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.
zz To maximize the camera’s dust- and drip- resistance, keep the terminal
cover, battery compartment cover, card slot cover, and all other covers
firmly closed.
zz This camera is designed to be dust- and drip- resistant, in order to help
prevent sand, dust, dirt, or water that falls on it unexpectedly from getting
inside, but it is impossible to prevent dirt, dust, water, or salt from getting
inside at all. As far as possible, do not allow dirt, dust, water, or salt to get
on the camera.
zz If water gets on the camera, wipe it off with a dry and clean cloth. If dirt,
dust, or salt gets on the camera, wipe it off with a clean, well-wrung wet
cloth.
zz Using the camera in a location with large amounts of dirt or dust may
cause a malfunction.
zz Cleaning the camera after use is recommended. Allowing dirt, dust, water,
or salt to remain on the camera may cause a malfunction.
zz If you accidentally drop the camera into water or are concerned that
moisture (water), dirt, dust, or salt may have gotten inside it, promptly
consult the nearest Canon Service Center.
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 malfunction 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.
28
Handling Precautions
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, 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, to avoid damage, do not use the
camera or remove the lens, card, or battery.
Turn the camera off and wait until the moisture has fully evaporated
before resuming use. Even after the camera is completely dry, if it is still
internally cold, do not remove the lens, card, or battery until the camera
has adjusted to the ambient temperature.
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.
29
Handling Precautions
Screen and LCD Panel
zz Although the screen 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. This is
not a malfunction. They do not affect the images recorded.
zz If the screen 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 screen display may seem slightly slow in low temperatures or
may 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.
zz Do not store or use the card near anything that has a strong magnetic
field, such as a television, 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.
Lens
zz After detaching the lens from the camera, put down
the lens with the rear end up and attach the rear lens
cap to avoid scratching the lens surface and electrical
contacts (1).

from the power outlet.
zz You can attach the protective cover in a
different orientation to indicate whether the
battery is recharged or not.
If the battery is recharged, attach the protective
> is
cover so that the battery-shaped hole <
aligned over the blue sticker on the battery. If the
battery is exhausted, attach the protective cover in
the opposite orientation.
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
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 (=524) and purchase a new
battery.
ooAfter disconnecting the charger’s power plug, do not touch the prongs for
approx. 10 sec.
oo If the battery’s remaining capacity (=524) is 94% or higher, the battery will
not be recharged.
oo The provided charger cannot charge any battery other than Battery Pack
LP-E6N/LP-E6.

camera shake. It can cause blurred pictures. To prevent camera shake,
note the following:
Hold and steady the camera as shown on the preceding page.
Press the shutter button halfway to autofocus, then slowly press the
shutter button completely.
oo If you press the shutter button completely without pressing it halfway first, or if
you press the shutter button halfway and then press it completely immediately,
the camera will take a moment before it takes the picture.
oo Even during menu display or image playback, you can go back to shootingready state by pressing the shutter button halfway.

oo Subject movement (whether subjects are still or moving) may not be detected
correctly for some subject or shooting conditions.
oo The <A> mode makes the colors look more impressive in nature, outdoor,
and sunset scenes. If you do not obtain the desired color tones, change the
mode to a Creative Zone mode (=39) and select a Picture Style other than
<D>, then shoot again (=230).
Minimizing Blurred Photos
zz Be careful about camera shake in handheld shots. To avoid camera
shake, consider using a tripod. Use a sturdy tripod that can bear the
weight of the shooting equipment. Attach the camera securely to the
tripod.
zz Using a remote switch (sold separately, =156) or a wireless remote
control (sold separately, =155) is recommended.
FAQ
zzFocusing is not possible (indicated by a blinking <o> in the
viewfinder, in viewfinder shooting, or by an orange AF point
in Live View shooting).
Aim the AF point over an area with good contrast, then press the shutter
button halfway (=57). If you are too close to the subject, move away
and shoot again.
zzMultiple AF points are displayed simultaneously.
Focus has been achieved at all those points.
zzPressing the shutter button halfway does not focus the
subject.
If the focus mode switch on the lens is set to <MF>, set it to <AF>.
zzThe shutter speed display is blinking.
Since it is too dark, taking the picture may result in a blurred subject due
to camera shake. Using a tripod, the built-in flash, or an external flash
(=179) is recommended.
78
Fully Automatic Shooting (Scene Intelligent Auto)
zzPictures are too dark.
Raise the built-in flash to enable automatic flash firing, in case subjects in
daytime shots are backlit, or when shooting under low light.
zzThe built-in flash fired repeatedly when raised while
shooting under low light.
To make autofocusing easier, the built-in flash may fire repeatedly when
you press the shutter button halfway (=126).
zzPictures taken with flash are too bright.
Pictures may be bright (overexposed) if you shoot subjects at close range
in flash photography. Move away from the subject and shoot again.
zzThe bottom part of pictures taken with flash is unnaturally
dark.
Shooting subjects that are too close may make the shadow of the lens
visible in your shots. Move away from the subject and shoot again. Also
remove the lens hood before shooting.
Note the following if you are not using the built-in flash.
oo Under low light where camera shake tends to occur, 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.
oo When shooting portraits under low light, tell subjects to stay still until you have
finished shooting. Any movement as you shoot will make the person look
blurry in the picture.
79
Fully Automatic Shooting (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.
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”.
oo In Live View shooting, the camera continues to focus on any faces initially
detected and focused on, even if you recompose the shot.
Shooting a Moving Subject
Pressing the shutter button halfway tracks moving subjects to keep them in
focus.
Keep the subject in the Area AF frame (in viewfinder shooting) or on the
screen (in Live View shooting) as you hold down the shutter button halfway,
and at the decisive moment, press the shutter button completely.

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
zzSelect 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.
zzUse a telephoto lens.
If you have a zoom lens, use the telephoto end to fill the frame with the
subject from the waist up.
zzFocus on the face.
As you focus before shooting, make sure that an AF point is displayed on
the face (in viewfinder shooting), or that the AF point on the face is green
(in Live View shooting). When shooting close-ups of the face in Live View
shooting, you can set [z: Eye Detection AF] to [Enable] to shoot with
the subject’s eyes in focus.
zzShoot continuously.
The default setting is <i> (Low-speed 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.
86
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
zzUse 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.
zzTake multiple shots of the group.
It is recommended to shoot multiple photos in case some people close
their eyes.
oo Using a tripod is recommended when shooting indoors or under low light.
87
Shooting Landscapes
Use the <3> (Landscape) mode for expansive scenery or to have
everything in focus from near to far. For vivid blues and greens, and sharp
and crisp images.
Shooting Tips
zzWith 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.
zzKeep the camera steady when shooting night scenes.
Using a tripod is recommended.
88
Shooting Moving Subjects
Use the <5> (Sports) mode to shoot a moving subject, such as a running
person or a moving vehicle.
Shooting Tips
zzUse a telephoto lens.
Use of a telephoto lens is recommended to enable shooting from a
distance.
zzTrack the subject with the Area AF frame.
In viewfinder shooting, aim the Area AF frame over the subject and press
the shutter button halfway to start focusing. During autofocusing, the
beeper will continue beeping softly. If focus cannot be achieved, the focus
indicator <o> will blink.
In Live View shooting, an Area AF frame appears after you press the
shutter button halfway. Once the subject is in focus, the AF point turns
blue.
zzShoot continuously.
The default setting is <o> (High-speed continuous shooting). At the
decisive moment, press the shutter button completely to take the shot. To
track the subject and capture changes as it moves, keep holding down
the shutter button to shoot continuously.

In viewfinder shooting, aim the Area AF frame (1) over the subject and
press the shutter button halfway to start focusing. During autofocusing,
the beeper will continue beeping softly. If focus cannot be achieved, the
focus indicator <o> will blink.
In Live View shooting, an Area AF frame (2) appears after you press the
shutter button halfway. Once the subject is in focus, the AF point turns
blue.
zzShoot continuously.
The default setting is <o> (High-speed continuous shooting). At
the decisive moment, press the shutter button completely to take the
shot. To track the subject and capture changes in facial expression and
movement, keep holding down the shutter button to shoot continuously.
zzWhen <D> blinks
Press the <D> button to raise the built-in flash.
90
Panning
If you want to take a picture with the feel of speed and a blurred motion
effect on the subject’s background, use the <r> (Panning) mode. If you
use a lens supporting the <r> mode, subject blur is detected, corrected,
and reduced.
Shooting Tips
zzTurn the camera to follow the moving subject.
When shooting, turn the camera smoothly as you track the moving
subject. Aim the AF point over the part of the moving subject where you
want to focus, then press the shutter button halfway and keep holding
it down as you turn the camera to match the subject’s speed and
movement. Press the shutter button completely while moving the camera
to take the picture. Keep tracking the subject with the camera.
91
Panning
zzSet the level of background motion blur.
With [Effect], you can set the level of background motion blur. The [Max]
setting will set a slower shutter speed to increase the background motion
blur around the subject. If the subject blur is noticeable, set [Effect] to
[Med] or [Min] to reduce the blur.
zzShoot continuously.
By default, <i> (Continuous shooting) is set. At the decisive moment,
press the shutter button completely to take the picture. You can track
moving subjects by panning the camera as you keep holding down the
shutter button to shoot continuously.
oo To see which lenses support the <r> mode, refer to the Canon website.
oo With lenses that support <r> mode, the camera automatically corrects
subject blur and (based on the [Effect] setting) adjusts shutter speed,
regardless of the lens IS setting.
oo The AF Area selection mode’s default setting is Zone AF with the center of the
screen selected.
oo The AF method can only be set to [1-point AF] or [Zone AF]. By default, it is
set to [Zone AF], with the zone in the center of the screen selected.
oo To prevent camera shake, it is recommended that you hold the camera with
both hands, tighten your arms close to your body, and track the subject’s
movement smoothly to take pictures.
oo This effect is most effective with trains, cars, etc. that move at a constant
speed in one direction.
oo Taking test shots or checking the image by playing it back immediately after
shooting is recommended.
oo With telephoto lenses, be careful about camera shake and subject blur. To
avoid camera shake, consider using a tripod or monopod.
92
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
zzUse a simple background.
A simple background makes small objects such as flowers stand out
better.
zzMove in as close as possible to the subject.
Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. The lens minimum
focusing distance is measured from the <V> (focal plane) mark on the
top of the camera to the subject. Focusing is not possible if you are too
close.
zzWith a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.
If you have a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the subject
look larger.
zzWhen <D> blinks
Press the <D> button to raise the built-in flash.

Shooting Food
When you want to take pictures of food, use the <P> (Food) mode. 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
zzChange the color tone.
You can change [Color tone]. To increase the food’s reddish tinge, set it
toward [Warm] (red). Set it toward [Cool] (blue) if it looks too red.
94
Shooting Candlelight Portraits
When you want to photograph a person in candlelight, use the <y>
(Candlelight) mode. The atmosphere of candlelight is reflected in the color
tones of the picture.
Shooting Tips
zzUse the center AF point to focus.
Aim the center AF point in the viewfinder on the subject, then shoot.
zzPrevent camera shake if the numeric display (shutter speed)
in the viewfinder blinks.
Under low light where camera shake tends to occur, the viewfinder’s
shutter speed display will blink. When using a zoom lens, consider
zooming out and either holding the camera steady or using 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.
zzChange the color tone.
You can change [Color tone]. To increase the candlelight’s reddish tinge,
set toward [Warm tone] (red), or set toward [Cool tone] (blue) if it looks
too red.
zzAdjust brightness.
You can change [Brightness]. To brighten the image, set toward +, or set
toward – if the image is too bright.
oo The AF method can only be set to [1-point AF].
95
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. Note
that shooting in this mode requires the built-in flash or an external
Speedlite. Using a tripod is recommended.
Shooting Tips
zzUse a wide-angle lens and a tripod.
When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to obtain a wide night
view. Because camera shake occurs in handheld shooting, using a tripod
is also recommended.
zzCheck the image brightness.
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.
zzAlso shoot in other shooting modes.
Since camera shake is prone to occur with night shots, shooting also with
<A> and <F> modes is recommended.
oo If you use the self-timer together with a flash, the self-timer lamp will light up
briefly after the picture is taken.
96
Handheld Shooting of Night Scenes
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
zzHold the camera steady.
Keep your elbows close to your body to hold the camera steady (=56).
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.
zzFor portraits, use flash.
If your shots will include people, use the built-in flash or an external
Speedlite. To take a nice portrait, the first shot will use flash. Tell the
subject not to move until all four consecutive shots are taken.
97
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.
* HDR stands for High Dynamic Range.
Shooting Tips
zzHold the camera steady.
Keep your elbows close to your body to hold the camera steady (=56).
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.
98
Cautions for the <SCN> Modes
q: Group Photo
oo The angle of view changes slightly, due to distortion correction.
oo Depending on the shooting conditions, focus may not be attained for everyone
from the front to the back of the image.
3: Landscape
oo The built-in flash will not fire, even if it is raised when you shoot.
oo Speedlites will not fire either, if used.
5: Sports
oo Under low light where camera shake tends to occur, the shutter speed value in
the lower left will blink. Hold the camera steady and shoot.
oo Using a flash will decrease the continuous shooting speed.
C: Kids
oo Continuous shooting speed is slower when a flash fires during continuous Live
View shooting. The camera keeps shooting at the lower continuous shooting
speed even after the flash stops firing.
r: Panning
oo The shutter speed will become slower. Therefore, this mode is not suitable for
any shooting except for panning.
oo <o> or <M> cannot be selected.
oo Flash photography is not possible.
oo Although lens IS is applied to images captured with lenses supporting <r>
mode, the effect is not shown in the viewfinder or on the screen as you shoot.
(IS and subject blur correction are activated when you shoot, regardless of the
lens IS setting.)
oo If the lens does not support the <r> mode, subject blur will not be corrected.
However, the automatic shutter speed adjustment alone will take effect
according to the setting of [Effect].
oo When shooting under bright light such as a sunny summer day or when
shooting a slow subject, the set degree of panning effect may not be obtained.
99
Cautions for the <SCN> Modes
r: Panning (continued)
oo With a lens supporting the <r> mode, subject blur may not be corrected
properly when shooting the following subjects or under the following shooting
conditions.
• Subjects with very low contrast.
• Subjects in low light.
• Strongly backlit or reflective subjects.
• Subjects with repetitive patterns.
• Subjects with less patterns or monotonous patterns.
• Subjects with reflections (images reflected in glass, etc.).
• Subjects smaller than the Zone AF frame.
• When there are multiple subjects moving within the Zone AF frame.
• Subjects moving in irregular directions or at irregular speeds.
• Subjects whose movements are partly irregular. (For example, the vertical
movement of a runner.)
• Subjects whose speed changes dramatically. (For example, right after the
start of movement or while turning along a curve.)
• When you move the camera too fast or too slow.
• When the camera’s movement does not match the subject’s movement.
• When the lens focal length is long.
P: Food
oo The warm color cast of subjects may fade.
oo When multiple light sources are included in the scene, the warm color cast of
the picture may not be reduced.
oo If you use a flash, [Color tone] will be set to Standard.
oo If there are people in the picture, the skin tone may not be reproduced
properly.
y: Candlelight
oo The flash will not fire. However, raising the flash beforehand is recommended,
to enable firing of the AF-assist beam (=126).
100
Cautions for the <SCN> Modes
6: Night Portrait
oo Tell subjects to remain still for a moment after the flash fires.
oo During Live View shooting, achieving focus may be difficult when the face of
the subject looks dark. In this case, set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF>
and focus manually.
oo When you shoot a night scene with Live View shooting, achieving focus with
AF may be difficult if point sources of light are found in the AF point. In this
case, set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
oo The Live View image displayed will not look exactly the same as the actual
captured image.
F: Handheld Night Scene
oo Compared to other shooting modes, the image area will be smaller.
oo RAW image quality cannot be set.
oo When you shoot a night scene with Live View shooting, achieving focus with
AF may be difficult if point sources of light are found in the AF point. In this
case, set the lens’s focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
oo The Live View image displayed will not look exactly the same as the actual
captured image.
oo If you use a flash and the subject is close, overexposure may result.
oo If you use a flash for a night scene with limited lighting, the shots may not align
correctly. This may result in a blurry picture.
oo If you use a flash with a human subject 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.
oo 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.
101
Cautions for the <SCN> Modes
F: Handheld Night Scene (continued)
oo If you shoot a moving subject, the subject’s movement may leave afterimages
or the surrounding area of the subject may become dark.
oo 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.
oo It takes some time to record images to the card since they are merged after
shooting. During the processing of the images, “buSY” will be displayed in the
viewfinder and on the LCD panel, and you cannot take another picture until
the processing is complete.
G: HDR Backlight Control
oo Compared to other shooting modes, the image area will be smaller.
oo RAW image quality cannot be set.
oo Flash photography is not possible.
oo Note that the image may not be rendered with a smooth gradation and may
look irregular or have significant noise.
oo HDR Backlight Control may not be effective for excessively backlit scenes or
extremely high-contrast scenes.
oo 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.
oo If you shoot a moving subject, the subject’s movement may leave afterimages
or the surrounding area of the subject may become dark.
oo The image alignment may not function properly with repetitive patterns (lattice,
stripes, etc.), flat or single-tone images, or images significantly misaligned due

Shooting with Filter Effects Applied
Creative Filter Characteristics
zzI Grainy B/W
Makes the image grainy and black and white. By adjusting the contrast,
you can change the black-and-white effect.
zzW Soft focus
Gives the image a soft look. By adjusting the blur, you can change the
degree of softness.
zzX Fish-eye effect
Gives the effect of a fish-eye lens. The image will have barrel distortion.
Depending on the level of this filter effect, the area trimmed along the
periphery of the image changes. Also, because this filter effect magnifies
the center of the image, the apparent resolution at the center may
degrade depending on the number of recorded pixels, so set the filter
effect while checking the resulting image. One AF point is used, fixed at
the center.
zzZ Water painting effect
Makes the photo look like a watercolor painting with soft colors. By
adjusting the effect, you can change the color density. Note that night
scenes or dark scenes may not be rendered with a smooth gradation and
may look irregular or have significant noise.
zzH Toy camera effect
Shifts colors to those typical of toy cameras and darkens the four corners
of the image. Color tone options can be used to change the color cast.
105
Shooting with Filter Effects Applied
zzc Miniature effect
Creates a diorama effect.
Shooting under the default setting will keep the center looking sharp.
In Live View shooting, you can move the area that looks sharp (the scene
frame) as described in “Miniature Effect Operations” (=108). 1-point AF
is used as the AF method. Shooting with the AF point and scene frame
aligned is recommended.
In viewfinder shooting, aim the center AF point shown in the viewfinder
on the subject, then shoot.
zzA HDR art standard
Photos retain more detail in highlights and shadows. With reduced
contrast and flatter gradation, the finish resembles a painting. The subject
outlines will have bright (or dark) edges.
zzB 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.
zzC HDR art bold
The colors are the most saturated, making the subject pop out, and the
picture looks like an oil painting.
zzD 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 bright (or dark) edges.
oo With <A>, <B>, <C>, and <D>, you can shoot high dynamic range
photos that retain detail in highlights and shadows of high-contrast scenes.
Three consecutive images are captured at different brightnesses each time
you shoot and used to create a single image. See the cautions on =107.
106

Selecting the AF Operation
AI Focus AF (Viewfinder Shooting) for Automatic Switching
of AF Operation
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 camera uses One-Shot AF to focus on a subject, if it detects
subject movement, a change in distance, or similar changes, it switches
to AI Servo AF and continues to track the moving subject.
oo The camera continues beeping quietly when subjects are in focus using the
servo.
oo The focus indicator <o> in the viewfinder does not light up when subjects are
in focus using the servo.
oo Shooting with the focus locked is not possible when the servo is used.
oo In <A> mode in Live View shooting, AI Focus AF is used to focus. Note that
Servo AF is used to focus on moving subjects. When focus is achieved, the
AF point will turn blue. Note that the camera will not switch to Servo AF if the
subject moves during continuous shooting.
AF-Assist Beam
zz In viewfinder shooting, the built-in flash can emit an AF-assist beam to
make autofocusing easier under low light or in other conditions where
autofocusing is difficult. The AF-assist beam will be emitted as needed
after you press the <I> button to raise the flash and press the shutter
button halfway.
zz The AF-assist beam is not emitted in Live View shooting, even if the builtin flash is raised.
oo The flash does not emit an AF-assist beam when AF operation is set to
[AI Focus AF] or [AI Servo AF].
oo To disable AF-assist beam firing, set [z: AF-assist beam firing] to [Disable].

Selecting the AF Area and AF Point
(Viewfinder Shooting)
Depending on the lens used, the number of usable AF points, AF point
patterns, Area AF frame shape, etc. vary. For details, see “Supplemental
Information”.
AF Area Selection Mode
N: Spot AF (Manual selection)
zz The camera focuses in a narrower area
than 1-point AF.
zz Effective for pinpoint focusing or
focusing on overlapping subjects such
as an animal in a cage.
zz Because the AF area is narrow, focusing
may be difficult in some shooting
conditions.
E: 1-point AF (Manual selection)
zz The camera focuses using a single AF
point.
F: Zone AF (Manual selection of
zone)
zz The camera focuses in a zone consisting
of nine AF points. Subjects are easier to
acquire than with 1-point AF.
zz Generally focuses on the nearest
subject. Note that any detected faces
are given priority in focusing.
zz With AI Servo AF, focusing continues as
long as subjects can be tracked within
the zone.

change, you can process the RAW image to create any number of JPEG
images with various processing conditions.
You can use Digital Photo Professional (EOS software) to process RAW
images. You can make various adjustments to images depending upon how

right of the viewfinder.
oo If the maximum burst is displayed as “99”, it indicates that you can shoot 99
or more shots continuously. The value starts decreasing once it reaches 98 or
less. [buSY] display in the viewfinder and LCD panel indicates that the internal
buffer memory is full and shooting will stop temporarily. If you stop continuous
shooting, the maximum burst will increase. After all the captured images are

206
Correction of Lens Aberrations due to Optical Characteristics
Peripheral Illumination Correction
Vignetting (dark image corners) can be corrected.
oo Depending on shooting conditions, noise may appear on the image periphery.
oo The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.
oo The correction amount applied will be lower than the maximum correction
amount that applied with Digital Photo Professional (EOS software).
oo 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.
oo 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.
oo Setting distortion correction may change the angle of view slightly.
oo When you magnify images, distortion correction is not applied to the images
displayed.
oo Distortion correction is not applied in movie recording.
oo Images with distortion correction applied will not have the Dust Delete Data
(=241) appended. Also, the AF point may be displayed out of position,
relative to the time of shooting.
oo Distortion is corrected automatically when <8> mode is set to <q> mode
and correction data is registered on the camera.
207
Correction of Lens Aberrations due to Optical Characteristics
Digital Lens Optimizer
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.
oo 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.
oo The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.
oo For movie recording, [Digital Lens Optimizer] will not appear. (Correction is
not possible.)
oo Enabling [Digital Lens Optimizer] corrects both chromatic aberration and
diffraction, although these options are not displayed.
oo Digital Lens Optimizer is applied automatically in Basic Zone modes when
correction data is registered on the camera.
208
Correction of Lens Aberrations due to Optical Characteristics
Chromatic Aberration Correction
Chromatic aberration (color fringing around subjects) can be corrected.
oo [Chromatic aberr corr] is not displayed when [Digital Lens Optimizer] is
enabled.
Diffraction Correction
Diffraction (loss of sharpness caused by the aperture) can be corrected.
oo Depending on shooting conditions, noise may be intensified together with the
effects of correction.
oo The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.
oo For movie recording, [Diffraction correction] will not appear. (Correction is
not possible.)
oo 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.
oo [Diffraction correction] is not displayed when [Digital Lens Optimizer] is
enabled.
209
Correction of Lens Aberrations due to Optical Characteristics
General Cautions for Lens Aberration Correction
oo Peripheral illumination correction, chromatic aberration correction, distortion
correction, and diffraction correction cannot be applied to JPEG images
already taken.
oo When using a non-Canon lens, setting the corrections to [Disable] is
recommended even if [Correction data available] is displayed.
oo Magnifying the periphery of the image may display parts of the image that will
not be recorded.
oo 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
oo 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.
oo If the correction is difficult to discern, magnifying and checking the image after
shooting is recommended.
oo Corrections can be applied even when an extender or life-size converter is
attached.
oo 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).
oo If necessary, refer to the EOS Utility Instruction Manual as well.

Noise Reduction Settings
Cautions for Setting Multi Shot Noise Reduction
oo If there is significant misalignment in the image due to camera shake, the
noise reduction effect may become smaller.
oo If you are handholding the camera, keep it steady to prevent camera shake.
Using a tripod is recommended.
oo If you shoot a moving subject, the moving subject may leave afterimages.
oo Auto image alignment may not function properly with repetitive patterns (lattice,
stripes, etc.) or flat, single-tone images.
oo If the subject’s brightness changes as the four consecutive shots are taken,
irregular exposure in the image may result.
oo After shooting, it may take some time to record an image to the card after
performing noise reduction and merging the images. “buSY” appears in the
viewfinder and on the LCD panel as images are processed, and shooting is
not possible until processing is finished.
oo [Multi Shot Noise Reduction] is not available with bulb shooting, shooting
with AEB or WB bracketing, shooting RAW or RAW+JPEG images, or with
features such as long exposure noise reduction, multiple exposures, or HDR
mode.
oo Flash photography is not possible. Note that the AF-assist beam of
EOS-dedicated, external Speedlites will be emitted according to the
[z: AF-assist beam firing] setting.
oo [Multi Shot Noise Reduction] is not available (not displayed) when recording
movies.

they may cause changes in image brightness.
• EF100mm f/2.8 L MACRO IS USM
• EF180mm f/3.5 L MACRO USM
• EF-S60mm f/2.8 MACRO USM
oo Suitable [Focus increment] settings vary by subject. An unsuitable [Focus
increment] setting may cause unevenness in composite images, or shooting
may take more time because more shots are taken. Take some test shots to
decide a suitable [Focus increment] setting.
oo Combining images may take some time when the [Number of shots] setting
is high.
oo Flash photography is not possible.
oo Shooting under flickering light may cause uneven images. In this case,
lowering the shutter speed may give better results.
oo Focus bracketing is not available when the lens’s focus mode switch is set to

oo Canceling shooting in progress may cause exposure problems in the last
image. Avoid using the last image when combining the images in Digital Photo
Professional.
oo Use of a tripod, remote switch (sold separately, =156), or wireless remote
control (sold separately, =156) is recommended.
oo For best results, set the aperture value in a range of f/5.6–11 before shooting.

259
Interval Timer Shooting
oo 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.
oo Setting the lens focus mode switch to <AF> prevents the camera from
shooting unless subjects are in focus. Setting it to <MF> and focusing
manually before shooting is recommended.
oo If the shooting time is long, using the household power outlet accessories (sold
separately) is recommended.
oo Shooting long exposures or using shutter speeds longer than the shooting
interval will prevent shooting at the specified interval. For this reason, fewer
shots than specified will be taken. Using shutter speeds nearly the same as
the shooting interval may also reduce the number of shots.
oo If the time it takes to record to the card exceeds the shooting interval due to
the shooting functions set or card performance, some of the shots may not be
taken with the set intervals.
oo When using flash with interval timer shooting, set an interval longer than the
flash charge time. Intervals that are too short may prevent the flash from firing.
oo Intervals that are too short may prevent shooting or autofocusing.
oo Interval timer shooting will be canceled and reset to [Disable] if you set the
power switch to <2>, set the shooting mode to <F> or <w/x>, or use
EOS Utility (EOS software).
oo During interval timer shooting, you cannot use remote control shooting
(=155) or remote-release shooting with a Speedlite.

Flicker Effect Reduction
M
If you shoot an image with a fast shutter speed under a light source such
as fluorescent light, the blinking of the light source causes flicker and the
image may be vertically unevenly exposed. If continuous shooting is used
under these conditions, uneven exposures or colors across the images may
result. Anti-flicker shooting enables viewfinder shooting at moments when
exposure and colors are less affected by flickering.
1 Select [z: Anti-flicker shoot.].
2 Select [Enable].
3 Take the picture.
oo When [Enable] is set and you shoot under a flickering light source, the
shutter-release time lag may become longer. Also, the continuous shooting
speed may become slower, and the shooting interval may become irregular.
oo Not applied to mirror lockup shots, Live View shooting, or movie recording.
oo Flicker at a frequency other than 100 Hz or 120 Hz cannot be detected.
Also, if the flickering frequency of the light source changes during continuous
shooting, effects of the flicker cannot be reduced.
261
Flicker Effect Reduction
oo In the <d> or <f> mode, if the shutter speed changes during continuous
shooting or if you shoot multiple shots of the same scene at different shutter
speeds, the color tone may become inconsistent. To avoid inconsistent color
tones, use the <a> or <s> mode at a fixed shutter speed.
oo Color tone of captured images may vary between [Enable] and [Disable].
oo Shutter speed, aperture value, and ISO speed may change when you start
shooting with AE lock.
oo If the subject is against a dark background or if there is a bright light in the
image, flicker may not be properly detected.
oo Flicker reduction may not be possible under special lighting.
oo Depending on the light source, flicker may not be detected properly.
oo Depending on the light sources or shooting conditions, the expected result
may not be obtained even if you use this function.
oo Taking test shots in advance is recommended.
oo When you shoot with flicker reduction, <G> will light up. If <G>
does not appear in the viewfinder, set [Flicker detection] in [Viewfinder
display] to [Show] (=536). Under a light source that does not flicker or with
no flicker detected, <G> will not be displayed.
oo Even if you set [z: Anti-flicker shoot.] to [Disable], with [Flicker detection]
set to [Show], <G> in the viewfinder will blink to warn you if the camera
meters under a flickering light source.
oo Although <G> is not displayed in Basic Zone modes, the effects of
flickering are still reduced when you shoot.
oo The expected result may not be obtained for wireless flash photography.

General Still Photo Shooting Cautions
Applies to Both Viewfinder and Live View Shooting
Image Quality
oo When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (such as dots of light and banding)
may become noticeable.
oo Shooting in high temperatures may cause noise and irregular colors in the
image.
With Live View shooting
oo 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.
Image Quality
oo Frequent shooting over an extended period may cause the camera’s internal
temperature to rise and affect image quality. When you are not shooting,
always turn off the camera.
oo If you shoot a long exposure while the camera’s internal temperature is high,
image quality may decline. Stop shooting and wait a few minutes before
shooting again.
White [s] and Red [E] Icons
oo If the camera’s internal temperature rises from extended shooting or use in hot
environments, a white [s] or red [E] icon will appear.
oo The white [s] icon indicates that the image quality of still photos will decline.
Stop shooting for a while and allow the camera to cool down.
oo Shooting at low ISO speeds instead of high speeds is recommended when a
white [s] icon is displayed.
oo The red [E] icon indicates that shooting will soon end automatically. Shooting
will not be possible again until the camera cools down internally, so stop
shooting temporarily or turn off the camera and let it cool down a while.
oo Shooting in hot environments over extended periods will cause the white [s]
or red [E] icon to appear sooner. When you are not shooting, always turn off
the camera.
oo If the camera’s internal temperature is high, the quality of images shot with a
high ISO speed or long exposure may decline even before the white [s] icon
is displayed.
Shooting Results
oo In magnified view, the shutter speed and aperture will be displayed in red.
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.
oo Even if you take the picture in magnified view, the image will be captured with
the image area of the normal view.
269
General Still Photo Shooting Cautions
Images and Display
oo Under low- or bright-light conditions, the displayed image may not reflect the
brightness of the captured image.
oo Under low light, noise may be noticeable in image display even at low ISO
speeds, but there will be less noise in your shots, because image quality
varies between display and captured images.
oo The screen or exposure value may flicker if the light source (lighting) changes.
In this case, stop shooting temporarily and resume under the light source you
will use.
oo Pointing the camera at different direction may momentarily prevent correct
display of brightness. Wait until the brightness level stabilizes before shooting.
oo If there is a very bright light source in the image, the bright area may appear
black on the screen. However, the actual captured image will correctly show
the bright area.
oo In low light, if you set the [5: Disp. brightness] to a bright setting, noise
or irregular colors may appear in the image. However, the noise or irregular
colors will not be recorded in the captured image.
oo When you magnify the image, the image sharpness may look more
pronounced than in the actual image.
Custom Functions
oo Some Custom Functions are not available (some settings have no effect).
Lens and Flash
oo 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>.
oo With EF lenses, focus preset during shooting is only available when using
(super) telephoto lenses equipped with this function released in and after the
second half of 2011.
oo FE lock is not available with the built-in flash. FE lock and modeling flash will
not work if an external Speedlite is used.

oo If [g] is blinking, it indicates that the image is displayed at a brightness that
differs from the actual shooting result because of low- or bright-light conditions.
However, the actual image recorded will reflect the exposure setting. Note that
the noise may be more noticeable than the actual image recorded.
oo Exposure simulation may not be performed under some shooting settings.
The [g] icon and histogram will be displayed in gray. The image will be

Movie Recording
oo During movie recording, avoid changing the shutter speed, aperture, or ISO
speed. Doing so may record the changes in the exposure or create more
noise at high ISO speeds.
oo When recording a movie of a moving subject, a shutter speed of approx.
1/25 sec. to 1/125 sec. is recommended. The faster the shutter speed, the
less smooth the subject’s movement will look.
oo If you change the shutter speed while recording under fluorescent or LED
lighting, image flicker may be recorded.
oo With ISO Auto, exposure compensation can be set in a range of ±3 stops.
oo When ISO Auto is set, you can press the <A> button to lock the ISO speed.

Cautions for Movie Recording
oo 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.
oo If you shoot something that has fine detail, moire or false colors may result.
oo If [Q] or [Qw] is set and the ISO speed or aperture changes during movie
recording, the white balance may also change.
oo If you record a movie under fluorescent or LED lighting, the movie image may
flicker.
oo If you perform AF with a USM lens during movie recording in low light,
horizontal banding noise may be recorded in the movie. The same type of
noise may occur if you focus manually with certain lenses equipped with an
electronic focusing ring.
oo Recording a few test movies is recommended if you intend to perform zooming
during movie recording. Zooming as you record movies may cause exposure
changes or lens sounds to be recorded, an uneven audio level, or loss of
focus.
oo Large aperture values may delay or prevent accurate focusing.
oo When you press the shutter button halfway to perform AF during movie
recording, any of the following may occur: The focus is temporarily greatly
thrown off, changes in movie brightness is recorded, the movie recording
stops momentarily, and the mechanical sound of the lens is recorded.
oo Avoid covering the built-in microphones (=277) with your fingers or other
objects.
oo “General Movie Recording Cautions” are on =326–=327.

=617.
When recording movies, use a high-capacity card with a writing/reading
speed (as specified in card performance requirements) shown in the
table on =617 or higher than the standard specification. Test cards by
recording a few movies to make sure they can record correctly at your
specified size (=288).
oo Format cards before recording 4K movies (=511).
oo If you use a slow-writing card when recording movies, the movie may not be
recorded properly. Also, if you play back a movie on a card with a slow reading
speed, the movie may not be played back properly.
oo When recording movies, use high-performance cards with a writing speed
sufficiently higher than the bit rate.
oo When movies cannot be recorded normally, format the card and try again.
If formatting the card does not resolve the problem, refer to the card
manufacturer’s website, etc.
oo To obtain better performance with the card, formatting the card with the
camera before recording movies is recommended (=511).

Recording Time-lapse Movies
Still photos shot at a set interval can be stitched together automatically to
create a 4K or Full HD time-lapse movie. A time-lapse movie shows how
a subject changes in a much shorter period of time than the actual time
it took. It is effective for a fixed-point observation of changing scenery,
growing plants, celestial motion, etc.
Time-lapse movies will be recorded in MP4 format at the following
quality: H6W (NTSC)/H5W (PAL) for 4K shooting, and
L 6 W (NTSC)/L 5 W (PAL) for Full HD shooting.
Note that the frame rate will be switched automatically according to the [5:

Movie Servo AF
With this function enabled, the camera focuses on the subject continuously
during movie recording.
1 Select [z: Movie Servo AF].
2 Select [Enable].
zzWhen [Enable] is set:
The camera focuses on the subject continuously even when you are
not pressing the shutter button halfway.
To keep the focus at a specific position, or if you prefer not to record
mechanical sounds from the lens, you can temporarily stop Movie
Servo AF by touching [Z] in the lower left of the screen.
When Movie Servo AF is paused, if you return to movie recording after
operations such as pressing the <M> or <x> button or changing
the AF method, Movie Servo AF will resume.
zzWhen [Disable] is set:
Press the shutter button halfway or press the <p> button to

317
Movie Servo AF
Cautions When [Movie Servo AF] is Set to [Enable]
oo 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.
• When shooting with a higher f/number.
• Also see “Shooting Conditions that Make Focusing Difficult” on =146.
oo Since the lens is driven continuously and the battery power is consumed, the
possible movie recording time (=618) will be shortened.
oo With certain lenses, the mechanical sound for focusing may be recorded. In
this case, using Directional Stereo Microphone DM-E1 (sold separately) may
reduce such sounds in the movie.
oo Movie Servo AF will pause during zooming or magnified view.
oo During movie recording, 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).
318
Movie Servo AF Track Sensitivity
M
You can adjust the tracking sensitivity (to one of seven levels), which affects
responsiveness if the subject strays from the AF point during Movie Servo
AF, as when interfering objects move across AF points or when you pan.
[z: Movie Servo AF track

sens.].
Locked on: –3/–2/–1
With this setting, the camera is less
likely to track a different subject if the
main subject strays from the AF point.
The closer the setting is to the minus (–)
symbol, the less the camera is inclined
to track a different subject. It is effective
when you want to prevent the AF points
from rapidly tracking something that is
not the intended subject during panning
or when an obstacle cuts across the AF
points.
Responsive: +1/+2/+3
This makes the camera more responsive when tracking a subject that
covers the AF point. The closer the setting is to the plus (+) symbol,
the more responsive the camera is. It is effective when you want
to keep tracking a moving subject as its distance from the camera
changes or to rapidly focus on another subject.
oo Available when [z: Movie Servo AF] is set to [Enable] and [z: AF
method] is set to [1-point AF].
oo Operation when [z: AF method] is set to an option other than [1-point AF]
is equivalent to a setting of [0].
319
Movie Servo AF Speed
M
You can set the Movie Servo AF’s AF speed and its operation conditions.
The function is enabled when using a lens supporting slow focus transition
during movie recording*.
1 Select [z: Movie Servo AF speed].
When active:
You can set [Always on] to have the AF
speed take effect at all times for movie
recording (before and during movie
recording) or set [During shooting] to
have the AF speed take effect only during
movie recording.
AF speed:
You can adjust the AF speed (focus
transition speed) from the standard speed
(0) to slow (one of seven levels) or fast
(one of two levels) to obtain the desired
effect for the movie creation.
* Lenses supporting slow focus transition during movie
recording
USM and STM lenses released in and after 2009 are compatible. For
details, refer to the Canon website.
320
Movie Servo AF Speed
oo With certain lenses, even if you adjust the AF speed, the speed may not
change.
oo Available when [z: Movie Servo AF] is set to [Enable] and [z: AF

General Movie Recording Cautions
Red [E] Internal Temperature Warning Icon
oo If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged movie
recording or under a high ambient temperature, a red [E] icon will appear.
oo The red [E] icon indicates that movie recording 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. Note that the time until movie recording stops automatically
when the red [E] icon is displayed varies depending on shooting conditions.
oo Recording a movie at a high temperature for a prolonged period will cause the
red [E] icon to appear earlier. When you are not shooting, always turn off the
camera.
[x] Display
oo The camera’s internal temperature may rise and [x] may be displayed after
extended movie recording, or after extended Live View use with [H movie
cropping] set to [Enable]. Movie recording is not possible as long as [x]
is displayed. If [x] appears during movie recording, the camera will turn off
automatically in approx. 3 min.
oo Wait and allow the camera to cool down when [x] is displayed or the camera
stops movie recording in progress, either by turning it off or canceling movie
recording mode.
Recording and Image Quality
oo 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 recording 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>.
oo If the brightness changes as you record a movie with auto exposure, the
movie may appear to stop momentarily. In this case, record movies with
manual exposure.
oo If there is a very bright light source in the image, the bright area may appear
black on the screen. Movies are recorded almost exactly as they appear on
the screen.
oo Image quality may be lower when recording movies under a combination of
conditions such as high ISO speeds, high temperatures, low shutter speeds,
and low light.
oo Recording movies over an extended period may cause the camera’s internal
temperature to rise and affect image quality. Turn off the camera when
possible if you are not recording movies.
oo 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).

General Movie Recording Cautions
Recording and Image Quality
oo If you use a card with a slow writing speed, an indicator
may appear on the right of the screen during movie
recording. 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 (1) becomes
(1)
full, movie recording will stop automatically.
oo If the card has a fast writing speed, the indicator will
either not appear or the level (if displayed) will hardly go upward. First, record
a few test movies to see if the card can write fast enough.
oo If the indicator indicates that the card is full and movie recording stops
automatically, the sound near the end of the movie may not be recorded
properly.
oo If the card’s writing speed is slow (due to fragmentation) and the indicator
appears, formatting the card may make the writing speed faster.
Audio Restrictions
oo Note that the following restrictions apply when [Movie rec. size] is set to
L6V (NTSC) or L5V (PAL), when [8C.Fn III-9: Audio
compression] is set to [Enable], and for Basic Zone or video snapshots.
• 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.

Depending on the level of this filter effect, the area trimmed along the
periphery of the image changes. Also, because this filter effect magnifies
the center of the image, the apparent resolution at the center may
degrade depending on the number of recorded pixels, so set the filter
effect in step 4 while checking the resulting image.
zzY Art bold effect
Makes the photo look like an oil painting and the subject look more threedimensional. By adjusting the effect, you can change 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.
zzZ Water painting effect
Makes the photo look like a watercolor painting with soft colors. By
adjusting the effect, you can change the color density. Note that night
scenes or dark scenes may not be rendered with a smooth gradation and
may look irregular or have significant noise.
zzH Toy camera effect
Shifts colors to those typical of toy cameras and darkens the four corners
of the image. Color tone options can be used to change the color cast.
zzc Miniature effect
Creates a diorama effect. You can change where the image looks sharp.
To switch between vertical and horizontal orientation of the sharp area

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.
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.
494
Wireless Communication Function Notes
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
control in [Connect to Wireless Remote] under [k: Wi-Fi/Bluetooth
connection].
495
Security
If security settings have not been properly set, the following problems may
occur.
zzTransmission monitoring
Third parties with malicious intent may monitor the Wi-Fi transmissions
and attempt to acquire the data you are sending.
zzUnauthorized 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.
496
Checking Network Settings

oo 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 (=509) is executed, a new
folder will be created automatically. Folders numbered from 100 to 999 can be
created.
Creating Folders with a Computer
oo 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 remaining five characters
in each name are different.
506
File Numbering Methods
The captured images saved in a folder are
assigned a file number from 0001 to 9999.

oo If the file number in folder 999 reaches 9999, shooting will not be possible
even if the card still has storage capacity. The screen will display a message
telling you to replace the card. Replace it with a new card.
507
File Numbering Methods
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 newlyformatted card each time.

When you replace the card or create a folder, the file numbering restarts
from 0001 for the new images saved. This is useful if you want 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 0001, use a newly

If the subject brightness changes and the standard exposure cannot be
obtained within the autoexposure range, the camera will automatically
change the manually selected setting to obtain the standard exposure.
When set to [Shutter speed/Aperture], this setting applies to <s> and
<f> modes. When set to [ISO speed], this setting applies to <d>,
<s>, and <f> modes.

oo The minimum and maximum limits for the safety shift with the ISO speed are
determined by [Auto range] (=216). However, if the manually set ISO
speed exceeds the [Auto range], the safety shift will take effect up or down to
the manually set ISO speed.
oo Safety shift will take effect as necessary even when flash is used.

C.Fn II: Autofocus
C.Fn II-1: Tracking sensitivity
You can set the subject-tracking sensitivity, which affects responsiveness to
interfering objects that move across AF points or subjects that stray from AF
points during AI Servo AF/Servo AF.
zz 0
Standard setting. Suitable for moving subjects in general.
zz Locked on: –2 / Locked on: –1
The camera will try to continue focusing on the subject even if an obstacle
cuts across the AF points or if the subject strays from the AF points. The
–2 setting makes the camera keep tracking the target subject longer than
the –1 setting.
However, if the camera focuses on a wrong subject, it may take slightly
longer to switch and focus on the target subject.
zz Responsive: +2 / Responsive: +1
The camera can focus consecutively on subjects at different distances
that are covered by the AF points. Also effective when you want to always
focus on the closest subject. The +2 setting is more responsive than the
+1 setting when focusing on the next subject.
However, the camera will be more prone to focus on an unintended
subject.
559
Custom Function Setting Items
C.Fn II-2: Acceleration/deceleration tracking
Sets the AI Servo AF/Servo AF tracking sensitivity for subjects that change
speed suddenly, as by suddenly moving or stopping.
zz 0
Suited for subjects that move at a steady speed (minor changes in
moving speed).
zz –2 / –1
Suited for subjects that move at a steady speed (minor changes in
moving speed). Effective when a setting of 0 makes focus unstable, due
to slight subject movement or an obstruction in front of the subject.
zz +2 / +1
Effective for subjects having sudden movements, sudden acceleration/
deceleration, or sudden stops. Even if the moving subject’s speed
suddenly changes dramatically, the camera continues to focus on
the target subject. For example, the camera is less likely to focus
behind a subject that suddenly starts approaching you, or in front of an
approaching subject that suddenly stops moving. Setting +2 can track
dramatic changes in the moving subject’s speed better than with +1.
However, since the camera will be sensitive to even slight movements of
the subject, focusing may become unstable for short periods.
560
Custom Function Setting Items
C.Fn II-3: AF point auto switching
This sets the switching sensitivity of the AF points as they track the subject
moving dramatically up, down, left, or right.
Applies in [Auto selection AF], [Zone AF], or [Large Zone AF] AF area
selection modes, or with [u+Tracking] or [Zone AF] AF methods.
zz 0
Standard setting for gradual AF point switching.
zz +2 / +1
Even if the target subject moves dramatically up, down, left, or right
and moves away from the AF point, the camera switches its focus to
neighboring AF points to continue focusing on the subject. The camera
switches to the AF point deemed most likely to focus on the subject
based on the subject’s continual movement, contrast, etc. Setting +2
makes the camera more prone to switch the AF point than with +1.
However, with a wide-angle lens having a wide depth of field or if
the subject is too small in the frame, the camera may focus with an
unintended AF point.
C.Fn II-4: AI Servo 1st image priority
You can set the AF operation characteristics and shutter-release timing for
the first shot with AI Servo AF.
zz Equal priority
Equal priority is given to focusing and shutter release.
zz Release priority
Pressing the shutter button takes the picture immediately even if focus
has not been achieved. Useful when you want to give priority to capturing
the decisive moment rather than achieving focus.
zz Focus priority
Pressing the shutter button does not take the picture until focus is
achieved. Useful when you want to achieve focus before capturing the
image.
561
Custom Function Setting Items
C.Fn II-5: AI Servo 2nd image priority
With AI Servo AF for continuous shooting, you can preset the AF operation
characteristics and shutter-release timing for the subsequent shots after the
first shot in continuous shooting.
zz Equal priority
Equal priority is given to focusing and continuous shooting speed. In low
light or with low-contrast subjects, continuous shooting speed may slow
down.
zz Shooting speed priority
Priority is given to the continuous shooting speed instead of achieving
focus.
zz Focus priority
Priority is given to achieving focus instead of the continuous shooting
speed. The picture will not be taken until focus is achieved.
oo Even if [Shooting speed priority] is set, under shooting conditions that
activate flicker reduction (=261), the continuous shooting speed may
become slower or the shooting interval may become irregular.
oo If focus cannot be achieved in low-light conditions when [Equal priority] is
set, setting [Focus priority] may give better results.
562
Custom Function Setting Items
C.Fn II-6: Lens drive when AF impossible
You can specify lens operation in cases when the camera cannot autofocus
on a subject.
zz 0: Continue focus search
If focus cannot be achieved with autofocus, the lens is driven to search
for the precise focus.
zz 1: Stop focus search
If autofocus starts and the focus is far off or if focus cannot be achieved,
the lens drive will not be performed. This prevents the lens from
becoming grossly out of focus due to the focus search drive.
oo [1:Stop focus search] is recommended for super telephoto lenses or other
lens that cover a large area, to avoid significant delay from focus search drive
if the lens becomes greatly out of focus.

zz 1: Separate AF pts: G+S (S in LV)
The AF area selection mode and AF point or zone AF frame can be set
separately for each camera orientation (1. Horizontal, 2. Vertical with the
camera grip at the top, 3. Vertical with the camera grip at the bottom).
When you manually select the AF area selection mode and AF point (or
zone) for each of the three camera orientations, they will be registered for
the respective orientation. Whenever you change the camera orientation
during shooting, the camera will switch to the AF area selection mode
and manually-selected AF point or zone AF frame set for that orientation.
zz 2: Separate AF pts: S only
Separate AF point or Zone AF frame positions can be assigned for
each camera orientation (1. Horizontal, 2. Vertical with the camera grip
above, 3. Vertical with the camera grip below). Useful when switching to
AF points or Zone AF frames in other positions automatically based on
camera orientation.
AF points or Zone AF frames assigned to each of the three camera
orientations are retained.

C.Fn II-12: Auto AF point selection: EOS iTR AF
Use this function to autofocus in viewfinder shooting by recognizing people.
This function works when the AF area selection mode is set to Zone AF
(manual selection of zone), Large Zone AF (manual selection of zone), or
Automatic selection AF.
zz 0: EOS iTR AF (Face priority)
Faces are given greater priority than with [1:Enable] when the camera
selects AF points.
In One-Shot AF mode, this makes it easier to focus on faces of still
human subjects in the AF area.
Also makes it easier to focus on faces in the AF area in AI Servo AF
mode.
Once focus is achieved, AF points are automatically selected to keep
focusing on the faces initially in focus.
zz 1: Enable
The camera selects AF points automatically based on AF information and
information on recognized people.
In One-Shot AF mode, focusing on a still human subject in the AF area is
made easier.
In AI Servo AF mode, focusing on a human subject in the AF area is
made easier. If no people are detected, the camera focuses on the
nearest subject. Once focus is achieved, AF points are automatically
selected so that the camera continues to focus on the color of the area it
focused on first.
zz 2: Disable
AF points are automatically selected based only on AF information.
oo With setting [0:EOS iTR AF (Face priority)] or [1:Enable], focusing will take
slightly longer than with setting [2:Disable].
oo Even with setting [0:EOS iTR AF (Face priority)] or [1:Enable], the expected
result may not be obtained depending on the shooting conditions and subject.
oo Under low light, where external Speedlites for EOS cameras automatically
emit an AF-assist beam, AF points are selected automatically based only on
AF information. (Information on recognized people is not used for AF.)

Fine Adjustment of AF Position (AF Microadjustment)
oo When shooting with the intermediate range (focal length) of a zoom lens, the
AF’s point of focus is corrected automatically relative to the adjustments made
for the wide-angle and telephoto ends. Even if only the wide-angle or telephoto
end is adjusted, a correction will be made automatically for the intermediate
range.
Clearing All AF Microadjustments
When [ Clear all] appears at the bottom of the screen, pressing the <L>
button will clear all the adjustments made for [1:All by same amount] and
[2:Adjust by lens].
Cautions for AF Microadjustment
oo The AF’s point of focus will vary slightly depending on the subject conditions,
brightness, zoom position, and other shooting conditions. Therefore, even
if you perform AF Microadjustment, focus may still not be achieved at the
suitable position.
oo The adjustment amount of one step varies depending on the maximum
aperture of the lens. Keep adjusting, shooting, and checking the focus
repeatedly to adjust the AF’s point of focus.
oo The adjustment will not be applied to AF in Live View shooting or movie
recording.
oo The adjustments will be retained even if you do [8: Clear all Custom Func.
(C.Fn)] (=581). However, the setting will be [0:Disable].
oo To check adjustment results, focus with One-Shot AF.
Notes for AF Microadjustment
oo It is best to make the adjustment at the actual location where you will shoot.
This will make the adjustment more precise.
oo Using a tripod when making the adjustment is recommended.
oo For making adjustments, shooting at the 73 image-recording quality is
recommended.

AI Servo AF/Servo AF mode or when servo takes effect in AI Focus AF
mode (=80, =125).
The continuous shooting speed is slow.
zz The continuous shooting speed for high-speed continuous shooting may
be lower, depending on conditions such as these: temperature, battery
level, flicker reduction, shutter speed, aperture, subject conditions,
brightness, AF operation, type of lens, live view shooting, use of flash,
and shooting settings, etc. For details, see =150 or =152.
The maximum burst during continuous shooting is lower.
zz If you shoot a subject that has fine detail such as a field of grass, the file
size will be larger, and the actual maximum burst may be lower than the
number listed on =615.
599
Troubleshooting Guide
Even after I change the card, the maximum burst displayed for
continuous shooting does not change.
zz The maximum burst displayed does not change when you switch cards,
even if you switch to a high-speed card. The maximum burst shown in
the table on =615 is based on Canon’s testing card. (The faster the
card’s writing speed, the higher the actual maximum burst will be.) For
this reason, the maximum burst displayed may differ from the actual
maximum burst.
Even if I set a decreased exposure compensation, the image
comes out bright.
zz Set [z: Auto Lighting Optimizer] to [Disable] (=218). When [Low],
[Standard], or [High] is set, even if you set a decreased exposure
compensation or flash exposure compensation, the image may come out
bright.
I cannot set the exposure compensation when both manual
exposure and ISO Auto are set.
zz See =118 to set the exposure compensation.
Not all the lens aberration correction options are displayed.
zz Although [Chromatic aberr corr] and [Diffraction correction] are
not displayed when [Digital Lens Optimizer] is set to [Enable], both
functions are applied in shooting, as when set to [Enable].
zz During movie recording, [Digital Lens Optimizer], [Diffraction
correction], or [Distortion correction] will not be displayed.
The built-in flash does not fire.
zz Shooting with the flash may be temporarily disabled to protect the flash
head if the built-in flash is used repeatedly over a short period.

Troubleshooting Guide
Movie recording stops by itself.
zz If the card’s writing speed is slow, movie recording may stop
automatically. For cards that can record movies, see =617. To find out
the card’s writing speed, refer to the card manufacturer’s website, etc.
zz If you shoot a movie for 29 min. 59 sec., the movie recording will stop
automatically.
The ISO speed cannot be set for movie recording.
zz In shooting modes other than <a>, the ISO speed is set automatically.
In the <a> mode, you can manually set the ISO speed (=280).
The manually set ISO speed changes when switching to movie
recording.
zz For viewfinder shooting and Live View shooting, the ISO speed will be
set according to [ISO speed range] under [z: zISO speed settings]
(=215). For movie recording, the ISO speed will be set according to
[ISO speed range] under [z: kISO speed settings] (=322).
Expanded ISO speeds cannot be selected for movie recording.
zz Check the [ISO speed range] setting under [z: kISO speed
settings].
zz Expanded ISO speeds are not available when [z: Highlight tone
priority] is set to [Enable].
The exposure changes during movie recording.
zz If you change the shutter speed or aperture during movie recording, the
changes in the exposure may be recorded.
zz Shooting a few test movies is recommended if you intend to perform
zooming during movie recording. Zooming during movie recording may
result in recording of changes in exposure or mechanical sound of the
lens, or images may be out of focus.
603
Troubleshooting Guide
The image flickers or horizontal stripes appear during movie
recording.
zz Flickering, horizontal stripes (noise), or irregular exposures can be
caused by fluorescent lighting, LED lighting, or other light sources during
movie recording. Also, changes in the exposure (brightness) or color tone
may be recorded. In the <a> mode, a slow shutter speed may reduce
the problem. The problem may be more noticeable in time-lapse movie
recording.
The subject looks distorted during movie recording.
zz If you move the camera to the left or right (panning) or shoot a moving
subject, the image may look distorted.
I cannot take still photos during movie recording.
zz Still photos cannot be taken during movie recording. To take still photos,
stop the movie recording and perform viewfinder shooting or Live View
shooting.
604

[Display only My Menu tab]. Set [Normal display] (=587).
The file name’s first character is an underscore (“_”).
zz Set [z: Color space] to [sRGB]. If [Adobe RGB] is set, the first
character will be an underscore (=229).
607
Troubleshooting Guide
The file name starts with “MVI_”.
zz It is a movie file (=507).
The file numbering does not start from 0001.
zz If the card already contains recorded images, the image number may not
start from 0001 (=507).
The shooting date and time displayed are incorrect.
zz Make sure the correct date and time are set (=516).
zz Check the time zone and daylight saving time (=516, =517).
The date and time are not in the image.
