Shooting Tips Use the center AF point to focus. Aim the center AF point in the viewfinder over the subject, then shoot. Prevent camera shake if the shutter speed in the viewfinder blinks.
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. Using a tripod is recommended. Shooting Tips Use a wide-angle lens and a tripod. When using a zoom lens, use the wide-angle end to obtain a wide night view.
F Shooting Night Scenes (Handheld) Using a tripod when shooting a night scene gives the best results.

Press the <g> button Set the ISO speed. While looking in the viewfinder or at the LCD monitor, press the <Y>...
g: Changing the ISO Speed to Suit the LightK When you shoot at high ISO speeds, noise (such as dots of light and banding) may become noticeable. If you use a high ISO speed and flash to shoot a close subject, overexposure may result.
g: Changing the ISO Speed to Suit the LightK ISO [AUTO] If the ISO speed is set to [AUTO], the actual ISO speed setting will be displayed when you press the shutter button halfway. As indicated below, the ISO speed will be set automatically to suit the shooting mode.
A Selecting a Picture StyleK By selecting a Picture Style, you can obtain image characteristics matching your photographic expression or the subject. In Basic Zone modes, [D] (Auto) is set automatically. Press the <XA> button. The Picture Style selection screen will appear.
A Selecting a Picture StyleK Q Portrait For nice skin tones. The image looks softer. Suited for close-up portraits. By changing the [Color tone] (p.128), you can adjust the skin tone. R Landscape For vivid blues and greens, and very sharp and crisp images. Effective for impressive landscapes.
A Customizing a Picture StyleK You can customize a Picture Style by adjusting individual parameters such as [Sharpness] and [Contrast]. To see the resulting effects, take test shots. To customize [Monochrome], see page 129. Press the <XA> button. The Picture Style selection screen will appear.
A Customizing a Picture StyleK Parameter Settings and Effects g Sharpness Adjusts the sharpness of the image. To make it less sharp, set it toward the E end. The closer it is to E, the softer the image will look. To make it sharper, set it toward the F end.
A Customizing a Picture StyleK V Monochrome Adjustment For Monochrome, you can also set [Filter effect] and [Toning effect] in addition to [Sharpness] and [Contrast] explained on the preceding page. kFilter Effect With a filter effect applied to a monochrome image, you can make white clouds or green trees stand out more.
A Registering a Picture StyleK You can select a base Picture Style such as [Portrait] or [Landscape], adjust its parameters as desired and register it under [User Def. 1], [User Def. 2], or [User Def. 3]. You can create multiple Picture Styles with different settings for parameters such as sharpness and contrast.

B: Matching the Light SourceK The function adjusting the color tone so that white objects look white in the picture is called white balance (WB). 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.
B: Matching the Light SourceK Select [Custom White Balance]. Under the [z2] tab, select [Custom White Balance], then press <0>. The custom white balance selection screen will appear. Import the white balance data. Select the image that was captured in step 1, then press <0>.
u Adjusting the Color Tone for the Light SourceK You can correct the white balance that is 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.
u Adjusting the Color Tone for the Light SourceK White Balance Auto Bracketing With just one shot, three images with different color tones 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 ContrastK 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.
Setting Noise ReductionK 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 Setting Noise ReductionK When [Multi Shot Noise Reduction] is Set If there is significant misalignment in the image due to camera shake, the noise reduction effect may be minimal. If you are handholding the camera, keep it steady to prevent camera shake.
3 Setting Noise ReductionK Set the desired setting. Select the desired setting, then press <0>. [Auto] For exposures of 1 sec. or longer, noise reduction is performed automatically if noise typical of long exposures is detected. This [Auto] setting is effective in most cases. [Enable] Noise reduction is performed for all exposures of 1 sec.
Correction of Lens Peripheral Illumination and Aberrations 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. And image distortion due to lens characteristics is called distortion.
3 Correction of Lens Peripheral Illumination and Aberrations Chromatic Aberration Correction Select the setting. Check that [Correction data available] is displayed for the attached lens. Select [Chromatic aberration], then press <0>. Select [Enable], then press <0>. Take the picture. The image will be recorded with the chromatic aberration corrected.
3 Correction of Lens Peripheral Illumination and Aberrations When distortion correction is enabled, the camera records an image range narrower than the one seen through the viewfinder. (Image periphery will be slightly cropped and resolution slightly lowered.) Distortion correction will be reflected in the captured image, but not in the viewfinder or Live View image during shooting.
Peripheral illumination correction, chromatic aberration correction, and distortion 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 the magnified view during Live View shooting, the peripheral illumination correction and chromatic aberration correction will not be reflected in the image displayed on the screen.
Reducing FlickerK 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.
3 Reducing FlickerK Under [54: Custom Functions (C.Fn)], if you set [9: Mirror lockup] to [1: Enable], the [Anti-flicker shoot.] setting will automatically switch to [Disable]. If the subject is against a dark background or if there is a bright light in the image, flicker may not be detected.
Setting the Color Reproduction RangeK The range of reproducible colors is called the 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. In Basic Zone modes, sRGB is set automatically. Select [Color space].
Advanced Operations In Creative Zone modes, you can change various settings of the camera as you desire to obtain a wide variety of shooting results, by selecting the shutter speed and/or aperture, adjusting the exposure as you prefer, etc. The J icon at the upper right of the page title indicates that the function is available only in Creative Zone modes.
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 on the subject. Look through the viewfinder and aim the AF point over the subject.
d: Program AE Shooting Tips Change the ISO speed. Use the built-in flash. To match the subject and ambient lighting level, you can change the ISO speed (p.122) or use the built-in flash (p.166). In the <d> mode, the built-in flash will not fire automatically. Therefore, press the <I>...
s: Conveying the Subject’s Movement You can either freeze the action or create motion blur with the <s> (Shutter-priority AE) mode on the Mode Dial. * <s> stands for Time value. Blurred motion Frozen action (Slow shutter speed: 1/30 sec.) (Fast shutter speed: 1/2000 sec.) Set the Mode Dial to <s>.
s: Conveying the Subject’s Movement Shooting Tips To freeze the motion of a fast-moving subject Use a fast shutter speed such as 1/4000 sec. to 1/500 sec. To blur a running child or animal and convey an impression of motion Use a medium shutter speed such as 1/250 sec.
f: Changing the Depth of Field To blur the background or to make everything near and far look sharp, set the Mode Dial to <f> (Aperture-priority AE) to adjust the depth of field (range of acceptable focus). * <f> stands for Aperture value, which is the size of the diaphragm hole inside the lens. Blurred background Sharp foreground and background (With a low aperture f/number: f/5.6)
f: Changing the Depth of Field Shooting Tips When using an aperture with a high f/number or shooting in low light scenes, note that camera shake can occur. A higher aperture f/number 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.
f: Changing the Depth of Field D Using the Built-in Flash 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.
a: Manual Exposure You can set both the shutter speed and aperture manually as desired. While referring to the exposure level indicator in the viewfinder, you can set the exposure as desired. This method is called manual exposure. * <a> stands for Manual. Set the Mode Dial to <a>.

q Changing the Metering ModeK Four methods (metering modes) to measure the subject’s brightness are provided. Normally, evaluative metering is recommended. In Basic Zone modes, metering mode is set automatically. Select [Metering mode]. Under the [z2] tab, select [Metering mode], then press <0>. Set the metering mode.
q Changing the Metering ModeK Center-weighted average metering The brightness is metered at the image center and then averaged for the entire scene. This metering mode is for advanced users. With q (Evaluative metering), the exposure setting will be locked when you press the shutter button halfway and focus is achieved.
Setting Exposure CompensationK Set exposure compensation if the exposure (without flash) does not come out as desired. This feature can be used in Creative Zone modes (except <a>). You can set the exposure compensation up to ±5 stops in 1/3-stop increments. Check the exposure level indicator.
Auto Exposure BracketingK This feature takes exposure compensation a step further by varying the exposure automatically (up to ±2 stops in 1/3-stop increments) with three shots as shown below. You can then choose the best exposure. This is called AEB (Auto Exposure Bracketing). Darker exposure Brighter exposure Standard exposure...
3 Auto Exposure BracketingK Canceling AEB Follow steps 1 and 2 to turn off the AEB range display (set to 0). The AEB setting will also be canceled automatically if the power switch is set to <2>, flash recycling is completed, etc. Shooting Tips Using AEB with continuous shooting If the drive mode is set to <i>...
A Locking the ExposureK You can lock the exposure 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 picture.
Mirror Lockup to Reduce Camera ShakeK Camera vibrations caused by the mirror’s reflex action is called “mirror shock”. Mirror lockup can reduce the blur caused by camera vibrations. This is useful especially when you are using a super telephoto lens or shooting closeups (macro photography).
Mirror Lockup to Reduce Camera ShakeK Do not point the camera toward an intense light source, such as the sun or an intense artificial light source. Doing so may damage the image sensor or the camera’s internal components. In very bright light, such as at the beach or a ski slope on a sunny day, take the picture promptly after mirror lockup is stabilized.
Flash Photography This chapter explains how to shoot with built-in flash and external Speedlites (EX-series, sold separately), how to set flash settings with the camera’s menu screen, and how to use the built-in flash for wireless flash shooting. Flash cannot be used with movie shooting. It will not fire. AEB cannot be used with flash.

D Using an External Speedlite EOS-dedicated, EX-series Speedlites 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.
Using Non-Canon Flash Units Sync Speed The camera can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash units at 1/200 sec. or slower shutter speeds. Use a sync speed slower than 1/200 sec. Be sure to test the flash unit beforehand to make sure it synchronizes properly with the camera.
Setting the FlashK With the built-in flash or an EX-series, external Speedlite compatible with flash function settings, you can use the camera’s menu to set flash functions and the external Speedlite’s Custom Functions. If you use an external Speedlite, attach the Speedlite to the camera and turn on the Speedlite before setting the flash functions.

The battery charger’s lamp blinks. If (1) the battery charger or battery pack has a problem or (2) communication with the battery pack failed (with a non-Canon battery pack), the protection circuit will stop charging, and the charge lamp will blink in orange.
Troubleshooting Guide [Battery communication error. Does this battery/do these batteries display the Canon logo?] is displayed. Do not use any battery pack other than a genuine Battery Pack LP- E17. Remove and install the battery again (p.36). If the battery contacts are dirty, use a soft cloth to clean them.
Troubleshooting Guide Shooting-Related Problems The lens cannot be attached. The camera cannot be used with EF-M lenses (p. The viewfinder is dark. Install a recharged battery pack in the camera (p. No images can be shot or recorded. Make sure the card is properly inserted (p. Slide the card’s write-protect switch to the write/erase position (p.
Troubleshooting Guide I cannot lock the focus and recompose the shot. Set the AF operation to One-Shot AF. Focus lock is not possible in the AI Servo AF mode, or when servo takes effect in AI Focus AF mode (p.100). Linear noise or moire appears in the image.
Troubleshooting Guide The continuous shooting speed is slow. Depending on the lens type, shutter speed, aperture, subject conditions, brightness, etc., the continuous shooting speed may become slower. If [z3: Anti-flicker shoot.] is set to [Enable] and you shoot under a flickering light source, the continuous shooting speed may become slightly slower, or the continuous shooting interval may become irregular.
Troubleshooting Guide Even though I set a decreased exposure compensation, the image comes out bright. Set [z2: Auto Lighting Optimizer] to [Disable]. When [Low], [Standard], or [High] is set, even if you set a decreased exposure compensation or flash exposure compensation, the image may come out bright (p.136).
Troubleshooting Guide The external 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.172). Under [z1: Flash control], if [Flash metering mode] in [External flash C.Fn setting] is set to [TTL flash metering] (autoflash), the flash will always fire at full output (p.178).
Troubleshooting Guide During Live View or movie shooting, a white <s> or red <E> icon is displayed. It indicates that the camera’s internal temperature is high. If the white <s> icon is displayed, the still photo’s image quality may deteriorate. If the red <E>...
Troubleshooting Guide The image flickers or horizontal stripes appear during movie shooting. Flickering, horizontal stripes (noise), or irregular exposures can be caused by fluorescent lighting, LED lighting, or other light sources during movie shooting. Also, changes in the exposure (brightness) or color tone may be recorded.
Troubleshooting Guide 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.146). The file name starts with “MVI_”. It is a movie file (p.262). The file numbering does not start from 0001.
Troubleshooting Guide [Eye-Fi settings] does not appear. [Eye-Fi settings] will appear only when an Eye-Fi card is inserted in the camera. If the Eye-Fi card has a write-protect switch set to the LOCK position, you will not be able to check the card’s connection status or disable Eye-Fi transmission (p.352).
Troubleshooting Guide No picture on the TV set. Check that the HDMI cable or stereo AV cable’s plug is inserted all the way in (p.298-301). Set the [53: Video system] correctly to [NTSC] or [PAL] (depending on the video system of your TV set). If [51: Wi-Fi/NFC] is set to [Enable], the camera cannot be connected to a TV set.
Troubleshooting Guide 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.271). Automatic sensor cleaning does not work. If you repeatedly turn the power switch <1> / <2> at a short interval, the <f>...
Communications between the camera and lens is faulty. Clean the lens contacts. Clean the electrical contacts on the camera and lens, use a Canon lens, or remove and install the battery pack again (p.25, 26, 36). Card cannot be accessed. Reinsert/change card or format card with camera.
