Canon A3300 IS 5033B012 User Manual (en)

Features for everyone
& Tips
High Dynamic Range (HDR) 
In higher contrast situations, 
conventional cameras aren’t able to 
capture both dark shadows and bright 
highlights at the same time. High 
Dynamic Range mode captures these 
by taking multiple exposures of the 
same scene before combining them 
back into one image in the camera. 
This allows the camera to capture the 
highlights, shadows, and everything 
in between, closer to how the 
photographer sees it.
Hints & Tips
Helping you to quickly get to grips with 
your new camera and saving you time 
spent reading the manual, Hints & Tips 
provide quick explanations of most 
menus and functions with their benefits.
Easy Mode 
Easy mode provides the simplest 
point and shoot mode for beginners. 
In Easy mode, Smart Auto is active, 
selecting the optimum settings for 
best results across a wide range of 
shooting scenes. Shooting information 
displayed on the screen is minimised 
so the user can concentrate on 
picture-taking, while most of the 
function buttons are disabled to 
prevent accidental changes to settings.
High-speed Shooting
Capture the perfect moment  
with high-speed shooting. Cameras 
equipped with CMOS sensors can 
shoot continuously as many pictures 
as the card can store, with speeds  
up to 8.8 shots per second, using  
the High-speed Burst mode*. 
Meanwhile cameras with a DIGIC 5 
processor offer full resolution 
high-speed shooting at up to 10.3 
shots per second for 8 shots, using 
the High-speed Burst HQ mode.
*  High-speed Burst mode  
outputs at reduced resolution.
Handheld Night Scene 
With this mode it is possible to take 
nightscape photos without having to 
mount the camera on a tripod. In 
Handheld Night Scene, the camera 
will take a high speed sequence of 
shots and then combine them into a 
single image with the least possible 
blur and the best possible exposure.
Live View Control
Live View Control allows beginners to 
easily adjust the look and feel of their 
photos by controlling three types of 
picture settings – brightness, colour 
and tone. These simple terms can be 
easily understood and the effects 
appear instantly on the LCD monitor, 
allowing users to confirm in real time 
how their settings will look before the 
shot is taken.
