Safety Warnings
Follow these safeguards and use the equipment properly to prevent injury, death,
and material damage.
Preventing Serious Injury or Death
• To prevent fire, excessive heat, chemical leakage, and explosions, follow the
safeguards below:
- Do not use any batteries, power sources, and accessories not specified in this
booklet. Do not use any home-made or modified batteries.
- Do not short-circuit, disassemble, or modify the battery pack or back-up battery. Do
not apply heat or apply solder to the battery pack or back-up battery. Do not expose
the battery pack or back-up battery to fire or water. And do not subject the battery
pack or back-up battery to strong physical shock.
- Do not install the battery pack or back-up battery in reversed polarity (+ –). Do not
mix new and old or different types of batteries.
- Do not recharge the battery pack outside the allowable ambient temperature range
of 0°C - 40°C (32°F - 104°F). Also, do not exceed the recharging time.
- Do not insert any foreign metallic objects into the electrical contacts of the camera,
accessories, connecting cables, etc.
• Keep the back-up battery away from children. If a child swallows the battery, consult a
physician immediately. (Battery chemicals may harm the stomach and intestines.)
• When disposing of a battery pack or back-up battery, insulate the electrical contacts
with tape to prevent contact with other metallic objects or batteries. This is to prevent
fire or an explosion.
• If excessive heat, smoke, or fumes are emitted during battery pack recharging,
immediately unplug the battery charger from the power outlet to stop the recharging
and prevent a fire.
• If the battery pack or back-up battery leaks, changes color, deforms, or emits smoke or
fumes, remove it immediately. Be careful not to get burned in the process.
• Prevent any battery leakage from contacting your eyes, skin, and clothing. It can
cause blindness or skin problems. If the battery leakage contacts your eyes, skin, or
clothing, flush the affected area with lots of clean water without rubbing it. See a
physician immediately.
• During the recharging, keep the equipment away from the reach of children. The cord
can accidentally choke the child or give an electrical shock.
• Do not leave any cords near a heat source. It can deform the cord or melt the
insulation and cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not fire the flash at someone driving a car. It may cause an accident.
• Do not fire the flash near a person’s eyes. It may impair the person’s vision. When
using flash to photograph an infant, keep at least 1 meter away.
• Before storing the camera or accessory when not in use, remove the battery pack and
disconnect the power plug. This is to prevent electrical shock, heat generation, and
fire.
• Do not use the equipment where there is flammable gas. This is to prevent an
explosion or fire.
8
• If you drop the equipment and the casing breaks open to expose the internal parts, do
not touch the internal parts due to the possibility of electrical shock.
• Do not disassemble or modify the equipment. High-voltage internal parts can cause
electrical shock.
• Do not look at the sun or an extremely bright light source through the camera or lens.
Doing so may damage your vision.
• Keep the camera from the reach of small children. The neck strap can accidentally
choke the child.
• Do not store the equipment in dusty or humid places. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Before using the camera inside an airplane or hospital, check if it is allowed.
Electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the plane’s
instruments or the hospital’s medical equipment.
• To prevent fire and electrical shock, follow the safeguards below:
- Always insert the power plug all the way in.
- Do not handle a power plug with wet hands.
- When unplugging a power plug, grasp and pull the plug instead of the cord.
- Do not scratch, cut, or excessively bend the cord or put a heavy object on the cord.
Also do not twist or tie the cords.
- Do not connect too many power plugs to the same power outlet.
- Do not use a cord whose insulation has been damaged.
• Occasionally unplug the power plug and use a dry cloth to clean off the dust around
the power outlet. If the surrounding is dusty, humid, or oily, the dust on the power outlet
may become moist and short-circuit the outlet to cause a fire.
Preventing Injury or Equipment Damage
• Do not leave equipment inside a car under the hot sun or near a heat source. The
equipment may become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not carry the camera around while it is attached to a tripod. Doing so may cause
injury. Also make sure the tripod is sturdy enough to support the camera and lens.
• Do not leave a lens or lens-attached camera under the sun without the lens cap
attached. Otherwise, the lens may concentrate the sun’s rays and cause a fire.
• Do not cover or wrap the battery-recharging apparatus with a cloth. Doing so may trap
heat within and cause the casing to deform or catch fire.
• If you drop the camera in water or if water or metal fragments enter inside the camera,
promptly remove the battery pack and back-up battery. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Do not use or leave the battery pack or back-up battery in a hot environment. Doing so
may cause battery leakage or a shorter battery life. The battery pack or back-up
battery can also become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the equipment.
Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard.
If the product does not work properly or requires repair, contact
your dealer or your nearest Canon Service Center.

Handling Precautions
Camera Care
This camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physical
shock.
The camera is not waterproof and cannot be used underwater. If you
accidentally drop the camera into water, promptly consult your nearest
Canon Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry cloth. If the
camera has been exposed to salty air, wipe with a well-wrung wet cloth.
Never leave the camera near anything having a strong magnetic field such
as a magnet or electric motor. Also avoid using or leaving the camera near
anything emitting strong radio waves such as a large antenna. Strong
magnetic fields can cause camera misoperation or destroy image data.
Do not leave the camera in excessive heat such as in a car in direct sunlight.
High temperatures can cause the camera to malfunction.
The camera contains precision electronic circuitry. Never attempt to
disassemble the camera yourself.
Use a blower to blow away dust on the lens, viewfinder, mirror, and focusing
screen. Do not use cleaners that contain organic solvents to clean the
camera body or lens. For stubborn dirt, take the camera to a Canon Service
Center.
Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your fingers. This is to
prevent the contacts from corroding. Corroded contacts can cause camera
misoperation.
If the camera is suddenly brought in from the cold into a warm room,
condensation may form on the camera and internal parts. To prevent
condensation, first put the camera in a sealed plastic bag and let it adjust to
the warmer temperature before taking it out of the bag.
If condensation forms on the camera, do not use the camera. This is to avoid
damaging the camera. If this occurs, remove the lens, CF card and battery
from the camera, and wait until the condensation has evaporated before
using the camera.
If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery
and store the camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. Even while the
camera is in storage, press the shutter button a few times once in a while to
check that the camera is still working.
Avoid storing the camera where there are corrosive chemicals such as a
darkroom or chemical lab.
If the camera has not been used for an extended period, test all its functions
before using the camera. If you have not used the camera for some time or if
there is an important shoot coming up, have the camera checked by your
Canon dealer or check the camera yourself and make sure it is working
properly.
10
Handling Precautions
LCD Panel and LCD Monitor
Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision
technology with over 99.99% active pixels, there might be a few dead pixels
among the remaining 0.01% or less pixels. Dead pixels displaying only black
or red, etc., are not a malfunction. They do not affect the images recorded.
At low temperatures, the liquid-crystal display response may become slower.
And at high temperatures, the display may blacken. In either case, the
display will return to normal at room temperature.
CF Card
The CF card is a precision device. Do not drop the memory card or subject it
to vibration. Doing so could damage the images recorded on them.
Do not store or use a memory card near anything having a strong magnetic
field such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to
having static electricity. Otherwise, the images recorded on the CF card
might be lost.
Do not leave memory cards in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Doing so
can warp the cards and make them unusable.
Do not spill any liquid onto the CF card.
Always store your CF cards in a case to protect the data stored on them.
Do not bend the card or subject it to any excessive force or physical shock.
Do not store CF cards in hot, dusty, or humid locations.
Lens Electrical Contacts
Contacts
After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the lens
caps or put down the lens with the rear end up to avoid

Recharging the Battery
Do not recharge any battery pack other than Battery Pack BP-511A, BP514, BP-511, or BP-512.
If the battery is left in the camera for a prolonged period without the camera
being used, a low electrical current may be discharged excessively and the
battery’s service life may be affected. When not using the camera, remove
the battery and attach the protective cover to prevent shorting. Before
using the camera again, be sure to recharge the battery.
Storing the battery while fully charged may reduce its service life or
performance.
Battery Packs BP-511A, BP-514, BP-511, and BP-512 are dedicated to
Canon products. Using them with a non-Canon battery charger or
product may result in malfunction or accidents for which Canon cannot
be held liable.
Do not use the battery charger with any power transformer in foreign
countries. Doing so can cause malfunction.
After the red lamp lights, continue to recharge the battery for an
hour to attain a full charge.
Even a recharged, unused battery will gradually drain its power.
Recharge the battery on the day before or on the day you plan to use it.
By referring to the marking, you can attach the
protective cover to the battery to indicate whether
the battery has been recharged or not.
After recharging the battery, detach it and unplug
the power cord from the power outlet.
The time required to recharge the battery depends on the ambient
temperature and battery’s recharge level.
The battery pack can operate in temperatures from 0°C to 40°C (32°F to
104°F). However, for full operating performance, using it between 10°C
(50°F) and 30°C (86°F) is recommended. In cold locations such as ski
areas, battery performance temporarily decreases and the operating
time may be shorter.
If operating time is sharply reduced even after normal recharging, the battery
pack may have reached its service life. Replace it with a new battery.
Battery Charger CG-580/CB-5L is compatible with a 100 V AC to 240 V
AC 50/60 Hz power source. Therefore, it can be used in foreign countries
without a separate power transformer. You only need a plug adapter if
the country uses a different type of plug.

numbering] to [Manual reset]. (p.71)
If “Err CF” (Error CF) is displayed on the LCD panel, see page 126.
If you use a low-capacity CF card, it might not be able to record large
images.
Compared to CF cards, Microdrive cards are more vulnerable to
vibration and physical shock. If you use a Microdrive, be careful not to
subject the camera to vibration or physical shock especially while
recording or displaying images.
On the menu, if you set the [z Shoot w/o card] to [Off], it will prevent
shooting without a CF card. (p.43)

The number of possible shots and maximum burst (p.54) apply to a 512MB CF
card based on Canon’s testing standards.
The single image size, number of possible shots, and maximum burst during
continuous shooting are based on Canon’s testing standards (ISO 100, Picture
Style: [Standard]). The actual single image size, number of possible shots, and
maximum burst will vary depending on the subject, shooting mode, ISO speed,
Picture Style, etc.
In the case of monochrome images (p.57), the file size will be smaller so the
number of possible shots will be higher.
On the top LCD panel, you can check the remaining number of images the CF
card can record.
About the RAW
The RAW assumes that the image will undergo post-processing with a
personal computer. Special knowledge is required, but you can use the
bundled software to obtain the desired effect.
Image processing refers to adjusting the RAW image’s white balance,
contrast, etc., to create the desired image.
Note that direct printing and print ordering (DPOF) will not work with
RAW images.

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

you stop the continuous shooting, the maximum burst will increase.
After all the captured images are processed and written to the CF card, the
above table’s figures for the maximum burst will apply.
With white balance bracketing (p.68), the maximum burst will be lower.
The maximum burst is displayed even when the drive mode is set to
<u> (Single) or <j>. The maximum burst is displayed even when a
CF card is not in the camera. Therefore, before shooting, make sure that
a CF card is installed in the camera.

g Setting the ISO SpeedN
The ISO speed is a numeric indication of the sensitivity to light. A higher
ISO speed number indicates a higher sensitivity to light. Therefore, a
high ISO speed is suited for low light and moving subjects. However,
the image may look more coarse with noise, etc. On the other hand, a
low ISO speed is not suited for low light or action shots, but the image
will look cleaner.
The camera can be set between ISO 100 and 1600 in 1/3-stop
increments.
ISO Speed in the Basic Zone Modes
The ISO speed is set automatically within ISO 100-400.
ISO Speed in the Creative Zone Modes
ISO 100-1600 can be set in 1/3-stop increments. With C.Fn-08 [ISO
expansion] set to [1: On] (p.170), “H” (ISO 3200) can also be set.

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

About White Balance
The three RGB (red, green, and blue) primary colors exist in the light source in
varying proportions depending on the color temperature. When the color
temperature is high, there is more blue. And when the color temperature is low,
there is more red. To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of
the type of lighting. With a digital camera, the color temperature can be adjusted
with software so that the colors in the image look more natural. The subject’s
white color is used as the criteria for adjusting the other colors. The camera’s
<Q> setting uses the CMOS sensor for auto white balance.
64
3 Custom White BalanceN
With custom white balance, you shoot a white object that will serve as
the basis for the white balance setting. By selecting this image, you
import its white balance data for the white balance setting.

meter, take test shots and adjust the setting to compensate for the
difference between the color temperature meter’s reading and the
camera’s color temperature reading.

3 White Balance CorrectionN
You can correct the standard color temperature for the white balance
setting. This adjustment will have the same effect as using a color
temperature conversion or color compensating filter. Each color can be
corrected to one of nine levels. Users familiar with using color temperature
conversion or color compensating filters will find this feature handy.

3 White Balance Auto BracketingN
With just one shot, three images having a different color tone can be recorded
simultaneously. Based on the white balance mode’s standard color temperature, the
image will be bracketed with a blue/amber bias or magenta/green bias. This is called
white balance bracketing. It can be set up to ±3 levels in single-level increments.

3 File Numbering Methods
The file number is like the frame number on a roll of film. It can start
counting in one of three different ways: [Continuous], [Auto reset], and
[Manual reset]. The images you take are automatically assigned a file
number from 0001 to 9999 and saved in a folder that can hold up to
9999 images. The folders will be automatically numbered from 100 to
999.

Even after you replace the CF card, the file numbering will continue in
sequence from the last image taken. (The folder number is also
retained.) Since this prevents having identical file numbers, it is
effective for managing images in the same folder with a personal
computer.
Note that if the replacement CF card contains images recorded
previously, the camera will compare the number of the folder where it
saved the last image and the highest numbered folder in the
replacement card. It will save new images to the folder having the
higher number, and the file number will follow the highest file number in
that folder.

This is convenient when you want to organize images according to CF
cards. If the replacement CF card contains images recorded previously,
the file numbering will follow the highest file number (in the highest
numbered folder) in that CF card.

LCD panel and in the viewfinder. Replace the CF card with a new one.
If the folder contains file number 9999, a new folder will be created
automatically when the next image is captured. The image will then be

selecting a suitable AF point, you
can shoot with autofocus while
framing the subject as desired. You
can also set the AF mode to suit the
subject or obtain the desired effect.
Drive modes

Metering mode
Evaluative, partial, spot, and
center-weighted average metering
modes are provided. Single, highspeed continuous, low-speed
continuous, and self-timer drive
modes are provided. Select the
metering mode that suits the
subject or your photographic
intention.
The asterisk M on the right of the page title indicates that

73
f Selecting the AF ModeN
The AF mode is the autofocusing operation method. Three AF modes
are provided. One-Shot AF is suited for still subjects, while AI Servo AF
is for moving subjects. And AI Focus AF switches from One-Shot AF to
AI Servo AF automatically if the still subject starts moving. In the Basic

If focus cannot be achieved, the focus confirmation light <o> in the
viewfinder will blink. If this occurs, a picture cannot be taken even if the
shutter button is pressed completely. Recompose the picture and try to
focus again. Or see “When Autofocus Fails (Manual Focusing)” (p.80).
AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
While you press the shutter
button halfway, the camera
focuses continuously.
This AF mode is for moving subjects when
the focusing distance keeps changing.
X With predictive AF (p.76), the camera can
also focus track a subject which steadily
approaches or retreats from the camera.
X The exposure is set at the moment
the picture is taken.
In a Creative Zone mode (except <8>), the beeper will not sound even when focus
is achieved. Also, the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will not light.
75
f Selecting the AF ModeN
About Predictive AF
If the subject approaches or retreats from the camera at a constant rate,
the camera tracks the subject and predicts the focusing distance
immediately before the picture is taken. This is for obtaining correct
focus at the moment of exposure.
When the AF point selection is automatic, the camera first uses the
center AF point to focus. During autofocusing, if the subject moves
away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long as
the subject is covered by another AF point.
With a manually selected AF point, the selected AF point will focus
track the subject.
AI Focus AF for Automatic Switching of AF Mode
AI Focus AF switches the AF mode from
One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF
automatically if the still subject starts
moving.
After the subject is focused in the OneShot AF mode, if the subject starts
moving, the camera will detect the
movement and change the AF mode
automatically to AI Servo AF.
When focus is achieved in the AI Focus AF mode with the Servo mode
active, the beeper will sound softly. The focus confirmation light <o> in the
viewfinder will not light.

Lens’ Maximum Aperture and AF Sensitivity
The EOS 30D’s AF sensor has nine AF points. The center AF point is a
high-precision, cross-type sensor sensitive to both vertical and
horizontal lines of the subject. The top and bottom AF points are vertical
line-sensitive, and the remaining six AF points are horizontal linesensitive AF points.
With f/2.8 and faster lenses,* the vertical line-sensitive sensor at the
center AF point will also function to attain high-precision focusing.
* Except with the EF28-80mm f/2.8-4L USM and EF50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro lenses.

A AE LockN
AE lock enables you to lock the exposure at a different place from the
point of focus. By locking the exposure, you can recompose the shot
while maintaining the same exposure setting. This is called AE lock. It is

Flash Photography
The built-in flash or an EOSdedicated, EX-series Speedlite
enables E-TTL II autoflash
(evaluative flash metering with
preflash), making flash
photography as easy as normal
shooting. The result is naturallooking flash photos. In the Basic
Zone modes (except <3> <5>
<7>), flash photography is fully
automatic. In Creative Zone modes,
flash can be used whenever
necessary.
101
Using the Built-in Flash
E-TTL II autoflash obtains high-precision and consistent flash shots.
Using the Built-in Flash in the Basic Zone
If necessary, the built-in flash will pop-up automatically in low-light
or backlit conditions. (except in <3> <5> <7> modes)
Using the Built-in Flash in the Creative Zone
Regardless of the light level, you can press the <D> button to pop-up
and fire the built-in flash whenever desired.

obtain the proper exposure at the aperture you have set.
Against dark backgrounds such as the night scenes, slow-sync
shooting will be set so that both the subject and background are
exposed correctly. The main subject is exposed with the flash,
and the background is exposured with a slow shutter speed.
Because automatic slow-sync shooting uses a slow shutter
speed, always use a tripod.
If you do not want a slow shutter speed to be set, set C.Fn-03
[Flash sync. speed in Av mode] to [1: 1/250sec. (fixed)].

Use the built-in flash at least 1 m/3.3 ft away from the subject. Closer
distances will cause the lens barrel to partially obstruct the flash.
When using the built-in flash, detach any hood attached to the lens. A
lens hood will partially obstruct the flash.
A super telephoto lens or fast, large-aperture lens may partially obstruct
the built-in flash coverage. In such a case, using an EX-series Speedlite
(optional) is recommended.
The built-in flash’s coverage is effective with lens focal lengths as short
as 17mm. If the lens is shorter than 17mm, the periphery of the flash
photo will look dark.
To retract the flash, push it back down.
In the <s> <a> modes, even if you set the shutter speed to one faster
than 1/250 sec., it will be set automatically to 1/250 sec.
If autofocus cannot be achieved, the AF-assist beam (small flashes fired
by the built-in flash) will be fired automatically (except in the <3> <5>
<7> modes). (p.78)

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

106
Using EOS-Dedicated, External Speedlites
With EX-series Speedlites
An EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlite (optional) makes flash photography
as easy as normal shooting. You can easily do the flash operations below.
For detailed procedures, see the Speedlite’s instruction manual.
E-TTL II Autoflash
E-TTL II is a new autoflash exposure system incorporating improved flash
exposure control and lens focusing distance information, making it more precise
than the previous E-TTL (evaluative flash metering with preflash) system. The
camera can execute E-TTL II autoflash with any EX-series Speedlite.
• High-Speed Sync (FP flash)
With high-speed sync, you can set a sync speed faster than 1/250 sec.
• FE (Flash Exposure) Lock
Press the camera’s <A> button to lock the flash exposure at the desired part
of the subject.
• Flash Exposure Compensation
In the same way as normal exposure compensation, you can set exposure
compensation for flash. With a Speedlite, the flash exposure compensation can
be set up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
• FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)
The flash output is changed automatically for three successive shots (only with
FEB-compatible Speedlites). Set flash exposure bracketing up to ±3 stops in 1/
3-stop increments.
During FEB shooting, the <d> icon will blink in the viewfinder.
• E-TTL II Wireless Autoflash with Multiple Speedlites
As with wired, multiple Speedlites, wireless E-TTL II autoflash with multiple Speedlites
provides all the above features. Since connection cords are unnecessary, flexible and
sophisticated lighting setups are possible (only with wireless-compatible Speedlites).
About EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlites
The flash cannot be fired with an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlite
set in the TTL or A-TTL autoflash mode. Use the Speedlite’s manual
flash mode instead if provided.
107
Using EOS-Dedicated, External Speedlites
Before attaching an external Speedlite, retract the built-in flash if it is
popped up.
If the EX-series Speedlite’s firing mode is set to TTL autoflash with the
Custom Function, the Speedlite will not fire.
If autofocus cannot be achieved, the external, EOS-dedicated
Speedlite’s AF-assist beam (if the Speedlite has an AF-assist beam) will
be emitted automatically (except in the <5> <7> modes).
The camera is a Type-A camera that can use all the features of EXseries Speedlites.
Using Non-Canon Flash Units
Sync Speed
The camera can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash units at 1/
250 sec. or slower shutter speeds. With large studio flash, the sync
speed is 1/125 sec. or slower. Be sure to test the flash unit beforehand
to make sure it synchronizes properly with the camera.
PC Terminal
The camera’s PC terminal is provided for flash units having a sync
cord. The PC terminal is threaded to prevent inadvertent disconnection.
The camera’s PC terminal has no polarity so you can connect any
sync cord regardless of its polarity.
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.
Also, do not connect to the camera’s PC terminal any flash unit requiring
250 V or more.
Do not attach a high-voltage flash unit on the camera’s hot shoe. It might
not work.
A flash attached to the camera’s hot shoe and a flash unit connected to the
PC terminal can be used at the same time.

remain. This is convenient when you want to erase unnecessary images
all at once.
You can protect the image even after you change the display format to
shooting info display, magnified view, or index display after step 1.

3 Formatting the CF Card
Format the CF card before using it in the camera.
Formatting a CF card will erase everything in the card. Even
protected images will be erased, so make sure there is
nothing you need to keep. If necessary, transfer images to a
personal computer before formatting the card.

the CF card.
2 Format
Turn the <5> dial to select [OK],
then press <0>.
X The CF card will be formatted
(initialized).
X When the formatting is completed,
the menu will reappear.
If you use a CF card that has been formatted by a different camera or by
a personal computer, it might not work properly. If this happens, format
the card with the camera first. Then it might work with the camera.
The CF card’s capacity displayed on the formatting screen may be lower
than the capacity indicated on the card.
Handling “Err CF”
If “Err CF” (CF error) is displayed on the LCD panel, it indicates that a
problem with the CF card is preventing the image data from being recorded
or read. Use another CF card instead.
Or, if you have a commercially-available CF card reader that can read the
CF card, use it to transfer all the images in the card to a personal computer.
After transferring all the images to a personal computer, format the CF card.
It may then return to normal.

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

Transferring Images to
a Personal computer
You can transfer images in the CF card to a personal
computer. When the camera is connected to a personal
computer, you can transfer the images directly with the
camera. This feature is called direct image transfer.
If the computer software
(EOS DIGITAL Solution Disk
CD-ROM) provided with the
camera has been installed in
your personal computer, you
can easily transfer the
images without operating the
personal computer. This is
especially convenient for
people who are not good at
computers.
To install the provided software in the personal computer, see the
“Software Guide.”
If you want to operate the personal computer to transfer the
images from the camera, see the “Software Instruction Manual”

Program Line Description
The lower horizontal axis represents the shutter speed, and the righthand vertical axis represents the aperture. The combinations of shutter
speed and aperture automatically determined by Program AE are
shown as lines with respect to the subject brightness (Exposure Value)
gradations on the left and top edges of the graph.
Example:Using an EF-S17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM lens with a subject
brightness of EV8, the point where the diagonal line from EV8
(on the top edge) intersects the Program AE line represents
the corresponding shutter speed (1/15 second) and aperture
(f/4) that the program sets automatically.
The diagonal arrowed lines at the upper left indicate the
metering range for each ISO speeds.
