Safety Precautions
• Before using the product, please ensure that you read the safety precautions
described below. Always ensure that the product is used correctly.
• The safety precautions noted on the following pages are intended to
prevent injuries to yourself and other persons, or damage to the equipment.
• Be sure to also check the guides included with any separately sold
accessories you use.
Warning
Denotes the possibility of serious injury or death.
• 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 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.
• Do not let the product come into contact with water (e.g. sea water)
or other liquids.
• Do not allow liquids or foreign objects to enter the camera.
This could result in electrical shock or fire.

• Use only the recommended battery.
• Do not place the battery near or in direct flame.
• Unplug the power cord periodically, and using a dry cloth, wipe away
any dust and dirt that has collected on the plug, the exterior of the
power outlet, and the surrounding area.
• Do not handle the power cord with wet hands.
• Do not use the equipment in a manner that exceeds the rated capacity
of the electrical outlet or wiring accessories. Do not use if the power
cord or plug are damaged, or not fully plugged into the outlet.
• Do not allow dirt or metal objects (such as pins or keys) to contact
the terminals or plug.
The battery may explode or leak, resulting in electrical shock or fire. This could cause
injury and damage the surroundings. In the event that a battery leaks and the battery
electrolyte contacts eyes, mouth, skin or clothing, immediately flush with water.
• 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.
• Turn the camera off in places where camera use is prohibited.
The electromagnetic waves emitted by the camera may interfere with the
operation of electronic instruments and other devices. Exercise adequate
caution when using the camera in places where use of electronic devices is
restricted, such as inside airplanes and medical facilities.
• Do not aim the camera at bright light sources (such as the sun on a
clear day).
Doing so may damage the image sensor.
IXUS 140
IXUS 135
• 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 an audio CD player (music player).
Additionally, this could damage the speakers.
Caution
Denotes the possibility of injury.
• When holding the camera by the strap, be careful not to bang it, subject
it to strong impacts or shocks, or let it get caught on other objects.
• Be careful not to bump or push strongly on the lens.
This could lead to injury or damage the camera.
• 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.
• The slideshow transition effects may cause discomfort when viewed
for prolonged periods.
Caution
Denotes the possibility of damage to the equipment.
• 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 product 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 battery when you are not using the camera.
If the battery is left inside the camera, damage caused by leakage may occur.

A variety of frames are displayed once the camera detects 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

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).

use digital zoom for up to about 32x enlargement.

The camera zooms in even closer on the
subject.
• Moving the zoom lever will display the zoom bar (which indicates
the zoom position). The color of the zoom bar will change depending
on the zoom range.
-White range: optical zoom range where the image will not appear grainy.
-Yellow range: digital zoom range where the image is not noticeably
grainy (ZoomPlus).
-Blue range: digital zoom range where the image will appear grainy.
Because the blue range will not be available at some resolution
settings (= 43), the maximum zoom factor can be achieved by
following step 1.
• Focal length when optical and digital zoom are combined is as follows (35mm
film equivalent).
28 – 896 mm (28 – 224 mm with optical zoom alone)
