*2: With electronic first-curtain, continuous shooting speed is the same for Highspeed continuous + and High-speed continuous shooting.
*3: Slower maximum continuous shooting speed when set to Servo AF with lenses other than those in the lens list attached. For details on lenses that support the indicated continuous shooting speed, refer to the separate lens list.
* With electronic first-curtain, maximum continuous shooting speed is (or may be) reduced in flash photography, anti-flicker shooting, or Dual Pixel RAW shooting.
* With certain lenses, zooming during continuous shooting with electronic shutter may cause changes in exposure even at the same f/number. For detail on relevant lenses, refer to the separate lens list (and note that even with zoom lenses not listed, sudden zooming may cause flickering or changes in exposure).
HDR Shooting (HDR PQ) Disable / Enable
* Can be used in conjunction with Auto Lighting Optimizer.
Still Photo HDR PQ Click here to view the full specifications PDF.
Movie HDR PQ Click here to view the full specifications PDF.
HDR Mode Off / Moving sub. / Dynamic range
* [Dynamic range]: For each shot, three images are captured consecutively at different exposures (standard exposure, underexposure, and overexposure).
* [Moving sub.]: Output of a wide gradation without causing motion blur due to image composition by one exposure is possible.
* [Moving sub.]: Minimum ISO speed is ISO 800.
* When [HDR mode] is set, [Picture Style] options are limited to [Standard] and [Monochrome], and maximum shutter speed is 1/8000 sec.
* [Moving sub.]: [Electronic] shutter mode may increase subject distortion (due to rolling shutter).
* Shooting JPEG or HEIF images is supported.
* Can be set in conjunction with HDR shooting (HDR PQ), which enables shooting with a wide dynamic range ([Dynamic range]: up to approx. 3000 nits; [Moving sub.]: up to approx. 3000 nits).
Continuous HDR Shooting (still images) 1 shot only / Every shot
* Not available when set to [Moving sub.].
Shooting Times Click here to view the full specifications PDF.
*1: Time available for continuous shooting in 23°C / 73°F environment, from a cold start. If the camera is in LV mode standby before shooting or the ambient temperature is high, the shooting time may be shorter.
*2: According to Canon measurement conditions when using UHS-II cards conforming to Canon testing standards.
*3: The maximum duration of shooting may be shorter under some circumstances even if recording begins from "cold start," due to a rise in temperature inside the camera caused by pre-shooting camera setting operations or by prolonged use of the Live View mode. When the card is full, movie recording stops automatically. In this case, duration time when you erase the data and restart shooting.

When you call, have your Product serial number and your date of purchase available to expedite service. A Canon Customer Care representative will attempt to diagnose the nature of the problem and correct it over the telephone. If the problem cannot be corrected over the telephone, you will be asked to follow the applicable procedures for MAIL-IN SERVICE. Note that a dated proof of purchase is required at the time of service. This requirement will be satisfied by providing a copy of your dated bill of sale.

 

** Technical support program specifics subject to change without notice.

 

MAIL-IN SERVICE is a program under which your Product is repaired by a Canon U.S.A. or a Canon Canada authorized service center for the Product. Authorized service center information can be obtained by visiting www.canontechsupport.com (US customers only) or by contacting the Canon U.S.A., Customer Care Center or Canon Canada Customer Information Centre at 1-800-OK-CANON (1-800-652-2666). You will be given the name, address and phone number of an authorized service center.

 

It is your responsibility to properly package and send the defective Product, together with a copy of your dated proof of purchase, a complete explanation of the problem and a return address to the authorized service center at your expense. Do not include any other items with the defective Product. The Product covered by this limited warranty and proven to be defective upon inspection will be repaired and returned to you without charge by the authorized service center. Any Product received by the authorized service center that is not covered by the limited warranty will be returned unrepaired, or at the discretion of the authorized service provider, you may receive a written estimate of repair at such cost as the service center may establish from time to time.

 

This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state (or province to province in Canada).
