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

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. If this happens, turn the <_>

set a slower shutter speed or increase the ISO speed.
If the exposure will be too bright, the minimum aperture (highest
number) will blink. If this happens, turn the < _ > dial to the right to
set a faster shutter speed or decrease the ISO speed.

shooti.gTip
®_When using an aperture with a high f/number, note that camera
shake can occur in low light scenes.
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.

BULB: Bulb Exposures
A bulb exposure keeps the shutter open
for as long as you hold down the shutter
button, it can be used to photograph
fireworks, etc.
in step 2 on the preceding page, turn the
<_ > 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 lens toward the sun. The
sun's heat can damage the camera's internal components.
Since bulb exposures produce more noise than usual, the image might
look a little grainy.
_ You can reduce the noise due to lon£ exposures by setting [4: Long exp.
noise reduction] to [1: Auto] or [2: On] in the [_ Custom Functions
(C.Fn)] (p,253).

For bulb exposures, using a tripod and Remote Switch [sold separately,

Setting the Color Reproduction Range _

The range of reproducible colors is called the color space. With this

About Adobe RGB
This color space 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).
The image will look very subdued in a sRGB personal computer
environment and with printers not compatible with Design rule for
Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21). Post-processing of the image with
software will therefore be required.
_
If the image is Captured With the c01or Space set to Adobe RGB, the file

Mirror Lock=up to Reduce Camera
Shake*
_
The camera's mechanical shake caused by the reflex mirror action can
blur images taken with a super telephoto lens or close-up (macro) lens.
in such cases, mirror Iockup is effective.
Mirror Iockup is enabled by setting [8: Mirror Iockup] to [1: Enable]

Tips
® Using the self=timer <_®> <_2> with mirror Iockup,
When you press the shutter button completely, the mirror locks up,
then the picture is taken 10 sec. or 2 sec. later.
® Remote control shooting.
Since you do not touch the camera when the picture is taken, remote
control shooting together with mirror Iockup can further prevent
camera shake (p.261). With Remote Controller RC-6 (sold
separately) set to a 2-sec. delay, press the transmit button and the
mirror will Iockup before the picture is taken 2 sec. later.

Shooting
Cautions
White <B> and Red <_J> internal Temperature Warning icons
if the camera's internal temperature increases due to prolonged Live
View shooting ora high ambient temperature, a white <B> icon will
appear. ]f you continue shooting while this icon is displayed, the image
quality of still photos may deteriorate. You should stop the Live View
shooting and allow the camera to cool down before shooting again
if the camera's internal temperature further increases while the white
<[]> icon is displayed, a red <R> icon will start blinking. This blinking
con is a warning that the Live View 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 le[ the
camera rest for a while.
Shooting with the Live View function a[ a high temperature for a
prolonged period will cause the <_> and <_J> icons to appear earlier.
When not shooting, turn off the camera.
Live View Image Cautions
Under low- or bright-light conditions, the Live View image might nol
reflect the brightness of the captured image.
if the light source within the image changes, the screen might flicker. If
this happens, slop the Live View shooting and resume shooting under
the actual light source to be used.
If you point the camera in a different direction, it might throw off the Live
View image's correct brightness momentarily. Wait until the brightness
evel stabilizes before shooting.
if there is a very bright light source in the picture, such as the sun. the
bright area might appear black on the LCD monitor. However. the actual
captured image will correctly show the bright area.
in low light, if you set the [_' LGD brightness]
to a bright setting,
chrommance noise may appear in the Live View image. However. the
chrominance noBe will not be recorded in the captured image.

Shooting
Shooting
Cautions
Result Cautions
When you shoot continuously with the Live View function for a long
period, the camera's internal temperature may increase and it can
degrade image quality. Terminate Live View shooting when not shooting
images.
Before taking a long exposure, stop Live View shooting temporarily and
wait several minutes before shooting. This is to prevent image
degradation.
Live View shooting in high temperatures and at high ISO speeas may
cause noise or irregular colors.
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (banding, dots of light, etc.?
may become noticeable.
If you take tile picture during magnified view, the exposure fright not
come out as desired. Return to ihe normal view before taking the p_cture.
During the magnified view, the shutter speed and aperture will be
displayed in orange. Even if you take the picture during magnified view.
the image will be captured in the normal view.
If [t_ =Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.109) is not set to [Disable], the
image may look bright even if a decreased exposure compensation or
decreased flash exposure compensation has been set.
If you use a TS-E lens to shift the lens vertically or use an Extension
Tube. the standard exposure might not be obtained or an irregular
exposure may result.
Custom Function Cautions
During Live View shooting, certain Custom Function settings will not take
effect tp.251/.
Lens and Flash Cautions
The focus preset feature on 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 workwkh an external Speedlite.

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 exposure
ends. When this is combined with a slow sync speed, you can create
a trail of light such as from car headlights at night. With 2rid-curtain
sync, a preflash is fired when you press the shutter button
completely. This is to determine the exposure. Then immediately
before the exposure ends, the real flash is fired. Therefore, two
flashes will be fired. However, with shutter speeds faster than 1/30

Wireless Flash
Photography
You can use the built-in flash
for wireless flash shooting.
The camera's built-in flash can work as a master unit
with Canon Speedlites having a wireless slave feature
and wirelessly trigger the Speedlite(s) to fire.
Canceling the slave unit's auto power off
To cancel the slave unit's auto power off, press the
camera's <-_> button. If you are using manual flash
firing, press the slave unit's test firing (PILOT) button to
cancel the auto power off.
