ENGLISH

Introduction

The EOS 70D (W/N) is a digital single-lens reflex camera featuring a fine-detail CMOS sensor with approx. 20.2 effective megapixels, DIGIC

5+, high-precision and high-speed 19-point AF (all cross-type focusing), approx. 7.0 fps continuous shooting, Live View shooting, Full High-

Definition (Full HD) movie shooting, and Wi-Fi function*.

* The EOS 70D (N) does not have the Wi-Fi function.

Before Starting to Shoot, Be Sure to Read the Following

To avoid botched pictures and accidents, first read the “Safety

Precautions” (p.160-162) and “Handling Precautions” (p.14-15).

Refer to This Manual while Using the Camera to Further

Familiarize Yourself with the Camera

While reading this manual, take a few test shots and see how they come out. You can then better understand the camera.

Testing the Camera Before Use and Liability

After shooting, play images back and check whether they have been properly recorded. If the camera or memory card is faulty and the images cannot be recorded or downloaded to a computer, Canon cannot be held liable for any loss or inconvenience caused.

Copyrights

Copyright laws in your country may prohibit the use of your recorded images or copyrighted music and images with music in the memory card for anything other than private enjoyment. Also be aware that certain public performances, exhibitions, etc., may prohibit photography even for private enjoyment.

2

Compatible Cards

The camera can use the following cards regardless of capacity:

• SD memory cards

• SDHC memory cards*

• SDXC memory cards*

* UHS-I cards supported.

Cards that Can Record Movies

When shooting movies, use a large-capacity card with a fast reading/ writing speed as shown in the table.

Compression Method (p.137)

IPB

ALL-I (I-only)

Card

6 MB/sec. or faster

20 MB/sec. or faster

If you use a slow-writing card when shooting movies, the movie may not be recorded properly. Also, if you play back a movie on a card with a slow reading speed, the movie may not play back properly.

If you want to shoot still photos while shooting a movie, you will need an even faster card.

To check the card’s reading/writing speed, refer to the card manufacturer’s website.

In this manual, “card” refers to SD memory cards, SDHC memory cards, and SDXC memory cards.

* The camera does not come with a card for recording images/

movies. Please purchase it separately.

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 the nearest Canon

Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry and clean 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.

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 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.

14

Handling Precautions

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.

If you use continuous shooting, Live View shooting, or movie shooting for a prolonged period, the camera may become hot. This is not a malfunction.

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.

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

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.

It takes approx. 2.5 hours to fully recharge a completely exhausted battery at room temperature (23°C / 73°F). The time required to recharge the battery will vary greatly depending on the ambient temperature and the battery’s remaining capacity.

For safety reasons, recharging in low temperatures (5°C - 10°C /

41°F - 50°F) will take longer (up to approx. 4 hours).

24

Charging the Battery

Tips for Using the Battery and Charger

Upon purchase, the battery is not fully charged.

Charge the battery before use.

Recharge the battery on the day before or on the day it is to be used.

Even during storage, a charged battery will gradually drain and lose its capacity.

After recharging the battery, detach it and disconnect 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 sticker on the battery. If the battery is exhausted, attach the cover in the opposite orientation.

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 when it is fully charged may 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 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 reached the end of its service life.

Check the battery’s recharge performance and purchase a new battery.

After disconnecting the charger’s power plug, do not touch the prongs for approx. 10 sec.

If the battery’s remaining capacity is 94% or higher, the battery will not be recharged.

The charger cannot charge any battery other than Battery Pack LP-E6/LP-E6N.

Set the lens focus mode switch to

<AF>.

<AF> stands for autofocus.

If it is set to <MF> (manual focus), autofocus will not operate.

4

Remove the front lens cap.

Minimizing Dust

When changing lenses, do it quickly in a place with minimal dust.

When storing the camera without a lens attached, be sure to attach the body cap to the camera.

Remove dust on the body cap before attaching it.

36

Attaching and Detaching a Lens

Zooming

Turn the zoom ring on the lens with your fingers.

If you want to zoom, do it before focusing. Turning the zoom ring after achieving focus may throw off the focus.

Detaching the Lens

While pressing the lens release button, turn the lens as shown by the arrows.

Turn the lens until it stops, then detach it.

Attach the rear lens cap to the detached lens.

To owners of the EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS lens:

You can prevent the lens from extending out while you are carrying it around. Set the zoom ring to the 18mm wide-angle end, then slide the zoom ring lock lever to <LOCK>. The zoom ring can be locked only at the wide-angle end.

Do not look at the sun directly through any lens. Doing so may cause loss of vision.

When attaching or detaching a lens, set the camera’s power switch to

<2>.

If the front part (focusing ring) of the lens rotates during autofocusing, do not touch the rotating part.

37

Attaching and Detaching a Lens

Image Conversion Factor

Since the image sensor size is smaller than the 35mm film format, it will look like the lens focal length is increased by approx. 1.6x.

Image sensor size (Approx.)

(22.5 x 15.0 mm / 0.88 x 0.59 in.)

35mm image size

(36 x 24 mm / 1.42 x 0.94 in.)

Attaching a Lens Hood

A lens hood can block unwanted light and diminish rain, snow, dust etc. adhering to the front of the lens. Before storing the lens in a bag, etc., you can attach the hood in reverse.

If the Lens and the Lens Hood Have a Mount Index

1

Align the red dots on the hood and lens edges, then turn the hood as shown by the arrow.

2

Turn the hood as shown in the illustration.

Turn the hood clockwise until it attaches securely.

38

If you do not attach the hood properly, it may obstruct the image’s periphery, making it look dark.

When attaching or detaching the hood, grasp the base of the hood when turning it. Grasping the hood’s edges when turning it may deform the hood, resulting in failure to turn.

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 EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM lens as an example.

* IS stands for Image Stabilizer.

1

Set the IS switch to <1>.

Also set the camera’s power switch to

<1>.

2

Press the shutter button halfway.

X The Image Stabilizer will operate.

3

Take the picture.

When the picture looks steady in the viewfinder, press the shutter button completely to take the picture.

The Image Stabilizer cannot correct “subject blur”, when the subject moves at the time of exposure.

For bulb exposures, set the IS switch to <2>. If <1> is set, Image

Stabilizer misoperation may occur.

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

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.

Some IS lenses enable you to switch the IS mode manually to suit the shooting conditions. However, the following lenses switch the IS mode automatically:

• EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM • EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

• EF-S 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 IS

39

Basic Operation

Adjusting the Viewfinder Clarity

Turn the dioptric adjustment knob.

Turn the knob left or right so that the

AF points in the viewfinder look sharp.

If the knob is difficult to turn, remove the eyecup.

Disabling Flash

<7> is a fully-automatic shooting mode that does not use flash. It is useful in museums, aquariums, and other places where flash is prohibited. This mode is also effective for capturing the particular ambience of a scene, such as candlelight scenes.

Shooting Tips

Prevent camera shake if the numeric display in the viewfinder blinks.

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. When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to reduce blur caused by camera shake even while handholding the camera.

Take portraits without flash.

In low-light conditions, tell the subject to keep still until the picture is taken. Any movement by the subject during shooting may result in the subject being blurred in the picture.

Shooting Portraits

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

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 against an uncluttered 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. For close-ups of the face, focus on the eyes.

76

The default setting is <i> (low-speed continuous shooting). If you hold down the shutter button, you can shoot continuously to capture subtle changes in the subject’s pose and facial expression (max. approx. 3.0 shots/ sec.).

3

Shooting Landscapes

Use the <3> (Landscape) mode for wide scenery or to have everything in focus from near to far. For vivid blues and greens, and very sharp and crisp images.

Shooting Tips

With a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end.

When using the wide-angle end of a zoom lens, objects near and far will be in focus better than at the telephoto end. It also adds breadth to landscapes.

Shooting night scenes.

The <3> mode is also good for night scenes because it disables the built-in flash. When shooting night scenes, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.

The built-in flash will not fire even in backlit or low-light conditions.

If you are using an external Speedlite, the Speedlite will fire.

77

4

Shooting Close-ups

When you want to shoot 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).

Shooting Tips

Use a simple background.

A simple background makes small objects such as flowers 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 <MACRO 0.39m/1.3ft> on them. The lens minimum focusing distance is measured from the <V> (focal plane) mark on the top of the camera to the subject. If you are too close to the subject, the focus confirmation light <o> will blink.

If you use flash and the bottom of the picture looks unusually dark, 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.

78

5

Shooting Moving Subjects

Use the <5> (Sports) mode to shoot a moving subject, such as a running child or a moving vehicle.

Shooting Tips

Use a telephoto lens.

The use of a telephoto lens is recommended for shooting from a distance.

Track the subject with the Area AF frame.

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

The default setting is <o> (high-speed continuous shooting).

When you want to take the picture, press the shutter button completely. If you hold down the shutter button, you will be able to maintain autofocusing during continuous shooting of the subject’s movement (max. approx. 7.0 shots per sec.).

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.

If you are using an external Speedlite, the Speedlite will fire.

79

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. Using a tripod is recommended.

Shooting Tips

Use a wide-angle lens and a tripod.

When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to obtain a wide night view. Also, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.

Check the subject’s brightness.

Under low light, the built-in flash will fire automatically to obtain a good exposure of the subject.

It is recommended to play back the image after the shooting to check the image brightness. If the subject looks dark, move nearer and shoot again.

Also shoot in other shooting modes.

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

80

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.

See the cautions on page 83.

F

Shooting Night Scenes (Handheld)

Using a tripod for shooting a night scene yields the best results.

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.

While shooting, hold the camera firmly and steadily. In this mode, four shots are aligned and merged into a single image. However, if there is significant misalignment in any of the four shots due to camera shake, they may not align properly in the final image.

For shots of people, turn on the flash.

If you will include people in the picture, press the <Q> button and set <D> (Flash on). To take a nice portrait, the first shot will use flash. Tell the subject not to move until all four continuous shots are taken.

See the cautions on page 83.

81

G

Shooting Backlit Scenes

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

<G> (HDR Backlight Control) mode. When you take one picture in this mode, three continuous shots are taken at different exposures. This results in one image, with a wide tonal range, that has minimized the blocked-up shadows caused by backlighting.

Shooting Tips

Hold the camera firmly.

While shooting, hold the camera firmly and steadily. In this mode, three shots are aligned and merged into a single image. However, if there is significant misalignment in any of the three shots due to camera shake, they may not align properly in the final image.

Flash shooting is not possible. In low light, the AF-assist beam may be emitted (p.90).

See the cautions on pages 83-84.

82

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range.

Cautions for <6> Night Portrait and <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, set the lens’ focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.

Cautions for <F> Handheld Night Scene and <G> HDR Backlight Control

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

You cannot select RAW or RAW+JPEG. If RAW is set, the image will be recorded in the 73 quality. 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 may leave afterimages or the surrounding area of the subject may become dark.

The image alignment may not work properly with repetitive patterns

(lattice, stripes, etc.), flat or single-tone images, or images significantly misaligned due to 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.

Cautions for <6> Night Portrait

During Live View shooting, it may be difficult to focus when the face of the subject looks dark. In such a case, set the lens’ focus mode switch to

<MF> and focus manually.

Cautions for <F> Handheld Night Scene

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 to shoot a night scene with few lights, the shots may not align correctly. This can result in a blurry photo.

If you use flash and the human subject is close to the background that is also illuminated by the flash, the shots may not align correctly. This can result in a blurry photo. Unnatural shadows and unsuitable colors may also appear.

External Speedlite 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 requiring manual flash coverage setting, set the flash head to the wide (normal) position.

Using AF to Focus (AF Method)

Changes in AF Speed Depending On the AF Control Method

If the AF method is set to [u+Tracking], [FlexiZone - Multi], or [FlexiZone

- Single] for Live View shooting or movie shooting, the AF control method

(phase-difference detection with the image sensor or contrast detection) will switch automatically depending on the lens used and functions selected, such as movie digital zoom or magnified view. This can greatly affect the AF speed and the camera may take a longer time to focus (phase-difference detection generally allows faster AF focusing). For details, refer to Canon’s website.

Selecting the AF Method

You can select an AF method to suit the shooting conditions and your subject. The following AF methods are provided: [u(face)+Tracking],

[FlexiZone - Multi] (p.125), [FlexiZone - Single] (p.126), and [Quick

mode] (p.127).

If you want to achieve precise focus, set the lens focus mode switch to

Safety Precautions

The following precautions are provided to prevent harm or injury to yourself and others. Make sure to thoroughly understand and follow these precautions before using the product.

If you experience any malfunctions, problems, or damage to the product, contact the nearest Canon Service Center or the dealer from whom you purchased the product.

Warnings:

Follow the warnings below. Otherwise, death or serious injuries may result.

To prevent fire, excessive heat, chemical leakage, explosions, and electrical shock, follow the safeguards below:

• Do not use any batteries, power sources, or accessories not specified in the

Instruction Manual. Do not use any home-made or modified batteries.

• Do not short-circuit, disassemble, or modify the battery. Do not apply heat or solder to the battery. Do not expose the battery to fire or water. Do not subject the battery to strong physical shock.

• Do not insert the battery’s plus and minus ends incorrectly.

• Do not recharge the battery in temperatures outside the allowable ambient temperature range. Also, do not exceed the recharging time indicated in the

Instruction Manual.

• Do not insert any foreign metallic objects into the electrical contacts of the camera, accessories, connecting cables, etc.

When disposing of a battery, insulate the electrical contacts with tape to prevent contact with other metallic objects or batteries. This is to prevent a fire or an explosion.

If excessive heat, smoke, or fumes are emitted when recharging the battery, immediately unplug the battery charger from the power outlet to stop recharging.

Otherwise, it may cause a fire, heat damage or electrical shock.

If the battery leaks, changes color, deforms, or emits smoke or fumes, remove it immediately. Be careful not to get burned in the process. It may cause a fire, electrical shock or skin burn if you keep using it.

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.

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 hold the camera in the same position for long periods of time. Even if the camera does not feel too hot, prolonged contact with the same body part may cause skin redness, blistering or low-temperature contact burns. Using a tripod is recommended for people with circulation problems or very sensitive skin, or when using the camera in very hot places.

Do not fire the flash at anyone driving a car or other vehicle. 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/3.3 feet away.

Safety Precautions

When the camera or accessories are not in use, make sure to remove the battery and disconnect the power plug from the equipment before storing. This is to prevent electrical shock, excessive heat, fire, or corrosion.

Do not use the equipment where there is flammable gas. This is to prevent an explosion or a fire.

If you drop the equipment and the casing breaks open to expose the internal parts, do not touch the internal parts. There is a possibility of an 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 equipment out of the reach of children and infants, including when in use. Straps or cords may accidentally cause choking, electrical shock, or injury. Choking or injury may also occur if a child or infant accidentally swallows a camera part or accessory. If a child or infant swallows a part or accessory, consult a physician immediately.

Do not store the equipment in dusty or humid places. Likewise, store the battery with its protective cover attached to prevent short-circuit. This is to prevent a fire, excessive heat, electrical shock, or burn.

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 a 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 wire is broken or insulation is damaged.

Unplug the power plug periodically and clean off the dust around the power outlet with a dry cloth. If the surrounding is dusty, humid, or oily, the dust on the power outlet may become moist and short-circuit the outlet, causing a fire.

Do not connect the battery directly to an electrical outlet or a car’s cigarette lighter outlet. The battery may leak, generate excessive heat or explode, causing a fire, burns or injuries.

A thorough explanation of how to use the product by an adult is required when the product is used by children. Supervise children while they are using the product.

Incorrect usage may result in electrical shock or injury.

Do not leave a lens or lens-attached camera in 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 product with a cloth. Doing so may trap heat within and cause the casing to deform or catch fire.

Be careful not to get the camera wet. If you drop the product in the water or if water or metal get inside the product, promptly remove the battery. This is to prevent a fire and an electrical shock.

Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the product.

Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard.
