Please Read
Test Shots
Before you try to photograph important subjects, we highly recommend that you
shoot several trial images to confirm that the camera is operating and being
operated correctly. Please note that Canon, its subsidiaries and affiliates, and its
distributors are not liable for any consequential damages arising from any
malfunction of a camera or accessory, including CompactFlash™ cards, that results in
the failure of an image to be recorded or to be recorded in a format that is machine
sensible.
Warning Against Copyright Infringement
Please note that Canon digital cameras are intended for personal use and should
never be used in a manner that infringes upon or contravenes international or
domestic copyright laws and regulations. Please be advised that in certain cases the
copying of images from performances, exhibitions, or commercial properties by
means of a camera or other device may contravene copyright or other legal rights
even if the image was shot for personal use.
Warranty Limitations
This camera’s warranty is only effective in the country of sale. If a problem arises
while the camera is in use abroad, please convey it back to the country of sale before
proceeding with a warranty claim to a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
For Canon Customer Support contacts, please see the Canon Limited
Warranty supplied with your camera.
Safety Precautions
• Before using the camera, please ensure that you read and understand the safety
precautions described below. Always ensure that the camera is operated correctly.
• The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended to instruct you in
the safe and correct operation of the camera and its accessories to prevent injuries or
damage to yourself, other persons and equipment.
• In the next few pages, the term “equipment” refers primarily to the camera, its
power supply accessories and an optional compact power adapter.
Warnings
• Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or at other intense light sources
which could damage your eyesight.
• Do not trigger the flash in close proximity to human or animal eyes. Exposure
to the intense light produced by the flash may damage eyesight. In particular, remain
at least one meter (39 inches) away from infants when using the flash.
4
• Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants. Accidental
damage to the camera or batteries by a child could result in serious injury. In addition,
placement of the strap around the child’s neck could result in asphyxiation.
• Be particularly careful to keep the date battery used in the camera away
from children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child swallows a battery.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or alter any part of the equipment that is not
expressly described in this guide. Disassembly or alteration may result in highvoltage electrical shock. Internal inspections, alterations and repairs should be
conducted by qualified service personnel authorized by your camera distributor or a
Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• To avoid the risk of high-voltage electrical shock, do not touch the flash
portion of the camera if it has been damaged. Similarly, never touch internal
portions of the equipment that become exposed as a result of damage. There is a risk
of high-voltage electrical shock. Please take the first opportunity to consult your
camera distributor or a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Stop operating the equipment immediately if it emits smoke or noxious
fumes. Failure to do so may result in fire or electrical shock. Immediately turn the
camera’s power off, remove the camera battery or unplug the power cord from the
power outlet. Confirm that smoke and fume emissions have ceased. Please consult
your camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Stop operating the equipment if it is dropped or the casing is damaged. Failure to
do so may result in fire or electrical shock. Immediately turn the camera’s power off,
remove the camera battery or unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Please
consult your camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Do not allow the equipment to come into contact with, or become immersed
in, water or other liquids. Do not allow liquids to enter the interior. The camera has
not been waterproofed. If the exterior comes into contact with liquids or salt air, wipe it
dry with a soft, absorbent cloth. In the event that water or other foreign substances
enter the interior, immediately turn the camera’s power off and remove the camera
battery or unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Continued use of the
equipment may result in fire or electrical shock. Please consult your camera distributor
or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzene, thinners or other
flammable substances to clean or maintain the equipment. The use of these
substances may lead to fire.
• Remove the power cord on a regular periodic basis and wipe away the dust
and dirt that collects on the plug, the exterior of the power outlet and the
surrounding area. In dusty, humid or greasy environments, the dust that collects
around the plug over long periods of time may become saturated with humidity and
short-circuit, leading to fire.
5
• Do not cut, damage, alter or place heavy items on the power adapter cord. Any of
these actions may cause an electrical short circuit, which may lead to fire or electrical shock.
• Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet. Handling it with wet hands
may lead to electrical shock. When unplugging the cord, ensure that you hold the solid
portion of the plug. Pulling on the flexible portion of the cord may damage or expose the
wire and insulation, creating the potential for fires or electrical shocks.
• Use only the recommended power accessories. Use of power sources not
expressly recommended for this equipment may lead to overheating, distortion of the
equipment, fire, electrical shock or other hazards.
• Do not place the batteries near a heat source or expose them to direct flame or
heat. Neither should you immerse them in water. Such exposure may damage the batteries
and lead to the leakage of corrosive liquids, fire, electrical shock, explosion or serious injury.
• Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the batteries. There is
serious risk of injury due to an explosion. Immediately flush with water any area of the
body, including the eyes and mouth, or clothing, that comes into contact with the
inner contents of a battery. If the eyes or mouth contact these substances, immediately
flush with water and seek medical assistance.
• Avoid dropping or subjecting the batteries to severe impacts that could
damage the casings. It could lead to leakage and injury.
• Do not short-circuit the battery terminals with metallic objects, such as key
holders. It could lead to overheating, burns and other injuries. Use the supplied
terminal cover to transport or store the battery pack.
• Before you discard a battery, cover the terminals with tape or other insulators
to prevent direct contact with other objects. Contact with the metallic
components of other materials in waste containers may lead to fire or explosions.
Discard the batteries in specialized waste facilities if available in your area.
• Use only recommended batteries and accessories. Use of batteries not expressly
recommended for this equipment may cause explosions or leaks, resulting in fire,
injury and damage to the surroundings.
• Disconnect the compact power adapter from both the camera and power
outlet after recharging and when the camera is not in use to avoid fires and
other hazards. Continuous use over a long period of time may cause the unit to
overheat and distort, resulting in fire.
• The camera terminal of the supplied compact power cord is designed for
exclusive use with your camera. Do not use it with other products or batteries.
There is a risk of fire and other hazards.
6
• Exercise due caution when screwing on the separately sold wide converter
lens, tele-converter lens, close-up lens and conversion lens adapter. If they
loosen, fall off and shatter, the glass shards may cause an injury. Never aim the lenses
at the sun or strong light sources. There is a risk of damage to eyesight.
Cautions
• Avoid using, placing or storing the equipment in places subject to strong
sunlight or high temperatures, such as the dashboard or trunk (boot) of a car.
Exposure to intense sunlight and heat may cause the batteries to leak, overheat or
explode, resulting in fire, burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause
deformation of the casing. Ensure that there is good ventilation when using the
compact power adapter to charge the battery pack or power the camera.
• Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas. Storage in such areas could
lead to fire, electrical shock or other damage.
• Be careful not to bang the camera or subject it to strong impacts or shocks that
could lead to injury or damage the equipment when wearing or holding it by the strap.
• Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers when shooting. In addition,
do not touch the surface of the flash after taking several pictures in rapid succession.
Either action could result in burns.
• Do not operate the flash with dirt, dust or other items stuck to its lens. The
resulting heat build-up could damage the flash.
• If your camera is used for prolonged periods, the camera body may become
warm. Please take care when operating the camera for an extended period as your
hands may experience a burning sensation.
Preventing Malfunctions
■ Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
Never place the camera in close proximity to electric motors or other equipment
generating strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields may
cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
■ Avoid Condensation Related Problems
Moving the equipment rapidly between hot and cold temperatures may cause
condensation (water droplets) to form on its external and internal surfaces. You can
avoid this by placing the equipment in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and letting it
adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the bag.
■ If Condensation Forms Inside the Camera
Stop using the camera immediately if you detect condensation. Continued use may
damage the equipment. Remove the CF card, and battery or a household power
source, from the camera and wait until the moisture evaporates completely before
resuming use.

Indicator
• The indicator beside the viewfinder will blink
orange while the battery pack is charging and
change to steady orange when it is
approximately 90% charged, which is
adequate for use. If it is charged for
approximately 2 more hours, it will become
fully charged and the indicator will switch to
green.
• After charging the battery, remove it from the
camera when the camera will not be used.
○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
• If the power is turned on while charging, the battery pack will stop charging and
the compact power adapter will power the camera.
• This is a lithium ion battery pack so there is no need to completely use or discharge
it before recharging. It can be recharged at any time. However, since the maximum
number of charge cycle is approximately 300 times (buttery life), you are
recommended to only charge the battery pack after having discharged it
completely to pro long battery life.
• It takes approximately 80 minutes to bring a fully discharged battery pack to a
charge state of approximately 90% (adequate charge for use). It takes
approximately 2 more hours to charge it fully (based on Canon´s testing standard).
Charging it within a temperature range of 5 to 40º C (41 to 104º F) is recommended.
• Charging times will vary according to the surrounding humidity and battery pack
charge state.
• You can also charge the battery pack using the separately sold Battery Charger
CG-570* or CB-5L.
* The Compact Power Adapter CA-560 (included with the camera) or the separately sold Compact
Power Adapter CA-570 is required. (The Compact Power Adapter CA-570 cannot be used to power
the camera from a household power source)
• Battery Pack BP-512 (optional) can also be used in this camera.
Battery Pack Handling Precautions
•Keep the battery pack and camera terminals (
) clean at all times. Dirty
terminals may cause a poor contact between the battery pack and camera. Polish the
terminals with a tissue or a dry cloth before charging or using the battery pack.
•Do not cover the compact power adapter with anything, such as a tablecloth, cushion
or blanket, when it is charging. Heat will build up internally and possibly lead to fire.
•Do not charge batteries other than Battery Pack BP-511 or Battery Pack BP-512
with the supplied equipment. It could damage the camera.
17
Preparing the Camera, Basic Functions
Connect the DC plug of the compact
power adapter to the camera’s DC IN
terminal.
Charging the Battery Pack (continued)
•The battery pack continues to discharge a small amount when left in the camera
even with the power turned off. This shortens the battery life. Remove it from
the camera, attach the supplied terminal cover and store it at normal
temperature (30º C / 86º F or less) in a dry place. Charge it before use.
•Do not allow any metal objects such as keyrings to touch the “+” and “-”
terminals (Fig. A), as this can damage the battery pack. To carry the battery pack,
or store it during periods of disuse, always replace the terminal cover (Fig. B) or
place it in the supplied case and store it in a cool, dry place. Recharge it fully
before using it again.
Fig.A
Fig.B
B
D
•Even charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. You are advised to
charge the battery on the day of use, or one day before, to ensure a full charge.
•Since storing a fully charged battery pack for long periods of time (about 1 year)
can shorten its lifecycle or affect performance, you are recommended to use the
battery pack in the camera until the LB symbol displays and to store it at normal
temperature (30º C/86º F) or lower. If you do not use the battery pack for long
periods of time, charge it fully and discharge it fully in the camera at least once a
year before returning it to storage.
•The camera consumes the battery charge when the power is on even when a
function is not being used. To conserve the battery charge, be particularly
attentive in turning the camera off.
•Although the battery pack’s maximum operating range is 0 to 40º C (32 to 104º
F), the optimal range is 10 to 30º C (50 to 86º F). At cold temperatures, such as
those experienced when skiing, performance will temporarily decline, reducing
the usable time before recharging.
•If the usable time of a battery pack diminishes substantially even when fully
charged, it should be replaced.

Microdrives are a recording medium with a hard disk. Their merits are a large
capacity and a low price per megabyte of capacity. However, they can be more
susceptible to vibrations and shocks than CF cards, which use durable flash
memories. Please be careful, therefore, not to subject the camera to vibrations
or shocks when using a microdrive, especially while recording or replaying.
23
Preparing the Camera, Basic Functions
CF Card Handling Precautions
• CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend, force, or subject
them to shocks or vibration.
• Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card.
• Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes may cause condensation
to form in the card, leading to potential malfunctions. To avoid condensation
formation, place the CF card in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a
different temperature zone and allow it to adjust slowly to the new temperature. If
condensation forms on the CF card, put it aside until the water droplets have
evaporated completely.
• Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage.
• Do not use or store CF cards in the following types of locations.
• Locations subject to dust or sand
• Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures

About the Histogram
The histogram is a graph that allows you to judge the brightness of the recorded
image. The greater the bias toward the left in the graph, the darker the image. The
greater the bias toward to the right, the brighter the image. If the image is dark,
adjust the exposure compensation to a positive number. Similarly, adjust the
exposure compensation to a negative number if the image is bright (p. 85).

• If the orange or yellow indicator blinks while you press halfway, you can still press
fully to take the shot.
• Images are first saved into the camera’s internal memory before being recorded
onto the CF card, allowing the next images to be taken immediately as long as
sufficient space is available in the internal memory.
• The beep and shutter sound can be set On / Off in the Set up menu (p. 162, 163).
• When the shutter sound is set to Off, but the beep is set to On, one beep will
sound when the shutter button is fully pressed.
• There is no shutter sound in movie mode.
• Shots cannot be taken while the flash is charging.
AF-assist Beam
• The AF-assist beam will sometimes emit when the shutter button is pressed
halfway to assist focusing in certain conditions, i.e. dark conditions.
• The AF-assist beam can be turned off (p. 159).
If animals are your subject, turn off the beam when shooting in the dark to avoid
startling them. However, please keep in mind the following facts.
- Turning the AF-assist beam off may make it more difficult for the camera to
focus.
- The red-eye reduction lamp may emit when you press the shutter button
halfway even if the AF-assist beam is turned off.
In order to prevent any lamp from emitting before the flash fires, set both the redeye reduction function and the AF-assist beam to [Off] in the Shooting menu.

Shooting - Letting the Camera Select Settings
Initial Shooting
Mode
Changing the File Format
The recording file format can be switched to the RAW format before shooting the
image.
With the standard JPEG file format, the camera processes images after capturing
them to produce optimal results. The JPEG format compresses images so that more
can be stored on a single CF card. However, the compression is irreversible,
meaning that the original image data cannot be recovered after processing. In
contrast, the RAW format records the image data as captured by the camera’s CCD
without further processing. RAW images are compressed, but the compression is
reversible** so that a high-quality image can be obtained from the decompressed
file without any loss of image quality. In addition, although a RAW file is larger than
an equivalent JPEG file, it is still only approximately one-quarter the size* of an
uncompressed RGB TIFF format file, making it relatively compact.
With standard uncompressed file formats, such as RGB TIFF, images are processed
in the camera and require further processing by retouching software to adjust the
image parameters, which reduces image quality. With the RAW format, however,
the original data can be used in special software** to adjust the image parameters
(white balance, contrast, sharpness and saturation) making it possible to maintain
the image quality while making changes. The resolution (2592 x 1944) and
compression settings cannot be adjusted for these images.
* As measured by Canon´s testing standard.
** The bundled software can be used to open or adjust the parameters of images recorded in the RAW file
format. Please consult the Software Starter Guide for details.

Shooting - Letting the Camera Select Settings
When shooting with the red-eye reduction function, the subjects must look right at
the red-eye reduction lamp for this mode to be effective. Try asking them to look
directly at the lamp. Even better results can be obtained by shooting with the lens set
to a wide angle, increasing the lighting in indoor settings or approaching closer to
the subject.

• The nature of CCD image sensors is such that noise in the recorded image
increases at slow shutter speeds. This camera, however, applies special processing
to images shot at shutter speeds slower than 1.3 seconds to eliminate the noise,
thereby producing high-quality images. Nevertheless, a certain amount of
processing time may be required before the next image can be shot.

• Each folder usually contains up to 100 images. However, since images shot in
Continuous mode or Stitch Assist mode are always saved into the same folder, a
folder may contain more than 100 images. The number of images may also
exceed 100 if a folder contains images copied from a computer or images shot
with other cameras. Please note, however, that the images in folders containing
2001 or more images cannot be replayed in this camera.
