produced by the flash may damage eyesight. In particular, remain at least one meter (39 inches) away
from infants when using the flash.
6
Read This First
z 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 a child's neck
could result in asphyxiation.
z 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.
z Do not attempt to disassemble or alter any part of the equipment that is not expressly described

Read This First
z 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, skin,
or clothing that comes into contact with the inner contents of a battery.
z Avoid dropping or subjecting the batteries to severe impacts that could damage the casings. It
could lead to leakage and injury.
z Do not short-circuit the battery terminals with metallic objects, such as key holders. It could lead
to overheating, burns and other injuries.
z 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.
z 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.
z If using AA-size NiMH batteries, use only Canon AA-size NiMH batteries and the charger
recommended for use with these batteries. Use of another charger may cause batteries to overheat
or deform, posing risk of fire or electric shock.
z Disconnect the battery charger or 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 may cause a unit to overheat and distort, resulting in fire.
z The camera terminal of the battery charger cord and the 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.

CAUTIONS
z 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 battery charger to charge the batteries or power the camera.
z Do not store the equipment in humid or dusty areas. Storage in such areas could lead to fire,
electrical shock or other damage.
z 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.
z Be careful not to cover the flash with your fingers or clothing when shooting. The flash may be
damaged and emit smoke or noise. In addition, do not touch the surface of the flash after taking several
pictures in rapid succession. Either action could result in burns.
z Do not operate the flash with dirt, dust or other items stuck to its lens. The resulting heat build-up
could damage the flash.
z Ensure that the battery charger is plugged into a power outlet of the specified rating, not over the
specified rating. The plug of the battery charger varies according to region.
z Do not use the battery charger or compact power adapter if the cable or plug is damaged, or if the
plug is not fully inserted into the power outlet.
z Do not allow metal objects (such as pins or keys) or dirt to contact the charger terminals or plug.
z 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 SD card and battery or power cord (if connected)
from the camera and wait until the moisture evaporates completely before resuming use.
Extended Storage
When not using the camera for extended periods of time, remove the batteries from the camera or battery
charger and store the equipment in a safe place. Storing the camera for extended periods with batteries
installed will run down the battery and may damage the camera.

never perform the following actions during
this time. It could corrupt the image data.
• Subject the camera body to vibration
or shocks.
• Turn the camera’s power off or open
the SD card slot/battery cover.
z Please note that SD cards formatted
with other manufacturers’ cameras or a
computer, or formatted or edited with
application programs, may slow down
writing to the SD card or may not
operate correctly in the camera.
z You are recommended to use SD cards
that have been formatted in your camera
(p. 19). The card supplied with the camera
may be used without further formatting.
z We recommend that you use the
separately sold AC Adapter Kit ACK800 to
power the camera during long usage
sessions (p. 124).
z The separately sold battery charger kit
lets you use rechargeable NiMH
batteries to power the camera (p. 121).
Preparing the Camera
z See Battery Performance (p. 129).
z For information about the Battery and
Charger Kit and AA-size rechargeable
NiMH batteries, see the System Map
(separate from this guide).
z See SD Cards and Estimated Capacities
(Recordable Images) (p. 129).
Proper Battery Handling
z Use AA-size alkaline or Canon AA-size NiMH
batteries (sold separately) only. For information
on handling the AA-size rechargeable NiMH
batteries, see Using the Power Kits (Sold
Separately) (p. 121).
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 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. If you are
using the camera in cold areas or for a long time,
we recommend using Canon AA-size NiMH
Battery Kit NB4-200 (a four-battery Kit).
z While it is possible to use AA-size nickelcadmium batteries, performance is unreliable
and their use is not recommended.
z Never mix unused and partially used
batteries. Always load two fresh (or fully
recharged) batteries at the same time. The
partially used batteries may leak.
z Be careful to load the batteries with their positive
(+) and negative (-) ends in the right direction.
z Never mix batteries of different types or from
different manufacturers. Both batteries
should be identical.
z Before inserting the batteries, wipe the battery
terminals well with a dry cloth. Oil from one's skin
or other dirt may cause a considerable reduction
in the number of recordable images or reduced
usage time.
z Battery performance deteriorates at low
temperatures (especially with alkaline batteries).
If you are using the camera in cold areas and
batteries are running down faster than they
should, you may be able to restore performance
by placing batteries in an inner pocket to warm
them up prior to use. But be careful that you don't
put the batteries into a pocket together with a
metal key chain or other metallic objects, as these
objects may cause batteries to short-circuit.
17
Preparing the Camera
z If you do not plan to use the camera for a long
time, remove the batteries from the camera and
store them in a safe place. Batteries may leak
and damage the camera if left installed during
prolonged periods of non-use.
WARNINGS
Never use damaged batteries or batteries
whose outer seal is completely or partially
missing or peeled off, as there is risk that
such batteries may leak, overheat, or burst.
Always check the seals on store-bought
batteries before loading them, as some
batteries may come with defective seals. Do
not use batteries with defective seals.
Never use batteries that look like this.
Batteries with all or part of the
seal (electrical insulation sheath)
peeled off.
The positive electrode (plus
terminal) is flat.
The negative terminal is correctly
formed (protruding from the
metal base), but the seal does
not extend up over the edge of
the metal base.

Formatting an SD Card
You should always format an SD card when
you wish to use a new one, or when you wish
to delete not only the images in the SD card
but also other data.
Formatting an SD card will permanently
erase all data already on it, including all of
its protected images. Check the contents
before formatting cards that were
previously used.

z The capacity of the SD card displayed after
formatting will be less than the rated capacity
of the SD card. This is not a malfunction of
the SD card or camera.
5
Press the MENU button.
19
Preparing the Camera
z If the camera is not operating correctly, the
SD card may be corrupted. Formatting the
card may solve the problem.
z If you are using an SD card from another
manufacturer and the card is not functioning
correctly, you may be able to correct the
problem by formatting the card.
z SD cards formatted with another camera, a
computer or peripheral device may not
operate correctly. Format these cards with
this camera. If formatting in the camera
doesn't work properly, turn the camera off
and re-insert the SD card. Then turn the
camera back on and format again.
Handling Precautions for SD Cards
z SD cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not
bend them, apply force to them, or subject them to
shocks or vibration.
z Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the SD card.
z Do not allow dirt, water or foreign objects to contact
the terminals on the back of the card. Do not touch the
terminals with your hands or metal objects.
z Do not peel away the original label on the SD card or
cover it with another label or sticker.
20
z When writing on the SD card, use a soft point pen (e.g.
felt-tip pen). Using a sharp point pen (e.g. ball-point
pen) or pencil may damage the SD card or corrupt the
recorded data.
z Since some or all of the data recorded on the SD card
may be corrupted or erased by electrical noise, static
electricity or card malfunction, making a backup copy
of important data is recommended.
z Moving an SD card rapidly between temperature
extremes will cause condensation to form in the card
and lead to a malfunction. To avoid condensation,
place the SD card in a sealed plastic bag before
moving it into a different temperature zone and allow it
to adjust slowly to the new temperature.
z If condensation forms on the SD card, store it at room
temperature until the water droplets have evaporated
naturally.
z Do not use or store SD cards in the following locations.
• Locations subject to dust or sand
• Locations subject to high humidity and high
temperatures
Precaution for Multi Media Cards
This camera is designed to perform optimally when
used with genuine Canon-brand SD cards. You may

Basic Functions
About the Histogram
The histogram is a graph that allows you to
judge the brightness of the shot 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 too dark, adjust the
exposure compensation to a positive
value. Similarly, adjust the exposure
compensation to a negative value if the
image is too bright (p. 76).

center of the image
Viewfinder
About the AF Function
This camera employs AiAF (artificial
intelligence autofocus) technology, which
uses a broad metering field to calculate the
focal distance with high precision. It delivers
a crisp focus even when the photographic
subject is slightly off-center.
The camera can also automatically focus on
the center when AiAF is set to [Off].
Image Seen in Viewfinder vs. Recorded
Image
When shooting an image, a larger range than
the one visible in the viewfinder usually gets
recorded. You can confirm the actual range
that will be recorded in the LCD monitor. In
addition, due to the viewfinder’s
specification, the range visible in the
viewfinder may actually differ from the actual
recorded image. The closer the subject is to
the lens, the more noticeable the difference
will be. In some cases, portions of images
shot up close that appear in the viewfinder
will not appear in the recorded image. You
are recommended to use the LCD monitor
during macro photography (p. 42).
33
Shooting – The Basics
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. 65).
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.
• If the AF-assist beam is turned off, it
may become more difficult for the
camera to focus in dark conditions.
• 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 red-eye reduction function and the
AF-assist beam to [Off] in the Shooting
menu.

(Battery and Charger Kit CBK4-200)
Included are the battery charger and four
rechargeable AA-size NiMH (nickel metal hydride)
batteries. Charge the batteries as shown below.
Four

Two
batteries
* Two batteries can be
charged instead of four.
Charge Indicator
The indicator blinks while charging, then remains
lit when charging is finished.
Four batteries are supplied with the Battery
and Charger Kit CBK4-200, however, only
two batteries are used for this camera.
121
Appendix
z This charger can be used only to charge
Canon AA-size NiMH batteries NB-2AH.
Please do not attempt to charge NB-2AH
batteries in any other type of charger.
z Never mix new batteries together with
batteries that have been used in other
devices.
z When recharging batteries from the
camera, always recharge both of them
at the same time.
z Do not mix batteries with different
purchase dates or different charge
states.
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.
z Repeatedly recharging batteries before
they become fully depleted may cause
batteries to lose capacity. Do not
recharge the batteries until the LCD
monitor displays the "Change the
batteries" message.
122
z 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 matter of
a few minutes (the battery charger
indicator remains lit)
z You may not be able to fully charge the
batteries due to their specifications right
after purchase or after long periods of
non-use. If this happens, use the
batteries until their charge is depleted
before charging them again. After doing
this several times, battery performance
will be restored.
Appendix
z Since storing a fully charged battery for
long periods of time (about one year)
can shorten its lifecycle or affect
performance, you are recommended to
use the battery in the camera until it is
completely discharged and to store it at
normal temperature (23 °C/73 °F or
less). If you do not use the battery 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.
z If battery usage time is considerably low
despite their terminals' being wiped and
the battery charger's indicator remaining
lit, it is possible that the batteries have
reached the end of their lifespan. Switch
to different, unused batteries. If you are
purchasing new batteries, look for
Canon AA-size NiMH batteries.
z Leaving batteries in the camera or
charger may damage it causing battery
leakage. Remove batteries from the
camera or charger and store in a dry
cool location when not in use.
z It takes approximately 110 minutes when
two batteries are loaded one at each
end of the charger and 250 minutes with
four for the charger to fully recharge
them (as determined by testing at Canon
facilities). Please do not charge batteries
in areas where the temperature is
outside the range of 0 to 35 °C (32 to
104 °F).
z Charging time varies according to
ambient temperature and to the
batteries' initial charge state.
z The battery charger may emit noise
while charging. This is not a malfunction.
z You can also use Battery/Charger Kit
CBK100. For Battery/Charger Kit
CBK100, use Canon AA-size NiMH
batteries NB-1AH.
123
Appendix
Using the AC Adapter Kit ACK800
Use of the separately sold AC Adapter Kit ACK800
is recommended when using the camera

Photo Tips and Information
This section offers photography tips.
Tip for Using the Self-timer (p. 43)
Normally, the camera shakes a little when you press
the shutter button.
Setting the self-timer to
delays the shutter release
for two seconds and allows the camera to stop
shaking, thus preventing a blurred image.
Even better results can be obtained by placing the
camera on a stable surface or by using a tripod to
shoot.
Underexposure
The whole recorded image is
dark, which makes white
elements of the image appear
gray. Shooting bright subjects
or in backlit conditions may
cause the image to be
underexposed. Adjust the
exposure compensation
towards the + end.
Optimal Exposure
How to Adjust the Exposure (p. 76)
This camera automatically adjusts the exposure to
shoot images with the optimal brightness.
However, recorded images may sometimes be
brighter or darker than the actual image depending
on the shooting conditions. If this happens, adjust
the exposure compensation manually.
132
Overexposure
The whole recorded image is
bright, which makes black
elements of the image
appear gray. Shooting dark
subjects or in dark places
may cause the image to be
overexposed. Adjust the
exposure compensation
towards the - end.
Photo Tips and Information
ISO Speed (p. 79)
The ISO speed is the numeric representation of the
camera's sensitivity to light. The higher the ISO
speed, the higher the sensitivity. A high ISO speed
allows you to shoot images in dark indoor or
outdoor conditions without a flash and also helps
prevent blurred images due to camera shake. This
is convenient when shooting images in places
where flash photography is prohibited. The ISO
speed setting makes full use of the available light,
resulting in images that convey the feel of the place
they were shot.
