Handling Precautions
Camera Care
This camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physical
shock.
The camera is not waterproof and cannot be used underwater. If you
accidentally drop the camera into water, promptly consult your nearest
Canon Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry cloth. If the
camera has been exposed to salty air, wipe it with a well-wrung wet cloth.
Never leave the camera near anything having a strong magnetic field such
as a magnet or electric motor. Also avoid using or leaving the camera near
anything emitting strong radio waves such as a large antenna. Strong
magnetic fields can cause camera misoperation or destroy image data.
Do not leave the camera in excessive heat such as in a car in direct sunlight.
High temperatures can cause the camera to malfunction.
The camera contains precision electronic circuitry. Never attempt to
disassemble the camera yourself.
Do not block the mirror operation with your finger, etc. Doing so may cause a
malfunction.
Use a blower to blow away dust on the lens, viewfinder, reflex mirror, and
focusing screen. Do not use cleaners that contain organic solvents to clean
the camera body or lens. For stubborn dirt, take the camera to the nearest
Canon Service Center.
Do not touch the camera’s electrical contacts with your fingers. This is to
prevent the contacts from corroding. Corroded contacts can cause camera
misoperation.
If the camera is suddenly brought in from the cold into a warm room,
condensation may form on the camera and internal parts. To prevent
condensation, first put the camera in a sealed plastic bag and let it adjust to
the warmer temperature before taking it out of the bag.
If condensation forms on the camera, do not use the camera. This is to avoid
damaging the camera. If there is condensation, remove the lens, card and
battery from the camera, and wait until the condensation has evaporated
before using the camera.
If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the battery
and store the camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. Even while the
camera is in storage, press the shutter button a few times once in a while to
check that the camera is still working.
Avoid storing the camera where there are corrosive chemicals such as a
darkroom or chemical lab.
If the camera has not been used for an extended period, test all its functions
before using it. If you have not used the camera for some time or if there is
an important shoot coming up, have the camera checked by your Canon
dealer or check the camera yourself and make sure it is working properly.

Handling Precautions
LCD Panel and LCD Monitor
Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision
technology with over 99.99% effective pixels, there may be a few dead pixels
among the remaining 0.01% or less pixels. Dead pixels displaying only black
or red, etc., are not a malfunction. They do not affect the images recorded.
If the LCD monitor is left on for a prolonged period, screen burn-in may occur
where you see remnants of what was displayed. However, this is only
temporary and will disappear when the camera is left unused for a few days.
In low or high temperatures, the LCD monitor display may seem slow or it
may look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.
Cards
To protect the card and its recorded data, note the following:
Do not drop, bend, or wet the card. Do not subject it to excessive force,
physical shock, or vibration.
Do not store or use the card near anything having a strong magnetic field
such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to having
static electricity.
Do not leave the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source.
Store the card in a case.
Do not store the card in hot, dusty, or humid locations.
Lens
PY
O
C
After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the lens
caps and put down the lens with the rear end up to avoid
scratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.
Contacts
Cautions During Prolonged Use
If you use continuous shooting, Live View shooting, or movie shooting for a
prolonged period, the camera may become hot. Although this is not a
malfunction, holding the hot camera for a long period can cause slight skin
burns.

It takes approx. 130 min. for LP-E4N and approx. 120 min. for LPE4 to fully recharge a completely exhausted battery at 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.
The LC-E4N charger cannot charge any battery other than the Battery
Pack LP-E4N/LP-E4.
Depending on the battery’s condition, charge may not reach 100%.
30
Charging the Battery
Tips for Using the Battery and Charger
Upon purchase, the battery is not fully charged.
Recharge the battery before using.
Recharge the battery on the day before or on the day it is to be used.
Even during storage, a charged battery will gradually drain and lose its capacity.
After recharging the battery, detach it and disconnect the
charger from the power outlet.
When not using the battery and charger, attach the protective covers provided.
Use the battery in an ambient temperature range of 0°C - 45°C / 32°F - 113°F.
To attain best battery performance, an ambient temperature of 10°C 30°C / 50°F - 86°F is recommended. In cold locations such as snowy
areas, battery performance and operation time may temporarily decrease.
When not using the camera, remove the battery.
If the battery is left in the camera for a prolonged period, a small amount
of power current is released, resulting in excess discharge and shorter
battery life. Store the battery with the protective cover attached. Storing
the battery when it is fully charged may lower the battery’s performance.
The battery charger can also be used in foreign countries.
The battery charger is compatible with a 100 V AC to 240 V AC 50/60 Hz
power source. If necessary, attach a commercially-available plug adapter for
the respective country or region. Do not attach any portable voltage
transformer to the battery charger. Doing so can damage the battery charger.
Check the battery performance.
While the battery is recharging, press the charger’s
<PERFORMANCE> button to check the battery’s performance level
indicated by the Charge level indicator.
(Green) : Battery’s recharge performance is fine.
(Green) : Battery’s recharge performance is slightly degraded.
(Red) : Purchasing a new battery is recommended.
If the battery becomes exhausted quickly even after being fully
charged, the battery has reached the end of its service life.
Check the battery’s recharge performance (p.364) and purchase a
new battery.
PY
O
C
31
Charging the Battery
Use a Car’s Cigarette Lighter Socket to Recharge the Battery
With Car Battery Cable CB-570 (sold separately), you can connect the
charger’s car battery cable socket (<DC IN> terminal) to your car’s
cigarette lighter socket.
When recharging the battery this way, be sure that the car’s engine
is running. Disconnect the car battery cable from the cigarette lighter
socket when the car engine is off. If you leave the car battery cable
connected to the cigarette lighter socket, it may drain the car battery.
Do not use a transformer for the car with the battery charger.
Battery charging from a car battery is possible only with a 12 V DC
or 24 V DC car battery in a minus-grounded car. The shape or
dimensions of the cigarette lighter socket in certain cars might not be
compatible with the car battery cable.
The <CAL/CHARGE> Lamp Blinks in Red
PY
O
C
This indicates that you should calibrate the battery so that the correct
battery level is detected and the camera’s battery level indicator can
display the correct battery level. Calibration is not a required
operation. If you just want to recharge the battery, you can let the
battery start recharging automatically after approx. 10 sec. If you want
to perform calibration, press the <CALIBRATE> button while the
<CAL/CHARGE> lamp is blinking in red. The Charge level indicator
will blink in red and calibration (power discharge) will start.
After calibration is complete, the battery will start recharging
automatically. Note that the less depleted the battery is the longer
calibration will take. The <2h>, <4h>, and <10h> figures on the side of
the Charge level indicator indicate the approximate time it will take to
complete calibration (power discharge). If the <10h> indicator blinks in
red, it will take approx. 10 hours.
After calibration is complete and the battery is totally drained, it will
take a further 2 hours to recharge the battery fully. If you want to stop
calibration before it is completed and start recharging the battery,
remove the battery from the charger and attach it again.
32
Charging the Battery
None of the Charger’s Status Lamps Light Up
If the <CAL/CHARGE> lamp lights up but none of the status lamps
do, the battery’s internal temperature is outside the required 0°C 40°C / 32°F - 104°F temperature range. The battery will start
recharging when the internal temperature is within 0°C - 40°C / 32°F
- 104°F.
All Three Charge Level Indicators Blink
If any of the following occurs, remove the battery from the charger
and consult your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center: All the
Charge level lamps blink in green, all the Calibration (Discharge)
status indicator lamps blink in red, or the indicators blink alternately
in red and green (including the <CAL/CHARGE> lamp).
Also, if a battery other than the Battery Pack LP-E4N/LP-E4 is
attached to the charger, the indicators will blink in red and green
(including the <CAL/CHARGE> lamp) and the battery cannot be
recharged.
PY
O
C
The charger cannot charge any battery other than the Battery Pack LP-E4N/
LP-E4.
When two battery packs are attached to the charger, the battery attached
first will be charged first, then the other battery will be charged. Although
one battery can be recharged and another calibrated at the same time,
two batteries cannot be recharged or calibrated at the same time.
It is best to perform battery calibration when the battery is nearly
exhausted. If you try to calibrate the battery while it is fully charged, it can
take as long as approx. 15 hours to calibrate and then fully charge the
battery.
33
Installing and Removing the Battery
Load a fully charged Battery Pack LP-E4N/LP-E4 into the camera. The
camera’s viewfinder becomes bright when a battery is installed,
and darkens when the battery is removed.

After achieving focus with One-Shot AF, you can lock the focus on a subject
and recompose the shot. This is called “focus lock”. This is convenient when
you want to focus a subject not covered by the Area AF frame.
67
2: Selecting the AF Mode
AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
This AF mode is suited for moving
subjects when the focusing distance
keeps changing. While you hold down
the shutter button halfway, the
subject will be focused continuously.
The exposure is set at the moment
the picture is taken.
AF is also possible by pressing the
<p> button.
Focus Tracking with AI Servo AF
If the subject approaches or moves away from the camera at a constant
rate, the camera tracks the subject and predicts the focusing distance
immediately before the picture is taken. This is for obtaining correct
focus at the moment of exposure.
When the AF area selection mode is set to 61-point automatic selection (p.69),
the camera first uses the manually-selected AF point to focus. During
autofocusing, if the subject moves away from the manually-selected AF point,
focus tracking continues as long as the subject is covered by the Area AF frame.

AF Point Display Indications
Pressing the <S> button lights up the AF points that are cross-type AF
points for high-precision autofocusing. The blinking AF points are
horizontal-line sensitive. For details, see page 75.
When you press the <S> button, the top LCD panel displays the following:
• 61-point automatic selection AF and Zone AF (manual selection of
zone):
AF
• Single-point Spot AF, Single-point AF, and AF point expansion:
SEL (Center)/SEL AF (Off-center)
With [25: Manual AF pt. selec. pattern], you can set either [Stops at
AF area edges] or [Continuous] (p.100).
71
AF Area Selection Modes
Single-point Spot AF (Manual selection)
Although this is the same as Single-point AF, the
selected AF point <O> covers a smaller area to
focus. Effective for pinpoint focusing of
overlapping subjects such as an animal in a cage.
Since Spot AF covers a very small area, focusing
may be difficult during hand-held shooting or for a
moving subject.
Single-point AF (Manual selection)
Select one AF point <S> to be used for focusing.
PY
O
C
AF point expansion (Manual selection
)
The manually-selected AF point <S> and adjacent AF points <w>
(above, below, on the left and on the right) are used to focus. Effective
when it is difficult to track a moving subject with just one AF point.
With AI Servo AF, the manually-selected AF point <S> must focustrack the subject first. However, it is easier to focus the target subject
than with Zone AF.
With One-Shot AF, when focus is achieved with an expanded AF point,
the expanded AF point <S> will also be displayed along with the
manually-selected AF point <S>.
72
AF Area Selection Modes
AF point expansion (Manual selection, surrounding points)
The manually-selected AF point <S> and adjacent AF points <w> are
used to focus. The AF point expansion is larger than with AF point
expansion (Manual selection ), so the focusing is executed over a
wider area. Effective when it is difficult to track a moving subject with
just one AF point.
AI Servo AF and One-Shot AF work in the same way as with AF point
expansion (Manual selection ) mode (p.72).
Zone AF (Manual selection of zone)
The 61 AF points are divided into nine zones for focusing. All the AF
points in the selected zone are used to automatically select the point of
focus. It makes achieving focus easier than with Single-point AF or AF
point expansion and it is effective for moving subjects.
However, since it is inclined to focus the nearest subject, focusing a
specific target is harder than with Single-point AF or AF point
expansion.
The AF point(s) achieving focus is displayed as <S>.
PY
O
C
73
AF Area Selection Modes
61-point automatic selection AF
All the AF points are used to focus.
With One-Shot AF, pressing the shutter button
halfway will display the AF point(s) <S> that
achieved focus. If multiple AF points are displayed,
it means they all have achieved focus. This mode
tends to focus the nearest subject.
With AI Servo AF, the manually-selected (p.71) AF
point <S> is used first to achieve focus. The AF
point(s) achieving focus is displayed as <S>.
PY
O
C
With 61-point automatic selection AF or Zone AF, the active AF point
<S> will keep switching to track the subject in AI Servo AF mode.
However, under certain shooting conditions (such as when the subject is
small), it may not be able to track the subject. Also, in low temperatures,
the tracking response is slower.
With Single-point Spot AF, focusing with the Speedlite’s AF-assist beam
may be difficult.
If the camera cannot focus with the EOS-dedicated Speedlite’s AF-assist
beam, set the AF area selection mode to Single-point AF (Manual
selection) and select the center AF point to focus.
When the AF point(s) lights up, part or all of the viewfinder may light up in
red. This is a characteristic of AF point display (using liquid crystal).
In low temperatures, the AF point’s blinking (p.71) may be difficult to see.
This is a characteristic of AF point display (using liquid crystal).
If you set [24: Orientation linked AF point] to [

AF points], you can set the AF area selection mode and manuallyselected AF point (or Zone) separately for vertical and horizontal
shooting (p.99).

About the AF Sensor
The camera’s AF sensor has 61 AF points. The illustration below shows
the AF sensor pattern corresponding to each AF point. With f/2.8 or
larger maximum aperture lenses, high-precision AF is possible at the
viewfinder center.
Depending on the lens attached to the camera, the number of usable
AF points and AF pattern will differ. For details, see pages 76 to 82.

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

Lenses and Usable AF Points
Although the camera has 61 AF points, the number of usable AF
points and focusing patterns will differ depending on the lens. The
lenses are thereby classified into eight groups from A to H. Check
which group your lens belongs to.
When using a lens from groups F to H, fewer AF points will be usable.
When you press the <S> button, the AF points indicated by the mark
will blink. (The / / AF points will stay lit.)
“Extender EF1.4x” and “Extender EF2x” apply to all the I/II/III models.
Regarding new lenses marketed after the EOS-1D X, check Canon’s
Web site to see which group they belong to.
Some lenses may not be available in certain countries or regions.
Group A
Autofocusing with 61 points is possible. All of the AF area selection
modes are selectable.
: Dual cross-type AF point. Subject
tracking is superior and the focusing
precision is higher than with other AF
points.
: Cross-type AF point. Subject
tracking is superior and highprecision focusing is achieved.
: AF points sensitive to horizontal
lines.

Case 3: Instantly focus on subjects suddenly entering AF points
Default settings
• Tracking sensitivity:
[Responsive: +1]
• Accel./decel. tracking: [+1]
• AF pt auto switching: [0]
Once an AF point starts tracking the
subject, this setting enables the camera
to focus consecutive subjects at different
distances. If a new subject appears in
front of the target subject, the camera will
start focusing the new subject. Also
effective when you want to always focus
on the closest subject.

3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)
About the Parameters
Tracking sensitivity
Sets the subject-tracking sensitivity
during AI Servo AF when an obstacle
enters the AF points or when the AF
points stray from the subject.
[0]
Standard setting suited for most moving subjects.
[Locked on: -2 / Locked on: -1]
The camera will try to continue focusing the subject even if an
obstacle enters the AF points or if the subject strays from the AF
points. The -2 setting makes the camera track the target subject
longer than with the -1 setting.
However, if the camera focuses the wrong subject, it may take slightly
longer to switch subjects and refocus the target subject.
PY
O
C
[Responsive: +2 / Responsive:+1]
Once an AF point tracks a subject, the camera can focus consecutive
subjects at different distances. Also effective when you want to
always focus on the closest subject. The +2 setting makes it quicker
to focus the next consecutive subject than with +1.
However, the camera will be more prone to focus on the wrong
subject.
[Tracking sensitivity] is the parameter named [AI Servo tracking
sensitivity] in the EOS-1D Mark III/IV, EOS-1Ds Mark III, and EOS 7D.
88
3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)
Acceleration/deceleration tracking
This sets the tracking sensitivity for
moving subjects whose speed can
suddenly change dramatically by starting
or stopping suddenly, etc.
[0]
Suited for subjects that move at a fixed speed.
[+2 / +1]
Effective for subjects having sudden movements, sudden
acceleration/deceleration, or sudden stops. Even if the moving
subject’s speed suddenly changes dramatically, the camera
continues to focus the target subject. For example, for an
approaching subject, the camera becomes less prone to focus
behind it, which would result in a blurred subject. For a subject
stopping suddenly, the camera becomes less prone to focus in front
of it. Setting +2 can track dramatic changes in the moving subject’s
speed better than with +1.
However, since the camera will be sensitive to even slight
movements of the subject, the focusing may be unstable
momentarily.

89
3 Selecting AI Servo AF Characteristics (For a Subject)
AF point auto switching
This sets the switching sensitivity of the
AF points as they track a subject that
moves dramatically up, down, left, or
right.
This setting takes effect in the following
AF area selection modes: AF point
expansion (Manual selection
), AF
point expansion (Manual selection,
surrounding points), Zone AF (Manual
selection), 61-point automatic selection
AF.
[0]
Standard setting for gradual AF point switching.
[+2 / +1]
Even if the target subject moves dramatically up, down, left, or right
and moves away from the AF point, the AF point switches to another
one to continue focusing the subject. The camera switches to the AF
point deemed most likely to focus the subject based on the subject’s
continual movement, contrast, etc. Setting +2 makes the camera
more prone to switch the AF point than with +1.
However, with a wide-angle lens having a wide depth of field or if the
subject is too small in the frame, the camera may focus with the
wrong AF point.

Auto AF point selection: EOS iTR AF
When the AF area selection mode is set to 61-point automatic selection
AF or Zone AF, AF is possible while using the subject’s color or face
detection information.
Using this function makes it easier to continue focusing a moving
subject with AI Servo AF. Using this function also makes it easier to
focus human subjects in One-Shot AF mode.
ON: Enable
The AF point is automatically selected
based on the AF information combined
with the color and facial information of
the subject. With AI Servo AF, the color
of the area where focus is initially
achieved is recorded.
The camera then tracks that color by switching AF points. If a human
face is detected, the AF tracking and AF point switching switch to this
face. With 61-point automatic selection AF and AI Servo AF, you can
manually select the initial AF point to be used to focus. If multiple faces
are detected, the camera focuses using the AF point on the optimum
face given current conditions.
With One-Shot AF, the camera selects the AF point based on face position
information, and you can give priority to composition when taking the picture.
PY
O
C
OFF: Disable
The AF point is selected automatically based only on the AF information.
When [Auto AF pt sel: EOS iTR AF] is set to [Enable], focus will take
slightly longer than with [Disable].
Even if you set [Enable], the desired result may not be obtained
depending on the shooting conditions and subject.
Under low-light conditions when the flash emits the AF-assist beam
automatically, the AF point is selected automatically based only on the
AF information. (The AF does not use facial information.)
Face detection may not work if the face is small or in low-light condition.

3 Customizing AF Functions
Lens drive when AF impossible
If focus cannot be achieved with autofocus, you can have the camera
keep searching for the correct focus or have it stop searching.
ON: Continue focus search
If focus cannot be achieved with
autofocus, the lens is driven to search for
the correct focus.
OFF: Stop focus search
If autofocus starts and the focus is far off
or if focus cannot be achieved, the lens
drive stops. This prevents the lens from
becoming grossly out of focus due to
focus searching.
Super telephoto lenses can become grossly out of focus during continuous
focus search, taking more time to achieve focus the next time. Therefore,
setting [Stop focus search] is recommended for super telephoto lenses.

Notes for AF Microadjustment
The AF’s point of focus will vary slightly depending on the subject
conditions, brightness, zoom position, and other shooting conditions.
Therefore, even if you perform AF Microadjustment, focus may still not
be achieved at the suitable position.
The adjustment data will be retained even if you clear all the camera
settings (p.58). However, the setting itself will be [Disable].
It is best to make the adjustment at the actual location where you will
shoot. This will make the adjustment more precise.
Using a tripod when making the adjustment is recommended.
To check the result of the adjustment, setting the image size to JPEG L
(Large) and the JPEG quality (compression) to 8 or higher is
recommended.
The adjustment amount of one step varies depending on the maximum
aperture of the lens. Keep adjusting, shooting, and checking the focus
repeatedly to adjust the AF’s point of focus.
AF adjustment is not possible for Live View shooting’s [Live mode] and
[u Live mode] (contrast AF).
109
When Autofocus Fails
Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the viewfinder’s focus confirmation
light <o> blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:
Subjects difficult to focus
Very low-contrast subjects
(Example: Blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.)
Subjects in very low light
Extremely backlit or reflective subjects
(Example: Car with a highly reflective body, etc.)
Near and far subjects covered by an AF point
(Example: Animal in a cage, etc.)
Repetitive patterns
(Example: Skyscraper windows, computer keyboards, etc.)
In such cases, do either of the following:
(1) With One-Shot AF, focus on an object at the same distance as the

The file size, possible shots, and maximum burst during continuous shooting
are based on Canon’s 8 GB testing card and Canon’s testing standards (JPEG
quality 8, ISO 100, and Standard Picture Style). These figures will vary
depending on the subject, card brand, ISO speed, Picture Style, Custom
Functions, and other settings.
The maximum burst applies to <o> high-speed continuous shooting.
Figures in parentheses apply to an Ultra DMA (UDMA) mode 7, 128 GB card
based on Canon’s testing standards.
124
Setting the Image-Recording Quality
If you select both RAW and JPEG, the same image will be recorded
simultaneously to the card in both RAW and JPEG at the imagerecording quality that was set. The two images will be recorded with the
same file number (file extension .JPG for JPEG and .CR2 for RAW).
In accordance with the selected image size, the <p> or <1> icon will
be displayed on the right side in the viewfinder.
The image size icons indicate the following: 1 (RAW), 41 (Medium
RAW), 61 (Small RAW), JPEG, 3 (Large), H (Medium 1), 5
(Medium 2), 6 (Small).
About RAW
A RAW image is raw data output by the image sensor converted to
digital data. The image data is recorded to the card as is, and you can
select the quality as follows: 1, 41, or 61.
A 1 image can be processed with [32: RAW image processing]
(p.290) and saved as a JPEG image. (41 and 61 images cannot
be processed with the camera.) While the RAW image itself does not
change, you can process the RAW image according to different
processing conditions to create any number of JPEG images from it.
With all RAW images, you can use Digital Photo Professional (provided
software, p.410) to make various adjustments and then generate a
JPEG, TIFF, etc., image incorporating those adjustments.
PY
O
C
Commercially-available software may not be able to display RAW images.
Using the provided software is recommended.
125
Setting the Image-Recording Quality
One-touch Image Quality Setting
Custom Controls let you assign image-recording quality to the <B>
button, Multi-function button 2, or depth-of-field preview button with
[One-touch image quality setting], so that you can temporarily switch
image quality settings at the touch of a button before shooting.
For details, see Custom Controls (p.337).
If [51: Record func+card/folder sel.] is set to [Rec. separately], you
cannot switch to the One-touch image quality setting.
Maximum Burst During Continuous Shooting
The number of shots for the maximum burst is displayed
on the right in the viewfinder. If the maximum burst for
continuous shooting is 99 or higher, “99” will be displayed.
PY
O
C
The maximum burst is displayed even when a card is not inserted in the
camera. Make sure that a card is inserted before taking a picture.
If the viewfinder displays “99” for the maximum burst, it means the
maximum burst is 99 or higher. If the maximum burst decreases to 98 or
lower and the internal buffer memory becomes full, “buSY” will be
displayed in the viewfinder and on the top LCD panel. Shooting will then
be disabled temporarily. If you stop continuous shooting, the maximum
burst will increase. After all the captured images are written to the card,
the maximum burst will be as listed on page 124.
The maximum burst indicator in the viewfinder will not change even
when you use a UDMA CF card. However, the maximum burst shown in
parentheses on page 124 will apply.

102400), and “H2” (equivalent to ISO 204800) (p.154).
Shooting in high temperatures may result in images that look grainier.
Long exposures can also cause irregular colors in the image.
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (such as dots of light and
banding) may become noticeable.
Shooting long exposures at high ISO speeds may result in irregular
colors in the image.
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.
128
i: Setting the ISO Speed
As H1 (equivalent to ISO 102400) and H2 (equivalent to ISO 204800) are
expanded ISO speed settings, noise (such as dots of light and banding) and
irregular colors will be more noticeable, and the resolution will be lower than usual.
If you use a high ISO speed and flash to shoot a close subject, overexposure may result.
If [ISO speed range] is set to [Maximum: 51200] and you shoot a movie
while ISO 32000/40000/51200 is set, the ISO speed will switch to ISO 25600
(during manual-exposure movie shooting). Even if you switch to still photo
shooting, the ISO speed will not switch back to the previous ISO speed.
If L (equivalent to ISO 50) is set and you shoot a movie, the ISO speed
will switch to ISO 100 (during manual-exposure movie shooting). Even if
you switch to still photo shooting, the ISO speed will not switch back to L.
If ISO 32000 or higher (when the camera’s internal temperature is low,
ISO 20000 or higher) is set, the maximum continuous shooting speed
with <o> will be approx. 10 shots/sec.
Under [z2: ISO speed settings], you can use [ISO speed range] to
expand the settable ISO speed range from equivalent to ISO 50 (L) to
equivalent to ISO 204800 (H2) (p.130).

About White Balance
To the human eye, a white object looks white regardless of the type of lighting.
With a digital camera, the color temperature is adjusted with software to make
the white areas look white. This adjustment serves as the basis for the color
correction. The result is natural-looking colors in the pictures.
You can also set the white balance under [z1: White balance].
To set a Personal WB, select [PC-*]. Refer to the EOS Utility Instruction
Manual for the procedure to register a Personal WB.
141
O Custom White Balance
Custom white balance enables you to manually set the white balance
for a specific light source for better accuracy. Perform this procedure
under the actual light source to be used.
Up to five sets of Custom white balance data can be registered to the
camera. You can also append a name (caption) to the registered
Custom white balance data.
3 Registering Custom WB
There are two ways to register Custom white balance data. You can either

With just one shot, three images having a different color balance can be
recorded simultaneously. Based on the color temperature of the current white
balance setting, the image will be bracketed with a blue/amber bias or
magenta/green bias. This is called white balance bracketing (WB-BKT). White
balance bracketing is possible up to ±3 levels in single-level increments.

During WB bracketing, the maximum burst for continuous shooting will
be lower and the number of possible shots will also decrease to approx.
one-third the normal number.
You can also set white balance correction and AEB together with white
balance bracketing. If you set AEB in combination with white balance
bracketing, a total of nine images will be recorded for a single shot.
Since three images are recorded for one shot, the card will take longer to
record the shot.
When white balance bracketing is set, the white balance icon will blink.
You can change the number of shots for white balance bracketing (p.325).
“BKT” stands for bracketing.

The camera already contains lens peripheral illumination correction
data and chromatic aberration correction data for approx. 25 lenses. If
you select [Enable], the peripheral illumination correction and
chromatic aberration correction will be applied automatically for any
lens whose correction data is registered in the camera.
With EOS Utility (provided software), you can check which lenses have
their correction data registered in the camera. You can also register the
correction data for unregistered lenses. For details, refer to the
Software Instruction Manual (CD-ROM) for EOS Utility (p.412).

Notes for Peripheral Illumination Correction and Chromatic Aberration
Correction
Corrections cannot be applied afterwards to JPEG images captured
when [Disable] was set.
When using a non-Canon lens, setting the corrections to [Disable] is
recommended, even if [Correction data available] is displayed.
If you use the magnified view during Live View shooting, the peripheral
illumination correction and chromatic aberration correction will not be
reflected in the image.
If the effect of the correction is not so visible, magnify the image and
check it.
The corrections are also applied when an Extender is attached.
If the correction data for the attached lens is not registered to the
camera, the result will be the same as when the correction is set to
[Disable].
If the lens does not have distance information, the correction amount will
be lower.

C
As with “100EOS1D” for example, the folder name starts with three digits (the
folder number) followed by five alphanumeric characters. A folder can contain
up to 9999 images (file number 0001 - 9999). When a folder becomes full, a
new folder with the folder number increased by one is created automatically.
Also, if manual reset (p.163) is executed, a new folder will be created
automatically. Folders numbered from 100 to 999 can be created.
Creating Folders with a Personal Computer
With the card open on the screen, create a new folder named “DCIM”. Open
the DCIM folder and create as many folders as necessary to save and
organize your images. The folder name must follow the format “100ABC_D”.
The first three digits are the folder number, from 100 to 999. The final five
characters can be any combination of upper- and lower-case letters from A to
Z, numerals, and the underscore “_”. The space cannot be used. Also note
that two folder names cannot share the same three-digit folder number (for
example, “100ABC_D” and “100W_XYZ”), even if the other five characters in
each name are different.
159
3 Changing the File Name
The file name has four alphanumeric characters
followed by a four-digit image number (p.162) and
(Ex.) BE3B0001.JPG
extension. The first four alphanumeric characters
are set upon factory shipment and unique to the
camera. However, you can change them.
With “User setting1”, you can change and register the four characters
as desired. With “User setting2”, if you register three characters, the
fourth character from the left will be appended automatically to indicate
the image size.

meaning of the image size characters is as follows:
“*** L” = 3, 1
“***M” = H, 41
“*** N” = 5
“***S” = 6, 61
When the image is transferred to a personal computer, the automatically
appended fourth character will be included. You can then see the image size
without having to open the image. RAW or JPEG images can be
distinguished with the extension.
The first character cannot be an underscore “_”.
The extension will be “.JPG” for JPEG images, “.CR2” for RAW images,
and “.MOV” for movies.
When you shoot a movie with User setting2, the file name’s fourth
character will be an underscore “_”.

3 File Numbering Methods
The four-digit file number is like the frame
number on a roll of film. The captured images

Even after you replace the card, create a folder, or switch the target
card (such as f → g), the file numbering continues in sequence up
to 9999 for the images saved. This is convenient when you want to save
images numbered anywhere between 0001 to 9999 in multiple cards or
folders into one folder in your personal computer.
If the replacement card or existing folder already contains images
recorded previously, the file numbering of the new images may continue
from the file numbering of the existing images in the card or folder. If
you want to use continuous file numbering, you should use a newlyformatted card each time.

This color space is mainly used for commercial printing and other
industrial uses. This setting is not recommended if you do not know
about image processing, Adobe RGB, and Design rule for Camera File
System 2.0 (Exif 2.21 or higher). The image will look very subdued in a
sRGB personal computer environment and with printers not compatible
with Design rule for Camera File System 2.0 (Exif 2.21 or higher). Postprocessing of the image with software will therefore be required.
If the captured still photo was shot in the Adobe RGB color space, the
first character in the file name will be an underscore “_”.

The shutter speed and aperture displays are blinking.
Since it is too dark, taking the picture may result in a blurred subject due
to camera shake. Using a tripod or a Canon EX-series Speedlite (p.194)
(sold separately) is recommended.
When flash was used, the bottom part of the picture came out
unnaturally dark.
If a hood is attached to the lens, it can obstruct the flash coverage. If the
subject is close, detach the hood before taking the picture with flash.

2 Mirror Lockup
In very bright light such as at the beach or a ski slope on a sunny day,
take the picture promptly after mirror lockup.
Do not point the camera toward the sun. The sun’s heat can scorch and
damage the shutter curtains.
If you use the self-timer and mirror lockup in combination with bulb
exposure, keep pressing the shutter button completely (self-timer delay
time + bulb exposure time). If you let go of the shutter button during the
self-timer countdown, there will be a shutter-release sound, but no
picture will be taken.
During mirror lockup, shooting function settings and menu operations,
etc. are disabled.
When [Enable] is set, single shooting will take effect even if the drive
mode is set to continuous. When [Enable: Mirror down w/s] is set,
the current drive mode will take effect for the shooting.
You can also use the self-timer with mirror lockup.
If 30 seconds elapse after the mirror has locked up, it will go back down
automatically. Pressing the shutter button completely again locks up the
mirror again.
For mirror lockup shooting, using a tripod and Remote Switch RS-80N3
(sold separately) or Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 (sold separately)
is recommended (p.183).

EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlites
An EX-series Speedlite (sold separately) makes flash photography as
easy as normal shooting.
For detailed instructions, refer to the EX-series Speedlite’s
instruction manual. This camera is a Type-A camera that can use all
the features of EX-series Speedlites.
To set the flash functions and flash Custom Functions with the camera’s
menu, see pages 197-202.

This enables you to obtain a proper
C flash exposure for a specific part
of the subject. Aim the viewfinder center over the subject, then press
the camera’s <B> button and take the picture.
Flash exposure compensation
In the same way as normal exposure compensation, flash exposure
compensation can be set. You can set flash exposure compensation
up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments.
Press the camera’s <Q> button, then turn the <5> dial while
looking at the viewfinder or top LCD panel.
If [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.150) is not set to [Disable], the image
may still look bright even if a darker flash exposure compensation amount
was set.
When it is difficult to achieve focus with autofocus, the EOS-dedicated,
external Speedlite may automatically emit the AF-assist beam.

D Flash Photography
Using Non-EX-series Canon Speedlites
With an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlite set to A-TTL or TTL
autoflash mode, the flash can be fired at full output only.
Set the camera’s shooting mode to <a> (manual exposure) or
<f> (aperture-priority AE) and adjust the aperture setting before
shooting.
When using a Speedlite that has manual flash mode, shoot in the
manual flash mode.
Using Non-Canon Flash Units
Sync Speed
The camera can synchronize with non-Canon compact flash units at
1/250 sec. and slower speeds. With large studio flash units, since the
flash duration is longer than compact flash units, set the sync speed
within 1/125 sec. to 1/30 sec. Be sure to test the flash synchronization
before shooting.
PC Terminal
PY
O
C
The camera’s PC terminal can be
used with flash units having a sync
cord. The PC terminal is threaded to
prevent inadvertent disconnection.
The camera’s PC terminal has no
polarity. You can connect any sync
cord regardless of its polarity.
Cautions for Live View shooting
If you use a non-Canon flash unit with Live View shooting, set [z4:
Silent LV shoot.] to [Disable] (p.212). The flash will not fire if it is set to
[Mode 1] or [Mode 2].
195
D Flash Photography
If the camera is used with a flash unit or flash accessory dedicated to
another camera brand, the camera may not operate properly and
malfunction may result.
Do not connect to the camera’s PC terminal any flash unit requiring 250
V or more.
Do not attach a high-voltage flash unit on the camera’s hot shoe. It may
not fire.
A flash unit attached to the camera’s hot shoe and a flash unit connected to
the PC terminal can both be used at the same time.
Metered Manual Flash Exposure
This function is for close-up flash photography when you want to set the
flash level manually. Use an 18% gray card and an EX-series Speedlite with
manual flash mode. Follow the instructions below:
1. Set the camera and Speedlite settings.
• Set the camera’s shooting mode to <a> or <f>.
• Set the Speedlite to manual flash mode.
2. Focus the subject.
• Focus manually.
3. Set up the 18% gray card.
• Place the gray card at the subject’s position.
• In the viewfinder, the entire spot metering circle should cover the gray
card.
4. Press the <B> button. (8)
5. Set the flash exposure level.

Live View Shooting Cautions
Image Quality
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (such as dots of light and
banding) may become noticeable.
Shooting in high temperatures may cause noise and irregular colors in
the image.
If Live View shooting is used continuously for a long period, the camera’s
internal temperature may rise, degrading image quality. Stop Live View
shooting when not shooting images.
If you shoot a long exposure while the camera’s internal temperature is
high, image quality may be degraded. Stop Live View shooting and wait
a few minutes before shooting again.
White <s> and Red <E> Internal Temperature Warning
If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged Live
View shooting or a high ambient temperature, a white icon <s> will
appear. If you continue shooting while this icon is displayed, the image
quality may be degraded. It is recommended to temporarily exit Live
View shooting and allow the camera to cool down before shooting again.
If the camera’s internal temperature further increases while the white icon
<s> is displayed, a red icon <E> will start blinking. This blinking icon is a
warning that the Live View shooting will soon end automatically. If this
happens, you will not be able to shoot again until the camera’s internal
temperature decreases. Turn off the power and let the camera rest for a while.
Using Live View shooting at a high temperature for a prolonged period
will cause the <s> and <E> icons to appear earlier. When you are not
shooting, turn off the camera.
If the camera’s internal temperature is high, the image quality of high ISO
speed images or long exposures may be degraded even before the
white icon <s> is displayed.
PY
O
C
Shooting Result
If you take the picture in magnified view, the exposure may not come out
as desired. Return to the normal view before taking the picture. In
magnified view, the shutter speed and aperture will be displayed in
orange. Even if you take the picture in magnified view, the image will be
captured in the normal view.
If [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] (p.150) is not set to [Disable], the
image may look bright even if a decreased exposure compensation or
decreased flash exposure compensation was set.
221
Live View Shooting Cautions
Live View Image
Under low- or bright-light conditions, the Live View image may not reflect
the brightness of the captured image.
If the light source within the image changes, the screen may flicker. If this
happens, exit Live View shooting and resume shooting under the actual
light source to be used.
If you point the camera in a different direction, it may throw off the Live
View image’s correct brightness momentarily. Wait until the brightness
level stabilizes before shooting.
If there is a very bright light source in the picture, the bright area may
appear black on the LCD monitor. However, the actual captured image
will correctly show the bright area.
In low light, if you set the [52: LCD 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.
When you magnify the image, the image sharpness may look more
pronounced than it really is.
Custom Functions

Notes on Movie Shooting
The camera cannot autofocus continuously like a camcorder.
Autofocusing during movie shooting may momentarily throw the focus far
off or change the exposure.
When you autofocus during movie shooting under low-light conditions
using a USM lens, horizontal stripes (noise) may be recorded. Note that
with certain lenses equipped with the electronic focusing ring, similar
noise may be recorded even with manual focusing (MF).
During movie shooting, do not point the lens toward the sun. The sun’s
heat can damage the camera’s internal components.
Under [51: Record func+card/folder sel.], even if [Record func.] is set
to [Rec. to multiple] (p.118), the movie cannot be recorded to both Card
1 <f> and Card 2 <g>. If [Rec. separately] or [Rec. to multiple] is
set, the movie will be recorded to the card which is set for [Playback].
If <Q> is set and the ISO speed or aperture changes during movie
shooting, the white balance may also change.
If you shoot a movie under fluorescent or LED lighting, the movie may
flicker.
Zooming the lens during movie shooting is not recommended. Zooming
the lens can cause changes in the exposure regardless of whether the
lens’ maximum aperture changes or not. Exposure changes may be
recorded as a result.
Cautions for movie shooting are on pages 247 and 248.

Sound Recording/Sound-Recording Level
[Auto]
[Manual]
: The sound-recording level is adjusted automatically. Auto
level control will operate automatically in response to the
sound level.
: For advanced users. You can adjust the sound recording
level to one of 64 levels. Select [Rec. level] and look at
the level meter while turning the <5> dial to adjust the
sound-recording level. While looking at the peak hold
indicator (approx. 3 sec.), adjust so that the level meter
sometimes lights up the “12” (-12 dB) mark on the right for
the loudest sounds. If it exceeds “0”, the sound will be
distorted.
: Sound will not be recorded.

[Disable]
Wind Filter
When set to [Enable], it reduces wind noise when there is wind
outdoors. This feature works only with the built-in microphone.
Note that [Enable] will also reduce low bass sounds, so set this function
to [Disable] when there is no wind. It will record a more natural sound
than with [Enable].
240
3 Setting the Sound Recording
Using the microphone
The built-in microphone records monaural sound. Stereo sound
recording is possible by connecting an external stereo microphone
(commercially-available) equipped with a miniature stereo plug (3.5
mm) to the camera’s external microphone IN terminal (p.21). When
an external microphone is connected, sound recording will switch
automatically to the external microphone.
PY
O
C
The sound volume balance between L (left) and R (right) cannot be
adjusted.
Both L and R record audio at a 48 kHz/16-bit sampling rate.
If [z5: Silent Control] is set to [Enable h] (p.242), you can adjust the
sound-recording level with the <h> touch pad to reduce the operation
noise during movie shooting.
241
3 Silent Control
This function is convenient when you want to change the ISO speed,
sound-recording level, etc., silently while shooting a movie.
When [z5: Silent Control] is set to
[Enable h], you can use the touch pad
<h> on the inner ring of the Quick
Control Dial.
You can operate the camera silently just
by touching the top, bottom, left, or right
of <h>.

3 Setting the Time Code
The time code is a time reference
recorded automatically to synchronize

change automatically.
“Frames” are not displayed during movie shooting and movie playback.
Drop Frame
If the frame rate setting is 6(29.97 fps) or 8(59.94 fps), the time
code’s frame count causes a discrepancy between the actual time and
time code. This discrepancy can be corrected automatically. This
correction function is called drop frame.
[Enable] : The discrepancy is corrected automatically by skipping
time code numbers.
[Disable] : The discrepancy is not corrected.
When the frame rate is set to 4 (23.976fps), 5 (25.00fps), or 7
(50.00fps), the drop frame function does not take effect. (If 4 is set or [53:

Movie Shooting Cautions
White <s> and Red <E> Internal Temperature Warning Icons
If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged movie
shooting or a high ambient temperature, a white icon <s> will appear.
Even if you shoot a movie while this icon is displayed, the movie’s image
quality will hardly be affected. However, if you shoot still photos, the
image quality of the still photos may degrade. You should stop shooting
still photos for a while and allow the camera to cool down.
If the camera’s internal temperature further increases while the white
icon <s> is displayed, a red icon <E> may start blinking. This blinking
icon is a warning that movie shooting will soon stop automatically. If this
happens, you will not be able to shoot again until the camera’s internal
temperature decreases. Turn off the power and let the camera rest for a
while.
Shooting a movie at a high temperature for a prolonged period will cause
the <s> and <E> icons to appear earlier. When you are not shooting,
turn off the camera.
Recording and Image Quality
PY
O
C
If the attached lens has an Image Stabilizer, the Image Stabilizer will
operate at all times even if you do not press the shutter button halfway.
The Image Stabilizer consumes battery power and may shorten the total
movie shooting time or decrease the number of possible shots. If you
use a tripod or if the Image Stabilizer is not necessary, you should set the
IS switch to <2>.
The camera’s built-in microphone will also pick up camera operation
noise. Using a commercially-available external microphone can prevent
(or reduce) these noises from being recorded.
Do not connect anything other than an external microphone to the
camera’s external microphone IN terminal.
If there is a very bright light source in the picture, the bright area may
appear black on the LCD monitor. In movies, the bright areas will be
recorded in almost the same way you see it on the LCD monitor.
In low light, noise or irregular colors may appear in the image. In movies,
the bright areas will be recorded in almost the same way you see it on
the LCD monitor.
247
Movie Shooting Cautions
Recording and Image Quality
If you use a card with a slow writing speed, a five-level
indicator may appear on the right of the screen during movie
shooting. It indicates how much data has not yet been
written to the card (remaining capacity of the internal buffer
memory). The slower the card, the faster the indicator will
climb upward. If the indicator becomes full, movie shooting
will stop automatically.
Indicator
If the card has a fast writing speed, the indicator will either
not appear or the level (if displayed) will hardly go upward.
First, shoot a few test movies to see if the card can write fast enough.
Still Photo Shooting During Movie Shooting
Regarding the image quality of still photos, see “Image Quality” on page
221.
Playback and TV Connection
PY
O
C
In autoexposure shooting, shutter-priority AE, or aperture-priority AE
modes, if the brightness changes during movie shooting, the movie may
freeze temporarily. In such cases, shoot movies with manual exposure.
If you connect the camera to a TV set (p.273, 276) and shoot a movie,
the TV will not output any sound during the shooting. However, the
sound will be properly recorded.

About peripheral illumination correction, distortion
correction, and chromatic aberration correction
To execute peripheral illumination correction, distortion correction, and

for the shot must be registered in the camera. If the lens data has not been
registered in the camera, use EOS Utility (provided software, p.410) to

Sensor Cleaning
The camera has a Self Cleaning Sensor Unit attached
to the image sensor’s front layer (low-pass filter) to
shake off dust automatically.
PY
O
C
The Dust Delete Data can also be appended to the
image so that the dust spots remaining can be erased
automatically by Digital Photo Professional (provided
software, p.410).
About 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 visible spots still remain after the automatic sensor
cleaning, having the sensor cleaned by a Canon Service Center is
recommended.
Even while the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit is operating, you can
press the shutter button halfway to interrupt the cleaning and start
shooting immediately.
297
f Automatic Sensor Cleaning
Whenever you set the power switch to <1/R> or <2>, the
Self Cleaning Sensor Unit operates to automatically shake off the dust
on the front of the sensor. Normally, you need not pay attention to this
operation. However, you can select to perform sensor cleaning at any
time, or disable it.

Even if you repeat the sensor cleaning, the result will not improve much.
Immediately after the sensor cleaning is finished, the [Clean nowf]
option will remain disabled temporarily.
Disabling Automatic Sensor Cleaning
In step 2, select [Auto cleaningf] and set it to [Disable].
X The sensor cleaning will no longer be executed when you set the
power switch to <1/R> or <2>.
298
3 Appending Dust Delete Data
Normally, the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit will eliminate most of the dust
that may be visible on captured images. However, in case visible dust
still remains, you can append the Dust Delete Data to the image for
erasing the dust spots later. The Dust Delete Data is used by Digital
Photo Professional (provided software, p.410) to erase the dust spots
automatically.
Preparation
Prepare a solid white object such as a sheet of paper.
Set the lens focal length to 50 mm or longer.
Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and set the focus to infinity
(∞). If the lens has no distance scale, look at the front of the lens and
turn the focusing ring clockwise all the way.

About the Dust Delete Data
After the Dust Delete Data is obtained, it is appended to all the JPEG
and RAW images captured thereafter. Before an important shoot, you
should update the Dust Delete Data by obtaining it again.
For details about using Digital Photo Professional (provided software,
p.410) to erase dust spots, refer to the Software Instruction Manual
(p.412) on the Software Instruction Manual CD-ROM.
The Dust Delete Data appended to the image is so small that it hardly
affects the image file size.
Be sure to use a solid-white object such as a new sheet of white paper. If the
paper has any pattern or design, it may be recognized as dust data and
affect the accuracy of the dust deletion with the software.

3 Manual Sensor Cleaning
Dust that could not be removed by the automatic sensor cleaning can
be removed manually with a blower, etc. Before cleaning the sensor,
detach the lens from the camera.
The surface of the image sensor is extremely delicate. If the
sensor needs to be cleaned directly, having it done by a Canon
Service Center is recommended.

3 Manual Sensor Cleaning
While cleaning the sensor, never do any of the following. Doing any
of the following will cut off the power and close the shutter. The
shutter curtains and image sensor may then get damaged.
• Setting the power switch to <2>.
• Removing or inserting the battery.
The surface of the image sensor is extremely delicate. Clean the sensor
with care.
Use a plain blower without any brush attached. A brush can scratch the
sensor.
Do not insert the blower tip inside the camera beyond the lens mount. If
the power is cut off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains or
reflex mirror may get damaged.
Never use canned air or gas to clean the sensor. The blowing force can
damage the sensor or the spray gas can freeze on the sensor.
If the battery level becomes low while you clean the sensor, the beeper
will sound as a warning. Stop cleaning the sensor.
If a smudge that cannot be removed with a blower remains, having the
sensor cleaned by a Canon Service Center is recommended.

Spot metering will be linked to the manually-selected AF point. If the AF area
selection mode is set to 61-point automatic selection or Zone AF (automatic
Zone selection), spot metering is performed at the viewfinder center.
Safety shift
OFF: Disable
Tv/Av: Shutter speed/Aperture
This function takes effect in the shutter-priority AE (s) and aperture-priority AE
(f) modes. If the subject’s brightness changes and the standard exposure
cannot be obtained within the autoexposure range, the camera will automatically
change the manually-selected setting to obtain a standard exposure.
ISO: ISO speed
This function takes effect in the Program AE (d), shutter-priority AE
(s), and aperture-priority AE (f) modes. If the subject’s brightness
changes and the standard exposure cannot be obtained within the
autoexposure range, the camera will automatically change the manually
set ISO speed to obtain a standard exposure.
PY

If the safety shift automatically sets ISO 32000 or higher (when the camera’s
internal temperature is low, ISO 20000 or higher), when [ISO speed] is set, the
maximum continuous shooting speed at <o> will be approx. 10 shots/sec.
Under [z2: ISO speed settings], even if [ISO speed range] or [Min.
shutter spd.] is changed from the default setting, safety shift will
override it if a standard exposure cannot be obtained.
The minimum and maximum sensitivities of the safety shift using the ISO
speed will be determined by the [Auto ISO range] setting (p.131).
However, if the manually set ISO speed exceeds the [Auto ISO range],
the safety shift will extend up to the manually set ISO speed.
If [Shutter speed/Aperture] or [ISO speed] is set, safety shift will take
effect if necessary even when flash is used.

Its service life is approx. 5 years. If the date/time is reset when camera
is turned on, follow the procedure below to replace the backup battery
with a new CR2025 lithium battery.
The date/time/zone setting will also be reset, so be sure to set the
correct date/time/zone (p.40).

Troubleshooting Guide
If a problem occurs with the camera, first refer to this Troubleshooting
Guide. If this Troubleshooting Guide does not resolve the problem,
contact your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center.
Power-Related Problems
The battery pack does not recharge.
Do not recharge any battery pack other than a genuine Canon Battery
Pack LP-E4N or LP-E4.
The battery charger’s <CAL/CHARGE> lamp blinks in red, no
Charge level lamp is lit, or all three Charge level lamps are blinking.
See pages 32 and 33. If you are recharging Battery Pack LP-E4N with
Battery Charger LC-E4 and all three Charge level lamps blink in green,
use the charger to check the battery pack’s recharge performance (p.31).
• If a Charge level lamp lights up, you can keep using the battery pack.
However, if the battery pack’s recharge performance is low, replacing
the battery pack with a new one is recommended.
• If no Charge level lamps light up, the battery pack is faulty. Remove
the battery pack from the charger and consult your dealer or nearest
Canon Service Center.
PY
O
C
The camera does not operate even when the power switch is
set to <1>.
Make sure the battery is properly installed in the camera (p.34).
Make sure the card slot cover is closed (p.35).
Recharge the battery (p.30).
The access lamp still blinks even when the power switch is
set to <2>.
If the power is turned off while an image is being recorded to the card, the
access lamp will remain on/continue to blink for a few seconds. When the
image recording is completed, the power will turn off automatically.
376
Troubleshooting Guide
The battery becomes exhausted quickly.
Use a fully-charged battery pack (p.30).
The battery performance may have degraded. See [53: Battery info.]
to check the battery’s recharge performance level (p.364). If the
battery performance is poor, replace the battery pack with a new one.
The number of possible shots will decrease with any of the following
operations:
• Pressing the shutter button halfway for a prolonged period.
• Often activating only the AF without taking a picture.
• Using the lens’ Image Stabilizer.
• Using the LCD monitor often.
• Continuing Live View shooting or movie shooting for a prolonged
period.
PY
O
C
The camera turns off by itself.
Auto power off is in effect. If you do not want auto power off to take
effect, set [52: Auto power off] to [Disable] (p.57).
Even if [52: Auto power off] is set to [Disable], the LCD monitor will
still turn off after the camera is left idle for 30 min. (The camera’s
power does not turn off.)
Shooting-Related Problems
The lens cannot be attached.
The camera cannot be used with EF-S lenses (p.43).
The viewfinder is dark.
Install a recharged battery pack in the camera (p.34).
377
Troubleshooting Guide
No images can be shot or recorded.
Make sure the card is properly inserted (p.35).
If the card is full, replace the card or delete unnecessary images to
make room (p.35, 284).
If you try to focus in the One-Shot AF mode while the focus
confirmation light <o> in the viewfinder blinks, a picture cannot be
taken. Press the shutter button halfway again to refocus automatically,
or focus manually (p.46, 111).
The card cannot be used.
If a card error message is displayed, see page 37 or 392.
An error message is displayed when the card is inserted in
another camera.
PY
O
C
Cards with capacities greater than 128 GB are formatted in exFAT.
This means that if you format a card with a capacity over 128 GB with
this camera and then insert it into another camera, an error may be
displayed and it may not be possible to use the card.
The image is out of focus.
Set the lens focus mode switch to <AF> (p.43).
To prevent camera shake, press the shutter button gently (p.45, 46).
If the lens has an Image Stabilizer, set the IS switch to <1>.
In low light, the shutter speed may become slow. Use a faster shutter
speed (p.171), set a higher ISO speed (p.128), use flash (p.193), or
use a tripod.
378
Troubleshooting Guide
There are fewer AF points.
Depending on the attached lens, the number of usable AF points and
patterns will differ. The lenses are categorized into eight groups from A
to H. Check which group your lens belongs to. Using a lens in Groups
F to H will have fewer usable AF points (p.76).
The AF points are blinking.
When you press the <S> button, the blinking AF points are those that
are not cross-type AF points and are only horizontal line-sensitive. The
AF points that light up are cross-type AF points (p.71).
The AF point at the registered area is blinking (p.342).
I cannot lock the focus and recompose the shot.
Set the AF mode to One-Shot AF. Note that focus lock will not work in
the AI Servo AF mode (p.67).
PY
O
The continuous shootingC
speed slows down.
At the <o> setting, the maximum continuous speed will be approx.
10 shots/sec. if the ISO speed is set to any of the following:
• ISO 32000 or higher is set manually.
• [Auto ISO range]’s [Maximum] is set to [51200] and Auto ISO
automatically sets ISO 32000 or higher.
• [81: Safety shift] is set to [ISO speed] and the safety shift
automatically sets ISO 32000 or higher.
Note that if the camera’s internal temperature is low, and when ISO
20000 or higher is set manually or automatically, the maximum
continuous shooting speed for <o> will be approx. 10 fps.
Depending on the ISO speed, shutter speed, aperture, subject
conditions, brightness, lens type, etc., the continuous shooting speed
may become slower.
If [Auto AF pt sel.: EOS iTR AF] is set to [Enable] (p.96) and you
shoot under low light, the continuous shooting speed will decrease.
379
Troubleshooting Guide
The maximum burst during continuous shooting is lower.
If you shoot something that has fine detail (such as a field of grass),
the file size will be larger and the actual maximum burst may be lower
than the number mentioned on page 124.
ISO 100 cannot be set/ISO speed expansion cannot be
selected.
If [z2: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], the settable ISO
speed range will be ISO 200 - 51200 (ISO 200 - 25600 for movie shooting).
Even if you expand the settable ISO speed range in [ISO speed range],
you cannot set expanded ISO speeds (L, H, H1, or H2). If [z2: Highlight
tone priority] is set to [Disable], ISO 100/125/160 can be set (p.154).
The Auto Lighting Optimizer cannot be set.
PY
O
C
If [z2: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], the Auto Lighting
Optimizer cannot be set. If [z2: Highlight tone priority] is set to
[Disable], then the Auto Lighting Optimizer can be set (p.154).
Even though I set a decreased exposure compensation, the
image comes out bright.
Set [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] to [Disable]. When [Standard/
Low/High] is set, even if you set a decreased exposure compensation or
flash exposure compensation, the image may come out bright (p.150).
The Live View image or captured image is not displayed
during multiple-exposure shooting.
If [On:ContShtng] is set, Live View display, image review after image
capture, and image playback are not possible during shooting (p.184).
The multiple-exposure image is shot in 1 quality.
When the image size is set to 41 or 61, the multiple-exposure
image will be recorded in 1 quality (p.190).
380
Troubleshooting Guide
When I use the <f> mode with flash, the shutter speed
becomes slow.
If you shoot at night when the background is dark, the shutter speed
becomes slow automatically (slow-sync shooting) so that both the
subject and background are properly exposed. To prevent a slow
shutter speed, under [z3: External Speedlite control], set [Flash
sync. speed in Av mode] to [1/250-1/60 sec. auto] or [1/250 sec.
(fixed)] (p.198).
The flash does not fire.
Make sure the flash (or PC sync cord) is securely attached to the
camera.
If you use a non-Canon flash unit with Live View shooting, set [z4:
Silent LV shoot.] to [Disable] (p.212).
PY
O
If you use a flash unit other

always be fired at full output (p.195).
When the [Flash metering mode] flash Custom Function is set to
[TTL] (autoflash), the flash will always be fired at full output (p.202).
Flash exposure compensation cannot be set.
If flash exposure compensation has already been set with the
Speedlite, flash exposure compensation cannot be set with the
camera. When the Speedlite’s flash exposure compensation is
canceled (set to 0), flash exposure compensation can be set with the
camera.
High-speed sync cannot be set in the <f> mode.
Under [z3: External Speedlite control], set [Flash sync. speed in
Av mode] to [Auto] (p.198).
381
Troubleshooting Guide
The shutter makes two shooting sounds during Live View shooting.
If you use flash, the shutter will make two sounds each time you shoot
(p.206).
During Live View and movie shooting, a white
icon is displayed.
or red E
It indicates that the camera’s internal temperature is high. If the white
< > icon displayed, the still photo’s image quality may deteriorate. If
the red <E> icon is displayed, it indicates that the Live View or movie
shooting will soon stop automatically (p.221, 247).
Movie shooting stops by itself.
If the card’s writing speed is slow, movie shooting may stop
automatically. With IPB compression, use a card with an actual
reading/writing speed of at least 10 MB/sec. With ALL-I (I-only)
compression, the card should have an actual reading/writing speed of
at least 30 MB/sec. To find out the card’s speed, see the card
manufacturer’s Web site (p.223).
If the movie shooting time reaches 29 min. 59 sec., the movie shooting
will stop automatically.
PY
O
C
The ISO speed cannot be set for movie shooting.
If the shooting mode is <d/s/f/BULB>, the ISO speed will be set
automatically. In the <a> mode, you can freely set the ISO speed
(p.230).
For movie shooting, ISO 32000/40000/51200 cannot be set.
Under [z2: ISO speed settings], if [ISO speed range]’s [Maximum]
is set to [51200/H] or higher, the manual setting range’s Maximum will
be expanded to enable ISO 32000/40000/51200 to be set. However,
since movie shooting at ISO 32000/40000/51200 may result in
substantial noise, the expanded ISO speed (“H” displayed) will be
used.
382
Troubleshooting Guide
The manually set ISO speed changes when switching to
movie shooting.
If you shoot a movie when [Maximum: 51200] is set with [ISO speed
range] and ISO speed is set to ISO 32000/40000/51200, the ISO
speed will switch to ISO 25600 (during movie shooting with manual
exposure). Even if you switch back to still photo shooting, the ISO
speed will not revert to the original setting.
If you shoot a movie when L (ISO 50) is set, the ISO speed setting will
switch to ISO 100 (during movie shooting with manual exposure).
Even if you switch back to still photo shooting, the ISO speed will not
revert to the original setting.
The exposure changes during movie shooting.
If you change the shutter speed or aperture during movie shooting, the
changes in the exposure may be recorded.
Zooming the lens during movie shooting can cause changes in the
exposure regardless of whether the lens’ maximum aperture changes
or not. Changes in the exposure may be recorded as a result.
PY
O
C
The subject looks distorted during movie shooting.
If you move the camera to the left or right quickly (high-speed panning)
or shoot a moving subject, the image may look distorted.
The image flickers or horizontal stripes appear during movie
shooting.
Flickering, horizontal stripes (noise), or irregular exposures can be
caused by fluorescent light, LED bulbs, or other light sources during
movie shooting. Also, changes in the exposure (brightness) or color
tone may also be recorded. In the <a> mode, a slow shutter speed
may solve the problem.
383
Troubleshooting Guide
When I shoot still photos during movie shooting, the movie
shooting stops.
To shoot still photos during movie shooting, using a CF card
compatible with UDMA transfer rates is recommended.
Setting a smaller image size for the still photos and shooting fewer
continuous shots may resolve the problem.
The time code is off.
Shooting still photos during movie shooting will cause a discrepancy
between the actual time and time code. When you want to edit a movie using
time code, it is recommended not to shoot still photos during movie shooting.
Operation Problems
PY

C
I cannot change the setting with <6>, <5>, or <9>.
Set the power switch to <1> (p.38).
Check the [85: Multi function lock] setting (p.333).
Vertical-grip controls such as <6> and <9> do not work.
Set the vertical-grip operation switch to <1> (p.49).
The camera button/dial’s function has changed.
Check the [85: Custom Controls] setting (p.337).
Display Problems
The file name’s first character is an underscore (“_”).
Set the color space to sRGB. If Adobe RGB is set, the first character
will be an underscore (p.166).
384
Troubleshooting Guide
The fourth character in the file name changes.
With [51: File name], select the camera’s unique file name or the file
name registered under User setting 1 (p.160).
The file numbering does not start from 0001.
If the card already contains recorded images, the image number may
not start from 0001 (p.162).
The shooting date and time displayed is incorrect.
Make sure the correct date and time has been set (p.40).
Check the time zone and daylight savings time (p.41).
The date and time is not in the picture.
PY
O
C
The shooting date and time does not appear in the picture. The date and
time is instead recorded in the image data as shooting information. When
printing, you can imprint the date and time in the picture by using the date
and time recorded in the shooting information (p.40, 309).
[###] is displayed.
If the card has recorded a number of images greater than the camera
can display, [###] will be displayed (p.261).
In the viewfinder, the AF point display speed is slow.
In low temperatures, the display speed of the AF points may become
slower due to the AF point display device’s (liquid crystal)
characteristics. The display speed will return to normal at room
temperature.
The LCD monitor does not display a clear image.
If the LCD monitor is dirty, use a soft cloth to clean it.
In low or high temperatures, the LCD monitor display may seem slow
or may look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.

Safety Warnings
Follow these safeguards and use the equipment properly to prevent injury, death,
and material damage.
Preventing Serious Injury or Death
• To prevent fire, excessive heat, chemical leakage, and explosions, follow the
safeguards below:
- Do not use any batteries, power sources, and accessories not specified in this
booklet. Do not use any home-made or modified batteries.
- Do not short-circuit, disassemble, or modify the battery pack or back-up battery. Do
not apply heat or apply solder to the battery pack or back-up battery. Do not expose
the battery pack or back-up battery to fire or water. And do not subject the battery
pack or back-up battery to strong physical shock.
- Do not install the battery pack or back-up battery in reversed polarity (+ –). Do not
mix new and old or different types of batteries.
- Do not recharge the battery pack outside the allowable ambient temperature range
of 0°C - 40°C (32°F - 104°F). Also, do not exceed the recharging time.
- Do not insert any foreign metallic objects into the electrical contacts of the camera,
accessories, connecting cables, etc.
• Keep the back-up battery away from children. If a child swallows the battery, consult a
physician immediately. (Battery chemicals may harm the stomach and intestines.)
• When disposing of a battery pack or back-up battery, insulate the electrical contacts
with tape to prevent contact with other metallic objects or batteries. This is to prevent
fire or an explosion.
• If excessive heat, smoke, or fumes are emitted during battery pack recharging,
immediately unplug the battery charger from the power outlet to stop the recharging
and prevent a fire.
• If the battery pack or back-up battery leaks, changes color, deforms, or emits smoke or
fumes, remove it immediately. Be careful not to get burned in the process.
• Prevent any battery leakage from contacting your eyes, skin, and clothing. It can
cause blindness or skin problems. If the battery leakage contacts your eyes, skin, or
clothing, flush the affected area with lots of clean water without rubbing it. See a
physician immediately.
• During the recharging, keep the equipment away from the reach of children. The cord
can accidentally choke the child or give an electrical shock.
• Do not leave any cords near a heat source. It can deform the cord or melt the
insulation and cause a fire or electrical shock.
• Do not fire the flash at someone driving a car. It may cause an accident.
• Do not fire the flash near a person’s eyes. It may impair the person’s vision. When
using flash to photograph an infant, keep at least 1 meter away.
• Before storing the camera or accessory when not in use, remove the battery pack and
disconnect the power plug. This is to prevent electrical shock, heat generation, and
fire.
• Do not use the equipment where there is flammable gas. This is to prevent an
explosion or fire.

• If you drop the equipment and the casing breaks open to expose the internal parts, do
not touch the internal parts due to the possibility of electrical shock.
• Do not disassemble or modify the equipment. High-voltage internal parts can cause
electrical shock.
• Do not look at the sun or an extremely bright light source through the camera or lens.
Doing so may damage your vision.
• Keep the camera from the reach of small children. The neck strap can accidentally
choke the child.
• Do not store the equipment in dusty or humid places. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Before using the camera inside an airplane or hospital, check if it is allowed.
Electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the plane’s
instruments or the hospital’s medical equipment.
• To prevent 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 insulation has been damaged.
• Occasionally unplug the power plug and use a dry cloth to clean off the dust around
the power outlet. If the surrounding is dusty, humid, or oily, the dust on the power outlet
may become moist and short-circuit the outlet to cause a fire.

Preventing Injury or Equipment Damage
• Do not leave equipment inside a car under the hot sun or near a heat source. The
equipment may become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not carry the camera around while it is attached to a tripod. Doing so may cause
injury. Also make sure the tripod is sturdy enough to support the camera and lens.
• Do not leave a lens or lens-attached camera under the sun without the lens cap
attached. Otherwise, the lens may concentrate the sun’s rays and cause a fire.
• Do not cover or wrap the battery-recharging apparatus with a cloth. Doing so may trap
heat within and cause the casing to deform or catch fire.
• If you drop the camera in water or if water or metal fragments enter inside the camera,
promptly remove the battery pack and back-up battery. This is to prevent fire and
electrical shock.
• Do not use or leave the battery pack or back-up battery in a hot environment. Doing so
may cause battery leakage or a shorter battery life. The battery pack or back-up
battery can also become hot and cause skin burns.
• Do not use paint thinner, benzene, or other organic solvents to clean the equipment.
Doing so may cause fire or a health hazard.
If the product does not work properly or requires repair, contact
your dealer or your nearest Canon Service Center.
