card communication function on.
The camera turns off by itself.
Auto power off is in effect. If you do not want auto power off to take
effect, set [51: Auto power off] to [Disable] (p.181).
Even if [51: Auto power off] is set to [Disable], the LCD monitor will
still turn off after the camera is left idle for 30 min. (The camera’s
power does not turn off.) Press the <B> button to turn on the LCD
monitor.
Shooting-Related Problems
The lens cannot be attached.
The camera cannot be used with EF-M lenses (p.40).
285
Troubleshooting Guide
No images can be shot or recorded.
Make sure the card is properly inserted (p.32).
Slide the card’s write-protect switch to the write/erase position (p.32).
If the card is full, replace the card or delete unnecessary images to
make space (p.32, 227).
If you try to focus in the One-Shot AF while the focus confirmation light
<o> in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be taken. Press the
shutter button halfway again to refocus automatically, or focus
manually (p.45, 97).
The card cannot be used.
If a card error message is displayed, see page 34 or 296.
The image is out of focus.
Set the lens’s focus mode switch to <AF> (p.40).
To prevent camera shake, press the shutter button gently (p.44, 45).
If the lens has an Image Stabilizer, set the IS switch to <1>.
In low light, the shutter speed may become slow. Use a faster shutter
speed (p.104), set a higher ISO speed (p.88), use flash (p.101), or use
a tripod.
I cannot lock the focus and recompose the shot.
Set the AF operation to One-Shot AF. Focus lock is not possible in the
AI Servo AF, or when servo takes effect in AI Focus AF (p.93).
286
Troubleshooting Guide
Horizontal stripes appear, or the exposure
or color tone look strange.
Horizontal stripes (noise) or irregular exposures can be caused by
fluorescent light, LED bulbs, or other light sources during viewfinder or
Live View shooting. Also, the exposure or color tone may not come out
properly. A slow shutter speed may solve the problem.
The standard exposure cannot be obtained or the
exposure is irregular.
During viewfinder shooting or Live View shooting, if you use a TS-E
lens (except the TS-E17mm f/4L or TS-E24mm f/3.5L II) and shift or tilt
the lens or use an Extension Tube, the standard exposure may not be
obtained or the exposure may be irregular.
The continuous shooting speed is slow.
Depending on the lens type, shutter speed, aperture, subject
conditions, brightness, etc., the continuous shooting speed may
become slower.
The maximum burst during continuous shooting is lower.
Under [53: Custom Functions (C.Fn)], set [5: High ISO speed
noise reduct’n] to [0: Standard], [1: Low], or [3: Disable]. If it is set to
[2: Strong], the maximum burst during continuous shooting will greatly
decrease (p.261).
During WB bracketing, the maximum burst for continuous shooting will
decrease (p.130).
If you shoot something that has fine detail (such as a field of grass),
the file size will be larger and the actual maximum burst may be lower
than the numbers listed on page 85.
287
Troubleshooting Guide
ISO 100 cannot be set.
Under [53: Custom Functions (C.Fn)], if [6: Highlight tone priority]
is set to [1: Enable], ISO 100 cannot be set. If [0: Disable] is set, ISO
100 can be set (p.261). This also applies to movie shooting (p.173).
ISO speed [H] (equivalent to ISO 12800) cannot be set.
Under [53: Custom Functions (C.Fn)], if [6: Highlight tone priority]
is set to [1: Enable], the [H] ISO speed (equivalent to ISO 12800)
cannot be selected even when [2: ISO expansion] is set to [1: On]. If
[6: Highlight tone priority] is set to [0: Disable], [H] can be set
(p.261).
The Auto Lighting Optimizer cannot be set.
Under [53: Custom Functions (C.Fn)], if [6: Highlight tone priority]
is set to [1: Enable], Auto Lighting Optimizer cannot be set. If [0:
Disable] is set, the Auto Lighting Optimizer can be set (p.261).
Even though I set a decreased exposure compensation,
the image comes out bright.
Set [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] to [Disable]. When [Standard],
[Low] or [High] is set, even if you set a decreased exposure
compensation or flash exposure compensation, the image may come
out bright (p.119).
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. To prevent a slow
shutter speed, under [53: Custom Functions (C.Fn)], set [3: Flash
sync. speed in Av mode] to [1: 1/200-1/60 sec. auto] or [2: 1/200
sec. (fixed)] (p.259).
288
Troubleshooting Guide
The built-in flash is raised by itself.
In shooting modes (<A> <C> <2> <4> <6>) whose default
settings are <a> (Auto flash), the built-in flash will rise automatically
when necessary.
The built-in flash does not fire.
If you shoot continuously with the built-in flash at short intervals, the
flash may stop firing to protect the flash unit.
The flash always fires at full output.
If you use a flash unit other than an EX-series Speedlite, the flash will
always be fired at full output (p.271).
Under [z1: Flash control], if [Flash metering mode] for [External
flash C.Fn setting] is set to [TTL], the flash will always fire at full
output (p.197).
I cannot set flash exposure compensation when
using an external Speedlite.
If flash exposure compensation has already been set with the external
Speedlite, flash exposure compensation cannot be set with the
camera. When the external Speedlite’s flash exposure compensation
is canceled (set to 0), flash exposure compensation can be set with
the camera.
High-speed sync cannot be set in the <f> mode.
Under [53: Custom Functions (C.Fn)], set [3: Flash sync. speed in
Av mode] to [0: Auto] (p.259).
289
Troubleshooting Guide
The camera makes a noise when it is shaken.
The built-in flash’s pop-up mechanism moves slightly. This is normal
and not a malfunction.
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.135).
During Live View and movie shooting, a white <s> or
red <E> icon is displayed.
It indicates that the camera’s internal temperature is high. If the white
<s> icon is displayed, the still photo’s image quality may deteriorate.
If the red <E> icon is displayed, it indicates that the Live View or
movie shooting will soon stop automatically (p.151, 177).
Movie shooting stops by itself.
If the card’s writing speed is slow, movie shooting may stop
automatically. Use an SD Speed Class 6 “
” or faster card. To
find out the card’s reading/writing speed, refer to the card
manufacturer’s website, etc.
If a movie clip’s file size reaches 4 GB or the shooting length reaches
29 min. 59 sec., the movie shooting will stop automatically.
The ISO speed cannot be set for movie shooting.
If [Z1: Movie exposure] is set to [Auto], the ISO speed will be set
automatically. If [Manual] is set, you can set the ISO speed manually
(p.156).
290
Troubleshooting Guide
The exposure changes during movie shooting.
If you change the shutter speed or aperture during movie shooting, the
changes in the exposure may be recorded.
Zooming the lens during movie shooting can cause changes in the
exposure regardless of whether the lens’ maximum aperture changes
or not. The changes in the exposure may be recorded as a result.
The subject looks distorted during movie shooting.
If you move the camera to the left or right quickly (high-speed panning)
or shoot a moving subject, the image may look distorted.
The image flickers or horizontal stripes appear during
movie shooting.
Flickering, horizontal stripes (noise), or irregular exposures can be
caused by fluorescent light, LED bulbs, or other light sources during
movie shooting. Also, changes in the exposure (brightness) or color
tone may be recorded. With manual exposure, a slow shutter speed
may solve the problem.
Display Problems
The menu screen shows fewer tabs and options.
In Basic Zone modes and in movie shooting mode, certain tabs and
menu options are not displayed. Set the shooting mode to a Creative
Zone mode (p.48).
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.131).
291
Troubleshooting Guide
The file name starts with “MVI_”.
It is a movie file (p.185).
The file numbering does not start from 0001.
If the card already contains recorded images, the image number may
not start from 0001 (p.184).
The shooting date and time displayed is incorrect.
Make sure the correct date and time has been set (p.37).
Check the time zone and daylight saving time (p.37).
The date and time is not in the picture.
The shooting date and time does not appear in the picture. The date
and time is recorded in the image data as shooting information. When
printing, you can imprint the date and time in the picture by using the
date and time recorded in the shooting information (p.245).
[###] is displayed.
If the card has recorded a number of images greater than the camera
can display, [###] will be displayed (p.209).
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 may look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.
[Eye-Fi settings] does not appear.
[Eye-Fi settings] will appear only when an Eye-Fi card is inserted in
the camera. If the Eye-Fi card has a write-protect switch set to the
LOCK position, you will not be able to check the card’s connection
status or disable Eye-Fi transmission (p.272).
292
Troubleshooting Guide
Playback Problems
Part of the image blinks in black.
It is the highlight alert (p.231). Overexposed highlight areas with a loss
of highlight detail will blink.
The image cannot be erased.
If the image is protected, it cannot be erased (p.225).
The movie cannot be played back.
Movies edited with a computer using ImageBrowser EX (p.319) or
other EOS software cannot be played back with the camera. However,
video snapshot albums edited with EOS Video Snapshot Task (p.171)
can be played back on the camera.
When the movie is played back, camera operation noise
can be heard.
If you operate the camera’s dials or lens during movie shooting, the
operation noise will also be recorded.
The movie has still moments.
During autoexposure movie shooting, if there is a drastic change in the
exposure level, the recording will stop momentarily until the brightness
stabilizes. In such cases, shoot movies with manual exposure (p.156).
I cannot connect the camera to my TV set.
An HDMI cable (sold separately) is necessary to connect the camera
to a TV set. Using the HDMI Cable HTC-100 (sold separately) is
recommended (p.222).
Also check that your TV set has an HDMI IN terminal. If the TV set
does not have an HDMI IN terminal and has only an A/V IN jack, the
camera cannot be connected.
293
Troubleshooting Guide
No image appears on the TV screen.
Make sure the HDMI cable’s plug is inserted all the way in (p.222).
My card reader does not recognize the card.
Depending on the card reader and computer OS used, SDXC cards
may not be correctly recognized. If this occurs, connect your camera
to the computer with the provided interface cable, then transfer the
images to your computer using EOS Utility (EOS software, p.319).
I cannot resize the image.
JPEG c and RAW images cannot be resized with the camera
(p.237).

Printing-Related Problems
There are fewer printing effects than listed
in the instruction manual.
Contents displayed on the screen differ depending on the printer. This
instruction manual lists all the printing effects available (p.244).
Computer Connection Problems
I cannot download images to a computer.
Install the EOS software (EOS Solution Disk CD-ROM) on the
computer (p.320-321).

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 hold the camera in the same position for long periods of time. Even if the
camera does not feel too hot, prolonged contact with the same body part may cause
skin redness, blistering or low-temperature contact burns. The use of a tripod is
recommended for people with circulation problems or very sensitive skin, or when
using the camera in very hot places.
• 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/3.3 feet away.
307
• 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.
• 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 away 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

• 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.
308
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.
