- 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.

• If you drop the equipment and the casing breaks open to expose the internal parts, do not touch the internal parts due to the possibility of electrical shock.

• Do not disassemble or modify the equipment. High-voltage internal parts can cause electrical shock.

• Do not look at the sun or an extremely bright light source through the camera or lens.

Doing so may damage your vision.

• Keep the camera from the reach of small children. The neck strap can accidentally choke the child.

• Do not store the equipment in dusty or humid places. This is to prevent fire and electrical shock.

• Before using the camera inside an airplane or hospital, check if it is allowed.

Electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the plane’s instruments or the hospital’s medical equipment.

• To prevent fire and electrical shock, follow the safeguards below:

- Always insert the power plug all the way in.

- Do not handle a power plug with wet hands.

- When unplugging a power plug, grasp and pull the plug instead of the cord.

- Do not scratch, cut, or excessively bend the cord or put a heavy object on the cord.

Also do not twist or tie the cords.

- Do not connect too many power plugs to the same power outlet.

- Do not use a cord whose insulation has been damaged.

• Occasionally unplug the power plug and use a dry cloth to clean off the dust around the power outlet. If the surrounding is dusty, humid, or oily, the dust on the power outlet may become moist and short-circuit the outlet to cause a fire.

Preventing Injury or Equipment Damage

• Do not leave equipment inside a car under the hot sun or near a heat source. The equipment may become hot and cause skin burns.

• Do not carry the camera around while it is attached to a tripod. Doing so may cause injury. Also make sure the tripod is sturdy enough to support the camera and lens.

• Do not leave a lens or lens-attached camera under the sun without the lens cap attached. Otherwise, the lens may concentrate the sun’s rays and cause a fire.

• Do not cover or wrap the battery-recharging apparatus with a cloth. Doing so may trap heat within and cause the casing to deform or catch fire.

• If you drop the camera in water or if water or metal fragments enter inside the camera, promptly remove the battery pack and back-up battery. This is to prevent fire and electrical shock.

• Do not use or leave the battery pack or back-up battery in a hot environment. Doing so may cause battery leakage or a shorter battery life. The battery pack or back-up battery can also become hot and cause skin burns.

• Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the equipment.

Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard.

If the product does not work properly or requires repair, contact your dealer or your nearest Canon Service Center.

Handling Precautions

The Camera

This camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or expose it to physical shock.

The camera is not waterproof and should not be used in wet conditions or underwater.

If the camera gets wet, take it to your nearest Canon dealer as soon as possible. If small amounts of water splash onto the camera, wipe it with a clean dry cloth. If the camera is exposed to salty air, wipe it thoroughly with a slightly damp cloth.

Never leave the camera close to devices that generate strong magnetic fields, such as magnets or electric motors. Do not operate or leave the camera in areas where strong electromagnetic signals are generated, such as near electronic transmission towers. Exposing the camera to strong electromagnetic signals can cause it to malfunction and destroy recorded image data.

Do not leave the camera in hot locations, such as in a car sitting in direct sunlight.

High temperatures can damage the camera.

The camera contains precision circuits. Never attempt to disassemble the camera or service it yourself.

Use a commercially available blower brush to remove any dust that accumulates on the camera lens, viewfinder, mirror, or focusing screen. Do not use cleaners that contain organic solvents to wipe off the camera body or lens. If the camera is very soiled, consult your nearest Canon dealer.

Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your hands. Doing so could corrode the contacts and interfere with the camera’s normal operation.

If the camera is suddenly brought in from the cold into a warm room, condensation may form on the camera and internal parts. To prevent condensation, first put the camera in a sealed plastic bag. Let the camera adjust to the warmer temperature before taking it out of the bag.

Do not use the camera if condensation forms on it, or you could damage it. If this occurs, remove the lens, CF card and battery from the camera, and wait until the condensation has evaporated before using the camera.

If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove its battery and store the camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. While the camera is in storage, operate its shutter periodically to make sure that it is working.

Avoid storing the camera in locations where potentially corrosive chemicals are used, such as in a laboratory.

If the camera has been in storage for an extended period, check its components before using it. If you have not used the camera for some time or are planning to take shots you will not want to lose (overseas vacation, etc.), have the camera checked by your Canon dealer beforehand, or check for yourself that the camera components are working properly.

LCD Panel and LCD Monitor

The LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision technology. However, there may be a few dead pixels where a black or red pixel is always displayed. They number no more than 0.01 percent of all effective pixels. They are not a malfunction and do not affect the images recorded.

8

Handling Precautions

Do not press hard on an LCD display or subject it to impacts, as this can cause display flaws and damage.

If an LCD display becomes soiled, clean it with a commercially available blower brush, or wipe it with a soft cloth, taking care not to scratch the screen. If an LCD display becomes extremely soiled, consult your nearest Canon dealer.

By their nature, LCD displays react more slowly at low temperatures, and may appear dark at high temperatures. The display will return to normal at room temperature.

Lithium Battery for the Date and Time

Store lithium batteries out of reach of small children. The chemicals in these batteries are very dangerous if the battery is accidentally swallowed. If this happens, seek medical attention at once.

Do not use metal instruments such as pliers to hold the battery, or you could cause a short circuit.

Do not disassemble or heat the battery, or you could rupture it.

CF Card

The CF card is a precision device. Do not drop CF cards or expose them to vibrations. Doing so could lose the images recorded on them.

Do not store or use CF cards near objects that generate magnetic fields, such as

TVs, speakers, or magnets, or in locations affected by static electricity. Doing so could lose the images recorded on the CF card.

Do not place CF cards in direct sunlight or close to heating appliances. Doing so can distort the cards and make them unusable.

Do not spill liquids onto CF cards.

Always store your CF cards in a case or cabinet to protect the data stored on them.

Non-Canon CF cards may not be able to record and playback images. If this happens, use a CF card made by Canon.

Do not bend CF cards, or subject them to strong impacts.

Do not store CF cards in hot, dusty, or humid locations, or in locations exposed to static electricity or magnetic fields.

Contacts

Lens Electrical Contacts

After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the lens caps or put down the lens with the rear end up to avoid scratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.

Recharging the Battery

Do not recharge any battery pack other than Battery Pack 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.

After the red lamp lights, continue to recharge the battery for an hour to attain a full charge.

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 power level.

The battery pack can operate in temperatures from 0°C to 40°C (32°F to

104°F), however for full operating performance, use between 10°C

(50°F) and 30°C (86°F) is recommended. In cold locations such as ski areas, battery performance is temporarily decreased and operating time may be reduced.

If operating time is sharply reduced even after charging normally, the battery pack may have exceeded its useful life. Replace it with a new battery pack.

Basic Operation

Power Switch

The camera operates only after the Power switch is set to <1>.

<1> : Set to this position when the camera is in use.

<2> : The camera does not operate.

Set to this position when not using the camera.

To save battery power, the camera turns off automatically after 1 minute of non-operation. To turn on the camera again, just press the shutter button. You can change the auto power-off time with the menu’s [Auto

power off] setting (∆).

Immediately after shooting, if you turn the Power switch to <2>, the access lamp may continue blinking for a few seconds while the CF card records the image.

After the image recorded to the CF card, the camera turns off automatically.

Shutter Button

The shutter button has two stages. You can press it down halfway or fully. The two levels of shutter button operation are as follows:

Halfway pressing

Pressing the shutter button down halfway activates autofocusing (AF), and also activates the automatic exposure (AE) mechanism and sets the shutter speed and aperture value.

The exposure (the combination of shutter speed and aperture value) appears on the

LCD panel and in the viewfinder (˜).

Full pressing

This releases the shutter and shoots.

26

Basic Operation

Camera movement during the moment of exposure is called camera shake. Camera shake can cause blurred pictures. To prevent blurred pictures due to camera shake:

· Hold the camera steady.

· Use your finger tip to touch the shutter button, grasp the camera with your entire right hand, then press the shutter button gently.

No matter what state the camera is in (image playback, menu operation, image recording, etc., except during direct printing), pressing the shutter button halfway will instantly make it ready for shooting.

For Basic Zone modes, only the image-recording quality

(except <h>), file numbering, auto rotation, and camera setting checking will apply in this chapter.

47

Image-Recording Quality

The widely-used JPEG format is used for image-recording quality settings other than <h>. Images captured in the <h> format must later be processed by a personal computer.

For example, when [Large a] is selected, the LCD panel will display

<da>.

Medium For A5 to A4-size prints. Records a medium-size image

(approx. 2.80 megapixels).

Small For A5-size (210 x 148 mm) or smaller prints. Records a small image size (approx. 1.60 megapixels).

RAW For A4-size (297 x 210 mm) and larger prints. Records a large image size (approx. 6.30 megapixels) without image quality degradation.

This format assumes that the image will be processed by a personal computer. Special knowledge is required, but you can use the bundled software to obtain the desired effect.

RAW images cannot be printed directly from the camera.

The <a> (Fine) and <s> (Normal) icons indicate the image’s compression rate. For better image quality, select <a> for low compression. To save space so you can record more images, select higher compression <s>.

Processing is the adjustment (such as the white balance and contrast) of the image from the RAW data.

The maximum capacity applies to a 128 MB CF card.

The image size and CF card’s maximum capacity are based on

Canon’s testing standards (at ISO 100 with [Parameter 1] set). The actual image file size and the CF card’s maximum capacity varies depending on the subject, shooting mode, ISO speed, and processing parameters.

On the LCD panel, you can check how many more images the CF card can record.

In the <h> mode, a <fa> JPEG image is also recorded simultaneously and embedded within the RAW image.

To extract the embedded JPEG image, use the dedicated software.

For details, see the software’s instructions.

A different image-recording quality can be set separately for the

Basic Zone modes and Creative Zone modes.

49

D Setting the ISO Speed

The ISO speed is a numeric indication of the sensitivity to light. A higher ISO speed number indicates a higher sensitivity to light.

Therefore, a high ISO speed is suited for moving subjects or shooting in low-light conditions. However, the image will contain more noise to make it look coarse or grainy. On the other hand, a low ISO speed will make the image look finer, but it is not suited for freezing motion or shooting in low light.

ISO Speed in the Basic Zone Modes

The ISO speed is set automatically within ISO 100-400.

White Balance

The three R (red), G (green), and B (blue) primary colors exist in varying proportions in a light source depending on its color temperature. When the color temperature is high, there is more blue. And when the color temperature is low, there is more red.

To the human eye, a white object still looks white regardless of the type of lighting. With a digital camera’s white balance setting, you can compensate for the color temperature so that the colors in the image look more natural.

The subject’s white color is corrected and used as the basis for adjusting the other colors. The camera’s <

Z

> feature uses the image sensor for auto white balance.

51

Custom White Balance

With custom white balance, you shoot a white object that will serve as the standard for the white balance. By selecting this image, you import its white balance data for the white balance setting.

Based on the current white balance mode’s standard color temperature, the white balance setting can be changed from 0 to +/–3 stops in whole-stop increments. This is called white balance bracketing. One stop is equivalent to 5 Mireds of a color conversion filter used by film cameras.

s

The bracketing sequence will start with the standard color temperature followed by a bluish tone (decreased compensation) and reddish tone

(increased compensation).

White balance bracketing will not work if the image-recording quality is

< h>.

During continuous shooting, the number of images recorded will be three times as many as the number of shots taken.

Since three images are recorded for one shot, the CF card will take longer to record the shot.

White balance bracketing can be used together with auto exposure bracketing (AEB). (p.76) In this case, the three AEB shots will have three white balance bracketed images recorded for each shot. Therefore, a total of nine images will be recorded on the CF card.

When Autofocus Fails (Manual Focusing)

Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the focus confirmation light <n> blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:

(a) Low-contrast subjects (blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.).

(b) Subjects in low light.

(c) Extremely backlit and reflective subjects (car with a reflective body, etc.).

(d) Overlapping near and far objects (animal in a cage, etc.).

In such cases, do one of the following:

1. Focus an object at the same distance as the subject and lock the focus before recomposing.

2. Set the lens focus mode switch to < MF > and focus manually.

During continuous shooting, the captured images are first stored in the camera's internal memory and then successively transferred to the CF card. When the internal memory becomes full during continuous shooting, “ ” will be displayed on the LCD panel and in the viewfinder and the camera cannot take any more shots.

As the captured images are transferred to the CF card, you will be able to capture more images. Press the shutter button halfway to check in the viewfinder the current remaining number of maximum burst ( to ) for continuous shooting. The maximum burst number will not be displayed when there is no CF card in the camera.

If you press the shutter button halfway before all the images in the internal memory are transferred to the CF card (while the access lamp blinks), the image transfer to the CF card will stop temporarily.

If “ ” is displayed in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel, wait until the access lamp turns off, then replace the CF card.

The number display “ ” - “ ” to the left of the focus confirmation light

Using the Built-in Flash

Using Red-eye Reduction

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

Press the <å> keys to select [On], then press < p >.

82

When you press the shutter button down halfway, the red-eye reduction lamp indicator appears in the viewfinder.

Red-eye reduction will not work unless the subject looks at the red-eye reduction lamp. Tell the subject to watch the lamp.

To increase the effectiveness of red-eye reduction, press the shutter button down fully after the red-

Red-eye reduction lamp indicator eye reduction lamp (which lights for approximately

1.5 seconds) indicator goes off.

You can shoot anytime by pressing the shutter button down fully, even if the red-eye reduction lamp is on.

Metering Modes

The camera has three metering modes: Evaluative, partial, and centerweighted average metering.

Evaluative metering

This is the camera’s standard metering mode suited for most subjects even under backlit conditions.

After detecting the main subject’s position, brightness, background, front and back lighting conditions, camera orientation (horizontal or vertical), etc., the camera sets the proper exposure.

Partial metering

This is set automatically during AE lock in the

Creative Zone modes.

This is particularly effective when the background is much brighter than the subject due to backlighting, etc. This method uses a center area of approximately 9% of the screen.

The area covered by partial metering is shown on the left.

Centerweighted average metering

This is set automatically in the <W> mode.

The metering is weighted at the center and then averaged for the entire scene.

0LCD Panel Illumination

To illuminate the LCD panel, press the

<0> button. To turn off the illumination, press the button again. The illumination will turn off when you press the shutter button halfway.

Histogram

A histogram is a graph indicating the image’s brightness. The horizontal axis indicates the brightness level (darker on the left and brighter on the right), while the vertical axis indicates how many pixels exist for each brightness level.

The more pixels there are toward the left, the darker the image. And the more pixels there are toward the right, the brighter the image.

If there are too many pixels on the left, the shadow portions will lose detail. And if there are too many pixels on the right, the highlights will be washed out. The tones in-between will be reproduced.

By checking the image and its histogram, you can see the exposure level pattern and the overall tone reproduction condition.

Sample Histogram
