Safety Warnings
Follow these safeguards and use the equipment properly to prevent injury, death,
and material damage.
Preventing Serious Injury or Death
• To prevent fire, excessive heat, chemical leakage, and explosions, follow the
safeguards below:
- Do not use any batteries, power sources, and accessories not specified in this
booklet. Do not use any home-made or modified batteries.
- Do not short-circuit, disassemble, or modify the battery pack or back-up battery. Do
not apply heat or apply solder to the battery pack or back-up battery. Do not expose
the battery pack or back-up battery to fire or water. And do not subject the battery
pack or back-up battery to strong physical shock.
- Do not install the battery pack or back-up battery in reversed polarity (+ –). Do not
mix new and old or different types of batteries.
- Do not recharge the battery pack outside the allowable ambient temperature range
of 0°C - 40°C (32°F - 104°F). Also, do not exceed the recharging time.
- Do not insert any foreign metallic objects into the electrical contacts of the camera,
accessories, connecting cables, etc.
• Keep the back-up battery away from children. If a child swallows the battery, consult a
physician immediately. (Battery chemicals may harm the stomach and intestines.)
• When disposing of a battery pack or back-up battery, insulate the electrical contacts
with tape to prevent contact with other metallic objects or batteries. This is to prevent
fire or an explosion.
• If excessive heat, smoke, or fumes are emitted during battery pack recharging,
immediately unplug the battery charger from the power outlet to stop the recharging
and prevent a fire.
• If the battery pack or back-up battery leaks, changes color, deforms, or emits smoke or
fumes, remove it immediately. Be careful not to get burned in the process.
• Prevent any battery leakage from contacting your eyes, skin, and clothing. It can
cause blindness or skin problems. If the battery leakage contacts your eyes, skin, or
clothing, flush the affected area with lots of clean water without rubbing it. See a
physician immediately.
• During the recharging, keep the equipment away from the reach of children. The cord
can accidentally choke the child or give an electrical shock.
• Do not leave any cords near a heat source. It can deform the cord or melt the
insulation and cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not fire the flash at someone driving a car. It may cause an accident.
• Do not fire the flash near a person’s eyes. It may impair the person’s vision. When
using flash to photograph an infant, keep at least 1 meter away.
• Before storing the camera or accessory when not in use, remove the battery pack and
disconnect the power plug. This is to prevent electrical shock, heat generation, and
fire.
• Do not use the equipment where there is flammable gas. This is to prevent an
explosion or fire.
10
• If you drop the equipment and the casing breaks open to expose the internal parts, do
not touch the internal parts due to the possibility of electrical shock.
• Do not disassemble or modify the equipment. High-voltage internal parts can cause
electrical shock.
• Do not look at the sun or an extremely bright light source through the camera or lens.
Doing so may damage your vision.
• Keep the camera from the reach of small children. The neck strap can accidentally
choke the child.
• Do not store the equipment in dusty or humid places. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Before using the camera inside an airplane or hospital, check if it is allowed.
Electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the plane’s
instruments or the hospital’s medical equipment.
• To prevent fire and electrical shock, follow the safeguards below:
- Always insert the power plug all the way in.
- Do not handle a power plug with wet hands.
- When unplugging a power plug, grasp and pull the plug instead of the cord.
- Do not scratch, cut, or excessively bend the cord or put a heavy object on the cord.
Also do not twist or tie the cords.
- Do not connect too many power plugs to the same power outlet.
- Do not use a cord whose insulation has been damaged.
• Occasionally unplug the power plug and use a dry cloth to clean off the dust around
the power outlet. If the surrounding is dusty, humid, or oily, the dust on the power outlet
may become moist and short-circuit the outlet to cause a fire.
Preventing Injury or Equipment Damage
• Do not leave equipment inside a car under the hot sun or near a heat source. The
equipment may become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not carry the camera around while it is attached to a tripod. Doing so may cause
injury. Also make sure the tripod is sturdy enough to support the camera and lens.
• Do not leave a lens or lens-attached camera under the sun without the lens cap
attached. Otherwise, the lens may concentrate the sun’s rays and cause a fire.
• Do not cover or wrap the battery-recharging apparatus with a cloth. Doing so may trap
heat within and cause the casing to deform or catch fire.
• If you drop the camera in water or if water or metal fragments enter inside the camera,
promptly remove the battery pack and back-up battery. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Do not use or leave the battery pack or back-up battery in a hot environment. Doing so
may cause battery leakage or a shorter battery life. The battery pack or back-up
battery can also become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the equipment.
Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard.
If the product does not work properly or requires repair, contact
your dealer or your nearest Canon Service Center.

Handling Precautions
Camera Care
This camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physical
shock.
The camera is not waterproof and cannot be used underwater. If you
accidentally drop the camera into water, promptly consult your nearest
Canon Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry cloth. If the
camera has been exposed to salty air, wipe with a well-wrung wet cloth.
Never leave the camera near anything having a strong magnetic field such
as a magnet or electric motor. Also avoid using or leaving the camera near
anything emitting strong radio waves such as a large antenna. Strong
magnetic fields can cause camera misoperation or destroy image data.
Do not leave the camera in excessive heat such as in a car in direct sunlight.
High temperatures can cause the camera to malfunction.
The camera contains precision electronic circuitry. Never attempt to
disassemble the camera yourself.
Use a blower to blow away dust on the lens, viewfinder, reflex mirror, and
focusing screen. Do not use cleaners that contain organic solvents to clean
the camera body or lens. For stubborn dirt, take the camera to the nearest
Canon Service Center.
Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your fingers. This is to
prevent the contacts from corroding. Corroded contacts can cause camera
misoperation.
If the camera is suddenly brought in from the cold into a warm room,
condensation may form on the camera and internal parts. To prevent
condensation, first put the camera in a sealed plastic bag and let it adjust to
the warmer temperature before taking it out of the bag.
If condensation forms on the camera, do not use the camera. This is to avoid
damaging the camera. If there is condensation, remove the lens, CF card
and battery from the camera, and wait until the condensation has
evaporated before using the camera.
If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery
and store the camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. Even while the
camera is in storage, press the shutter button a few times once in a while to
check that the camera is still working.
Avoid storing the camera where there are corrosive chemicals such as a
darkroom or chemical lab.
If the camera has not been used for an extended period, test all its functions
before using the camera. If you have not used the camera for some time or if
there is an important shoot coming up, have the camera checked by your
Canon dealer or check the camera yourself and make sure it is working
properly.
12
Handling Precautions
LCD Monitor
Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision
technology with over 99.99% effective pixels, there might be a few dead
pixels among the remaining 0.01% or less pixels. Dead pixels displaying
only black or red, etc., are not a malfunction. They do not affect the images
recorded.
If the LCD monitor is left on for a prolonged period, screen burn-in may occur
where you see remnants of what was displayed. However, this is only
temporarily and will disappear when the camera is left unused for a few
days.
CF Card
The CF card is a precision device. Do not drop the CF card or subject it to
vibration. Doing so could damage the images recorded on them.
Do not store or use the CF card near anything having a strong magnetic field
such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to having
static electricity. Otherwise, the images recorded on the CF card might be
lost.
Do not leave the CF card in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Doing so
can warp the cards and make them unusable.
Do not spill any liquid onto the CF card.
Always store your CF cards in a case to protect the data stored on them.
Do not bend the card or subject it to any excessive force or physical shock.
Do not store the CF card in hot, dusty, or humid locations.
Lens Electrical Contacts
Contacts
After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the lens
caps or put down the lens with the rear end up to avoid
scratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.

Recharging the Battery
Tips for Using the Battery and Charger
Recharge the battery on the day before or on the day it is to be used.
An unused charged battery will still gradually lose its power over time. The time required
to recharge the battery depends on the ambient temperature and battery’s power level.
Do not recharge the battery for longer than 24 hours (to avoid
degrading the battery performance).
After recharging the battery, detach it and unplug the charger
from the power outlet.
You can attach the cover in a different
orientation to indicate whether the battery
has been recharged or not.
If the battery has been recharged, attach the cover so that
the battery-shaped hole <
> is aligned over the blue seal
on the battery. If the battery is exhausted, attach the cover in the opposite orientation.
Use the battery in an ambient temperature range of 0°C - 40°C / 32°F - 104°F.
To attain best battery performance, an ambient temperature of 10°C - 30°C /
50°F - 86°F is recommended. In cold locations such as snowy areas, battery
performance and operation time may temporarily decrease.
When not using the camera, remove the battery.
If the battery is left in the camera for a prolonged period, a small amount of power current is
released, resulting in excess discharge and shorter battery life. Store the battery with the cover
attached. Storing the battery after it is fully charged can lower the battery’s performance.
The battery charger can also be used in foreign countries.
The battery charger is compatible with a 100 V AC to 240 V AC 50/60 Hz
power source. If the shape of the prongs is different, purchase a plug adapter
for that country. Do not attach any voltage transformer to the battery charger.
Doing so can damage the battery charger.
If the battery becomes exhausted quickly even after being fully
charged, replace the battery.
Replace the battery with a new one.
Do not use the battery charger to recharge any battery other than Battery Pack NB-2LH.
Battery Pack NB-2LH is dedicated to Canon only. Using it with a nonCanon battery charger or product may result in malfunction or accidents
for which Canon cannot be held liable.

FAQ
The focus confirmation light <o> blinks and focus is not achieved.
Aim the AF point over a part having good contrast between light and dark, then
press the shutter button halfway. (p.160) If you are too close to the subject,
move away and try again.
Sometimes multiple AF points flash simultaneously.
This indicates that focus has been achieved at all those AF points. As long as
the AF point covering the desired subject flashes, you can take the picture.
The beeper continues to beep softly. (The focus confirmation
light <o> also does not light.)
It indicates that the camera is focusing continuously on a moving subject. (The
focus confirmation light <o> does not light.) While the beeper is beeping, you
can press the shutter button completely to shoot a moving subject in focus.
Pressing the shutter button halfway will not focus the subject.
When the focus mode switch on the lens is set to <MF> (Manual Focus), the
camera does not focus. Set the focus mode switch to <AF>.
When I focus the subject and then zoom up and take the
picture, the focus looks soft.
If you want to zoom, do it before focusing. Turning the zoom ring after
achieving focus may throw off the focus slightly.
Although it is daylight, the flash popped up.
For a backlit subject, the flash may pop up to help reduce harsh shadows on
the subject.
In low light, the built-in flash fired a series of flashes.
To assist the autofocusing, pressing the shutter button halfway may trigger the
built-in flash to fire a series of flashes. This is called AF-assist beam. It is
effective up to approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet away.
Although flash was used, the picture came out dark.
The subject was too far away. The subject should be within 5 meters/16.4 feet
from the camera.
When flash was used, the bottom part of the picture came out
unnaturally dark.
The subject was too close to the camera, and a shadow was created by the lens.
The subject should be at least 1 meter/3.3 feet away from the camera. If a hood
(optional) has been attached to the lens, remove it before taking the flash picture.
41
1 Full Auto Techniques
Recomposing the Shot
Depending on the scene, position the subject toward the left or right to
create a balanced background and good perspective.
In the <1> (Full Auto) mode, while you press the shutter button
halfway to focus a still subject, the focus will be locked. You can then
recompose the shot and press the shutter button completely to take the
picture. This is called focus lock. Focus lock is also possible in other
Basic Zone modes (except <5>).
Shooting a Moving Subject
In the <1> (Full Auto) mode, if the subject moves (distance to camera
changes) during or after you focus, the AI Servo AF will take effect to
focus the subject continuously. As long as you keep aiming the AF point
on the subject while pressing the shutter button halfway, the focusing
will be continuous. When you want to take the picture, press the shutter
button completely.
42
2 Shooting Portraits
The <2> (Portrait) mode blurs the background to make the human
subject stand out. It also makes flesh tones and the hair look softer than
with the <1> (Full Auto) mode.
Shooting Tips
The further the distance between the subject and background,
the better.
The further the distance between the subject and background, the
more blurred the background will look. The subject will also stand
out better in front of a plain, dark background.
Use a telephoto lens.
If you have a zoom lens, use the telephoto end to fill the frame with
the subject from the waist up. Move in closer if necessary.
Focus the face.
Check that the AF point covering the face flashes in red.
If you hold down the shutter button, you can shoot continuously to obtain
different poses and facial expressions. (Approx. 3 shots/sec.)
If necessary, the built-in flash will pop-up automatically.
43
3 Shooting Landscapes
Use the <3> (Landscape) mode for wide scenery, night scenes, and
to have everything in focus from near to far. The greens and blues also
become more vivid and sharp than with <1> (Full Auto).
Shooting Tips
Use a wide-angle lens.
When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end. This will have
objects near and far in focus, better than at the telephoto end. It also
adds breadth to landscapes.
Shooting night scenes.
Since the built-in flash will be disabled, this
mode is also good for night scenes. For night
scenes, use a tripod to prevent camera
shake. If you want to photograph a person
against a night scene, set the Mode Dial to
<6> and use a tripod. (p.47)
44
4 Shooting Close-ups
When you want to photograph flowers or small things up close, use the
<4> (Close-up) mode. To make small things appear much larger, use a
macro lens (optional).
Shooting Tips
Use a simple background.
A simple background makes the flower, etc., stand out better.
Move to the subject as close as possible.
Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. Some lenses
have indications such as <40.28m/0.9ft>. The lens minimum
focusing distance is measured from the <V> (focal plane) mark on
the camera to the subject. If you are too close to the subject, the
focus confirmation light <o> will blink.
Under low light, the built-in flash will fire. If you are too close to the
subject and the bottom of the picture looks dark (due to the lens
barrel obstructing the flash), move away from the subject.
With a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.
If you have a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the
subject look larger.
45
5 Shooting Moving Subjects
To photograph a moving subject whether it be a child running or an auto
race, use the <5> (Sports) mode.
Shooting Tips
Use a telephoto lens.
Using a telephoto lens is recommended so you can shoot from afar.
Use the center AF point to focus.
Aim the center AF point over the subject, then press the shutter
button halfway to auto focus. During autofocusing, the beeper will
continue beeping softly. If focus cannot be achieved, the focus
confirmation light <o> will blink.
When you want to take the picture, press the shutter button
completely. While holding down the shutter button, continuous
shooting (max. approx. 3 shots per sec.) and autofocusing will take
effect.
Under low light when camera shake is prone to occur, the viewfinder’s
shutter speed display on the lower left will blink. Hold the camera steady
and shoot.
46
6 Shooting Portraits at Night
To shoot someone at night and obtain a natural-looking exposure in the
background, use the <6> (Night Portrait) mode.
Shooting Tips
Use a wide-angle lens and a tripod.
If you use a zoom lens, set it to the wide-angle end to obtain a wide
night view. For night scenes, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.
Keep the person within 5 meters/16.4 feet from the camera.
Under low light, the built-in flash will fire automatically to obtain a
good exposure of the person. The effective distance of the built-in
flash is 5 meters/16.4 feet from the camera.
Shoot also with <1> (Full Auto).
Since camera shake is prone to occur with night shots, shooting also
with <1> (Full Auto) is recommended.
If the self-timer is also used, the self-timer lamp will flash after the picture is
taken.
47
7 Disabling Flash
In places where flash photography is prohibited, use the <7> (Flash
Off) mode. This mode is also effective for candlelight scenes when you
want to obtain the candlelight effect.
Shooting Tips
If the numeric display in the viewfinder blinks, take care to
prevent camera shake.
Under low light when camera shake is prone to occur, the
viewfinder’s shutter speed display will blink. Hold the camera steady
or use a tripod. If you have a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to
reduce blur due to camera shake.
Taking portraits without flash.
Under low light, the person must not move until the picture is taken.
If the person moves during the exposure, he or she might look
blurred in the picture.

Advanced Shooting
Techniques
In the Basic Zone modes, most functions are set
automatically and cannot be changed to prevent spoiled
shots. In the <d> (Program AE) mode, you can set
various functions and be more creative.
In the <d> (Program AE) mode, the camera sets the
shutter speed and aperture automatically to obtain the
standard exposure.
The difference between the Basic Zone modes and <d> is
explained on page 158.
* <d> stands for Program.

2 TakeFocus
the subject and press the
shutter button completely.
X The captured image will be displayed
for about 2 sec. on the LCD monitor.
Shooting Tips
Check the shutter speed in the viewfinder.
When you press the shutter button halfway, the bottom of the
viewfinder will display the shutter speed from 30" to 4000 (30 - 1/
4000 sec.). The darker it is, the lower the number (slower shutter
speed) will be. A slower shutter speed is more likely to result in
camera shake.
As a general rule, if the shutter speed is slower (lower number) than
the reciprocal of the lens focal length multiplied by 1.6 (For example,
if the lens focal length is 55mm, 55 x 1.6 is 80 so the reciprocal of 1/
80) is the minimum shutter speed required to prevent camera shake.
If the shutter speed is slower than this, either increase the ISO
speed (p.53) or use the flash (p.54).
The program can be shifted. (Program shift)
After pressing the shutter button halfway, turn the <6> dial to change
the shutter speed and aperture setting combination (program).
In very low light or very bright light, the exposure setting
will blink when you press the shutter button halfway, as
shown in the figure. In low light, either increase the ISO

Using the Built-in Flash
Shooting Tips
If the subject is far away, increase the ISO speed.
A higher ISO speed increases the effective range or distance of the flash.
In bright light, decrease the ISO speed.
If the exposure setting in the viewfinder blinks in bright light, decrease the ISO speed.
Detach the lens hood and keep at least 1 meter/3.3 feet away
from the subject.
If the lens hood (optional) is attached or if you are too close to the
subject, the bottom portion of the picture might turn out dark. For
important shots, check the image on the LCD monitor to make sure
the flash exposure looks good (not dark at the bottom).
Shooting without the built-in flash.
Shooting under low light can cause blur due to camera shake. Hold
the camera as still as possible or use a tripod.
Using Red-eye Reduction
Using the red-eye reduction lamp before taking a flash picture can
reduce red eye. Red-eye reduction can be set in any shooting mode
except <3> <7> <5>.
Under the [z] tab, select [Red-eye
On/Off] and press <0>. Set it to
[On], then press <0>.
When you press the shutter button
halfway, the red-eye reduction lamp
will light. Then when you press the
shutter button completely, the picture
will be taken.
The red-eye reduction feature is most effective when the subject looks at the red-eye
reduction lamp, when the room is well lit, and when you go closer to the subject.
When you press the shutter button halfway, the viewfinder display on the bottom right
will gradually turn off. For best results, take the picture after this display turns off.
The effectiveness of red-eye reduction varies from subject to subject.

3 Setting the Image-Recording Quality
FAQ
What’s the difference between 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8?
3, 4, and 6 indicate the image size. 3: Large, 4: Medium, and 6: Small, 7
(Fine) and 8 (Normal) indicate the image quality based on the data compression
rate. The 7 image has higher image quality. If 8 is selected, the image quality
will be slightly lower, but more images can be saved to the CF card.
Which recording quality is recommended?
You have to take into consideration the capacity of the CF card, the size of the
paper for printing the image, and the number of shots you plan to take. For
example, if you use a 512MB CF card to take 100 shots, select the highest
image quality 73. Or if you use a 256MB CF card to shoot 80 shots and want
to print on A3-size or larger paper, select 83. If it will be A4 size, select 74.
Can the image-recording quality also be selected in the Basic
Zone modes?
Yes, the image-recording quality other than 1 and 1+73 can be
selected. Set the recording quality in both the Basic Zone and Creative Zone
modes respectively.
What is the shooting capacity with CF cards other than 512MB?
Format the CF card and check the number of possible shots on the LCD monitor.
I took more shots than the number of possible shots indicated.
Depending on the shooting conditions, you may be able to take more shots
than was indicated. Or, you might be able to take fewer shots than indicated.
The possible shots displayed is only an estimate.
How many shots can be taken continuously? (Maximum burst)
73: 27 shots, 1: 10 shots, 1+73: 8 shots. In other image-recording
quality modes, the maximum burst will be higher than 73. When the
maximum burst is 8 or lower, the number normally indicated as “9” on the
bottom right of the viewfinder will display a lower number. Note that this
number will also be displayed even when no CF card is installed in the
camera. Be careful not to shoot without a CF card in the camera.
How large is the file size of one image?
See “File size” on page 166.
When do I use the 1 mode?
RAW images require processing with your personal computer. For details, see
“About 1” and “About 1+73” on the next page.

1 is the raw data before it is made into a 73 and other images.
Although RAW images require software like Digital Photo Professional
(provided) so they can be displayed on the computer, they also offer
flexibility for image adjustments possible only with RAW. RAW is
effective when you want to create your own art or shoot an important
subject.
For example, with a RAW image, you can use the software to change
the Picture Styles (see next page) freely to create various versions of
the same image: Landscape-type colors, monochrome, or even sepia
toning. Also, if you took the picture with the wrong white balance
(explained in Chapter 4), you can change the white balance without
degrading the image quality.
Note that RAW images will not work with direct printing or DPOF.
About 1+73
1+73 records both a RAW image and JPEG image with a single
shot. The two images are saved to the CF card. Since the 73 image is
recorded as a processed image, you can view it as is on a personal
computer without the bundled software or print it as is. With 1+73,
the two images are saved with the same file number in the same folder.
You can distinguish between them with the image type or extension.
The RAW image’s extension is “CR2”, and the 73 image’s extension is
“JPG”.

Shooting Tips
To freeze the action or moving subject.
Use a fast shutter speed such as 1/500 sec. to 1/4000 sec.
To blur a running child or animal giving the impression of fast
movement.
Use a medium shutter speed such as 1/60 sec. to 1/250 sec. Follow
the moving subject through the viewfinder and press the shutter
button to take the picture. If you use a telephoto lens, hold it steady
to prevent camera shake.
How to blur a flowing river or water fountain.
Use a slow shutter speed such as 1/5 sec. to 1/15 sec. Use a tripod
to prevent camera shake.
Set the shutter speed so that the aperture display does not
blink in the viewfinder.
If you press the shutter button halfway and change
the shutter speed while the aperture is displayed,
the aperture display will also change to maintain the
same exposure (amount of light reaching the
imaging sensor). If you exceed the adjustable
aperture range, the aperture display will blink to
indicate that the standard exposure cannot be obtained.
If the exposure will be too dark, the lowest aperture value will blink. If
this happens, turn the <6> dial to the left to set a slower shutter
speed or increase the ISO speed.
If the exposure will be too bright, the highest aperture value will
blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial to the right to set a faster
shutter speed or decrease the ISO speed.
Using the Built-in Flash
The flash exposure will be set automatically to match the aperture that
was set automatically. The flash sync speed can be set from 30 sec. to
1/200 sec.
67
f: Changing the Depth of Field
To obtain a blurry background or to make everything near and far look

About the Aperture Display
The larger the f/number, the smaller the aperture opening will be. The
apertures displayed will differ depending on the lens. If no lens is attached to
the camera, “00” will be displayed for the aperture.
68
f: Changing the Depth of Field
Shooting Tips
When using a high aperture value, note that camera shake can
occur in low light scenes.
A higher aperture value will make the shutter speed slower. Under
low light, the shutter speed can be as long as 30 sec. In such cases,
increase the ISO speed and hold the camera steady or use a tripod.
The depth of field depends not only on the aperture, but also
the lens and subject distance.
Since wide-angle lenses have a wide depth of field, you need not set
a high aperture value to obtain a sharp picture from the foreground
to the background. On the other hand, a telephoto lens has a narrow
depth of field.
And the closer the subject, the narrower the depth of field. A farther
subject will have a wider depth of field.
Set the aperture so that the shutter speed display does not
blink in the viewfinder.
If you press the shutter button halfway and change
the aperture while the shutter speed is displayed,
the shutter speed display will also change to
maintain the same exposure (amount of light
reaching the imaging sensor). If you exceed the
adjustable shutter speed range, the shutter speed
display will blink to indicate that the standard
exposure cannot be obtained.
If the picture will be too dark, the 30" (30 sec.) shutter speed display
will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial to the left to set a lower
aperture value or increase the ISO speed.
If the picture will be too bright, the 4000 (1/4000 sec.) shutter speed
display will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial to the right to
set a higher aperture value or decrease the ISO speed.

f: Changing the Depth of Field
Using the Built-in Flash
The flash exposure will be set automatically to match the aperture that
was set. The shutter speed will set automatically between 30 sec. - 1/
200 sec. to suit the scene’s brightness.
In low light, the main subject is exposed with the automatic flash, and
the background is exposed with a slow shutter speed set automatically.
Both the subject and background look properly exposed (automatic
slow-speed flash sync). If you are handholding the camera, keep it
steady to prevent camera shake. Using a tripod is recommended.
To prevent slow-speed sync, access the [b Custom Function
(C.Fn)] menu’s [Flash sync. speed in Av mode] (p.104) and set it to
[1/200sec. (fixed)].

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

density of a color temperature conversion filter.)
88
3 White Balance CorrectionN
White Balance Auto Bracketing
With just one shot, three images having a different color tone can be
recorded simultaneously. Based on the white balance mode’s standard
color temperature, the image will be bracketed with a blue/amber bias
or magenta/green bias. This is called white balance bracketing. White
balance bracketing is possible up to ±3 levels in single-level increments.
Set the white balance bracketing

mark on the screen will change to “
”
(3 points). Turning the <6> dial to the
right sets the B/A bracketing, and turning
it to the left sets the M/G bracketing.
X On the right side of the screen, “BKT”
indicates the bracketing direction and the
bracketing amount is also displayed.
Press <0> to exit the setting and

Bracketing Sequence
Correct white balance, blue bias, and amber bias. Or, correct white
balance, magenta bias, and green bias.
If the image-recording quality is set to RAW or RAW+73, white balance
bracketing cannot be used.
With white balance bracketing set, the maximum burst will be fewer
during continuous shooting. The number of possible shots will also
decrease to about one-third the normal number.
Since three images are recorded for one shot, the CF card will take
longer to record the shot.
“BKT” stands for Bracketing.
89
Preventing Camera Shake
To prevent camera shake, using a tripod is effective. When pressing the
shutter button, do it carefully without shaking the camera. Preventing
camera shake while you press the shutter button on a tripod-mounted
camera is explained below.
Using Remote Control to Shoot
Using Remote Switch RS-60E3 or Remote Controller RC-1/RC-5 (both
optional) can prevent camera shake and enable remote shooting.
Remote Switch RS-60E3
Remote switch with a 60 cm/2.0 feet cord for
pressing the shutter button halfway or fully. It
connects to the camera’s remote control terminal.
Remote Controller RC-1/RC-5
Remote controller to shoot wirelessly up to about
5 meters/16.4 feet from the camera. (p.153) The
RC-1 can trip the shutter immediately or after a 2sec. delay, and the RC-5 trips the shutter after a
2-sec. delay.
90
RC-1
RC-5
Preventing Camera Shake
Mirror Lockup
Although remote control shooting can prevent camera shake, using
mirror lockup to prevent camera vibrations can also help when you use
a super telephoto lens or shoot close ups. Mirror lockup is enabled by
accessing [b Custom Function (C.Fn)] and setting [Mirror lockup]
(p.105) to [1:Enable].
Press the shutter button completely to
lockup the reflex mirror.
Then press the shutter button
completely again to take the picture.
The reflex mirror will then go back
down.
Shooting Tips
Do not point the camera toward the sun.
The sun’s heat can scorch and damage the shutter curtains.
With the self-timer, the picture can be taken after a 2-sec. delay.
When you press the shutter button completely, the mirror locks up, then
the picture is taken 2 sec. later. For bulb exposures, hold down the shutter
button until you want to end the exposure. If you let go of the shutter
button during the 2-sec. self-timer countdown, there will be a shutterrelease sound. This is not the actual shutter release (no picture is taken).
Remote control shooting
Since you do not touch the camera when the picture is taken, remote
control shooting together with mirror lockup can further prevent
camera shake. With Remote Controller RC-5, pressing the transmit
button locks up the mirror before the shot is taken 2 sec. later. With
RC-1, set it to 2-sec. delay, then shoot.
If <i> (Continuous shooting) has been set, single shooting will still take effect.
The mirror locks up, and after 30 seconds, it will go back down
automatically. Pressing the shutter button completely again locks up the
mirror again.

3 File Numbering Method
The file number is like the frame number on a roll of film. The captured
images are assigned a sequential file number from 0001 to 9999 and
saved in one folder. You can also change how the file number is
assigned.
The file number will appear on the personal computer in this format:
IMG_0001.JPG.
Under the [c] tab, select [File
numbering], then press <0>. Follow
the steps below to select a file
numbering method, then press <0>.
[Continuous]: The file numbering continues in sequence even
after the CF card is replaced.
Even after you replace the CF card, the file numbering continues in
sequence up to 9999. This is convenient when you want to save the
images numbered anywhere between 0001 to 9999 in one folder in
your personal computer.
If the replacement CF card contains images recorded previously, the
file numbering of the new images might continue from the file
numbering of the existing images in the card. If you want to use
continuous file numbering, you should use a newly-formatted CF
card each time.

Each time the CF card is replaced, the file numbering starts from
0001. This is convenient if you want to organize images according to
CF cards.
If the replacement CF card contains images recorded previously, the
file numbering of the new images might continue from the file
numbering of the existing images in the card. To start the file
numbering from 0001, the CF card must be formatted before use.

File numbering is reset
[Manual reset]: You can reset the file numbering 0001 at any
time or for a new folder.
When you reset the file numbering manually, a new folder is created
automatically and the file numbering of images saved to that folder
starts from 0001. This is convenient when you want to use different
folders for the images taken yesterday and the ones taken today.
After the manual reset, the file numbering returns to continuous or
auto reset.
If folder No. 999 is created, [Folder number full] will appear on the LCD
monitor. If that folder contains images reaching file number 9999, shooting will
not be possible even if the CF card still has storage capacity. The LCD monitor
will display a message to replace the CF card. Be sure to replace the CF card.
For both JPEG and RAW images, the file name will start with “IMG_”. The file
name extension will be “.JPG” for JPEG images and “.CR2” for RAW images.

3 Transferring Images to a Personal Computer
By connecting the camera to a personal computer, you can transfer
images from the camera’s CF card by operating the camera. This is
called direct image transfer.
Before connecting the camera to the personal computer, be
sure to install the bundled software (EOS Digital Solution Disk/
CD-ROM) in the personal computer.
For instructions on how to install the software, see “Software Guide.”
Preparation for Image Transfer

3 Automatic Sensor Cleaning
When you turn the camera’s power switch on or off, the Self Cleaning
Sensor Unit operates to automatically remove dust adhering to the
imaging sensor. You normally need not pay attention to this feature.
However, if you want to activate this self-cleaning manually or disable it,
follow the instructions below.
Manual self-cleaning
Select [Sensor cleaning: Auto].
Under the [b] tab, select [Sensor
cleaning: Auto], then press <0>.
With [Clean now] selected, press
<0>. The self-cleaning will be
performed for about 1 sec., then the
menu will reappear.
For maximum effectiveness, set the camera upright horizontally (do not
tilt up or down) before executing [Clean now].
If [Clean now] is grayed out and cannot be selected, wait a while until it
is selectable.
Disabling automatic sensor cleaning
With the screen above displayed,
press the <U> key to select [Set
up], then press <0>.
Press the <U> key to select
[Disable], then press <0>.
To minimize dust from entering the camera, note the following
countermeasures:
When changing lenses, do it in a place with minimal dust.
When storing the camera without a lens attached, be sure to attach
the body cap.
Clean the body cap before attaching it.
111
3 Appending Dust Delete DataN
Normally, the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit will eliminate most of the dust
visible on captured images. However, in case visible dust still remains,
you can append Dust Delete Data to the image to later erase the dust
spots. The Dust Delete Data is used by the Digital Photo Professional
program (provided) to erase the dust spots automatically.
Preparation
Get a solid-white object (paper, etc.).
Set the lens focal length to 50mm or longer.
Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and set the focus to infinity
(∞). If the lens has no distance scale, look at the front of the lens and
turn the focusing ring clockwise all the way.

“Data obtained” screen will appear.
Select [OK] and press <0>. The
menu will reappear.
About the Dust Delete Data
After the Dust Delete Data is obtained, it is appended to all the JPEG or
RAW images captured thereafter. The data will also be appended to
images taken in the Basic Zone modes. Before an important shoot, you
should update the Dust Delete Data by obtaining it again.
Regarding the automatic dust erasure with the bundled software, see
the Software Instruction Manual in the CD-ROM.
The Dust Delete Data appended to the image is so small that it hardly
affects the image file size.
113
3 About “Sensor cleaning: Manual”N
Under the [b] tab, [Sensor cleaning: Manual] is mainly for use by
Canon service personnel. Dust which could not be eliminated by the
Self Cleaning Sensor Unit can be directly cleaned off the sensor.
Therefore, you normally need not use this feature.
The surface of the imaging sensor is extremely delicate. If the
sensor needs to be cleaned directly, have it done by a Canon
Service Center.
However, if you want to clean the sensor yourself, follow the procedure
below:
1
Select [Sensor cleaning: Manual].
Under the [b] tab, select [Sensor
cleaning: Manual], then press <0>.
[OK].
2 Select
Select [OK], then press <0>.
X In a moment, the mirror will lockup

power switch to <2>.
While cleaning the sensor, never do any of the following. If the
power is cut off, the shutter will close and it may damage the
shutter curtains and imaging sensor.
• Setting the power switch to <2>, opening the CF card slot
cover, or opening the battery compartment cover.
Never use canned air or gas to clean the sensor.
For the power source, using the AC Adapter Kit (p.154) is recommended.
If you use a battery, make sure it is fully recharged.

Shooting Information Display
Histogram
The brightness histogram display shows the exposure
level distribution, overall brightness and gradation. And
the RGB histogram display is suited for checking the
color saturation and gradation. The display can be
switched with the [x Histogram] menu.
Being able to analyze the histogram and using it to
improve the next shot requires advanced knowledge and
experience. Only a basic explanation is provided here.
Sample Histograms
Dark image
Normal image
[Brightness] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the distribution of the
image’s brightness level. The horizontal axis indicates the
Bright image
brightness level (darker on the left and brighter on the right),
while the vertical axis indicates how many pixels exist for each brightness level.
The more pixels there are toward the left, the darker the image. And the more pixels
there are toward the right, the brighter the image.
If there are too many pixels on the left, the shadow detail will be lost. And if there are
too many pixels on the right, the highlight detail will be lost. The tones in-between will
be reproduced.
By checking the image’s brightness histogram, you can see the exposure level bias
and the overall tone reproduction condition.
[RGB] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the distribution of the image’s brightness
level of each primary color (RGB or red, blue, and green). The horizontal axis
indicates the color’s brightness level (darker on the left and brighter on the
right), while the vertical axis indicates how many pixels exist for each color
brightness level. The more pixels there are toward the left, the darker and less
prominent the color. And the more pixels there are toward the right, the brighter
and denser the color. If there are too many pixels on the left, the respective
color information will be lacking. And if there are too many pixels on the right,
the color will be too saturated with no detail.
By checking the image’s RGB histogram, you can see the color’s saturation and
gradation condition and white balance bias.

Printing Images
The camera can be connected directly to a PictBridge
printer or to a CP Direct or Bubble Jet printer and print
images.
You can select a number of pictures and print them all in
one batch (DPOF). (p.144)
About DPOF
DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) is a standard for recording
printing instructions (image selections, number of copies, etc.)
in the CF card. In this way, you can print multiple pictures in
one batch or give the printing order to a photofinisher.
Canon’s PictBridge Web Site
The Web site below gives more information on using your
Canon camera with various printers, such as which paper
types to use.

Preparing to Print
RAW images are not compatible with direct printing.
If you use a battery to power the camera, make sure it is fully charged.
With a fully charged battery, printing up to about 4 hours is possible.
If there is a long beeping sound in step 5, it indicates a problem with the
PictBridge printer. To find out what’s wrong, do the following:
Press the <x> button to playback the image and follow the steps below.
1. Press <0>.
2. On the print setting screen, select [Print].
The error message will be displayed on the LCD monitor. (p.138)
When connecting the camera to the printer, do not use any cable other
than the dedicated interface cable.
After printing starts and while the <l> button’s blue lamp blinks, do
not unplug the cable.
Before disconnecting the cable, turn off the camera and printer first. Pull
out the cable while holding the plug, not the cord.
For direct printing, using AC Adapter Kit ACK-DC20 (optional) to power the
camera is recommended.

EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlites
Basically operates like a built-in flash for easy operation.
When an EX-series Speedlite is attached to the camera, almost all the
autoflash control is done by the camera. In other words, it is like a highoutput flash attached externally in place of the built-in flash. For detailed
procedures, see the EX-series Speedlite’s instruction manual. The
camera is a Type-A camera compatible with all features of EX-series
Speedlites.
Shoe-mount Speedlites
Macro Lites
Canon Speedlites other than the EX-series
The flash cannot be fired with an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlite
set in the TTL or A-TTL autoflash mode. Use the Speedlite’s manual
flash mode instead if provided.
Non-Canon Speedlites
The camera can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash units at 1/
200 sec. or slower. Be sure to test the flash unit beforehand to make
sure it synchronizes properly with the camera.
If the camera is used with a flash unit or flash accessory dedicated to
another camera brand, the camera may not operate properly and
malfunction may result.
Do not attach a high-voltage flash unit on the camera’s hot shoe. It might
not work.

When Autofocus Fails
The camera might not be able to focus the following types of subjects:
Low-contrast subjects
Example: Blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.
Subjects in low light.
Extremely backlit reflective subjects
Example: Car with a reflective body, etc.
Overlapping near and far objects
Example: Animal in a cage, etc.
Repetitive patterns
Example: Skyscraper windows, computer keyboards, etc.
In such cases, do one of the following:
1. Focus an object at the same distance as the subject and lock the
focus before recomposing. (p.42)
2. Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
If an Extender (optional) is attached and the maximum aperture of the lens
is f/5.6 or smaller (larger f/number), AF will not be possible. For details, see
the Extender’s instruction manual.
160
Troubleshooting Guide
If there is a problem, first refer to this Troubleshooting Guide. If this
Troubleshooting Guide does not resolve the problem, contact your
dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
Power Source
The camera does not operate even when the power switch is
set to <1>.
The battery is not installed in the camera. (p.26)
If the power lamp does not light, recharge the battery. (p.24)
Make sure the battery compartment cover is closed. (p.26)
Make sure the CF card slot cover is closed. (p.28)
The access lamp still blinks even when the power switch is
set to <2>.
If the power is cut off while an image is being recorded to the CF card,
the access lamp will light/blink for a few sec. After the image is
recorded to the CF card, the camera turns off automatically.
The battery becomes exhausted quickly.
Use a fully-charged battery. (p.24)
The rechargeable battery will wear out after repeated use. Purchase a
new one.
The camera turns off by itself.
If pressing the shutter button halfway turns on the power, it means the
auto power off feature turned off the camera. If you do not want auto
power off to take effect, set [c Auto power off] on the menu to [Off].
Even if [c Auto power off] has been set to [Off], the LCD monitor
will turn off after laying idle for 30 min. Press the <B> button to turn
on the LCD monitor.
161
Troubleshooting Guide
Shooting
No images can be shot or recorded.
The CF card is not properly inserted. (p.28)
If the CF card is full, replace with a new CF card or erase unnecessary
images. (p.28, 123)
If you try to focus in the One-Shot AF mode while the focus
confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be
taken. Press the shutter button halfway again to focus, or focus
manually. (p.33, 58)
The LCD monitor does not display a clear image.
If dust is adhering to the LCD monitor, wipe with a lens cloth or soft
cloth.
In low or high temperatures, the LCD monitor display may seem slow
or it might look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.
The image is out of focus.
Set the lens focus mode switch to <AF>. (p.30)
To prevent camera shake, hold the camera still and press the shutter
button gently. (p.32, 33)
The CF card cannot be used.
If a CF card-related error message is displayed, see page 38 or 163.
The camera makes a noise when it is shaken.
The built-in flash’s pop-up mechanism shakes slightly. This is normal.
162
Troubleshooting Guide
Image Review & Operation
The image cannot be erased.
If the image has been erase-protected, it cannot be erased. (p.122)
The wrong shooting date and time is displayed.
The correct date and time has not been set. (p.37)
No image appears on the TV screen.
Make sure the video cable plug is connected all the way in. (p.121)
Set the video OUT format (NTSC/PAL) to the same video format as
the TV. (p.157)
Use the video cable that came with the camera. (p.121)
Error Codes
If a problem occurs with the camera, an
error message is displayed. Follow the
suggested solution to resolve the
problem. To recover from the error
screen, turn the power switch off and on,
or remove and reinstall the battery.
If error 02 (CF card problem) is displayed,
remove and reinstall the CF card or
Countermeasures
format the card. This may resolve the
problem.
If the same error keeps occurring, there may be a problem. Write
down the error code and consult your nearest Canon Service
Center.
Error code
If an error code appears right after shooting, the picture might not have been
captured. After the error is resolved, press the <x> button and check if the
picture was captured.
