• Do not aim the camera at bright light sources (such as the sun on a clear day).
Doing so may damage the image sensor.
• When using the camera on a beach or at a windy location, be careful not to allow
dust or sand to enter the camera.
This may cause the product to malfunction.
• In regular use, small amounts of smoke may be emitted from the flash.
This is due to the high intensity of the flash burning dust and foreign materials stuck to the
front of the unit. Please use a cotton swab to remove dirt, dust or other foreign matter from
the flash to prevent heat build-up and damage to the unit.
• Remove and store the batteries when you are not using the camera.
If the batteries are left inside the camera, damage caused by leakage may occur.
• Before you discard the batteries, cover the terminals with tape or other
insulators.
Contacting other metal materials may lead to fire or explosions.

Formatting Memory Cards
Before you use a new memory card or one that has been formatted in other
devices, you should format the card with this camera.
Formatting (initializing) a memory card erases all data on the memory card.
As you cannot retrieve the erased data, exercise adequate caution before
formatting the memory card.
Before formatting an Eye-Fi card (p. 165), be sure to install the software
contained on the card to a computer.
Display the menu.

to start formatting.
z When formatting ends, [Memory card
formatting complete] appears on the
screen. Press the m button.
21
Pressing the Shutter Button
Formatting or erasing data on a memory card merely changes the file
management information on the card and does not ensure its contents are
completely erased. Be careful when transferring or disposing of a memory
card. When disposing of a memory card, take precautions such as
physically destroying the card to prevent personal information leaks.
• The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the formatting screen
may be less than indicated on the memory card.
• Perform a low-level format (p. 151) of the memory card when the camera
does not operate properly, the recording/reading speed of a memory card
has dropped, when continuous shooting speed slows down, or when
movie recording stops suddenly.

takes the shot.
z Since the shot is being taken while the
shutter sound plays, be careful not to move
the camera.
Does the length of the shutter sound change?
• Since the time required to shoot differs depending on the scene you want to
take, the length of the shutter sound may change.
• If the camera or subject moves while the shutter sound is playing, the recorded
image may be blurry.
If you shoot without pressing the shutter button halfway, the image may not
be in focus.

What if...
• What if the color and brightness of the images do not turn out as
expected?
The scene icon (p. 174) that appears on the screen may not match the actual
scene, and you may not obtain the expected results. If this happens, try
shooting in G mode (p. 73).
• What if white and gray frames appear when you point the camera toward
a subject?
A white frame appears on the face or subject that the camera detected as the
main subject, while gray frames appear on other detected faces. The frames will
follow the subjects within a certain range.
If the subject moves, however, the gray frames will disappear, leaving only the
white frame.
• What if a frame does not appear on the subject you want to shoot?
The subject may not be detected, and frames may appear on the background.
If this happens, try shooting in G mode (p. 73).
• What if a blue frame appears when you press the shutter button halfway?
A blue frame appears when a moving subject is detected; the focus and
exposure will continuously adjust (Servo AF).
• What if a flashing
appears?
Attach the camera to a tripod so that the camera does not move and blur the
image.
• What if the camera does not play any sounds?
You may have been pressing the l button while turning on the camera,
which will turn off all sounds. To turn the sounds on, press the n button to

Using an Eye-Fi Card
Before using an Eye-Fi card, be sure to check whether Eye-Fi card use is
authorized in the country or territory of use (p. 14).
When you put a prepared Eye-Fi card into the camera, you can automatically
transfer your images wirelessly to a computer, or upload them to a web
service.
Image transfer is a function of the Eye-Fi card. For details on how to setup
and use the card, and concerning problems transferring images, please refer
to the Eye-Fi card user guide, or contact the manufacturer.
Please keep the following things in mind when using an Eye-Fi card.
• Even if you set [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable] (p. 166), the Eye-Fi card may transmit
radio waves. Be sure to remove the Eye-Fi card from the camera before
entering areas that prevent unauthorized transmission of radio waves, such as
hospitals and airplanes.
• If you have trouble transferring images, check the card or computer settings.
For details, refer to the user guide supplied with the card.
• Depending on the connection status of the wireless network, it may take time to
transfer images, or image transfer may be interrupted.
• Due to its transfer function, the Eye-Fi card may become hot.
• Battery consumption will be quicker than in normal use.
• Camera operations will be slower than in normal use. This may be resolved by
setting [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable].

accordingly for the best shot. It also detects orientation during playback, so you can hold the
camera in either orientation and it will automatically rotate images for correct viewing.
This function may not operate correctly when the camera is pointed straight up or down.

Handling Precautions
• This camera is a high-precision electronic device. Do not drop it or subject
it to strong impacts.
• Never place the camera close to magnets, motors or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic fields

• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to wipe the camera or
screen.
• Use a commercially available blower brush to remove dust from the lens.
For stubborn dirt contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• When you move the camera rapidly from cold to hot temperatures,
condensation may form on the internal or external surfaces of the camera.
To avoid condensation, put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag
and let it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it from the
bag.
• If condensation has formed on the camera, stop using it immediately, as
continued use may damage the camera. Remove the batteries and
memory card, and wait until the moisture has completely evaporated
before resuming use.
