Introduction

The Canon EOS D30 is a high-quality, high-precision, digital single-lens reflex camera with a
CMOS sensor that has a total pixel count of 3.25 million pixels.
This camera provides a full range of imaging options and functions ideal for every
photographic use, from easy, fully automatic shots for first-time users to applications for
experienced photographers.
A CompactFlash card* (CF card Type

1, 2) is used as the recording media.

Before you use your EOS D30, be sure to read this user’s guide with your camera on hand.
This will help you become more familiar with your camera, and learn how to operate it properly.

* We strongly recommend that you use a Canon CF card.

Test Shots and Warranty of Photographic Images

Before taking important pictures, we would strongly recommend that you first shoot several trial
images to make sure you are operating the camera correctly. Please note that the manufacturer
is not liable for any consequential damages arising from any malfunction of the EOS D30
camera or recording media (CF card) that results in the failure of an image to be recorded or
transferred to a computer.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS...

Introduction

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

• Before using the camera, please ensure that you have read and understood the safety

precautions described below. Always ensure that the camera is operated correctly.

• The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended to instruct you in the

safe and correct operation of the camera and its accessories to prevent injuries or
damage to yourself, other persons and equipment.

• In the next few pages, the term “equipment” refers primarily to the camera and its power

supply accessories.

WARNINGS

• Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or at other intense light sources that could

injure your eyesight.

• Do not trigger the flash in close proximity to human or animal eyes. Exposure to the

intense light produced by the flash may injure eyesight. In particular, remain at least one
meter (39 inches) away from infants when using the flash.

• Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants. Accidental damage to the

camera or batteries by a child could result in serious injury. In addition, placement of the
wrist strap around a child’s neck could result in asphyxiation.

• Be particularly careful to keep the button batteries (CR2025 lithium) used in the camera

out of the reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a
battery.

• Do not attempt to disassemble or alter any part of the equipment that is not expressly

described in this guide. Disassembly or alteration may result in high-voltage electrical
shock. Internal inspections, alterations and repairs should be conducted by qualified service
personnel authorized by your camera distributor or a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.

• To avoid the risk of high-voltage electrical shock, do not touch the flash portion of the

camera if it has been damaged. Similarly, never touch internal portions of the equipment
that become exposed as a result of damage. There is a risk of high-voltage electrical
shock. Please take the first opportunity to consult your camera distributor or a Canon
Customer Support Help Desk.

• Stop operating the equipment immediately if it should emit smoke or noxious fumes.

Failure to do so may result in fire or electrical shock. Set the camera’s main switch to the
Off position and remove the camera battery or unplug the power cord from the electrical
outlet immediately. Confirm that smoke or fume emissions cease. Please consult your
camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.

• Stop operating the equipment if it is dropped or the casing is damaged. Failure to do so

may result in fire or electrical shock. Set the camera’s main switch to the Off position and
remove the camera battery or unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet immediately.
Please consult your camera distributor of the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.

• Prevent the equipment from contact with, or immersion in, water and other liquids. Do not

allow liquids to enter the interior. The camera has not been waterproofed. If the exterior
comes into contact with liquids or salt air, wipe it dry with a soft, absorbent cloth. In the
event that water or other foreign substances enter the interior, immediately set the
camera’s main switch to the Off position and remove the camera battery or unplug the
power cord from the electrical outlet immediately. Continued use of the equipment may
result in fire or electrical shock. Please consult your camera distributor or the closest
Canon Customer Support Help Desk.

SAFETY PRECAUTIONS...

Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzene, thinners...

Page 10

• Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzene, thinners or other flammable

substances to clean or maintain the equipment. The use of these substances may lead to
fire.

• Do not cut, damage, alter or place heavy items on the power adapter cord. Any of these

actions may cause an electrical short circuit, which may lead to fire or electrical shock.
Replace a broken or damaged power adapter cord.

• Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet. Handling it with wet hands may lead

to electrical shock. When unplugging the cord, ensure that you hold the rigid portion of
the plug. Pulling the flexible portion of the cord may damage or expose the wire and
insulation, creating the potential for fires or electrical shocks.

• Use of power sources not expressly recommended for this equipment may lead to

overheating, distortion of the equipment, fire, electrical shock or other hazards. Use only
the recommended power accessories.

• Power down the computer and unplug the power cord before attempting to connect the

interface cable, to avoid the risk of electrical shock.

• Do not place the batteries near a heat source or expose them to direct flame or heat.

Neither should you immerse them in water. Such exposure may damage the batteries and
lead to the leakage of corrosive liquids, fire, electrical shock, explosion or serious injury.

• Do not attempt to disassemble, alter, or apply heat to the batteries. There is serious risk

of injury due to an explosion. Immediately flush with water any area of the body, including
the eyes and mouth, or clothing, that comes into contact with the inner contents of a
battery. If the eyes or mouth contact these substances, immediately flush with water and
seek medical assistance.

• Avoid dropping or subjecting the batteries to severe impacts that could damage the

casings. This could lead to leakage and injury.

• Do not short-circuit the battery terminals with metallic objects, such as key holders. This

could lead to overheating, burns and other injuries. Use the supplied battery case to
transport or store the battery pack.

• Before you discard a battery, cover the terminals with tape or other insulators to prevent

direct contact with other objects. Contact with the metallic components of other materials
in waste containers may lead to fire or explosions. Discard batteries in specialized waste
facilities if available in your area.

• Use of batteries not expressly recommended for this equipment may cause explosions or

leaks, resulting in fire, injury and damage to the surroundings. Use only recommended
batteries and accessories.

• Use only the recommended compact power adapter to charge the Battery Pack BP-511

rechargeable batteries. Use of chargers not expressly recommended may result in
overheating, distortion, fire or electrical shock.

• Disconnect the compact power adapter from both the camera and electrical outlet after

recharging and when the camera is not in use to avoid fires and other hazards.

• The camera terminal of the compact power cord is designed for exclusive use with the

EOS D30. Do not use it with other products or batteries. There is a risk of fire and other
hazards.

Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzene, thinners...
