objects.
• Be careful not to bump or push strongly on the lens.
This could lead to injury or damage the camera.
• In regular use, small amounts of smoke may be emitted from the

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.
• Be careful not to subject the screen to strong impacts.
If the screen cracks, injury may result from the broken fragments.
• Remove and store the battery when you are not using the camera.
If the battery is left inside the camera, damage caused by leakage may
occur.
• When using the flash, be careful not to cover it with your fingers or
clothing.
This could result in burns or damage to the flash.
• Before you discard the battery, cover the terminals with tape or other
insulators.
Contacting other metal materials may lead to fire or explosions.
• Avoid using, placing or storing the product in the following places:
-Places subject to direct sunlight
-Places subject to temperatures above 40 °C (104 °F)
-Humid or dusty areas
These could cause leakage, overheating or an explosion of the battery,
resulting in electrical shock, fire, burns or other injuries.
High temperatures may cause deformation of the camera or battery charger
casing.

Scene Icons
• A flashing [ ] icon warns that images are more likely to be blurred
by camera shake. In this case, mount the camera on a tripod or take
other measures to keep it still.
• If your shots are dark despite the flash firing, move closer to the
subject. For details on the flash range, see “Flash Range” (= 137).
• The subject may be too close if the camera only beeps once when
you press the shutter button halfway. For details on the focusing
range (shooting range), see “Shooting Range” (= 137).
• To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may be
activated when shooting in low-light conditions.
• A blinking [h] icon displayed when you attempt to shoot indicates that
shooting is not possible until the flash has finished recharging. Shooting
can resume as soon as the flash is ready, so either press the shutter
button all the way down and wait, or release it and press it again.
• You can change how long images are displayed after shots (= 63).

C
• The camera may become warm when shooting movies repeatedly
over an extended period. This does not indicate damage.
Microphone
Still Images
• Keep your fingers away from the
microphone while shooting movies.
Blocking the microphone may prevent
audio from being recorded or may
cause the recording to sound muffled.
• Avoid touching camera controls other than the movie button when
shooting movies, because sounds made by the camera will be recorded.
Movies
In [
] mode, shooting scenes determined by the camera are indicated
by the icon displayed, and corresponding settings are automatically
selected for optimal focusing, subject brightness, and color.

In [

subjects you are aiming the camera at.
• A white frame is displayed around the subject (or person’s face)
determined by the camera to be the main subject, and gray frames are
displayed around other detected faces. Frames follow moving subjects
within a certain range to keep them in focus.
However, if the camera detects subject movement, only the white frame
will remain on the screen.
• When you are pressing the shutter button halfway and the camera
detects subject movement, a blue frame is displayed, and the focus and
image brightness are constantly adjusted (Servo AF).

Security Precautions
Because Wi-Fi uses radio waves to transmit signals, security precautions
more stringent than when using a LAN cable are required.
Keep the following points in mind when using Wi-Fi.
• Only use networks you are authorized to use.
This product searches for Wi-Fi networks in the vicinity and displays the
results on the screen. Networks you are not authorized to use (unknown
networks) may also be displayed. However, attempting to connect to or
using such networks could be regarded as unauthorized access. Be sure
to use only networks you are authorized to use, and do not attempt to
connect to other unknown networks.
Y
P
O
If security settings have not been properly set, the following problems may
occur.
• Transmission monitoring
Third parties with malicious intent may monitor Wi-Fi transmissions and
attempt to acquire the data you are sending.
• Unauthorized network access
Third parties with malicious intent may gain unauthorized access to
the network you are using to steal, modify, or destroy information.
Additionally, you could fall victim to other types of unauthorized access
such as impersonation (where someone assumes an identity to gain
access to unauthorized information) or springboard attacks (where
someone gains unauthorized access to your network as a springboard to
cover their tracks when infiltrating other systems).

Glossary
Wi-Fi related terms are explained here. Also refer to the explanations of
terms given in the respective sections of this guide.
• Access point
A device that relays radio wave signals to create a Wi-Fi network. This
term also refers to a network that you can use to connect to the Internet
via Wi-Fi.
• Firewall
This is a system that protects networks from computer viruses, external
unauthorized access, and security threats. This is set on the Wi-Fi router
or computer.
• SSID/ESSID
Preconfigured numbers and letters used to identify a specific access
point. Also called the “access point name” or “network name”.
• Encryption key
This is a key used to encrypt data for transmission to and from an access
point.
• IP address
This is an address used to identify a device within a network.
• MAC address
This is a unique address pre-assigned to a network device. It is also
referred to as a “physical address”.

Troubleshooting
If you think there is a problem with the camera, first check the following.
If the items below do not solve your problem, contact a Canon Customer
Support Help Desk.
Note that the following display problems are not recorded in still images but are
recorded in movies.
• The screen may darken under bright light.
• The screen may flicker under fluorescent or LED lighting.
Power
• Purplish banding may appear on the screen if you compose a shot that includes a
bright light source.
Nothing happens when the power button is pressed.
No date stamp is added to images.
• Confirm that the battery is charged (= 10).
• Confirm that the memory card/battery cover is fully closed (= 11).
• Dirty battery terminals reduce battery performance. Try cleaning the terminals with a
cotton swab and reinserting the battery a few times.
The battery is depleted quickly.
• Battery performance decreases at low temperatures. Try warming the battery a little
by putting it in your pocket, for example, ensuring that the terminals do not touch any
metal objects.
• If these measures do not help and the battery is still depleted soon after charging, it
has reached the end of its life. Purchase a new battery.
The battery is swollen.
C
• Battery swelling is normal and does not pose any safety concerns. However, if battery
swelling prevents the battery from fitting in the camera, contact a Canon Customer
Support Help Desk.

Y
P
O
• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to clean the camera or
screen.
• 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.

FCC/IC Notice
Model: PC1953 (including WLAN Module Model WM219, FCC ID: AZD219)
The available scientific evidence does not show that any health problems are
associated with using low power wireless devices. There is no proof, however, that
these low power wireless devices are absolutely safe. Low power Wireless devices
emit low levels of radio frequency energy (RF) in the microwave range while being
used. Whereas high levels of RF can produce health effects (by heating tissue),
exposure to low-level RF that does not produce heating effects causes no known
adverse health effects. Many studies of low-level RF exposures have not found any
biological effects. Some studies have suggested that some biological effects might
occur, but such findings have not been confirmed by additional research. This model
has been tested and found to comply with FCC/IC radiation exposure limits set forth
for an uncontrolled equipment and meets the FCC radio frequency (RF) Exposure
Guidelines in Supplement C to OET65 and RSS-102 of the IC radio frequency (RF)
Exposure rules.
