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 the 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.

Do not block the mirror operation with your finger, etc. Doing so may cause a malfunction.

Y 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

COP 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 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 chemicals that result in rust and corrosion such as in a 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 such as a foreign trip 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 may be a few dead pixels displaying only black or red, etc. among the remaining 0.01% or less pixels.

Dead pixels 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.

The LCD monitor display may seem slow in low temperatures, or look black in high temperatures. 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, or vibration.

Do not touch the card’s electronic contacts with your fingers or anything metallic.

Do not affix any stickers, etc., on the card.

Y such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to having static electricity.

Lens

Do not leave the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source.

Store the card in a case.

COP

After detaching the lens from the camera, put down the lens with the rear end up and attach the lens caps to avoid scratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.

Contacts

Cautions regarding Prolonged Use

If you use continuous shooting, Live View shooting, or movie shooting for a prolonged 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.

About the Lens Image Stabilizer

When you use the IS lens’ built-in Image Stabilizer, camera shake is corrected to obtain a sharper shot. The procedure explained here is based on the EF24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens as an example.

Stabilizer misoperation may occur.

The Image Stabilizer may not be effective for excessive shaking such as on a rocking boat.

The Image Stabilizer may not be effective when you use the EF24-

105mm f/4L IS USM lens for panned shots.

38

The Image Stabilizer can operate with the lens focus mode switch set to either <AF> or <MF>.

When using a tripod, you can still shoot with the IS switch set to <1> with no problem. However, to save battery power, setting the IS switch to

<2> is recommended.

The Image Stabilizer is effective even when the camera is mounted on a monopod.

With the EF24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens, the Image Stabilizer mode may switch automatically to suit the shooting conditions.

Basic Operation

2 Shooting Portraits

The <2> (Portrait) mode blurs the background to make the human subject stand out. It also makes skin tones and the hair look softer.

Shooting Tips

Y

The further the distance between the subject and background, the better.

COP

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. For closeups of the face, focus the eyes.

The default setting is <i> (Continuous shooting). If you hold down the shutter button, you can shoot continuously to obtain different poses and facial expressions (max. approx. 4.5 shots/sec.).

When shooting night scenes, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.

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 (sold separately).

Y

Shooting Tips

COP

A simple background makes the flower, etc., stand out better.

Move as close as possible to the subject.

Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. Some lenses have indications such as <40.25m/0.8ft>. The lens minimum focusing distance is measured from the <V> (focal plane) mark on the top left of the camera to the subject. If you are too close to the subject, the focus confirmation light <o> will blink.

With a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.

If you have a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the subject look larger.

69

5 Shooting Moving Subjects

To photograph a moving subject, whether it is a child running or a moving vehicle, use the <5> (Sports) mode.

Y

Shooting Tips

Use a telephoto lens.

Use the center AF point to focus.

Aim the center AF point over the subject, then press the shutter button halfway to autofocus. During autofocusing, the beeper will continue beeping softly. If focus cannot be achieved, the focus confirmation light <o> will blink.

The default setting is <i> (Continuous shooting). When you want to take the picture, press the shutter button completely. If you hold down the shutter button, continuous shooting (max. approx. 4.5 shots per sec.) and autofocusing will take effect to capture the movement of the subject.

70

Under low light when camera shake is prone to occur, the viewfinder’s shutter speed display on the bottom left will blink. Hold the camera steady and shoot.

6 Shooting Night Portraits (With a Tripod)

To shoot people at night and obtain a natural-looking night scene in the background, use the <6> (Night Portrait) mode. Flash is required.

Using a tripod is also recommended.

Shooting Tips

Y

COP night view. Also, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.

Also shoot in another shooting modes.

Since camera shake is prone to occur with night shots, shooting also with <A> and <F> is recommended.

Tell the subject to keep still even after the flash fires.

If you use the self-timer together with flash, the self-timer lamp will light up briefly after the picture is taken.

During Live View shooting, it may be difficult to focus dots of light such as in a night scene. In such a case, you should set the AF method to [Quick

mode] and shoot. If it is still difficult to focus, set the lens’ focus mode switch to [MF] and focus manually.

71

F Shooting Night Scenes (Handheld)

Normally, a tripod is necessary to steady your camera when shooting a night scene. However, with the <F> (Handheld Night Scene) mode, you can shoot night scenes while handholding the camera. In this mode, four shots are taken continuously for each picture, and a resulting bright image with reduced camera shake is recorded.

Shooting Tips

Hold the camera firmly.

COP

Y

While shooting, hold the camera firmly and steadily. If any of the four shots are greatly misaligned due to camera shake, etc., they may not align properly in the final image.

When including a human subject:

With flash, you can shoot both the human subject and night scene background while handholding the camera. To take a nice portrait, the first shot will use flash. Tell the person not to move until all four continuous shots are taken.

72

See the cautions on page 74.

G Shooting Backlit Scenes

When shooting a scene having both bright and dark areas, use the

<G> (HDR Backlight Control) mode. When you take a picture, three continuous shots are taken at different exposures, and the resulting image with the least loss of shadow detail due to backlighting and widest tonal range is recorded.

Shooting Tips

Hold the camera firmly.

COP

Y

While shooting, hold the camera firmly and steadily. If any of the three shots are greatly misaligned due to camera shake, etc., they may not align properly in the final image.

Even if a Speedlite is attached to the camera, it will not fire.

See the cautions on page 74.

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range.

73

74

Cautions for <F> (Handheld Night Scene)

During Live View shooting, it may be difficult to focus dots of light such as in a night scene. In such a case, you should set the AF method to [Quick

mode] and shoot. If it is still difficult to focus, set the lens’ focus mode switch to [MF] and focus manually.

When shooting flash photography, if the subject is too close to the camera, the picture may come out extremely bright (overexposure).

If you use flash when shooting dimly lit night scenes, or human subjects in situations where the subject and background are both near enough to be illuminated by the flash, the shots may not align correctly. This can result in a blurry photo.

Regarding flash coverage:

• When using a Speedlite with automatic flash coverage setting, the zoom position will be fixed to the wide end, regardless of the lens’ zoom position.

• When using a Speedlite with manual flash coverage switch, shoot with the flash head retracted to the wide (normal) position.

Cautions for <G> (HDR Backlight Control)

Y

Note that the image may not be rendered with a smooth gradation and may look irregular or have significant noise.

HDR Backlight Control may not be effective for excessively backlit

COP

Cautions for both <F> (Handheld Night Scene) and <G> (HDR

Backlight Control)

Compared with other shooting modes, the shooting area will be smaller.

You cannot select RAW and RAW+JPEG. In other shooting modes, if

RAW is set, the image quality will be 73. Also, if RAW+JPEG is set, the image will be recorded in the set JPEG quality.

If you shoot a moving subject, the subject’s movement will leave afterimages.

The image alignment may not function properly with repetitive patterns

(lattice, stripes, etc.), flat or single-tone images, or greatly misaligned shots caused by camera shake.

Recording the image to the card will take longer than with normal shooting. During the processing of the images, “buSY” will be displayed in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel and you cannot take another picture until the processing is completed.

If the shooting mode is set to <F> or <G>, direct printing is not possible. Select another shooting mode and do direct printing.

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.

COP 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.

138

• 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.

Y

• 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.

COP

• 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.
