  • What causes black spots to appear in the same places in images taken and how can I get rid of them?

    • If certain kinds of black stains, dots, or dust are always visible in the same areas on images captured with the camera, dirt or dust may have adhered to the image sensor (CMOS).

      Clean the image sensor, prevent dust from appearing in images

      Depending on the environment or circumstances when changing the lenses on digital SLR cameras, dust or dirt in the air can sometimes adhere to the image sensor. 
      Because this phenomenon cannot be completely prevented due to structural reasons, the image sensor can be cleaned when you think there might be dust on it. 
      How to clean the image sensor varies depending on the model being used.

      Among EOS Digital cameras, some models come equipped with a function called a "Self Cleaning Sensor Unit," which automatically cleans dust off the surface of the image sensor. If you are using one of the following models, please see Automatic Sensor Cleaning.

  • Is it possible to edit images with the EOS REBEL T3i/EOS 600D?

  • Matching the Camera Settings to the Light Source (What is White Balance?)

    • The human eye captures white as white, red as red and blue as blue, regardless of whether you are outside under the sun or inside under incandescent lighting. Although this is something that we take for granted, the human eye actually adapts to correct the changes in color under different light sources. 
      In reality, when light sources vary, colors caught as the reflection of those light sources also vary. For instance, films for cameras that use film are designed to capture the most appropriate coloring outside under the sun. Thus when you take pictures under incandescent or fluorescent lighting without using a flash, the colors in the resulting picture may seem strange. 

      This camera is equipped with a handy feature called "White Balance" that corrects the changes in color under different light sources, just like the human eye.
      This camera is equipped with a feature called "White Balance". This feature corrects the changes in color under different light sources, just like the human eye. One of the white balance settings, "Auto White Balance" (AWB) automatically adjusts to correct the changes in color under different light sources.
      The function adjusting the color tone so that white objects look white in the picture is called white balance (WB). Normally, the (Auto) setting will obtain the correct white balance.

      If natural-looking colors cannot be obtained with , you can select the white balance to match the light source or set it manually. For example, when shooting a landscape in sunset, if the color tone is not natural in the setting, you may obtain more natural colors by selecting the <  > (Cloudy, twilight, sunset) setting.

      In Basic Zone modes, is set automatically.

      *2 The color temperature range may vary slightly for each model.

       ] (Custom White Balance) enables you to manually set the white balance for a specific light source for better accuracy. Do this procedure under the actual light source to be used. For more information on registering custom white balance, please refer to the instruction manual that came with your camera.


      NOTE

      The composition ratio of three primary colors (red, green, and blue) differs depending on the color temperature.
      At higher color temperatures, the color becomes bluish, and at lower temperatures, the color becomes reddish. As the color temperature becomes higher, the color changes from red, orange, yellow, white, to blue-white.
      For example, if you shoot a white subject under a tungsten lamp, the image becomes reddish; and under fluorescent light, it becomes greenish.

  • How to compensate for dark (underexposed) images or bright (overexposed) images

    • If the image captured with your camera is too dark or too bright, the exposure value may not be optimal.

      Exposure adjustments are a process in which the amount of light exposed to an image sensor is adjusted by the aperture value or the shutter speed to accommodate different levels of subject brightness. Correct exposure refers to optimal exposure for a subject, whereas underexposure is insufficient exposure and overexposure is excessive exposure.

      If the mode dial of EOS DIGITAL is set to a mode other than , the camera automatically sets the appropriate exposure value. However, depending on the shooting conditions or the subject, changing the exposure value manually is a better way to capture images that are closer to your intentions.
      This is called exposure compensation. You can manually adjust the exposure by increasing or decreasing the exposure value that is automatically determined by your camera.

      For further information for setting exposure compensation, please refer to the instruction manuals that came with your camera.

  • Auto Focus Capability

    • Images come out blurred

      AF (Auto Focus), focusing subjects automatically, is a convenient function with certain cameras. However, as a limitation of AF accuracy, the best focus point sometimes may shift forward and back a small amount. 
      The AF accuracy of the Canon digital SLR camera is judged with the same viewing prerequisite as regulated in film cameras: "AF accuracy is judged when print out the whole image and view it from a normal viewing distance." 

      When using digital cameras, it is easy to magnify or print out just a part of the image once downloaded to your computer. This can magnify small errors in AF that would otherwise not be apparent when being viewed at a more traditional print size.

      You are seeing slight errors in AF magnified many times over when they would not normally be visible when the image is printed. 
      Even if small errors in AF are visible on the computer monitor, these errors may not be visible when the image is viewed as a full size print.

      Tips for taking sharp and crisp images

      For your information, below are a few tips to help you take sharp images:

      1. Remember that AF may fail to focus certain subjects. 
      AF has difficulty in focusing certain subjects. In this case, try to focus on different point of the subject (i.e. an area with greater contrast), or use Manual Focus (MF).
      For further information, please refer to the Related Information.

      2. Take advantage of deeper depth of field. 
      "Depth of field" is the range where acceptable focus achieved in front of and behind the point of focus. The depth of field is changed by both the aperture and focal length of the lens. Using deeper depth of field will help avoid getting out of focus images.
      Stopping the aperture down (smaller aperture) makes the depth of field deeper. 
      If you use a zoom lens, move the zoom control towards wide-angle (shorter focal length) in order to get a deeper depth of field.

      3. Shoot carefully without camera shake. 
      When the camera shakes, the image becomes blurred. Sometimes an image with camera shake may look like an out of focus one. Shoot carefully without camera shake. For further information, please refer to How do I prevent camera shake?.

      4. Use a sharpening filter in image retouching software. 
      It is possible to correct the sharpness and contrast of the image after shooting by using the retouching software such as Adobe Photoshop Elements on your computer. However, you need to be careful about the correction because over-correction may cause a deterioration of image quality.
      It is also possible to adjust the amount of the correction by changing settings of Picture Style of the camera before the image is shot and recorded as a JPEG images.
      For more information, please refer to the instruction manuals that came with your camera.

      5. Avoid magnifying and printing just an extremely small area. 
      Magnifying and printing an extremely small area multiplies slight inaccuracies of focus or the noise of pixels of the image. 
      It is recommended to crop a larger area when cropping the image.

      ATTENTION

      Notes About the Live View Image
      • Under low or bright light conditions, the Live View image might not reflect the brightness of the captured image.
      • If the light source within the image changes, the screen might flicker. If this happens, stop and resume the Live View shooting under the actual light source to be used.
      • If you point the camera in a different direction, it might throw off the Live View image's correct brightness momentarily. Wait until the brightness level stabilizes before shooting.


      White [  ] and Red [  ] Internal Temperature Warning Icons
      • If the camera’s internal temperature increases due to prolonged Live View shooting or a high ambient temperature, a white [  ] icon will appear. If you continue shooting while this icon is displayed, the image quality of still photos may deteriorate. You should stop the Live View shooting and allow the camera to cool down before shooting again.
      • If the camera’s internal temperature further increases while the white [  ] icon is displayed, a red [  ] icon will start blinking. This blinking icon is a warning that the Live View shooting will soon be terminated automatically. If this happens, you will not be able to shoot again until the camera’s internal temperature decreases. Turn off the power and let the camera rest for a while.
      • Shooting with the Live View function at a high temperature for a prolonged period will cause the [  ] and [  ] icons to appear earlier. When not shooting, turn off the camera.


      Live Mode and  (Face Detection) Live Mode Notes
      • Focusing will take slightly longer.
      • Even when focus has been achieved, pressing the shutter button halfway will focus again.
      • The image brightness may change during and after the AF operation.
      • If the light source changes while the Live View image is displayed, the screen might flicker and focusing can be difficult. If this happens, stop the Live View shooting and autofocus under the actual light source first.


      NOTE

      When shooting with the camera connected to a TV
      If you shoot in Live View with the camera connected to a TV, you can use the TV screen as the LCD monitor. This is convenient when you want to enlarge what you want to shoot to check the details. However, when connecting the camera to the TV with an HDMI cable, please be aware of the following points. 
      • When the camera is connected to a TV set via HDMI cable, the camera will read the information on the TV set's compatible video input signals. The camera then selects the optimum video output signal (1080/60i, 1080/50i, 480/60p, or 576/50p) and the video is displayed.
      • When you are not shooting, the camera outputs the video at the ratio displayed on the LCD monitor as is, so it is not possible to use the whole screen for a 16:9 display.
      • When movie shooting starts, the video signal will automatically switch to 480/60p or 576/50p due to the imaging engine's compatible limits, resulting in a smaller image size (the size will vary according to the size of the TV screen). However, many HD TV sets will automatically try and fit the image to 16:9, so it will look unnatural with the image stretched horizontally.
      • If you connect the camera to a TV set and shoot a movie, the TV will not output any sound during the shooting. However, the sound will be properly recorded.

      For more information on how to connect a camera to a TV, please refer to the instruction manuals that came with your camera.

  • Shooting with Focus Lock (EOS REBEL T3i/EOS 600D)

    • With [One-Shot AF], while you press the shutter button halfway to focus a still subject, the focus will be locked. You can then recompose the shot and press the shutter button completely to take the picture. This is called "focus lock".
      It is an effective method for shooting scenes with both close and distant subjects, such as animals in a cage and people in front of a landscape.

      Example of Focus Lock

      In normal autofocus settings, if you want to take a picture by focusing on the nearest flower, the focus is usually on the leaves at the center as shown in the left picture. 
      In such cases, use Focus Lock to focus on the target subject as shown in the right picture.

      Shooting with Focus Lock

      1. Set the power switch to .

      2. Set the lens focus mode switch to .

      3. Press the (AF mode selection) button.

      4. Press the to set the AF mode to [ONE SHOT] (One Shot AF), then press button.

      5. Press the shutter button halfway to autofocus.

      When focus is achieved, the AF point which achieved focus will be displayed, and the focus confirmation light [  ] in the viewfinder will also light. 

      6. Recompose the picture, while pressing and holding the shutter button halfway down.

      7. Press the shutter button completely to take the picture.


      NOTE

      Focus may not be achieved if the distance between the subject and the camera changes after the focus is locked.
