    Dust Delete Data acquisition and appending

    • The coordinates of the dust adhering to the low-pass filter are detected by a test shot and appended to subsequent images.
    • The dust coordinate data appended to the image is used by the provided software to automatically erase the dust spots.
    • Not available with EF-S lenses, in cropped shooting or when distortion correction is applied.

    Single shooting
    High-speed continuous shooting

      • Max. approx. 8.0 fps

        • The conditions are attaining the maximum continuous shooting speed are as follows:
        • Shooting with a fully charged battery in One-Shot AF mode at a 1/1000 sec. or faster shutter speed and maximum aperture (depending on the lens), at room temperature (73°F/23°C), with flicker reduction, Dual Pixel RAW shooting and Digital Lens Optimizer disabled.
        • In One-Shot AF mode with Image Stabilizer off when using these lenses: EF 300mm f/4L IS USM, EF 28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.
        • The continuous shooting speed for high-speed continuous shooting may be lower, depending on conditions such as these: battery level, temperature, flicker reduction, Dual Pixel RAW shooting, shutter speed, aperture, subject conditions, brightness, AF operation, type of lens, use of flash and shooting settings.
        • The maximum continuous shooting speed may be lower when using a cold battery in cold environments or when the battery level is low, at approx. 6.0 shots/sec.

    With Servo AF: Max. approx. 5.0 fps (shooting speed priority) [Silent LV shooting: Mode 1]

        • With Servo AF, the maximum continuous shooting speed may become slower depending on subject conditions or the lens used. Also, the maximum continuous shooting speed will become slower when setting the [LV silent shooting] to [Disable].

    Low-speed continuous shooting (Tracking priority)

        • Max. approx. 3.0 fps
        • With Dual Pixel RAW: Max. approx. 2.2 fps
