Number of Possible Shots with Live View Shooting
(Approx. number of shots)
The figures above are based on a fully-charged Battery Pack LP-E17 and CIPA
(Camera & Imaging Products Association) testing standards.
With a fully-charged Battery Pack LP-E17, continuous Live View shooting is
possible for approx. 1 hr. 30 min. at room temperature (23°C / 73°F).

In the <x> mode, Live View shooting is not possible.
In the <F> and <G> modes, the shooting range will be smaller.
When the flash is recycling, “BUSY” is displayed on the LCD monitor,
and you cannot view the subject.
Do not point the camera toward an intense light source, such as the sun
or an intense artificial light source. Doing so may damage the image
sensor or the camera’s internal components.
General Live View Shooting Cautions are on pages 230-231.
When flash is used, there will be two shutter sounds, but only one shot will
be taken. Also, the time it takes to capture an image after you press the
shutter button completely will be slightly longer than with viewfinder shooting.
If the camera is not operated for a prolonged period, the power will turn
off automatically after the time set in [52: Auto power off] (p.273). If
[52: Auto power off] is set to [Disable], Live View shooting will end
automatically after 30 min. (camera power remains on).
With the HDMI cable HTC-100 (sold separately) or stereo AV cable AVC-
DC400ST (sold separately), you can display the Live View image on a
TV set (p.312, 315).
