to injury or damage the equipment when wearing or holding it by the wrist strap.
• 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.
9
Introduction
• Avoid using, placing or storing the equipment in places subject to strong sunlight or high
temperatures, such as the dashboard or trunk (boot) of a car. Exposure to intense
sunlight and heat may cause the batteries to leak, overheat or explode, resulting in fire,
burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.
Ensure that there is good ventilation when using the compact power adapter to charge
the battery pack or power the camera.
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.
(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.

Place the battery in the adapter.
4
Charge the battery pack.
● Connect the power cord to the compact
power adapter.
● Insert the plug into a power outlet.
● Store the cover in a place where it will not
be lost.
● If you remove the battery from the camera,
be sure to reattach the cover to protect
against short circuit.
● Align the end of the battery with the < –>
mark on the adapter, press down on the
battery, and slide it into place.
● To remove the battery, use the reverse of
the above.
● Batteries can be charged in either the left or
right side of the adapter.
➡ 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.
1
Before You Start
● 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.
23

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:
(1) Halfway pressing ( 4 )
Pressing the shutter button down halfway activates
autofocusing (AF), and also activates the automatic exposure
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.
(2) Full pressing
This releases the shutter and takes the picture.
● This camera has been designed so that taking pictures is given priority over
other operations. Unless the internal memory is full, you will always be able to
take pictures immediately by pressing the shutter button down.
● Regardless of the camera status (playback, menu selection or image recording
in progress, etc.), you can return to shooting mode immediately by pressing the
shutter button down halfway.
29
Before You Start
● To save battery power, the camera automatically turns off if you do not operate it
for approximately one minute (Auto power off function). To use the camera
again, press the shutter button down halfway, or set the Main Switch to < OFF>
and then set it to <ON > again. You can use the Menu functions to set the Auto
power off function to [ 1 ], [ 2 ], [ 4], [ 8 ], [ 15 ], or [30 ] minutes, or [Off]. (→120)
● If you set the Main Switch to < OFF > immediately after you take a picture, the
access lamp may blink for a few seconds so that the image is recorded onto the
CF card.
The access lamp will go off when the image has been recorded onto the CF
card and the camera will turn off automatically.

➡ The AF mode is automatically set to <ONE
SHOT>, the drive mode to < >, and the
metering mode to < >.
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).
44
Landscape Mode
This mode is for sweeping scenery, sunsets, etc.
Set the Mode Dial to <

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).

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.

● 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.

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.

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.

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.

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 <
>.

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

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

Flash Photography
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.
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→124)
88
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.

● 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 Red-eye reduction
off.
lamp indicator
● 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 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.
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)
● FEB is applied from the 550EX Speedlite. For details, see the Instractions for your

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
+ (plus)
cord polarity that is the opposite of the EOS
D60’s PC terminal. Such flash units will not
work with the EOS D60 unless you change
the polarity of the sync cord. Consult the
manufacturer of the flash unit, or purchase a
– (minus)
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.
● 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.

● A non-Canon CF card or a CF card formatted with another camera or personal
computer might not work with the EOS D60 camera. In such a case, format the
CF card with the camera first. Then it might work with the camera.
● If you insert the CF card and the CF card error message “
” appears,
use a utility program such as Scan Disk to diagnose and fix the CF card.
● If the CF card error message “
” appears even after you format the CF
card, or you use Scan Disk or a similar utility program, use another CF card
instead.

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.
1
Order the prints from the
camera.
2 Just insert the
CF card into
the printer for
easy printing.
2 Take the CF card to a photo
printing service for easy ordering.
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.

● 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. (→27)

● 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

REFERENCE
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).

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.
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

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.

Program Line Description
The lower horizontal axis represents the shutter speed, and the right-hand vertical axis
represents the aperture value. The combinations of shutter speed and aperture value
automatically determined by Program AE are shown as colored lines with respect to the
subject brightness (Exposure Value) gradations on the left and top edges of the graph.
Example: Using an EF50 f/1.4 USM lens with a subject brightness of EV12, the point where
the diagonal line from EV12 (on the top edge) intersects the Program AE line
represents the corresponding shutter speed (1/350 second) and aperture value (f/
3.5) that the program sets automatically.
The diagonal arrowed lines at the upper left indicate the metering range for the
indicated ISO speed.
