Histogram
Function
The histogram is a graph that allows you to check the brightness
of the image. The greater the bias toward the left in the graph, the
darker the image.
The greater the bias toward 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. 56).

the effect before taking the actual picture.
eUse this mode in as dark a place as possible where there are
points of light, such as holiday lighting.
eShoot within range of the flash (p. 139) to ensure the subject is
illuminated by the flash. The subject must only be illuminated by
the flash and the point source.
eAfter shooting, check the image to see if it turns out as expected.

• The image stabilization function may not be as effective in
this mode as in others.
• The shape may not appear as expected if there is too much
camera shake or you are shooting a moving light source.
• The relative positions of the subject and the light source will
determine whether the shape overlaps the subject in the
image.
• Shooting conditions may cause unexpected results in terms
of image brightness and how well the shape is maintained
in the image.

On
The camera detects the subject and highlights
the AF frames, from 9 available points, that it will
use to determine the focus.
OFF
The camera focuses using the center AF frame.
This is convenient for focusing on a specific part
of a subject with greater certainty.
C/)

• The AF frame appears as follows (when the LCD monitor is
on) when the shutter button is pressed halfway.
- Green:

- Yellow:
Focusing difficulty (AiAF set to [Off])
- No Display: Focusing difficulty (AiAF set to [On])
49
• The following occurs when [Face Detect] is selected.
- The camera displays up to three frames where it has
detected a face. At this point, the frame the camera
judges to be the main subject appears in white while the
others appear in gray. Pressing the shutter button
halfway displays up to 9 green AF frames.
- If no white frame displays and all the frames appear in
gray, images will be shot using the [On] option rather
than [Face Detect].
- The camera may mistakenly identify non-human subjects
as a face. If this occurs, switch to the [On] or [Off] option.
- Faces may not be detected in the following instances.
Examples:
• Faces near the screen edges or faces that appear
extremely small, large, dark or bright in relation to the
overall image.
• Faces turned to the side or at a diagonal, or faces with
a portion hidden.

Metering
Methods
[]
Evaluative
Appropriate for standard shooting conditions,
including backlit scenes. The camera divides
images into several zones for metering. It evaluates
complex lighting conditions, such as the position of
the subject, the brightness, the direct light, and the
backlighting, and adjusts the settings to the correct
exposure for the main subject.
[]
Center
Weighted
Average
Averages the light metered from the entire frame,
but gives greater weight to the subject matter at the
center.
[]
Spot
oo
Meters the area within the spot AE point at the
center of the LCD monitor. Use this setting when
you want to set the exposure on the subject in the
center of the monitor.
The metering method is fixed to [Evaluative] in the Long
Shutter mode (p. 57).
55
Adjust the exposure compensation to a positive value to avoid
making the subject too dark when it is backlit or shot against a
bright background. Adjust the exposure compensation to a negative
value to avoid making the subject too bright in night shots or when
shot against a dark background.
To Cancel the Exposure Compensation
Restore the compensation value to [0].
In =,It mode, the exposure shift can be set/canceled
56
(p. 44).
You can set the shutter speed to a slow setting to make dark
subjects appear brighter.

The following types of
memory cards are used.
- Slow recording cards.
- Cards formatted on a
different camera or a
computer.
- Cards which have had
images recorded and
erased repeatedly.
• Although the recording time may not
display properly during shooting, the
movie will be recorded correctly on
the memory card. Recording time
will display properly if you format the
memory card in this camera
(excluding slow recording memory
cards) (p. 29).
There is insufficient free
space in the camera's
built-in memory,
• Try the following procedures.
- Format the card with a low level
format before shooting (p. 29).
- Lower the recording pixets or
frame rate (p. 45).
- Use a high-speed memory card
(SDC-512MSH, etc.).

Battery charge is low.
Recharge it as soon as
possible if it will be used for
an extended period.
Battery charge is insufficient to
operate the camera. Replace
the battery immediately.
battery pack
Keep the battery terminals clean at all times.
Dirty terminals may cause poor contact between the battery and
camera. Polish the terminals with a soft cotton swab before
charging or using the battery.
At low temperatures,
battery performance may be reduced
and the low battery icon (_1) may appear earlier than usual.
Under these conditions, revive the battery by warming it in a
pocket immediately before use.
However, ensure that there are no metallic items in the
pocket that could cause a short circuit, such as a key ring,
etc.
The battery may be short circuiting.
Do not allow any metal objects
such as key rings to touch the
(_) and (_) terminals (Fig. A).
To carry the battery or store it
during periods of disuse, always
replace the terminal cover (Fig.
B).
These conditions can damage the
battery.

to use it in the camera until it is
depleted and to store it in an indoor location with low
relative humidity and between the temperatures of 0 - 30 °C
(32 - 86 °F).
Storing a fully charged battery for long periods of time (about one
year) may shorten its life cycle or affect its performance, tf you do
not use the battery for long periods of time, charge it fully and
discharge it in the camera about once a year before returning it
to storage.
• Since this is a lithium-ion battery, you need not discharge it
before recharging.
• It takes approximately 2 hours 5 minutes to fully charge the
battery from a depleted state (based on Canon's testing
standards).
• Charging it within a temperature range of 5 - 40 °C (41 - 104
°F) is recommended.
• Charge times may vary according to the ambient temperature
and the battery's charge state.
• You are advised to charge the battery on the day of use, or
one day before, to ensure a full charge.
Even charged batteries continue to discharge naturally.
• If the performance of the battery diminishes substantially
even when it is fully charged, its life has been exceeded and
it should be replaced.

Memory cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not
bend them, apply force to them, or subject them to shocks
or vibration.
Do not attempt to disassemble or alter the memory card.
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.
Do not peel away the original label on the memory card or
cover it with another label or sticker.
When writing on the memory card, do not use a pencil or
ball-point pen. Only use a soft point pen (e.g. felt-tip pen).
Do not use or store memory cards in the following
locations.
• Locations subject to dust or sand
• Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures
Since some or all of the data recorded on the memory card
may be corrupted or erased by electrical noise, static
electricity, or camera or card malfunction, making a backup
copy of important data is recommended.
• Please
note
that formatting (initializing) an memory card
erases all data, including protected images.
• You are recommended to use memory cards that have been
formatted in your camera.
• The card supplied with the camera may be used without further
formatting.
• When the camera is malfunctioning, a corrupted memory card
might be the cause. Reformatting the memory card may solve
the problem.
• When a non-Canon brand memory card is malfunctioning,
reformatting it may solve the problem.
• Memory cards formatted in other cameras, computers, or
peripheral devices may not operate correctly in this camera.
When that happens, reformat the memory card with this
camera.
• If formatting in the camera does not work properly, turn the
camera off and re-insert the memory card. Then turn the
camera back on and format again.
• Data on a card is not completely erased even when the card
is formatted or images are erased because these processes
merely change the file management data. Please note this
fact when transferring ownership or disposing of cards.
Take care to destroy the card when disposing of it to prevent
the leakage of personal data.
