shooting Shooting is were you aim at any AF point over the subject. Aiming the center AF point over the subject will make focusing easier as before you take the picture. The following frames show different types of shootings. Depending on the scene position, the subject or subjects can be placed towards the left or the right to create a balanced background and good perspective. Recomposing the shot Shooting a moving subject If the subject is moving during or after you focus, the AL servo AF will take effect to focus on the subject continuously. As long as you keep aiming the AF point on the subject while pressing the shutter button halfway, the focusing will be continuous. Shooting Portraits This mode blurs the background to make the subject stand out. It also makes flesh tones and hair look softer in the shot. Shooting landscapes The use of this mode is use for wide scenery, night scenes, or to have everything in focus from near to far. Shooting close ups When you take a photograph of flowers or small things up close, use the close up mode to make the small things appear much larger. Disabling Flash In paces were flash photography is not allowed, use the flash off mode. This mode is effective for candlelight scenes when you want to obtain the candlelight effect. Program AE This is use to obtain a exposure to the subject. The camera sets the exposure automatically which is called Program AE.

Neutral This is used for users who prefer to process images with their own personal computer. It allows the use of nature colors and subdued images. Faithful This is used for users who prefer to process images with their personal computer when the subject is captured under a color temperature of 5200k. The color is then adjusted calorimetry to match the subjects color which can use to dull and subdue the image. Monochrome This used for black and white images.

Safety Precautions Photographing a moving subject, whether it is a children running around or a moving vehicles use sports mode. To shoot someone at night and to obtain a real natural looking exposure in the background, us the night portrait mode. Camera Care 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. Do not 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. Camera Care Continued LCD Monitor Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precision technology with lots of pixels. Dead pixels displaying only black or red, etc., are not a malfunction.
They do not affect the images recorded. But 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 temporarily and will disappear when the camera is left unused for a few days.

Cards are precision devices. Do not drop the card or subject them to vibration. Doing so could damage the images that are recorded on them.

Do not store or use the card near anything having a strong magnetic field such as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Camera Care Continued 1. Wrap your right hand around the camera grip firmly.
2. Hold the lens bottom lightly with you right hands finger.
3. Press the shutter button lightly with your right hands index finger.
4. Press your arms and elbows lightly against the front of your body.
5. Press the camera against your face and look thought the viewfinder.
6. To maintain a stable stance, place one foot in front of the other. Holding the Camera More Camera Care 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 the camera. 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. Do not leave the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source. Doing so can warp the cards and make them unusable.

Do not spill any liquid onto the card. Always store your cards in a case to protect the data stored on them.

Do not bend the card or subject it to any excessive force or physical shock.

Do not store the card in hot, dusty, or humid locations.

When you shoot continuously for a prolonged period or use Live View shooting for a long 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. Camera Care Continued Owner's Manual
