from any malfunction of a camera or accessory, including
CompactFlash™ cards, that results in the failure of an image to be
recorded or to be recorded in a format that is machine readable.
Warning Against Copyright Infringement
Please note that Canon digital cameras are intended for personal
use and should never be used in a manner that infringes upon or
contravenes international or domestic copyright laws and
regulations. Please be advised that in certain cases the copying of
images from performances, exhibitions, or commercial properties by
means of a camera or other device may contravene copyright or
other legal rights even if the image was recorded for personal use.
Warranty Limitations
This camera’s warranty is only effective in the country of sale. If a
problem arises while the camera is in use abroad, please convey it
back to the country of sale before proceeding with a warranty claim
to a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
For Canon Customer Support contacts, please see the Canon Limited
Warranty supplied with your camera.
Safety Precautions
z Before using the camera, please ensure that you read and
understand the safety precautions described below. Always
ensure that the camera is operated correctly.
z The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended
to instruct you in the safe and correct operation of the camera and
its accessories to prevent injuries or damage to yourself, other
persons and equipment.
z In the next few pages, the term “equipment” refers primarily to the
camera, its power supply accessories and a separately sold
compact power adapter.
5
Warnings
z Do not aim the camera directly into the sun or at other intense
light sources which could damage your eyesight.
z Do not trigger the flash in close proximity to human or animal
eyes. Exposure to the intense light produced by the flash may
damage eyesight. In particular, remain at least one meter
(39 inches) away from infants when using the flash.
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
the 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 in this guide.
Disassembly or alteration may result in high voltage electrical
shock. Internal inspections, alterations and repairs should be
conducted by qualified service personnel authorized by your
camera distributor or a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
z To avoid the risk of high-voltage electrical shock, do not
touch the flash portion of the camera if it has been damaged.
Similarly, never touch internal portions of the equipment that
become exposed as a result of damage. There is a risk of high
voltage electrical shock. Please take the first opportunity to consult
your camera distributor or a Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
z Stop operating the equipment immediately if it emits smoke
or noxious fumes. Failure to do so may result in fire or electrical
shock. Immediately turn the camera’s power off, remove the
camera battery or unplug the power cord from the power outlet.
Confirm that smoke and fume emissions have ceased.
Please consult your camera distributor or the closest Canon
Customer Support Help Desk.
z Stop operating the equipment if it is dropped or the casing is
damaged. Failure to do so may result in fire or electrical shock.
Immediately turn the camera’s power off, remove the camera battery
or unplug the power cord from the power outlet. Please consult your
camera distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
6
z Do not allow the equipment to come into contact with, or
become immersed in, water or other liquids. Do not allow
liquids to enter the interior. The camera has not been
waterproofed. If the exterior comes into contact with liquids or salt
air, wipe it dry with a soft, absorbent cloth. In the event that water
or other foreign substances enter the interior, immediately turn the
camera’s power off and remove the camera battery or unplug the
power cord from the power outlet. Continued use of the equipment
may result in fire or electrical shock. Please consult your camera
distributor or the closest Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
z Do not use substances containing alcohol, benzene, thinners
or other flammable substances to clean or maintain the
equipment. The use of these substances may lead to fire.
z Remove the power cord on a regular periodic basis and wipe
away the dust and dirt that collects on the plug, the exterior of
the power outlet and the surrounding area. In dusty, humid or
greasy environments, the dust that collects around the plug over
long periods of time may become saturated with humidity and
short-circuit, leading to fire.
z Do not cut, damage, alter or place heavy items on the power
adapter cord. Any of these actions may cause an electrical short
circuit, which may lead to fire or electrical shock.
z Do not handle the power cord if your hands are wet. Handling
it with wet hands may lead to electrical shock. When unplugging
the cord, ensure that you hold the solid portion of the plug. Pulling
on the flexible portion of the cord may damage or expose the wire
and insulation, creating the potential for fires and electrical shocks.
z Use only the recommended power accessories. Use of power
sources not expressly recommended for this equipment may lead
to overheating, distortion of the equipment, fire, electrical shock or
other hazards.
z Do not place the batteries near a heat source or expose them
to direct flame or heat. Neither should you immerse them in
water. Such exposure may damage the batteries and lead to the
leakage of corrosive liquids, fire, electrical shock, explosion or
serious injury.
7
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, or clothing, that comes into contact with the inner
contents of a battery. If the eyes or mouth contact these
substances, immediately flush with water and seek medical
assistance.
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. Use the supplied terminal cover to transport or
store the battery pack.
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 Disconnect the 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 of time may cause the unit to overheat and distort,
resulting in fire.
z The camera terminal of the separately sold 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.
z Exercise due caution when screwing on the separately sold
tele-converter lens, close-up lens and conversion lens
adapter. If they loosen, fall off and shatter, the glass shards may
cause an injury.
8
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 compact power adapter to charge the
battery pack 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 CF card,
and battery or a household power source, 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 battery 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. (Do not
remove the date battery.)

Align the edge of the battery pack with the line on the
battery charger, then slide the battery in the direction
of the arrow.
Battery charger model names and types vary by
region.
(For CG-580)
Plug the battery charger into a power outlet.
(For CB-5L)
Attach the power cord to the battery charger and
plug the other end into a power outlet.
z The charge indicator blinks while the battery pack is charging and
lights steadily once charging is complete.
z After charging, unplug the battery charger and remove the battery
pack.
18
Battery Pack Handling Precautions
z Keep the battery pack and camera terminals (
) clean at
all times. Dirty terminals may cause a poor contact between the
battery pack and camera. Polish the terminals with a tissue or a
dry cloth before charging or using the battery pack.
z Do not cover the battery charger with anything, such as a
tablecloth, cushion or blanket, when it is charging. Heat will build
up internally and possibly lead to fire.
z Do not charge batteries other than Battery Pack BP-511A, BP511, BP-512 or BP-514 with the supplied equipment. This may
cause a malfunction.
z The battery pack continues to discharge a small amount when left
in the camera even with the power turned off. This shortens the
battery life. Remove the battery pack from the camera when it is
not in use.
z Do not allow any metal objects such as keyrings to touch the “ ”
and “ ” terminals (Fig. A), as this can damage the battery pack.
To carry the battery pack, or store it during periods of disuse,
always replace the terminal cover (Fig. B) or place it in the
supplied case and store it in a cool, dry place.
19
Preparing the Camera, Basic Functions
z This is a lithium ion battery pack so there is no need to
completely use or discharge it before recharging. It can be
recharged at any time. However, since the maximum number of
charge cycles is approximately 300 (battery life), you are
recommended to only charge the battery pack after having
discharged it completely to prolong battery life.
z It takes approximately 90 minutes to bring a fully discharged
battery pack to a fully charged state (based on Canon’s testing
standard).
z Charging times will vary according to the surrounding humidity
and battery pack charge state.
z The separately sold Battery Pack BP-511, BP-512 and BP-514
can also be used in this camera.
Charging the Battery Pack (continued)
When using Battery Pack BP-511A or BP-514, you can distinguish
between the discharged battery pack and fully charged battery
pack by changing the direction of the battery cover (Fig. C and D).
Recharge the battery fully before using it again.
Fig. A
Fig. B
Fig. C
Fig. D
Fully Charged Battery
Used Battery
Attach so the blue portion Attach in the
of the battery pack can be opposite way of
seen through the window. Fig. C.
z Even charged battery packs continue to discharge naturally. You
are advised to charge the battery on the day of use, or one day
before, to ensure a full charge.
z Since storing a fully charged battery pack for long periods of time
(about 1 year) can shorten its lifecycle or affect performance, you
are recommended to use the battery pack in the camera until the
symbol displays and to store it at normal temperature (30 °C/
86 °F) or lower. If you do not use the battery pack 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 The camera consumes the battery charge when the power is on
even when a function is not being used. To conserve the battery
charge, be particularly attentive in turning the camera off.
z Although the battery pack’s maximum operating range is 0 to
40 °C (32 to 104 °F), the optimal range is 10 to 30 °C (50 to
86 °F). At cold temperatures, such as those experienced when
skiing, performance will temporarily decline, reducing the usable
time before recharging.
z If the usable time of a battery pack diminishes substantially even
when fully charged, it should be replaced.

CF Card Handling Precautions
Microdrives are a recording medium with a hard disk. Their merits
are a large capacity and a low price per megabyte of capacity.
However, they can be more susceptible to vibrations and shocks
than CF cards, which use durable flash memories. Please be
careful, therefore, not to subject the camera to vibrations or shocks
when using a microdrive, especially while recording or during
playback.
23
Preparing the Camera, Basic Functions
z CF cards are high-precision electronic devices. Do not bend,
force, or subject them to shocks or vibration.
z Do not attempt to disassemble or alter a CF card.
z Moving a CF card rapidly between temperature extremes may
cause condensation to form in the card, leading to potential
malfunctions. To avoid condensation formation, place the CF card
in a sealed plastic bag before moving it into a different
temperature zone and allow it to adjust slowly to the new
temperature.
If condensation forms on the CF card, put it aside until the water
droplets have evaporated completely.
z Place the CF card in the supplied case for storage.
z Do not use or store CF cards in the following types of locations.
• Locations subject to dust or sand
• Locations subject to high humidity and high temperatures
Attaching the Neck Strap
Attach the strap as illustrated on the left.
Pull the strap tight in the buckle so that it
does not slip. Perform the same steps on the
other side of the camera (p. 11).
z Avoid waving the camera about or catching it on other items
when suspending it from the strap.
Attaching the Lens Cap
Attach the lens cap as illustrated on the left.
Always replace the lens cap after use. To
remove the lens cap, press the tabs on the
lens cap and pull.
z Remove the lens cap before turning on the camera’s power.
24
Attaching the Lens Hood
Lens Hood

z If you use the built-in flash when the lens hood is attached, a
portion of the image appears to be blocked by the lens hood and
appears dark.
Attaching the Filter Adapter
If you wish to attach a commercially available filter (58 mm
diameter), attach the filter adapter in advance. Be sure to turn off the
camera before you attach the filter adapter.
Filter Adapter
Attach the filter adapter so
that its z meets the lens’ z,
then turn the filter adapter
clockwise until the lens’ z
meets
.
z The filter adapter is exclusively for use with a filter. If you wish to
attach Close-up Lens 500D (sold separately) to the camera, use
Conversion Lens Adapter LA-DC58C (sold separately) (p. 177).
z Attaching more than one filter at the same time may cause dark
shadows on the image depending on the zoom position.
25
Preparing the Camera, Basic Functions
When shooting backlit scenes without a flash with the lens set to a

Changing the File Format
Mode Dial
The recording file format can be switched to the RAW format before
shooting the image.
With the standard JPEG file format, the camera processes images
after capturing them to produce optimal results. The JPEG format
compresses images so that more can be stored on a single CF card.
However, the compression is irreversible, meaning that the original
image data cannot be recovered after processing.
In contrast, the RAW format records the image data as captured by
the camera’s CCD without further processing. RAW images are
compressed, but the compression is reversible* so that a highquality image can be obtained from the decompressed file without
any loss of image quality. In addition, although a RAW file is larger
than an equivalent JPEG file, it is still only approximately onequarter the size* of an uncompressed RGB TIFF format file, making
it relatively compact.
With standard uncompressed file formats, such as RGB TIFF,
images are processed in the camera and require further processing
by retouching software to adjust the image parameters, which
reduces image quality. With the RAW format, however, the original
data can be used in special software** to adjust the image
parameters (white balance, contrast, sharpness and saturation)
making it possible to maintain the image quality while making
changes. The resolution (3264 x 2448) and compression settings
cannot be adjusted for these images.
* As measured by Canon’s testing standard.
** The bundled software can be used to open or adjust the parameters of
images recorded in the RAW file format. Please consult the Software
Starter Guide for details.

z If the aperture value is shown in red on
the LCD monitor (or in the viewfinder),
the image is underexposed (insufficient

shutter speed, the aperture value is
sometimes changed according to the
zoom position.
z You can change the automatically
selected combinations of shutter speeds
and aperture values without altering the
exposure (p. 105).
z The nature of CCD image sensors is such that noise in the
recorded image increases at slow shutter speeds. This camera,
however, applies special processing to images shot at shutter
speeds slower than 1.3 seconds to eliminate the noise, thereby
producing high-quality images. Nevertheless, a certain amount
of processing time may be required before the next image can be
shot.

Setting the Shutter Speed (continued)
z See page 202 for settings that can be changed in this mode.
z Please note that camera shake becomes a factor at slow shutter
speeds. If the camera shake warning

before shooting.
z The fastest shutter speed for flash synchronization is 1/250
second. The camera automatically resets the shutter speed to
1/250 second if a faster speed is selected.
z The aperture value and shutter speed change according to the
zoom state as follows.

Shooting – Selecting Particular Effects
When you set the aperture in the aperture-priority AE mode, the
camera automatically selects a shutter speed to match the
brightness.
Selecting a lower aperture value (opening the aperture) allows you
to blur the background and create a beautiful portrait. A higher
aperture value (closing it) brings the entire range from foreground to
background into focus. The larger the aperture value, the greater the
range of the image brought into clear focus.

both are set.) To set it from the flash, you are recommended to use
the flash’s manual mode. You can also adjust the flash output
even when the camera is set to the E-TTL automatic flash
exposure compensation mode by changing the flash exposure
compensation setting. In this situation, the +2 step setting fires the
flash at full intensity.
To shoot with the flash, you are recommended to set the white
balance to the
(Flash) setting.
Other Canon Flashes
z Since other flashes fire at full strength, set the shutter speed and
aperture accordingly. Set the shutter speed to 1/125 second or
slower, and set the aperture to a value appropriate to the flash’s
guide number and the distance to the subject.
You are recommended to set the white balance to
(Flash) to
shoot.

• Flash Sync (1st-curtain/2nd-curtain) (2nd-curtain priority with
Speedlite 550EX)
• Daylight Synchro
• Slow Synchro
• Flash Exposure Compensation (When Speedlite 550EX is
used, if flash exposure adjustments are made both from the
camera and the flash, the 550EX’s flash exposure
compensation setting takes precedence when the flash is set to
E-TTL mode. The camera’s flash exposure compensation
setting will not activate.)
• Auto Zoom (Not available with the 220EX)

cause dark shadows on the image.
z When Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX or Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX is
mounted on the camera using only the rear part of Conversion
Lens Adapter LA-DC58C, shooting in telephoto could block flash
light.
z When you are using Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX or Macro Twin
Lite MT-24EX, you can shoot in E-TTL automatic flash exposure
compensation mode just by setting the camera’s shooting mode
to P, Av or Tv.
You are recommended to set the aperture in Av or M mode for
full-fledged macro flash photography.
z The following functions can be used with Macro Ring Lite MR14EX or Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX mounted.
• E-TTL Automatic Flash Exposure Compensation
• FE Lock
• Flash Sync (1st-curtain/2nd-curtain)
(The flash’s 2nd-curtain setting takes precedence.)
• Daylight Synchro
• Slow Synchro
• Flash Exposure Compensation
z When exposure compensation settings are selected on both the
camera and the Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX and Macro Twin Lite
MT-24EX, the macro ring lite setting takes precedence (when in
E-TTL mode) and the camera setting is overridden.

Using the Tele-converter (Sold Separately)/
Close-up Lens (Sold Separately)
The separately sold Conversion Lens Adapter LA-DC58C is required
to use the separately sold Tele-converter TC-DC58A and Close-up
Lens 500D (58 mm) with the camera. Conversion Lens Adapter LADC58C is a combination of rear and front parts, however, use them
as a single, joined unit.
(No other tele-converters and close-up lenses can be used.)
Set [Converter] in the Rec. menu correctly when Conversion Lens
Adapter LA-DC58C or Close-up Lens 500D (58 mm) is mounted on
the camera (p. 180).
z Make sure that the tele-converter/close-up lens is firmly screwed
onto the conversion lens. Injury from glass shards can occur if
the lens loosens and falls off.
z Never aim the tele-converter/close-up lens directly at the sun or
bright lights. There is a risk of damage to eyesight.
When Using a Tripod with Tele-converter TC-DC58A
Mounted on the Camera
z Be sure to attach the tripod to the tele-converter’s tripod socket.
If you attach the tripod to the camera’s tripod socket, there is a
danger that the tripod will fall because of the tele-converter’s
weight, causing damage or injury.

Using the Tele-converter (Sold Separately)/Close-up Lens (Sold Separately) (continued)
Tele-converter TC-DC58A
This 58 mm-threaded diameter magnifying conversion lens is for
taking telephoto shots. The lens changes the focal length of the
camera body’s lens by a factor of 1.5x.
z Use the tele-converter lens with the focal length set to the
maximum telephoto setting. Using the zoom at other settings
may cause dark shadows on the image. If you set [Converter] in
the Rec. menu to [TC-DC58A], the zoom will move to the
telephoto end automatically (p. 180).
z An externally mounted flash may not automatically adjust its
flash coverage when a conversion lens is mounted on the
camera.
z Do not attach filters or lens hoods to the tele-converter.
z If you use the built-in flash, a portion of the image appears to be
blocked by the lens hood.
Close-up Lens 500D (58 mm)
This lens, with a 58 mm-threaded diameter, makes close-up
shooting easier. You can magnify a subject 33 cm (1.0 ft.) away from
the tip of the lens more than by using the camera’s Macro mode.
z Set the focal length of the camera’s lens close to the telephoto
end when using the close-up lens. If you set [Converter] in the
Rec. menu to [500D], the zoom will move to the telephoto end
automatically (p. 180).
z You are recommended to use Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX or
Macro Twin Lite MT- 24EX for flash photography with the closeup lens mounted on the camera.
z If you use the built-in flash, a portion of the image appears to be
blocked and dark.
z Be sure to use Conversion Lens Adapter LA-DC58C when you
attach the close-up lens.
It is possible to attach the close-up lens to the camera using the
supplied filter adapter, however, the camera will not shoot
properly.

Replacing the Date Battery
If the Set Date/Time menu appears when you turn on the camera
power, the date battery charge is low and the date and time settings
have been lost. Please replace the battery with a generic CR2016
lithium coin battery with the following procedures.
Please note that the first date battery may appear to expire
relatively quickly after you purchase the camera. This is
because it is installed in the camera at the point of
manufacture, not when you make the purchase.
z Be particularly careful to keep the date batteries out of the reach
of children. Seek medical assistance immediately if a child
swallows a battery since corrosive battery fluids could damage
the stomach or intestinal wall.
