EOS-1Ds. Do not use it with other products or batteries. There is a risk of fire and other
hazards.
IMPORTANT
• Do not remove the CF card from the camera while the CF card access lamp is blinking. A
blinking access lamp indicates that data on the CF card is being written or read. Removing the card at such a time will destroy the data.
• When connecting the camera to a personal computer, do not use any interface cable
other than the one provided with the camera. Using the wrong cable may result in
malfunction.
8
CAUTIONS
• Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas. Storage in these areas could lead to
fire, electrical shock or other damage.
• Be careful not to bang the camera or subject it to strong impacts or shocks that could lead
to injury or damage the equipment when wearing or holding it by the neck strap.
PREVENTING MALFUNCTIONS
Avoid Strong Electromagnetic Fields
Never place the camera near electric motors or other equipment generating strong
electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong electromagnetic fields may cause malfunctions
or corrupt image data.
Avoid Condensation
Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may cause condensation (water droplets) to form on its external and internal surfaces. You can avoid this by
placing the equipment in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it adjust to
temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag.
If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation. Continued use may
damage the equipment. Remove the CF card and battery or DC Coupler Kit (if connected) from the camera and wait until the moisture evaporates completely before
resuming use.
Extended Storage
When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the battery (except the
lithium battery CR2025) and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera for
extended periods with a battery installed will run down the battery and may damage the
camera.
PREVENTING MALFUNCTIONS
• When the CF Card Access Lamp is blinking, do not open the CF card slot cover. Since
the card is reading and writing data when the lamp is blinking opening the CF card slot
cover at this time will damage the image data.
• Do not use any cable other than that supplied with the camera. Use the supplied interface
cable to connect the camera to a computer. Use of any other cable may lead to a
malfunction.
SKIN BURN HAZARD
• When the camera’s main switch is <
> for a prolonged period, the camera body may
become hot. Although this is not a malfunction, holding the camera for a long period may
cause low-degree skin burns. Take care to avoid skin burns.
9
Introduction
• Avoid using, placing or storing the equipment in places subject to strong sunlight or high
temperatures, such as the dashboard or trunk (boot) of a car. Exposure to intense
sunlight and heat may cause the batteries to leak, overheat or explode, resulting in fire,
burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause deformation of the casing.
Ensure that there is good ventilation when using Ni-MH Charger NC-E2 to charge NP-E3.
Handling Cautions
Camera Care
(1) The camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physical shock.
(2) This camera is not waterproof and cannot be used underwater. If you drop the camera
into water, promptly consult your nearest Canon Service Center. Wipe off any water

(7) Do not touch the electrical contacts with your fingers.
Corrosion may develop on the contacts, resulting in improper camera operation.
(8) If the camera is suddenly brought into a warm environment from a cold one, condensation
(water droplets) may form on the camera and internal parts. To avoid this, first put the
camera in a vinyl bag and let it adjust gradually to the warmer temperature.
(9) If condensation develops on the camera, do not use the camera. Remove the CF card
and battery and wait until the condensation evaporates.
(10) If the camera is not to be used for an extended period, remove the battery. Store the
camera in a well-ventilated, cool, dry place. During the storage period, release the shutter
a few times once in a while.
(11) Avoid storing the camera in a laboratory, cabinet, etc., where corrosive chemicals are
present.
(12) If the camera has not been used for an extended period or if the camera is to be used for
an important event, check the operation of all the camera controls or take it to your
nearest Canon Service Center.
LCD Monitor and LCD Panels
(1) The color LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision technology. There may
be a few dead pixels where a black, red, or green pixel is always displayed. They number
no more than 0.02 percent (standard tolerance) of all effective pixels. They also do not
affect the images recorded.
(2) Do not press hard against the LCD monitor or LCD panel or subject it to physical shock.
Doing so may result in a warped display or malfunction.
(3) If the LCD monitor or LCD panels become dirty, use a blower brush or soft cloth to clean.

panel, see “Formatting a CF Card” on page 126 to format the card.
Do not use a low-capacity CF card. If the image file size is large, the CF card may
not be able to save it.
A microdrive is a recording medium using a hard disk. It has a large capacity and
the price per megabyte is low. However, compared to a CF card equipped with a
flash memory, it is vulnerable to vibration and physical shock. If you use a
microdrive, be careful not to subject the camera to vibration, shake, or physical
shock while it is recording or displaying images.

Halfway pressing (
)
When you press the shutter button halfway,
autofocusing (AF) is activated to focus the subject and
auto exposure metering is used to set the correct
shutter speed and aperture.
The shutter speed and aperture settings are displayed
in the viewfinder and on the top LCD panel.
Full pressing
This releases the shutter and takes the picture.
If you press the shutter button halfway and ( ) elapse, press it halfway again and wait a
moment before pressing it fully to take a picture. If you press the shutter button fully without
pressing it halfway first or if you press the shutter button halfway and then press it fully
immediately, the camera will still take a moment before it takes the picture.
Pressing the shutter button halfway will also make the camera standby to take a picture at any time.
Therefore, even while you are playing back images on the LCD monitor or operating the on-screen
menu or if the camera is recording image data, you can go back to taking pictures on the spot.

About White Balance
The three R (red), G (green), and B (blue) primary colors exist in varying proportions in a light
source depending on its color temperature. When the color temperature is high, there is more
blue. And when the color temperature is low, there is more red. As the color temperature
increases from low to high, the color cast changes in the following sequence: red, orange,
yellow, white, and bluish white. For example, if you have a white object under a lit tungsten
light bulb, it will look red or orange in the photograph. If it is under fluorescent light, it will look
greenish.
To the human eye, a white object still looks white regardless of the type of lighting. The human
eye is highly adaptive to different types of lighting and color temperatures. With a film-based
camera, you can attach a color correction filter to the lens or use tungsten film to compensate
for the color cast caused by the light source's color temperature. With a digital camera’s white
balance setting, you can digitally compensate (based on a standard white color) the color
temperature so that the colors in the image look more natural.

A higher ISO speed number indicates a higher sensitivity to light. Therefore, a high ISO speed
is suited for moving subjects or taking pictures in low-light conditions. However, the image will
contain more noise to make it look coarse or grainy. On the other hand, a low ISO speed will
make the image look finer, but it is not suited for freezing motion or shooting in low light.
The camera can be set to any of the following ISO speeds: ISO 100, 125, 160, 200, 250, 320,

This method enables the file numbering to continue in numeric sequence even after you
change the folder for storing subsequent images or after you replace the CF card. This
prevents any images from having the same file number. Therefore you can manage the

Note that if you start to store subsequent images into a another folder or CF card which

Creating a Folder with a Personal Computer
You can also use a personal computer to create a new folder to store images.
With the CF card open on the screen, create a new folder named “Dcim.”
Open the Dcim folder and create new folders within it. Create as many folders as necessary to
organize your images. Name the folders with a name like 100ABC_D where the first three
numbers range from 100 to 999 followed immediately by five letters. The five letters can be a
combination of upper or lower case letters from A to Z and an underbar. There can be no
space.
The camera will not recognize folder names such as “100ABC” (insufficient

cannot have the same three-digit number such as “100ABC_C” and “100ABC_D”
even if the letters are different.
It is recommended that you start numbering folders from “100.” If the last file
number inside the folder reaches 9999, create a new folder with the camera to
store subsequent images. If you create only one folder in the CF card and

∗ About Predictive AF
If the subject approaches or retreats from the camera at a constant rate, the camera tracks the
subject and predicts the focusing distance immediately before the picture is taken. This is for
obtaining correct focus at the moment of exposure.
With a manually selected AF point, the AF point will flash in red and focus track the subject.
When the AF point selection is automatic, the camera first uses the center AF point to focus. If
the subject later moves away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long as the

AF Sensitivity and the Lens’ Maximum Aperture
The EOS-1Ds’s AF points are all horizontal-line sensitive. However, bright lenses
with a large maximum aperture enable certain AF points to work as cross-type
sensors for higher AF precision.
(1) With lenses whose maximum aperture is f/2.8 or faster
(lower f/number), the AF points highlighted in the illustration
will be cross-type sensors sensitive to both vertical and
horizontal lines. The remaining 38 AF points will only be
horizontal-line sensitive. The cross-type sensor’s verticalline sensitivity is three times higher than the horizontal-line
sensitivity.
(2) With the following L-series lenses whose maximum
aperture is brighter than f/4 by lens only or with Extenders,
the center AF point will be a cross-type sensor for highprecision AF. The remaining 44 focusing points will only be
horizontal-line sensitive (except with EF 70-200mm f/2.8L
USM + Extender EF 1.4x).

However, do not autofocus with the other AF points because they may cause a
focusing error.

When Autofocus Fails (Manual Focusing)
Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the focus confirmation light blinks) with certain subjects
such as the following:
(a) Low-contrast subjects (blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.).
(b) Subjects in low light.
(c) Extremely backlit reflective subjects (car with a reflective body, etc.).
(d) Overlapping near and far objects (animal in a cage, 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.
2. Set the lens focus mode switch to < > (or < > on older lenses) and focus manually.
(→p.26)
If focus cannot be achieved with the AF-assist light of a Speedlite or ST-E2, select
the center AF point. An off-center AF point might not be able to achieve focus.

Flash Photography with Speedlite 550EX
With Speedlite 550EX, flash photography is easy as any AE mode, and you can use the
following features:
• E-TTL autoflash
With E-TTL autoflash (preflash evaluative metering),
optimum flash exposure is obtained for the subject in
focus. In the aperture-priority AE mode, a slow sync speed
is set automatically in low-light situations to obtain a
natural-looking, balanced exposure between the subject
and background.
• High-Speed Sync (FP Flash)
High-speed sync (FP or focal-plane flash) enables flash synchronization with all shutter
speeds from 30 sec. to 1/8000 sec.
• FE (Flash Exposure) Lock
FE lock obtains and locks the correct flash exposure for any part of the subject. This is the
flash equivalent of AE lock.
• Flash exposure compensation
Like normal exposure compensation, flash exposure compensation can be used to set the
flash output up to +/–3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
• FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)
As with AEB (autoexposure bracketing), flash exposures can be bracketed up to +/–3 stops
in 1/3-stop increments.
• E-TTL wireless autoflash with multiple Speedlites
E-TTL autoflash can also be implemented with multiple wireless Speedlites. All the features
listed above can be used, and no connections codes are required. Sophisticated lighting
effects can be obtained as easily as using a Speedlite directly attached to the camera.

Cleaning the CMOS Sensor
The CMOS sensor corresponds to the film in a film-based camera. If any dust or other foreign
matter adheres to the CMOS sensor, it may show up as a dark speck in the pictures you take.
To avoid this, follow the procedure below to clean the CMOS sensor. Note that the CMOS
sensor is a very delicate component. If possible, you should have it cleaned by a Canon
Service Center.
While you clean the CMOS, the camera’s power must remain on the whole time. To make sure
the power will not turn off while you clean the CMOS sensor, connect the camera to a power
outlet with the DC Coupler Kit or use the battery pack that has enough power. You will also
need a rubber blower, and the lens must be detached from the camera. (→p.26)

Basic Terminology
AE
Abbreviation for auto exposure. It is an automatic metering and exposure system that sets the
optimum exposure (shutter speed and/or aperture) based on the reading by the built-in
exposure meter.
AF
Abbreviation for auto focus. It enables the camera to focus the subject automatically.
CF (CompactFlash) card
CF card is the small, card-shaped storage media used to record images taken by the EOS1Ds.
ISO speed
This indicates the film’s sensitivity to light. It is expressed as a number following “ISO” such as
“ISO 200.” The higher the number, the higher the sensitivity to light. Digital cameras also use
the same ISO speed standard used by film-based cameras.
JPEG
Abbreviation for Joint Photographic Experts Group. It is an image file format with various
compression levels. The higher the compression rate, the lower the image quality, when the
file is expanded (restored).
RAW
This is an image file format that saves the image as is when captured by the camera. It is
geared for image processing with a personal computer.
The image quality is not affected when the raw image is compressed, saved, or decompressed. By using the dedicated software for image processing, the image can be optimally
enhanced for the specified purpose.
sRGB
Color matching standard jointly developed by Microsoft and Hewlett-Packard. Cameras,
monitors, applications, and printers which comply with this standard are able to reproduce
colors in the same way. (The “s” stands for standard.)
154
Basic Terminology
Aperture
The aperture value (f/number) indicates the size of the
aperture opening in the lens. It is equal to the focal length
devided by the aperture diameter. It adjusts the amount of
light striking the CMOS sensor. The aperture value is
displayed on the camera’s top LCD panel and in the
viewfinder. It can range anywhere from 1.0 to 91,
depending on the lens attached to the camera.
Shutter speed
The shutter speed is the length of time the camera’s shutter opens to expose the CMOS
sensor to the light coming through the lens. It adjusts the amount of light striking the CMOS
sensor.
Format
When you format a CF card, it prepares the card to store data in it. It also erases any data
stored on the card. Before formatting a CF card, be sure it has no valuable data.
File names
A file name is assigned automatically to each image
(Example) 5F9Z0001.JPG
you capture. The file name consists of a unique, fourcharacter camera code preset at the factory and a file

number assigned automatically. The camera code
File number
cannot be changed. The file number is assigned
Camera code
automatically according to the numbering method you
selected (→p.56).
The extension will be “JPG” for JPEG images or “TIF” for RAW images. For sound files, the
extension will be “WAV.”
Firmware
This is software containing various camera control instructions. The EOS-1Ds uses the
firmware for shooting and image processing. Although the firmware is preinstalled in the
camera, you can later install the latest version of the firmware when it becomes available.

155
Basic Terminology
Depth of field
This is the range where acceptable focus can be achieved in front of and behind the point of
the subject. The smaller the aperture (the higher the f/number), the deeper the depth of field.
And the larger the aperture (the lower the f/number), the shallower the depth of field.
The depth of field is affected as described below:
(1) A smaller aperture (a higher f/number) increases the depth of field.
For example, stopping down to f/8 obtains a deeper depth of field than f/4.5.
(2) A lens with a shorter focal length increases the depth of field.
A wide-angle lens obtains a deeper depth of field than a telephoto lens.
(3) A longer distance between the camera and subject increases the depth of field.
(4) The depth of field behind the point of optimum focus (2) is longer than the depth of field in
front of the point of optimum focus (1).
Depth of field
Point of optimum focus
1
Aperture set to f/22.
2
Aperture set to f/2.
Exposure
Exposure occurs when the film (or the image sensor in a digital camera) is exposed to light.
Correct exposure is obtained when the film or the image sensor is exposed to a proper amount
of light in accordance with its sensitivity to light. The correct exposure is adjusted with the
camera's shutter speed and aperture.

Program Line Description
The bottom horizontal axis represents the shutter speed and the right vertical axis represents
the aperture. On the left edge and top edge of the graph, the Exposure Value (EV) is indicated
for respective shutter speed and aperture combination set by the Program AE mode and
denoted by the colored program line.
Example: When the subject brightness is EV 12, the point where the diagonal line from EV 12
(on the top edge of the graph) intersects the program line indicates the corresponding shutter
speed (1/320 sec.) and aperture (f/3.5) which the program sets automatically.

Shutter Speed and Aperture Readouts
Shutter speed readout
The shutter speed is normally displayed in 1/3-stop increments. Numbers from “4” to “8000”
denote the denominator of the shutter speed fraction. For example, “125” is 1/125 sec. Also,
0"3 is 0.3 sec., and 15" is 15 sec.
Aperture readout
The aperture is normally displayed in 1/3-stop increments. The higher the number, the smaller
the aperture opening. The range of aperture numbers (f/numbers) displayed depends on the
lens used.
