Canon : Product Manual : EOS R6 : Print Ordering (DPOF)


Print Ordering (DPOF)

DPOF (Digital Print Order Format) enables you to print images recorded on the card according to your printing instructions such as the image selection, quantity to print, etc. You can print multiple images in one batch or create a print order for a photofinisher.

You can set the print settings such as print type, date imprinting, file number imprinting, etc. The print settings will be applied to all the images specified for printing. (They cannot be set individually for each image.)

Setting Print Options

  1. Select [Playback: Print order].

  2. Select [Set up].

  3. Set the options as desired.

    • Set [Print type], [Date], and [File No.] options.
    Print type Standard Standard Prints one image on one sheet.
    Index Index Multiple thumbnail images are printed on one sheet.



    Both Prints both the standard and index prints.
    Date On [On] imprints the recorded date of the captured image.
    File No. On [On] imprints the file number.
  4. Exit the setting.

    • Press the MENU button.
    • Next, select [Sel.Image] or [Multiple] to specify the images to be printed.


  • If you print an image with a large image size using the [Index] or [Both] setting (), the index print may not be printed with certain printers. In this case, resize the image (), then print the index print.
  • Even if [Date] and [File No.] are set to [On], the date or file number may not be imprinted, depending on the print type setting and printer.
  • With [Index] prints, the [Date] and [File No.] cannot both be set to [On] at the same time.
  • When printing with DPOF, use the card for which print order specifications are set. You cannot print in the specified print order if you extract just the images from the card for printing.
  • Certain DPOF-compliant printers and photofinishers may not be able to print the images as you specified. When using a printer, refer to the printer's instruction manual. When requesting service from a photofinisher, ask in advance.
  • Do not use this camera to configure print settings for images with DPOF settings set up on another camera. All the print orders may be overwritten inadvertently. Also, the print order may not be possible, depending on the image type.
