Canon Peripheral Illumination Correction

You might have come across some images that you have shot using your Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel T6 that have dark edges unlike the center of the frame, even if the frame was captured in a uniform lighting condition.

Well, then you are not alone who face such scenarios.

Light fall-off and Vignetting Condition

Countless Canon vlogging camera users have faced the same or similar conditions and looking for ways to adjust Canon peripheral illumination correction.

The confusion arises due to the multiple terms being used to define this lighting issue on peripheral illumination.

The most common names among the users that are associated with this condition of the frame are known as the light fall-off condition and the vignetting condition.

The amount of vignetting that will appear on your frame is dependent on a few circumstances such as the focal length of the lens as well as the aperture setting of your Canon flip screen DSLR.

To minimize vignetting in your Canon EOS Rebel, there is the Peripheral Illumination condition on your camera which will adjust the brightness of the image around the edges of your frame.

The most noticeable part of a light fall-off in a frame can be noticed on the top of the frame. It is equally visible in all four corners, but the two corners are the most visible part.

Even if most people won’t notice the vignetting in your frame, but to capture the right shot, you need to make sure that you have set every setting in your camera right.

And if your settings are altered incorrectly, your image may suffer from high light-fall-off conditions.

So, to help you better, we have described the settings of the Canon flip screen DSLR EOS Rebel that will help you to get rid of the light fall-off.

Adjusting Canon Peripheral Illumination Correction

Note: The below settings are available in all the exposure modes of your camera, but a few factors that will affect the settings are:

The image format

It is essential to note that the correction can only be made if the image is captured in JPEG mode. If the image is captured in any other mode, then the correction can be made only through the Canon Digital Photo Professional.

The data must be included in the firmware

To correct, the data of your lens must be unloaded into the firmware of the Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel T61300D.

You can know if the lens you are using is supported by the Canon EOS Rebel by going to the Shooting Menu 1 and then selecting Canon peripheral illumination correction.

Then, you will need to press Set. And then, if the screen displays the correction data, the feature will be enabled automatically.

And if your lens isn’t supported, then you will need to add the information of the lens to your Canon vlogging camera EOS Rebel T61300D’s firmware manually.

This can be done by connecting your camera with the computer using a USB cable and then using the tools which are available with the Canon EOS Utility software.

And in the event you are shooting using a Non-Canon lens, then you will need to disable the Canon peripheral illumination correction even if the correction data is available. But, if you still want to apply the correction, it can be done while shooting in RAW format.
