Introduction
Before Starting to Shoot, Be Sure to Read the Following
To avoid botched pictures and accidents, first read the “Safety Precautions”
(= 22) and “Handling Precautions” (= 25). Also, read this manual
carefully to ensure that you use the camera correctly.
Refer to This Manual while Using the Camera to Further
Familiarize Yourself with the Camera
While reading this manual, take a few test shots and see how they come
out. You can then better understand the camera. Be sure to store this
manual safely, too, so that you can refer to it again when necessary.
Testing the Camera Before Use and Liability
After shooting, play images back and check whether they have been
properly recorded. If the camera or memory card is faulty and the images
cannot be recorded or downloaded to a computer, Canon cannot be held
liable for any loss or inconvenience caused.
Copyrights
Copyright laws in your country may prohibit the use of your recorded

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.
Warnings:
Follow the warnings below. Otherwise, death or serious injuries
may result.
zz 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, or the product if it is damaged.
-- 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 charging
(working) temperature range. Also, do not exceed the recharge time indicated in
the Instruction Manual.
-- Do not insert any foreign metallic objects into the electrical contacts of the
camera, accessories, connecting cables, etc.
zz When disposing of a battery, insulate the electrical contacts with tape. Contact with
other metallic objects or batteries may cause a fire or an explosion.
zz 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.
zz 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 burns if you keep using it.
zz Prevent any battery leakage from contacting your eyes, skin, and clothing. It can
cause blindness or skin problems. If the battery leakage comes in contact with your
eyes, skin, or clothing, flush the affected area with lots of clean water without rubbing
it. See a physician immediately.
zz 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.
zz 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 or blistering due to low-temperature contact burns. Using a
tripod is recommended when using the camera in very hot places or for people with
circulation problems or poor skin sensation.
zz Do not fire the flash at anyone driving a car or other vehicle. It may cause an accident.
zz When the camera or accessories are not in use, make sure to remove the battery,
and disconnect the power plug and connecting cables from the equipment before
storing. This is to prevent electrical shock, excessive heat, fire, and corrosion.
22
zz Do not use the equipment where there is flammable gas. This is to prevent an
explosion or a fire.
zz If you drop the equipment and the casing breaks open to expose the internal parts,
do not touch the exposed internal parts. There is a possibility of an electrical shock.
zz Do not disassemble or modify the equipment. High-voltage internal parts can cause
electrical shock.
zz Do not look at the sun or an extremely bright light source through the camera or lens.
Doing so may damage your vision.
zz 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.
zz Do not use or store the equipment in dusty or humid places. Likewise, keep the battery
away from metallic items and store it with its protective cover attached to prevent shortcircuit. This is to prevent fire, excessive heat, electrical shock, and burns.
zz 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.
zz 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.
zz 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.
zz 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 fire, burns, or injuries.
zz 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.
zz 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.
zz Do not cover or wrap the product with a cloth when using it. Doing so may trap heat
within and cause the casing to deform or catch fire.
zz 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 fire,
electrical shock, and burns.
zz Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the product.
Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard.
23
the cautions below. Otherwise, physical injury or
Cautions: Follow
property damage may result.
zz Do not use or store the product in a high-temperature location such as inside a car
under the hot sun. The product may become hot and cause burns. Doing so may
also cause battery leakage or explosion, which will degrade the performance or
shorten the life of the product.
zz Do not carry the camera around when it is attached to a tripod. Doing so may cause
an injury or an accident. Also make sure the tripod is sturdy enough to support the
camera and lens.
zz 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.
zz Do not fire the flash near the eyes. It may hurt the eyes.
24
Handling Precautions
Camera Care
zz This camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to
physical shock.
zz The camera is not waterproof and cannot be used underwater. If you
accidentally drop the camera into water, promptly consult the nearest
Canon Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry and clean
cloth. If the camera has been exposed to salty air, wipe it with a clean,
well-wrung wet cloth.
zz 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.
zz Do not leave the camera in excessive heat, such as in a car in direct
sunlight. High temperatures can cause the camera to malfunction.
zz The camera contains precision electronic circuitry. Never attempt to
disassemble the camera yourself.
zz Do not block the mirror operation with your finger, etc. Doing so may
cause a malfunction.
zz Use only a commercially-available blower to blow away dust when it
adheres to the lens, viewfinder, reflex mirror, focusing screen, etc. 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.
zz Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your fingers. This is
to prevent the contacts from corroding. Corroded contacts can cause
camera malfunction.
zz 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.
zz If condensation forms on the camera, do not use the camera. This is
to avoid damaging the camera. If there is condensation, remove the
lens, card and battery from the camera, and wait until condensation has
evaporated before using the camera.
25
zz 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.
zz Avoid storing the camera where there are chemicals that result in rust
and corrosion such as in a chemical lab.
zz If the camera has not been used for an extended period, test all its
functions before using it. If you have not used the camera for some time
or if there is an important shoot such as a foreign trip coming up, have
the camera checked by your nearest Canon Service Center or check
the camera yourself and make sure it is working properly.
zz If you repeat continuous shooting or perform Live View shooting or
movie shooting for a prolonged period, the camera may become hot.
This is not a malfunction.
zz If there is a bright light source inside or outside the image area,
ghosting may occur.
LCD Monitor
zz Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision
technology with over 99.99% effective pixels, 0.01% or fewer of the
pixels may be dead, and there may also be spots of black, red, or other
colors. Dead pixels are not a malfunction. They do not affect the images
recorded.
zz 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.
zz The LCD monitor display may seem slightly slow in low temperatures,
or look black in high temperatures. It will return to normal at room
temperature.
Cards
To protect the card and its recorded data, note the following:
zz Do not drop, bend, or wet the card. Do not subject it to excessive force,
physical shock, or vibration.
zz Do not touch the card’s electronic contacts with your fingers or anything
metallic.
zz Do not affix any stickers, etc. on the card.
26
zz Do not store or use the card near anything that has a strong magnetic
field, such as a TV set, speakers, or magnets. Also avoid places prone
to having static electricity.
zz Do not leave the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source.
zz Store the card in a case.
zz Do not store the card in hot, dusty, or humid locations.
Smudges Adhering to the Front of the Sensor
Besides dust entering the camera from outside, in rare cases, lubricant
from the camera’s internal parts may adhere to the front of the sensor. If
smudges are visible on the images, having the sensor cleaned by a Canon
Service Center is recommended.

34
Charging the Battery
1 Remove the protective cover.
zz Detach the protective cover provided
with the battery.
2 Attach the battery.
zz As shown in the illustration, attach the
battery securely to the charger.
zz To detach the battery, follow the above
procedure in reverse.
3 Recharge the battery.
zz Connect the power cord to the charger
and insert the plug into a power outlet.
BBRecharging starts automatically and the
charge lamp (1) lights up in orange.
BBWhen the battery is fully recharged, the
full-charge lamp (2) will light up in green.
zz It takes approx. 2 hours to fully recharge a completely exhausted
battery at room temperature (23°C / 73°F). The time required to
recharge the battery will vary greatly depending on the ambient
temperature and the battery’s remaining capacity.
zz For safety reasons, recharging in low temperatures (5°C - 10°C / 41°F 50°F) will take longer (up to approx. 4 hr.).
35
Tips for Using the Battery and Charger
zz Upon purchase, the battery is not fully charged.
Charge the battery before use.
zz 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.
zz After recharging the battery, detach it and disconnect the charger
from the power outlet.
zz 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 will keep being released, resulting in excess
discharge and shorter battery life. Store the battery with the protective
cover (provided) attached. Storing the battery when it is fully charged
may lower the battery performance.
zz 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 may damage the
battery charger.
zz If the battery becomes exhausted quickly even after having been
fully charged, the battery has reached the end of its service life.
Check the battery’s recharge performance (= 460) and purchase a
new battery.
zz After disconnecting the charger’s power plug, do not touch the prongs for
approx. 5 sec.
zz Do not charge any battery other than a Battery Pack LP-E17.
zz Battery Pack LP-E17 is dedicated to Canon products only. Using it with an
incompatible battery charger or product may result in malfunction or accidents
for which Canon cannot be held liable.
36

zz If the LCD monitor has any moisture or if your fingers are wet, the touch
screen may not respond or malfunction may occur. In such a case, turn off the
power and wipe off the moisture with a cloth.
zz Attaching any commercially-available protective sheet or sticker on the LCD
monitor may degrade the touch operation response.
zz If you quickly perform touch operation when [Sensitive] is set, the touch
operation response may be poor.
65
Formatting Memory Cards
If the card is new or was previously formatted by another camera or
computer, format the card with this camera.
zz When the card is formatted, all images and data on the card will be
erased. Even protected images will be erased, so make sure there is
nothing you need to keep. If necessary, transfer the images and data to
a computer, etc. before formatting the card.
1 Select [Format card].
zz Under the [5] tab, select [Format
card], then press <0>.
2 Format the card.
zz Select [OK], then press <0>.
BBThe card will be formatted.
BBWhen the formatting is complete, the
menu will reappear.
zz For low-level formatting, press the <L>
button to add a checkmark <X> to [Low
level format], then select [OK].
zz The card capacity displayed on the card format screen may be smaller than
the capacity indicated on the card.
zz This device incorporates exFAT technology licensed from Microsoft.
66
Perform [Format card] in the following cases:
zz The card is new.
zz The card was formatted by a different camera or a computer.
zz The card is full of images or data.
zz A card-related error is displayed (= 477).
Low-level Formatting
zz Perform low-level formatting if the card’s writing or reading speed seems slow or
if you want to totally erase the data on the card.
zz Since low-level formatting will format all recordable sectors on the card, the
formatting will take slightly longer than normal formatting.
zz You can stop the low-level formatting by selecting [Cancel]. Even in this case,
normal formatting will already be complete and you can use the card as usual.
zz Card’s file formats
SD/SDHC cards will be formatted in FAT32. SDXC cards will be formatted
in exFAT.
When shooting a movie with a card formatted in exFAT, the movie will be
recorded in a single file (instead of being split into multiple files) even if it
exceeds 4 GB. (The movie file will exceed 4 GB.)
zz If you format an SDXC card with this camera and then insert it into another
camera, an error may be displayed and the card may become unusable.
Certain computer operating systems or card readers may not recognize a
card formatted in exFAT.
zz 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, perform
low-level formatting or destroy the card physically to prevent personal data
from being leaked.
67

then shoot again (= 121).
71
FAQ
zz The focus indicator <o> blinks and focus is not achieved.
-- Aim the AF point over an area with good contrast, then press the
shutter button halfway (= 50).
-- If you are too close to the subject, move away and shoot again.
-- Select the AF point nearest to where you want to focus (= 108).
The default setting is Automatic selection AF.
zz Multiple AF points light up simultaneously.
Focus has been achieved at all those points that flash in red. You can
take the picture as long as an AF point covering the target subject is
lighting up.
zz The beeper continues to beep softly. (The focus indicator <o>
does not light up.)
It indicates that the camera is focusing continuously on a moving
subject. (The focus indicator <o> does not light up.) You can take
sharp pictures of a moving subject.
Note that focus lock (= 74) is not possible in this case.
zz Pressing the shutter button halfway does not focus on the subject.
If the focus mode switch of the lens is set to <MF> (manual focus), set
it to <AF> (autofocus).
zz The flash fired even if it was daylight.
For a backlit subject, the flash may fire to help lighten the subject’s dark
areas. To prevent the built-in flash from firing, push it down with your
fingers.
zz The built-in flash fired and the picture came out extremely bright.
Move further away from the subject and shoot. When shooting with
flash, if the subject is too close to the camera, the picture may come out
extremely bright (overexposure).
zz In low light, the built-in flash fired a series of flashes.
Pressing the shutter button halfway may trigger the built-in flash to fire
a series of flashes to assist autofocusing. This is called the AF-assist
beam. Its effective range is approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet. Note that the
built-in flash will make a sound when firing continuously. This is normal
and not a malfunction.
72
zz When flash was used, the bottom part of the picture came out
unnaturally dark.
The shadow of the lens barrel was captured in the picture because
the subject was too close to the camera. Move further away from the
subject and shoot. If a hood is attached to the lens, remove it before
taking the flash picture.
73
Full Auto Techniques (Scene
Intelligent Auto)
Recomposing the Shot
Depending on the scene, positioning the subject toward the left or right
to include a balanced background will result in a picture with better
perspective.
In the <A> mode, pressing the shutter button halfway to focus on a
still subject will lock the focus on that subject. Recompose the shot while
keeping the shutter button pressed halfway, and then press the shutter
button completely to take the picture. This is called “focus lock”. Focus lock
is also possible in other Basic Zone modes (except <8: 5C>).
Shooting a Moving Subject
In the <A> mode, if the subject moves (distance to camera changes)
during or after focusing, AI Servo AF will take effect to focus on the subject
continuously. (The beeper will continue beeping softly.) As long as you keep
the AF point positioned over the subject while pressing the shutter button
halfway, focusing will be continuous. At the decisive moment, press the
shutter button completely to take the picture.

Shooting Portraits
The <2> (Portrait) mode blurs the background to make the human subject
stand out. It also makes skin tones and hair look softer.
Shooting Tips
zz Select the location where the distance between the subject and
the background is the farthest.
The further the distance between the subject and background, the more
blurred the background will look. The subject will also stand out better
against an uncluttered dark background.
zz Use a telephoto lens.
If you have a zoom lens, use the telephoto end to fill the frame with the
subject from the waist up. Move in closer as necessary.
zz Focus on the face.
Check that the AF point covering the face lights up. For close-ups of the
face, focus on the eyes.
zz The default setting is <i> (Continuous shooting). If you keep holding down
the shutter button, you can shoot continuously to capture changes in the
subject’s facial expression and pose.
79
Shooting Portraits with Smooth
Skin Tone
Use the <E> (Smooth skin) mode to make skin look more attractive in
portraits. Images are processed to make skin look smoother.
Shooting Tips
zz Adjust the face size.
Frames are displayed around any main subjects detected for skin
smoothing.
For more effective skin smoothing, you can adjust the size so that the
frame is displayed on the subject’s face.
zz Focus on the face.
Check that the AF point covering the face lights up. For close-ups of the
face, focus on the eyes.
zz Areas other than people’s skin may be modified, depending on the shooting
conditions.
zz In viewfinder shooting against bright backgrounds, or in similar conditions,
skin may not be smoothed as expected, and faces may look too dark. In this
case, adjust [Brightness] or switch to Live View shooting.
80
Shooting Group Photos
Use the <q> (Group Photo) mode to shoot group photos. You can take a
picture in which both the people in the front and people in the back are all
in focus.
Shooting Tips
zz Use a wide-angle lens.
When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to make it easy to get
all the people in the group in focus at once, from the front row to the
back. Also, if you place a little distance between the camera and the
subjects (so that the subjects’ entire bodies are in the shot), the focus
range increases in depth.
zz Take multiple shots of the group.
It is recommended to shoot multiple photos in case some people close
their eyes.
zz See the cautions on page 91.
zz When shooting indoors or in low-light, hold the camera steady or use a tripod
to prevent camera shake.
zz You can adjust the image brightness with [Brightness].
81
Shooting Landscapes
Use the <3> (Landscape) mode for wide scenery or to have everything in
focus from near to far. For vivid blues and greens, and very sharp and crisp
images.
Shooting Tips
zz With a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end.
When using a zoom lens, set the lens to the wide-angle end to make
the objects near and far in focus. It also adds breadth to landscapes.
zz Shooting night scenes.
The <3> mode is also good for night scenes because it disables
the built-in flash. When shooting night scenes, use a tripod to prevent
camera shake.
zz The built-in flash will not fire even in backlit or low-light conditions.
82
Shooting Moving Subjects
Use the <5> (Sports) mode to shoot a moving subject, such as a running
person or a moving vehicle.
Shooting Tips
zz Use a telephoto lens.
Use of a telephoto lens is recommended for shooting from a distance.
zz Use the center AF point to focus.
Aim the center AF point over the subject, then press the shutter button
halfway to autofocus. During autofocusing, the beeper will continue
beeping softly. If focus cannot be achieved, the focus indicator <o>
will blink.
The default setting is <i> (Continuous shooting). At the decisive
moment, press the shutter button completely to take the picture. If you
keep holding down the shutter button, you can shoot continuously while
maintaining autofocus to capture changes in the subject’s movement.
zz The built-in flash will not fire even in backlit or low-light conditions.
zz Under low light where camera shake tends to occur, the viewfinder’s shutter
speed display on the bottom left will blink. Hold the camera steady and shoot.
zz If you are using an external Speedlite, the Speedlite will fire.
83
Photographing Children
When you want to continuously focus on and photograph children running
around, use <C> (Kids). Skin tones will look healthy.
Shooting Tips
zz Use the center AF point to focus.
Aim the center AF point over the subject, then press the shutter button
halfway to autofocus. During autofocusing, the beeper will continue
beeping softly. If focus cannot be achieved, the focus indicator <o>
will blink.
zz Shoot continuously.
The default setting is <i> (Continuous shooting). At the decisive
moment, press the shutter button completely to take the picture. If you
keep holding down the shutter button, you can shoot continuously while
maintaining autofocusing to capture changes in the subject’s facial
expression and movement.
zz While the flash is recharging, “buSy” is displayed in the viewfinder, and a
picture cannot be taken. Take the picture after this display turns off.
zz See the cautions on page 91.
84
Shooting Close-ups
When you want to shoot flowers or small things up close, use the <4>
(Close-up) mode. To make small things appear much larger, use a macro
lens (sold separately).
Shooting Tips
zz Use a simple background.
A simple background makes small objects such as flowers stand out
better.
zz Move in as close as possible to the subject.
Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. Some lenses have
indications such as <0.25m/0.8ft> on them. The lens minimum focusing
distance is measured from the <V> (focal plane) mark on the top of
the camera to the subject. If you are too close to the subject and focus
cannot be achieved, the focus indicator <o> will blink.
If the built-in flash is fired and the bottom part of the picture comes out
unnaturally dark, move away a little from the subject and try again.
zz With a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.
When using a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the subject
look larger.
85
Shooting Food
When shooting food, use <P> (Food). The photo will look bright and
appetizing. Also, depending on the light source, the reddish tinge will be
suppressed in the pictures taken under tungsten lights, etc.
Shooting Tips
zz Change the color tone.
You can change [Color tone]. To increase the food’s reddish tinge, set
it toward [Warm]. Set it toward [Cool] if it looks too red.
zz Avoid using flash.
If you use flash, the light may reflect off the dish or food and results in
unnatural shadows. Shooting without flash is recommended, but be
careful about camera shake under low light.
zz Since this mode lets you shoot the food in appetizing color tones, human
subjects may be photographed with an unsuitable skin tone.
zz The warm color cast of subjects may fade.
zz When multiple light sources are included on the screen, the warm color cast
of the picture may not be reduced.
zz If you use flash, the [Color tone] setting will switch to the standard.
86
Shooting Candlelight Portraits
When you want to photograph a human subject lit in candlelight, use <x>
(Candlelight). The atmosphere of candlelight is reflected in the color tones
of the picture.
Shooting Tips
zz Use the center AF point to focus.
Aim the center AF point in the viewfinder over the subject, then shoot.
zz Prevent camera shake if the numeric display (shutter speed) in the
viewfinder blinks.
Under low light, the viewfinder’s shutter speed display will blink. Hold
the camera steady or use a tripod. When using a zoom lens, you can
reduce the blur caused by camera shake by setting the lens to the
wide-angle end.
zz Change the color tone.
You can change [Color tone]. To increase the candlelight’s reddish
tinge, set it toward [Warm]. Set it toward [Cool] if it looks too red.
zz Live View shooting is not possible.
zz Although flash photography is not possible, raising the flash beforehand is
recommended, to enable firing of the AF-assist beam (= 167).
87
Shooting Night Portraits (With a
Tripod)
When you want to photograph people at night and obtain a natural-looking
night scene in the background, use the <6> (Night Portrait) mode. Using a
tripod is recommended.
Shooting Tips
zz Use a wide-angle lens and a tripod.
When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to obtain a wide
night view. Also, since camera shake is prone to occur with handheld
shooting, use a tripod.
zz Check the subject’s brightness.
Under low light, using flash produces better shots of people.
Note that it is recommended to play back the captured image on
location to check the image brightness. If the subject looks dark, move
nearer and shoot again.
zz Also shoot in other shooting modes.
Since camera shake is prone to occur with night shots, shooting also
with <A> and <F> is recommended.
zz Tell the subject to keep still even after the flash fires.
zz See the cautions on page 91.
88
Shooting Night Scenes (Handheld)
Using a tripod when shooting a night scene gives the best results. However,
the <F> (Handheld Night Scene) mode enables you to shoot night scenes
even while handholding the camera. In this shooting mode, four shots are
taken consecutively for each picture, and the resulting one image with
reduced camera shake is recorded.
Shooting Tips
zz Hold the camera firmly.
During shooting, hold the camera firmly and steadily. In this mode, four
shots are aligned and merged into a single image. However, if there is
significant misalignment in any of the four shots due to camera shake,
they may not align properly in the final image.
zz For shots including people, fire the flash.
For shots that include people, lift the built-in flash with your fingers. To
take a nice portrait, the first shot will use flash. Tell the subject not to
move until all four consecutive shots are taken.
zz Compared to other shooting modes, the shooting range will be smaller.
zz See the cautions on = 91 - = 92.
89
Shooting Backlit Scenes
When shooting a scene having both the bright and dark areas, use the
<G> (HDR Backlight Control) mode. When you take one picture in this
mode, three consecutive shots are taken at different exposures. This results
in one image, with a wide tonal range, that has minimized the clipped
shadows caused by backlighting.
Shooting Tips
zz Hold the camera firmly.
During shooting, hold the camera firmly and steadily. In this mode, three
shots are aligned and merged into a single image. However, if there is
significant misalignment in any of the three shots due to camera shake,
they may not align properly in the final image.
zz Compared to other shooting modes, the shooting range will be smaller.
zz Although flash photography is not possible, raising the flash beforehand is
recommended, to enable firing of the AF-assist beam (= 167).
zz See the cautions on = 91 - = 92.
zz HDR stands for High Dynamic Range.
90
Cautions for <q> Group Photo
zz Since distortion correction is applied, the camera records an image area
narrower than the one seen through the viewfinder. (The image periphery is
slightly trimmed and the resolution looks slightly lowered.) Also, during Live
View shooting, the angle of view changes slightly.
Cautions for <C> Kids
zz During Live View shooting, if flash is fired in continuous shooting, the
continuous shooting speed will decrease. Even if the flash is not fired
for subsequent shots, shooting will still be performed with the decreased
continuous shooting speed.
Cautions for <6> Night Portrait and <F> Handheld Night Scene
zz During Live View shooting, achieving focus may be difficult with point sources
of light, such as may be found in a night scene. In such a case, set the lens’s
focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
zz The Live View image displayed will not look exactly the same as the actual
captured image.
Cautions for <6> Night Portrait
zz During Live View shooting, achieving focus may be difficult when the face of
the subject looks dark. In such a case, set the lens’s focus mode switch to
<MF> and focus manually.
Cautions for <F> Handheld Night Scene and <G> HDR Backlight
Control
zz RAW image quality cannot be set.
zz If you shoot a moving subject, the subject’s movement may leave
afterimages, or the surrounding area of the subject may become dark.
zz The image alignment may not function properly with repetitive patterns
(lattice, stripes, etc.), flat or single-tone images, or images significantly
misaligned due to camera shake.
zz It takes some time to record images to the card since they are merged
after shooting. During the image processing, “buSy” will be displayed in
the viewfinder, and you cannot take another picture until the processing is
complete.
91
Cautions for <F> Handheld Night Scene
zz In flash photography, if the subject is too close to the camera, the picture may
come out extremely bright (overexposure).
zz In flash photography, if you shoot a night scene with limited lights, the shots
may not align correctly. This may result in a blurry picture.
zz In flash photography, if the human subject is close to the background that is
also illuminated by the flash, the shots may not align correctly. This may result
in a blurry picture. Unnatural shadows and unsuitable colors may also appear.
zz Flash coverage angle with an external Speedlite:
-- When using a Speedlite with automatic flash coverage setting, the zoom
position will be fixed to the wide (wide-angle) end regardless of the lens’s
zoom position.
-- When using a Speedlite requiring manual flash coverage setting, set the
flash head to the normal position.
Cautions for <G> HDR Backlight Control
zz The image may not be rendered with a smooth gradation and may look
irregular or have significant noise.
zz HDR Backlight Control may not be effective for excessively backlit scenes or
extremely high-contrast scenes.
zz When shooting subjects that are sufficiently bright as they are, for example for
normally lit scenes, the image may look unnatural due to the HDR effect.
92
Shooting with Creative Filter Effects
In the <v> (Creative filters) mode, you can apply one of ten filter effects
(Grainy B/W*, Soft focus*, Fish-eye effect*, Water painting effect*, Toy
camera effect*, Miniature effect*, HDR art standard, HDR art vivid, HDR
art bold, and HDR art embossed) for shooting. When the camera is set for
Live View shooting, you can see the effect on the screen before you start
shooting. The camera saves only the image with the Creative filter effects
applied.
* For the effects marked with an asterisk, you can also take a picture without a
Creative filter, then apply the effect afterward and save it as a new image (= 329).

During Live View Shooting
zz With Grainy B/W, the grainy effect displayed on the LCD monitor will look
different from the grainy effect recorded in the picture.
zz With the Soft focus and Miniature effects, the blurred effect displayed on the
LCD monitor may look different from the blurred effect recorded in the picture.
zz The histogram is not displayed.
zz Magnified view is not possible.
zz In Creative Zone modes, you can set some Creative filters with Quick Control
(= 93).
Creative Filter Characteristics
zz G Grainy B/W
Creates a grainy black-and-white photo. You can change the black-andwhite effect by adjusting the contrast.
zz W Soft focus
Gives the image a soft look. You can change the degree of softness by
adjusting the blur.
zz X Fish-eye effect
Gives the effect of a fish-eye lens. The image will have a barrel-type
distortion.
Depending on the level of this filter effect, the area trimmed along the
periphery of the image changes. Also, since this filter expands the
center part of the image, the resolution at the center may decrease
depending on the number of recorded pixels. Check the image on the
screen when setting this filter. The AF point will be fixed to the one at
the center.
zz Z Water painting effect
Makes the photo look like a watercolor painting with soft colors. You
can control the color density by adjusting the filter effect. Note that night
scenes or dark scenes may not be rendered with a smooth gradation
and may look irregular or have significant noise.
zz H Toy camera effect
Darkens the photo’s corners and applies a unique color tone that
makes it look as if it was shot by a toy camera. You can change the
color cast by adjusting the color tone.
95
zz c Miniature effect
Creates a diorama effect.
If you want the image center to look sharp, take the picture without
changing any setting.
To move the area that looks sharp (miniature effect frame) in Live View
shooting, see “Adjusting Miniature Effect” (= 98). 1-point AF is used
as the AF method. Positioning the miniature effect frame over the AF
point before shooting is recommended.
During viewfinder shooting, aim the center AF point over the subject
and shoot.
zz A HDR art standard
Clipped highlights and shadows will be reduced. The low contrast and
flat gradation create a painting-like effect. The subject outlines will have
bright (or dark) edges.
zz B HDR art vivid
The colors are more saturated than with [HDR art standard], and the
low contrast and flat gradation create a graphic art effect.
zz C HDR art bold
The colors are the most saturated, making the subject pop out, and the
picture looks like an oil painting.
zz D HDR 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 bolder bright (or dark) edges.
96
Cautions for <A> HDR Art Standard, <B> HDR Art Vivid, <C>
HDR Art Bold, and <D> HDR Art Embossed
zz Compared to other shooting modes, the image area will be smaller.
zz The Live View image displayed with the filter applied will not look exactly the
same as the actual captured image.
zz If you shoot a moving subject, the subject’s movement may leave
afterimages, or the surrounding area of the subject may become dark.
zz The image alignment may not function properly with repetitive patterns
(lattice, stripes, etc.), flat or single-tone images, or images significantly
misaligned due to camera shake.
zz If you are handholding the camera, try to prevent camera shake when
shooting.
zz The color gradation of the sky or white walls may not be reproduced correctly.
Irregular exposure, irregular colors, or noise may appear.
zz Shooting under fluorescent or LED lighting may result in unnatural color
reproduction of the illuminated areas.
zz It takes some time to record images to the card since they are merged
after shooting. During the image processing, “buSy” will be displayed in
the viewfinder, and you cannot take another picture until the processing is
complete.
zz Although flash photography is not possible, in low light, raising the flash
beforehand is recommended, to enable firing of the AF-assist beam
(= 167).
zz For <A> <B> <C> <D>, clipped highlights and shadows will be
reduced for a high dynamic range of tones even with high-contrast scenes.
Three images of different exposures are captured continuously for each
shot and merged into a single image.

the camera will focus only once.
(1)
(2)
zz The dot inside the AF point (1) achieving
focus lights up briefly in red, and
the focus indicator <o> (2) in the
viewfinder will also light up.
zz With evaluative metering, the exposure
setting will be set at the same time focus
is achieved.
zz While you keep holding down the
shutter button halfway, the focus will be
locked. You can then recompose the
shot if desired.
zz If focus cannot be achieved, the focus indicator <o> in the viewfinder will
blink. If this occurs, the picture cannot be taken even if the shutter button is
pressed completely. Recompose the shot or see “Subjects Difficult to Focus
on” (= 110) and try to focus again.
zz If [5: Beep] is set to [Disable], the beeper will not sound when focus is
achieved.
zz 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 useful when you
want to focus on a peripheral subject.
zz When a lens equipped with an electronic manual focusing function is used,
see page 107.
105
AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
This AF operation is suited for moving subjects when the focusing
distance keeps changing. While you hold down the shutter button
halfway, the camera will keep focusing on the subject continuously.
zz The exposure is set at the moment the picture is taken.
zz When the AF point selection (= 108) is automatic, the camera first
uses the center AF point to focus. During autofocusing, if the subject
moves away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long
as the subject is covered by another AF point.
zz With AI Servo AF, the beeper will not sound even when focus is achieved.
Also, the focus indicator <o> in the viewfinder will not light up.
AI Focus AF for Switching the AF Operation
Automatically
AI Focus AF switches the AF operation from [One-Shot AF] to [AI
Servo AF] automatically if a still subject starts moving.
zz After the subject is in focus in One-Shot AF, if the subject starts
moving, the camera will detect the movement, change the AF operation
automatically to AI Servo AF, and start tracking the moving subject.
zz When focus is achieved with AI Focus AF with the Servo operation active, the
beeper will continue beeping softly. However, the focus indicator <o> in the
viewfinder will not light up. Note that focus lock is not possible in this case.
AF-Assist Beam with the Built-in Flash
Under low-light conditions, when you press the shutter button halfway, the
built-in flash may fire a brief burst of flashes. This illuminates the subject to
help autofocusing.
zz AF-assist beam will not be emitted from the built-in flash in <8: 35C>
modes.
zz The AF-assist beam will not be emitted with AI Servo AF operation.
zz The built-in flash makes a sound when firing continuously. This is normal and
not a malfunction.
106
zz The effective range of the AF-assist beam emitted by the built-in flash is
approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet.
zz The AF-assist beam is fired as needed when the built-in flash has been
raised. To prevent it from firing, set [z: AF-assist beam firing] to [Disable]
(= 167).
Setting Lens Electronic MF
With USM and STM lenses equipped with electronic manual focusing
function, you can set whether to use electronic manual focusing in
One-Shot AF mode. The default setting is [Disable after One-Shot AF].

functions of the <S> button and <A> button.
108
Shooting Tips
zz When shooting a portrait up close, use [One-Shot AF] and focus
on the eyes.
Focus on the subject’s eyes before composing your shot.
zz If it is difficult to focus, select the center AF point.
The center AF point has the highest focusing performance among the
nine AF points.
zz For easier tracking of moving subjects, use [Automatic selection]
in conjunction with [AI Servo AF] of AF operation (= 106).
The center AF point will first be used to focus on the subject. During
autofocusing, if the subject moves away from the center AF point, focus
tracking continues as long as the subject is covered by another AF
point.
zz If you use an extender (sold separately) in combination and the open aperture
f/number becomes higher than f/5.6, AF shooting will not be possible (except
in Live View shooting). For details, refer to the extender’s instruction manual.
109
Subjects Difficult to Focus on
Autofocus may fail to achieve focus (focus indicator <o> in the viewfinder
blinks) with special subjects such as the following:
zz Subjects with very low contrast (Example: Blue skies, solid-color flat
surfaces, etc.)
zz Subjects in very low light
zz Strongly backlit or reflective subjects (Example: Car with a highly
reflective body, etc.)
zz Near and distant subjects positioned close to an AF point (Example:
Animals in cages, etc.)
zz Light source such as dots of light positioned close to an AF point
(Example: Night scenes, etc.)
zz Subjects with repetitive patterns (Example: Skyscraper windows,
computer keyboards, etc.)
zz Subjects with finer patterns than an AF point (Example: Faces or
flowers as small as or smaller than an AF point, etc.)
In such cases, focus in either of the following two ways.
(1)With One-Shot AF, focus on an object at the same distance as the
subject and lock the focus, then recompose the shot (= 74).
(2)Set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
zz Depending on the subject, focus may be achieved by slightly recomposing the
shot and performing AF operation again.
zz For conditions that make focusing difficult with AF during Live View shooting
or movie shooting, see page 202.
110
MF: Manual Focus
1 Set the lens’s focus mode switch
to <MF>.
2 Focus on the subject.
zz Focus by turning the lens focusing
ring until the subject looks sharp in the

quality. If you want to crop the image,
selecting a higher quality (more pixels)
such as 73, 83, 1, or D is
recommended.
b is suitable for playing back the
A3 (42x29.7 cm/16.5x11.7 in.) image with a digital photo frame.
A2 (59.4x42 cm/23.4x16.5 in.)
A4 (29.7x21 cm/11.7x8.3 in.)
12.7x8.9 cm/5.0x3.5 in.
zz What’s the difference between 7 and 8?
These settings indicate the different levels of image quality caused by
different compression rates. The 7 setting produces a higher image
quality with the same number of pixels. Although 8 produces a slightly
lower image quality, this allows more images to be saved on the card.
b will be in 7 (Fine) quality.
zz I was able to take more shots than the number of possible shots
indicated.
Depending on the shooting conditions, you may be able to take more
shots than is indicated. On the contrary, it may also be fewer than
indicated. The number of possible shots displayed is only approximate.
zz Does the camera display the maximum burst?
The maximum burst is displayed on the viewfinder’s right side. Since
it is only a single-digit indicator 0 - 9, any number higher than 8 will be
displayed only as “9”. Note that this number will also be displayed even
when no card is installed in the camera. Be careful not to shoot without
a card in the camera.
zz When should I use 1 or D?
1 and D images must be processed on a computer. For details,
see “RAW Images and JPEG Images” (= 117).
116
RAW Images and JPEG Images
zz RAW images are raw data from the image sensor that are recorded to
the card digitally as 1 or D (smaller than 1) files, depending on
your selection.
You can use Digital Photo Professional (EOS software) to process RAW
images. You can make various adjustments to images depending upon
how they will be used and can generate JPEG or other types of images
reflecting the effects of those adjustments.
zz If [–] is set for both the RAW image and JPEG image, 73 will be set.
zz If you select both RAW and JPEG, each time you shoot, the image
will be recorded simultaneously to the card in both RAW and JPEG
at the image-recording qualities that were set. The two images will be
recorded with the same file numbers (1). The file extension (2) is .JPG
for JPEG and .CR3 for RAW.

RAW Image Processing Software
zz To display RAW images on a computer, using Digital Photo Professional
(hereafter DPP, EOS software) is recommended (= 484).
zz Previous versions of DPP Ver.4.x cannot process RAW images taken with this
camera. If a previous version of DPP Ver.4.x is installed on your computer,
obtain and install the latest version of DPP from the Canon website to update
it. (The previous version will be overwritten.) Note that DPP Ver.3.x or earlier
cannot process RAW images taken with this camera.
zz Commercially-available software may not be able to display RAW images
taken with this camera. For compatibility information, contact the software
manufacturer.
117
Setting the ISO Speed for Still PhotosN
Set the ISO speed (image sensor’s sensitivity to light) to suit the ambient
light level. In Basic Zone modes, the ISO speed is set automatically.
Regarding the ISO speed during movie shooting, see = 219, = 219,
and = 222.
1 Press the <g> button.
2 Set the ISO speed.
zz While looking in the viewfinder or at
the LCD monitor, press the <Y> <Z>
keys or turn the <6> dial to select the
desired ISO speed, then press <0>.
zz ISO speed can be set within ISO 100 ISO 25600.
zz With [AUTO] selected, the ISO speed
will be set automatically (= 119).
zz When setting from [ISO speed] in
[z: ISO speed settings] (shown at
left), you can press the <B> button
to specify [AUTO].
ISO Speed Guide
zz Low ISO speeds reduce image noise but may increase the risk of
camera/subject shake or reduce the area in focus (shallower depth of
field), in some shooting conditions.
zz High ISO speeds enable low-light shooting, a larger area in focus
(deeper depth of field), and longer flash range but may increase image
noise.
zz Can also be set from [ISO speed] in [z: ISO speed settings].
zz Under [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)], if [ISO expansion] is set to [1:On],
“H” (equivalent to ISO 51200) can also be selected (= 448).
118
zz If [z: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable] or [Enhanced], ISO 100
and “H” (equivalent to ISO 51200) cannot be selected (= 137).
zz Shooting in high temperatures may result in images that look grainier. Long
exposures can also cause irregular colors in the image.
zz When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (such as dots of light and
banding) may become noticeable.
zz If you use a high ISO speed and flash to shoot a close subject, overexposure
may result.
zz 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.
zz As “H” (equivalent to ISO 51200) is an expanded ISO speed setting, noise
(dots of light, banding, etc.) and irregular colors will be more noticeable, and
the resolution will be lower compared to the standard setting.
Automatic ISO speed setting: ISO [AUTO]
zz If the ISO speed is set to [AUTO],
the actual ISO speed setting will be
displayed in the viewfinder or on the
LCD monitor when you press the shutter
button halfway.
zz When [AUTO] is set, the ISO speed
is indicated in whole-stop increments.
However, the ISO speed is actually set
in finer increments. Therefore, in the
image’s shooting information (= 323),
you may find an ISO speed such as ISO
125 or ISO 640 displayed as the ISO
speed.
119
Setting the Maximum ISO Speed for [AUTO]
For ISO Auto, you can set the maximum ISO speed limit within ISO 400 ISO 25600.
1 Select [zISO speed settings].

Matching the Light Source
N
White balance (WB) is for making the white areas look white. Normally, the
Auto [Q] (Ambience priority) or [Qw] (White priority) setting will obtain
the correct white balance. If natural-looking colors cannot be obtained with
Auto, you can select the white balance to match the light source or set it
manually by shooting a white object.
In Basic Zone modes, [Q] (Ambience priority) is set automatically. (In the
<P> mode, [Qw] (White priority) is set.)
1 Select [White balance].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [White
balance], then press <0>.

zz The “Approx. ****K” (K: Kelvin)
displayed for the white balance settings
<W>, <E>, <R>, <Y> or <U>
is the respective color temperature to
be set.
White Balance
To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of
lighting. With a digital camera, the white for color correction basis is decided
depending on the color temperature of the illumination, and then the color
is adjusted with software to make the white areas look white. With this
function, you can take the pictures with natural color tones.
129
Auto White Balance
With [Q] (Ambience priority), you can increase the intensity of the image’s
warm color cast when shooting a tungsten-light scene. If you select [Qw]
(White priority), you can reduce the intensity of the image’s warm color cast.
If you want to match the Auto white balance of previous EOS camera
models, select [Q] (Ambience priority).
1 Select [White balance].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [White
balance], then press <0>.
BB[White balance] will appear.

of a color temperature conversion filter. (Mired: Unit of measure for
color temperature used to indicate values such as the density of a color
temperature conversion filter.)
White Balance Auto Bracketing
With just one shot, three images with different color tones 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 and
magenta/green bias. This function 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.
B/A bias ±3 levels
zz In step 2 for “White Balance Correction”
(= 133), when you turn the <6>
dial, the “ ” mark on the screen will

balance, 2. Magenta (M) bias, and 3. Green (G) bias.
134
zz During white balance bracketing, the maximum burst will be lower and the
number of possible shots will also decrease to approx. one-third the normal
number.
zz Since three images are recorded for one shot, it takes longer to record the
image to the card.
zz 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.
zz During Live View shooting, the white balance icon will blink.
zz “Bracket” stands for bracketing.
135
Auto Correction of Brightness and N
Contrast
If the image comes out dark or the contrast is low, the brightness and
contrast can be corrected automatically. This function is called Auto Lighting
Optimizer. The default setting is [Standard]. With JPEG images, the
correction is applied when the image is captured.
In Basic Zone modes, [Standard] is set automatically.
1 Select [Auto Lighting Optimizer].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [Auto
Lighting Optimizer], then press
<0>.
2 Select the setting.
zz Select the desired setting, then press

BBThe image will be recorded with
highlight tone priority applied.
zz Noise may increase slightly.
zz [Enhanced] is not available when recording movies.
zz With [Enhanced], results in some scenes may not look as expected.
137
Setting Noise Reduction
N
High ISO Speed Noise Reduction
This function reduces the noise generated in the image. Although noise
reduction is applied at all ISO speeds, it is particularly effective at high ISO
speeds. When shooting at low ISO speeds, the noise in the darker parts of
the image (shadow areas) can further be reduced. Change the setting to
match the noise level.
1 Select [High ISO speed NR].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [High ISO
speed NR], then press <0>.

automatically into a single JPEG image.
If the image quality is set to RAW or RAW+JPEG, you cannot set [Multi
Shot Noise Reduction].
3 Take the picture.
zz The image will be recorded with noise
reduction applied.
zz You can set the camera to display <i> in the viewfinder for when Multi Shot
Noise Reduction is set (= 450).
138
When [Multi Shot Noise Reduction] is Set
zz If there is significant misalignment in the image due to camera shake, the
noise reduction effect may become smaller.
zz If you are handholding the camera, keep it steady to prevent camera shake.
Using a tripod is recommended.
zz If you shoot a moving subject, the moving subject may leave afterimages.
zz The image alignment may not function properly with repetitive patterns
(lattice, stripes, etc.) or flat, single-tone images.
zz If the subject’s brightness changes as the four consecutive shots are taken,
irregular exposure in the image may result.
zz After shooting, it may take some time to record an image to the card after
performing noise reduction and merging the images. During the image
processing, “buSy” will be displayed in the viewfinder, and you cannot take
another picture until the processing is complete.
zz You cannot use AEB and white balance bracketing.
zz If [z: Long exp. noise reduction], AEB, or white balance bracketing is set,
[Multi Shot Noise Reduction] cannot be set.
zz Although flash photography is not possible, in low light, raising the flash
beforehand is recommended, to enable firing of the AF-assist beam.
However, the AF-assist beam will be emitted according to the setting of [z:
AF-assist beam firing].
zz You cannot set [Multi Shot Noise Reduction] for bulb exposures.
zz If you turn off the power, change the shooting mode to a Basic Zone mode,
shoot a bulb exposure, or shoot a movie, the setting will automatically be
changed to [Standard].
zz [z: Dust Delete Data] cannot be set.
Long Exposure Noise Reduction
Noise reduction is possible with images exposed for 1 sec. or longer.
1 Select [Long exp. noise reduction].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [Long exp.
noise reduction], then press <0>.
139
2 Set the desired setting.
zz Select the desired setting, then press
<0>.
zz [Auto]
For exposures of 1 sec. or longer, noise reduction is performed
automatically if noise typical of long exposures is detected. This [Auto]
setting is effective enough in most cases.
zz [Enable]
Noise reduction is performed for all exposures of 1 sec. or longer. The
[Enable] setting may reduce noise that cannot be detected with the
[Auto] setting.
3 Take the picture.
zz The image will be recorded with noise
reduction applied.
zz With [Auto] or [Enable] set, the noise reduction process after the picture is
taken may take the same amount of time as that for the exposure. You cannot
take another picture until the noise reduction process is complete.
zz Images taken at ISO 1600 or higher may look grainier with the [Enable]
setting than with the [Disable] or [Auto] setting.
zz With [Auto] or [Enable] set, if a long exposure is used with the Live View
image displayed, “BUSY” will be displayed during the noise reduction
process. The Live View display will not appear until the noise reduction is
complete. (You cannot take another picture.)

Optimizer” (= 143).
4 Take the picture.
zz The image captured will have lens
aberration corrected.
141
Peripheral Illumination Correction
Vignetting (dark image corners) can be corrected.
zz Depending on shooting conditions, noise may appear on the image periphery.
zz The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.
zz The correction amount applied will be lower than the maximum correction
amount that applied with Digital Photo Professional (EOS software).
zz Peripheral illumination is corrected automatically in Basic Zone modes when
correction data is registered on the camera.
Distortion Correction
Distortion (image warping) can be corrected.
zz To correct distortion, the camera captures a narrower image area than the
area seen when shooting, which crops the image a little and slightly lowers
the apparent resolution.
zz Setting distortion correction may change the angle of view slightly.
zz When you magnify images, distortion correction is not applied to the images
displayed.
zz Images with distortion correction applied will not have the Dust Delete Data
(= 274) appended.
zz AF point display during playback in viewfinder shooting may be slightly
misaligned, due to distortion.
zz Distortion is corrected automatically when <8> mode is set to <q> and
correction data is registered on the camera.

Various aberrations from lens optical characteristics can be corrected, along
with diffraction and low-pass filter-induced loss of clarity.
If [Correction data not available] or [ ] is displayed by [Digital Lens
Optimizer], you can use EOS Utility to add the lens correction data to the
camera. For details, refer to the EOS Utility Instruction Manual.
zz Depending on shooting conditions, noise may be intensified together with the
effects of correction. Image edges may also be emphasized. Adjust Picture
Style sharpness or set [Digital Lens Optimizer] to [Disable] as needed
before shooting.
zz The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.
zz For movie recording, [Digital Lens Optimizer] will not appear. (Correction is
not possible.)
zz Enabling [Digital Lens Optimizer] corrects both chromatic aberration and
diffraction, although these options are not displayed.
zz Digital Lens Optimizer is applied automatically in Basic Zone modes when
correction data is registered on the camera.
Chromatic Aberration Correction
Chromatic aberration (color fringing around subjects) can be corrected.
zz [Chromatic aberr corr] is not displayed when [Digital Lens Optimizer] is
enabled.
143
Diffraction Correction
Diffraction (loss of sharpness caused by the aperture) can be corrected.
zz Depending on shooting conditions, noise may be intensified together with the
effects of correction.
zz The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.
zz For movie shooting, [Diffraction correction] will not appear. (Correction is
not possible.)
zz With “Diffraction correction”, degraded resolution due to the low-pass filter,
etc. is corrected in addition to diffraction. Therefore, correction is effective
even at an aperture close to the open aperture.
zz [Diffraction correction] is not displayed when [Digital Lens Optimizer] is
enabled.
General Cautions for Lens Aberration Correction
zz Peripheral illumination correction, chromatic aberration correction, distortion
correction, and diffraction correction cannot be applied to JPEG images
already taken.
zz When using a non-Canon lens, setting the corrections to [Disable] is
recommended even if [Correction data available] is displayed.
zz Magnifying the periphery of the image may display parts of the image that will
not be recorded.
zz The correction amount will be less (except for diffraction correction) if the lens
used does not have distance information.
General Notes for Lens Aberration Correction
zz The effect of the lens aberration correction varies depending on the lens used
and shooting conditions. Also, the effect may be difficult to discern depending
on the lens used, shooting conditions, etc.
zz If the correction is difficult to discern, magnifying and checking the image after
shooting is recommended.
zz Corrections can be applied even when an extender or life-size converter is
attached.
zz 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] (except for
diffraction correction).
zz If necessary, refer to the EOS Utility Instruction Manual as well.
144
Setting the Color Reproduction
Range
N
The range of reproducible colors is called “color space”. With this camera,
you can set the color space for captured images to sRGB or Adobe RGB.
For normal shooting, sRGB is recommended.
In Basic Zone modes, [sRGB] is set automatically.
1 Select [Color space].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [Color
space], then press <0>.
2 Set the desired color space.
zz Select [sRGB] or [Adobe RGB], then
press <0>.
Adobe RGB
This color space is mainly used for commercial printing and other industrial
uses. This setting is not recommended if you are not familiar with 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 an sRGB
computer environment and with printers not compliant to Design rule for
Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21 or higher). Post-processing of the image
with computer software will therefore be required.
zz If the still photo is shot in the Adobe RGB color space, the first character in
the file name will be an underscore “_”.
zz The ICC profile is not appended. For explanations about the ICC profile, refer
to the Digital Photo Professional Instruction Manual.
145
Advanced Operations for
Photographic Effects
In Creative Zone modes, you can
change various settings of the
camera as you desire to obtain a
wide variety of shooting results, by
selecting the shutter speed and/or
aperture, adjusting the exposure as
you prefer, etc.
zz After you press the shutter button halfway and let it go, the
exposure settings will remain displayed in the viewfinder for
approx. 4 sec. by the metering timer function.
zz The
N icon at the upper right of the page title indicates that
the function is available only in Creative Zone modes.
Main Dial Pointer
The pointer icon <z> displayed
together with the shutter speed or
aperture setting indicates that you
can turn the <6> dial to adjust the
respective setting.
146
Program AE (P Mode)
The camera automatically sets the shutter speed and aperture to suit the
subject’s brightness. This is called Program AE.
* <d> stands for Program.
* AE stands for Auto Exposure.
1 Set the Mode Dial to <d>.
2 Focus on the subject.
zz Look through the viewfinder and aim the
AF point over the subject. Then press
the shutter button halfway.
BBWhen focus is achieved, the dot inside
the AF point achieving focus lights up
briefly in red, and the focus indicator
<o> on the viewfinder’s bottom right
will light up (in One-Shot AF mode).
BBThe shutter speed and aperture will be
set automatically and displayed in the
viewfinder.
3 Check the display.
zz The standard exposure will be obtained
as long as the shutter speed and
aperture displays do not blink.
4 Take the picture.
zz Compose the shot and press the shutter
button completely.
zz If a description of the shooting mode appears in step 1, press <0> to hide
it (= 54).
147
Shooting Tips
zz Change the ISO speed. Use the built-in flash.
To match the subject and ambient lighting level, you can change the
ISO speed (= 118) or use the built-in flash (= 169).
zz Change the program using Program shift.
After pressing the shutter button halfway, turn the <6> dial to change
the shutter speed and aperture setting combination (program). Program
shift is canceled automatically after the picture is taken. Program shift is
not possible with flash.
zz If the “30"” shutter speed and the lowest f/number blink, it
indicates underexposure. Increase the ISO speed or use
flash.
zz If the “4000” shutter speed and the highest f/number blink, it
indicates overexposure. Decrease the ISO speed.
Differences Between <d> and <A> (Scene Intelligent Auto)
zz In the <A> mode, many functions, such as the AF operation and metering
mode, are set automatically to prevent spoiled shots. The functions you can
set are limited. On the other hand, with <d> mode, only the shutter speed
and aperture are set automatically. You can freely set the AF operation,
metering mode, and other functions.
148
Conveying the Subject’s Movement
(Tv Mode)
You can either freeze the action or create motion blur with the <s>
(Shutter-priority AE) mode on the Mode Dial.
* <s> stands for Time value.
Blurred motion
(Slow shutter speed: 1/30 sec.)
Frozen motion
(Fast shutter speed: 1/2000 sec.)
1 Set the Mode Dial to <s>.
2 Set the desired shutter speed.
zz See “Shooting Tips” (= 150) for advice
on setting the shutter speed.
zz Turning the <6> dial clockwise sets
a faster shutter speed, and turning it
counterclockwise sets a slower one.
3 Take the picture.
zz When you focus and press the shutter
button completely, the picture will be
taken at the set shutter speed.
149
Shutter Speed Display
zz The LCD monitor displays the shutter speed as a fraction. However, the
viewfinder displays only the denominator. “0"5” indicates 0.5 sec. and “15"”
is 15 sec.
Shooting Tips
zz To freeze the motion of a fast-moving subject
Use a fast shutter speed such as 1/4000 sec. to 1/500 sec. according to
the speed of the moving subject.
zz To blur a running child or animal and convey an impression of
motion
Use a medium shutter speed such as 1/250 sec. to 1/30 sec. Follow
the moving subject through the viewfinder and press the shutter button
to take the picture. If you use a telephoto lens, hold it steady to prevent
camera shake.
zz To blur a flowing river or fountain
Use a slow shutter speed of 1/30 sec. or slower. Use a tripod to prevent
hand-held camera shake.
zz Set the shutter speed so that the aperture display does not blink.
If you press the shutter button halfway and change
the shutter speed with the aperture displayed, the
aperture value will also change to maintain the same
exposure (amount of light reaching the image sensor).
In this operation, if the aperture value exceeds the
adjustable range, it will blink to indicate that the
standard exposure cannot be obtained.
If the exposure will be too dark, the maximum aperture (lowest f/
number) will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial counterclockwise
to set a slower shutter speed or increase the ISO speed.
If the exposure will be too bright, the minimum aperture (highest f/
number) will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial clockwise to set
a faster shutter speed or decrease the ISO speed.
150
Using the Built-in Flash
To obtain a correct flash exposure on the main subject, the flash output will
be set automatically (autoflash) to match the automatically-set aperture.
151
Changing the Depth of Field
(Av Mode)
To blur the background or to make everything near and far look sharp, set
the Mode Dial to <f> (Aperture-priority AE) to adjust the depth of field
(range of acceptable focus).
*<f> stands for Aperture value (the size of the lens diaphragm opening).
Blurred background
(With a low aperture f/number: f/5.6)
Sharp foreground and background
(With a high aperture f/number: f/32)
1 Set the Mode Dial to <f>.
2 Set the desired aperture.
zz The higher the f/number, the wider the depth
of field where sharper focus is obtained in
both the foreground and background.
zz Turning the <6> dial clockwise sets a
higher f/number (smaller aperture opening),
and turning it counterclockwise sets a lower
f/number (larger aperture opening).
3 Take the picture.
zz When you focus and press the shutter
button completely, the picture will be
taken with the set aperture.
152
Aperture Value Display
zz The higher the f/number, the smaller the aperture opening will be. The f/
number displayed will differ depending on the lens. If no lens is attached to
the camera, “00” will be displayed for the aperture.
Shooting Tips
zz When using an aperture with a high f/number or shooting in low
light scenes, note that camera shake can occur.
A higher aperture f/number will make the shutter speed slower. Under
low light, the shutter speed can be as long as 30 sec. In such cases,
increase the ISO speed and hold the camera steady or use a tripod.
zz The depth of field will vary depending not only on the aperture, but
also on the lens and on the subject distance.
Since wide-angle lenses have a wide depth of field (range of
acceptable focus in front of and behind the point of focus), you need
not set a high aperture f/number to obtain a sharp picture from the
foreground to the background. On the other hand, a telephoto lens has
a narrow depth of field.
And the closer the subject, the narrower the depth of field. A farther
subject will have a wider depth of field.
zz Set the aperture so that the shutter speed display does not blink.
If you press the shutter button halfway and change the
aperture with the shutter speed displayed, the shutter
speed will also change to maintain the same exposure
(amount of light reaching the image sensor). In this
operation, if the shutter speed exceeds the adjustable
range, it will blink to indicate that the standard
exposure cannot be obtained.
If the picture will be too dark, the “30"” (30 sec.) shutter speed display
will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial counterclockwise to set a
lower f/number or increase the ISO speed.
If the picture will be too bright, the “4000” (1/4000 sec.) shutter speed
display will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial clockwise to set a
higher f/number or decrease the ISO speed.
153
Using the Built-in Flash
To obtain a correct flash exposure, the flash output will be automatically
controlled (autoflash) to match the set aperture. The shutter speed will be
set automatically to match the brightness of the scene (= 176).
In low light, the main subject is exposed with the autoflash, and the
background is exposed with a slow shutter speed set automatically. The
picture comes out with the standard exposure for both the subject and
background with a touch of the atmosphere (automatic slow-speed flash
sync). If you are handholding the camera, keep it steady to prevent camera
shake. Using a tripod is recommended to prevent camera shake.
Depth-of-Field Preview
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.
You can check the depth of field by pressing the <0> or <U> button
when they are configured as described below. The range in focus can be
clearly seen on Live View images as you adjust the aperture value while
holding down the <0> or <U> button.
-- In [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)], set [Assign SET button] to [7:Depthof-field preview].
-- In [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)], set [DISP button function] to
[1:Depth-of-field preview].
154
Manual Exposure (M Mode)
You can set both the shutter speed and aperture manually as desired. While
referring to the exposure level indicator in the viewfinder, you can set the
exposure as desired. This method is called manual exposure.
* <a> stands for Manual.
1 Set the Mode Dial to <a>.
2 Set the ISO speed (= 118).
3 Set the shutter speed and aperture.

zz Check the exposure level indicator
and set the desired shutter speed and
aperture.
zz If the exposure level exceeds ±2 stops
from the standard exposure, the end of
the exposure level indicator will display
<I> or <J> in the viewfinder. (On the
LCD monitor, if the exposure level
exceeds ±3 stops, <I> or <J> will be
displayed.)
zz The set exposure setting will not be maintained for movie shooting.
Exposure Compensation with ISO Auto
If the ISO speed is set to [AUTO] for manual exposure shooting, you can
set exposure compensation (= 160) as follows:
zz [z: Expo.comp./AEB]
zz [5:Expo comp (hold btn, turn S)] with [Assign SET button] under
[5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)] (= 452)
zz Quick Control (= 57)
zz If ISO Auto is set, the ISO speed setting will change to obtain the standard
exposure with the set shutter speed and aperture. Therefore, you may
not obtain the desired exposure effect. In such a case, set the exposure
compensation.
zz If flash is used when ISO Auto is set, exposure compensation will not be
applied even if an exposure compensation amount is set.
zz Under [z: Auto Lighting Optimizer], if the checkmark [X] for [Disable
during man expo] is removed, Auto Lighting Optimizer can be set even in
the <a> mode (= 136).
zz When ISO Auto is set, you can press the <A> button to lock the ISO speed.
zz If you press the <A> button and recompose the shot, you can see the
exposure level difference on the exposure level indicator compared to when
the <A> button was pressed.
zz If exposure compensation (= 160) was applied in <d>, <s>, or <f>
mode, the exposure compensation amount already set will still be maintained
when the shooting mode is switched to <a> with ISO Auto set.
156
Using the Built-in Flash
To obtain a correct flash exposure on the main subject, the flash output will
be set automatically (autoflash) to match the manually-set aperture. Note
that the range of settable shutter speed will be limited within 1/200 sec. to
30 sec. or to bulb.
BULB: Long (Bulb) Exposures
(1)
A bulb exposure keeps the shutter
open for as long as you hold down the
shutter button. It can be used to shoot
fireworks and other subjects requiring long
exposures.
In step 3 on page 155, turn the <6>
dial to the left to set <BULB>. The elapsed
exposure time (1) will be displayed on the
LCD monitor.
zz Do not point the camera toward an intense light source, such as the sun or an
intense artificial light source. Doing so may damage the image sensor or the
camera’s internal components.
zz Since long bulb exposures produce more noise than usual, the image may
look slightly grainy.
zz If ISO Auto is set, the ISO speed will be ISO 400.
zz When shooting bulb exposures, if you use both the self-timer and mirror
lockup, keep pressing the shutter button completely (for 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.
zz You can reduce the noise due to long exposures by setting [z: Long exp.
noise reduction] to [Auto] or [Enable] (= 139).
zz For bulb exposures, using a tripod and a remote switch (sold separately,
= 463) is recommended.
zz You can also use Wireless Remote Control BR-E1 (sold separately, = 463)
for bulb exposures. When you press the BR-E1’s release button (transmit
button), the bulb exposure will start immediately or 2 sec. later. Press the
button again to stop the bulb exposure.
zz You can turn off the elapsed exposure time display by pressing the <B>
button.
157
Changing the Metering Mode
N
Four methods (metering modes) to measure the subject’s brightness are
provided. Normally, evaluative metering is recommended. In Basic Zone
modes, evaluative metering is set automatically. (In the <8: x> and
<v: X> modes, center-weighted average metering is set.)
1 Select [Metering mode].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [Metering
mode], then press <0>.
2 Set the metering mode.
zz Select the desired metering mode, then
press <0>.
q Evaluative metering
General-purpose metering mode suited even for
backlit subjects. The camera adjusts the exposure
automatically to suit the scene.
w Partial metering
Effective where there are much brighter lights around
the subject due to backlight, etc. The gray area in the
left figure is approximately where the brightness is
metered to obtain the standard exposure.
r Spot metering
Effective when metering a specific part of the subject or
scene. The gray area in the left figure is approximately
where the brightness is metered to obtain the standard
exposure. This metering mode is for advanced users.
158
e Center-weighted average metering
The metering is averaged for the entire scene with the
screen center weighted more heavily. This metering
mode is for advanced experts.
zz With q (Evaluative metering), the exposure setting will be locked when you
press the shutter button halfway and focus is achieved. In the w (Partial
metering), r (Spot metering), and e (Center-weighted average metering)
modes, the exposure is set at the moment the picture is taken. (Pressing the
shutter button halfway does not lock the exposure.)
159
Setting the Desired Exposure
Compensation
N
Set exposure compensation if the results of shooting without using the flash
are not as bright as expected. This feature can be used in Creative Zone
modes (except <a>). You can set the exposure compensation up to ±5
stops* in 1/3-stop increments.
If the <a> mode and ISO Auto are both set, see page 156 to set the
exposure compensation.
*In Live View shooting/movie shooting, or when [s: Shooting screen] is set to
[Guided], exposure compensation can be set up to ±3 stops.
1 Check the exposure level indicator.
zz Press the shutter button halfway and
check the exposure level indicator in the
viewfinder or on the LCD monitor.
Increased exposure for
a brighter image
2 Set the compensation amount.
Decreased exposure for
a darker image
3 Take the picture.
zz If the exposure is too dark, turn the
<6> dial clockwise while holding
down the <g> button (for increased
exposure).
zz If the exposure is too bright, turn the
<6> dial counterclockwise while
holding down the <g> button (for
decreased exposure).
zz To cancel the exposure compensation,
set the compensation amount back to
<E>.
zz If [z: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (= 136) is set to any setting other than
[Disable], the image may still look bright even if a decreased exposure
compensation for a darker image is set.
zz The set exposure compensation level will not be applied to movie shooting.
160
zz When you set the power switch to <2>, the exposure compensation setting
will be canceled.
zz The exposure compensation amount displayed in the viewfinder goes up to
only ±2 stops. If the exposure compensation amount exceeds ±2 stops, the
end of the exposure level indicator will display <I> or <J>.
zz If you want to set exposure compensation exceeding ±2 stops, setting it with
[z: Expo.comp./AEB] (= 162) is recommended.
161
Auto Exposure Bracketing
N
This feature takes exposure compensation a step further by varying the
exposure automatically in the range of ±2 stops in 1/3-stop increments with
three shots as shown below. You can then choose the best exposure.
This is called AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing).
Standard exposure
Darker exposure
(Decreased exposure)
Brighter exposure
(Increased exposure)
1 Select [Expo.comp./AEB].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [Expo.
comp./AEB], then press <0>.
2 Set the AEB range.

zz The AEB setting will also be canceled automatically if the power switch
is set to <2>, flash recharging is complete, etc.
Shooting Tips
zz Using AEB with continuous shooting
If you set the drive mode to <i> or <M> (= 112) and press the
shutter button completely, the three bracketed shots will be taken
consecutively in the sequence of standard exposure, decreased
exposure, and increased exposure, and then the camera will
automatically stop shooting.
zz Using AEB with single shooting (u/B)
Press the shutter button three times to take the three bracketed
shots. The shots will be taken in the sequence of standard exposure,
decreased exposure, and increased exposure.
zz Using AEB with the self-timer or a remote controller (sold
separately)
With the self-timer (<m> <l>), Wireless Remote Control BR-E1
<Q> or Remote Switch RS-60E3, you can take three consecutive
shots after a 10-sec. or 2-sec. delay. With <q> (= 206) set, the
number of consecutive shots will be three times the number set.
zz During AEB, <A> and AEB range in the viewfinder will blink.
zz AEB cannot be used with flash, when [Multi Shot Noise Reduction] is set,
for shooting with a Creative filter, or with bulb exposures.
zz If [z: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (= 136) is set to any setting other than
[Disable], the effect of AEB may be reduced.
163
Locking the Exposure
N
You can lock the exposure when you want to set the focus and exposure
separately or when you are to take multiple shots at the same exposure
setting. Press the <A> button to lock the exposure, then recompose and

Shooting Tips
zz Using the self-timer <m>, <l> with mirror lockup
When you press the shutter button completely, the mirror locks up. The
picture will be then taken 10 sec. or 2 sec. later.
zz Remote control shooting
Since you do not touch the camera when the picture is taken, remote
control shooting together with mirror lockup can further reduce the
camera vibration blur (= 463).
With Wireless Remote Control BR-E1 (sold separately) set to the 2-sec.
delay, press the release button to lock up the mirror, and the picture will
be taken 2 sec. after the mirror lockup.
With Remote Switch RS-60E3 (sold separately), press the release
button completely to lock up the mirror, and press it completely again to
take the picture.
165
zz Do not point the camera toward an intense light source, such as the sun or an
intense artificial light source. Doing so may damage the image sensor or the
camera’s internal components.
zz In very bright light, such as at the beach or a ski slope on a sunny day, take
the picture promptly after mirror lockup is stabilized.
zz When shooting with mirror lockup, if you use both the self-timer and bulb
exposures, keep pressing the shutter button completely (for self-timer delay
time + bulb exposure time). If you let go of the shutter button during the selftimer countdown, there will be a shutter-release sound, but no picture will be
taken.
zz During mirror lockup, shooting function settings, menu operations, etc. are
disabled.
zz Even if you set the drive mode to <i>, <M>, or <q>, the camera will still
shoot in single shooting mode.
zz When [z: High ISO speed NR] is set to [Multi Shot Noise Reduction],
four consecutive shots will be taken for a single picture regardless of the
[Mirror lockup] setting.
zz If approx. 30 sec. elapse after the mirror has locked up, it will go back down
automatically. Pressing the shutter button completely locks up the mirror
again.
zz When shooting with mirror lockup, using a tripod and Wireless Remote
Control BR-E1 (sold separately, = 463) or Remote Switch RS-60E3 (sold

169
Shooting Tips
zz In bright light, decrease the ISO speed.
If the exposure setting in the viewfinder blinks, decrease the ISO
speed.
zz Detach the lens hood. Do not get too close to the subject.
If the lens has a hood attached or you are too close to the subject, the
bottom of the picture may look dark due to the obstructed flash light.
For important shots, play back the image and check to make sure the
picture does not look unnaturally dark at the bottom part.
170
Flash Exposure Compensation
N
Set the flash exposure compensation if the brightness of the subject does
not come out as desired (so you want to adjust the flash output) in flash
photography. You can set the flash exposure compensation up to ±2 stops
in 1/3-stop increments.
1 Select [Flash control].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [Flash
control], then press <0>.
2 Select [Built-in flash settings].
3 Select [2exp. comp.].
4 Set the compensation amount.
zz If the exposure is too dark, press the
<Z> key (for increased exposure).
If the exposure is too bright, press the
<Y> key (for decreased exposure).
BBWhen you press the shutter button
halfway, the <y> icon will appear in
the viewfinder.
zz After taking the picture, cancel the
flash exposure compensation by
setting it back to 0.
171
zz If [z: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (= 136) is set to any setting other than
[Disable], the image may still look bright even if a decreased flash exposure
compensation is set.
zz If flash exposure compensation is set with an external Speedlite (sold
separately, = 174), you cannot set the flash exposure compensation with
the camera (Quick Control or External flash function settings). If it is set with
both the camera and external Speedlite, the Speedlite’s setting overrides the
camera’s.
zz The compensation amount will be retained even after you set the power
switch to <2>.
172
Locking the Flash Exposure (FE lock)
N
If the subject is at the edge of the screen, and you use flash, the subject
may turn out to be too bright or dark depending on the background, etc.
Use FE lock in such a case. After setting the flash output for the appropriate
subject brightness, you can recompose (put the subject toward the side) and
shoot. This feature can also be used with a Canon EL/EX-series Speedlite.
* FE stands for Flash Exposure.
1 Raise the flash with your fingers.
zz Press the shutter button halfway and
look in the viewfinder to check that the
<D> icon is lit.
2 Focus on the subject.
3 Press the <A> button.
zz Aim the viewfinder center over the
subject where you want to lock the flash
exposure, then press the <A> button.
BBThe flash will fire a preflash and the
required flash output is calculated and
retained in memory.
BBIn the viewfinder, “FEL” is displayed for
a moment and <d> will light up.
zz Each time you press the <A> button,
a preflash is fired and the required flash
output is calculated and retained in memory.
4 Take the picture.
zz Compose the shot and press the shutter
button completely.
BBThe flash is fired, and the picture is
taken.
zz If the subject is too far away and the captured image comes out dark, the
<D> icon will blink. Move closer to the subject and repeat steps 2 to 4.
zz FE lock is not possible during Live View shooting.
173
Using an External Speedlite
EOS-dedicated, EL/EX-series Speedlites
Using an EL/EX-series Speedlite (sold separately) makes flash photography
easy.
For operation procedures, refer to the EL/EX-series Speedlite’s
Instruction Manual.
zz Functions are limited when using EX series Speedlites that are not
compatible with flash function settings.
zz Non-EL/EX series Canon Speedlites will not fire.
zz If the camera is used with a flash unit or flash accessory dedicated to another
camera brand, the camera not only may not operate properly, but malfunction
may result.
174
Setting the Flash Function
With the built-in flash or an EL/EX-series, external Speedlite compatible
with the flash function settings, you can use the camera’s menu screen to
set flash functions and the external Speedlite’s Custom Functions.
If you use an external Speedlite, attach the Speedlite to the camera
and turn on the Speedlite before setting the flash functions.
For details on the external Speedlite’s flash functions, refer to the

based on shooting conditions.
Set to [D] to have the flash always fire
when you shoot.
Select [b] (in Creative Zone modes) to
keep the flash off, or if you will use the
AF‑assist beam.
zz Even if [Flash firing] is set to [b], if focus is difficult to achieve in low
light, the flash may still fire a series of flashes (“AF-Assist Beam Settings”
(= 167)). To prevent the built-in flash from firing, push it down with your
fingers.
175
N
E-TTL II Flash Metering
For normal flash exposures, set it to
[Evaluative]. If [Average] is set, the flash
exposure will be averaged for the entire
metered scene. Depending on the scene,
flash exposure compensation may be
necessary. This setting is for advanced
users.
N
Slow Synchro
You can set the flash-sync speed for flash
photography in <f> or <d> mode.
] 1/200-30sec. auto
zz [
The flash sync speed is set automatically within a range of 1/200 sec.
to 30 sec. to suit the scene’s brightness. Slow-sync shooting is used
under some shooting conditions, in low-light locations, and shutter
speed is automatically lowered.
] 1/200-1/60sec. auto
zz [
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.
] 1/200 sec. (fixed)
zz [
The flash sync speed is fixed at 1/200 sec. This more effectively
prevents subject blur and camera shake than with [1/200-1/60sec.
auto]. However, in low light, the subject’s background will come out
darker than with [1/200-1/60sec. auto].
zz To use slow-sync shooting, set to [1/200-30sec. auto].
zz High-speed sync is not available in <f> or <d> mode when set to [1/200

zz Flash mode
When using an external Speedlite, you can select the flash mode to suit
your desired photographic effects.
zz [E-TTL II flash metering] is the
standard mode of EL/EX‑series
Speedlites for automatic flash
photography.
zz [Manual flash] is the mode for
advanced users who want to set
the [Flash output] (1/1 to 1/128)
themselves.
zz Regarding other flash modes, refer to
the instruction manual of a Speedlite
compatible with the respective flash
mode.
zz 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 be fired 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 a more natural feel. When second-curtain synchronization is
set together with [E-TTL II flash metering], the flash will be fired twice
in a row: once when you press the shutter button completely and once
right before the end of the exposure. Also, if the shutter speed is 1/100
sec. or faster, first-curtain synchronization will be applied automatically.
If an external Speedlite is attached, you can also select [High-speed
synchronization] (e). For details, refer to the Speedlite’s instruction
manual.
zz Flash exposure compensation
For details, see “Flash Exposure Compensation” (= 171).

189
Creative Filter Characteristics
zz G Grainy B/W
Creates a grainy black-and-white photo. You can change the black-andwhite effect by adjusting the contrast.
zz W Soft focus
Gives the image a soft look. You can change the degree of softness by
adjusting the blur.
zz X Fish-eye effect
Gives the effect of a fish-eye lens. The image will have a barrel-type
distortion.
Depending on the level of this filter effect, the area trimmed along the
periphery of the image changes. Also, since this filter expands the
center part of the image, the resolution at the center may decrease
depending on the number of recorded pixels. Check the image on the
screen when setting this filter. The AF point will be fixed to the one at
the center.
zz Y Art bold effect
Makes the photo look like an oil painting and the subject look more
three-dimensional. You can adjust the contrast and saturation. Note
that subjects such as the sky or white walls may not be rendered with a
smooth gradation and may look irregular or have significant noise.
zz Z Water painting effect
Makes the photo look like a watercolor painting with soft colors. You
can control the color density by adjusting the filter effect. Note that night
scenes or dark scenes may not be rendered with a smooth gradation
and may look irregular or have significant noise.
zz H Toy camera effect
Darkens the photo’s corners and applies a unique color tone that
makes it look as if it was shot by a toy camera. You can change the
color cast by adjusting the color tone.
190
zz c Miniature effect
Creates a diorama effect.
If you want the image center to look sharp, take the picture without
changing any setting.
To move the area where you want to look sharp (miniature effect
frame), see “Adjusting Miniature Effect” (= 98). 1-point AF is used as
the AF method. Positioning the miniature effect frame over the AF point
before shooting is recommended.
zz With Grainy B/W, the grainy effect displayed on the LCD monitor will look
different from the grainy effect recorded in the picture.
zz With the Soft focus and Miniature effect, the blurred effect displayed on the
LCD monitor may look different from the blurred effect recorded in the picture.
You can check blurring before you shoot by pressing the <0> or <U>
button when they are configured as described below.
-- In [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)], set [Assign SET button] to [7:Depthof-field preview].
-- In [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)], set [DISP button function] to [1:Depthof-field preview].

You can change the image’s aspect ratio. [3:2] is set by default. The
area surrounding the Live View image is masked in black when the
following aspect ratios are set: [4:3] [16:9] [1:1].
JPEG images will be saved with the set aspect ratio. RAW images will
always be saved with the [3:2] aspect ratio. The selected aspect ratio
information is added to the RAW image file. When you process the
RAW image with Digital Photo Professional (EOS software), this allows
you to generate an image with the same aspect ratio that was set for
shooting. In the case of the [4:3], [16:9], and [1:1] aspect ratios, the
lines to indicate the aspect ratio will appear during image playback, but
they are not actually drawn on the image.

General Live View Shooting Cautions
Image Quality
zz When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (such as dots of light and
banding) may become noticeable.
zz Shooting in high temperatures may cause noise and irregular colors in the
image.
zz If Live View shooting is used continuously for a prolonged period, the
camera’s internal temperature may rise, and image quality may deteriorate.
Always exit Live View shooting when you are not shooting.
zz If you shoot a long exposure while the camera’s internal temperature is high,
image quality may deteriorate. Exit Live View shooting and wait a few minutes
before shooting again.
White <s> and Red <E> Internal Temperature Warning Icons
zz If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged Live View
shooting or under a high ambient temperature, a white <s> or red <E> icon
will appear.
zz The white <s> icon indicates that the image quality of still photos will
deteriorate. It is recommended that you temporarily exit Live View shooting
and allow the camera to cool down before shooting again.
zz The red <E> icon indicates that the Live View shooting will soon stop
automatically. If this happens, you will not be able to shoot again until the
camera’s internal temperature decreases. Temporarily exit the Live View
shooting or turn off the power and let the camera rest for a while.
zz Using Live View shooting at a high temperature for a prolonged period will
cause the <s> or <E> icon to appear earlier. When you are not shooting,
always turn off the camera.
zz If the camera’s internal temperature is high, the quality of images shot with a
high ISO speed or long exposure may deteriorate even before the white <s>
icon is displayed.
Shooting Results
zz 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 red. Even if you take
the picture in magnified view, the image will be captured with the image area
of the normal view.
zz If you use a TS-E lens (except the TS-E17mm f/4L or TS-E24mm f/3.5L II)
for shifting or tilting the lens or if you use an extension tube, the standard
exposure may not be obtained, or an irregular exposure may result.
215
General Live View Shooting Cautions
Live View Image
zz Under low- or bright-light conditions, the Live View image may not reflect the
brightness of the captured image.
zz 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 less noise. (The image quality of the Live View image is different
from that of the recorded image.)
zz If the light source (illumination) within the image changes, the screen may
flicker. If this happens, exit Live View shooting and resume Live View shooting
under the actual light source.
zz If you point the camera in a different direction, it may throw off the Live
View image’s correct brightness momentarily. Wait until the brightness level
stabilizes before shooting.
zz If there is a very bright light source in the image, the bright area may appear
black on the LCD monitor. However, the actual captured image will correctly
show the bright area.
zz In low light, if you set the [5: Disp. brightness] to a bright setting, noise or
irregular colors may appear in the Live View image. However, the noise or
irregular colors will not be recorded in the captured image.
zz When you magnify the image, the image sharpness may look more
pronounced than in the actual image.
zz If the shutter speed is 1 sec. or slower, “BUSY” is displayed on the LCD
monitor, and the Live View display will not appear until the exposure is
complete.
Custom Functions
zz During Live View shooting, certain Custom Function settings will not take
effect.
Lens and Flash
zz If the attached lens has an Image Stabilizer and you set the Image Stabilizer
(IS) switch to <1>, 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 decrease the number of possible shots depending on
the shooting conditions. When the Image Stabilizer is not necessary, such as
when using a tripod, it is recommended that you set the IS switch to <2>.
zz The focus preset function is possible for Live View shooting only when using
a (super) telephoto lens equipped with the focus preset mode released in and
after the second half of 2011.
zz FE lock will not work if the built-in flash is used. FE lock and modeling flash
will not work if an external Speedlite is used.
216
Shooting Movies
Movie shooting is enabled by setting the
power switch to <k>.
zz For cards that can record movies, see page 7.
zz If you handhold the camera and shoot movies, camera shake

221
ISO Speed During Manual Exposure Shooting
zz With [AUTO], the ISO speed will be set automatically within ISO 100–
ISO 12800. The maximum limit varies depending on the [Max for Auto]
setting in [z:kISO Auto] setting (= 254). Note that when the
camera is set for 4K movies, ISO speed is ISO 100–ISO 6400.
zz You can set the ISO speed manually within ISO 100–ISO 12800 in
whole-stop increments. Under [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)], if you
set [ISO expansion] to [1:On], the maximum limit of the manual
ISO speed setting range will be expanded so you can also select H
(equivalent to ISO 25600). Note that when the camera is set for 4K
movies, ISO speed is ISO 100–ISO 6400.
zz If [z: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], the ISO speed
will be ISO 200–ISO 12800. Note that when the camera is set for 4K
movies, ISO speed is ISO 100–ISO 6400.
zz Since shooting a movie at ISO 25600 equivalent may result in much noise, it
is designated as an expanded ISO speed (displayed as “H”).
zz When switching from still photo shooting to movie shooting, check the camera
settings again before shooting movies.
zz Changing the shutter speed or aperture during movie shooting is not
recommended since the changes in the exposure will be recorded.
zz When shooting a movie of a moving subject, a shutter speed of approx.
1/30 sec. to 1/125 sec. is recommended. The faster the shutter speed, the
less smooth the subject’s movement will look.
zz If you change the shutter speed while shooting under fluorescent or LED
lighting, image flicker may be recorded.
zz If you set [5:Expo comp (hold btn, turn S)] with [Assign SET button]

Still Photo Shooting
Still photos cannot be taken during movie shooting.
To take still photos, stop the movie shooting and take still photos using
viewfinder shooting or Live View shooting.
Cautions for Movie Shooting
zz Do not point the camera toward an intense light source, such as the sun or an
intense artificial light source. Doing so may damage the image sensor or the
camera’s internal components.
zz When you press the shutter button halfway to autofocus during movie
shooting, the following phenomena may occur.
-- Focus may become far off momentarily.
-- The brightness of the recorded movie may change.
-- The recorded movie may be momentarily still.
-- The movie may record the lens mechanical sound.
zz If <Q> or <Qw> is set and the ISO speed or aperture changes during
movie shooting, the white balance may also change.
zz If you shoot a movie under fluorescent or LED lighting, the movie image may
flicker.
zz Shooting a few test movies is recommended if you intend to perform zooming
during movie shooting. Zooming during movie shooting may result in
recording of changes in exposure or mechanical sound of the lens, or images
may be out of focus.
zz During movie shooting, you cannot magnify the image even if you press the
<u> button.
zz Be careful not to cover the built-in microphones (= 218) with your fingers,
etc.
zz If you connect or disconnect the HDMI cable during movie shooting, the
movie shooting will end.
zz General Movie Shooting Cautions are on = 257–= 258.
zz If necessary, also read “General Live View Shooting Cautions” on
= 215–= 216.
Warnings:
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 or blistering due to low-temperature contact burns. Using a
tripod is recommended when using the camera in very hot places or for people with
circulation problems or poor skin sensation.
225
Notes for Movie Shooting
zz Each time you shoot a movie, a new movie file is created on the card.
zz The movie’s field of view coverage for recording 4K, Full HD, and HD movies
is approx. 100%.
zz Stereo sound is recorded by the camera’s built-in microphones.
zz If you connect the Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1 (sold separately)
to the camera’s external microphone IN terminal (= 28), the external
microphone is given the priority.
zz Most external microphones equipped with a 3.5 mm diameter mini plug can
be used.
zz The focus preset function is possible for movie shooting when using a (super)
telephoto lens equipped with the focus preset mode, released in and after the
second half of 2011.
226

227
Setting the Movie Recording Size
With [z: Movie rec. size], you can set the
movie recording size (image size, frame
rate, and compression method) and other
functions.
Movies will be recorded in the MP4 format.
zz Image size
L 3840x2160
The movie is recorded in 4K quality. The aspect ratio is 16:9.
L 1920x1080
Full High-Definition (Full HD) recording quality. The aspect ratio is 16:9.
w 1280x720
High-Definition (HD) recording quality. The aspect ratio is 16:9.
zz Normal playback of 4K and L8/7 movies may not be possible on
other devices, because playback is processing-intensive.
zz The frame rate displayed on the movie recording size screen switches
depending on whether [5: Video system] is set to [For NTSC] or [For PAL].
zz If you change the [5: Video system] setting, set the movie recording size
again.
zz Movies cannot be recorded in VGA quality.
zz 4K movie shooting
-- Recording 4K movies requires a high-performance card.
-- Recording 4K movies greatly increases the processing load, which
may cause the camera’s internal temperature to increase faster or
become higher than for regular movies.
-- From a 4K movie, you can select any frame to save as an approx.
8.3-megapixel (3840×2160) JPEG still image to the card (= 301).
zz Contrast detection is used to focus when recording 4K movies. Focusing may
take longer and be more difficult than when recording HD or Full HD movies.
228
zz Frame rate (fps: frame per second)
6 29.97fps/8 59.94fps
For areas where the TV system is NTSC (North America, Japan, South
Korea, Mexico, etc.).
5 25.00fps/7 50.00fps
For areas where the TV system is PAL (Europe, Russia, China,
Australia, etc.).
4 23.98fps
Mainly for motion pictures.
zz Compression method
X IPB (Standard)
Compresses multiple frames at a time efficiently for recording.
X v IPB (Light)
Since the movie is recorded at a low bit rate for playback on various
devices, the file size will be smaller than with IPB (Standard).
Therefore, you can shoot longer than with IPB (Standard).
zz Movie recording format
C MP4
All movies you shoot with the camera are recorded as movie files in
MP4 format (file extension “.MP4”).
Movie Files Exceeding 4 GB
Even if you shoot a movie exceeding 4 GB, you can keep shooting without
interruption.
zz Using SD/SDHC cards formatted with the camera
If you use the camera to format an SD/SDHC card, the camera will
format it in FAT32.
With a FAT32-formatted card, if you shoot a movie and the file size
exceeds 4 GB, a new movie file will be created automatically.
When you play back the movie, you will have to play each movie
file individually. Movie files cannot be played back automatically in
consecutive order. After the movie playback ends, select the next movie
and play it back.
zz Using SDXC cards formatted with the camera
If you use the camera to format an SDXC card, the camera will format
it in exFAT.
When using an exFAT-formatted card, even if the file size exceeds
4 GB during movie shooting, the movie will be saved as a single file
(rather than being split into multiple files).
229
Movie Shooting Time Limit
The maximum recording time per movie is 29 min. 59 sec. Once 29 min.
59 sec. is reached, recording automatically stops. You can start shooting a
movie again by pressing the <A> button. (The movie will be recorded as a
new movie file.)
zz When downloading movie files exceeding 4 GB to a computer, use either the
EOS Utility (= 484) or a card reader (= 487). Movie files exceeding 4 GB
will not be downloaded if you perform image download with the function of the
computer’s operating system.
230

zz
zz
zz
Using a tripod to prevent camera shake is recommended.
Time-lapse movie, Creative filter, and Movie digital IS cannot be set.
The maximum ISO speed will be ISO 6400.
Magnified view is not possible.
Since Movie digital zoom processes the image digitally, the image will look
grainier at higher magnifications. Noise, dots of light, etc. may also become
noticeable.
zz The scene icon will not be displayed.
zz For details, see “Shooting Conditions that Make Focusing Difficult” (= 202).
231
Movie Digital IS
The camera’s Movie digital IS feature reduces camera shake as movies are
recorded. With Movie digital IS, images can be stabilized even when using
a lens without Image Stabilizer. When using a lens equipped with Image
Stabilizer, set the lens’s Image Stabilizer switch to <1>.
1 Select [Movie digital IS].
zz Under the [z] tab, select [Movie
digital IS], then press <0>.
2 Select an item.
zz Press the <W> <X> keys of the cross
keys to select the item, then press

corrected. The image will be more magnified.
232
zz Movie digital IS will not function when the lens’s optical Image Stabilizer
switch is set to <2>.
zz With a lens whose focal length is longer than 800 mm, Movie digital IS will not
function.
zz Movie digital IS cannot be set in <8> or <v> mode or when Movie digital
zoom, time-lapse movie, or Creative filter is set.
zz The wider the angle of view, the more effective the image stabilization will be.
The narrower the angle of view, the less effective the image stabilization will
be.
zz When using a TS-E lens, fish-eye lens, or non-Canon lens, setting Movie
digital IS to [Disable] is recommended.
zz Effects of Movie digital IS are not applied to images during magnified display.
zz Since Movie digital IS magnifies the image, the image looks more grainy.
Noise, dots of light, etc. may also become noticeable.
zz Depending on the subject and shooting conditions, the subject may blur
noticeably (the subject momentarily looks out of focus) due to the effects of
the Movie digital IS.
zz AF point size also changes when you specify Movie digital IS.
zz When using a tripod, setting Movie digital IS to [Disable] is recommended.
zz This feature is not compatible with certain lenses. For details, refer to the
Canon website.
233
Recording HDR Movies
You can reduce the clipped highlights of bright areas, which may make
details hard to see, as you shoot movies even in high-contrast scenes.
The recording size is L6X (NTSC) or L5X (PAL).
1 Set the Mode Dial to <8>.
2 Shoot an HDR movie.
zz Since multiple frames are merged to create an HDR movie, certain parts
of the movie image may look distorted. During handheld shooting, camera
shake may make the distortion look more noticeable. Using a tripod is
recommended. Note that even if a tripod is used for shooting, afterimages
or noise may become more noticeable when the HDR movie is played back
frame-by-frame or in slow-motion compared to normal playback.
zz Movie digital zoom, time-lapse movie, and Movie digital IS cannot be set.
234
Shooting Movies with Creative Filter

soft look overall, blurring the periphery of the screen. You can adjust the
blurry areas along the screen edges.
zz m Old Movies
Creates an atmosphere like an old film by adding wavering, scratches,
and flickering effects to the image. The top and bottom of the screen
are masked in black. You can modify the wavering and scratch effects
by adjusting the filter effect.
zz k Memory
Creates the atmosphere of a distant memory. Gives the movie a soft
look overall, reducing brightness of the periphery of the screen. You

zz Sound recordingN
(1)
Normally, the built-in microphones
will record the sound in stereo. If the
Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1 (sold
separately) is connected to the camera’s
external microphone IN terminal (= 28),
the external microphone will be given the
priority.
(1) Level meter
[Sound rec./Rec. level] options
:The sound-recording level is adjusted automatically.
[Auto]
Auto level control will operate automatically in response
to the sound level.
[Manual]
:For advanced users. You can adjust the soundrecording level to one of 64 levels.
Select [Rec. level] and press the <Y> <Z> keys while
looking at the level meter to adjust the sound-recording
level. Look at the peak hold indicator (approx. 3 sec.),
and adjust so that the level meter sometimes lights up
on the right of the “12” (-12 dB) mark for the loudest
sounds. If it exceeds “0”, the sound will be distorted.
[Disable]
: Sound will not be recorded.
[Wind filter]
When set to [Auto], it reduces wind noise when there is wind outdoors.
This feature works only when you use the built-in microphones for
movie shooting. When the wind filter function takes effect, part of the
low bass sounds will also be reduced.
[Attenuator]
Automatically suppresses sound distortion caused by loud noises.
Even if [Sound rec.] is set to [Auto] or [Manual] for shooting, sound
distortion may still result if there is a very loud sound. In such a case,
setting it to [Enable] is recommended.
zz If you use the Wi-Fi (wireless communication) function with an external
microphone, the sound noise may be recorded. During sound recording,
using the wireless communication function is not recommended.
251
zz In Basic Zone modes, the settings available for [z: Sound recording]
will be [On]/[Off]. If [On] is set, the sound-recording level will be adjusted
automatically (same as with [Auto]), and the wind filter function will take
effect.
zz The sound volume balance between L (left) and R (right) cannot be adjusted.
zz For both L and R, audio is recorded at a 48 kHz/16-bit sampling rate.
zz Movie digital IS (= 232)
Enables you to reduce camera shake as movies are recorded.
zz Lens aberration correctionN (= 141)
You can set peripheral illumination correction and chromatic aberration
correction.
zz Time-lapse movie (= 238)

whether to give priority to brightness or smoothness.
zz Metering timerN
You can change how long the exposure setting is displayed (AE lock
time).
zz HDMI info dispN (= 256)
You can hide information overlay during HDMI output.
zz AF method
The AF methods are the same as described on “Focusing with AF”
(= 197). You can select [u+Tracking], [Spot AF], [1-point AF], or
[Zone AF].
252
zz Movie Servo AF
With this function enabled, the camera focuses on the subject
continuously during movie shooting. The default setting is [Enable].
When [Enable] is set:
-- The camera focuses on the subject continuously even when you are
not pressing the shutter button halfway.
-- If you want to keep the focus at a specific point or if you do not want
the lens mechanical sound to be recorded, you can temporarily stop
Movie Servo AF as follows.
• Tap [Z] on the screen’s bottom left.
•Under [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)], if [Shutter/AE lock
button] is set to [2:AF/AF lock, no AE lock], you can pause the
Movie Servo AF while holding down the <A> button. When you
let go of the <A> button, Movie Servo AF will resume.
-- When Movie Servo AF is paused, if you return to movie shooting
after operations such as pressing the <M> or <x> button or
changing the AF method, Movie Servo AF will resume.
When [Disable] is set:
-- Press the shutter button halfway to focus.
Cautions When [Movie Servo AF] is Set to [Enable]
zz Shooting Conditions that Make Focusing Difficult
-- A fast-moving subject approaching or moving away from the camera.
-- A subject moving at a close distance to the camera.
-- For details, see “Shooting Conditions that Make Focusing Difficult”
(= 202).
zz Since the lens is driven continuously and battery power is consumed, the
possible movie shooting time will be shortened.
zz With certain lenses, the mechanical sound for focusing may be recorded. In
such a case, using Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1 (sold separately)
may reduce such sounds in the movie. Also, using certain USM lenses (for
example, the EF-S18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM) or certain STM lenses (for
example, the EF-S18-55mm f/4-5.6 IS STM) will reduce the lens mechanical
sound that is recorded.
zz Movie Servo AF will pause during zooming or magnified view.
zz During movie shooting, if a subject approaches or moves away or if the
camera is moved vertically or horizontally (panning), the recorded movie
image may momentarily expand or contract (change in image magnification).
zz If you want to set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF> during Movie Servo
AF, first set the camera’s power switch to <1>.
253
zz Lens electronic MFN (= 107)
Can be specified when using lenses that support electronic manual
focusing.
zz Grid when shooting
With [3x3 l] or [6x4 m], you can display grid lines to help you
level the camera vertically or horizontally before shooting. Also, with
[3x3+diag n], the grid is displayed together with diagonal lines to
help you compose with better balance by aligning the intersections over
the subject.
Note that the grid is not displayed on the LCD monitor during movie
shooting.
zz Shutter button function for movies
You can set the functions performed by pressing the shutter button
halfway or completely during movie shooting.
[Half-press]
-- Can be set to [Meter.+kServo AF], [Meter.+One-Shot AF], or
[Metering only]. ([Meter.+One-Shot AF] is not available for 4K
movies.)
[Fully-press]
-- Can be set to [No function] or [Start/stop mov rec].
With fully pressing the button set to [Start/stop mov rec], you can
start/stop movie recording not only by pressing the <A> or shutter
button completely but also by using Remote Switch RS-60E3 (sold
separately, = 463).
zz During movie shooting, the [5: Shutter btn function for movies] setting
overrides any function assigned to the shutter button with [Shutter/AE lock
button] under [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)].
254
ISO Speed During Movie ShootingN
You can set the ISO speed separately for
still photo shooting and movie shooting.
Set in [kISO speed settings] under the
[z] tab.
zz [ISO speed]
In manual exposure, you can set the ISO speed (= 222).
zz [Max for Auto]
You can set the maximum limit of the automatic ISO speed for ISO Auto
to ISO 6400 or ISO 12800.
Under [5: Custom Functions(C.Fn)], if [ISO expansion] is set to
[1:On], you can select [H(25600)].
Auto Slow ShutterN
You can choose whether to shoot movies
that are brighter and less affected by
image noise than when set to [Disable]
by automatically slowing the shutter speed
under low light.
Applies when the frame rate of the movie
recording size is 8 or 7.
zz [Disable]
Enables you to record movies with smoother, more natural movement,
less affected by subject shake than when set to [Enable]. Note that
under low light, movies may be darker than when set to [Enable].
zz [Enable]
Enables you to shoot brighter movies, less affected by image noise,
than when set to [Disable] by automatically reducing the shutter speed
to 1/30 sec. (NTSC) or 1/25 sec. (PAL) under low light.
zz Setting to [Disable] is recommended when recording moving subjects under
low light, or when afterimages such as trails may occur.
255
Information Display for HDMI OutputN
You can configure information display for
image output via an HDMI cable.
zz [With info]
The image, shooting information, AF points, and other information is
shown on the other device via HDMI. Note that the camera screen goes
off.
Recorded movies are saved to the card.
zz [Clean / L output]
HDMI output consists solely of 4K movies. Shooting information and AF
points are also displayed on the camera, but no image is recorded to
the card. Note that Wi-Fi communication is not available.
zz [Clean / L output]
HDMI output consists solely of Full HD movies. Shooting information
and AF points are also displayed on the camera, but no image is
recorded to the card. Note that Wi-Fi communication is not available.
256
General Movie Shooting Cautions
Red <E> Internal Temperature Warning Icon
zz If a red <E> icon appears during movie recording, the card may be hot, so
stop recording the movie and let the camera cool down before removing the
card. (Do not remove the card immediately.)
zz If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged movie
shooting or under a high ambient temperature, a red <E> icon will appear.
zz The red <E> icon indicates that movie shooting will soon be terminated
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.
zz Shooting a movie at a high temperature for a prolonged period will cause the
<E> icon to appear earlier. When you are not shooting, always turn off the
camera.
Recording and Image Quality
zz If the attached lens has an Image Stabilizer and you set the Image Stabilizer
(IS) switch to <1>, 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 depending on
the shooting conditions. When the Image Stabilizer is not necessary, such as
when using a tripod, it is recommended that you set the IS switch to <2>.
zz The camera’s built-in microphones will also record the operation sound and
mechanical sound of the camera during shooting. Using the Directional
Stereo Microphone DM-E1 (sold separately) may reduce these sounds in the
movie.
zz Do not connect anything other than an external microphone to the camera’s
external microphone IN terminal.
zz If the brightness changes during autoexposure movie shooting, the movie
image may freeze temporarily. In such a case, shoot movies with manual
exposure.
zz If there is a very bright light source in the image, the bright area may appear
black on the LCD monitor. The movie will be recorded almost exactly as it
appears on the LCD monitor.
zz In low light, noise or irregular colors may appear in the image. The movie will
be recorded almost exactly as it appears on the LCD monitor.
zz If you play back a movie with other devices, image or sound quality may
decline or playback may not be possible (even if the devices support MP4
format).
257
General Movie Shooting Cautions
Recording and Image Quality
zz If you use a card with a slow writing speed, a five-level indicator
(1) 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.
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.
(1)
Playback and TV Connection
zz If you connect the camera to a TV set (= 305) and shoot a movie, the TV
set will not output any sound during the shooting. However, the sound will be
properly recorded.
Restrictions on MP4-format Movies
zz Note that generally, the following restrictions apply to MP4-format movies.
-- Sound will not be recorded for approx. the last two frames.
-- When you play back movies on Windows, movie images and sound may
become slightly out of synchronization.

zz Subsequently captured images will be
recorded into the selected folder.
(1) Number of images in folder
(2) Lowest file number
(3) Folder name
(4) Highest file number
Folders
zz As with “100CANON” 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 (= 267) is executed, a new folder will be created
automatically. Folders numbered from 100 to 999 can be created.
Creating Folders with a Computer
zz 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 always the folder number from 100 to 999. The last
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 last five characters
in each name are different.
264
File Numbering Methods
The image files will be numbered from 0001 to 9999 in the order the images
are taken, then saved in a folder. You can change how the file number is
assigned.
The file number will appear on your computer in this format:
IMG_0001.JPG.
In [File numbering] under the [5] tab,
select [Numbering], then press <0>.
The available settings are described below.
Select the option, then press <0>.
zz [Continuous]: When you wish to continue the file numbering
sequence even after the card is replaced or a new folder is
created.
Even after you replace the card or create a new folder, the file
numbering continues in sequence up to 9999. This is useful when you
want to save images numbered anywhere between 0001 to 9999 on
multiple cards or in multiple folders into one folder on a 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 on the card or in the
folder. If you want to use continuous file numbering, it is recommended
that you use a newly-formatted card each time.

to organize images by 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 on the card or in the
folder. If you want to save images with the file numbering starting from

dust spots automatically, refer to the Digital Photo Professional Instruction
Manual.
The Dust Delete Data appended to the image is so small that it hardly
affects the image file size.

object has any pattern or design, it may be recognized as dust data and affect
the accuracy of the dust deletion with EOS software.

selected.
zz While cleaning the sensor, never do any of the following. If the power is
cut off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains and image sensor
may get damaged.

power is turned off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains or reflex
mirror may get damaged.
zz Never use pressurized air or gas to clean the sensor. Pressurized air may
damage the sensor, and sprayed gas may freeze on the sensor and scratch
it.
zz If the battery level becomes low while cleaning the sensor, the beeper will
sound as a warning. Stop cleaning the sensor.

back with the camera.
Playback and Editing with a Computer
The movie files recorded on the card can be transferred to a computer
and played back or edited with pre-installed or general-purpose software
compatible with the movie’s recording format.

zz Highlight Alert
When the shooting information is displayed, overexposed and clipped
highlights will blink. To obtain a better result for the blinking areas where
you want the gradation to be faithfully reproduced, set the exposure
compensation to a negative amount and shoot again.
zz Histogram
The brightness histogram shows the exposure level distribution
and overall brightness. The RGB histogram is for checking the
color saturation and gradation. The display can be switched with
[x: Histogram disp].
[Brightness] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the
distribution of the image’s brightness level. The
horizontal axis indicates the brightness level
(darker on the left and brighter on the right),
while the vertical axis indicates how many pixels
exist for each brightness level. The more pixels
there are toward the left, the darker the image.
The more pixels there are toward the right, the
brighter the image. If there are too many pixels
on the left, the shadow detail will be lost. If there
are too many pixels on the right, the highlight
detail will be lost. The gradation in-between will
be reproduced. By checking the image and its
brightness histogram, you can see the exposure
level inclination and the overall gradation.
Sample Histograms
Dark image
Normal brightness
Bright image
[RGB] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the distribution of each primary color’s
brightness level in the image (RGB or red, green, and blue). The horizontal
axis indicates the color’s brightness level (darker on the left and brighter
on the right), while the vertical axis indicates how many pixels exist for
each color brightness level. The more pixels there are toward the left, the
darker and less prominent the color. The more pixels there are toward the
right, the brighter and denser the color. If there are too many pixels on the
left, the respective color information will be lacking. If there are too many
pixels on the right, the color will be too saturated with no gradation. By
checking the image’s RGB histogram, you can see the color’s saturation
and gradation condition, as well as white balance inclination.
327
Post-Processing Images
After taking a picture, you can apply a filter effect, resize
the JPEG image (reduce the pixel count), or crop the JPEG
image.
zz The camera may not be able to process images taken with another
camera.

zz When shooting RAW+JPEG image, the Creative filter will be applied to the
RAW image and the image will be saved as a JPEG image.
zz If an aspect ratio was set for a RAW image and the filter effect is applied to it,
the image will be saved in the aspect ratio that is set.
zz Dust Delete Data (= 274) will not be appended to images with Fish-eye
effect applied.
Creative Filter Characteristics
zz G Grainy B/W
Creates a grainy black-and-white photo. You can change the black-andwhite effect by adjusting the contrast.
zz W Soft focus
Gives the image a soft look. You can change the degree of softness by
adjusting the blur.
zz X Fish-eye effect
Gives the effect of a fish-eye lens. The image will have a barrel-type
distortion.
Depending on the level of this filter effect, the area trimmed along the
periphery of the image changes. Also, since this filter effect will magnify
the image center, the apparent resolution at the center may degrade
depending on the number of recorded pixels. Set the filter effect in step
4 while checking the resulting image.
zz Y Art bold effect
Makes the photo look like an oil painting and the subject look more
three-dimensional. You can adjust the contrast and saturation. Note
that subjects such as the sky or white walls may not be rendered with a
smooth gradation and may look irregular or have significant noise.
330
zz Z Water painting effect
Makes the photo look like a watercolor painting with soft colors. You
can control the color density by adjusting the filter effect. Note that night
scenes or dark scenes may not be rendered with a smooth gradation
and may look irregular or have significant noise.
zz H Toy camera effect
Darkens the photo’s corners and applies a unique color tone that
makes it look as if it was shot by a toy camera. You can change the
color cast by adjusting the color tone.
zz c Miniature effect
Creates a diorama effect. You can change where the image looks
sharp. In step 4, if you press the <B> button (or tap on [T] on
the screen), you can switch between the white frame’s vertical and
horizontal orientations.

Wireless Communication Function
Notes
If the transmission rate drops, the connection is lost, or other problems
occur when using the wireless communication functions, try the following
corrective actions.
Distance Between the Camera and the Smartphone
If the camera is too far from the smartphone, a Wi-Fi connection may not be
established even when Bluetooth connection is possible. In this case, bring the
camera and the smartphone closer together, then establish a Wi-Fi connection.
Installation Location of Access Point Antenna
zz When using indoors, install the device in the room where you are using
the camera.
zz Install the device where people or objects do not come between the
device and the camera.
Nearby Electronic Devices
If the Wi-Fi transmission rate drops because of the influence of the following
electronic devices, stop using them or move further away from the devices
to transmit communication.
zz The camera communicates over Wi-Fi via IEEE 802.11b/g/n using radio
waves in the 2.4 GHz band. For this reason, the Wi-Fi transmission
rate will drop if there are Bluetooth devices, microwave ovens, cordless
telephones, microphones, smartphones, other cameras, or similar
devices operating on the same frequency band nearby.
439
Cautions for Using Multiple Cameras
zz When connecting multiple cameras to one access point via Wi-Fi, make
sure the cameras’ IP addresses are different.
zz When multiple cameras are connected to one access point via Wi-Fi,
the transmission rate drops.
zz When there are multiple IEEE 802.11b/g/n (2.4 GHz band) access
points, leave a gap of five channels between each Wi-Fi channel to
reduce radio wave interference. For example, use channels 1, 6, and
11, channels 2 and 7, or channels 3 and 8.
Using the Wireless Remote Control BR-E1
zz BR-E1 cannot be used while the camera and smartphone are paired
via Bluetooth. Change the camera connection to the wireless remote
in [FConnect to Wireless Remote] under [k: Wi-Fi/Bluetooth
connection].
440
Security
If security settings have not been properly set, the following problems may
occur.
zz Transmission monitoring
Third parties with malicious intent may monitor the Wi-Fi transmissions
and attempt to acquire the data you are sending.
zz Unauthorized network access
Third parties with malicious intent may gain unauthorized access to
the network you are using to steal, modify, or destroy information.
Additionally, you could fall victim to other types of unauthorized access
such as impersonation (where someone assumes an identity to gain
access to unauthorized information) or springboard attacks (where
someone gains unauthorized access to your network as a springboard
to cover their tracks when infiltrating other systems).
It is recommended to make use of the systems and functions to thoroughly
secure your network, preventing these types of problems from occurring.
441
Checking Network Settings
zz Windows
Open the Windows [Command Prompt], then type ipconfig/all and
press the <Enter> key.
In addition to the IP address assigned to the computer, the subnet
mask, gateway, and DNS server information are also displayed.
zz Mac OS
In Mac OS X, open the [Terminal] application, enter ifconfig -a, and
press the <Return> key. The IP address assigned to the computer is
indicated in the [en0] item next to [inet], in the format “***.***.***.***”.
*For information about the [Terminal] application, refer to the Mac OS X help.
To avoid using the same IP address for the computer and other devices on
the network, change the rightmost number when setting up the IP address
assigned to the camera in the processes described on = 408.

zz You cannot take a picture when focus indicator <o> in the viewfinder
blinks during focusing with One-Shot AF. Press the shutter button
halfway again to refocus automatically, or focus manually (= 50,
= 111).
The card cannot be used.
zz If a card error message is displayed, see = 38 or = 477.
An error message is displayed when the card is inserted in
another camera.
zz Since SDXC cards are formatted in exFAT, if you format a card with

zz Set the AF operation to One-Shot AF. Focus lock is not possible in the
AI Servo AF mode or when servo takes effect in AI Focus AF mode
(= 195).
Horizontal stripes appear, or the exposure or color tone look
strange.
zz Horizontal stripes (noise) or irregular exposures can be caused
by fluorescent lighting, LED lighting, or other light sources during
viewfinder or Live View shooting. Also, the exposure or color tone may
not come out right. A slow shutter speed may reduce the problem.
The standard exposure cannot be obtained or the exposure is
irregular.
zz During viewfinder shooting or Live View shooting, if you use a TS-E

priority] is set to [Enable] or [Enhanced]. If [Disable] is set, the Auto
Lighting Optimizer can be set (= 137).
Even if I set a decreased exposure compensation, the image
comes out bright.
zz Set [z: 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 (= 136).
The built-in flash does not fire.
zz If you use the built-in flash too often in too short a period of time, the
flash may stop firing for a while to protect the light-emitting unit.
Flash exposure compensation cannot be set for the external

0), flash exposure compensation can be set with the camera.
The camera makes a noise when it is shaken.
zz A small noise may be heard when the camera’s internal mechanism
moves slightly.
469
The shutter makes two release sounds during Live View
shooting.
zz If you use flash, the shutter will make two release sounds each time
you shoot (= 182).
During Live View shooting, a white s or red E icon is displayed.
zz It indicates that the camera’s internal temperature is high. If the white
<s> icon is displayed, the still photo’s image quality may deteriorate. If
the red <E> icon is displayed, it indicates that the Live View shooting
will soon stop automatically (= 215).

exposure regardless of whether the lens’s maximum aperture changes
or not. The changes in the exposure may be recorded as a result.
470
The subject looks distorted during movie shooting.
zz If you move the camera to the left or right or shoot a moving subject,
the image may look distorted.
The image flickers or horizontal stripes appear during movie
shooting.
zz Flickering, horizontal stripes (noise), or irregular exposures can be
caused by fluorescent lighting, LED lighting, or other light sources
