MANUAL
Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
The EOS 5D Mark II is a high-performance, digital SLR camera with a
full-frame (approx. 36mm x 24mm) CMOS sensor with 21.10 effective
megapixels. Other features include DIGIC 4, high-precision and highspeed, 9-point AF (plus six Assist AF points); approx. 3.9 fps

The camera is highly responsive to any shooting situation at anytime,
provides many features for demanding shoots, and expands shooting
possibilities with system accessories.
Take a Few Test Shots to Familiarize Yourself with the
Camera
With a digital camera, you can immediately view the image you have
captured. While reading this manual, take a few test shots and see how
they come out. You can then better understand the camera.
To avoid botched pictures and accidents, read the Safety Warnings
(p.242,243) and Handling Precautions (p.12,13).

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 it 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, 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 it. 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.

Handling Precautions
LCD Panel and 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
temporary and will disappear when the camera is left unused for a few days.
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.
Cards
To protect the card and its recorded data, note the following:
Do not drop, bend, or wet the card. Do not subject it to excessive force,
physical shock, and vibration.
Do not store or use the card near anything having a strong magnetic field
such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to having
static electricity.
Do not leave the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source.
Store the card in a case.
Do not store the card in hot, dusty, or humid locations.
Lens
C
Y
P
O
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.
Contacts
Cautions During Prolonged Use
When you shoot continuously for a prolonged period or use Live View shooting
for a long period, the camera may become hot. Although this is not a
malfunction, holding the hot camera for a long period can cause slight skin
burns.

It takes about 2.5 hours to fully recharge a completely exhausted
battery at 23°C / 73°F. The time required to recharge the battery
depends on the ambient temperature and battery’s charge level.
For safety reasons, recharging in low temperatures (5°C - 10°C /
41°F - 50°F) will take a longer time (up to 4 hours).
24
Charging 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.
Even during non-use or storage, a charged battery will gradually
discharge and lose its power.
After recharging the battery, detach it and unplug the power
cord or prongs 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 sticker on the battery. If the battery is
exhausted, attach the cover in the opposite orientation.
Y
P
O
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 protective cover attached. Storing
the battery after it is fully charged can lower the battery’s performance.
C
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 necessary, attach a commercially-available
plug adapter for the respective country or region. Do not attach any
portable voltage transformer to the battery charger. Doing so can
damage the battery charger.
If the battery becomes exhausted quickly even after being fully
charged, the battery has worn out.
Purchase a new battery.
The charger cannot charge any battery other than Battery Pack LP-E6.
Battery Pack LP-E6 is dedicated to Canon products only. Using it with an
incompatible battery charger or product may result in malfunction or
accidents for which Canon cannot be held liable.

The figures above are based on a fully-charged Battery Pack LP-E6, no Live View
shooting, and CIPA (Camera & Imaging Products Association) testing standards.
The actual number of shots may be fewer than indicated above
depending on the shooting conditions.
Pressing the shutter button halfway for long periods or operating only the
autofocus can also reduce the number of possible shots.
The number of possible shots will decrease with more frequent use of
the LCD monitor.
The lens operation is powered by the camera’s battery. Depending on
the lens used, the number of possible shots may be lower.
Using the Image Stabilizer of the lens will decrease the number of
possible shots (shorter battery life).
For battery life with Live View shooting, see page 112.
See the [7 Battery info.] menu to further check the battery’s condition
(p.212).
If size-AA/LR6 batteries are used in Battery Grip BG-E6, a four-level
indicator will be displayed. ([

The access lamp lights or blinks while the picture is taken, when
data is being transferred to the card and when data is being
recorded, read, or erased on the card. While the access lamp is lit
or blinking, never do any of the following. Doing so may damage
the image data. It may also damage the card or camera.
• Opening the card slot cover.
• Removing the battery.
• Shaking or banging the camera around.
If the card already contains recorded images, the image number might
not start from 0001 (p.74).
If a card-related error message is displayed on the LCD monitor, remove
and reinstall the card. If the error persists, use a different card.
If you can transfer all the images in the card to a personal computer,
transfer all the images and then format the card. The card may then
return to normal.
When holding a hard disk-type card, always hold its sides. You may
damage the card by holding its flat surfaces. Compared to CF cards,
hard disk-type cards are more vulnerable to vibration and physical
shock. If you use such a card, be careful not to subject the camera to
vibration or physical shock especially while recording or displaying
images.

The Image Stabilizer is not effective for moving subjects.
The Image Stabilizer may not be effective for excessive shaking such as
on a rocking boat.
If you use the EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens for panned shots,
correction of camera shake might not be so effective.
The Image Stabilizer can operate with the focus mode switch set to
either <AF> or <MF>.
If the camera is mounted on a tripod, you can save battery power by
switching the IS switch to <2>.
The Image Stabilizer is effective even when the camera is mounted on a
monopod.

The focus confirmation light <o> blinks and focus is not
achieved.
Aim the AF point over an area having good contrast between light
and dark, then press the shutter button halfway (p.84). 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 does 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> (Auto Focus).
The shutter speed display is blinking.
Since it is too dark, taking the picture may result in a blurred shot
due to camera shake. Either use a tripod or an external EX-series
Speedlite (sold separately, p.103) when shooting.
Although I used an external Speedlite, the bottom part of the
photo came out dark.
If the lens hood is attached, it will obstruct the flash. If the subject is
near to the camera, detach the hood before shooting with flash.

Figures for the file size, possible shots, and maximum burst during continuous
shooting are based on Canon’s testing standards (ISO 100 and Standard
Picture Style) using a 2GB card. These figures will vary depending on the
subject, card brand, ISO speed, Picture Style, Custom Functions, etc.
Maximum burst during continuous shooting figures in parentheses apply to an
Ultra DMA (UDMA) 2GB card based on Canon’s testing standards.
If you select both RAW and JPEG, the same image will be recorded
simultaneously to the card in both types at the selected image-recording
quality. The two images will be saved in the same folder with the same
file numbers (file extension .JPG for JPEG and .CR2 for RAW).
When D1 or D2 is selected, the LCD panel will display D.
The icons are read as follows: 1 (RAW), D1 (Small RAW1),
D2 (Small RAW2), JPEG, 7 (Fine), 8 (Normal), 3 (Large), 4

About RAW
The RAW image is the data output by the image sensor, converted to
digital data and recorded on the card as is. You can select it from
among 1, D1, or D2. “RAW” written in the text will refer to
all three RAW settings: 1, D1, and D2.
With RAW images, you can use the provided software to make various
adjustments as needed. From the RAW image, the software can
develop and produce the adjusted image in the desired type such as
JPEG or TIFF.
About [8C.Fn II -2: High ISO speed noise reduction] and
RAW or RAW+JPEG images
Although [8C.Fn II -2: High ISO speed noise reduction] (p.195) settings
(Standard/Low/Strong/Disable) are applied to the recorded images, the
images used for image playback (on the LCD monitor or TV screen) and
direct printing (except RAW+73/83) are not applied with noise reduction
(noise may be noticeable in the images).
Confirm the noise reduction effects or print noise-reduced images with
Digital Photo Professional (provided software).

Maximum Burst During Continuous Shooting
The maximum burst during continuous shooting indicated on the
preceding page is the number of continuous shots that can be taken
without stopping, based on a formatted 2GB card.
The number is displayed in the
viewfinder on the bottom right. If the
maximum burst is 99 or higher, “99” will
be displayed.
56
3 Setting the Image-recording Quality
The maximum burst is displayed even when a card is not in the camera.
Make sure that a card is loaded before taking a picture.
If [8C.Fn II -2: High ISO speed noise reduction] is set to [2: Strong],
the maximum burst will be greatly reduced (p.195).
If the viewfinder displays “99” for the maximum burst, it means the
maximum burst is 99 or higher. If 98 or lower is displayed, the maximum
burst is 98 or lower. If you stop the continuous shooting, the maximum
burst will increase. After all the captured images are written to the card,
the maximum burst will be as listed on page 55.
The maximum burst indicator in the viewfinder will not change even
when you use a UDMA CF card. However, the maximum burst shown in
parentheses on page 55 will apply.

About White Balance
To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of
lighting. With a digital camera, the color temperature is adjusted with
software to make the white areas look white. This adjustment serves as
the basis for the color correction. The result is natural-looking colors in
the pictures.
You can also use the [2 White balance] menu to set the white balance.

White Balance Auto Bracketing
With just one shot, three images having a different color tone can be recorded
simultaneously. Based on the color temperature of the current white balance
setting, the image will be bracketed with a blue/amber bias or magenta/green
bias. This is called white balance bracketing (WB-BKT). White balance
bracketing is possible up to ±3 levels in single-level increments.

white balance, 2. Magenta (M) bias, 3. Green (G) bias.
During WB bracketing, the maximum burst for continuous shooting will be
lower and the number of possible shots will also decrease to one-third the
normal number. Also, the white balance icon will blink on the LCD panel.
You can also set white balance correction and AEB together with white
balance bracketing. If you set AEB in combination with white balance
bracketing, a total of nine images will be recorded for a single shot.
Since three images are recorded for one shot, the card will take longer to
record the shot.
“BKT” stands for Bracketing.

3 Lens Peripheral Illumination Correction
Due to the lens characteristics, the four corners of the picture might look

About the Lens Correction Data
The camera already contains lens peripheral light correction data for
about 25 lenses. In step 2, if you select [Enable], the peripheral light
correction will be applied automatically for any lens whose correction
data has been registered in the camera.
With the EOS Utility (provided software), you can check which lenses
have their correction data registered in the camera. You can also
register the correction data for unregistered lenses. For details, see the
Software Instruction Manual (CD-ROM) for EOS Utility.
C
Y
P
O
For JPEG images already captured, lens peripheral light correction
cannot be applied.
Depending on shooting conditions, noise might appear on the image
periphery.
When using a third-party lens, setting the correction to [Disable] is
recommended, even if [Correction data available] is displayed.
Lens peripheral light correction is applied even when an Extender is
attached.
If the correction data for the attached lens has not been registered to the
camera, the result will be the same as when the correction is set to
[Disable].
The correction amount applied will be slightly lower than the maximum
correction amount settable with Digital Photo Professional (provided
software).
If the lens does not have distance information, the correction amount will
be lower.
The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.

About Folders
C
Y
P
O
As with “100EOS5D” for example, the folder name starts with three digits
(folder number) followed by five alphanumeric characters. A folder can contain
up to 9999 images (file No. 0001 - 9999). When a folder becomes full, a new
folder with a higher one-up folder number is created automatically. Also, if
manual reset (p.75) is executed, a new folder will be created automatically.
Folders numbered from 100 to 999 can be created.
Creating Folders with a Personal Computer
With the card open on the screen, create a new folder named “DCIM”. Open
the DCIM folder and create as many folders as necessary to save and
organize your images. The folder name must follow the “100ABC_D” format
where the first three digits is 100 - 999 followed by five alphanumeric
characters. The five characters can be a combination of upper- or lower-case
letters from A to Z, numerals, and an underscore “_”. There can be no space in
the folder name. Also, folder names cannot have the same three-digit number
such as “100ABC_D” and “100W_XYZ” even if the letters are different.
73
3 File Numbering Methods
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 change how the file number is assigned.
The file number will appear on a personal computer in this format:

numbering continues in sequence up to 9999. This is convenient when
you want to save the images numbered anywhere between 0001 to
9999 in multiple cards or folders into one folder in your personal
computer.
If the replacement card or existing folder already contains images
recorded previously, the file numbering of the new images might
continue from the file numbering of the existing images in the card or
folder. If you want to use continuous file numbering, you should use a
newly-formatted card each time.

C
To reset the file numbering to 0001 or to start from file number

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, for example. After the
manual reset, the file numbering returns to continuous or auto reset.
If the file number in the folder No. 999 reaches 9999, shooting will not be
possible even if the card still has storage capacity. The LCD monitor will
display a message to replace the card. Replace with a new card.
For both JPEG and RAW images, the file name will start with “IMG_”. Movie
file names will start with “MVI_”. The extension will be “.JPG” for JPEG
images, “.CR2” for RAW images, and “.MOV” for movies.

3 Setting the Color SpaceN
The color space refers to the range of reproducible colors. With this
camera, you can set the color space for captured images to sRGB or
Adobe RGB. For normal shooting, sRGB is recommended.
In the fully-automatic modes (1/C), sRGB is set automatically.

P
O
This color space is mainly used for commercial printing and other
industrial uses. This setting is not recommended if you do not know
about image processing, Adobe RGB, and Design rule for Camera File
System 2.0 (Exif 2.21). The image will look very subdued in the sRGB
personal computer environment and with printers not compatible with
Design rule for Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21). Post-processing of
the image with software will therefore be required.
If the image is captured with the 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 in the CD-ROM.

If the [1 Beep] menu is set to [Off], the beeper will not sound when
focus is achieved.
AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
This AF mode is for moving subjects when
the focusing distance keeps changing. While
you hold down the shutter button halfway,
the subject will be focused continuously.
The exposure is set at the moment
the picture is taken.
In the d/s/f/a/F shooting
modes, AF is also possible by
pressing the <p> button.
79
f: Selecting the AF ModeN
When the AF point selection (p.81) is automatic, the camera first
uses the center AF point to focus. Within the spot metering circle,
there are six invisible Assist AF points („ in diagram) that function in
the AI SERVO AF mode. Therefore, even if the subject moves away
from the center AF point during autofocusing, focusing can still
continue. Also, even if the subject moves far away from the center
AF point, focus tracking continues as long as the subject is covered
by another AF point.
A manually-selected AF point will focus track the subject in the AI
Servo AF mode.
Y
P
O
With AI Servo AF, the beeper will not sound even when focus is achieved.
Also, the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will not light.
C
AI Focus AF for Automatic Switching of AF Mode
AI Focus AF switches the AF mode
from One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF
automatically if the still subject starts
moving.
After the subject is focused in the
One-Shot AF mode, if the subject
starts moving, the camera will detect
the movement and change the AF
mode automatically to AI Servo AF.
When focus is achieved in the AI Focus AF mode with the Servo mode
active, the beeper will sound softly. However, the focus confirmation light
<o> in the viewfinder will not light.

horizontal-line sensitive or vertical-line sensitive.
With lenses whose maximum aperture is larger than f/2.8
With the center AF point, high-precision, cross-type AF sensitive to both
vertical and horizontal lines is possible. The center AF point’s sensitivity
to vertical and horizontal lines is about twice as sensitive as the other
AF points. The remaining eight AF points are horizontal-line sensitive or
vertical-line sensitive.

When Autofocus Fails
Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the focus confirmation light <o>
blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:
Subjects difficult to focus
Low-contrast subjects
(Example: Blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.)
Subjects in low light
Extremely backlit or reflective subjects
(Example: Car with a reflective body, etc.)
Near and far subjects covered by an AF point
(Example: Animal in a cage, etc.)
Repetitive patterns
(Example: Skyscraper windows, computer keyboards, etc.)
In such cases, do one of the following:
(1) With One-Shot AF, focus an object at the same distance as the
subject and lock the focus before recomposing (p.50).

Mirror LockupN
Although using the self-timer or Remote Switch 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.
When [8C.Fn III -6: Mirror lockup] is set to [1: Enable] (p.199),
shooting with mirror lockup will be possible.

P
O
In very bright light such as at the beach or ski slope on a sunny day, take
the picture promptly after mirror lockup.
Do not point the camera toward the sun. The sun’s heat can scorch and
damage the shutter curtains.
If you use bulb exposures, the self-timer, and mirror lockup in
combination, keep pressing the shutter button completely (self-timer
delay time + bulb exposure time). If you let go of the shutter button
during the 10-sec./2-sec. self-timer countdown, there will be a shutterrelease sound. This is not the actual shutter release (no picture is taken).
C
When [1: Enable] is set, single shooting will take effect even if the drive
mode is set to continuous.
When the self-timer is set to <Q> or <k>, the picture will be taken
after 10 sec. or 2 sec. respectively.
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.
For mirror lockup shots, using the Remote Switch RS-80N3 or Timer
Remote Controller TC-80N3 (both sold separately) is recommended.
You can also lockup the mirror and shoot with the remote controller (sold

Set the camera’s shooting mode to <a> (manual exposure) or
<f> (aperture-priority AE) and adjust the aperture setting before
shooting.
When using a Speedlite which has manual flash mode, shoot in the
manual flash mode.
103
D Flash Photography
Using Non-Canon Flash Units
Sync Speed
The camera can synchronize with non-Canon compact flash units at 1/
200 sec. and slower speeds. With large studio flash units, since the
flash duration is longer, set the sync speed within 1/60 sec. to 1/30 sec.
Be sure to test the flash synchronization before shooting.
PC Terminal
The camera’s PC terminal can be
used with flash units having a sync
cord. The PC terminal is threaded to
prevent inadvertent disconnection.
The camera’s PC terminal has no
polarity. You can connect any sync
cord regardless of its polarity.

Cautions for Live View shooting
When using a non-Canon flash unit for Live View shooting, set the [6
Live View/Movie func. set.] menu’s [Silent shoot.] to [Disable]
(p.113). The flash will not fire if it is set to [Mode 1] or [Mode 2].
C
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 connect to the camera’s PC terminal any flash unit requiring 250
V or more.
Do not attach a high-voltage flash unit on the camera’s hot shoe. It might
not fire.

Live View Shooting Cautions
Notes About the Live View Image
Under low or bright light conditions, the Live View image might not reflect
the brightness of the captured image.
If the light source within the image changes, the screen might flicker. If
this happens, stop and resume the Live View shooting under the actual
light source to be used.
If you point the camera in a different direction, it might throw off the Live
View image’s correct brightness momentarily. Wait until the brightness
level stabilizes before shooting.
If there is a very bright light source in the picture, such as the sun, the
bright area might appear black on the LCD monitor. However, the actual
captured image will correctly show the bright area.
In low light, if you set the [6 LCD brightness] to a bright setting,
chrominance noise may appear in the Live View image. However, the
chrominance noise will not be recorded in the captured image.
When you magnify the image, the image sharpness may look more
pronounced than it really is.

About the <E> icon
If the camera’s internal temperature becomes high, the <E> icon may
appear on the screen. If you then continue with Live View shooting, the
image quality might degrade. You should stop Live View shooting and
allow the camera to rest.
If Live View shooting continues while the <E> warning icon is displayed
and the camera’s internal temperature increases further, the Live View
shooting will be terminated automatically. Live View shooting will be
disabled until the camera’s internal temperature decreases.

Live View Shooting Cautions
Notes About the Shooting Results
When you shoot with the Live View function at high ISO speeds, noise
(horizontal banding, dots of light, etc.) or irregular colors may appear.
When you shoot continuously with the Live View function for a long
period, the camera’s internal temperature may increase and it can
degrade image quality. Terminate Live View shooting when not shooting
images.
Before taking a long exposure, stop Live View shooting temporarily and
wait several minutes before shooting. This is to prevent image
degradation.
When you playback an image shot at high ISO speeds, noise or irregular
colors may appear.
If you take the picture during magnified view, the exposure might not
come out as desired. Return to the normal view before taking the picture.
During the magnified view, the shutter speed and aperture will be
displayed in red. Even if you take the picture during magnified view, the
image will be captured in the normal view.

Custom Function Notes
During Live View shooting, certain Custom Function settings will be
disabled (p.191-192).
If [8C.Fn II -4: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.196) is set to a setting
other than [3: Disable], the image may still look bright even if exposure
compensation or flash exposure compensation has been set to make the
exposure darker.

The Live View image can be recorded to the card as a
movie. You can shoot a movie with auto exposure,
shutter-priority AE, aperture-priority AE, or manual
exposure. The movie recording format will be MOV.
C
Cards which can record movies
When shooting movies, use a large-capacity card having a
read/write speed of at least 8 MB/sec.
If you use a slow-writing card when shooting movies, the movie
might not be recorded properly. And if you playback a movie on a
card having a slow reading speed, the movie might not playback
properly.
To check the card’s read/write speed, refer to the card

Notes for movie shooting
A single movie file will be recorded for each movie shot.
During movie shooting, the top, bottom, left, and right parts of the screen
will have a semi-transparent mask. The image area surrounded by the
mask is what will be recorded in the movie. The semi-transparent mask
size will change depending on the [Movie rec. size] setting (p.139).
Monaural sound is recorded by the camera’s built-in microphone (p.128).
Stereo sound recording is possible by connecting an external
microphone (commercially available) equipped with a stereo mini plug
(3.5mm dia.) to the camera’s external microphone IN terminal (p.16). Do
not connect the camera’s external microphone IN terminal to anything
other than an external microphone.
If [Screen settings] has been set to [Movie display], the depth-of-field
preview button will not work.
You can use the Remote Controller RC-6, RC-1, or RC-5 (sold
separately, p.102) to start and stop the movie shooting. With RC-6 or
RC-1, set the timing switch to <2> (2-sec. delay), then press the transmit
button. If the switch is set to <o> (immediate shooting), still photo
shooting will take effect.
If you playback the movie with “Shooting information display” (p.135), the

Movie Shooting Cautions
Recording and Image Quality
When you shoot movies at high ISO speeds, noise (horizontal banding,
dots of light, etc.) or irregular colors may appear.
If the attached lens has an Image Stabilizer, the Image Stabilizer will
operate at all times even if you do not press the shutter button halfway.
The Image Stabilizer may cause the total movie shooting time or the
number of possible shots to decrease. If you use a tripod or if the Image
Stabilizer is not necessary, you should set the IS switch to <2>.
The camera’s built-in microphone will also pick up camera operation
noise. If you use a commercially-available external microphone, you can
prevent (or reduce) these noises from being recorded.
Autofocusing during movie shooting is not recommended since it might
momentarily throw the focus way off or change the exposure. If the AF
mode has been set to [Quick mode], AF is not possible even if you
press the <p> button during movie shooting.
If [Screen settings] has been set to [Stills display] or [Exposure
simulation], the start of the movie shooting might momentarily record a
substantial exposure change.
If the card’s remaining capacity is not sufficient for movie shooting, the
movie shooting remaining time (p.135) will be displayed in red.
If you use a card having a slow writing speed, a five-level
indicator might appear on the right of the screen during movie
shooting. It indicates how much data has not yet been written
to the card (remaining capacity of the internal buffer memory).
The slower the card, the faster the indicator will climb upward.
If the indicator becomes full, movie shooting will stop
automatically.
Indicator
If the card has a fast writing speed, the indicator will either not
appear or the level (if displayed) will hardly go upward. First,
shoot a few test movies to see if the card can write fast enough.
During movie shooting, certain Custom Function settings will be disabled
(p.191-192).

Movie Shooting Cautions
Camera’s Internal Temperature Increase
If the camera’s internal temperature becomes high, the <E> icon may
appear on the screen. When not shooting, turn off the camera.
If you take still photos while the <E> icon is displayed on the screen, the
image quality may be degraded. The image quality of movies is not
affected.
If the <E> icon is displayed and you keep shooting movies until the
camera’s internal temperature rises further, the movie shooting will be
terminated automatically. Movie shooting will be disabled until the
camera’s internal temperature decreases.
Playback and TV Connection
If the brightness changes greatly during movie shooting, that part might
look momentarily still when you playback the movie.
If you connect the camera to a TV set (p.157-158) and shoot a movie,
the TV will not output any sound during the shooting. However, the
sound will be properly recorded.
If you connect the camera to a TV set with an HDMI cable (p.158) and
shoot a movie in [1920x1080], the movie being shot will be displayed at
a small size on the TV. However, the actual movie will be properly
recorded at the movie recording size that was set.

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 inclination.

k Enjoying Movies
Basically, there are the following three ways to playback the movies you
shot.
Playback on a TV set
(p.157, 158)
Use the provided stereo video cable or
HDMI Cable HTC-100 (sold separately)
to connect the camera to a TV set. You
can then playback the captured movies
and photos on the TV.
If you have a High-Definition TV set and
connect your camera with an HDMI
cable, you can watch Full HD (Full HighDefinition 1920x1080) movies with
higher image quality.
Y
P
O
Movies on a card can be played only by devices compatible with MOV
files.
Since hard disk recorders do not have an HDMI IN terminal, the camera
cannot be connected with an HDMI cable.
Even if the camera is connected to a hard disk recorder with a USB
cable, movies and photos cannot be played nor saved.
C
Playback on the Camera’s LCD Monitor
(p.153-156)
You can playback movies on the
camera’s LCD monitor. You can also
playback the photos and movies
recorded in the card as an automatic
slide show.
A movie edited with a personal computer cannot be rewritten to the card and
played back with the camera.

Playback and Editing with a Personal Computer
(See the PDF file instruction manual for ZoomBrowser EX/ImageBrowser)
The movie files recorded in the card can
be transferred to a personal computer
and played or edited with ZoomBrowser
EX/ImageBrowser (provided software).
You can also extract a single frame from
a movie and save it as a still photo.
To have the movie playback smoothly on a personal computer, the
personal computer must be a high-performance model. Regarding the
hardware requirements for ZoomBrowser EX/ImageBrowser, see the

Sensor Cleaning
Y
P
O
The camera has a Self Cleaning Sensor Unit attached
to the image sensor’s front layer (low-pass filter) to
shake off dust automatically.
The Dust Delete Data can also be appended to the
image so that the dust spots remaining can be erased
automatically by Digital Photo Professional (provided
software).
C
About smear adhering to the front of the sensor
Besides dust entering the camera from outside, in rare cases lubricant
from the camera’s internal parts may adhere to the front of the sensor.
In case visible spots still remain after the automatic sensor cleaning,
having the sensor cleaned by a Canon Service Center is recommended.
Even while the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit is operating, you can
press the shutter button halfway to interrupt the cleaning and start
shooting immediately.
165
f Automatic Sensor Cleaning
Whenever you set the power switch to <1/J> or <2>, the Self
Cleaning Sensor Unit operates to automatically shake off the dust on
the front of the sensor. Normally, you need not be aware of this
operation. However, you can execute the sensor cleaning at anytime as
well as disable it.

3 Appending Dust Delete DataN
Normally, the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit will eliminate most of the dust
that might be visible on captured images. However, in case visible dust
still remains, you can append the Dust Delete Data to the image to later
erase the dust spots. The Dust Delete Data is used by Digital Photo
Professional (provided software) to erase the dust spots automatically.

C
About the Dust Delete Data
After the Dust Delete Data is obtained, it is appended to all the JPEG
and RAW images captured thereafter. Before an important shoot, you
should update the Dust Delete Data by obtaining it again.
To erase dust spots automatically 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.
Be sure to use a solid-white object such as a new sheet of white paper. If the
paper has any pattern or design, it may be recognized as dust data and
affect the accuracy of the dust deletion with the software.
168
3 Manual Sensor CleaningN
Dust which could not be removed by the automatic sensor cleaning can
be removed manually with a blower, etc.
The surface of the image sensor is extremely delicate. If the
sensor needs to be cleaned directly, having it done by a Canon
Service Center is recommended.
Before cleaning the sensor, detach the lens from the camera.

possible.
169
3 Manual Sensor CleaningN
While cleaning the sensor, never do any of the following. Doing any
of the following will cut off the power and close the shutter. The
shutter curtains and image sensor might get damaged.
• Setting the power switch to <2>.
• Opening the battery compartment cover.
• Opening the card slot cover.
The surface of the image sensor is extremely delicate. Clean the sensor
with care.
Use a plain blower without any brush attached. A brush can scratch the
sensor.
Do not insert the blower tip inside the camera beyond the lens mount. If
the power is turned off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains or
reflex mirror might get damaged.
Never use canned air or gas to clean the sensor. The blowing force can
damage the sensor or the spray gas can freeze on the sensor.
If smear that cannot be removed with a blower remains, having the
sensor cleaned by a Canon Service Center is recommended.

done during Live View shooting in Live and Liveu modes.
You can make fine adjustments for the AF’s
point of focus. It can be adjusted in ±20 steps
(-: Forward / +: Backward).

is attached to the camera, its point of focus will
be shifted accordingly.
If adjustments for 20 lenses have already been registered and you want to
register an adjustment for another lens, select a lens whose adjustment can
be overwritten or deleted.
It is best to make the adjustment at the actual place to be photographed.
This will make the adjustment more precise.
With setting 2, if an Extender is used, the adjustment will be registered
for the lens and Extender combination.
The registered AF microadjustments will be retained even if you use the Custom
Function to clear all settings (p.190). However, the setting itself will be [0: Disable].

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-Related Problems
The battery cannot be recharged with the battery charger provided.
Do not recharge any battery pack other than genuine Canon Battery
Pack LP-E6.
The charger’s lamp blinks at high speed.
If there is a problem with the battery charger or battery pack or if
communication with the battery pack (non-Canon battery packs) is not
possible, the protective circuit will terminate the charging and the
orange lamp will blink quickly at a regular interval. If there is a problem
with the battery charger or battery pack, unplug the charger’s power
plug from the power outlet. Detach and reattach the battery pack to the
charger. Wait 2 to 3 minutes, then reconnect the power plug to the
power outlet.
C
Y
P
O
The charger’s lamp does not blink.
If the internal temperature of the battery pack attached to the charger
is high, the charger will not charge the battery for safety reasons (lamp
off). During the charging, if the battery’s temperature becomes high for
any reason, the charging will stop automatically (lamp blinks). When
the battery temperature goes down, the charging will resume
automatically.
The camera does not operate even when the power switch is set to <1>.
The battery is not properly installed in the camera (p.26).
Recharge the battery (p.24).
Make sure the battery compartment cover is closed (p.26).
Make sure the card slot cover is closed (p.29).
223
Troubleshooting Guide
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 card, the
access lamp will light/blink for a few sec. When the image recording is
completed, the power will turn off automatically.
The battery becomes exhausted quickly.
Use a fully-charged battery (p.24).
The battery performance might be degraded. See the [7 Battery
info.] menu to check the battery’s performance level (p.212). If the
battery performance is poor, replace the battery with a new one.
If you keep displaying the Quick Control screen (p.38) or shooting with
Live View function (p.107) for a prolonged period, the number of
possible shots will decrease.
Y
P
O
The camera turns off by itself.
C
Auto power off is in effect. If you do not want auto power off to take
effect, set the [5 Auto power off] menu to [Off].
Shooting-Related Problems
The lens cannot be attached.
The camera cannot be used with EF-S lenses (p.31).
The card cannot be used.
If a card error message is displayed, see page 30 or 231.
224
Troubleshooting Guide
No images can be shot or recorded.
The card is not properly inserted (p.29).
If the card is full, replace the card or delete unnecessary images to
make room (p.29, 160).
If you try to focus in 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.35, 84).
The image is out of focus.
Set the lens focus mode switch to <AF> (p.31).
To prevent camera shake, hold the camera still and press the shutter
button gently (p.34, 35).
If the lens has an Image Stabilizer, set the IS switch to <1>.
Y
P
O
The maximum burst during continuous shooting is lower.
Set [8C.Fn II -2: High ISO speed noise reduction] to one of the
following settings: [Standard/Low/Disable]. If it is set to [Strong], the
maximum burst will greatly decrease (p.195).
If you shoot a subject which has minute details (field of grass, etc.), the
file size will be larger and the maximum burst will be lower as
mentioned on page 55.
C
ISO 100 cannot be set.
If [8C.Fn II -3: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], the
settable ISO speed range will be ISO 200 - 6400. When [Disable] is
set, you can set any ISO speed (p.196).
225
Troubleshooting Guide
When I use the <f> mode with flash, the shutter speed
becomes slow.
If you shoot night scenes, the shutter speed becomes slow
automatically (slow-sync shooting) so that both the subject and
background are properly exposed. If you do not want a slow shutter
speed to be set, set [8C.Fn I -7: Flash sync. speed in Av mode] to
1 or 2 (p.194).
The flash does not fire.
Make sure the flash (or PC sync cord) is securely attached to the
camera.
If you use a non-Canon flash with Live View shooting, set [Silent
shoot.] to [Disable] (p.104).
Y
P
O
The flash always fires at full output.
If you use a flash unit other than an EX-series Speedlite, the flash will
always be fired at full output (p.103).
When the [Flash metering mode] flash Custom Function is set to
[TTL (autoflash)], the flash will always be fired at full output (p.106).
C
Flash exposure compensation cannot be set.
If flash exposure compensation has already been set with the
Speedlite, flash exposure compensation cannot be set with the
camera. When the Speedlite’s flash exposure compensation is set to
0, flash exposure compensation can be set with the camera.
High-speed sync cannot be set in the Av mode.
Set [8C.Fn I -7: Flash sync. speed in Av mode] to [0: Auto]
(p.194).
226
Troubleshooting Guide
Live View shooting is not possible.
For Live View shooting, use a memory card (a hard disk-type card is not
recommended). A hard disk-type card requires a lower temperature
range for operation than normal memory cards. If the temperature gets
too high, the Live View shooting may stop temporarily to prevent damage
to the card’s hard disk. When the camera’s internal temperature
decreases, you can resume Live View shooting (p.123).
I cannot take still photos at the shutter speed, aperture or ISO
speed I set during Live View shooting.
Set [Screen settings] to [Stills display] or [Exposure simulation]
(p.109).
Y
P
O
Movie shooting terminates by itself.
If the card’s writing speed is slow, movie shooting may stop
automatically. Use a card with a read/write speed of at least 8 MB per
sec. To find out the card’s read/write speed, see the card
manufacturer’s Web site.
If the movie file size reaches 4 GB or if the movie is shot for 29 min. 59
sec., the movie shooting will stop automatically.
C
Movies cannot be shot with manual exposure.
Set [LV func. setting] to [Stills+movie], set [Screen settings] to
[Movie display] (p.126), and set the Mode Dial to <a>.
The ISO speed cannot be set when shooting movies.
When the shooting mode is set to <1/C/d/s/f/F>, the ISO
speed will be set automatically. You can set the ISO speed manually in
the <a> mode (p.131).
227
Troubleshooting Guide
During movie shooting, the exposure becomes bright
momentarily.
Changing the aperture during movie shooting is not recommended
since changes in the exposure, due to the drive of the lens aperture,
will be recorded.
If you use a lens whose aperture changes while you zoom, you should
not zoom while shooting a movie. Zooming while shooting a movie
may record changes in the exposure.
When the movie is played, the subject looks distorted.
During movie shooting, if you quickly move the camera left or right
(high-speed panning) or shoot a moving subject, the image might look
distorted.
Y
P
O
When I shoot still photos during movie shooting, movie
shooting terminates.
C
To shoot still photos during movie shooting, using a CF card
compatible with UDMA transfer rates is recommended.
Setting a lower image-recording quality for still photos and shooting
fewer continuous still photos can also resolve the problem.
The movie cannot play.
Movies shot with another EOS camera might not play on this camera.
Movies edited with a personal computer using the provided software,
etc., cannot be played with the camera.
When the movie is played, camera operation noise can be heard.
If you operate the camera’s dials or lens during movie shooting, the
operation noise will also be recorded. Using an external microphone
(commercially available) (p.141) is recommended.
228
Troubleshooting Guide
Display & Operation Problems
The LCD monitor does not display a clear image.
If dust is adhering to the LCD monitor, wipe its surface with a lens cloth
or soft cloth.
In low or high temperatures, the LCD monitor display may seem slow
or might look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.
Few tabs and options are displayed on the menu screen.
In the fully-automatic modes (1/C), some tabs and options are not
displayed. Set the shooting mode to <d/s/f/a/F> (p.40).
Y
P
O
Part of the image blinks in black.
The [4 Highlight alert] option is set to [Enable] (p.145).
A red box is displayed on the image.
C
The [4 AF point disp.] option is set to [Enable] (p.145).
The image cannot be erased.
If the image has been erase-protected, it cannot be erased (p.159).
The file name’s first character is an underscore (“_MG_”).
Set the color space to sRGB. If Adobe RGB is set, the first character
will be an underscore (p.76).
The file numbering does not start from 0001.
If you use a card which already has images recorded, the file
numbering might start from the last image in the card (p.74).
The shooting date and time displayed is incorrect.
The correct date and time has not been set (p.42).
229
Troubleshooting Guide
No image appears on the TV screen.
Make sure the stereo video cable or HDMI cable’s plug is connected
all the way in (p.157,158).
Set the video OUT format (NTSC/PAL) to the same video format as
the TV (p.221).
Use the stereo video cable that came with the camera (p.157).
Sensor Cleaning Problems
The shutter makes a noise during sensor cleaning.
If you selected [Clean nowf], the shutter will make a shutter sound
two times (p.166).

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.
C

P
O
• 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.
