specification, but occasionally non-performing pixels may appear as bright
or dark dots. This is not a malfunction and has no effect on the recorded
image.

against scratches during shipment. If so, remove the film before using the
camera.
Camera Body Temperature
Please take care when operating the camera for an extended period as the
camera body may become warm. This is not a malfunction.

Y
P
O
• Do not trigger the flash in close proximity to people’s eyes.
Exposure to the intense light produced by the flash could damage eyesight. In particular,
remain at least one 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.
Memory card, day/date battery: Dangerous if swallowed. If this occurs, contact a doctor
immediately.
C
• Do not attempt to disassemble or alter any part of the equipment unless
expressly indicated to do so in this guide.
• To avoid the risk of injury, do not touch the interior of the camera if it has been
dropped or otherwise damaged.
• Stop operating the camera 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
equipment.
• Do not allow liquids or foreign objects to enter the camera.
The above could result in fire or electrical shock.
If liquid or foreign objects come into contact with the camera interior, immediately turn the
camera power off and remove the batteries.
• Use only recommended power sources.
Using other power sources could result in fire or electrical shock.
9
Safety Precautions
Batteries
• Use only recommended batteries.
• Do not place the batteries near or in direct flame.
• Do not let the batteries come into contact with water (e.g. sea water) or other
liquids.
• Do not attempt to disassemble, alter or apply heat to the batteries.
• Avoid dropping or subjecting the batteries to severe impacts.
The above may cause explosions or leaks, resulting in fire, injury and damage to the
surroundings. In the event that a battery leaks and the eyes, mouth, skin or clothing
contacts these substances, immediately flush with water and seek medical assistance.
Other Warnings
• Do not play the supplied CD-ROM(s) in any CD player that does not support
data CD-ROMs.
It is possible to suffer hearing loss from listening with headphones to the loud sounds of
a CD-ROM played on a music CD player. Additionally, playing the CD-ROM(s) in an audio
CD player (music player) could damage the speakers.
Y
P
O
Caution
C
• Be careful not to bang the camera or subject it to strong impacts or shocks
when hanging it by the strap.
• Be careful not to bump or push strongly on the lens.
This could damage the camera or lead to injury.
• Avoid using, placing or storing the camera in the following places.
- Places subject to strong sunlight.
- Places subject to temperatures above 40 °C (104 °F).
- Humid or dusty areas.
These could cause leakage, overheating or an explosion of the batteries, resulting in
electrical shock, fire, burns or other injuries. High temperatures may also cause
deformation of the casing.
• 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.
10
Safety Precautions
Caution
• Do not aim the camera at bright light sources (the sun, etc.).
Doing so may cause malfunctions or damage the image sensor.
• When using the camera on a beach or at a windy location, be careful not to
allow dust or sand to enter the camera.
This may cause the camera to malfunction.
• In regular use, small amounts of smoke may be emitted from the flash.
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.
• Remove and store the batteries when you are not using the camera.
If the batteries are left inside the camera, damage caused by leakage may occur.
• Before you discard batteries, cover the terminals with tape or other insulators.
Contacting other metal materials in waste containers may lead to fire or explosions.

Handling Precautions
• This camera is a high-precision electronic device. Do not drop it or subject
it to strong impacts.
• Never place the camera close to magnets, motors or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields. Exposure to strong magnetic
fields may cause malfunctions or corrupt image data.
• If water droplets have fallen onto, or dirt is stuck on the camera or screen,
wipe with a dry soft cloth or eyeglass wiper. Do not rub or apply force.
• Never use cleaners containing organic solvents to wipe the camera or
screen.
• Use a commercially available blower brush to remove dust from the lens.
For stubborn dirt contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as listed
on the customer support leaflet supplied with your camera.
• When you move the camera rapidly from cold to hot temperatures,
condensation may form on the internal or external surfaces of the camera.
To avoid condensation, put the camera in an airtight, resealable plastic
bag and let it adjust to temperature changes slowly before removing it
from the bag.
• If condensation has formed, stop using the camera immediately.
Continued use may damage the camera. Remove the batteries and
memory card, and wait until the moisture has completely evaporated
before resuming use.

the camera is reducing red-eye, it is not possible to shoot. It is more effective if
the subject is looking directly at the lamp. Even better results can be obtained by
increasing the lighting in indoor settings or approaching closer to the subject.

The camera’s internal memory was insufficient. Try one of the following:
• Perform a low-level format of the memory card in the camera (p. 48).
• Change the image quality setting (p. 80).
• Use a memory card capable of recording at high speeds (p. 80).
Zoom does not operate.

Cannot play back images or movies.
• If the file name or folder structure is changed on a computer, you may not be
able to play back images or movies. Refer to the Software Guide for information
regarding folder structure or file names.
Playback stops, or audio cuts out.
• Use a memory card that has been formatted on this camera (p. 20).
• If you copy a movie to a memory card that reads slowly, playback may interrupt
momentarily.
• Depending on its capabilities, when playing movies, the computer may drop
frames or the audio may cut out.

List of Messages That Appear on the
Screen
If error messages appear on the screen, try one of the following solutions.
No memory card
• The memory card is not installed in the correct direction. Install the memory card
in the correct direction (p. 14).
Memory card locked
• The SD memory card, SDHC memory card or SDXC memory card’s write
protect tab is set to “LOCK”. Unlock the write protect tab (pp. 14, 15).

O
• If the same message appears even when a formatted memory card is installed
in the correct direction, contact your Canon Customer Support Help Desk.
Insufficient space on card
• There is not enough free space on the memory card to shoot (pp. 22, 28, 49, 59,
71, 79) or edit images (pp. 92 – 93). Erase the images (pp. 27, 91) to open
space for new images, or insert an empty memory card (p. 14).
Change the batteries (p. 14)
No Image.

have been taken with a different camera may not be magnified, rotated, edited,
or added to a print list.
• Movies cannot be magnified (p. 88).
Exceeded selection limit

images and try again (p. 98).
116
List of Messages That Appear on the Screen
Communication error
• Images could not be transferred to the computer or printed due to the large
amount of images (approx. 1000) stored on the memory card. Use a
commercially available USB card reader to transfer the images. Insert the
memory card into the printer’s card slot to print.
Naming error!
• The folder or image could not be created because there is an image with the
same file name as the folder or image that the camera is attempting to create, or
the highest possible file number has already been reached. In the 3 menu,
change [File Numbering] to [Auto Reset] (p. 102) or format the memory card
(p. 20).
Lens Error
• This error can occur if you hold the lens while it is in motion or when using it in a
location with excessive dust or sand in the air.
• If this error message continues to appear, contact a Canon Customer Support
Help Desk as there may be a problem with the lens.
