  • Displaying the feature guide for the digital zoom

    • The feature guide description of the digital zoom function that appears on the LCD monitor of the EOS 600D may need to be clarified slightly. As such, we are revising this description.

      Answer :



      When using the digital zoom, the image can be magnified while maintaining the full HD image size of [1920×1080]. However, because the image is processed digitally, the higher the magnification, the rougher the image will look. Please refer to p.152 of the user’s manual for full information about use of the digital zoom.

  • Saving Movies on DVDs or Blu-ray Discs

    • The software that comes with the camera does not have a function for saving movies or still images that have been imported to a PC on DVDs or Blu-ray discs. Please use commercially available software to make DVDs or Blu-ray discs. 
      Note that you cannot connect your camera to a commercially available DVD/Blu-ray recorder with cables to import movies or still photos.


      NOTE

      Using ZoomBrowser EX, which comes with your camera, you can record still images on CD-R/RW discs. For further information, please refer to Saving images to CD-R/CD-RW discs (ZoomBrowser EX Ver6.7).


      REFERENCE

      • To view movies on a DVD playback device (such as a DVD player), it is necessary to convert your movie files to a type that can be played back on a DVD playback device by using what is generally called "DVD authoring software." Please refer to the instruction manual supplied with your camera for information about file types for images.
      • It may not be possible to play back the discs you have created on some playback devices. When you use commercially available software, please see the instruction manuals to check the specifications of the playback device in use.

      General Note for Live View Shooting

      Please be aware of the following notes for Live View shooting.

      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.

  • External microphones that can be used with the EOS REBEL T3i/EOS 600D

    • You can use a commercially available external microphone that is equipped with a stereo mini plug whose size is 3.5 mm in diameter with the camera.


      NOTE

      • It is possible to use a microphone that supports plug-in power (which is supplied from a camera to the microphone) because the EOS REBEL T3i/EOS 600D is compatible with plug-in power.
      • It is possible to use a condenser microphone. However, it is not possible to use a condenser microphone that requires phantom power (which is supplied from external power equipment to the microphone).
      • It is not possible to use a dynamic microphone.
      • The impedance of the microphones that can be used with the camera is around 200 Ω to 2KΩ.

      ・・・User selectable

      ・・・Not selectable


      ATTENTION

      During movie shooting, continuous focusing of a moving subject is not possible.

      Using Manual Exposure

      When the [Movie exposure] is set to [Manual], you can manually set the ISO speed, shutter speed, and aperture for movie shooting. Using manual exposure to shoot movies is for advanced users.

      Shutter speedTo set the shutter speed, turn the <Main Dial>. The settable shutter speeds depend on the frame rate.

       : 1/4000 sec. - 1/60 sec.

       : 1/4000 sec. - 1/30 sec.
      ApertureTo set the aperture, hold down the <  > button and turn the <Main Dial>.
      ISO speedPress the <  > button and use either <Main Dial> or <Cross Keys> to select the ISO speed.
      Auto ISO setting: ISO 100 - 6400
      Manual ISO setting: ISO 100 - 6400


      ATTENTION

      • If you use a lens whose aperture changes while you zoom, you should not zoom while shooting a movie. Zooming while shooting a movie may record changes in the exposure.
      • If you shoot a movie under fluorescent lighting, the movie image might flicker.


      NOTE

      • With Auto ISO, the correct movie exposure will usually be obtained even if the light level changes.
      • When shooting a movie of a moving subject, a shutter speed of 1/30 sec. to 1/125 sec. is recommended. The faster the shutter speed, the less smooth the subject's movement will look.
      • Changing the aperture during movie shooting is not recommended since variations in the exposure, due to the drive of the lens aperture, will be recorded.
