• Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers when shooting. In addition, do not touch the surface of the flash after taking several pictures in rapid succession. Either action could result in burns.

Preventing Malfunctions

Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields

Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors or other equipment generating strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.

Avoid Condensation Related Problems

Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may cause condensation

(water droplets) to form on its external and internal surfaces. You can avoid this by placing the equipment in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag.

If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera

Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation. Continued use may damage the equipment. Remove the CF card and battery or power cord (if connected) from the camera and wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.

Extended Storage

When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the battery (except the

CR2025 lithium button battery) and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera for extended periods with a battery installed will run down the battery and may damage the camera.

Important Safety Functions and Preventive Measures

• When the CF Card Access Lamp is blinking, do not remove the CF card from the camera.

Since the card is reading and writing data when the lamp is blinking, removal of the CF card at this time will damage the card.

• Do not use any cable other than that supplied with the camera. Use the supplied interface cable to connect the camera to a computer. Use of any other cable may lead to a malfunction.

Handling Precautions

The Camera

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

(2) 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.

(3) 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.

(4) Do not leave the camera in hot locations, such as in a car sitting in direct sunlight. High temperatures can damage the camera.

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

(6) 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.

(7) 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.

(8) If you take the camera quickly from a cold location into a warm one, condensation can form on the outside and inside of the camera. To prevent this, place the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag until it warms up to the ambient temperature.

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

(10) 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.

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

(12) 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

(1) LCD displays are manufactured using high-precision technology. Even so, very small black, red, or green dots can occasionally appear on a display. This is within the normal

99.98% range for valid picture elements (pixels), and does not indicate a fault. Such aberrations on the display also do not affect recorded images.

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

10

Handling Precautions

(3) 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.

(4) 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

(1) 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.

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

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

CF Card

(1) 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.

(2) 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.

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

(4) Do not spill liquids onto CF cards.

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

(6) Use only CF cards specified by Canon. Otherwise, you may be unable to record or play back images.

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

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

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.

Charge the battery pack.

As soon as you place the battery pack in the compact power adapter, the charge lamp starts blinking and charging begins.

When charging is complete, the lamp stops blinking and stays on.

It can take up to 90 minutes to fully charge a battery pack.

You can check whether a battery is charged by seeing whether the charge lamp blinks or stays on.

When charging is complete, the charge lamp stops blinking and stays on. You can continue charging the battery for approximately an hour to reach full charge capacity.

When charging is complete, remove the battery and unplug the power cord from the outlet.

Charging the Battery Pack

When the DC coupler is connected to the compact power adapter, the adapter cannot be used to charge battery packs.

Do not charge any battery packs other than model BP-511.

When the battery pack is in the camera, it discharges slightly all the time even when the camera is not used. This reduces the battery pack’s life due to over discharge. When not using the camera, remove the battery pack and store it with its protective cover attached. Always be sure to charge the battery pack before using it again.

If the battery is completely exhausted, it may take 20 or 30 minutes for the

CHARGE lamp to blink when you recharge the battery.

To protect battery packs and prevent loss of capacity, do not charge them continuously for more than 24 hours.

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.

The adapter can hold and charge two battery packs. Charging starts with the first battery pack attached. After that battery pack is charged, the charge lamp goes on and the adapter starts charging the second battery pack.

After charging of both battery packs is completed (both charge lamps are on), leave both battery packs in the charger for two more hours (one hour per battery pack) to reach a full charge.

Charging time depends on the ambient temperature, and the level to which the

● battery pack is already charged.

When battery power is low, the < > icon on the LCD panel blinks. Remove the battery pack from the camera and charge it.

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.

1

Set the Mode Dial to < >.

The AF mode is automatically set to <AI

FOCUS> (

56), the metering mode is set to < > and the drive mode to < >

(Single-frame).

AF point

2

Place one of the AF points on the subject.

The camera determines the subject position and uses the most appropriate AF point.

To focus on a subject that is not at any of the three AF points, see “Focusing On an

Off-Center Subject” (

58).

3

Set the focus.

Press the shutter button down halfway to set the focus.

The AF point achieving focus will flash in red and the beeper will sound. The focus confirmation light <

> at the lower right will also light.

4

Check the display.

The camera determines the shutter speed and aperture value automatically, and displays them in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel.

A number to displayed on the left of the focus confirmation light <

> indicates the maximum number of shots that can be taken in a single burst of continuous shooting.

If a number to is displayed, it indicates the number of remaining shots that can be stored in the almost-full CF card.

5

Take the picture.

Compose the shot and press the shutter button down fully.

The image is shown for approximately 2 seconds on the LCD monitor.

Fully Automatic Picture Taking

If the CF card becomes full, the CF Full message “ ” appears on the

LCD panel and in the viewfinder, and the camera will not take any more pictures. Replace the CF card with another CF card that has capacity available.

When the in-focus indicator <

> is blinking, the camera will not take pictures.

(

59, 137)

The focus and exposure are locked when AF focusing is complete.

The camera automatically focuses on the AF point that is on the subject closest to the camera.

The image quality can also be set. (

50, 118)

You can set the beep that indicates the subject is in focus or the beep that indicates the self-timer is operating to [On] or [Off]. (

33, 118)

If the number of remaining shots to in the CF card is displayed, changing the image quality will also change this remaining number of shots.

The LCD panel can be illuminated. (

67, 118)

Automatic Built-in Flash

In the Basic Zone (other than < > and < >), the flash pops up automatically and fires in low-light conditions or backlit daylight conditions. Press the flash back down when you are finished using it.

If anything blocks the flash so that it cannot pop up automatically, the error code

” (

135) appears on the LCD panel. When this occurs, set the Main

Switch to <OFF > and then set it to < ON> again.

To take pictures in an area where flash photography is prohibited or using indoor lighting, the < > (Program) (

68) mode setting is recommended.

When taking flash pictures of people at night or in dark interiors, we recommend using “Red-eye Reduction” (

89).

AF-Assist Beam

In dark locations, pressing the shutter button down halfway causes the AF-assist beam emitter to light. The AF-assist beam helps the

AF function.

2

The built-in AF-assist beam’s maximum range is 3.8 meters /12.5 ft.

When an EX-series external Canon Speedlite (optional) is used, the AF-assist beam will be emitted either by the camera or external Speedlite depending on the shooting conditions.

In the < > and < > modes, the AF-assist lamp will not light.

To erase all images recorded on the CF card, see “Erasing Images (All Image

Erase) ” (

104).

43

Portrait Mode

This mode blurs the background to make the subject stand out.

Set the Mode Dial to < >.

The way you take pictures is the same as in

< > (Full Auto) mode. (

38)

The AF mode is automatically set to <ONE

SHOT>, the drive mode to < >, and the metering mode to < >.

44

The image quality can also be set. (

50, 118)

Head-and-shoulder shots give the best background blur effect. Also, the farther the subject is from the background, the more blurred the background will appear.

Use a telephoto lens to blur the background even more. If you use a zoom lens, its longest focal length is the most effective (for example, a 24-85mm lens set to

85 mm).

Landscape Mode

This mode is for sweeping scenery, sunsets, etc.

Set the Mode Dial to < >.

The way you take pictures is the same as in

< > (Full Auto) mode. (

38)

The AF mode is automatically set to <ONE

SHOT>, the drive mode to < > (Single-frame), and the metering mode to < >.

2

If the shutter speed indicator blinks, the shutter speed may be too slow to keep the picture from being blurred by camera shake. We recommend you use a tripod when taking landscape pictures. (The shutter speed indicator still blinks if you use a tripod, but camera shake will not be a problem.)

The built-in flash does not fire in Landscape mode, even if it is raised.

The image quality can also be set. (

50, 118)

A wide-angle lens provides the greatest depth from foreground to background, as well as a wider image. If you use a zoom lens, its shortest focal length is the most effective (for example, a 24-85mm lens set to 24 mm).

45

Close-Up Mode

This mode is for taking close-up shots of flowers, insects, or other small subjects.

Set the Mode Dial to < >.

The way you take pictures is the same as in

< > (Full Auto) mode. (

38)

The AF mode is automatically set to <ONE

SHOT>, the drive mode to < > (Single-frame), and the metering mode to < >.

46

The image quality can also be set. (

50, 118)

Close-up mode is most effective when the subject is at the minimum focusing distance of the lens.

If you use a zoom lens, use its longest focal length to get a higher magnification.

For serious macro photography, using EOS-dedicated macro lenses and Macro

Ring Lite MR-14EX or Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX is recommended.

Sports Mode

This mode is used for sports photography and capturing fast-moving subjects.

Set the Mode Dial to < >.

The way you take pictures is the same as in

< > (Full Auto) mode. (

38)

The AF mode is automatically set to <AI

SERVO>, the drive mode to < >, and the metering mode to < >.

2

If the shutter speed indicator blinks, the shutter speed may be too slow to keep the picture from being blurred by camera shake. Be careful to hold the camera steady and press the shutter button smoothly, or use a tripod. (The shutter speed indicator still blinks if you use a tripod, but camera shake will not be a problem.)

The built-in flash does not fire in Sports mode, even if it is raised.

The image quality can also be set. (

50, 118)

For best results in Sports mode, use an ISO speed setting of ISO 400 or faster.

(

51, 118)

For sports photography we recommend using a telephoto lens of 200-300 mm.

47

Night Portrait Mode

This mode is for taking pictures of people at sunset or at night. It uses flash to illuminate the subject and a slow shutter speed to expose the background, resulting in a natural-looking exposure.

Set the Mode Dial to < >.

The way you take pictures is the same as in

< > (Full Auto) mode. (

38)

The AF mode is automatically set to <ONE

SHOT>, the drive mode to < > (Single-frame), and the metering mode to < >.

48

To prevent camera shake, always use a tripod.

If you are taking images of scenery only (and not people), use Landscape < > mode.

Tell your subjects not to move for a few seconds after the flash fires.

You can also use Night Portrait < > mode with an EX-series Speedlite.

In daylight, Night Portrait < > mode operates the same as < > (Full Auto) mode.

The image quality can also be set. (

50, 118)

For best results in Night Portrait mode, use an ISO speed setting of ISO 400 or faster. (

51, 118)

ISO Speed

ISO speed is an index number representing the photosensitivity of silver-halide film. Digital cameras do not use film, but their photosensitivity is commonly described in terms of “ISO equivalent” speed settings. (

130)

The higher the number, the greater the sensitivity. Higher speeds are better for taking pictures of moving subjects or in dim light, but the pictures will also contain more noise and so will be less sharp. Conversely, lower speeds are less suited to moving subjects or dim conditions, but produce sharper, more detailed images.

The Canon EOS D60 provides ISO-equivalent speed settings from ISO 100 to ISO 1000, in full-stop increments. The default setting is ISO 100.

1

Select [ISO speed].

Press the < MENU> button.

Turn the < > dial to select [ISO Speed], then press the < > button.

Set the ISO speed.

Turn the < > dial to select the desired

ISO speed, then press the < > button.

The selected ISO speed is entered, and the screen returns to the Menu.

Press the < MENU> button to clear the screen and exit the Menu.

The higher the ISO speed, the more noise the image will contain and the larger the image file size will be. Therefore, setting a higher ISO speed will reduce the number of images that the CF card can store. On the LCD panel, you can check the number of images the CF card can hold. (

16)

Taking pictures under a high temperature, at a high ISO speed, or with a long exposure may cause irregular colors in the image.

You can set the ISO speed by pressing the < > button and turning the < > or

< > dial as you look at the LCD panel. (C.Fn-12-2

Focus confirmation light

Press the shutter button down halfway to activate AF operation and focus once.

The AF point achieving focus will flash in red and the beeper will sound. The focus confirmation light <

> at the lower right will also light.

When using evaluative metering, the exposure setting is determined when focus is achieved. The exposure setting and focus remain locked as long as the shutter button is pressed down halfway. You can then recompose the shot while retaining the exposure setting and focus (

58).

If the camera cannot focus, the focus confirmation light (

) in the viewfinder blinks. If this happens, you will not be able to take a picture even if you press the shutter button down fully. Instead, reframe the shot and focus again. See also,

“Manual Focus” (

AF Mode Selection

AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects

Press and hold the shutter button down halfway, and the camera focuses continuously.

This mode is suited for moving subjects when the focusing distance keeps changing.

With its predictive AF function, the camera can also track a subject that is steadily approaching or retreating from the camera.

The exposure settings are determined immediately before the picture is taken.

The focus confirmation light <

> will not light and the beeper will not sound when focus is achieved.

When focus is not achieved, the focus confirmation light <

> will blink.

Focus lock (

58) cannot be used.

You can set the camera so that during AI Servo AF operation, you can press the

< > button and the focus will momentarily lock as long as the button is held down. (C.Fn-2-2

122)

Predictive AF

When a subject is approaching or retreating from the camera at a constant rate, the focusing function can track the subject and predict the focusing distance immediately before the picture is taken so that the shot will be in focus at the moment of exposure.

When the AF point is selected automatically, the camera uses one of three AF points to focus on the subject. Tracking and predictive focusing is carried out using the camera selected AF point.

When the AF point is selected manually (

57), the selected AF point tracks the subject.

AI Focus AF

AI Focus AF is set automatically in < > (Full Auto) mode. At the time of the shot, the camera automatically selects One-shot AF or AI Servo AF according to the state of the subject.

If the subject is focused in One-shot AF and the subject then begins to move continuously, the camera detects the movement, automatically switches to AI Servo AF, and focuses continuously as it tracks the subject.

56

AF Point Selection

The AF point can be selected automatically or manually. In the Basic Zone modes and < > mode, AF point selection will be automatic. In the < >, < >, < >, and < > modes, AF point selection can be set to either automatic or manual.

Automatic selection : The camera selects the AF point automatically according to conditions.

Manual selection : You can select any of the three AF points manually. This is best when you want to be sure to focus on a particular subject, or to use the speed of the AF focusing function to help you compose a particular shot quickly.

58

You can also use the Focus lock function in the Basic Zone (except for

< >mode), starting from step 2.

For best results, use the combination of One-shot AF with AE lock applied on the

AF point where focus is achieved, and evaluative metering.

Problem Subjects for Autofocusing

The EOS D60 has a precision AF system that can focus on most subjects. However, it may not be able to focus on subjects (focus confirmation light <

> blinks) in particular conditions such as the following:

Difficult-to-Focus Subjects

Very low-contrast subjects, such as a blue sky or single-color wall

Subjects in very dark locations

Extremely backlit or reflective subjects, such as a shiny new car

Overlapping nearby and distant objects, such as cage bars and the animal inside the cage

In such cases, use one of the following procedures:

(1) Focus on an object that is at the same distance as the desired subject, apply Focus Lock, then recompose the picture.

(2) Set the lens focus mode switch to < MF > (or < M >), and focus manually.

Manual Focus

1

Set the lens focus mode switch to

< MF > (or < M > on older lenses).

The < > icon appears on the LCD panel.

61

Metering Modes

: Evaluative Metering

This is an all-around metering mode suited even for backlit subjects. The viewfinder field is divided into

35 metering zones to which the three AF points are linked for evaluative metering. The camera determines the main subject’s size, position, brightness, background, front and back lighting, etc., so that it can select the proper exposure for the subject at all times.

When using manual focusing, evaluative metering is based on the center AF point.

: Partial Metering

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 9.5% of the screen.

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

: Center-weighted Average Metering

This method meters the average exposure of the entire viewfinder screen, and gives extra weight to the center.

62

Note that this number will be displayed even when there is no CF card in the camera, so make sure a CF card is in the camera.

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

When “ ” is displayed in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel, replace the CF card after the access lamp stops blinking.

Setting the White Balance

The EOS D60 has seven white balance settings, Auto, Daylight, Cloudy, Tungsten, Fluorescent, Flash, and Custom. In the Basic Zone the Auto setting is selected automatically, while in the Creative zone you can select any of the seven white balance settings.

White Balance Settings

In light from any source, the proportion of the primary colors (red, green, blue) in the light varies according to the color temperature. Higher color temperatures contain a greater proportion of blue, and lower color temperatures contain a greater proportion of red. Moving from low to high, the progression is red

orange

yellow

white

blue-white. For example, a given subject will appear reddish if taken under tungsten (incandescent) lighting, or greenish if taken under fluorescent lighting.

The human eye automatically adapts to changes in light so that white subjects appear white even under different lighting conditions. Cameras that use film have to adjust for these differences by using color-correcting filters or switching to different film types. Digital cameras rely on software to correct the color temperature by determining white as the basis for the colors in the subject, then correcting the other colors to achieve a natural color range.

< > mode automatically selects the white balance according to the light source where you are shooting. If this does not produce pictures with satisfactory coloring, you can select a mode other than < >.

If the smallest aperture value (the maximum open aperture) for the lens you are using blinks, the scene is too dark.

Turn the < > dial to a slower shutter speed until the aperture value stops blinking.

If the largest aperture value (the minimum aperture) for the lens you are using blinks, the scene is too bright. Turn the < > dial to a faster shutter speed until the aperture value stops blinking.

Shutter Speed Display

You can set the shutter speed in half-stop increments as shown below. The shutter speeds from 4000 to 4 indicate the denominator of the fractional shutter speed, so that—for example—125 is 1/125 second. For slow speeds, 0”7 is 0.7 seconds, and 15” is 15 seconds.

Automatic Depth-of-Field AE

When taking pictures of large groups or landscapes, the EOS D60 can automatically achieve a sharp focus over a wide depth of field. All the subjects covered by the AF points, from those close to the camera to those far away from the camera, can be taken clearly.

In < > mode, the shutter speed and aperture value cannot be changed freely. If the camera selects a slow shutter speed, the use of a tripod is recommended.

Automatic depth-of-field AE cannot be used if the lens’ focus mode switch is set to <MF >

(or < M > on older lenses). Set the switch to < AF >.

stands for Auto-Depth of field.

)

The focus will be sharp between the subjects where the AF points flashes in red.

You can check the depth of field beforehand while the exposure is displayed. (

73)

In the example shown on the left, sharp focus will be attained between the left-most person and right-most person.

3

Check the display, then take the picture.

If the aperture value is not blinking, the exposure is correct.

Press the shutter button down fully.

76

If the aperture value is blinking, the exposure level is correct but the desired depth of field cannot be achieved. Either use a wide-angle lens or move farther from the subject.

Regardless of the AF mode setting, ONE-SHOT AF will take effect.

If you use a flash, the result will be the same as using < > (Program AE) mode with flash.

Setting Exposure Compensation

Exposure compensation is used to alter the camera’s standard exposure setting to make the picture brighter (increased exposure) or darker (decreased exposure). Exposure compensation can be set up to +/–2 stops, in 1/2-stop increments.

1

Set the Quick Control Dial switch to < ON >.

While looking at the LCD panel or viewfinder, turn the < > dial.

Turn the < > dial while pressing the shutter button down halfway, or within (

4

) seconds of pressing the shutter button down halfway.

Positions on the [ +] side indicate increased exposure, and positions on the [ – ] side indicate decreased exposure.

Decreased Increased exposure exposure

Once set, the exposure compensation remains in memory after the Main Switch is set to < OFF >.

To cancel exposure compensation, return the compensation setting to the standard exposure position < >.

4

Take the picture.

To prevent the < > dial from turning inadvertently and changing the exposure compensation, enter the setting and then set the Quick Control Dial switch to

< OFF >.

In < > (Manual) mode, because you determine the exposure (the combination of shutter speed and aperture) yourself, the exposure compensation function does not operate.

You can set the camera so that you can set the exposure compensation amount in

1/3-stop increments. (C.Fn-4-1

122)

Autoexposure Bracketing

When using autoexposure bracketing, the camera automatically changes the exposure level within the set range (up to +/– 2 stops in 1/2-stop increments) for three successive frames. This is called

AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing). The three bracketed shots are exposed in the selected drive mode

(

The bracketing sequence will be standard exposure, decreased exposure, and increased exposure.

The pictures will be taken in the drive mode currently set. (

63)

When using continuous shooting, press and hold the shutter button down fully to take all three bracketed shots continuously, and then stop automatically.

When using AEB with the self-timer, the camera takes the three bracketed shots in succession after the 10-second timer delay.

Canceling AEB

Follow steps 1 and 2 to set the AEB level to

< >.

AEB will be automatically cancelled when the Main Switch is set to <OFF >, the lens is changed, the flash is charged, the battery pack or the CF card is replaced.

Autoexposure Bracketing

Neither flash nor bulb exposures can be used in AEB mode.

If you set mirror lockup with C.Fn-3-1 and then use AEB, single-frame shooting takes effect even if the drive mode is set to continuous shooting.

To indicate that AEB is in progress, the < > AEB icon on the LCD panel and the < > indicator in the viewfinder blink until all three bracketed shots have been taken.

If the drive mode is set to single-frame shooting, you must press the shutter button three times to complete the bracketing sequence.

During continuous shooting, no viewfinder information is displayed.

In manual exposure mode, AEB is applied by changing the shutter speed.

You can use AEB in combination with exposure compensation. In this case, if exposure compensation causes the exposure to fall outside the indicated exposure level, the viewfinder display looks as follows. In all cases, the exposures are taken according to both the AEB and exposure compensation settings.

In < >, < >, < > and < > modes

: AEB set to +/– 1 stop.

: With exposure compensation of –1 stop

: With exposure compensation of –1.5 stops

: With exposure compensation of –2 stops

In < > mode

: Center exposure –2 stops from standard exposure

: Center exposure more than –2 stops from satandard exposure

3

You can change the AEB settings in 1/3-stop increments. (C.Fn-4

122)

In this case, the AEB indicator on the LCD panel looks like this.

AEB settings in 1/3-stop increments

: –1/3 : +1/3

AEB settings in 2/3-stop increments

: –2/3 : +2/3

You can change the sequence to decreased exposure, standard exposure, or increased exposure. (C.Fn-7

124)

79

AE Lock

AE lock enables you to lock the exposure at a place other than the point of focus. After locking the exposure, you can recompose the shot while maintaining the exposure level. This feature is useful for backlit and spotlighted subjects.

The effects of the AE lock depend on the AF point and metering method selected. (

133)

1

Focus on the point on which you want to lock the exposure reading.

The exposure value is displayed in the viewfinder.

2

Press the < > button.

The < > icon lights in the viewfinder to indicate that the exposure setting is locked.

Press the shutter button down fully.

The beeper sounds as the red-eye reduction lamp operates, and the picture is taken after 10 seconds.

First 8 seconds:

Slow beeps and the lamp blinks slowly.

Last 2 seconds:

Faster beeps and the lamp stays on.

While the self-timer is operating, the LCD panel shows count down.

To cancel the self-timer, press the < DRIVE> button.

3

Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to start the self-timer. Doing so prevents the camera from focusing on the subject.

You can set the beep that indicates the subject is in focus and the beep that indicates the self-timer is operating to [ On ] or [ Off ]. (

118)

When using the self-timer to shoot only yourself, lock the focus (

58) on an object at about the same distance as where you will be.

You can use the Remote Switch RS-80N3 (optional) or Timer Remote Controller

TC-80N3 (optional) to take a picture when you are away from the camera.

81

82

Self-timer Operation

Using the Eyepiece Cover

If you take a picture using the self-timer or remote switch (optional) without looking through the viewfinder, stray light can enter the eyepiece and affect the exposure. To prevent this, attach the eyepiece cover to the viewfinder eyepiece before taking the picture.

1

Remove the eyecup.

Grasp both sides of the eyecup and lift it up and away from the camera.

2

Slip the eyepiece cover over the eyepiece.

The eyepiece cover is attached to the strap.

Bulb Exposures

In a bulb exposure, the shutter remains open as long as you hold the shutter button down, and closes when you release it. Bulb exposures are useful for the long exposures required for night scenes, fireworks, etc.

Turn the < > dial.

4

Take the picture.

Press and hold the shutter button down fully.

During the bulb exposure, the elapsed exposure time is displayed on the LCD panel (1 to 999 seconds).

Exposure continues as long as you hold down the shutter button.

3

The elapsed exposure time displayed on the LCD panel is only counted up to 999 seconds. For accurate exposure time, check the information display for the exposed image. (

100)

The Remote Switch RS-80N3 (optional), or Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3

(optional) can be used to eliminate the need to hold down the shutter button.

83

Mirror Lockup

Mirror lock is enabled with C.Fn-3-1 (

122). This function raises the mirror and exposes the picture, in separate operations. It is useful for close-up shots or when using a super telephoto lens, where the mirror shock could affect the picture.

When using mirror lockup, we recommend you use the Remote Switch RS-80N3 (optional).

1

Press the shutter button down fully.

The mirror is raised.

The mirror automatically returns to the down position approximately 30 seconds after it is raised. Be sure to take the picture within 30 seconds.

2

Press the shutter button down fully again.

The picture is taken, and the mirror goes back down.

To take the picture again, repeat the procedure from step 1.

84

During mirror lockup, do not point the camera at the sun. The sun’s heat can scorch and damage the shutter curtains.

If you use mirror lockup with the self-timer for a bulb exposure, there will be a shutter release sound when you release the shutter button during self-timer operation. This is not the sound of the shutter release.

During mirror lockup, the drive mode (

63) is single-frame shooting regardless of the current setting.

If you use mirror lockup with the self-timer, pressing the shutter button down fully the first time raises and locks the mirror, then releases the shutter 2 seconds later.

Flash

Photography

4

The EOS D60 can take easy, natural-looking flash pictures with correct subject illumination using E-TTL autoflash (preflash evaluative metering in memory) and either the camera’s built-in flash or any

EOS-dedicated EX-series Speedlite. The procedure is as easy as a normal AE shot.

This chapter describes how to take flash pictures with the built-in flash, with the EOS-dedicated 550EX Speedlite, or other types of external flash.

4

85

Using the Built-in Flash

The built-in flash lets you take the following kinds of flash pictures with the ease of a normal

AE shot.

E-TTL autoflash

E-TTL autoflash (preflash evaluative metering in memory) supplies the correct level of flash for the subject in the AF point selected by AF.

FE (Flash Exposure) lock

(

90)

FE (flash exposure) lock sets the correct flash exposure for a selected part of the subject. The

FE lock functions as an AE lock with flash.

Flash exposure compensation

(

91)

This function corrects the flash level in much the same way as the Exposure compensation function. The level of compensation can be up to +/–2 stops in 1/2-stop increments.

Using the Built-in Flash in the Basic Zone

In the Basic Zone (except in < > and < > modes), the built-in flash pops up and fires automatically in low-light or backlit conditions.

Using the Built-in Flash in the Creative Zone

In the Creative zone, you can take flash pictures by simply pressing the < > button to pop up the built-in flash at any time, regardless of lighting conditions.

: Select < > mode for full autoflash.

The shutter speed and aperture value are determined automatically, just as in < >

(Full Auto) mode.

: Select < > mode to manually set a shutter speed slower than 1/200 second.

The camera then automatically sets the flash aperture value to provide the proper exposure for your shutter speed.

: Select < > mode to manually set the aperture value.

In low-light conditions against a background such as a night sky, you can use automatic slow-sync settings to properly expose the main subject and the background. The main subject is captured by the flash, and the background is captured by time exposure using a slow shutter speed.

Because automatic slow-sync photography uses a slow shutter speed, always use a tripod.

: Select < > mode to set the shutter speed and the aperture value manually.

The main subject is exposed properly by the flash. The background exposure varies according to the shutter speed and aperture settings.

: The effect is the same as using flash in < > mode.

Using the Built-in Flash

When using an EX-series Speedlite (

92), press the built-in flash back into the camera before mounting the external flash.

When using the built-in flash, keep at least 1 m/3.3 ft away from the subject.

Otherwise the lens barrel may partially obstruct the flash and cause part of the photo to look dark.

When using the built-in flash, detach any hood from the lens to keep it from obstructing flash coverage.

Using the built-in flash with any of the following lenses can partially obstruct the flash coverage. Instead, use an EOS-dedicated external flash.

Large-aperture lenses, including the EF16-35mm f/2.8L USM, EF28-70mm f/2.8L USM.

Super-telephoto lenses, including the EF300mm f/2.8L IS USM and EF600mm f/4L IS USM.

The built-in flash can cover the picture area for lenses with focal lengths as short as 18 mm. If you use a lens shorter than 18 mm, the photo will be dark around the edges.

The ‘E’ in E-TTL stands for ‘Evaluative.’

To retract the built-in flash, press it back down into the camera.

You cannot use the built-in flash to set high-speed sync (FP flash).

In < > or < > mode, if you set the shutter speed faster than 1/200 second, the camera will automatically reset it to 1/200 unless the EX-series Speedlite has been set for high-speed sync.

AF flash exposure is always based on the aperture value at the time the shot is taken, and controlled by E-TTL automatic flash compensation linked to the active AF point and weighted for the main subject.

The built-in flash and external flash cannot be used at the same time.

If the camera finds it difficult to focus, the AF-assist lamp (

39) will light automatically (except in the < > and < > modes).

You can disable the AF-assist beam and built-in flash. (C.Fn-5

122)

You can set the Shutter curtain sync to 2nd-curtain sync. (C.Fn-8-1

124)

In the aperture-priority AE mode with flash, you can set the sync speed to 1/200 sec fixed. (C.Fn-6-1

Using the Built-in Flash

Red-eye Reduction

When you use flash in low-light conditions, it can reflect off your subject’s pupils and make their eyes look red in the recorded imge. This effect is called “red-eye,” and is caused by the light of the flash reflecting off the retina of the eye. The Red-eye reduction function uses the camera’s red-eye reduction lamp, which gently shines into the subject’s eyes to constrict the pupils and thereby reduces the likelihood that red-eye will occur. You can use red-eye reduction in any picture-taking mode except < > and < > modes.

1

From the menu, select [Red-eye on/off].

Press the < MENU> button.

Turn the < > dial to select [Red-eye on/ off], then press the < > button.

2

Set the Red-eye reduction function.

Turn the < > dial to select [On], then press the < > button.

The red-eye reduction function is turned

On, and the display returns to the Menu.

Press the < MENU> button to clear the screen and exit the menu.

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

Red-eye reduction is effective only when the subject is looking at the red-eye reduction lamp. Be sure to tell your subjects to look at the lamp.

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

(which lights for approximately 1.5 seconds) indicator goes off.

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

Red-eye reduction also operates when you use an EOSdedicated Speedlite.

The effectiveness of red-eye reduction varies from subject to subject.

Red-eye reduction lamp indicator

Red-eye reduction is more effective in bright interior locations, with the camera closer to the subject.

Flash Photography with the EOS-Dedicated 550EX Speedlite

The Canon 550EX Speedlite allows you to take high-quality flash pictures easily, in the same way as you would with a built-in flash.

E-TTL Autoflash

E-TTL autoflash (preflash evaluative metering in memory) supplies the correct level of flash for the subject in the AF point selected by AF. In dark locations, you can set the camera to aperture-priority AE for automatic slow-sync operation, for a natural-looking exposure balanced between the subject and background.

High-Speed Sync (FP Flash)

(

94)

High-speed sync (FP or focal-plane flash) enables flash synchronization at all shutter speeds from 30 sec. to 1/4000 sec.

FE (Flash Exposure) Lock

(

95)

FE lock obtains and locks the correct flash exposure for any part of the subject. This is the flash equivalent of AE lock.

Flash Exposure Compensation

(

95)

As with normal exposure compensation, you can use flash exposure compensation to adjust the flash output within a range of +/–2 stops, in 1/2-stop increments.

FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)

(

94)

The FEB function is like AEB (autoexposure bracketing) with flash. You can bracket flash exposures by up to +/–3 stops, in 1/2-stop increments.

Modeling Flash

(

95)

Modeling flash allows you to check shadows and the light balance produced by multi-light settings.

Wireless Multi-Flash/E-TTL Autoflash

(

95)

You can implement wireless multi-light E-TTL autoflash, using any or all of the features listed above. This provides the freedom to set up sophisticated lighting effects with no connection cords required.

92

Autoflash functions are not available with EZ, E, EG, ML, or TL-series Speedlites.

In difficult focusing conditions, the AF-assist beam is emitted from the 550EX

Speedlite, and automatically linked to the active AF point.

Besides the 550EX, other EX-series Speedlites can be used with the camera.

Regarding the available features, refer to the Speedlite's instructions.

High-Speed Sync (FP Flash)

When the 550EX Speedlite is set to high-speed sync < > mode, it can automatically synchronize at any shutter speed of 1/200 second or faster, thus providing high-speed sync

(FP) flash operation. When high-speed sync is On, the < > icon appears in the viewfinder.

High-speed sync is effective for portrait photography in the following situations:

(1) When you want to use daylight sync flash for a portrait, and widen the aperture (reduce the aperture value) to blur the background.

(2) When you want to produce a catchlight in the subject’s eyes.

(3) When you want to use fill flash to eliminate shadows.

Normal flash FP flash

FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)

By setting FEB (flash exposure bracketing) < > with the 550EX, you can bracket the flash exposure up to +/-3 stops in 1/2-stop increments. The flash output is changed automatically for each bracketed shot so that the background exposure level remains the same.

Standard exposure (0) Decreased exposure (–1.0) Increased exposure (+1.0)

This is a Type-A camera. For details, refer to the instractions for your master Speedlite.

Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX and Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX can also be used as the master unit, and Speedlite 420EX can also be used as a slave unit.

95

Using Non-Canon Flash Units

Sync Speed

The EOS D60 can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash units at shutter speeds of 1/

200 second or slower. With larger studio flash units, the flash speed is 1/60 second or slower.

Be sure to test the flash you are using beforehand, to make sure it synchronizes properly with the camera.

PC Terminal

We recommend you use a flash with sync cable connected to the PC contacts. The PC terminal has a locking thread to prevent accidental disconnection. Only the X-sync terminal is used for synchronization at 1/200 second or slower.

If you use the EOS D60 with a flash unit or flash accessory built for another brand of camera, the EOS D60 may not operate properly.

Some large studio flash units have a sync cord polarity that is the opposite of the EOS

D60’s PC terminal. Such flash units will not

+ (plus) work with the EOS D60 unless you change the polarity of the sync cord. Consult the manufacturer of the flash unit, or purchase a commercially-available polarity conversion cord. The camera’s PC terminal polarity is shown in the figure on the right.

Do not use a high voltage flash on the hot shoe. It might not fire.

– (minus)

You can use a flash unit attached to the camera's hot shoe and another flash unit connected to the PC terminal at the same time.

We recommend Canon EX-series Speedlites for use with this camera.

TTL and A-TTL Speedlites

With an EZ-, E-, EG-, ML-, or TL-series Speedlite set in the TTL or A-TTL autoflash mode, the flash will not fire. The manual flash mode must be used (with Speedlites having a manual flash mode).

When the 550EX is set to C.Fn-3-1, the flash will not fire in the TTL autoflash mode.

Print Order

You can mark the images on a CF card for printing, as well as specify the number of prints, print type, and the image data (date and file no.). The print specifications for the Canon EOS

D60 camera conform to the Print Order Format (DPOF) standard.

DPOF

DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) is a standard used to record (on the CF card or other recording media) the image number, number of prints, etc. of images taken by digital cameras.

By fitting a CF card into a PC card adapter (optional) and inserting it into a PC card slotequipped printer compatible with DPOF, you can make prints as specified.

You will not need to fill out the desired numbers and quantities of prints when ordering prints from a photo printing lab.

Precautions for Printing from DPOF-compatible Devices

Please note the following when printing from a DPOF-compatible device.

The EOS D60 cannot change print order information set by another DPOF-compatible device. Any such changes should be made by the device on which the print order was entered.

If the CF card contains image data with print order information from another device, entering new print order information from the EOS D60 may erase the previous print order information.

Some DPOF-compatible devices or photo printing services may not use all the recorded print order information. Check the instractions for the device you are using, or with the photo printing service.

The print specifications while [ ] is appearing on the LCD panel will cancel all the former specifications.

The Canon Card Photo Printer CP-10 cannot be connected to the EOS D60 to make direct prints.

File Numbering System

The pictures you take are automatically assigned file numbers from 0001 to 9900 and stored in folders of 100 images each. Each folder on the CF card is numbered from 100 to 998.

Automatic file numbering can be either by continuous numbering or auto reset numbering (the default setting is continuous numbering):

3 images are recorded on the CF card

(1) Continuous:

Numbering is continuous between cards, so that the first file number assigned on a new CF card is one more than the last file number assigned on the previous CF card.

(2) Auto reset:

Each time you insert a new CF card, the file number resets to its default value (Img_0001). If the card already contains files, the next available number is assigned.

File numbers are used the same way as frame numbers in a film camera.

For details about file numbers, see “Basic Terminology” (

129).

During continuous shooting, more than 101 images might be stored in a folder.

Because continuous numbering avoids duplication of image file numbers, this setting is convenient for processing images on computers.

Cleaning the CMOS Imaging Element

The imaging element corresponds to the film in a film camera. If dirt or foreign matter gets on this imaging element, black spots may be recorded on the corresponding part of the image. If this happens, use the procedure below to clean the imaging element.

Because the imaging element is very sensitive, we strongly recommend that you have the cleaning done by Canon service representatives.

When cleaning the imaging element, always connect the EOS D60 camera to a household power outlet using the DC coupler. If you try to clean the imaging element while the battery pack is installed in the camera, the cleaning warning message “ ” will blink on the LCD panel and you will not be able to clean the imaging element.

Before you start cleaning, remove the lens. (

Set the Main Switch to <OFF >.

The camera power turns off, the shutter closes and the mirror is lowered.

Set the Main Switch to <ON > again, and the camera will be ready to shoot pictures normally.

116

Never disconnect the camera power during cleaning. If the power is cut off, the shutter will close and possibly damage the shutter curtain.

Use a blower without a brush attached. Using a brush to remove dust from the image element can damage the element.

Do not insert a dust blower into the camera beyond the lens mount. If the power shuts off and the shutter closes, this may damage the shutter curtains.

Never use cleaning sprays or blower sprays. The pressure and freezing action of the spray gas may damage the surface of the imaging element.

Basic Terminology

AE

Auto Exposure is a function that calculates the exposure automatically. The camera has a built-in exposure meter that automatically determines the correct exposure (the combination of shutter speed and aperture value).

AF

Auto Focus is a function that focuses the camera automatically.

Aperture value

The lens aperture opens and closes to control the amount of light that reaches the imaging element. The aperture value (or f/number) is equal to the focal length divided by the aperture diameter. The aperture value is displayed on the camera’s LCD panel and in the viewfinder, and ranges from 1.0 to 91, depending on the particular lens mounted on the camera.

CF (CompactFlash) Card

CompactFlash card is the storage media used to record captured images taken by the EOS

D60.

Depth of Field

When a subject is in focus, a distance in front of and behind the subject is also in focus. This is called the depth of field. The greater the aperture value (that is, the smaller the aperture), the broader the depth of the field. This is called a deeper depth of field. Conversely, the smaller the aperture value (larger aperture), the narrower the depth of field, called a shallower depth of field.

The depth of field is affected as described below:

1

A smaller aperture (larger aperture value) increases the depth of field.

Thus, using smaller aperture provides a deeper depth of field.

2

At a given subject distance and aperture value, a lens with a shorter focal length increases the depth of field.

Thus, a wide-angle lens gives a deeper depth of field than does a telephoto lens.

3

At a given aperture value, a greater distance between the camera and subject increases the depth of field.

4

When the optimum focus is on the subject, the depth of field behind the point of optimum focus is longer than the depth of field in front of the point of optimum focus. The depth of field is normally twice as deep behind the subject as in front of the subject (see illustration).

128

DPOF

Digital Print Order Format is a standard format for ordering prints of digital camera images from photo lab printing services, as well as printing from household printers. The Canon EOS

D60 is DPOF-compatible. You can specify printing from the camera itself and store the order information on the CF card. Photo printing services or household printers using the DPOF format can then produce prints easily using that information.

Exposure

Exposure refers to the amount of light striking the imaging element to produce an image. The amount of light appropriate for the ISO speed is called the correct exposure. The correct exposure is adjusted by changing the combination of the shutter speed and aperture value.

File Numbering and Folders

The pictures you take are automatically assigned file numbers from 0001-9900 and stored in folders of 100 images each. Each folder is numbered from 100 to 998 and recorded on the CF card.

However, during continuous shooting, a folder may store more than 101 images. Also note that there will be no folder numbers whose last two digits is “99.”

Images stored in formats other than RAW format have the file name Img_ and the extension ‘jpg’, and images stored in

RAW format have the file name CRW_ and the extension

Firmware

This is software containing various camera control instructions. The EOS D60 uses the firmware for image capture and image processing. Although the firmware is preinstalled in the camera, you can later install the latest version of the firmware when it becomes available on

Canon’s Web site.

Format

Formatting a CF card is the process of preparing the CF card to store image data. Be careful when formatting a CF card, because the formatting process erases all data stored on the card.

ISO Speed

An index number representing the photosensitivity of silver-halide photo film. This sensitivity standard is determined by the International Standards Organization (ISO), and is normally written as “ISO 100”, etc. The higher the ISO speed, the greater the sensitivity to light. Digital cameras use ISO speeds based on silver-halide photography.

JPEG

Joint Photographic Experts Group is a file format for compressing and storing color images.

The compression ratio can vary, but higher compression results in lower image quality when the file is expanded (restored).

RAW

This is an image file format that saves the image as is when captured by the camera’s imaging element. It is intended for image editing with a personal computer.

Image compression, saving, and decompression feature lossless image quality. By using the bundled software’s image-processing features, you can create the desired image characteristics.

Red-eye Phenomenon

In a relatively dark room, where subjects’ pupils are dilated, the light from a camera flash passes through the pupil, is reflected by the retina, and causes the subjects’ pupils to appear red. Red-eye is particularly prevalent when the flash is close to the optical axis of the lens.

Use the following procedure to minimize red-eye:

1

Shoot with the Red-eye reduction function turned on. (The red-eye reduction lamp lights before the image is taken, causing the pupils to contract and thus minimizing red-eye.)

2

Shoot with an EX-series Speedlite. (The light reflected from the pupil will not be directed along the optical axis of the lens, thus minimizing red-eye.)

3

Shoot from as close as possible (same effect as

2

).

Shutter Speed

The camera’s shutter opens for a variable length of time to control the amount of light that reaches the imaging element. This length of time is called the shutter speed.

Major Accessories (Optional)

Battery Pack BP-511

This is a powerful lithium ion rechargeable battery pack.

The rated voltage is 7.4V. You can use the Compact Power

Adapter CA-PS400 to charge the BP-511 battery pack, and when fully charged it has enough power for you to take approximately 490 images (Normal, with 50% flash use). Charging takes about 90 minutes.

Battery Grip BG-ED3

This is a battery grip that holds two BP-511 battery packs.

It provides a shutter button, electronic dials, AE lock/FE lock button, and AF point selection button for use in taking portrait (vertical) shots. (Can also use the DC coupler)

E-series Dioptric Adjustment Lenses

One of ten E-series dioptric adjustment lenses (-4 to +3 diopters) with eyecup can be attached to the camera’s eyepiece to further expand the dioptric correction range.

Shoe-mount Speedlites

Flash photography with an EX-series Speedlite is as easy as normal auto exposure shooting without flash. All EXseries Speedlites enable E-TTL autoflash, high-speed sync (FP flash), and FE lock. With the 550EX, an easy-touse, wireless E-TTL autoflash system is possible with multiple Speedlites.

Macro Flash

The EX-series Macro Lites are ideal for macro flash shooting.

You can fire only one or both flash tubes and control the flash ratio to easily obtain sophisticated lighting effects with E-TTL autoflash. Also, high-speed sync (FP flash), FE lock, and a multi-Speedlite, wireless system (with 550EX as a slave) are possible to achieve various macro flash effects.
