Exposure to the intense light produced by the flash could damage eyesight.
In particular, remain at least 1 meter (39 inches) away from infants when
using the flash.
• Store this equipment out of the reach of children and infants.
Strap: Putting the strap around a child’s neck could result in asphyxiation.
•
•
•
•
Use only recommended power sources.
Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the product.
Avoid dropping or subjecting the product to severe impacts.
To avoid the risk of injury, do not touch the interior of the product if
it has been dropped or otherwise damaged.
• Stop using the product immediately if it emits smoke, a strange
smell, or otherwise behaves abnormally.
• Do not use organic solvents such as alcohol, benzine, or thinner to
clean the product.

Formatting Memory Cards
Before using a new memory card or a card formatted in another device, you
should format the card with this camera.
Formatting erases all data on a memory card. Before formatting, copy
images on the memory card to a computer, or take other steps to back them
up.
An Eye-Fi card (= 90) contains software on the card itself. Before
formatting an Eye-Fi card, install the software on a computer.

• Formatting or erasing data on a memory card only changes file
management information on the card and does not erase the data
completely. When transferring or disposing of memory cards, take
steps to protect personal information if necessary, as by physically
destroying cards.
• The total card capacity indicated on the formatting screen may be less than
the advertised capacity.
Low-Level Formatting
Perform low-level formatting in these cases: [Memory card error] is
displayed, the camera is not working correctly, card image reading/writing is
slower, continuous shooting is slower, or movie recording suddenly stops.
Low-level formatting erases all data on a memory card. Before low-level
formatting, copy images on the memory card to a computer, or take other
steps to back them up.

• Regardless of the option selected in this setting, shots may be numbered
consecutively after the last number of existing images on newly inserted

Using an Eye-Fi Card
Still Images
Movies
Before using an Eye-Fi card, always confirm that local use is permitted
(= 2).
Inserting a prepared Eye-Fi card enables automatic wireless transfer of
images to a computer or uploading to a photo-sharing website.
Images are transferred by the Eye-Fi card. Refer to the card’s user manual
or contact the manufacturer for instructions on preparing and using cards or
resolving transfer problems.
• When using an Eye-Fi card, keep the following points in mind.
- Cards may continue to transmit radio waves even when [Eye-Fi
trans.] is set to [Disable] (= 91). Remove the Eye-Fi card before
entering hospitals, aircraft, or other areas where transmission is
prohibited.
- When troubleshooting image transfer issues, check the card and
computer settings. For details, refer to the card’s user manual.
- Poor Eye-Fi connections may cause image transfer to take a long
time, and transfer may be interrupted in some cases.
- Eye-Fi cards may become hot, due to their transfer functions.
- Battery power will be consumed faster than in normal use.
- Camera operation may become sluggish. To resolve this, try
setting [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable].
Connection status of Eye-Fi cards in the camera can be checked on the
shooting screen (in regular information display mode) or playback screen (in
simple information display mode).

• If the same error message is displayed even after you have formatted a supported
memory card (= 2) and have inserted it facing the correct way, contact a Canon
Customer Support Help Desk (= 11).
Insufficient space on card
• There is not enough free space on the memory card to shoot (= 28, 39, 47)
or edit images (= 69 – 71). Either erase unneeded images (= 67) or insert a
memory card with enough free space (= 11).

Exceeded selection limit
• Print List (= 86) or Photobook Set-up (= 88) settings could not be saved
correctly. Reduce the number of selected images and try again.
Communication error
• An excessive amount of images (approx. 1,000) on the memory card prevented
printing or image transfer to a computer. To transfer the images, use a commercially
available USB card reader. To print, insert the memory card directly into the printer
card slot.
Naming error!
• The folder could not be created or images could not be recorded, because the highest
supported folder number (999) for storing images on the card has been reached and
the highest supported image number (9999) for images in folders has been reached.
In the [3] menu, change [File Numbering] to [Auto Reset] (= 75), or format the
memory card (= 74).
Lens Error
• This error may occur if the lens is held while it is moving, or when the camera is used
in dusty or sandy locations.
File Error
• Correct printing (= 83) may not be possible for photos from other cameras or
images that have been altered using computer software, even if the camera is
connected to the printer.
Print error
• Check the paper size setting (= 85). If this error message is displayed when the
setting is correct, restart the printer and complete the setting on the camera again.
Ink absorber full
• Contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk to request assistance with ink
absorber replacement.

• Use a blower brush to remove dust from the lens. If cleaning is difficult,
contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
• To prevent condensation from forming on the camera after sudden
temperature changes (when the camera is transferred from cold to warm
environments), put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic bag and
let it gradually adjust to the temperature before removing it from the bag.
• If condensation does form on the camera, stop using it immediately.
Continuing to use the camera in this state may damage it. Remove the
battery and memory card, and wait until the moisture has evaporated
before resuming use.
• Before long-term battery storage, use up the battery’s remaining charge,
remove it from the camera, and store it in a plastic bag or similar
container. Storing a partially charged battery over extended periods
(about a year) may shorten its life or affect performance.
