    • C.Fn-06-2 enables the AEB amount to be set in 1/2-stop increments with the shutter speed or aperture. (→p.134) Also, C.Fn-05-1 enables a manual exposure to be set with a fixed shutter speed and varying aperture. (→p.134) • C.Fn-09-2/3 changes the bracketing sequence to decreased exposure, standard exposure, and increased exposure.

  • Page 98: Ae Lock

    AE Lock AE lock enables you to lock the exposure at a different place from the point of focus. After locking the exposure, you can recompose the shot while maintaining the desired exposure level. This feature is useful for backlit and spotlighted subjects. AE lock indicator If One-Shot AF and evaluative metering are set, pressing the shutter button halfway to focus will automatically set AE lock at the same time.

  • Page 99: Drive Mode Selection

    • The continuous shooting speeds and maximum shots per burst in the above table are based on Canon's testing standards (1/250 sec. or faster shutter speed, at ISO 100). • The maximum shots per burst depends on the subject, shooting mode, and ISO speed.

  • Page 100: Self-timer Operation

    Drive Modes Selection/ Self-timer Operation • When you take a picture, the image is first stored in the camera’s internal memory and then transferred to the CF card. When the internal memory becomes full during continuous shooting, the camera cannot continue to take more pictures until the images are transferred to the CF card and the internal memory gain some space.

  • Page 101: Using The Eyepiece Shutter

    Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to start the self-timer. Doing so will throw off the focus. When using the self-timer to photograph yourself only, first lock the focus (→p.61) on an object at about the same distance where you will be. The 2-second delay is effective for close-ups or photo duplicating work to prevent camera shake (camera movement while the shutter button is pressed).

    Basic Terminology Abbreviation for auto exposure. It is an automatic metering and exposure system that sets the optimum exposure (shutter speed and/or aperture) based on the reading by the built-in exposure meter. Abbreviation for auto focus. It enables the camera to focus the subject automatically. CF (CompactFlash) card CF card is the small, card-shaped storage media used to record images taken by the EOS- 1Ds.

  • Page 155: Shutter Speed

    Basic Terminology Aperture The aperture value (f/number) indicates the size of the aperture opening in the lens. It is equal to the focal length devided by the aperture diameter. It adjusts the amount of light striking the CMOS sensor. The aperture value is displayed on the camera’s top LCD panel and in the viewfinder.

  • Page 156: Depth Of Field

    Basic Terminology Depth of field This is the range where acceptable focus can be achieved in front of and behind the point of the subject. The smaller the aperture (the higher the f/number), the deeper the depth of field. And the larger the aperture (the lower the f/number), the shallower the depth of field. The depth of field is affected as described below: (1) A smaller aperture (a higher f/number) increases the depth of field.
