Camera Body Temperature
If your camera is used for prolonged periods, the camera body
may become warm. Please be aware of this and take care when
operating the camera for an extended period. This is not a
malfunction.

The LCD monitor and viewfinder are produced with extremely
high-precision manufacturing techniques. More than 99.99% of
the pixels operate to specification. Less than 0.01% of the pixels
may occasionally misfire or appear as red or black dots. This has
no effect on the recorded image and does not constitute a
malfunction.

slower than 1.3 seconds to eliminate the noise, thereby
producing high-quality images. (However, a certain amount of

be obtained when the exposure setting is incorrect (image
appears completely black or white).
When taking a white balance data reading at close range
while using flash, you may not be able to obtain proper
exposure. After obtaining the white balance data, be sure
to check whether the proper color balance was obtained. If
not, increase the distance between the camera and the
white paper or cloth that you wish to use as the standard,
and take the white balance data reading again.
Shoot with the same settings as when reading the white
balance data. If the settings differ, the optimal white
balance may not be set. In particular, the following should
not be changed.
- ISO Speed
- Flash:
Setting the flash to
or
is recommended. If the
flash fires when reading the white balance data with the
flash set to
, make sure that you also use the flash
when you shoot.
Since the white balance data cannot be read in Stitch
Assist mode, preset the white balance in another shooting
mode beforehand.
The white balance data is retained even after the camera
power is turned off.

stills and movies, allowing you to enjoy producing various effects.
Depending on the shooting conditions, however, the images may
appear rough, or you may not get the expected color. Before

and checking the results. By setting the [Save Original] function
(p. 148) to [On] when shooting stills, you can also record both the
altered image and the original, unaltered image.

Preventing Malfunctions
Camera
Avoid Strong Magnetic Fields
z 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
z When moving the equipment rapidly from cold to hot
temperatures, you can avoid condensation 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 on the camera, remove the memory card and
batteries, and set the camera aside in room temperature to allow the
condensation to naturally evaporate before using the camera again.
Battery
z This camera uses AA-size alkaline batteries or Canon AA-size
NiMH batteries (sold separately).
While it is possible to use AA-size nickel-cadmium batteries,
performance is unreliable and their use is not recommended.
z Since the performance of alkaline batteries may differ
according to brand, the operating time of the batteries you
purchase may not be as long as the batteries that came with
the camera.
z When using the camera under low temperature conditions or
over long periods, you are recommend to use Canon AA-size
NiMH batteries (sold separately).
Camera operating time may shorten at low temperatures when
alkaline batteries are used. Also due to their specifications, alkaline
batteries may expire faster than NiMH batteries.

Using the Power Kits (Sold Separately)
Using Rechargeable Batteries

This kit includes a battery charger and four rechargeable AA-size
NiMH (nickel metal hydride) batteries. Charge batteries as shown
below.

Charge Indicator
• After inserting the batteries, plug the charger (CB-5AH) into an outlet,
or attach the power cord to the charger (CB-5AHE, not shown) and
plug the other end into an outlet.
• Do not insert and charge additional batteries once charging has
begun.
• The charge indicator blinks while charging, then remains lit when
charging is finished.
C
z The CB-5AH/CB-5AHE battery charger can only be used to
charge Canon AA-size NiMH batteries NB-3AH.
z Do not mix batteries with different purchase dates or
different charge states. When recharging batteries, always
recharge all four of them at the same time.
z Do not attempt to recharge fully charged batteries, as doing
so may reduce or impair battery performance. Also, do not
charge batteries for more than 24 consecutive hours.
z Do not recharge batteries in enclosed areas that tend to
retain heat.

the “Change the batteries” message. Repeatedly recharging
batteries before they become depleted may cause batteries
to lose capacity.
Wipe the battery terminals well with a dry cloth in the
following situations, as the terminals may be soiled with oil
from one’s skin or other dirt:
- If the battery usage time has considerably diminished
- If the number of recordable images has considerably
diminished
- When charging the batteries (insert and remove the
batteries two or three times before charging)
- When charging completes in a space of a few minutes (the
battery charger indicator remains lit)
You may not be able to fully charge the batteries due to their
specifications right after purchase or after long periods of
nonuse. If this happens, after fully charging them, use the
batteries until their charge is depleted. After doing this
several times, battery performance will be restored.
If you store batteries for a long period of time (about 1 year), it
is recommended that you deplete the batteries in the camera
and to then store them at room temperature (0 to 30 °C/32 to
90 °F) in low humidity. Storing them in a fully charged condition
can shorten their lifespan or degrade their performance. Again,
if you do not use batteries for more than 1 year, fully charge
them once a year and deplete them in the camera before
storing them.
If the battery usage time has become considerably low
despite wiping the terminals and charging them until the
battery charger indicator remains lit, this may indicate that
the batteries have reached the end of their lifespan. Replace
them with new batteries. If you are purchasing new
batteries, look for Canon AA-size NiMH batteries.
Leaving batteries in the camera or charger may result in
damage from battery leakage. When not in use, remove the
batteries from the camera or charger and store them in a
cool, dry location.
256
z It takes approximately 4 hours 40 minutes for the charger to
fully recharge the batteries after they have been depleted.
Charge batteries in an environment where the temperature is
in the range of 0 to 35 °C (32 to 95 °F).
z The charging time varies according to the ambient
temperature and to the battery charge state.
z The battery charger may emit noise while charging. This is
not a malfunction.
Using the AC Power Adapter CA-PS700
It is best to power the camera with Power Adapter CA-PS700 (sold
separately) when you are using it for long periods of time or connecting
it to a computer.

Replacing the Date Battery
If the Date/Time in the Set up menu appears when the camera power
is turned on, the date battery charge is low and the date and time
setting have been lost. Please purchase a lithium coin battery
(CR1220) and replace it as follows.
The date battery is preinstalled at the factory and may therefore
expire earlier than its rated lifespan after the camera has been
purchased.
Be particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the
reach of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a
child swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids could
damage the stomach or intestinal wall.
