5. Setting the Exposure
When taking photographs using TTL metering, no exposure
compensation is necessary to meter the light coming through the lens.
With TTL metering, AE (autoexposure) is possible at all focusing
distances. Just set the desired picture-taking mode, then check the
shutter speed and aperture before taking the picture.
When you use a handheld exposure meter to set the exposure, you must
take into account the exposure factor shown in the following table.

• The correct exposure for a close-up shot largely depends on the
subject. Therefore, it is recommended to take several shots of the
same subject at different exposures.
• When taking close-up shots, it is recommended to use aperture-
priority AE (Av) or Manual (M) picture-taking modes, because depth o\
field and exposure are easy to adjust in those modes.
6. Depth-of-Field ScaleThe depth of field is the distance in front of and behind the plane of f\
on the subject that appears sharp. The depth of field is indicated by th\
area between the depth-of-field scale lines below the distance scale.
The numbers on the scale are F values (with the EF50mm f/2.5 Compact
• The depth-of-field scale is an approximate indicator.
7. Infrared Index (EF50mm f/2.5 Compact macro only)The infrared index corrects the focus setting when using monochrome
infrared film. Focus on the subject in MF, then adjust the distance sett\
by moving the focusing ring to the corresponding infrared index mark
❻-Ⓐ, Ⓑ.• Some EOS cameras cannot use infrared film. See the instructions for
your EOS camera.
8. FiltersYou can attach filters to the filter mounting thread on the front of the\
lens❼.• Only one filter may be attached.
• Use a polarizing Canon filter (52 mm).
