Canon EOS 700D Manual Focus

The EOS 700D is easy to use from the moment you first pick it up. Shoot and focus with a single tap of the camera’s touch screen, and use pinch and swipe gestures to navigate when reviewing images
Track moving subjects even if they move across the scene with an autofocus system comprising 9 cross-type AF points. Continuous shooting at 5 fps for bursts of up to 22 shots means you’ll never miss that decisive moment.
Canon EOS 700D Manual Focusing

Canon EOS 700D Manual Focusing

  1. Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF>.
  2. Focus the subject.
  • Focus by turning the lens focusing ring until the subject looks sharp in the viewfinder.
If you hold down the shutter button halfway during Canon EOS 700D manual focusing, the AF point achieving focus will light up briefly in red, the beeper will sound, and the focus confirmation light in the viewfinder will light up

Continuous Shooting

You can shoot up to approx. 5 shots per second. This is effective for shooting a child running toward you or capturing different facial expressions.
  1. Press the <drive mode> button.
  2. Select <Continuous Shooting.> Press the <L/R> key or turn the <main dial> dial to select <Continuous Shooting> continuous shooting, then press <set>.
  3. Take the picture. The camera Canon 700D shoots continuously while you hold down the shutter button completely.
Tip Shoting
1. Also set the AF operation matching the subject.
  • For a moving subject 
  • When AI Servo AF is set, focusing will be continuous during continuous shooting.
  • For still subjects
  • When One-Shot AF is set, the camera eos rebel T5i will focus only once during continuous shooting.
2.Flash can also be used.
Since the flash will require recycling time, the continuous shooting speed will be slower.
  • The maximum continuous shooting speed of approx. 5 shots per second is achieved with a shutter speed of 1/500 sec. or faster and at the maximum aperture (differs depending on the lens). The continuous shooting speed may decrease due to shutter speed, aperture, subject conditions, brightness, lens, flash use, etc.
  • With the following lenses, 5 shots per second is achieved with One- Shot AF and the Image Stabilizer turned off: EF300mm f/4L IS USM, EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, EF75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM, and EF100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.
  • In AI Servo AF operation, the continuous shooting speed may become slightly slower depending on the subject and the lens used.
  • When the battery level is low, the continuous shooting speed will become slightly slower.

Canon EOS 700D Autofocus Operation

You can select the AF (auto focus) operation characteristics suiting the shooting conditions or subject. In Basic Zone modes, the optimum AF operation is set automatically for the respective shooting mode.
  1. On the lens, set the focus mode switch to <AF>.
  2. Press the <play Af> button. [AF operation] will appear.
  3. Select the AF operation. Press the <left/right> key or turn the <main dial> dial to select the desired AF operation, then press <set>.
  4. Focus the subject. Aim the AF point over the subject and press the shutter button halfway. The Canon rebel T5i will then auto focus in the selected AF operation.

One-Shot AF for Still Subjects

Suited for still subjects. When you press the shutter button halfway, the camera will focus only once.
  1. When focus is achieved, the dot inside the AF point achieving focus lights up briefly in red, and the focus confirmation light in the viewfinder will also light up.
  2. With evaluative metering, the exposure setting will be set at the same time focus is achieved.
  3. While you hold down the shutter button halfway, the focus will be locked. You can then recompose the shot if desired
  4. If focus cannot be achieved, the focus confirmation light in the viewfinder will blink. If this occurs, the picture cannot be taken even if the shutter button is pressed completely. Recompose the picture and try to focus again.
  5. If [Beep] is set to [Disable], the beeper will not sound when focus is achieved.

AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects

This AF operation is suited for moving subjects when the focusing distance keeps changing. While you hold down the shutter button halfway, the subject will be focused continuously.
  1. The exposure is set at the moment the picture is taken.
  2. When the AF point selection is automatic, the camera first uses the center AF point to focus. During autofocusing, if the subject moves away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long as the subject is covered by another AF point.

AI Focus AF for Automatic Switching of AF Operation

AI Focus AF switches the AF operation from One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF automatically if a still subject starts moving.
  • After the subject is focused in One-Shot AF operation, if the subject starts moving, the camera will detect the movement, change the AF operation automatically to AI Servo AF, and keep tracking the moving subject.
When focus is achieved with AI Focus AF with the Servo operation active, the beeper will continue beeping softly. However, the focus confirmation light in the viewfinder will not light up. Note that focus will not be locked in this case.

Canon EOS 700D Selecting AF Poin

In Basic Zone modes, the camera will normally focus the closest subject automatically. Therefore, it may not always focus your target subject.
In the <P>, <Tv>, <Av>, and <M> modes, you can select the AF point and use it to focus the target subject.
  1. Press the <AF> button. The selected AF point will be displayed on the LCD monitor and in the viewfinder.
  2. Select the AF point.
  3. Use the <navigation> key to select the AF point.
  4. While looking at the viewfinder, you can select the AF point by turning the <main dial> dial until the desired AF point lights up in red.
  5. When all the AF points light up, automatic AF point selection will be set. The AF point will be selected automatically to focus the subject.
  6. Pressing <set> toggles the AF point selection between the center AF point and automatic AF point selection.
  7. Focus the subject.
  8. Aim the selected AF point over the subject and press the shutter button halfway to focus.
Shooting Tips
  1. When shooting a portrait up close, use One-Shot AF and focus the eyes. If you focus the eyes first, you can then recompose and the face will remain sharp.
  2. If it is difficult to focus, select and use the center AF point.
  3. The center AF point is the most sensitive among the nine AF points.
  4. To make it easier to focus a moving subject, set the camera to automatic AF point selection and AI Servo AF.
  5. The center AF point will first be used to focus the subject. During autofocusing, if the subject moves away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long as the subject is covered by another AF point.

AF-Assist Beam with the Built-in Flash

Canon EOS 700D under low-light conditions, when you press the shutter button halfway, the built-in flash fires a brief burst of flashes. It illuminates the subject to enable easier autofocusing
  1. The AF-assist beam will not be fired in the following shooting modes
  2. The AF-assist beam cannot be emitted with AI Servo AF operation.
  3. The effective range of the AF-assist beam emitted by the built-in flash is approx. 4 meters/13.1 feet.
  4. In Creative Zone modes, when you raise the built-in flash with the <flash> button , the AF-assist beam will be emitted when necessary.

AF Operation and Maximum Lens Apertures

With maximum apertures up to f/5.6:
Cross-type focusing (vertical and horizontal lines detected simultaneously) is possible with all AF points. With certain lenses (see below), the off-center AF points will detect only vertical or horizontal
lines (no cross-type focusing).

With maximum apertures up to f/2.8:
High-precision AF with vertical and horizontal lines detection is possible with the center AF point, in addition to the cross-type focusing (vertical and horizontal lines detected simultaneously).
The remaining eight AF points enable cross-type focusing in the same way as when using lenses with maximum apertures up to f/5.6. Except with the EF28-80mm f/2.8-4L USM and EF50mm f/2.5 Compact Macro.

Lenses not Enabling Cross-Type Focusing with all AF Points 

The following lenses enable only horizontal-line sensitive focusing with the three AF points on the left and the three AF points on the right and only vertical-line sensitive focusing with the top and bottom AF points.
Cross-type focusing is possible only with the center AF point.
  1. EF35-80mm f/4-5.6
  2. EF35-80mm f/4-5.6 II
  3. EF35-80mm f/4-5.6 III
  4. EF35-80mm f/4-5.6 USM
  5. EF35-105mm f/4.5-5.6
  6. EF35-105mm f/4.5-5.6 USM
  7. EF80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 II
  8. EF80-200mm f/4.5-5.6 USM

Subjects Difficult to Focus

Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (viewfinder’s focus confirmation light blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:
  1. Very low-contrast subjects (Example: Blue sky, solid-color walls, etc.)
  2. Subjects in very low light
  3. Extremely backlit or reflective subjects
  4. Near and far subjects covered by an AF point (Example: Animal in a cage, etc.)
  5. Repetitive patterns (Example: Skyscraper windows, computer keyboards, etc.)
In such cases, do either of the following:
  1. With One-Shot AF, focus an object at the same distance as the subject and lock the focus before recomposing.
  2. Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually
