|The Canon EOS 30 is a fantastic 35mm slr that contained all of the features I wanted and desired it has multi segment metering. My first SLR was a 300v which I bought as a pckage and whilst this was enough to get me hooked on photography I grew beyond it quite quickly.|

Focusing On an Off-Center Subject
To focus on a subject not covered by one of the three focusing points, follow the procedure below. This technique is called Focus Lock. Focus lock is valid when the AF mode is set to One-shot AF.
Select a focusing point.
q Place the focusing point over the subject and press the shutter button down halfway.
Hold the shutter button down halfway and recompose the picture. Take the picture.
You can also use the Focus lock function in the Easy Shooting zone (except for mode), starting from step 2.
For best results, use the combination of One-shot AF with AE lock applied on the focusing point where focus is achieved, and evaluative metering.
Problem Subjects for Autofocusing
The EOS D30 has a precision AF system that can focus on most subjects. However, it may not be able to focus on subjects (in-focus indicator q blinks) in particular conditions such as the following: Difficult-to-Focus Subjects q Very low-contrast subjects, such as a blue sky or single-color wall q Subjects in very dark locations q Extremely backlit or reflective subjects, such as a shiny new car q Overlapping nearby and distant objects, such as cage bars and the animal inside the cage In such cases, use one of the following procedures: (1) Focus on an object that is at the same distance as the desired subject, apply Focus Lock, then recompose the picture. (2) Set the lens focus mode switch to MF (or M on older lenses), and focus manually.
Set the lens focus mode switch to MF (or M on older lenses).
The icon appears on the LCD panel.
q Turn the manual focusing ring on the lens until the subject appears sharp in the viewfinder.
If you press and hold the shutter button down halfway as you focus manually, you will see the focusing point where the subject is focused, and the in-focus indicator q will light.

q Make sure the in-focus indicator q and the exposure setting are displayed.
q Press the shutter button down fully. The beep sounds as the red-eye reduction lamp operates, and the picture is taken after 10 seconds. First 8 seconds: Slow beeps and the lamp blinks slowly. Last 2 seconds: Faster beeps and the lamp stays on. While the self-timer is operating, the LCD panel shows the number of seconds remaining until the picture is taken. q To cancel the self-timer, press the DRIVE button.
Do not stand in front of the camera when you press the shutter button to start the self-timer. Doing so prevents the camera from focusing on the subject. q You can set the beep that indicates the subject is in focus and the beep that indicates the self-timer is operating to On or Off. (120) q When using the self-timer to photograph only yourself, lock the focus (62) on an object at about the same distance as where you will be. q You can use the Remote Switch RS-80N3 (sold separately) or Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 (sold separately) to take a picture when you are away from the camera.
Using the Eyepiece Cover
If you take a picture using the self-timer or remote switch (sold separately) without looking through the viewfinder, stray light can enter the eyepiece and affect the exposure. To prevent this, attach the eyepiece cover to the viewfinder eyepiece before taking the picture.
Remove the eyecup.
q Grasp both sides of the eyecup and lift it up and away from the camera.
Slip the eyepiece cover over the eyepiece.
q The eyepiece cover is attached to the camera strap.
In a bulb exposure, the shutter remains open as long as you hold the shutter button down, and closes when you release it. Bulb exposures are useful for the long exposures required for night scenes, fireworks, etc.
Set the shutter speed to [
q Look at the LCD panel and turn the dial to select [ ]. q The next setting after [ ] is [ ].
q Press and hold the shutter button down fully. During the bulb exposure, the elapsed exposure time is displayed on the LCD panel (1 to 999 seconds). q Exposure continues as long as you hold down the shutter button.
q The elapsed exposure time displayed on the LCD panel is only counted up to 999 seconds. For accurate exposure time, check the information display for the exposed image. (104) q Long exposures exceeding 1 second result in increased noise introduced into the image, and reduce the quality of the image. The Remote Switch RS-80N3 (sold separately), or Timer Remote Controller TC-80N3 (sold separately) can be used to eliminate the need to hold down the shutter button.
Using the Built-in Flash in the Creative Zone
In the Creative zone, you can take flash pictures by simply pressing the < > button to pop up the built-in flash at any time, regardless of lighting conditions. : Select mode for full autoflash. The shutter speed and aperture value are determined automatically, just as in (Full Auto) mode.
: Select mode to manually set a shutter speed slower than 1/200 second. The camera then automatically sets the flash aperture value to provide the proper exposure for your shutter speed. : Select mode to manually set the aperture value. In low-light conditions against a background such as a night sky, you can use automatic slow-sync settings to properly expose the main subject and the background. The main subject is captured by the flash, and the background is captured by time exposure using a slow shutter speed. q Because automatic slow-sync photography uses a slow shutter speed, always use a tripod. : Select mode to set the shutter speed and the aperture value manually. The main subject is exposed properly by the flash. The background exposure varies according to the shutter speed and aperture settings. : The effect is the same as using flash in mode.
Built-in Flash Range
(using EF24-85mm F3.5-4.5 USM lens) ISO Speed 1600 Wide-angle: 24 mm Approx. 1-3.4 m (3.3-11.2 ft) Approx. 1-4.8 m (3.3-15.7 ft) Approx. 1-6.8 m (3.3-22.3 ft) Approx. 1-9.6 m (3.3-31.5 ft) Approx. 1-13.7 m (3.3-44.9 ft) Telephoto: 85 mm Approx. 1-2.6 m (3.3-8.5 ft) Approx. 1-3.7 m (3.3-12.1 ft) Approx. 1-5.3 m (3.3-17.4 ft) Approx. 1-7.5 m (3.3-24.6 ft) Approx. 1-10.6 m (3.3-34.8 ft)
Flash Sync Shutter Speed and Aperture Settings
Mode Sync shutter speed Automatically set from 1/200 to 1/60 second. Manually set to speeds slower than 1/200 second. Automatically set (1/200 to 30 sec.) for the metered brightness, according to the aperture value. Manually set to speeds slower than 1/200 second. Aperture Value Automatically set by the E-TTL program. Automatically set for the metered brightness, according to the shutter speed setting.
4 Flash Photography
Manually set as desired.
q When using an EX-series Speedlite (96), press the built-in flash back into the camera before mounting the external flash. q When using the built-in flash, keep at least 1 m/3.3 ft away from the subject. Otherwise the lens barrel may partially obstruct the flash and cause part of the photo to look dark. q When using the built-in flash, detach any hood from the lens to keep it from obstructing flash coverage. q Using the built-in flash with any of the following lenses can partially obstruct the flash coverage. Instead, use an EOS-dedicated external flash. Large-aperture lenses, including the EF17-35mm F2.8L USM, EF28-70mm F2.8L USM. Super-telephoto lenses, including the EF300mm F2.8L IS USM and EF600mm F4L IS USM. q The built-in flash can cover the picture area for lenses with focal lengths as short as 18 mm. If you use a lens shorter than 18 mm, the photo will be dark around the edges. q q q q The E in E-TTL stands for Evaluative. To retract the built-in flash, press it back down into the camera. You cannot use the built-in flash to set high-speed sync (FP flash). In or mode, if you set the shutter speed faster than 1/200 second, the camera will automatically reset it to 1/200 unless the EX-series Speedlite has been set for high-speed sync. q AF flash exposure is always based on the aperture value at the time the shot is taken, and controlled by E-TTL automatic flash compensation linked to the active focusing point and weighted for the main subject. q The built-in flash and external flash cannot be used at the same time. q For subjects that are difficult to focus, the AF-assist light (43) automatically projects a beam of light at the subject.
You can set the Shutter curtain sync to 2nd-curtain sync. (C.Fn-8-1126)
When you use flash in low-light conditions, it can reflect off your subjects pupils and make their eyes look red in the photograph. This effect is called red-eye, and is caused by the light of the flash reflecting off the retina of the eye. The Red-eye reduction function uses the cameras redeye reduction lamp, which gently shines into the subjects eyes to constrict the pupils and thereby reduces the likelihood that red-eye will occur. You can use red-eye reduction in any picture-taking mode except and modes.
From the menu, select [Red-eye on/off].
q Press the MENU button. q Turn the dial to select [Red-eye on/off], then press the button.
Set the Red-eye reduction function.
q Turn the press the dial to select [On], then button.
The red-eye reduction function is turned On, and the display returns to the Menu. q Press the MENU button to clear the screen and exit the menu.
q When you press the shutter button down halfway, the redeye reduction lamp indicator appears in the viewfinder. q Red-eye reduction is effective only when the subject is looking at the red-eye reduction lamp. Be sure to tell your subjects to look at the lamp. q To increase the effectiveness of red-eye reduction, press the shutter button down fully approximately 1.5 seconds after the red-eye reduction lamp indicator goes off. q You can take a picture anytime by pressing the shutter button down fully, even if the red-eye reduction lamp is on. q Red-eye reduction also operates when you use an EOSdedicated Speedlite. q The effectiveness of red-eye reduction varies from subject to subject.
Red-eye reduction lamp indicator
Red-eye reduction is more effective in bright interior locations, with the camera close to the subject.
FE (flash exposure) Lock obtains and locks the correct flash exposure reading for any part of a subject. FE Lock is a function in the Creative zone.
High-Speed Sync (FP Flash)
When the 550EX Speedlite is set to high-speed sync mode, it can automatically synchronize at any shutter speed of 1/200 second or faster, thus providing high-speed sync (FP) flash operation. When high-speed sync is On, the icon appears in the viewfinder. High-speed sync is effective for portrait photography in the following situations: (1) When you want to use daylight sync flash for a portrait, and widen the aperture (reduce the aperture value) to blur the background. (2) When you want to produce a catchlight in the subjects eyes. (3) When you want to use fill flash to eliminate shadows.
FEB (Flash Exposure Bracketing)
With the 550EX Speedlite, FEB (flash exposure bracketing) automatically shoots three flash shots, bracketing the exposure by as much as 3 stops in 1/2-stop increments, without changing the background exposure. q FEB is applied from the 550EX Speedlite. For details, see the Users Guide for your Speedlite. q For best results use (single-image shooting) drive mode. (67) You can set the camera to change FEB settings in 1/3-stop increments. (C.Fn-4 124)
Taking FE Lock pictures with the 550EX Speedlite is the same as described in FE Lock (94) for the built-in flash. In step 1, be sure the 550EX Speedlite pilot lamp is on. The flash mode may be either normal flash or high-speed sync. The FE lock operates with either mode.
For flash pictures with flash exposure compensation, see Flash Exposure Compensation for the built-in flash. (95)
Modeling flash allows you to see shadows, light balance, and other effects produced by multilight settings.
Check that the camera and Speedlite are properly set for flash photography. Press the camera s depth-of-field preview button.
q The Speedlite fires at 70Hz for approximately one second.
Wireless Multi-Light/E-TTL Autoflash Photography
The 550EX Speedlite can be operated as a slave light from a master (550EX or ST-E2) for easy wireless multi-light/E-TTL autoflash photography. The slave 550EX is placed to supplement the master flash, which provides the primary flash for the subject. q This is a Type-A camera. For details, refer to the users guide for your Speedlite.
Using Non-Canon Flash Units
The EOS D30 can synchronize with compact, non-Canon flash units at shutter speeds of 1/200 second or slower. With larger studio flash units, the flash speed is 1/60 second or slower. Be sure to test the flash you are using beforehand, to make sure it synchronizes properly with the camera.
We recommend you use a flash with sync cable connected to the PC contacts. The PC terminal has a locking thread to prevent accidental disconnection. Only the X-sync terminal is used for synchronization at 1/200 second or slower.

Camera Care and Storage
The camera is a precision instrument. Do not drop it or subject it to physical shock. The camera is not waterproof and should not be used in wet conditions or underwater. If the camera gets wet, take it to your nearest Canon dealer as soon as possible. If small amounts of water splash onto the camera, wipe it with a clean dry cloth. If the camera is exposed to salty air, wipe it thoroughly with a slightly damp cloth. Do not leave the camera in places prone to excessive heat such as in a car on a sunny day. Excessive heat can cause the camera to malfunction. The camera contains precision electronic circuitry. Never attempt to disassemble the camera. Use only a blower brush to blow away any dust on the lens, eyepiece, mirror, focusing screen, film compartment, etc. Do not clean the camera body or lens with any cleaner containing an organic solvent. For stubborn dirt, consult your nearest Canon dealer. The shutter curtains are extremely thin. Use only a blower to clean them. Be careful not to blow air too forcefully on the shutter curtains. The shutter curtains can be easily deformed or damaged. Also, when loading and unloading film, be careful not to touch the shutter curtains. Do not touch the electrical contacts with your fingers. Otherwise corrosion may develop on the contacts, resulting in improper camera operation. If the camera is not to be used for an extended period, remove the batteries. Store the camera in a well-ventilated, cool, dry place. During storage, press the shutter button once in a while to release the shutter a few times. Avoid storing the camera in a laboratory, cabinet, etc., where corrosive chemicals are present. If you have not used the camera for some time or if there is an important shoot, have the camera checked by your Canon dealer beforehand, or check for yourself that the camera components are working properly.
LCD displays operate more slowly at low temperatures, and may appear dark at high temperatures. The display will return to normal at room temperature.

During film rewind, pressing the <6> button toggles between high-speed and low-speed (silent) rewind. C.Fn-01-1 can make the film rewind faster. (p.85) C.Fn-02-1 can leave out the film leader when the film rewind ends. (p.85)
By adjusting the diopter, eyeglass wearers will not need their eyeglasses to see a sharp viewfinder image. The cameras adjustable dioptric range is 2.5 to +0.5 dpt.
1 Remove the eyecup.sides at the While grasping both
bottom of the eyecup, slide it upward to remove.
2 Turn the dioptric adjustment knob.
Turn the knob left or right so that the
AF points in the viewfinder look sharp. The illustration shows the knob at the standard setting (1 dpt).
3 Reattach the eyecup.
If the dioptric adjustment knob still cannot make the viewfinder look clear, use a Dioptric Adjustment Lens Ed (10 types sold separately).
Holding the Camera
To avoid taking blurred pictures, hold the camera steady to minimize camera shake.
Firmly grasp the camera grip with your right hand, and press your both elbows lightly against your body. Hold the lens at the bottom with your left hand. Press the camera against your face and look through the viewfinder. To maintain a stable stance, place one foot in front of the other instead of lining up both feet.
The camera automatically senses whether it is in the horizontal or vertical position. The camera orientation sensor will make a small sound when you switch to vertical or horizontal shooting.
Fully Automatic Shooting
This chapter describes how to use the cameras Basic Zone modes <Y> <U> <I> <O> <P> <A> for quick and easy shooting. In these modes, all you do is point and shoot. Also, these modes override the cameras <l> <u> and AF Mode dials, film advance mode lever (except <p>), and buttons (except <0> <6> and the shutter button). This is to prevent spoiled shots caused by accidental operation of camera controls.
Turn the Mode Dial to <Y>, <U>, <I>, <O>, <P>, or <A>.
The picture-taking procedure is the same as with the <Y> Full Auto mode on page 28. The settings automatically set by the Basic Zone modes are shown in the Feature Availability Table on page 91.
n B a sic Zo
YFull Auto Mode
All you do is point the camera and press the shutter button. Everything is automatic so it is easy to photograph any subject. With seven AF points to focus the subject, you just point and shoot.
1 Turn the Mode Dial to <Y>. 2 Aim any of the AF points on the subject.
The main subject, as determined by
the camera, will be focused by one of the AF points. To focus a subject not covered by any of the AF points, see Focusing OffCenter Subjects on page 50.

If you want to zoom, do it before focusing. Turning the zooming ring after achieving focus may throw off the focus. If the built-in flashs pop-up operation is obstructed, the <r> icon will blink on the LCD panel. Press the shutter button halfway to resolve the problem. When focus is achieved, the autofocus and auto exposure setting will also be locked. If the focus confirmation light <n> blinks, the picture cannot be taken. (p.51) Out of the seven AF points, the one covering the closest subject is selected automatically to achieve focus. If multiple AF points flash in red simultaneously, it indicates that all those AF points have achieved focus. In the Basic Zone modes (except <I> <P> ), the built-in flash will pop up and fire automatically in low-light or backlit conditions. To retract the flash, push it back down.
This mode is for taking pictures of people at twilight or at night. The flash illuminates the subject while a slow sync speed obtains a natural-looking exposure of the background.
If you want to photograph only a night scene
(without people), use the <I> mode instead.
Tell the subject to keep still even after the flash
automatically sets the AF mode to <4>, the film advance mode to <J> (single-frame shooting), and the metering mode to <Z>.
A blinking shutter speed indicates that the shutter speed is too slow to prevent a blurred picture caused by camera shake. Hold the camera steady and press the shutter button smoothly, or use a tripod. (The shutter speed indicator still blinks when you use a tripod, but camera shake will not be a problem.) In the <A> mode, use a tripod to prevent camera shake.
FUsing Red-eye Reduction (with the built-in flash)
When flash is used in a low-light environment, the subjects eyes may come out red in the photograph. Red eye happens when the light from the flash reflects off the retina of the eyes. The cameras red-eye reduction feature turns on the red-eye reduction lamp to shine a gentle light into the subjects eyes to narrow the pupil diameter or iris. A smaller pupil reduces the chances of red eye from occurring. Red-eye reduction can be set in any shooting mode except <I> <P>.

When you press the shutter button halfway, the red-eye reduction lamp-on indicator will appear in viewfinder and on the LCD panel. Red-eye reduction will not work unless the Red-eye reduction subject looks at the red-eye reduction lamp. Tell lamp-on indicator the subject to look at the lamp. For maximum effectiveness, press the shutter button fully after the red-eye reduction lamp turns off (after 1.5 sec.). You can take a picture even while the red-eye reduction lamp is lit. The effectiveness of red-eye reduction varies depending on the subject. To further increase the effectiveness of red-eye reduction, go to a brighter environment or move closer to the subject.
One-Shot AF for Still Subjects
Pressing the shutter button halfway activates AF operation and achieves focus once.
AF point which achieves focus will flash briefly and the focus confirmation light in the viewfinder will light at the same time. sWith evaluative metering, the exposure setting (shutter speed and Focus confirmation light aperture value) will be set when focus is achieved. The exposure setting and focus will be locked as long as the shutter button is pressed halfway. (p.50) You can then recompose the shot while retaining the exposure setting and point of focus.
If focus has not been achieved, the focus confirmation light <n> in the viewfinder will blink. In this case, you cannot take a picture even when you press the shutter button fully. Recompose the shot and try and focus again. Also see When Autofocus Fails (p.51).
AI Servo AF for Moving Subjects
While you press the shutter button halfway, the camera focuses continuously
This AF mode suits moving subjects
when the focusing distance keeps changing. sWith predictive AF, the camera can also focus track a subject which steadily approaches or retreats from the camera. sThe exposure settings are set immediately before the picture is taken.
When focus is achieved, the focus confirmation light <n> in the viewfinder will not light and the beeper will not sound. If the focus confirmation light <n> in the viewfinder blinks, it means focus has not been achieved. Focus lock cannot be used.
If the subject approaches or retreats from the camera at a constant rate, the camera tracks the subject and predicts the focusing distance immediately before the picture is taken. This is for obtaining correct focus at the moment of exposure. When the AF point selection is automatic, the camera first uses the center AF point to focus. If the subject moves away from the center AF point, focus tracking continues as long as the subject is covered by another AF point. The active AF point will not flash in red. With a manually selected AF point, the selected AF point is used for predictive AF. In the Eye Control mode, Eye Control Servo AF (p.49) will be used. As long as one of the AF points cover the moving subject, predictive AF will continue to track the subject as you follow it with your eye.
With C.Fn-04-2, holding down the <w> button will temporarily stop the AF operation in the AI Servo AF mode. (p.85)
AI Focus AF for Automatic AF Mode Switching
The AI Focus AF mode switches automatically from One-Shot AF to AI Servo AF if the subject starts to move. If focus is achieved in the One-Shot AF mode and the subject starts to move continuously, the camera will detect the movement and switch automatically to AI Servo AF to focus track the subject.
3Selecting an AF Point
The AF point is used for focusing. The AF point can be selected automatically by the camera or manually by you. In the Basic Zone modes and <Q> mode, the AF point selection is automatic only. In the <S> <R> <E> <W> modes, the AF point can be selected either automatically or manually.

If the camera does not detect your eye movement properly during the calibration, the beeper will sound and the CAL No. will blink on the LCD panel. In such a case, press the shutter button and start from step 3. If you do the calibration procedure only for the horizontal orientation, Eye Control during vertical picture-taking might not be so accurate. Be sure to also complete the calibration procedure for the vertical orientation. If you interrupt the calibration procedure, wait until the AF point in the viewfinder stops blinking, then start over from step 3. If the calibration does not go well, see Eye Control Calibration Operation Tips (p.46). If the beeper setting (p.74) is set to W, the beeper will not sound.

Eye Control Servo AF
When you use Eye Control in the AI Servo AF mode (or AI Focus AF set to AI Servo AF), you can focus a moving subject continuously just by looking at it. This is called Eye Control Servo AF. If the subject focused with Eye Control starts to move, you can continue to focus-track the subject with your eye by looking at the next AF point covering the subject while holding down the shutter button halfway.
Turning Off Eye Control
Turn the Eye Control switch to <2>. The AF point can then be selected automatically or manually.
Focusing Off-Center Subjects
After achieving focus, you can lock the focus on a subject and recompose the shot. This is called focus lock. Focus lock works when the AF mode is set to One Shot AF.

Focus lock also works in the Basic Zone modes (except <P>). Just start from step 3 above.
When Autofocus Fails (Manual Focusing)
Autofocus can fail to achieve focus (the focus confirmation light <n> blinks) with certain subjects such as the following:
Difficult Subjects for Autofocusing
Low-contrast subjects. Example: Blue sky, flat surface with a solid color. Subjects in very low light. Extremely backlit or reflective subjects. Example: Automobile with a strong reflection. Overlapping near and far objects. Example: Animal behind bars in a cage. In such cases, do one of the following: (1)Focus lock an object at the same distance as the subject and recompose. (2)Set the lens focus mode switch to <MF> and focus manually.
: 1 stop AEB with over 2-stop exposure compensation.
AE lock enables you to lock the exposure at a different spot from the point of focus. After locking the exposure, you can recompose the shot while maintaining the desired exposure level. This feature is useful for backlit and spotlighted subjects.

In the One-Shot AF and AI Focus AF modes (except AI SERVO AF), AE lock will take effect while you press the shutter button halfway to focus. AE lock works differently depending on the selected AF point and metering mode. For details, see AE Lock Effects (p.92). C.Fn-04-1 enables you to apply AE lock by pressing the shutter button halfway and focus by pressing the <j> button. (p.85)

During multiple-exposure shooting, the <7> arrow next to the <4> icon on the LCD panel will blink. To cancel multiple exposures before shooting, set the number of multiple exposures to E. To cancel multiple exposures after shooting, follow steps 1 and 2 to set the number of multiple exposures to blank. Since the same frame is exposed multiple times, exposure compensation should be set to a negative value for each shot.

Certain types of fluorescent light may cause camera misoperation. During wireless remote control, try to keep the camera away from fluorescent light. You can also use Remote Controller RC-5 (sold separately). If you set the film advance mode lever to <p> and do nothing for four minutes, the wireless remote control mode will be canceled automatically to save battery power.
Using the Remote Switch
Connect the Remote Switch RS60E3s (sold separately) plug to the cameras remote control terminal. To take a picture, press the Remote Switchs shutter-release button.
With the built-in flash or EOSdedicated Speedlite, you can easily take flash pictures in the same way as normal AE shooting. In the Basic Zone modes (except <I> <P>), the built-in flash is fully automatic. In Creative Zone modes, it can be used at any time.
Using the Built-in Flash
In a Basic Zone Mode
In low-light or backlit conditions, the built-in flash will pop up and fire automatically (except in <I> <P> modes).
In a Creative Zone Mode
Just pop-up the built-in flash to fire the flash regardless of the ambient light level. S : Use this mode for automatic flash photography. The flash sync speed (within 1/60 sec. - 1/125 sec) and aperture value will be set automatically as with the <Y> (Full Auto) mode.
R : Use this mode if you want to set the flash sync speed manually (within 30 sec. - 1/125 sec.). The camera will set the flash aperture value automatically to obtain a correct flash exposure. E : Use this mode if you want to set the flash aperture value. The camera will set the flash sync speed (within 30 sec. 1/125 sec.) automatically to obtain the best exposure for the aperture you set. For portraits with a night scene or dark background, a slow sync speed will be set to obtain a proper exposure for both the subject and background. The flash illuminates the subject, while the background is properly exposed with a slow shutter speed. Because automatic slow-sync shooting uses a slow shutter speed, always use a tripod. W : Enables you to manually set the shutter speed (30 sec. 1/125 sec. or bulb) and aperture. The subject is properly exposed with the flash and the background is exposed with the flash sync speed and aperture value you have set.

Program Line Description
The bottom horizontal axis represents the shutter speed and the right vertical axis represents the aperture value. On the left edge and top edge of the graph, the Exposure Value (EV) is indicated for the respective shutter speed and aperture value combination set by the Program AE mode and denoted by the program line. Example: When the 105mm focal length is used and the subject brightness is EV 12, the point where the diagonal line from EV 12 (on the top edge of the graph) intersects the program line indicates the corresponding shutter speed (1/125 sec.) and aperture value (f/5.6) which the program sets automatically. The arrowhead lines above the graph indicate the metering range for the respective film speed.
