  • Page 188: Correction Of Lens Peripheral Illumination And Aberrations

    Correction of Lens Peripheral Illumination and Aberration Peripheral light fall-off is a phenomenon that makes the image corners look darker due to the lens characteristics. Color fringing along subject outlines is called chromatic aberration. This lens aberration and light fall-off can be corrected. By default, Peripheral illumination and Chromatic aberration correction are set to [Enable].

  • Page 190 Peripheral illumination correction and chromatic aberration correction cannot be applied to JPEG images already taken. When using a non-Canon lens, setting the corrections to [Disable] is recommended, even if [Correction data available] is displayed. If you use magnified view during Live View shooting, the peripheral illumination correction and chromatic aberration correction will not be reflected in the image shown on the screen.
  • Page 191: Reducing Flicker

    Reducing FlickerN If you shoot an image with a fast shutter speed under a light source such as fluorescent light, the blinking of the light source causes flicker and the image may be vertically unevenly exposed. If continuous shooting is used under these conditions, uneven exposures or colors across the images may result.
  • Page 192 3 Reducing FlickerN If the subject is against a dark background or if there is a bright light in the image, flicker may not be detected. Under certain special types of lighting, the camera may not be able to reduce the effects of the flicker even when <G> is displayed. Depending on the light source, flicker may not be detected properly.
  • Page 193: Setting The Color Space

    Setting the Color SpaceN The range of reproducible colors is called “color space”. With this camera, you can set the color space for captured images to sRGB or Adobe RGB. For normal shooting, sRGB is recommended. The color space is set automatically to [sRGB] in the <A> mode. Select [Color space].
