    Camera CareThis camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physicalshock.

    The camera is not waterproof and cannot be used underwater. If youaccidentally drop the camera into water, promptly consult your nearestCanon Service Center. Wipe off any water droplets with a dry cloth. If thecamera has been exposed to salty air, wipe it with a well-wrung wet cloth.Never leave the camera near anything having a strong magnetic field suchas a magnet or electric motor. Also avoid using or leaving the camera nearanything emitting strong radio waves such as a large antenna. Strongmagnetic fields can cause camera misoperation or destroy image data.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. Never attempt todisassemble the camera yourself.Use a blower to blow away dust on the lens, viewfinder, reflex mirror, andfocusing screen. Do not use cleaners that contain organic solvents to cleanthe camera body or lens. For stubborn dirt, take the camera to the nearestCanon Service Center.Do not touch the cameras electrical contacts with your fingers. This is toprevent 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 preventcondensation, first put the camera in a sealed plastic bag and let it adjust tothe warmer temperature before taking it out of the bag.If condensation forms on the camera, do not use the camera. This is to avoiddamaging the camera. If there is condensation, remove the lens, card andbattery from the camera, and wait until the condensation has evaporatedbefore using the camera.If the camera will not be used for an extended period, remove the batteryand store the camera in a cool, dry, well-ventilated location. Even while thecamera is in storage, press the shutter button a few times once in a while tocheck that the camera is still working.

    Avoid storing the camera where there are corrosive chemicals such as adarkroom or chemical lab.If the camera has not been used for an extended period, test all its functionsbefore using it. 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 Canondealer or check the camera yourself and make sure it is working properly.

    Handling Precautions

  • 8/12/2019 Canon Eos Rebelt1i Eos 500d-En

    13/24413

    Handling Precautions

    LCD Monitor Although the LCD monitor is manufactured with very high precisiontechnology with over 99.99% effective pixels, there might be a few dead

    pixels among the remaining 0.01% or less pixels. Dead pixels displayingonly black or red, etc., are not a malfunction. They do not affect the imagesrecorded.If the LCD monitor is left on for a prolonged period, screen burn-in may occurwhere you see remnants of what was displayed. However, this is onlytemporary and will disappear when the camera is left unused for a few days.In low or high temperatures, the LCD monitor display may seem slow or itmight look black. It will return to normal at room temperature.

    CardsTo protect the card and its recorded data, note the following:

    Do not drop, bend, or wet the card. Do not subject it to excessive force,physical shock, or vibration.Do not store or use the card near anything having a strong magnetic fieldsuch as a TV set, speakers, or magnet. Also avoid places prone to havingstatic electricity.Do not leave the card in direct sunlight or near a heat source.Store the card in a case.

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

    After detaching the lens from the camera, attach the lenscaps or put down the lens with the rear end up to avoidscratching the lens surface and electrical contacts.

    Cautions During Prolonged UseIf you use continuous shooting, Live View shooting, ormovie shooting for a prolonged period, the camera maybecome hot. Although this is not a malfunction, holding thehot camera for a long period can cause slight skin burns.

    About smear adhering to the front of the sensor Besides dust entering the camera from outside, in rare cases lubricant from thecameras internal parts may adhere to the front of the sensor. In case visiblespots still remain after the automatic sensor cleaning, having the sensor cleanedby a Canon Service Center is recommended.

    Charging the Battery

    Recharge the battery on the day before or on the day it is to be

    used.Even during non-use or storage, a charged battery will graduallydischarge and lose its power.

    After recharging the battery, detach it and unplug the chargerfrom the power outlet.

    When not using the camera, remove the battery.If the battery is left in the camera for a prolonged period, a smallamount of power current is released, resulting in excess dischargeand shorter battery life. Store the battery with the protective coverattached. Storing the battery after it is fully charged can lower thebatterys performance.

    The battery charger can also be used in foreign countries.The battery charger is compatible with a 100 V AC to 240 V AC 50/

    60 Hz power source. If necessary, attach a commercially-availableplug adapter for the respective country or region. Do not attach anyportable voltage transformer to the battery charger. Doing so candamage the battery charger.

    If the battery becomes exhausted quickly even after being fullycharged, the battery has worn out.Purchase a new battery.

    Aim the AF point over an area having good contrast, then press theshutter button halfway (p.192). If you are too close to the subject,move away and try again.

    Sometimes multiple AF points flash simultaneously.This indicates that focus has been achieved at all those AF points. As long asthe AF point covering the desired subject flashes, you can take the picture.

    The beeper continues to beep softly. (The focus confirmation

    In low light, the built-in flash fired a series of flashes.To assist the autofocusing, pressing the shutter button halfway maytrigger the built-in flash to fire a series of flashes. This is called AF-

    assist beam. It is effective up to approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet away.Although flash was used, the picture came out dark.The subject was too far away. The subject should be within 5meters/16.4 feet from the camera.

    When flash was used, the bottom part of the picture came outunnaturally dark.The subject was too close to the camera, and a shadow was created

    by the lens. The subject should be at least 1 meter/3.3 feet awayfrom the camera. If a hood has been attached to the lens, remove itbefore taking the flash picture.

    When you want to photograph flowers or small things up close, use the (Close-up) mode. To make small things appear much larger, use amacro lens (sold separately).

    Use a simple background. A simple background makes the flower, etc., stand out better.

    Move to the subject as close as possible.Check the lens for its minimum focusing distance. Some lenseshave indications such as < 4 0.25m/0.8ft >. The lens minimumfocusing distance is measured from the < V > (focal plane) mark on

    the camera to the subject. If you are too close to the subject, thefocus confirmation light < o > will blink.Under low light, the built-in flash will fire. If you are too close to thesubject and the bottom of the picture looks dark, move away fromthe subject.

    With a zoom lens, use the telephoto end.If you have a zoom lens, using the telephoto end will make the

    3 Setting the Image-recording Quality

    I want to select the quality matching the paper size for printing.

    Refer to the diagram on the left whenchoosing the image-recording quality. Ifyou want to crop the image, selecting ahigher quality (more pixels) such as 73 ,83 , 1 , or 1 +73 is recommended.

    Whats the difference between 7 and 8 ?It indicates a different image quality due to a different compressionrate. Even with the same number of pixels, the 7 image has higherimage quality. If 8 is selected, the image quality will be slightly lower,but more images can be saved to the card.

    I took more shots than the number of possible shots indicated.Depending on the shooting conditions, you may be able to takemore shots than was indicated. Or, it might be fewer than indicated.The possible shots displayed is only an estimate.

    Does the camera display the maximum burst?The maximum burst is displayed in the viewfinders right side. Sinceit is only a single-digit indicator 0 - 9, any number higher than 9 willbe displayed only as 9. Note that this number will also be displayedeven when no card is installed in the camera. Be careful not to shootwithout a card in the camera.

    When do I use the 1 mode?1 images require processing with your computer. For details, seeAbout 1 and About 1 +73 on the next page.Other than 1 , the images will be in the JPEG type commonly used

    in digital cameras.

    1 is the raw image data before it is made into a 73 or other images.

    Although 1 images require software like Digital Photo Professional(provided) so they can be displayed on the computer, they also offerflexibility for image adjustments possible only with 1 . 1 is effectivewhen you want to precisely modify the image yourself or shoot animportant subject.

    1 +73 records both a 1 and 73 image with a single shot. The twoimages are saved to the card simultaneously. The two images will be savedin the same folder with the same file numbers (file extension .JPG for JPEGand .CR2 for RAW). 73 images can be viewed or printed even with acomputer which does not have the cameras provided software.
