Thank you for purchasing a Canon product.
The EOS 500D is a high-performance, digital single-lens reflex camera
featuring fine-detail CMOS sensor with 15.10 effective megapixels,
DIGIC 4, high-precision and high-speed 9-point AF, approx. 3.4 fps
continuous shooting, Live View shooting, and Full HD (Full HighDefinition) movie shooting.
The camera is highly responsive for shooting at anytime, provides many
features for demanding shots, and has many other features.
Take a Few Test Shots to Familiarize Yourself with the
Camera
With a digital camera, you can immediately view the image you have
captured. While reading this manual, take a few test shots and see how
they come out. You can then better understand the camera.
To avoid botched pictures and accidents, read the Safety Warnings
(p.219,220) and Handling Precautions (p.12,13).
Testing the Camera Before Using and Liability
After shooting, playback and check whether the image has been
properly recorded. If the camera or memory card is faulty and the
images cannot be recorded or downloaded to a computer, Canon
cannot be held liable for any loss or inconvenience caused.
Copyrights
Copyright laws in your country may prohibit the use of your recorded
images of people and certain subjects for anything but private
enjoyment. Also be aware that certain public performances, exhibitions,
etc., may prohibit photography even for private enjoyment.
This camera is compatible with SD memory cards and SDHC
memory cards. This manual will refer to all these cards as just “card.”
* The camera does not come with a card for recording images.
Please purchase it separately.

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.
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
13
Handling Precautions
LCD Monitor
Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision
technology with over 99.99% effective pixels, there might 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
might 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
After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the lens
caps or put down the lens with the rear end up to avoid
scratching the lens surface and electrical 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.

level.
Charging the Battery
LC-E5
LC-E5E
25
Charging the Battery
Recharge the battery on the day before or on the day it is to be
used.
Even during non-use or storage, a charged battery will gradually
discharge and lose its power.
After recharging the battery, detach it and unplug the charger
from the power outlet.
When not using the camera, remove the battery.
If the battery is left in the camera for a prolonged period, a small
amount of power current is released, resulting in excess discharge
and shorter battery life. Store the battery with the protective cover
attached.Storing the battery after it is fully charged can lower the
battery’s performance.
The battery charger can also be used in foreign countries.
The battery charger is compatible with a 100 V AC to 240 V AC 50/
60 Hz power source. If necessary, attach a commercially-available
plug adapter for the respective country or region. Do not attach any
portable voltage transformer to the battery charger. Doing so can
damage the battery charger.
If the battery becomes exhausted quickly even after being fully
charged, the battery has worn out.
Purchase a new battery.
Tips for Using the Battery and Charger
Do not charge any battery other than Battery Pack LP-E5.
Battery Pack LP-E5 is dedicated to Canon products only. Using it with an
incompatible battery charger or product may result in malfunction or
accidents for which Canon cannot be held liable.
26

Aim the AF point over an area having good contrast, then press the
shutter button halfway (p.192). If you are too close to the subject,
move away and try again.
Sometimes multiple AF points flash simultaneously.
This indicates that focus has been achieved at all those AF points. As long as
the AF point covering the desired subject flashes, you can take the picture.
The beeper continues to beep softly. (The focus confirmation
light also does not light.)
It indicates that the camera is focusing continuously on a moving
subject. (The focus confirmation light does not light.) While the
beeper is beeping, you can press the shutter button completely to
shoot a moving subject in focus.
Pressing the shutter button halfway does not focus the subject.
When the focus mode switch on the lens is set to (Manual Focus), the
camera does not focus. Set the focus mode switch to (Auto Focus).
Although it is daylight, the flash popped up.
For a backlit subject, the flash may pop up to help reduce harsh
shadows on the subject.
In low light, the built-in flash fired a series of flashes.
To assist the autofocusing, pressing the shutter button halfway may
trigger the built-in flash to fire a series of flashes. This is called AFassist beam. It is effective up to approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet away.
Although flash was used, the picture came out dark.
The subject was too far away. The subject should be within 5
meters/16.4 feet from the camera.
When flash was used, the bottom part of the picture came out
unnaturally dark.
The subject was too close to the camera, and a shadow was created
by the lens. The subject should be at least 1 meter/3.3 feet away
from the camera. If a hood has been attached to the lens, remove it
before taking the flash picture.
FAQ
46
Depending on the scene, position the subject toward the left or right to
create a balanced background and good perspective.
In the <1> (Full Auto) mode, while you press the shutter button
halfway to focus a still subject, the focus will be locked. You can then
recompose the shot and press the shutter button completely to take the
picture. This is called “focus lock”. Focus lock is also possible in other
Basic Zone modes (except <5> Sports).
In the <1> (Full Auto) mode, if the subject moves (distance to camera
changes) during or after you focus, AI Servo AF will take effect to focus
the subject continuously. As long as you keep aiming the AF point at the
subject while pressing the shutter button halfway, the focusing will be
continuous. When you want to take the picture, press the shutter button
completely.

The <2> (Portrait) mode blurs the background to make the human
subject stand out. It also makes flesh tones and the hair look softer than
with the <1> (Full Auto) mode.
The farther the distance between the subject and background,
the better.
The further the distance between the subject and background, the
more blurred the background will look. The subject will also stand
out better in front of a plain, dark background.
Use a telephoto lens.
If you have a zoom lens, use the telephoto end to fill the frame with
the subject from the waist up. Move in closer if necessary.
Focus the face.
Check that the AF point covering the face flashes in red.
2 Shooting Portraits
Shooting Tips
If you hold down the shutter button, you can shoot continuously to obtain
different poses and facial expressions. (max. approx. 3.4 shots/sec.)
If necessary, the built-in flash will pop up automatically.

Use the <3> (Landscape) mode for wide scenery, night scenes, or to
have everything in focus from near to far. The greens and blues also
become more vivid and sharper than with <1> (Full Auto).
With a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end.
When using the wide-angle end of a zoom lens, objects near and far
will be in focus better than at the telephoto end. It also adds breadth
to landscapes.
Shooting night scenes.
Since the built-in flash will be disabled, this
mode is also good for night scenes. Use a
tripod to prevent camera shake. If you
want to photograph a person against a
night scene, set the Mode Dial to <6>
(Night Portrait) and use a tripod (p.51).

When you want to photograph 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).
Use a simple background.
A simple background makes the flower, etc., stand out better.
Move to the subject as close as possible.
Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. Some lenses
have indications such as <40.25m/0.8ft>. The lens minimum
focusing distance is measured from the (focal plane) mark on
the camera to the subject. If you are too close to the subject, the
focus confirmation light will blink.
Under low light, the built-in flash will fire. If you are too close to the
subject and the bottom of the picture looks dark, move away from
the subject.
With a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.
If you have a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the

E: Changing the AF ModeN
This AF mode is for moving subjects when the focusing distance
keeps changing. While you hold down the shutter button halfway,
the subject will be focused continuously.
The exposure is set at the moment the picture is taken.
When the AF point selection (p.66) is automatic, the camera first
uses the center AF point to focus. During autofocusing, if the subject
moves away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as
long as the subject is covered by another AF point.
AI Focus AF switches the AF mode from One-Shot AF to AI Servo
AF automatically if the still subject starts moving.
After the subject is focused in the One-Shot AF mode, if the subject
starts moving, the camera will detect the movement and change the
AF mode automatically to AI Servo AF.

3 Setting the Image-recording Quality
I want to select the quality matching the paper size for printing.
Refer to the diagram on the left when
choosing the image-recording quality. If
you want to crop the image, selecting a
higher quality (more pixels) such as 73,
83, 1, or 1+73 is recommended.
What’s the difference between 7 and 8?
It indicates a different image quality due to a different compression
rate. Even with the same number of pixels, the 7 image has higher
image quality. If 8 is selected, the image quality will be slightly lower,
but more images can be saved to the card.
I took more shots than the number of possible shots indicated.
Depending on the shooting conditions, you may be able to take
more shots than was indicated. Or, it might be fewer than indicated.
The possible shots displayed is only an estimate.
Does the camera display the maximum burst?
The maximum burst is displayed in the viewfinder’s right side. Since
it is only a single-digit indicator 0 - 9, any number higher than 9 will
be displayed only as “9.” Note that this number will also be displayed
even when no card is installed in the camera. Be careful not to shoot
without a card in the camera.
When do I use the 1 mode?
1 images require processing with your computer. For details, see
“About 1” and “About 1+73” on the next page.
Other than 1, the images will be in the JPEG type commonly used
in digital cameras.

button to take the picture. If you use a telephoto lens, hold it steady
to prevent camera shake.
How to blur a flowing river or water fountain.
Use a slow shutter speed of 1/15 sec. or slower. Use a tripod to
prevent camera shake.
Set the shutter speed so that the aperture display does not
blink in the viewfinder.
If you press the shutter button halfway and change the
shutter speed while the aperture is displayed, the aperture
display will also change to maintain the same exposure
(amount of light reaching the image sensor). If you exceed
the adjustable aperture range, the aperture display will blink
to indicate that the standard exposure cannot be obtained.
If the exposure will be too dark, the lowest aperture will blink. If this
happens, turn the <6> dial to the left to set a slower shutter speed
or increase the ISO speed.
If the exposure will be too bright, the highest aperture will blink. If
this happens, turn the <6> dial to the right to set a faster shutter
speed or decrease the ISO speed.
To obtain a correct flash exposure, the flash output will be set
automatically (autoflash exposure) to match the automatically-set
aperture. The flash sync speed can be set from 1/200 sec. to 30 sec.

the camera, “00” will be displayed for the aperture.
79
f: Changing the Depth of Field
When using a high aperture, note that camera shake can occur
in low light scenes.
A higher aperture will make the shutter speed slower. Under low
light, the shutter speed can be as long as 30 sec. In such cases,
increase the ISO speed and hold the camera steady or use a tripod.
The depth of field depends not only on the aperture, but also
the lens and subject distance.
Since wide-angle lenses have a wide depth of field (range of
acceptable focus in front of and behind the point of focus), you need
not set a high aperture to obtain a sharp picture from the foreground
to the background. On the other hand, a telephoto lens has a narrow
depth of field.
And the closer the subject, the narrower the depth of field. A farther
subject will have a wider depth of field.
Set the aperture so that the shutter speed display does not
blink in the viewfinder.
If you press the shutter button halfway and change
the aperture while the shutter speed is displayed,
the shutter speed display will also change to
maintain the same exposure (amount of light
reaching the image sensor). If you exceed the
adjustable shutter speed range, the shutter speed
display will blink to indicate that the standard
exposure cannot be obtained.
If the picture will be too dark, the “30"” (30 sec.) shutter speed
display will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial to the left to set
a lower aperture or increase the ISO speed.
If the picture will be too bright, the “4000” (1/4000 sec.) shutter
speed display will blink. If this happens, turn the <6> dial to the
right to set a higher aperture or decrease the ISO speed.

To obtain a correct flash exposure, the flash output will be set
automatically to match the set aperture (autoflash exposure). The
shutter speed will be set automatically between 1/200 sec. - 30 sec. to
suit the scene’s brightness.
In low light, the main subject is exposed with the automatic flash, and
the background is exposed with a slow shutter speed set automatically.
Both the subject and background look properly exposed (automatic
slow-speed flash sync). If you are handholding the camera, keep it

PDF Software Instruction Manual (on the CD-ROM) for EOS Utility.
About the Lens Correction Data
Lens peripheral light correction cannot be applied to JPEG images
already captured.
Depending on shooting conditions, noise might appear on the image
periphery.
When using a third-party lens, setting the correction to [Disable] is
recommended, even if [Correction data available] is displayed.
Lens peripheral light correction is applied even when an Extender is
attached.
If the correction data for the attached lens has not been registered to the
camera, the result will be the same as when the correction is set to
[Disable].
The correction amount applied will be slightly lower than the maximum
correction amount settable with Digital Photo Professional (provided
software).
If the lens does not have distance information, the correction amount will
be lower.
The higher the ISO speed, the lower the correction amount will be.

Notes About the Live View Image
Under low or bright light conditions, the Live View image might not reflect
the brightness of the captured image.
If the light source within the image changes, the screen might flicker. If
this happens, stop and resume the Live View shooting under the actual
light source to be used.
If you point the camera in a different direction, it might 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, such as the sun, the
bright area might appear black on the LCD monitor. However, the actual
captured image will correctly show the bright area.
In low light, if you set the [6 LCD brightness] to a bright setting,
chrominance noise may appear in the Live View image. However, the
chrominance noise will not be recorded in the captured image.
When you magnify the image, the image sharpness may look more
pronounced than it really is.
About the icon
If Live View shooting is used under direct sunlight or in other hot
environments, the icon (warning for the camera’s high internal
temperature) may appear on the screen. If Live View shooting continues
with a high internal temperature, it may degrade image quality. You
should therefore stop Live View shooting if the warning icon appears.
If Live View shooting continues while the warning icon is displayed
and the camera’s internal temperature increases, the Live View shooting
will stop automatically. Live View shooting will be disabled until the
camera’s internal temperature decreases.
120
Notes About the Shooting Results
When you shoot continuously with the Live View function for a long
period, the camera’s internal temperature may increase and it can
degrade image quality. Terminate Live View shooting when not shooting
images.
Before taking a long exposure, stop Live View shooting temporarily and
wait several minutes before shooting. This is to prevent image
degradation.
Live View shooting in high temperatures and at high ISO speeds may
cause noise or irregular colors.
When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (horizontal banding, light
dots, etc.) may appear.
If you take the picture during magnified view, the exposure might not
come out as desired. Return to the normal view before taking the picture.
During the magnified view, the shutter speed and aperture will be
displayed in red. Even if you take the picture during magnified view, the
captured image will show the normal view.
Custom Function Notes
During Live View shooting, certain Custom Function settings will be
disabled (p.183).
If the [7 Custom Functions (C.Fn)] menu’s [Auto Lighting Optimizer]
(p.186) is set to a setting other than [3: Disable], the image may look
bright even if a decreased exposure compensation or flash exposure
compensation has been set.
Notes About Lenses and Flash
The focus preset feature on super telephoto lenses cannot be used.
FE lock is not possible when the built-in flash or an external Speedlite is
used. Modeling flash and test flash will not fire if an external Speedlite is
used.

Notes on Movie Shooting
Recording and Image Quality
At [1920x1080], the recorded frame rate is slower, so fast-moving
subjects or scenes may look a little jerky.
If a single movie’s file size reaches 4 GB, the movie shooting will stop
automatically. To start movie shooting again, press the
button. (A
new movie file starts being recorded.)
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 may cause the total movie shooting time or the
number of possible shots to decrease. 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
sounds. If you do not want to record any sound, set the sound recording
to [Off].
Autofocusing during movie shooting is not recommended since it might
momentarily throw the focus way off or change the exposure. Even if the
AF mode has been set to [Quick mode], it will switch to the Live mode
during movie shooting.
If the movie shooting is not possible due to the insufficient remaining
capacity of the card, the movie recording size and movie shooting
remaining time (p.126) will be displayed in red.
If you use a card having a slow writing speed, the five-level
indicator might appear on the right of the screen during
movie shooting. It indicates how much data has not yet been
written to the card (remaining capacity of the internal buffer
memory). The slower the card, the faster the indicator will
climb upward. If the indicator becomes full, movie shooting
will stop automatically.
If the card has a fast writing speed, the indicator will either
not appear or the level (if displayed) will hardly go upward.
First, shoot a few test movies to see if the card can write fast enough.
If you take still photos during the movie shooting, the movie shooting
might stop. If the still image recording quality has been set low, it might
be improved.
During movie shooting mode, certain Custom Function settings will be
disabled (p.183).

Notes on Movie Shooting
Camera’s internal temperature increase and image degradation
If you continue to shoot movies for a prolonged period, the camera’s
internal temperature will increase. This can degrade the image quality.
While not shooting, turn off the power.
If you shoot under direct sunlight or high-temperature conditions, the
icon (high internal temperature warning) may appear on the
screen. If you keep shooting a movie with the warning icon displayed, the
image quality might degrade. You should turn off the power and allow the
camera to rest for a while.
If the icon is displayed and you keep shooting movies until the
camera’s internal temperature increases further, the movie shooting will
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.
Playback and TV connection
If the brightness changes during movie shooting, that part might freeze
momentarily.
If you connect the camera to a TV set with an HDMI cable (p.157) and
shoot a movie in [1920x1080] or [1280x720], the movie being shot will
be displayed at a small size on the TV. However, the actual movie will be
properly recorded at the movie recording size that was set.
If you connect the camera to a TV set (p.156-157) and shoot a movie,
the TV will not output any sound during the shooting. However, the
sound will be properly recorded.

With an external Speedlite, you can select the flash mode to suit
your flash shooting.
[E-TTL II] is the standard mode for
EX-series Speedlites for automatic
flash shooting.
[Manual flash] enables you to set the

Normally, set this to [1st curtain] so that the flash fires immediately
after the exposure starts.
If [2nd curtain] is set, the flash will fire right before the exposure
ends. When this is combined with a slow sync speed, you can create
a trail of light such as from car headlights at night. With 2nd curtain
sync, two flashes will be fired, once when you press the shutter
button completely, and once immediately before the exposure ends.
If an external Speedlite is attached, you can also set [Hi-speed]. For

Normally, the Self Cleaning Sensor Unit will eliminate most of the dust
that might be visible on captured images. However, in case visible dust
still remains, you can append the Dust Delete Data to the image to later
erase the dust spots. The Dust Delete Data is used by Digital Photo
Professional (provided software) to erase the dust spots automatically.
Get a solid-white object (paper, etc.).
Set the lens focal length to 50mm or longer.
Set the lens focus mode switch to 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.

3 Photograph a solid-white object.
At a distance of 20 cm - 30 cm / 0.7 ft. - 1.0
ft., fill the viewfinder with a patternless,
solid-white object and take a picture.
The picture will be taken in the aperturepriority AE mode with an aperture of f/22.
Since the image will not be saved, the
data can still be obtained even if there
is no card in the camera.
When the picture is taken, the camera
will start obtaining the Dust Delete
Data. When the Dust Delete Data is
obtained, a message will appear.
Select [OK], and the menu will
reappear.
If the data was not obtained
successfully, a message to that effect
will appear. Follow the “Preparation”
procedure on the preceding page, then
select [OK]. Take the picture again.
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.
To erase dust spots automatically with the provided software, see the
PDF Software Instruction Manual on the CD-ROM.
The Dust Delete Data appended to the image is so small that it hardly
affects the image file size.
About the Dust Delete Data
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.
145
Dust which could not be removed by the automatic sensor cleaning can
be removed manually with a blower, etc.
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.

As power source, using the AC Adapter Kit ACK-E5 (sold separately) is
recommended.
If you use the battery, make sure it is fully recharged. If a battery grip with
size-AA/LR6 batteries is attached, manual sensor cleaning will not be
possible.

While cleaning the sensor, never do any of the following. If the
power is cut off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains and
image sensor might get damaged.
• Setting the power switch to <2>.
• Opening the battery compartment cover.
• Opening the card slot cover.
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 turned off, the shutter will close and the shutter curtains or
reflex mirror might 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.

About the Histogram
The brightness histogram display shows the exposure level
distribution and overall brightness. The RGB histogram display is for
checking the color saturation and gradation. The display can be
switched with the [4 Histogram] menu.
[Brightness] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the
distribution of the image’s brightness level. The
horizontal axis indicates the brightness level
(darker on the left and brighter on the right),
while the vertical axis indicates how many
pixels exist for each brightness level. The more
pixels there are toward the left, the darker the
image. And the more pixels there are toward the
right, the brighter the image. If there are too
many pixels on the left, the shadow detail will be
lost. And if there are too many pixels on the
right, the highlight detail will be lost. The
gradation in-between will be reproduced. By checking the image and
its brightness histogram, you can see the exposure level inclination
and the overall tone reproduction.
[RGB] Display
This histogram is a graph showing the distribution of each primary
color’s brightness level in the image (RGB or red, green, and blue).
The horizontal axis indicates the color’s brightness level (darker on
the left and brighter on the right), while the vertical axis indicates how
many pixels exist for each color brightness level. The more pixels
there are toward the left, the darker and less prominent the color.
And the more pixels there are toward the right, the brighter and
denser the color. If there are too many pixels on the left, the
respective color information will be lacking. And if there are too many
pixels on the right, the color will be too saturated with no detail. By
checking the image’s RGB histogram, you can see the color’s
saturation and gradation condition and white balance inclination.

C.Fn-3 Flash sync. speed in Av (Aperture-priority AE) mode
0: Auto
The flash sync speed is set automatically within a range of 1/200 sec. to
30 sec. to suit the scene’s brightness.
1: 1/200-1/60 sec. auto
When flash is used with aperture-priority AE (f), this prevents a slow
flash-sync speed from being set automatically in low-light conditions.
It is effective for preventing subject blur and camera shake. However,
while the subject will be properly exposed with the flash, the background
will come out dark.
2: 1/200 sec. (fixed)
The flash-sync speed is fixed to 1/200 sec. This more effectively
prevents subject blur and camera shake than with setting 1. However,

Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the focus confirmation light
blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:
Subjects difficult to focus
Low-contrast subjects
(Example: Blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.)
Subjects in low light
Extremely backlit or reflective subjects
(Example: Car with a 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 one of the following:
(1) With One-Shot AF, focus an object at the same distance as the
subject and lock the focus before recomposing (p.46).
(2) Set the lens focus mode switch to and focus manually.
When Autofocus Fails
If an Extender (sold separately) is attached and the maximum aperture of
the lens is f/5.6 or smaller (larger f/number), AF will not be possible
(except Live mode/u Live mode AF). For details, see the Extender’s
instruction manual.
For the situations where AF can fail to achieve focus with Live mode/u
Live mode AF, see page 115.
193

Remote Control Shooting
If you take a picture without looking at the viewfinder, light entering the
eyepiece can throw off the exposure. To prevent this, use the eyepiece
cover (p.23) attached to the camera strap.
During Live View shooting and movie shooting, attaching the
eyepiece cover is unnecessary.
1 Remove the eyecup.
Push the bottom of the eyecup
upward.
2 Attaching the eyepiece cover.
Slide the eyepiece cover down into
the eyepiece groove to attach it.

Basically operates like a built-in flash for easy operation.
When an EX-series Speedlite (sold separately) is attached to the
camera, almost all the autoflash control is done by the camera. In other
words, it is like a high-output flash attached externally in place of the
built-in flash.
For detailed instructions, see the EX-series Speedlite’s instruction
manual. This camera is a Type-A camera that can use all the features
of EX-series Speedlites.
External Speedlites
EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlites
Shoe-mount Speedlites Macro Lites
With an EX-series Speedlite not controllable by the camera, only [Flash
exp. comp] and [E-TTL II] can be settable for [External flash func.
setting] (p.139).
(Certain EX-series Speedlites also enable [Shutter sync.] to be set.)
If flash exposure compensation is set with the external Speedlite, the
flash exposure compensation icon displayed on the camera’s LCD
monitor will change from y to C.
When the flash metering mode is set to TTL autoflash with the flash’s
Custom Function, the flash will fire at full output only.
197
External Speedlites
With an EZ/E/EG/ML/TL-series Speedlite set in TTL or A-TTL
autoflash mode, the flash can be fired at full output only.
Set the camera’s shooting mode to
(manual exposure) or
(aperture-priority AE) and adjust the aperture setting before
shooting.
When using a Speedlite which has manual flash mode, shoot in the
manual flash mode.
Sync Speed
The camera can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash units at 1/
200 sec. or slower. Be sure to test the flash unit beforehand to make
sure it synchronizes properly with the camera.
Cautions for Live View shooting
A non-Canon flash will not fire during Live View shooting.
Canon Speedlites other than the EX-series
Using Non-Canon Flash Units
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 attach a high-voltage flash unit on the camera’s hot shoe. It might
not fire.

Troubleshooting Guide
Set the [7 Custom Functions (C.Fn)] menu’s [High ISO speed
noise reduction] to [Standard], [Low], or [Disable]. If it is set to
[Strong], the maximum burst during continuous shooting will decrease
(p.185).
If you shoot a subject which has fine detail (field of grass, etc.), the file
size will be larger and the actual maximum burst will be lower than the
number mentioned on page 70.
Under the [7 Custom Functions (C.Fn)] menu, if [Highlight tone
priority] is set to [Enable], ISO 100 cannot be set. When [Disable] is
set, ISO 100 can be set (p.186).
If you shoot night scenes, the shutter speed becomes slow
automatically (slow-sync shooting) so that both the subject and
background are properly exposed. If you do not want a slow shutter
speed to be set, set the [7 Custom Functions (C.Fn)] menu’s [Flash
sync. speed in Av mode] to 1 or 2 (p.184).
If you shoot continuously with the built-in flash at short intervals, the
flash might stop operating to protect the flash unit.

If the movie file size reaches 4 GB or if the movie recording time
reaches 29 min. 59 sec., movie shooting will stop automatically.
When shooting movies at 1920x1080 with this camera, only 20 frames
are recorded per second (20 fps). Therefore, if there is fast movement
in the movie scene, the picture might look distorted. This distortion will
be resolved if you shoot at the 1280x720 recording size (p.123).
If you operate the camera’s dial or lens during movie shooting, the
respective operation noise will also be recorded (p.127).
The camera makes a noise when it is shaken.
The shutter makes two shooting sounds during Live View
shooting.
The movie shooting terminates by itself.
The 1920x1080 movie looks distorted.
When the movie is played, camera operation noise can be
heard.

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.
220
• 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.
