Basic Shooting This chapter explains how to use the Basic Zone modes on the Mode Dial for best results. With Basic Zone modes, all you do is point and shoot while the camera sets everything automatically (p.83, 342). Also, to prevent botched pictures due to mistaken operations, the main shooting function settings cannot be changed.
A Fully Automatic Shooting (Scene Intelligent Auto) <A> is a fully automatic mode. The camera analyzes the scene and sets the optimum settings automatically. It also adjusts focus automatically by detecting whether the subject is still or moving (p.69). Set the Mode Dial to <A>. Turn the Mode Dial while holding down the lock release button at the center.
A Fully Automatic Shooting (Scene Intelligent Auto) Take the picture. Press the shutter button completely to take the picture. The captured image will be displayed for 2 sec. on the LCD monitor. The <A> mode makes the colors look more impressive in nature, outdoor, and sunset scenes.
The shutter speed display is blinking. Since it is too dark, taking the picture may result in a blurred subject due to camera shake. Using a tripod or a Canon EX-series Speedlite (p.170) (sold separately) is recommended. When the external flash was used, the bottom part of the picture came out unnaturally dark.
A Full Auto Techniques (Scene Intelligent Auto) Recomposing the Shot Depending on the scene, position the subject toward the left or right to create a balanced background and good perspective. In the <A> mode, while you press the shutter button halfway to focus a still subject, the focus will be locked.

2 Shooting Portraits The <2> (Portrait) mode blurs the background to make the human subject stand out. It also makes skin tones and the hair look softer. Shooting Tips The further 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.
3 Shooting Landscapes Use the <3> (Landscape) mode for wide scenery or to have everything in focus from near to far. For vivid blues and greens, and very sharp and crisp images. Shooting Tips 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.
4 Shooting Close-ups 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). Shooting Tips Use a simple background. A simple background makes the flower, etc., stand out better. Move as close as possible to the subject.
5 Shooting Moving Subjects To photograph a moving subject, whether it is a child running or a moving vehicle, use the <5> (Sports) mode. Shooting Tips Use a telephoto lens. Using a telephoto lens is recommended so you can shoot from afar. Use the center AF point to focus.
6 Shooting Night Portraits (With a Tripod) To shoot people at night and obtain a natural-looking night scene in the background, use the <6> (Night Portrait) mode. Flash is required. Using a tripod is also recommended. Shooting Tips Use a wide-angle lens, Speedlite, and a tripod. When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to obtain a wide night view.
F Shooting Night Scenes (Handheld) Normally, a tripod is necessary to steady your camera when shooting a night scene. However, with the <F> (Handheld Night Scene) mode, you can shoot night scenes while handholding the camera. In this mode, four shots are taken continuously for each picture, and a resulting bright image with reduced camera shake is recorded.
G Shooting Backlit Scenes When shooting a scene having both bright and dark areas, use the <G> (HDR Backlight Control) mode. When you take a picture, three continuous shots are taken at different exposures, and the resulting image with the least loss of shadow detail due to backlighting and widest tonal range is recorded.
Cautions for <F> (Handheld Night Scene) During Live View shooting, it may be difficult to focus dots of light such as in a night scene. In such a case, you should set the AF method to [Quick mode] and shoot. If it is still difficult to focus, set the lens’ focus mode switch to [MF] and focus manually.

Setting the White BalanceN White balance (WB) is for making the white areas look white. Normally, the <Q> (Auto) setting will obtain the correct white balance. If natural- looking colors cannot be obtained with <Q>, you can select the white balance to match the light source or set it manually by shooting a white object.
3 Setting the White BalanceN 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. Photograph a white object. The plain, white object should fill the spot metering circle.
3 Setting the White BalanceN If the exposure obtained in step 1 differs greatly from the standard exposure, a correct white balance may not be obtained. In step 3, the following images cannot be selected: images captured while the Picture Style was set to [Monochrome], multiple-exposure images, and images shot with another camera.
White Balance CorrectionN You can correct the white balance that has been set. This adjustment will have the same effect as using a commercially-available color temperature conversion filter or color compensating filter. Each color can be corrected to one of nine levels. This function is for advanced users who are familiar with using color temperature conversion or color compensating filters.
3 White Balance CorrectionN White Balance Auto Bracketing With just one shot, three images having a different color tone 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.
Auto Correction of Brightness and ContrastN If the image comes out dark or the contrast is low, the brightness and contrast can be corrected automatically. This function is called Auto Lighting Optimizer. The default setting is [Standard]. With JPEG images, the correction is applied when the image is captured. In Basic Zone modes, [Standard] is set automatically.
Noise Reduction SettingsN High ISO Speed Noise Reduction This function reduces the noise generated in the image. Although noise reduction is applied at all ISO speeds, it is particularly effective at high ISO speeds. At low ISO speeds, the noise in the darker parts of the image (shadow areas) is further reduced.
3 Noise Reduction SettingsN About [Multi Shot Noise Reduction] The following functions cannot be set: AEB, WB bracketing, [z4: Long exp. noise reduction], [z4: HDR Mode], [z4: Multiple exposure], and RAW image. If any of these has already been set, [Multi Shot Noise Reduction] cannot be set.

Advanced Operations In Creative Zone modes, you can set the shutter speed and/or aperture to set the exposure as desired. By changing the camera settings, you can obtain various results. The M icon at the upper right of the page title indicates that the function is available only in Creative Zone modes (d/ s/f/a/F).
d: Program AE The camera automatically sets the shutter speed and aperture to suit the subject’s brightness. This is called Program AE. * <d> stands for Program. * AE stands for Auto Exposure. Set the Mode Dial to <d>. Focus the subject. Look through the viewfinder and aim the selected AF point over the subject.
d: Program AE If the “30"” shutter speed and the lower f/number blink, it indicates underexposure. Increase the ISO speed or use flash. If the “4000” shutter speed and the higher f/number blink, it indicates overexposure. Lower the ISO speed or use an ND filter (sold separately) to reduce the amount of light entering the lens.
s: Shutter-Priority AE In this mode, you set the shutter speed and the camera automatically sets the aperture to obtain the standard exposure suiting the brightness of the subject. This is called shutter-priority AE. A faster shutter speed can freeze the action or a moving subject. A slower shutter speed can create a blurred effect, giving the impression of motion.
s: Shutter-Priority AE If the lower f/number blinks, it indicates underexposure. Turn the <6> dial to set a slower shutter speed until the aperture stops blinking or set a higher ISO speed. If the higher f/number blinks, it indicates overexposure. Turn the <6>...
f: Aperture-Priority AE In this mode, you set the desired aperture and the camera sets the shutter speed automatically to obtain the standard exposure suiting the subject brightness. This is called aperture-priority AE. A higher f/number (smaller aperture hole) will make more of the foreground and background fall within acceptable focus.
f: Aperture-Priority AE If the “30"” shutter speed blinks, it indicates underexposure. Turn the <6> dial to set a larger aperture (lower f/ number) until the shutter speed blinking stops or set a higher ISO speed. If the “4000” shutter speed blinks, it indicates overexposure.
a: Manual Exposure In this mode, you set both the shutter speed and aperture as desired. To determine the exposure, refer to the exposure level indicator in the viewfinder or use a commercially-available exposure meter. This method is called manual exposure. * <a>...

Setting Exposure Compensation N Exposure compensation can brighten (increased exposure) or darken (decreased exposure) the standard exposure set by the camera. Exposure compensation can be set in the d/s/f shooting modes. Although you can set the exposure compensation up to ±5 stops in 1/3- stop increments, the exposure compensation indicator in the viewfinder and on the LCD panel can only display the setting up to ±3 stops.
h Auto Exposure Bracketing (AEB)N By changing the shutter speed or aperture automatically, the camera brackets the exposure up to ±3 stops in 1/3-stop increments for three successive shots. This is called AEB. * AEB stands for Auto Exposure Bracketing. Select [Expo.comp./AEB].
A AE LockN Use AE lock when the area of focus is to be different from the exposure metering area or when you want to take multiple shots at the same exposure setting. Press the <A> button to lock the exposure, then recompose and take the shot.
F: Bulb Exposures When bulb is set, the shutter stays open as long as you hold down the shutter button completely, and closes when you let go of the shutter button. This is called bulb exposure. Use bulb exposures for night scenes, fireworks, astronomical objects, and other subjects requiring long exposures.
w: HDR (High Dynamic Range) ShootingN You can shoot images preserving a wide tonal range where the highlight and shadow detail would otherwise be lost. HDR shooting is effective for landscape and still-life shots. With HDR shooting, three images of different exposures (standard exposure, underexposure, and overexposure) are captured for each shot and then merged together automatically.
w: HDR (High Dynamic Range) ShootingN Set [Continuous HDR]. Select either [1 shot only] or [Every shot], then press <0>. With [1 shot only], HDR shooting will be canceled automatically after the shooting ends. With [Every shot], HDR shooting continues until the setting in step 2 is set to [Disable HDR].

Detach and reattach the battery pack to the charger. Wait a few minutes, then reconnect the power plug to the power outlet. If the problem persists, contact your dealer or nearest Canon Service Center. The charger’s lamp does not blink.
Troubleshooting Guide 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.
Troubleshooting Guide Shooting-Related Problems The lens cannot be attached. The camera cannot be used with EF-S and EF-M lenses (p.39). No images can be shot or recorded. Make sure the card is properly inserted (p.31). Slide the card’s write-protect switch to the write/erase position (p.31).
Troubleshooting Guide The image is out of focus. Set the lens focus mode switch to <AF> (p.39). To prevent camera shake, press the shutter button gently (p.43, 44). If the lens has an Image Stabilizer, set the IS switch to <1> (p.42).
Troubleshooting Guide ISO 100 cannot be set. ISO speed expansion cannot be selected. If [z4: Highlight tone priority] is set to [Enable], the settable ISO speed range will be ISO 200-25600 (or up to ISO 12800 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, H2).
Troubleshooting Guide The flash does not fire. If you use a non-Canon flash unit with Live View shooting, set [A2: Silent LV shoot.] to [Disable] (p.190). The flash always fires at full output. If you use a flash unit other than an EX-series Speedlite, the flash will always be fired at full output (p.171).
Troubleshooting Guide I cannot shoot a movie. Under the  tab, if you set [Wi-Fi] to [Enable], you cannot shoot movies. Before shooting movies, set [Wi-Fi] to [Disable]. Movie shooting stops by itself. If the card’s writing speed is slow, movie shooting may stop automatically.
Troubleshooting Guide The manually set ISO speed changes when switching to movie shooting. If you shoot a movie when [Maximum: 25600] is set with [ISO speed range] and ISO speed is set to ISO 16000/20000/25600, the ISO speed will switch to ISO 12800 (during movie shooting with manual exposure).
Troubleshooting Guide When I shoot still photos during movie shooting, the movie shooting stops. Setting a lower image quality for still photos and shooting fewer continuous still photos may resolve the problem. Time code is off. Shooting still photos during movie shooting will cause a discrepancy between the actual time and time code.
Troubleshooting Guide Display Problems The menu screen shows few tabs and options. In Basic Zone modes, certain tabs and menu options are not displayed. Set a Creative Zone mode (p.51). 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.140).
Troubleshooting Guide 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.
Troubleshooting Guide When the movie is played back, camera operation noise can be heard. If you operate the camera’s dials or lens during movie shooting, the operation noise will also be recorded. Using an external microphone (commercially available) is recommended (p.219). The movie has still moments.
Troubleshooting Guide I cannot resize the image. c JPEG images and 1/41/61 images cannot be resized with the camera (p.277). Sensor Cleaning Problems The shutter makes a noise during sensor cleaning. If you selected [Clean nowf], the shutter will make a noise, but no picture is taken (p.280).
Troubleshooting Guide Image Transfer Problems I cannot transfer images to a computer. Install the provided software (EOS DIGITAL Solution Disk CD- ROM) on the computer (p.392). Under the  tab, if [Wi-Fi] is set to [Enable], the camera cannot connect to a computer. Set [Wi-Fi] to [Disable], then connect the camera to the computer with an interface cable.
Error Message and Solution Communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts. Clean the electrical contacts on the camera and lens or use a Canon lens (p.17, 20). Card cannot be accessed. Reinsert/change card or format card with camera.
