External Flash

E-TTL II with EX series Speedlites, wireless multi-flash support with optional ST-E2 transmitter. E-TTL II does not assume that the AF point in use covers the main subject. Instead, when the shutter button is pressed completely, ambient light is measured just before a pre-flash fires. For each metering zone, the ambient reading and the pre-flash reading are compared

Processing Parameters

Parameter Set 1 (contrast, sharpness and color
saturation set to +1) is optimized for images upon which no retouching will be performed before direct printing. Parameter Set 2 (contrast, sharpness, color saturation and color tone set to 0, i.e., mid-scale), is optimized for
images that will be retouched or adjusted. Parameter Sets 3, 4 and 5 can be customized by the user for contrast, sharpness, color saturation and color tone. There
is also a monochrome Parameter set which incorporates five levels each of contrast and sharpness in
addition to filter effects (none, yellow, orange, red and green) that are just like camera filter effects and toning effects (none, sepia, blue, purple, green)

2 Standard Parameters Plus up to three custom processing parameters can be set. No monochrome (B&W) Parameter set.

Custom Functions

9 custom settings.
C. Fn. 1 changes the functions of the SET button and the cross keys and provides for quick and easy access to frequently used functions. The five choices are: 0,
Normal; 1, SET button controls image recording quality; 2, SET controls processing parameters; 3, SET controls image playback; 4, cross keys control AF point selection.
C. Fn. 2 enables the dark noise subtraction noise reduction unction
for long exposures. It provides clearer images of night scenes or the night sky but doubles image processing time between exposures.
C. Fn. 3 sets the flash sync speed in aperture priority auto mode to a fixed 1/200 second or leaves the sync speed on auto/slow sync.
C. Fn. 4 determines selectable functions for the shutter and AE lock buttons. The four choices are: 0, AF/AE lock; 1, AE lock/AF; 2, AF/AF lock, no AE lock and 3, AE/AF, no AE lock.
C. Fn. 5 controls the AF-assist beam. The three choices are ON, OFF and fire only the external flash.
C. Fn. 6 controls whether manually-adjusted exposure level increments are in 1/2 or 1/3
stop units.
C. Fn. 7 enables the mirror lockup function. When C. Fn. 7-1 i selected, the mirror locks up when the shutter button is pressed completely. The shot is taken when the shutter button is released and then pressed completely again. The maximum mirror lockup duration is 30 seconds.
C. Fn. 8 controls whether the E-TTL II autoflash system operates in its evaluative mode or its averaging mode.
C. Fn. 9 determines whether the built-in flash or an accessory Canon EX-series Speedlite is synchronized to fire after the first shutter curtain completes its travel or just before the second shutter curtain begins to move.
