Please read this manual carefully to operate
the All Weather Case correctly. Keep this
manual for further reference.
Introduction
• Thank you for purchasing this All Weather Case. It
will allow you to use your Canon Digital Camera in
the rain, at the beach or on the ski slopes. You can
also use it underwater at depths down to 3 meters
(9.8 ft) and in wet or dusty environments.
• Before you use the All Weather Case, please make
sure the case is functioning correctly and water does
not leak into it. To do so, close the All Weather Case
before installing the camera and hold it underwater
at a depth of about 15 cm (6.0 in) for a few minutes
to check for leaks.
If water leaks in to your All Weather Case, please
contact your Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• Canon Inc., its subsidiaries and affiliates, and
distributors of the All Weather Case are not liable for
any consequential damages arising from corrupted or
lost data due to mistaken operation or malfunction
of the All Weather Case, the digital camera, the
battery or the CompactFlash™ card (CF card) that
results in the failure of an image to be recorded or to
be recorded in a format that is machine readable.
• Please read your digital camera's user manual.

Safety Precautions
Before you use the All Weather Case, thoroughly read
these precautions to ensure correct use.
The precautions described below are for ensuring safe
use of the All Weather Case and for preventing danger
and damage to yourself and others. Thoroughly
understand the details of these precautions before
reading the rest of this manual.
• Do not use the All Weather Case as a life preserver. It
may sink if water leaks into the case, and may not
save you from drowning.
• Do not disassemble or modify the All Weather Case.
This may cause it to leak.
• Do not damage the waterproof seal, scratch its
contact surfaces, or allow dirt to accumulate
between the waterproof seal and the case. This may
cause the All Weather Case to leak.
• Do not use the All Weather Case in water at
temperatures above 40°C (104 OF). Heat may warp
the All Weather Case or cause it to leak.
• Do not leave the All Weather Case in direct sunlight,
inside a car in hot weather or near a heater. Heat
may warp the casing and cause the All Weather Case
to leak. Cover the All Weather Case with a towel, for
example, if you have to leave it in the sun.

Handling Precautions
• Do not throw the All Weather Case into water, nor
drop it in snow.
• Use only the supplied silicone grease. Use of other
waterproofing products may impair the strength of
the All Weather Case. If any other waterproofing
product is mistakenly applied, wipe it off
immediately.
• Avoid opening or closing the All Weather Case near
water. When you are installing the camera or
changing the CF card or the battery, choose a place
with low humidity well away from salty sea air.
• Avoid using the All Weather Case for long periods of
time in hot temperatures.
• The life of the battery is reduced in cold
temperatures. When you use the All Weather Case
in very cold places, keep it warm by putting it in a
bag whenever you are not shooting. It is not
advisable to use the All Weather Case in
temperatures below freezing point.
• Moving the All Weather Case rapidly between hot
and cold temperatures may cause condensation
(water droplets) to form on its external and internal
surfaces. Condensation may cause malfunctions. You
can avo'ld this by placing the All Weather Case in an
airtight plastic bag and letting it adjust to
temperature changes slowly before removing it from
the bag. Stop using the camera immediately if you
detect condensation, wipe off the condensation from
the All Weather Case and the camera with a soft, dry
cloth, and wait until the moisture evaporates
completely before resuming use.
Never remove the waterproof seal. Contact
your Canon Customer Support Help Desk.

About Water Leakage
If there is any leakage of water in the All Weather
Case, immediately stop shooting. Thoroughly wipe the
All Weather Case interior and the camera dry. Please
contact your Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
Treat the Waterproof Seal
with care
• Before you release the Catch after using the All
Weather Case in salty, sandy or gritty environments,
wash the All Weather Case thoroughly with clean,
running tap water to remove any sand or grit. Then
wipe it with a soft, dry cloth. If you wipe the All
Weather Case with sand or grit on it, it may become
scratched. Also, if the All Weather Case is left in
contact with salty seawater, the metal parts may rust.
• To prevent wear on the waterproof seal, apply a thin
coating of grease. Do not use a cloth or paper to
apply the grease, as fibers may stick to the seal.
Apply a small amount (droplet) of grease to your
fingertip, and coat the entire surface of the
waterproof seal taking care not to scratch the
surface.
• A damaged or cracked waterproof seal may cause
the All Weather Case to leak. Please contact your
Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
To ensure that the All Weather Case remains
waterproof, it is recommended to replace the
seal once a year. Please contact your Canon
Customer Support Help Desk.
