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.
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 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.
14
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
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
may 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, or vibration.
Do not touch the card’s electronic contacts with your fingers or anything
metallic.
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, attach the lens
caps and put down the lens with the rear end up to avoid
scratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.
Contacts
Cautions During 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.

It takes approx. 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 the battery’s charge level.
For safety reasons, recharging in low temperatures (5°C - 10°C /
41°F - 50°F) will take longer (up to 4 hours).
28
Charging the Battery
Tips for Using the Battery and Charger
Upon purchase, the battery is not fully charged.
Recharge the battery before using.
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 after it is fully charged can lower the battery’s performance.
The battery charger can also be used in foreign countries.
The battery charger is compatible with a 100 V AC to 240 V AC 50/60 Hz
power source. If 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 (p.344) and purchase a new battery.
After disconnecting the charger’s power plug, do not touch the prongs for
at least 10 sec.
If the battery’s remaining capacity (p.344) is 94% or higher, the battery
will not be recharged.
The charger cannot charge any battery other than Battery Pack LP-E6/
LP-E6N.
29
Installing and Removing the Battery
Load a fully-charged Battery Pack LP-E6 (or LP-E6N) into the camera.

3 TakeWhen
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 instead,
Image 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 EF24105mm f/4L IS USM lens for panned shots.
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.
42
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 (p.187).
If the camera’s dioptric adjustment still cannot provide a sharp viewfinder
image, using Dioptric Adjustment Lens Eg (sold separately) is recommended.
Holding the Camera
To obtain sharp images, hold the camera still to minimize camera
shake.

3 Formatting the Card
If the card is new or was previously formatted by another camera or
computer, format the card with the camera.
When the card is formatted, all images and data in the card will
be erased. As even protected images will be erased, make
sure there is nothing you need to keep. If necessary, transfer
the images to a personal computer, etc., before formatting the
card.

X When the formatting is completed,
the menu will reappear.
When [g] is selected, low-level
formatting is possible (p.54).
For low-level formatting, press the
<L> button to append [Low level
format] with a <X> checkmark, then
select [OK].
53
Before You Start
Format the card in the following cases:
The card is new.
The card was formatted by a different camera or a computer.
The card is full with images or data.
A card-related error is displayed (p.377).
About Low-level Formatting
Do low-level formatting if the SD card’s recording or reading speed seems
slow or if you want to totally erase all data in the card.
Since low-level formatting will erase all recordable sectors in the SD card,
the formatting will take slightly longer than normal formatting.
You can stop the low-level formatting by selecting [Cancel]. Even in this
case, normal formatting will be completed and you can use the SD card as
usual.
Cards with 128 GB or lower capacity will be formatted in FAT format.
Cards with a capacity higher than 128 GB will be formatted in exFAT
format. If you format a card with a capacity over 128 GB with this camera
and then insert it into another camera, an error may be displayed and the
card may become impossible to use. Depending on the personal
computer’s OS or card reader, it may not recognize a card formatted in
exFAT format.
When the card is formatted or data is erased, only the file management
information is changed. The actual data is not completely erased. Be
aware of this when selling or discarding the card. When discarding the
card, execute low-level formatting or destroy the card physically to
prevent the data from being leaked.
Before using a new Eye-Fi card, the software in the card must be
installed in your computer. Then format the card with the camera.
The card capacity displayed on the card format screen may be smaller
than the capacity indicated on the card.
This device incorporates exFAT technology licensed from Microsoft.

Depending on the scene, position the subject toward the left or right to
create a balanced background and good perspective.
In the <A> mode, while you press the shutter button halfway to focus
a still subject, the focus will be locked. You can then recompose the
shot and press the shutter button completely to take the picture. This is
called “focus lock”.
Shooting a Moving Subject
In the <A> mode, if the subject moves (distance to camera changes)
while or after you focus, AI Servo AF will take effect to focus the subject
continuously. As long as the Area AF frame covers the subject while
you press the shutter button halfway, the focusing will be continuous.

One-Shot AF for Still Subjects
Suited for still subjects. When you press the shutter button
halfway, the camera will focus only once.
When focus is achieved, the AF point that achieved focus will be
displayed, and the focus confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder will
also light up.
With evaluative metering, the exposure setting will be set at the
same time focus is achieved.
While you hold down the shutter button halfway, the focus will be
locked. You can then recompose the shot if desired.
70
f: Selecting the AF ModeN
If focus cannot be achieved, the focus confirmation light <o> and AF
status indicator <e> in the viewfinder will blink. If this occurs, the
picture cannot be taken even if the shutter button is pressed completely.
Recompose the picture and try to focus again. Or see “When Autofocus
Fails” (p.112).
If [z1: Beep] is set to [Disable], the beeper will not sound when focus
is achieved.
After achieving focus with One-Shot AF, you can lock the focus on a subject
and recompose the shot. This is called “focus lock”. This is convenient when
you want to focus a subject not covered by the Area AF frame.
AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
This AF mode is suited 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.
When the AF area selection mode is set to 61-point automatic selection (p.72),
the camera first uses the manually-selected AF point to focus. During
autofocusing, if the subject moves away from the manually-selected AF point,
focus tracking continues as long as the subject is covered by the Area AF frame.
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 up.
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 a still subject starts moving.
After the subject is focused in 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 up. Note that focus will not be locked in
this case.
71
S Selecting the AF AreaN
61 AF points are provided for AF. You can select the AF point(s) suiting
the scene or subject.
Depending on the lens attached to the camera, the number of
usable AF points and AF point patterns will differ. For details,
see “Lenses and Usable AF Points” on page 79.

In the Zone AF mode, turning the
<6> or <5> dial will change the
Zone in a looping sequence.
AF Point Display Indications
Pressing the <S> button lights up the AF points that are cross-type AF
points for high-precision autofocusing. The blinking AF points are
horizontal-line sensitive. For details, see page 78.
When you press the <S> button, the LCD panel displays the following:
• 61-point automatic selection AF and Zone AF (manual selection of
zone):
AF
• Single-point Spot AF and Single-point AF: SEL
(Center)/SEL AF
(Off-center)
With [25: Manual AF pt. selec. pattern], you can set either [Stops at
AF area edges] or [Continuous] (p.104).
74
AF Area Selection ModesN
Single-point Spot AF (Manual selection)
Although this is the same as single-point AF, the
selected AF point <O> covers a smaller area to
focus. Effective for pinpoint focusing of
overlapping subjects such as an animal in a cage.
Since Spot AF covers a very small area, focusing
may be difficult during hand-held shooting or for a
moving subject.
Single-point AF (Manual selection)
Select one AF point <S> to be used for focusing.
AF point expansion (Manual selection
)
The manually-selected AF point <S> and adjacent AF points <w>
(above, below, on the left and on the right) are used to focus. Effective
when it is difficult to track a moving subject with just one AF point.
With AI Servo AF, the manually-selected AF point <S> must focustrack the subject first. However, it is easier to focus the target subject
than with Zone AF.
With One-Shot AF, when focus is achieved with an expanded AF point,
the expanded AF point <S> will also be displayed along with the
manually-selected AF point <S>.
75
AF Area Selection ModesN
AF point expansion (Manual selection, surrounding points)
The manually-selected AF point <S> and adjacent AF points <w> are
used to focus. The AF point expansion is larger than with AF point
expansion (Manual selection ), so the focusing is executed over a
wider area. Effective when it is difficult to track a moving subject with
just one AF point.
AI Servo AF and One-Shot AF work in the same way as with AF point
expansion (Manual selection ) mode (p.75).
Zone AF (Manual selection of zone)
The 61 AF points are divided into nine zones for focusing. All the AF
points in the selected zone are used for the automatic selection of the
point of focus. It makes achieving focus easier than with single-point AF
or AF point expansion and it is effective for moving subjects.
However, since it is inclined to focus the nearest subject, focusing a
specific target is harder than with single-point AF or AF point expansion.
The AF point(s) achieving focus is displayed as <S>.
76
AF Area Selection ModesN
61-point automatic selection AF
All the AF points are used to focus. This mode is set automatically in the
<A> mode.
With One-Shot AF, pressing the shutter button
halfway will display the AF point(s) <S> that
achieved focus. If multiple AF points are displayed,
it means they all have achieved focus. This mode
tends to focus the nearest subject.
With AI Servo AF, the manually-selected (p.74) AF
point <S> is used first to achieve focus. The AF
point(s) achieving focus is displayed as <S>.
With 61-point automatic selection AF or Zone AF, the active AF point
<S> will keep switching to track the subject in AI Servo AF mode.
However, under certain shooting conditions (such as when the subject is
small), it may not be able to track the subject. Also, in low temperatures,
the tracking response is slower.
With Single-point Spot AF, focusing with the Speedlite’s AF-assist beam
may be difficult.
If you are using a peripheral AF point or a wide-angle lens, achieving
focus with the EOS-dedicated Speedlite’s AF-assist beam may be
difficult. In such a case, select an AF point close to the center.
When the AF point(s) light up, part or all of the viewfinder may light up in
red. This is a characteristic of AF point display (using liquid crystal).
In low temperatures, the AF point’s blinking (p.74) may be difficult to see.
This is a characteristic of AF point display (using liquid crystal).
If you set [24: Orientation linked AF point] to [

AF points], you can set the AF area selection mode and manuallyselected AF point (or Zone) separately for vertical and horizontal
shooting (p.103).
With [24: Selectable AF point], you can change the number of

About the AF Sensor
The camera’s AF sensor has 61 AF points. The illustration below shows
the AF sensor pattern corresponding to each AF point. With f/2.8 or
larger maximum aperture lenses, high-precision AF is possible at the
viewfinder center.
Depending on the lens attached to the camera, the number of
usable AF points and AF pattern will differ. For details, see pages
79 to 85.

These focusing sensors are geared to obtain higher precision
focusing with f/2.8 or larger maximum aperture lenses. A diagonal
cross pattern makes it easier to focus subjects that may be difficult
to focus. They cover the five vertical AF points at the center.
These focusing sensors are geared to obtain high-precision
focusing with f/4 or larger maximum aperture lenses. Since
they have a horizontal pattern, they can detect vertical
lines.
These focusing sensors are geared for f/5.6 or larger
maximum aperture lenses. Since they have a horizontal
pattern, it can detect vertical lines. They cover the three
columns of AF points at the viewfinder’s center. The center
AF point, and the AF points above and under the center AF
point are geared for f/8 or larger maximum aperture.
These focusing sensors are geared for f/5.6 or larger
maximum aperture lenses. They can detect horizontal lines
and cover all 61 AF points in a vertical pattern. The center
AF point, and the AF points on the left and right of the center
AF point are geared for f/8 or larger maximum aperture.

Lenses and Usable AF Points
Although the camera has 61 AF points, the number of usable AF
points and focusing patterns will differ depending on the lens. The
lenses are thereby classified into nine groups from A to I. Check
which group your lens belongs to.
When using a lens in Groups F to H, fewer AF points will be usable.
When you press the <S> button, the AF points indicated by the mark
will blink. (The / / AF points will stay lit.)
When using a lens marked with “*”, see page 86.
Regarding new lenses marketed after the EOS 5D Mark III, check
Canon’s Web site to see which group they belong to.
Some lenses may not be available in certain countries or regions.

3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)N
Case 1: Versatile multi purpose setting
Default settings
• Tracking sensitivity: [0]
• Accel./decel. tracking: [0]
• AF pt auto switching: [0]
Standard setting suited for any moving
subject. Works with many subjects and
scenes.
Select [Case 2] to [Case 6] in the
following cases: when obstacles enter
AF points, when the subject tends to
stray from AF points, when you want to
focus a subject that suddenly appears, or
when the subject moves dramatically up,
down, left, or right.
Case 2: Continue to track subject, ignoring possible obstacles
The camera will try to continue focusing
the subject even if an obstacle enters the
AF points or if the subject strays from the
AF points. Effective when there may be
an obstacle blocking the subject or when
you do not want to focus the
background.
Default settings
• Tracking sensitivity:
[Locked on: -1]
• Accel./decel. tracking: [0]
• AF pt auto switching: [0]
If an obstacle gets in the way or if the subject moves away from the AF
points for a prolonged period and the default setting is unable to track the
target subject, setting [Tracking sensitivity] to [Locked on: -2] may give
better results (p.92).
88
3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)N
Case 3: Instantly focus on subjects suddenly entering AF points
Default settings
• Tracking sensitivity:
[Responsive: +1]
• Accel./decel. tracking: [+1]
• AF pt auto switching: [0]
Once an AF point starts tracking the
subject, this setting enables the camera
to focus consecutive subjects at different
distances. If a new subject appears in
front of the target subject, the camera will
start focusing the new subject. Also
effective when you want to always focus
on the closest subject.
If you want to quickly focus a subject appearing suddenly, setting [Tracking
sensitivity] to [+2] may give better results (p.92).
Case 4: For subjects that accelerate or decelerate quickly
Geared for tracking moving subjects
whose speed can change dramatically
and suddenly.
Effective for subjects having sudden
movements, sudden acceleration/
deceleration, or sudden stops.
Default settings
• Tracking sensitivity: [0]
• Accel./decel. tracking: [+1]
• AF pt auto switching: [0]
If the moving subject suddenly and greatly changes speed, setting [Accel./
decel. tracking] to [+2] may give better results (p.93).
89
3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)N
Case 5: For erratic subjects moving quickly in any direction
Default settings
• Tracking sensitivity: [0]
• Accel./decel. tracking: [0]
• AF pt auto switching: [+1]
Even if the target subject moves
dramatically up, down, left, or right, the
AF point will switch automatically to
focus-track the subject. Effective for
shooting subjects that move dramatically
up, down, left, or right. This setting takes
effect when the following AF area
selection modes are set: AF point
expansion (Manual selection
), AF
point expansion (Manual selection,
surrounding points), Zone AF (Manual
selection), 61-point automatic selection
AF.
This setting is not available with the
Single-point Spot AF (Manual
selection) and Single-point AF
(Manual selection) modes.
If the subject moves erratically up, down, left, or right, setting [AF pt auto
switching] to [+2] may give better results (p.94).

3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)N
Case 6: For subjects that change speed and move erratically
Default settings
• Tracking sensitivity: [0]
• Accel./decel. tracking: [+1]
• AF pt auto switching: [+1]
Geared for tracking moving subjects
whose speed can change dramatically
and suddenly. Also, if the target subject
moves dramatically up, down, left or right
and it is difficult to focus, the AF point
switches automatically to track the
subject.
This setting takes effect when the
following AF area selection modes are
set: AF point expansion (Manual
selection
), AF point expansion
(Manual selection, surrounding points),
Zone AF (Manual selection), 61-point
automatic selection AF.
This setting is not available with the
Single-point Spot AF (Manual
selection) and Single-point AF
(Manual selection) modes.
If the moving subject suddenly and greatly changes speed, setting
[Accel./decel. tracking] to [+2] may give better results (p.93).
If the subject moves erratically up, down, left, or right, setting [AF pt auto
switching] to [+2] may give better results (p.94).

3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)N
About the Parameters
Tracking sensitivity
Sets the subject-tracking sensitivity
during AI Servo AF when an obstacle
enters the AF points or when the AF
points stray from the subject.
[0]
Standard setting suited for most moving subjects.
[Locked on: -2 / Locked on: -1]
The camera will try to continue focusing the subject even if an
obstacle enters the AF points or if the subject strays from the AF
points. The -2 setting makes the camera track the target subject
longer than with the -1 setting.
However, if the camera focuses the wrong subject, it may take slightly
longer to switch and focus the target subject.
[Responsive: +2 / Responsive:+1]
Once an AF point tracks a subject, the camera can focus consecutive
subjects at different distances. Also effective when you want to
always focus on the closest subject. The +2 setting makes it quicker
to focus the next consecutive subject than with +1.
However, the camera will be more prone to focus on the wrong
subject.
[Tracking sensitivity] is the feature named [AI Servo tracking sensitivity]
in the EOS-1D Mark III/IV, EOS-1Ds Mark III, and EOS 7D.
92
3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)N
Accel./decel. tracking
This sets the tracking sensitivity for
moving subjects whose speed can
suddenly change dramatically by starting
or stopping suddenly, etc.
[0]
Suited for subjects that move at a fixed speed.
[+2 / +1]
Effective for subjects having sudden movements, sudden
acceleration/deceleration, or sudden stops. Even if the moving
subject’s speed suddenly changes dramatically, the camera
continues to focus the target subject. For example, for an
approaching subject, the camera becomes less prone to focus
behind it, which would result in a blurred subject. For a subject
stopping suddenly, the camera becomes less prone to focus in front
of it. Setting +2 can track dramatic changes in the moving subject’s
speed better than with +1.
However, since the camera will be sensitive to even slight
movements of the subject, the focusing may be unstable
momentarily.
93
3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)N
AF pt auto switching
This sets the switching sensitivity of the
AF points as they track the subject
moving dramatically up, down, left, or
right.
This setting takes effect in the following
AF area selection modes: AF point
expansion (Manual selection

[+2 / +1]
Even if the target subject moves dramatically up, down, left, or right
and moves away from the AF point, the AF point switches to another
one to continue focusing the subject. The camera switches to the AF
point deemed most likely to focus the subject based on the subject’s
continual movement, contrast, etc. Setting +2 makes the camera
more prone to switch the AF point than with +1.
However, with a wide-angle lens having a wide depth of field or if the
subject is too small in the frame, the camera may focus with the
wrong AF point.

The external Speedlite emits the AFassist beam when necessary.
OFF: Disable
The external Speedlite will not emit the
AF-assist beam. This prevents the AFassist beam from disturbing others.
IR: IR AF assist beam only
Among external Speedlites, only models with an infrared AF-assist
beam will be able to emit the beam. Set this if you do not want the AF
assist to be emitted as small flashes.
If the external Speedlite’s Custom Function [AF-assist beam firing] is set to

Lens drive when AF impossible
If focus cannot be achieved with autofocus, you can have the camera
keep searching for the correct focus or have it stop searching.
ON: Continue focus search
If focus cannot be achieved with
autofocus, the lens is driven to search for
the correct focus.
OFF: Stop focus search
If autofocus starts and the focus is far off
or if focus cannot be achieved, the lens
drive stops. This prevents the lens from
becoming grossly out of focus due to
focus searching.
Super telephoto lenses can become grossly out of focus during continuous
focus search, taking more time to achieve focus the next time. Therefore,
setting [Stop focus search] is recommended for super telephoto lenses.
Selectable AF point
You can change the number of manually selectable AF points. In the
case of automatic AF point selection, all 61 AF points will remain active
regardless of this setting.
: 61 points
All 61 AF points will be manually
selectable.
: Only cross-type AF points
Only cross-type AF points will be
manually selectable. The number of
selectable cross-type AF points will differ
depending on the lens.

Orientation linked AF point
You can set the AF area selection mode and manually-selected AF
point separately for vertical shooting and horizontal shooting.
: Same for both vert/horiz
The same AF area selection mode and
manually-selected AF point (or Zone) are
used for both vertical shooting and
horizontal shooting.
: Select separate AF points
The AF area selection mode and manually-selected AF point (or Zone)
can be set separately for each camera orientation (1. Horizontal, 2.
Vertical with the camera grip at the top, 3. Vertical with the camera grip
at the bottom). Convenient when, for instance, you want to keep using
the right AF point during all camera orientations.
When you manually select the AF area selection mode and AF point (or
Zone with Zone AF) for each of the three camera orientations, they will
be set for the respective orientation. Whenever you change the camera
orientation, the camera will switch to the AF area selection mode and
manually-selected AF point (or Zone) set for that orientation.
If you clear the camera settings to their defaults (p.56), the setting will be
[Same for both vert/horiz]. Also, your settings for the three camera
orientations will be cleared and all three will revert to Single-point AF
(Manual selection) with the center AF point selected.
If you set this and later attach a lens from a different AF group (p.79-85,
especially Group H), the setting may be cleared.

105
3 Fine Adjustment of AF’s Point of FocusN
Fine adjustment of the AF’s point of focus is possible for viewfinder
shooting and Live View shooting in the Quick mode. This is called “AF
Microadjustment”. Before making the adjustment, read “Notes for AF
Microadjustment” on page 111.
Normally, this adjustment is not required. Do this adjustment
only if necessary. Note that doing this adjustment may prevent
correct focusing from being achieved.

amount] and [Adjust by lens].
Notes for AF Microadjustment
The AF’s point of focus will vary slightly depending on the subject
conditions, brightness, zoom position, and other shooting conditions.
Therefore, even if you perform AF Microadjustment, focus may still not
be achieved at the suitable position.
The adjustments will be retained even if you clear all the camera settings
(p.56). However, the setting itself will be [Disable].
It is best to make the adjustment at the actual location where you will
shoot. This will make the adjustment more precise.
Using a tripod when making the adjustment is recommended.
For checking the adjustment result, shooting at the 73 image-recording
quality is recommended.
The adjustment amount of one step varies depending on the maximum
aperture of the lens. Keep adjusting, shooting, and checking the focus
repeatedly to adjust the AF’s point of focus.
AF adjustment is not possible for the Live mode and u Live mode
(contrast AF).
111
When Autofocus Fails
Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (viewfinder’s focus confirmation light
<o> blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:
Subjects difficult to focus
Very low-contrast subjects
(Example: Blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.)
Subjects in very low light
Extremely backlit or reflective subjects
(Example: Car with a highly 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 either of the following:
(1) With One-Shot AF, focus on an object at the same distance as the
subject and lock the focus before recomposing (p.67).
(2) Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually (p.113).

The file size, possible shots, and maximum burst during continuous shooting
are based on Canon’s testing standards (3:2 aspect ratio, ISO 100 and
Standard Picture Style) using an 8 GB CF card. These figures will vary
depending on the subject, card brand, aspect ratio, ISO speed, Picture
Style, Custom Functions, and other settings.
The maximum burst applies to <o> high-speed continuous shooting.
Figures in parentheses apply to an Ultra DMA (UDMA) mode 7, 128 GB card

3 Setting the Image-Recording Quality
If you select both RAW and JPEG, the same image will be recorded
simultaneously to the card in both RAW and JPEG at the imagerecording quality that was set. The two images will be recorded with the
same file numbers (file extension .JPG for JPEG and .CR2 for RAW).
The image-recording quality icons are as follows: 1 (RAW), 41
(Medium RAW), 61 (Small RAW), JPEG, 7 (Fine), 8 (Normal), 3
(Large), 4 (Medium), and 6 (Small).
About RAW
A RAW image is raw data output by the image sensor converted to
digital data. It is recorded to the card as is, and you can select the
quality as follows: 1, 41, or 61.
A 1 image can be processed with [31: RAW image processing]
(p.288) and saved as a JPEG image. (41 and 61 images cannot
be processed with the camera.) While the RAW image itself does not
change, you can process the RAW image according to different
conditions to create any number of JPEG images from it.
With all RAW images, you can use Digital Photo Professional (provided
software, p.394) to make various adjustments and then generate a
JPEG, TIFF, etc., image incorporating those adjustments.
Commercially-available software may not be able to display RAW images.
Using the provided software is recommended.

3 Setting the Image-Recording Quality
One-touch Image Quality Setting
With Custom Controls, you can assign the image-recording quality to
the <B> button or depth-of-field preview button so you can switch to
it momentarily. If you assign [One-touch image quality setting] to the
<B> button or depth-of-field preview button, you can quickly switch
to the desired image-recording quality and shoot.
For details, see Custom Controls (p.327).
If [51: Record func+card/folder sel.] is set to [Rec. separately], you
cannot switch to the One-touch image quality setting.
Maximum Burst During Continuous Shooting
The maximum burst is displayed on the
bottom right in the viewfinder.
If the maximum burst for continuous
shooting is 99 or higher, “99” will be
displayed.
The maximum burst is displayed even when a card is not inserted in the
camera. Make sure that a card is inserted before taking a picture.
If the viewfinder displays “99” for the maximum burst, it means the
maximum burst is 99 or higher. If the maximum burst decreases to 98 or
lower and the internal buffer memory becomes full, “buSY” will be
displayed in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel. Shooting will then be
disabled temporarily. If you stop 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 123.
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 123 will apply.

i: Setting the ISO SpeedN
Set the ISO speed (image sensor’s sensitivity to light) to suit the
ambient light level. With the <A> mode selected, the ISO speed will
be set automatically (p.127).
Regarding the ISO speed during movie shooting, see pages 223 and 226.

* Higher ISO speeds will result in grainier images.
If [z3: Highlight tone priority] has been set to [Enable], you cannot
select “L” (ISO 50), ISO 100/125/160, “H1” (ISO 51200), and “H2” (ISO
102400) (p.148).
Shooting in high temperatures may result in images that look grainier.
Long exposures can also cause irregular colors in the image.
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (dots of light, banding, etc.)
may become noticeable.
When shooting in conditions that produce an extreme amount of noise,
such as a combination of high ISO speed, high temperature and long
exposure, images may not be recorded properly.
126
i: Setting the ISO SpeedN
As H1 (equivalent to ISO 51200) and H2 (equivalent to 102400) are
expanded ISO speed settings, noise (dots of light, banding, etc.) and
irregular colors will be more noticeable, and the resolution lower than usual.
If you use a high ISO speed and flash to shoot a close subject,
overexposure may result.
If you shoot a movie when [Maximum: 25600] is set with [ISO speed range]
and ISO speed is set to ISO 16000/20000/25600, the ISO speed will switch to
ISO12800 (during movie shooting with manual exposure). Even if you switch
back to still photo shooting, the ISO speed will not revert to the original setting.
If you shoot a movie when 1. L (50) or 2. H1 (51200)/H2 (102400) is set, the ISO
speed setting will switch to 1. ISO 100 or 2. H (25600) respectively (during movie
shooting with manual exposure). Even if you switch back to still photo shooting,
the ISO speed will not revert to the original setting.
Under [z2: ISO speed settings], you can use [ISO speed range] to
expand the settable ISO speed range from ISO 50 (L) to ISO 102400 (H2) (p.128).
<h> can be displayed in the viewfinder when you set an expanded ISO
speed (L, H1, or H2) (p.324).
ISO Auto
If the ISO speed is set to “A” (Auto), the
actual ISO speed to be set will be displayed
when you press the shutter button halfway.

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 set this with [z2: White balance].
139

images, and images taken with another camera.
Instead of a white object, an 18% gray card (commercially available) can
produce a more accurate white balance.
The personal white balance registered with the provided software will be
registered under <O>. If you execute step 3, the data for the registered
personal white balance will be erased.

When setting the color temperature for an artificial light source, set white
balance correction (magenta or green) as necessary.
If you set <P> to the reading taken with a commercially-available color
temperature meter, take test shots and adjust the setting to compensate
for the difference between the color temperature meter’s reading and the
camera’s color temperature reading.

White Balance Auto Bracketing
With just one shot, three images having a different color balance 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.
Set the white balance bracketing amount.

Bracketing Sequence
The images will be bracketed in the following sequence: 1. Standard
white balance, 2. Blue (B) bias, and 3. Amber (A) bias, or 1. Standard
white balance, 2. Magenta (M) bias, and 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 approx.
one-third the normal number.
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.
When white balance bracketing is set, the white balance icon will blink.
You can change the number of shots for white balance bracketing (p.322).
“BKT” stands for bracketing.

3 Lens Peripheral Illumination / Chromatic Aberration Correction
About the Lens Correction Data
The camera already contains lens peripheral illumination correction
data and chromatic aberration correction data for approx. 25 lenses. If
you select [Enable], the peripheral illumination correction and
chromatic aberration correction will be applied automatically for any
lens whose correction data has been registered in the camera.
With 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, refer to the EOS
Utility Instruction Manual (p.396).
Notes for peripheral illumination correction and chromatic aberration
correction
Corrections cannot be applied to JPEG images captured when [Disable]
was set.
When using a non-Canon lens, setting the corrections to [Disable] is
recommended, even if [Correction data available] is displayed.
If you use the magnified view during Live View shooting, the peripheral
illumination correction and chromatic aberration correction will not be
reflected in the image.
If the effect of the correction is not so visible magnify the image and
check it.
The corrections are also applied when an Extender is attached.
If the correction data for the attached lens is not registered to the
camera, the result will be the same as when the correction is set to
[Disable].
If the lens does not have distance information, the correction amount will
be lower.

About Folders
As with “100EOS5D” for example, the folder name starts with three digits (the
folder number) followed by five alphanumeric characters. A folder can contain
up to 9999 images (file number 0001 - 9999). When a folder becomes full, a
new folder with the folder number increased by one is created automatically.
Also, if manual reset (p.157) 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 format “100ABC_D”.
The first three digits are the folder number, from 100 to 999. The final five
characters can be any combination of upper- and lower-case letters from A to
Z, numerals, and the underscore “_”. The space cannot be used. Also note
that two folder names cannot share the same three-digit folder number (for
example, “100ABC_D” and “100W_XYZ”), even if the other five characters in
each name are different.
153
3 Changing the File Name
The file name has four alphanumeric
characters followed by a four-digit image
(Ex.) BE3B0001.JPG
number (p.156) and extension. The first four
alphanumeric characters are set upon factory
shipment and unique to the camera. However,
you can change them.
With “User setting1”, you can change and register the four characters
as desired. With “User setting2”, if you register three characters, the
fourth character from the left will be appended automatically to indicate
the image size.

About User setting2
When you select the “*** + image size” registered with User setting2 and
take pictures, the image-recording quality character will be automatically
appended as the file name’s fourth character from the left. The meaning of
the image-recording quality characters is as follows:
“***L” = 73, 83, 1
“***M” = 74, 84, 41
“***S” = 7a, 8a, 61
“***T” = b
“***U” = c
When the image is transferred to a personal computer, the automatically
appended fourth character will be included. You can then see the image size
without having to open the image. RAW or JPEG images can be
distinguished with the extension.
The first character cannot be an underscore “_”.
The extension will be “.JPG” for JPEG images, “.CR2” for RAW images,
and “.MOV” for movies.
When you shoot a movie with User setting2, the file name’s fourth
character will be an underscore “_”.
155
3 File Numbering Methods
The four-digit file number is like the frame
number on a roll of film. The captured images
(Ex.) BE3B0001.JPG
are assigned a sequential file number from
0001 to 9999 and saved in one folder. You can
change how the file number is assigned.

Continuous
Continues the file numbering sequence even after the card is
replaced or a new folder is created.
Even after you replace the card, create a folder, or switch the target
card (such as f → g), the file numbering continues in sequence up to
9999 for the images saved. This is convenient when you want to save
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 may 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 newlyformatted card each time.

When you replace the card, create a folder, or switch the target card
(such as f → g), the file numbering continues in sequence from 0001
for the images saved. This is convenient if you want to organize images
according to cards or folders.
If the replacement card or existing folder already contains images
recorded previously, the file numbering of the new images may continue
from the file numbering of the existing images in the card or folder. If
you want to save images with the file numbering starting from 0001, use
a newly formatted card each time.

Manual Reset
To reset the file numbering to 0001 or to start from file number
0001 in a new folder.
When you reset the file numbering manually, a new folder is created
automatically and the file numbering of images saved to that folder
starts from 0001.
This is convenient if 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.
(There will be no Manual reset confirmation screen.)
If the file number in folder 999 reaches 9999, shooting will not be possible
even if the card still has storage capacity. The LCD monitor will display a
message telling you to replace the card. Replace it with a new card.

About Adobe RGB
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 or higher). The image will look very subdued in a
sRGB personal computer environment and with printers not compatible
with Design rule for Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21 or higher). Postprocessing of the image with software will therefore be required.
If the captured still photo was shot in the Adobe RGB color space, the
first character in the file name will be an underscore “_”.
The ICC profile is not appended. Refer to explanations about the ICC
profile in the Digital Photo Professional Instruction Manual (p.396).

the camera, “00” will be displayed for the aperture.
Depth of Field PreviewN
The aperture opening (diaphragm) changes only at the moment when
the picture is taken. Otherwise, the aperture remains fully open.
Therefore, when you look at the scene through the viewfinder or on the
LCD monitor, the depth of field will look narrow.
Press the depth-of-field preview button
to stop down the lens to the current
aperture setting and check the depth of
field (range of acceptable focus).
A higher f/number will make more of the foreground and background fall
within acceptable focus. However, the viewfinder will look darker.
The depth-of-field effect can be clearly seen on the Live View image as
you change the aperture and press the depth-of-field preview button
(p.200).
The exposure will be locked (AE lock) while the depth-of-field preview

Long exposures produce more noise than usual.
If ISO Auto is set, the ISO speed will be fixed at ISO 400 (p.127).
When [z3: Long exp. noise reduction] is set to [Auto] or [Enable],
noise generated by the long exposure can be reduced (p.146).
For bulb exposures, using a tripod and Remote Switch RS-80N3 (sold
separately) or Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 (sold separately) is
recommended (p.187).
You can also use a remote controller (sold separately, p.188) for bulb
exposures. When you press the remote controller’s transmit button, the
bulb exposure will start immediately or 2 sec. later. Press the button
again to stop the bulb exposure.

You can take artistic photos having a high dynamic range and
preserving detail in highlight and shadow areas. HDR shooting is
effective for landscape and still-life shots.
With HDR shooting, three images of different exposures (standard
exposure, underexposure, and overexposure) are captured for
each shot and then merged together automatically. The HDR
image is recorded as a JPEG image.

About Effects
Natural
For images preserving a wide tonal range where the highlight and
shadow detail would otherwise be lost.
Art standard
While the highlight and shadow detail will be better preserved than
with [Natural], the contrast will be lower and the gradation flatter to
have the picture look like a painting. The subject outlines will have
bright (or dark) edges.
Art vivid
The colors are more saturated than with [Art standard] and the low
contrast and flat gradation create a graphic art effect.
Art bold
The colors are the most saturated, making the subject pop out and
the picture look like an oil painting.
Art embossed
The color saturation, brightness, contrast and gradation are
decreased to make the picture look flat. The picture looks faded and
old. The subject outlines will have bright (or dark) edges.

w: HDR (High Dynamic Range) ShootingN
Using a tripod is recommended. For handheld shooting, using a fast
shutter speed is recommended.
HDR shooting of a moving subject is not recommended because the
movement of the subject will appear as afterimages in the merged
image. HDR shooting is suited for still subjects.
In HDR shooting, 3 images are captured with different shutter speeds set
automatically. Therefore, even in s and a shooting modes, the
shutter speed will be shifted based on the shutter speed you set.
To prevent camera shake, the ISO speed may be set higher than usual.
If [Auto Image Align] is set to [Enable] and the HDR picture is shot
handheld, the edges of the photos will be cropped, lowering the
resolution slightly. Also, if the images cannot be aligned properly due to
camera shake, etc., auto image alignment may not take effect. Note that
when shooting with excessively bright or dark exposure settings, auto
image alignment may not work properly.
If you perform handheld HDR shooting while [Auto Image Align] is set
to [Disable], the 3 images may not be properly aligned and the HDR
effect may be minimal.
Auto image alignment may not work properly with repetitive patterns
(lattice, stripes, etc.) or flat, single-tone images.
The color gradation of the sky or white walls may not be reproduced
correctly. Irregular colors or noise may appear.
HDR shooting under fluorescent or LED lighting may result in unnatural
color reproduction of the illuminated areas.
With HDR shooting, the three images will be merged after you take a
picture. Therefore, it will take a longer time to record the HDR image to
the card than with normal shooting. During the merging of the images,
“BUSY” will be displayed and you cannot take another picture until the
merging is completed.
In HDR mode, the options dimmed in the camera menu cannot be set.
When you set HDR mode, the Auto Lighting Optimizer will be set
automatically to [Disable]. It will revert to the original setting when you
cancel the HDR mode.
If the image-recording quality is set to RAW, the HDR image will be
recorded in 73 quality. If the image-recording quality is set to
RAW+JPEG, the HDR image will be recorded in the JPEG quality set.
You can also set HDR shooting with [z3: HDR Mode].

2 Mirror LockupN
Although using the self-timer or Remote Switch can prevent camera
shake, using mirror lockup to prevent camera vibrations (mirror shock)
can also help when you use a super telephoto lens or shoot close ups
(macro photography).
1 Set [Mirror lockup] to [Enable].
Under the [z1] tab, select [Mirror lockup], then press <0>.
Select [Enable], then press <0>.
2 Focus the subject, then press the shutter button
completely.
X The mirror will swing up, and the <2> icon will blink on the LCD panel.
3 Press the shutter button completely again.
X The picture is taken and the mirror goes back down.
In very bright light such as at the beach or a ski slope on a sunny day,
take the picture promptly after mirror lockup.
Do not point the camera toward an intense light source, such as the sun
on a sunny day or an intense artificial light source. Doing so may
damage the image sensor or the camera’s internal components.
If you use the self-timer and mirror lockup in combination with a bulb exposure,
keep pressing the shutter button completely (self-timer delay time + bulb
exposure time). If you let go of the shutter button during the self-timer
countdown, there will be a shutter-release sound, but no picture will be taken.
During mirror lockup, shooting function settings and menu operations, etc. are disabled.
Even if the drive mode is set to continuous shooting, only one shot can
be taken.
You can also use the self-timer with mirror lockup.
If 30 seconds elapse after the mirror has locked up, it will go back down
automatically. Pressing the shutter button completely again locks up the mirror again.
For mirror lockup, using a tripod and Remote Switch RS-80N3 (sold
separately) or Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 (sold separately) is
recommended (p.187).
You can also use a remote controller (sold separately, p.188). Setting the
remote controller to a 2-sec. delay is recommended.
186
Using the Eyepiece Cover
When you use the self-timer or shoot bulb exposures and do not look
through the viewfinder, stray light entering the viewfinder can cause the
image to come out dark. To prevent this, use the eyepiece cover (p.27)
attached to the camera strap.
During Live View shooting and movie shooting, attaching the eyepiece
cover is not necessary.

D Flash Photography
EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlites
An EX-series Speedlite (sold separately) makes flash photography as
easy as normal shooting.
For detailed instructions, refer to the EX-series Speedlite’s
instruction manual. This camera is a Type-A camera that can use all
the features of EX-series Speedlites.
To set the flash functions and flash Custom Functions with the camera’s
menu, see pages 193-198.
Shoe-mount Speedlites
Macro Lites
FE lock
This enables you to attain a proper flash exposure for a specific part
of the subject. Aim the viewfinder center over the subject, then press
the camera’s <B> button and take the picture.
Flash exposure compensation
In the same way as normal exposure compensation, flash exposure
compensation can be set. You can set flash exposure compensation
up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
Press the camera’s <m> button, then turn the <5> dial while
looking in the viewfinder or at the LCD panel.
If [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.144) is not set to [Disable], the image
may still look bright even if a darker flash exposure compensation amount
has been set.
When it is difficult to achieve focus with autofocus, the EOS-dedicated,
external Speedlite may automatically emit the AF-assist beam.

D Flash Photography
Using Non-EX-series Canon Speedlites
With an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlite set to A-TTL or TTL
autoflash mode, the flash can be fired at full output only.
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 that has manual flash mode, shoot in the
manual flash mode.
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 than compact flash units, 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
If you use a non-Canon flash unit with Live View shooting, set [z4:
Silent LV shoot.] to [Disable] (p.208). The flash will not fire if it is set to
[Mode 1] or [Mode 2].
191
D Flash Photography
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 may
not fire.
A flash unit attached to the camera’s hot shoe and a flash unit connected to
the PC terminal can both be used at the same time.

The flash sync speed is set automatically within a range of 1/200
sec. to 30 sec. to suit the scene’s brightness. High-speed sync is
also possible.
: 1/200-1/60 sec. auto
Prevents a slow shutter speed from being set in low-light conditions.
It is effective for preventing subject blur and camera shake.
However, while the subject will be properly exposed with the flash,
the background may come out dark.

Wireless functions
Wireless (multiple) flash shooting is
possible with radio or optical
transmission. For details on wireless
flash, refer to the Speedlite’s instruction
manual.
Flash zoom (Flash coverage)
With Speedlites having a zooming flash
head, you can set the flash coverage.
Normally, set this to [AUTO] so that the
camera will automatically set the flash
coverage to match the lens focal length.
Shutter synchronization
Normally, set this to [First-curtain
synchronization] so that the flash fires
immediately after the exposure starts.
If [Second-curtain synchronization] is set, the flash will fire right
before the shutter closes. When this is combined with a slow shutter
speed, you can create a trail of light such as from car headlights at
night. With Second-curtain synchronization, two flashes will be fired:
Once when you press the shutter button completely, and once
immediately before the exposure ends.
If [High-speed synchronization] is set, the flash can be used at all
shutter speeds. This is especially effective for portraits using fill flash
when you want to give priority to the aperture setting.
196
3 Setting the FlashN
Flash exposure compensation
The same setting as “Flash exposure
compensation” on page 190 can be set.
For details, refer to the Speedlite’s
instruction manual.
Flash exposure bracketing
While the flash output is changed
automatically, three shots are taken.
For details on FEB (Flash Exposure
Bracketing), refer to the Speedlite’s
instruction manual.
When using second-curtain synchronization, set the shutter speed to 1/25
sec. or slower. If the shutter speed is 1/30 sec. or faster, first-curtain
synchronization will be applied even if [Second-curtain synchronization]
is set.
By selecting [Clear flash settings], you can revert the flash settings to
their defaults.
With an EX-series Speedlite not compatible with flash function settings,
you can only set the following: [Flash firing], [E-TTL II meter.], and
[Flash exposure compensation] under [Flash function settings].
([Shutter synchronization] can also be set with certain EX-series
Speedlites.)
If flash exposure compensation is set with the Speedlite, you cannot set
the flash exposure compensation on the camera (with the <m>
button or flash function settings). If it is set with both the camera and
Speedlite, the Speedlite’s setting overrides the camera’s.

Exposure simulationN
Exposure simulation displays and simulates how the brightness of the
actual image (exposure) will look.
• Enable (g)
The displayed image brightness will be close to the actual
brightness (exposure) of the resulting image. If you set exposure
compensation, the image brightness will change accordingly.
• During e
Normally, the image is displayed at the standard brightness to
make the Live View image easy to see. The image will be
displayed close to the actual brightness (exposure) of the resulting
image only while you hold down the depth-of-field preview button.
• Disable (E)
The image is displayed at the standard brightness to make the Live
View image easy to see. Even if you set exposure compensation,
image is displayed at the standard brightness.
If you set an expanded ISO speed setting as [Maximum] in [ISO speed
range], Live View shooting will be possible under darker conditions.
Even if a low ISO speed is set, noise may be noticeable in the displayed
Live View image under low light. However, when you shoot, the image
recorded will have minimal noise. (The image quality of the Live View
image is different from that of the recorded image.)

Silent LV shootingN
• Mode 1
The shooting operation noise is quieter than with normal shooting.
Continuous shooting is also possible. If <o> is set, you can
shoot at a maximum continuous shooting speed of approx. 6 fps.
• Mode 2
When the shutter button is pressed completely, only one shot will be
taken. While you keep holding down the shutter button, the camera
operation will be suspended. Then when you return to the shutter
button’s halfway position, the camera operation will resume. The
shooting noise is thereby minimized. Even if continuous shooting is
set, only a single shot will be taken.
• Disable
Be sure to set it to [Disable] if you use a TS-E lens (other than
those listed in
below) for shifting or tilting the lens or if you
use an Extension tube. Setting it to [Mode 1] or [Mode 2] will result
in incorrect or irregular exposures.
If you use flash, silent shooting will not be possible regardless of the
[Silent LV shoot.] setting.
When using a non-Canon flash unit, set it to [Disable]. The flash will not
fire if it is set to [Mode 1] or [Mode 2].
If [Mode 2] is set and you use remote control shooting (p.188), the

Live View Shooting Cautions
Image Quality
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (dots of light, banding, etc.)
may become noticeable.
Shooting in high temperatures may cause noise and irregular colors in
the image.
If Live View shooting is used continuously for a long period, the camera’s
internal temperature may rise, degrading image quality. Stop Live View
shooting when not shooting images.
If you shoot a long exposure while the camera’s internal temperature is
high, image quality may be degraded. Stop Live View shooting and wait
a few minutes before shooting again.
White <s> and Red <E> Internal Temperature Warning
If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged Live
View shooting or a high ambient temperature, a white icon <s> will
appear. If you continue shooting while this icon is displayed, the image
quality may degrade. You should stop the Live View shooting and allow
the camera to cool down before shooting again.
If the camera’s internal temperature further increases while the white icon
<s> is displayed, a red icon <E> will start blinking. This blinking icon is a
warning that the Live View shooting will soon end automatically. If this
happens, you will not be able to shoot again until the camera’s internal
temperature decreases. Turn off the power and let the camera rest for a while.
Using Live View shooting at a high temperature for a prolonged period
will cause the <s> and <E> icons to appear earlier. When you are not
shooting, turn off the camera.
If the camera’s internal temperature is high, the image quality of high ISO
speed images or long exposures may be degraded even before the
white icon <s> is displayed.
Shooting Result
If you take the picture in magnified view, the exposure may not come out
as desired. Return to the normal view before taking the picture. In
magnified view, the shutter speed and aperture will be displayed in
orange. Even if you take the picture in magnified view, the image will be
captured in the normal view.
If [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.144) is not set to [Disable], the
image may look bright even if a decreased exposure compensation or
decreased flash exposure compensation has been set.
217
Live View Shooting Cautions
Live View Image
Under low- or bright-light conditions, the Live View image may not reflect
the brightness of the captured image.
If the light source within the image changes, the screen may flicker. If this
happens, stop the Live View shooting and resume shooting under the
actual light source to be used.
If you point the camera in a different direction, it may throw off the Live

Since shooting a movie at ISO 16000/20000/25600 may result in much
noise, it is designated as an expanded ISO speed (displayed as [H]).
If [Minimum] is set to [L(50)] and [Maximum] to [H1(51200)] or
[H2(102400)] in [ISO speed range], and you switch from still photo

Notes on Movie Shooting
The camera cannot autofocus continuously like a camcorder.
Autofocusing during movie shooting may momentarily throw the focus far
off or change the exposure.
During movie shooting, do not point the lens toward the sun. The sun’s
heat can damage the camera’s internal components.
Under [51: Record func+card/folder sel.], even if [Record func.] is set
to [Rec. to multiple] (p.118), the movie cannot be recorded to both the
CF card <f> and SD card <g>. If [Rec. separately] or [Rec. to
multiple] is set, the movie will be recorded to the card which has been
set for [Playback].
If <Q> is set and the ISO speed or aperture changes during movie
shooting, the white balance may also change.
If you shoot a movie under fluorescent or LED lighting, the movie may flicker.
Zooming the lens during movie shooting is not recommended. Zooming
the lens can cause changes in the exposure regardless of whether the
lens’ maximum aperture changes or not. Exposure changes may be
recorded as a result.
Cautions for movie shooting are on pages 247 and 248.
If necessary, also read the Live View shooting cautions on pages
217 and 218.
Movie-related settings are under the [z4] and [z5] tabs (p.243). In the
<A> mode, they are under the [z2] and [z3] tabs.
A movie file is recorded each time you shoot a movie. If the file size
exceeds 4 GB, a new file will be created.

Wind Filter
When set to [Enable], it reduces wind noise when there is wind
outdoors. This works only with the built-in microphone.
Note that [Enable] will also reduce low bass sounds, so set it to
[Disable] when there is no wind. It will make sound more natural than
with [Enable].
236
3 Setting the Sound Recording
Using the microphone
The built-in microphone records monaural sound. Stereo sound
recording is possible by connecting an external stereo microphone
(commercially-available) equipped with a miniature stereo plug (3.5
mm) to the camera’s external microphone IN terminal (p.19). When
an external microphone is connected, sound recording will switch
automatically to the external microphone.
Using headphones
By connecting stereo headphones (commercially available)
equipped with a 3.5 mm mini plug to the camera’s headphone
terminal (p.19), you can listen to the sound during movie shooting. If
you are using an external stereo microphone, you can listen to the
sound in stereo.
You can also use headphones during movie playback.
The audio output to the headphones will not have noise reduction applied. It
will therefore be different from the sound recorded with the movie.
In the <A> shooting mode, [Sound recording] settings will be [On/Off].
If [On] is set, the sound-recording level will be adjusted automatically
(same as with [Auto]), but the wind filter function will not take effect.
To adjust the headphones’ volume, press the <Q> button, then tilt the
multi-controller up or down while pressing the <c> button. Note that
the headphone’s volume will not be displayed on the screen. Adjust it
while listening to the sound.
The sound volume balance between L (left) and R (right) cannot be
adjusted.
The 48 kHz sampling frequency will be 16-bit recordings for both L and
R.
If [z5: Silent Control] is set to [Enable h] (p.238), you can adjust the
sound-recording level with the <h> touch pad to reduce the operation
noise during movie shooting.
237
3 Silent Control
This function is convenient when you want to change the ISO speed, soundrecording level, etc., silently while shooting a movie.
When [z5: Silent Control] is set to
[Enable h], you can use the touch pad
<h> on the inner ring of the Quick
Control Dial.
In the <A> mode, this function is
displayed in [z3].
You can just touch the top, bottom, left,
or right of <h> for silent operation.

You can select what to display on the movie-shooting screen.
[Rec time] : Indicates the elapsed time from the start of the movie
shooting.
[Time code] : Indicates the time code during movie shooting.
Shooting still photos during movie shooting will cause a discrepancy
between the actual time and time code.
Regardless of the [Movie rec count] setting, the time code will always be
recorded to the movie file.
Movie Playback Count
You can select what to display on the movie playback screen.
[Rec time] : Displays the recording time and playback time during
movie playback.
[Time code] : Displays the time code during movie playback.

3 Setting the Time Code
HDMI
Time code
You can append the time code to a movie that was output from
HDMI (p.246).
[On]: Time code is appended to the HDMI output image.
[Off]: Time code is not appended to the HDMI output image.
Recording command
When you record a movie that is output from HDMI to an external
recording device, you can synchronize the camera’s movie shooting
start/stop with the external recording device’s recording operation.
[On]: Synchronize external recording device’s recording start/stop
with camera’s movie shooting start/stop.
[Off]: Control external device’s recording start/stop from external
recording device.
If the movie-recording quality’s frame rate (p.233) and HDMI output frame
rate are set manually to NTSC and PAL frame rates in a combination that
does not function properly, the time code will not be appended to the HDMI
output image.
241
3 Setting the Time Code
Drop Frame
If the frame rate setting is 6(29.97fps) or 8(59.94fps), the time code’s
frame count causes a discrepancy between the actual time and time
code. This discrepancy can be corrected automatically. This correction
function is called drop frame.
[Enable] : The discrepancy is corrected automatically by skipping
time code numbers (DF: Drop frame).
[Disable] : The discrepancy is not corrected (NDF: Non-drop frame).
When the frame rate is set to 4 (23.976fps), 5 (25.00fps), or 7
(50.00fps), the drop frame function does not take effect. (If 4 is set or [53:
Video system] is set to [PAL], [Drop frame] option will not be displayed.)

3 Menu Function Settings
HDMI output + LCD
This is for recording the HDMI output image to an external recording
device. [No mirroring] is set by default.
If you set [Mirroring], the movie displayed on the LCD monitor as it
is being recorded can also be displayed from the HDMI output. Note
that the video from the HDMI output will be displayed without the
shooting information or masking for indicating image area (output
without information overlay: through display).
If [No mirroring] is set, the movie will be displayed on the LCD
monitor, but if there is HDMI output, the LCD monitor will turn off.
With this setting, the movie from the HDMI output will show the
shooting information and masking for indicating image area.
However, by pressing the <B> button, you can eliminate the
information from the output.
If the HDMI movie is output without information, the card’s remaining
capacity, battery level, internal temperature increase (p.247) and other
indicators will not appear on the HDMI output screen. Be aware of this if
[No mirroring] is set. If [Mirroring] is set, you can check these
indicators on the LCD monitor.
When you are not shooting movies, the power will turn off automatically
in accordance with the auto power off time. If you are recording the HDMI
output image to an external recording device, setting [52: Auto power
off] to [Disable] (p.55) is recommended.
Audio is not output during HDMI output.
Even if [Mirroring] is set, no image will be displayed through the HDMI
output when a movie is played back or menu is displayed.
When you stop movie shooting, the HDMI output image will pause (frame
stop) while the movie is being recorded to the card. After the recording is
completed, the image will be displayed normally.
Simultaneous output from both HDMI and A/V OUT is not possible. The
movie will be output to the cable that was connected to the terminal last.
During A/V OUT output, nothing will be displayed on the LCD monitor.
The brightness of a movie shot by the camera and that of a recorded
HDMI output image on the external recording device may differ
depending on the viewing environment.

When you record movie from the HDMI output to a commerciallyavailable external recording device, set the frame rate to match the
external recording device’s frame rate.
If the frame rate set manually is not compatible with the external
recording device, the frame rate will be set automatically.
If [Movie recording size] is set to frame rate 4 when [HDMI frame
rate: 60i] is set, “2-3 pulldown” will be performed.

Movie Shooting Cautions
White <s> and Red <E> Internal Temperature Warning Icons
If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged movie
shooting or a high ambient temperature, a white icon <s> will appear.
Even if you shoot a movie while this icon is displayed, the movie’s image
quality will hardly be affected. However, if you shoot still photos, the
image quality of the still photos may degrade. You should stop shooting
still photos for a while and allow the camera to cool down.
If the camera’s internal temperature further increases while the white
icon <s> is displayed, a red icon <E> may start blinking. This blinking
icon is a warning that movie shooting will soon end automatically. If this
happens, you will not be able to shoot again until the camera’s internal
temperature decreases. Turn off the power and let the camera rest for a
while.
Shooting a movie at a high temperature for a prolonged period will cause
the <s> and <E> icons to appear earlier. When you are not shooting,
turn off the camera.
Recording and Image Quality
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 consumes battery power and may shorten the total
movie shooting time or decrease the number of possible shots. 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. Using a commercially-available external microphone can prevent
(or reduce) these noises from being recorded.
Do not connect anything other than an external microphone to the
camera’s external microphone IN terminal.
If there is a very bright light source in the picture, the bright area may
appear black on the LCD monitor. In movies, the bright areas will be
recorded in almost the same way you see it on the LCD monitor.
In low light, noise or irregular colors may appear in the image. In movies,
the bright areas will be recorded in almost the same way you see it on
the LCD monitor.
247
Movie Shooting Cautions
Recording and Image Quality
If you use a card having a slow writing speed, a five-level
indicator may 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.
Still Photo Shooting During Movie Shooting
Regarding the image quality of still photos, see “Image Quality” on page
217.
Playback and TV connection
In autoexposure shooting, shutter-priority AE, or aperture-priority AE
modes, if the brightness changes during movie shooting, the movie may
freeze temporarily. In such cases, shoot movies with manual exposure.
If you connect the camera to a TV set (p.274, 277) and shoot a movie,
the TV will not output any sound during the shooting. However, the
sound will be properly recorded.

(p.274, 277)
Use the provided AV cable or an HDMI
Cable HTC-100 (sold separately) to
connect the camera to a TV set. Then
you can play back captured movies and
still photos on the TV.
If you have a High-Definition TV set and
connect your camera with an HDMI
cable, you can watch Full High-Definition
(Full HD: 1920x1080) and HighDefinition (HD: 1280x720) movies with
higher image quality.
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 to a hard disk recorder with an HDMI cable.
Even if the camera is connected to a hard disk recorder with a USB
cable, movies and still photos cannot be played nor saved.
Playback on the Camera’s LCD Monitor
(p.267-273)
You can play back movies on the
camera’s LCD monitor. You can also edit
out the movie’s first and last scenes, and
play back the still photos and movies on
the card in an automatic slide show.
A movie edited with a personal computer cannot be rewritten to the card and
played back with the camera.

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. If 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.
295
f Automatic Sensor Cleaning
Whenever you set the power switch to <1> or <2>, the Self
Cleaning Sensor Unit operates to automatically shake off the dust on
the front of the sensor. Normally, you need not pay attention to this
operation. However, you can choose to perform sensor cleaning at any
time, or disable it.

Select [Sensor cleaning].
Under the [53] tab, select [Sensor
cleaning], then press <0>.
[Clean nowf].
2 Select
Select [Clean nowf], then press
<0>.
Select [OK] on the dialog screen,
then press <0>.
X The screen will indicate that the
sensor is being cleaned. Although
there will be a shutter sound during
the cleaning, a picture is not taken.
For best results, perform the sensor cleaning while the camera bottom is
placed on a table or other flat surface.
Even if you repeat the sensor cleaning, the result will not improve much.
Immediately after the sensor cleaning is finished, the [Clean nowf]
option will remain disabled temporarily.
Disabling Automatic Sensor Cleaning
In step 2, select [Auto cleaningf] and set it to [Disable].
X The sensor cleaning will no longer be executed when you set the
power switch to <1> or <2>.
296
3 Appending Dust Delete DataN
Normally, the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit will eliminate most of the dust
that may be visible on captured images. However, in case visible dust
still remains, you can append the Dust Delete Data to the image for
erasing the dust spots later. The Dust Delete Data is used by Digital
Photo Professional (provided software, p.394) to erase the dust spots
automatically.
Preparation
Prepare a solid white object such as a sheet of paper.
Set the lens focal length to 50 mm or longer.
Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and set the focus to infinity
(∞). If the lens has no distance scale, look at the front of the lens and
turn the focusing ring clockwise all the way.
Obtain the Dust Delete Data

Under the [z3] tab, select [Dust
Delete Data], then press <0>.

a solid-white object.
3 Photograph
At a distance of 20 cm - 30 cm (0.7 ft.
- 1.0 ft.), fill the viewfinder with a
patternless, solid-white object and
take a picture.
X The picture will be taken in aperturepriority AE mode at an aperture of f/22.
Since the image will not be saved, the
data can still be obtained even if there
is no card in the camera.
X When the picture is taken, the camera will
start collecting the Dust Delete Data.
When the Dust Delete Data is obtained, a
message will appear. Select [OK], and
the menu will reappear.
If the data was not obtained
successfully, a message to that effect
will appear. Follow the “Preparation”
procedure on the preceding page, then
select [OK]. Take the picture again.
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.
For details about using Digital Photo Professional (provided software,
p.394) to erase dust spots, refer to the Digital Photo Professional
Instruction Manual (p.396).
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.
298
3 Manual Sensor CleaningN
Dust that could not be removed by the automatic sensor cleaning can
be removed manually with a blower, etc. Before cleaning the sensor,
detach the lens from the camera.
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.

If you use a battery, make sure it is fully charged. If the battery grip with sizeAA/LR6 batteries is attached, manual sensor cleaning will not be possible.
As power source, using the AC Adapter Kit ACK-E6 (sold separately) is
recommended.
299
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 may then get damaged.
• Setting the power switch to <2>.
• Removing or inserting the battery.
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 cut off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains or
reflex mirror may 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 the battery level becomes low while you clean the sensor, the beeper
will sound as a warning. Stop cleaning the sensor.
If a smudge that cannot be removed with a blower remains, having the
sensor cleaned by a Canon Service Center is recommended.

Safety shift
OFF: Disable
Tv/Av: Shutter speed/Aperture
This takes effect in the shutter-priority AE (s) and aperture-priority AE
(f) modes. If the subject brightness changes and the standard
exposure cannot be obtained within the autoexposure range, the
camera will automatically change the manually-selected setting to obtain
a standard exposure.
ISO: ISO speed
This works in the Program AE (d), shutter-priority AE (s), and
aperture-priority AE (f) modes. If the subject brightness changes and
the standard exposure cannot be obtained within the autoexposure
range, the camera will automatically change the manually set ISO speed
to obtain a standard exposure.
Under [z2: ISO speed settings], even if [ISO speed range] or [Min.
shutter spd.] is changed from the default setting, safety shift will
override it if a standard exposure cannot be obtained.
The minimum and maximum ISO speeds of the safety shift using the ISO
speed will be determined by the [Auto ISO range] setting (p.129).
However, if the manually set ISO speed exceeds the [Auto ISO range],
the safety shift will take effect up to the manually set ISO speed.
If [Shutter speed/Aperture] or [ISO speed] is set, safety shift will take
effect if necessary even when flash is used.

Using Eye-Fi Cards
With a commercially-available Eye-Fi card already set up, you can
automatically transfer captured images to a personal computer or
upload them to an online service via a wireless LAN.
The image transfer is a function of the Eye-Fi card. For instructions on
how to set up and use the Eye-Fi card or to troubleshoot any image
transfer problems, refer to the Eye-Fi card’s instruction manual or
contact the card’s manufacturer.
The camera is not guaranteed to support Eye-Fi card
functions (including wireless transfer). In case of an issue
with an Eye-Fi card, please check with the card manufacturer.
Also note that approval is required to use Eye-Fi cards in
many countries or regions. Without approval, use of the card
is not permitted. If it is unclear whether the card has been
approved for use in your area, please check with the card
manufacturer.

Cautions for Using Eye-Fi Cards
If “ ” is displayed, an error occurred while retrieving the card
information. Turn the camera’s power switch off and on again.
Even if [Eye-Fi trans.] is set to [Disable], it may still transmit a signal. In
hospitals, airports, and other places where wireless transmissions are
prohibited, remove the Eye-Fi card from the camera.
If the image transfer does not function, check the Eye-Fi card and
personal computer settings. For details, refer to the card’s instruction
manual.
Depending on the wireless LAN’s connection conditions, the image
transfer may take longer or it may be interrupted.
Because of the transmission function, the Eye-Fi card may become hot.
The battery power will be consumed faster.
During the image transfer, auto power off will not take effect.

Troubleshooting Guide
If a problem occurs with the camera, 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 pack does not recharge.
If the battery’s remaining capacity (p.344) is 94% or higher, the battery
will not be recharged.
Do not recharge any battery pack other than genuine Canon Battery
Pack LP-E6/LP-E6N.
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. If the
problem persists, contact your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
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.30).
Make sure the battery compartment cover is closed (p.30).
Make sure the card slot cover is closed (p.31).
Recharge the battery (p.28).
364
Troubleshooting Guide
The access lamp still blinks even when the power switch is
set to <2>.
If the power is turned off while an image is being recorded to the card,
the access lamp will remain on/continue to blink for a few seconds.
When the image recording is completed, the power will turn off
automatically.
The battery becomes exhausted quickly.
Use a fully-charged battery pack (p.28).
The battery performance may have degraded. See [53: Battery info.]
to check the battery’s recharge performance level (p.344). If the
battery performance is poor, replace the battery pack with a new one.
The number of possible shots will decrease with any of the following
operations:
• Pressing the shutter button halfway for a prolonged period.
• Often activating only the AF without taking a picture.
• Using the lens’ Image Stabilizer.
• Using the LCD monitor often.
• Continuing Live View shooting or movie shooting for a prolonged
period.
The camera turns off by itself.
Auto power off is in effect. If you do not want auto power off to take
effect, set [52: Auto power off] to [Disable] (p.55).
Even if [52: Auto power off] is set to [Disable], the LCD monitor will
still turn off after the camera is left idle for 30 min. (The camera’s
power does not turn off.)
Shooting-Related Problems
The lens cannot be attached.
The camera cannot be used with EF-S or EF-M lenses (p.39).
365
Troubleshooting Guide
The viewfinder is dark.
Install a recharged battery pack in the camera (p.28).
No images can be shot or recorded.
The card is not properly inserted (p.31).
If you are using an SD card, slide the card’s write-protect switch to the
Write/Erase setting (p.31).
If the card is full, replace the card or delete unnecessary images to
make room (p.31, 283).
If you try to focus in the One-Shot AF mode while the focus
confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be
taken. Press the shutter button halfway again to refocus automatically,
or focus manually (p.44, 113).
The card cannot be used.
If a card error message is displayed, see page 33 or 377.
An error message is displayed when the card is inserted in
another camera.
Cards with capacities greater than 128 GB are formatted in exFAT.
This means that if you format a card with a capacity over 128 GB with
this camera and then insert it into another camera, an error may be
displayed and it may not be possible to use the card.
The image is out of focus.
Set the lens focus mode switch to <AF> (p.39).
To prevent camera shake, press the shutter button gently (p.43, 44).
If the lens has an Image Stabilizer, set the IS switch to <1> (p.42).
In low light, the shutter speed may become slow. Use a faster shutter
speed (p.164), set a higher ISO speed (p.126), use flash (p.190), or
use a tripod.
366
Troubleshooting Guide
There are fewer AF points.
Depending on the attached lens, the number of usable AF points and
patterns will differ. The lenses are categorized into eight groups from A
to H. Check which group your lens belongs to. Using a lens in Groups
F to H will have fewer usable AF points (p.79).
The AF point is blinking.
When you press the <S> button, the blinking AF points are those that
are not cross-type AF points and are only horizontal line-sensitive. The
AF points that light up are cross-type AF points (p.74).
The AF point at the registered area is blinking (p.330).
I cannot lock the focus and recompose the shot.
Set the AF mode to One-Shot AF. Focus lock is not possible in the AI
Servo AF and AI Focus AF modes (p.70).
The continuous shooting speed is slow.
Depending on the shutter speed, aperture, subject conditions,
brightness, etc., the continuous shooting speed may become slower.
The maximum burst during continuous shooting is lower.
If you shoot something that has fine detail (such as a field of grass),
the file size will be larger and the actual maximum burst may be lower
than the number mentioned on page 123.
ISO 100 cannot be set. ISO speed expansion cannot be selected.
If [z3: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], the settable ISO
speed range will be ISO 200-25600 (or up to 12800 for movie
shooting). Even if you expand the settable ISO speed range in [ISO
speed range], you cannot set expanded ISO speeds (L, H, H1, H2).
When [z3: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Disable], ISO 100/125/
160 can be set (p.148).
367
Troubleshooting Guide
The Auto Lighting Optimizer cannot be set.
If [z3: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], the Auto Lighting
Optimizer cannot be set. When [z3: Highlight tone priority] is set to
[Disable], then the Auto Lighting Optimizer can be set (p.148).
Even though I set a decreased exposure compensation, the
image comes out bright.
Set [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] to [Disable]. When [Standard/
Low/High] is set, even if you set a decreased exposure compensation or
flash exposure compensation, the image may come out bright (p.171).
The Live View image or movie shooting image is not
displayed during multiple-exposure shooting.
If [On:ContShtng] is set, Live View display, image review after image
capture, and image playback are not possible during shooting (p.179).
The multiple-exposure image is shot in 1 quality.
When the image-recording quality is set to 41 or 61, the
multiple-exposure image will be recorded in 1 quality (p.185).
When I use the <f> mode with flash, the shutter speed
becomes slow.
If you shoot at night when the background is dark, the shutter speed
becomes slow automatically (slow-sync shooting) so that both the subject
and background are properly exposed. To prevent a slow shutter speed,
under [z1: External Speedlite control], set [Flash sync. speed in
Av mode] to [1/200-1/60 sec. auto] or [1/200 sec. (fixed)] (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 unit with Live View shooting, set [z4:
Silent LV shoot.] to [Disable] (p.208).
368
Troubleshooting Guide
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.191).
When the [Flash metering mode] flash Custom Function is set to
[TTL (autoflash)], the flash will always be fired at full output (p.198).
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
canceled (set to 0), flash exposure compensation can be set with the
camera.
High-speed sync cannot be set in the <f> mode.
Under [z1: External Speedlite control], set [Flash sync. speed in
Av mode] to [Auto] (p.194).
The shutter makes two shooting sounds during
Live View shooting.
If you use flash, the shutter will make two sounds each time you shoot
(p.201).
During Live View and movie shooting, a white
icon is displayed.
or red E
It indicates that the camera’s internal temperature is high. If the white
< > icon displayed, the still photo’s image quality may deteriorate. If
the red <E> icon is displayed, it indicates that the Live View or movie
shooting will soon be terminated automatically (p.217, 247).
369
Troubleshooting Guide
Movie shooting terminates by itself.
If the card’s writing speed is slow, movie shooting may stop
automatically. When the compression method is set to [IPB], use a CF
card with a reading/writing speed of at least 10 MB per sec., and a SD
card with a reading/writing speed of at least 6 MB per sec. When the
compression method is set to [ALL-I (I-only)], use a CF card with a
reading/writing speed of at least 30 MB per sec., and a SD card with a
reading/writing speed of at least 20 MB per sec. To find out the card’s
reading/writing speed, refer to the card manufacturer’s Web site (p.219).
If the movie shooting time reaches 29 min. 59 sec., the movie shooting
will stop automatically.
The ISO speed cannot be set for movie shooting.
If the shooting mode is <A/d/s/f/F>, the ISO speed will be set
automatically. In the <a> mode, you can freely set the ISO speed (p.226).
ISO 16000/20000/25600 cannot be set for movie shooting.
Under [z2: ISO speed range], if you set the [ISO speed range]’s
[Maximum] setting to [25600/H], the maximum ISO speed for manual ISO
speed setting will be expanded and then ISO 16000/20000/25600 can be set.
However, since shooting a movie at ISO 16000/20000/256000 may result in
much noise, it is designated as an expanded ISO speed (displayed as [H]).
The manually set ISO speed changes when switching to
movie shooting.
If you shoot a movie when [Maximum: 25600] is set with [ISO speed range]
and ISO speed is set to ISO 16000/20000/25600, the ISO speed will switch to
ISO12800 (during movie shooting with manual exposure). Even if you switch
back to still photo shooting, the ISO speed will not revert to the original setting.
If you shoot a movie when 1. L (50) or 2. H1 (51200)/H2 (102400) is set, the
ISO speed setting will switch to 1. ISO 100 or 2. H (25600) respectively
(during movie shooting with manual exposure). Even if you switch back to
still photo shooting, the ISO speed will not revert to the original setting.
370
Troubleshooting Guide
The exposure changes during movie shooting.
If you change the shutter speed or aperture during movie shooting, the
changes in the exposure may be recorded.
Zooming the lens during movie shooting can cause changes in the
exposure regardless of whether the lens’ maximum aperture changes
or not. Changes in the exposure may be recorded as a result.
The subject looks distorted during movie shooting.
If you move the camera to the left or right quickly (high-speed panning)
or shoot a moving subject, the image may look distorted.
The image flickers or horizontal stripes appear during movie shooting.
Flickering, horizontal stripes (noise), or irregular exposures can be
caused by fluorescent light, LED bulbs, or other light sources during
movie shooting. Also, changes in the exposure (brightness) or color
tone may also be recorded. In the <a> mode, a slow shutter speed
may solve the problem.
When I shoot still photos during movie shooting, the movie shooting stops.
To shoot still photos during movie shooting, using a CF card
compatible with UDMA transfer rates is recommended.
Setting a lower image quality for still photos and shooting fewer
continuous still photos can also resolve the problem.
Time code is off.
Shooting still photos during movie shooting will cause a discrepancy
between the actual time and time code. When you want to edit a movie
using time code, it is recommended not to shoot still photos during
movie shooting.
371
Troubleshooting Guide
The time code cannot be appended during HDMI output.
If the movie-recording quality’s frame rate setting is set to a value that
does not function properly in combination with the NTSC/PAL frame
rate, the time code will not be appended to the HDMI output image.
The HDMI output image has a temporary frame stop.
When the movie shooting ends, the HDMI output image pauses (frame
stop). When writing to the card is completed, the movie is output
normally.
Movie shooting stops if I connect or disconnect the
HDMI cable.
If you connect or disconnect the HDMI cable during movie shooting,
the movie shooting will stop.
Operation Problems
I cannot change the setting with <6>, <5>, or <9>.
Set the <R> switch to the left (lock release, p.47).
Check the [82: Multi function lock] setting (p.325).
The camera button/dial’s function has changed.
Check the [82: Custom Controls] setting (p.327).
Display Problems
The menu screen shows few tabs and options.
In the <A> mode, only certain menu tabs and options are displayed.
Set the shooting mode to <d/s/f/a/F> (p.51).
372
Troubleshooting Guide
The file name’s first character is an underscore (“_”).
Set the color space to sRGB. If Adobe RGB is set, the first character
will be an underscore (p.160).
The fourth character in the file name changes.
With [51: File name], select the camera’s unique file name or the file
name registered under User setting 1 (p.154).
The file numbering does not start from 0001.
If the card already contains recorded images, the image number may
not start from 0001 (p.156).
The shooting date and time displayed is incorrect.
The correct date and time has not been set (p.36).
Check the time zone and daylight savings time (p.37).
The date and time is not in the picture.
The shooting date and time does not appear in the picture. The date and
time is instead recorded in the image data as shooting information. When
printing, you can imprint the date and time in the picture by using the date
and time recorded in the shooting information (p.307, 311).
[###] is displayed.
If the card has recorded a number of images greater than the camera
can display, [###] will be displayed (p.262).
In the viewfinder, the AF point display speed is slow.
In low temperatures, the display speed of the AF points may become
slower due to the AF point display device’s (liquid crystal)
characteristics. The display speed will return to normal at room
temperature.
373
Troubleshooting Guide
The LCD monitor does not display a clear image.
If the LCD monitor is dirty, use a soft cloth to clean it.
In low or high temperatures, the LCD monitor display may seem slow
or may look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.
[Eye-Fi settings] does not appear.
[Eye-Fi settings] will appear only when an Eye-Fi card is inserted into
the camera. If the Eye-Fi card has a write-protect switch set to the
LOCK position, you will not be able to check the card’s connection
status or disable Eye-Fi card transmission (p.350).
Playback Problems
Part of the image blinks in black.
[33: Highlight alert] is set to [Enable] (p.253).
A red box is displayed on the image.
[33: AF point disp.] is set to [Enable] (p.253).
The image cannot be erased.
If the image is protected, it cannot be erased (p.278).
The movie cannot play.
Movies edited with a personal computer 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. Use an external microphone
(commercially available) (p.237).
374
Troubleshooting Guide
The movie has still moments.
During autoexposure movie shooting, if there is a drastic change in the
exposure level, the recording will stop momentarily until the brightness
stabilizes. If this happens, shoot with <a> shooting mode (p.225).
No image appears on the TV screen.
Use the stereo AV cable that came with the camera (p.277).
Make sure the stereo AV cable or HDMI cable’s plug is inserted all the
way in (p.274, 277).
Set the video OUT system (NTSC/PAL) to the same video system as
the TV set (p.277).
Even if you play back an image when [z5: HDMI output + LCD] is
set to [Mirroring], the image will not appear on the TV specified as
HDMI output.
There are multiple movie files for a single movie shoot.
If the movie file size reaches 4 GB, another movie file will be created
automatically (p.234).
My card reader does not recognize the card.
If you format a card of 128 GB or higher with this camera, it will be
formatted in exFAT. This means that some card readers and computer
operating systems might not recognize the card properly. In such a
case, connect your camera to the computer with the provided interface
cable, then transfer the images to your computer using EOS Utility
(provided software, p.394).
I cannot process the RAW image.
41 and 61 images cannot be processed with the camera. Use
the provided software Digital Photo Professional to process the image

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.
389
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.
390
Safety Precautions
Cautions:
Follow the cautions below. Otherwise physical injury
or property damage may result.

product may become hot and cause skin burns. Doing so may also cause battery leakage
or explosion, which will degrade the performance or shorten the life of the product.
Do not carry the camera around when 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 the product in a low-temperature environment for an extended period of
time. The product will become cold and may cause injury when touched.
