Formatting or erasing data on a memory card merely changes the file
management information on the card and does not ensure its contents
are completely erased. Be careful when transferring or disposing of a
memory card. When disposing of a memory card, take precautions such
as physically destroying the card to prevent personal information leaks.
The total capacity of the memory card displayed in the formatting screen
may be less than indicated on the memory card.

image may be blurry.
If you just press the shutter button fully without pausing halfway, the
image may not be in focus.

Troubleshooting
Image is blurred.
• Press the shutter button halfway to focus on the subject, then press fully to
shoot (p. 23).
• Shoot the subject within the focusing distance (p. 173).
• Set the [AF-assist Beam] to [On] (p. 146).
• Confirm that functions which you do not intend to use (macro, etc.) are not set.
• Shoot using the focus lock or AF lock (pp. 79, 85).
Even when you press the shutter button halfway, the AF frame
does not appear, and the camera does not focus.
• If you center on the light and dark contrasting area of the subject and push the
shutter button halfway, or repeatedly push the shutter button halfway, the frame
will appear and the camera will focus.
Subject is too dark.
•
•
•
•
Raise the flash and shoot (p. 69).
Adjust the brightness with exposure compensation (p. 69).
Adjust the brightness with the i-Contrast function (pp. 96, 135).
Use the AE lock, or spot metering to shoot (p. 90).
Y
P
O
Subject is too bright (overexposed).
•
•
•
•
Lower the flash to set it to ! (p. 25).
Adjust the brightness with exposure compensation (p. 69).
Use the AE lock, or spot metering to shoot (p. 90).
Reduce the light illuminating the subject.
C
Image is dark even though the flash fired (p. 26).
• Increase the ISO speed (p. 73).
• Shoot within an appropriate distance for flash photography (p. 69).
• Adjust the flash exposure compensation or the flash output (pp. 98, 99).
Image taken using the flash is too bright (overexposed).
• Shoot within an appropriate distance for flash photography (p. 69).
• Lower the flash to set it to ! (p. 25).
• Adjust the flash exposure compensation or the flash output (pp. 98, 99).
White dots appear on the image when shooting with the flash.
• Light from the flash has reflected off dust particles or other objects in the air.
Image appears rough or grainy.
• Shoot with the ISO speed on a lower setting (p. 73).
• Depending on the Shooting mode, when shooting in a high ISO speed the image
may appear rough or grainy (pp. 59, 61).
Eyes appear red (p. 97).
• Set the [Red-Eye Lamp] to [On] (p. 147). When shooting with the flash, the lamp
(on the front of the camera) lights (p. 42), and for approximately 1 second while
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.
162
Troubleshooting
Recording images to the memory card takes a long time, or
continuous shooting slows down.
• Perform a low-level format of the memory card in the camera (p. 53)
When you can’t make settings for shooting functions or FUNC. menu.
• The items in which settings can be made differ depending on the shooting
mode. Refer to “Functions Available in Each Shooting Mode” (p. 166).
Shooting movies
Correct shooting time does not display, or stops.
• Format the memory card in the camera, or use a memory card capable of
recording at high speeds. Even when the shooting time does not display
properly, the recorded video will be the length that it was actually shot (p. 32).
The buffer warning (p. 44) indicates full, and shooting
automatically stopped.
Y
P
O
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. 53).
• Change the image quality setting (p. 108).
• Use a memory card capable of recording at high speeds (p. 108).
Playback
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.
C
Playback stops, or audio cuts out.
• Use a memory card that has been formatted on this camera (p. 53).
• If you copy a movie to a memory card that reads slowly, playback may interrupt
momentarily.
• Depending on its capabilities, the computer may drop frames, or the audio may
cut out, when playing movies.
Computer
Cannot transfer images to a computer.
The problem may be solved by performing the following operations to slow down
transfer speed when the camera is connected to a computer by a cable.
• Press and hold down the n button, then press the o and m buttons
simultaneously. Choose [B] when it appears on the screen, then press the m
button.

Handling Precautions
Equipment
• 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 or motors 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 LCD
monitor, 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
LCD monitor.
• Use a commercially available blower brush to remove dust from the lens.
For stubborn dirt contact the closest 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 battery and
memory card, and wait until the moisture has completely evaporated
before resuming use.
Memory Cards
C
Y
P
O
• A memory card is a high-precision electronic device. Do not bend, apply
force or subject it to strong impacts. Doing so may corrupt image data
recorded on the memory card.
• Do not spill liquids on the memory card. Do not touch the memory card’s
terminals with your hands or metallic objects.
• Do not store memory cards near a TV, speakers or other devices that
generate magnetic fields or static electricity. Doing so may corrupt image
data recorded on the memory card.
• Do not store memory cards in hot, humid or dusty locations.
