Preliminary Notes and Legal Information
• Take and review some test shots initially to make sure the
images were recorded correctly. Please note that Canon Inc., its
subsidiaries and affiliates, and its distributors are not liable for
any consequential damages arising from any malfunction of a
camera or accessory, including memory cards, that result in the
failure of an image to be recorded or to be recorded in a way
that is machine readable.
• Images recorded by the camera are intended for personal use.
Refrain from unauthorized recording that infringes on copyright
law, and note that even for personal use, photography may
contravene copyright or other legal rights at some performances
or exhibitions, or in some commercial settings.
• The camera warranty is valid only in the area of purchase. In
case of camera problems while abroad, return to the area of
purchase before contacting a Canon Customer Support Help

• Although the LCD monitor is produced under extremely highprecision manufacturing conditions and more than 99.99% of
the pixels meet design specifications, in rare cases some pixels
may be defective or may appear as red or black dots. This does
not indicate camera damage or affect recorded images.
• The LCD monitor may be covered with a thin plastic film for
protection against scratches during shipment. If covered,
remove the film before using the camera.
• When the camera is used over an extended period, it may
become warm. This does not indicate damage.

Security Precautions
196
Because Wi-Fi uses radio waves to transmit signals, security
precautions more stringent than when using a LAN cable are
required.
Keep the following points in mind when using Wi-Fi.
• Only use networks you are authorized to use.
This product searches for Wi-Fi networks in the vicinity and
displays the results on the screen. Networks you are not
authorized to use (unknown networks) may also be displayed.
However, attempting to connect to or using such networks
could be regarded as unauthorized access. Be sure to use
only networks you are authorized to use, and do not attempt to
connect to other unknown networks.
If security settings have not been properly set, the following
problems may occur.
• Transmission monitoring
Third parties with malicious intent may monitor Wi-Fi
transmissions and attempt to acquire the data you are sending.
• Unauthorized network access
Third parties with malicious intent may gain unauthorized
access to the network you are using to steal, modify, or destroy
information. Additionally, you could fall victim to other types of
unauthorized access such as impersonation (where someone
assumes an identity to gain access to unauthorized information)
or springboard attacks (where someone gains unauthorized
access to your network as a springboard to cover their tracks
when infiltrating other systems).
To prevent these types of problems from occurring, be sure to
thoroughly secure your Wi-Fi network.
