1 Insert the battery Without power your D-SLR is useless. So step one in getting started is to insert a fully charged battery. Your Canon D-SLR comes provided with a Lithium-ion battery and charger. When the light stops flashing, your battery is charged. A spare battery can come in handy. If you want a backup, check the battery type. Find the code written on the battery body, starting with the letters, LP. 2 Get the right memory card Next we need to insert the correct memory card. Canon D-SLRs take either an SD-type card (SD, SDHC, SDXC) or a CompactFlash card. Some models, such as the 5D Mk III, take both. CompactFlash cards are bigger than SD cards.

01 LENS RELEASE To remove the lens press this button and twist the lens in an anti-clockwise direction.

Some DSLRs, such as this 700D, include a Vari-Angle LCD screen for creative framing. 10 BACK PANEL CONTROLS The back panel multi-controller is the handy feature you use to alter settings and navigate through the menus.
