Using an Eye-Fi Card
Still Images
Movies
Before using an Eye-Fi card, always confirm that local use is permitted
(= 2).
Inserting a prepared Eye-Fi card enables automatic wireless transfer of
images to a computer or uploading to a photo-sharing website.
Images are transferred by the Eye-Fi card. Refer to the card’s user manual
or contact the manufacturer for instructions on preparing and using cards or
resolving transfer problems.
• When using an Eye-Fi card, keep the following points in mind.
- Cards may continue to transmit radio waves even when [Eye-Fi
trans.] is set to [Disable] (= 97). Remove the Eye-Fi card before
entering hospitals, aircraft, or other areas where transmission is
prohibited.
- When troubleshooting image transfer issues, check the card and
computer settings. For details, refer to the card’s user manual.
- Poor Eye-Fi connections may cause image transfer to take a long
time, and transfer may be interrupted in some cases.
- Eye-Fi cards may become hot, due to their transfer functions.
- Battery power will be consumed faster than in normal use.
- Camera operation may become sluggish. To resolve this,
try setting [Eye-Fi trans.] to [Disable].

Troubleshooting
Strange display on the screen under low light (= 21).
Strange display on the screen when shooting.
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.
Power
• The screen may flicker under fluorescent or LED lighting.
Nothing happens when the ON/OFF button is pressed.
• Confirm that the battery pack is charged (= 11).
• Confirm that the battery pack is inserted facing the correct way (= 12).
• Confirm that the memory card/battery cover is fully closed (= 13).
• Dirty battery terminals reduce battery performance. Try cleaning the terminals with a
cotton swab and reinserting the battery pack a few times.
The battery pack runs out of power quickly.
• Battery performance decreases at low temperatures. Try warming the battery pack 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 pack still runs out of power soon after
charging, it has reached the end of its life. Purchase a new battery pack.
The lens is not retracted.
• Do not open the memory card/battery cover while the camera is on. Close the cover,
turn the camera on, and then turn it off again (= 13).
The battery pack is swollen.
• Battery swelling is normal and does not pose any safety concerns. However, if
battery swelling prevents the battery pack from fitting in the camera, contact a Canon
Customer Support Help Desk.
Display on a TV
• Purplish banding may appear on the screen if you compose a shot that includes a
bright light source.
No date stamp is added to images.
• Configure the [Date Stamp
] (= 34) setting. Note that date stamps are not
added to images automatically, merely because you have configured the [Date/Time]
setting (= 13).
• Date stamps are not added in shooting modes (= 109) in which this setting cannot
be configured (= 34).
[h] flashes on the screen when the shutter button is pressed, and
shooting is not possible (= 28).
[
] is displayed when the shutter button is pressed halfway (= 28).
• Set the flash mode to [h] (= 56).
• Increase the ISO speed (= 50).

No AF frames are displayed and the camera does not focus when the
shutter button is pressed halfway.
• To have AF frames displayed and the camera focus correctly, try composing the
shot with higher-contrast subject areas centered before you press the shutter button
halfway. Otherwise, try pressing the shutter button halfway repeatedly.
Subjects in shots look too dark.
• Set the flash mode to [h] (= 56).
• Adjust brightness by using exposure compensation (= 48).
• Adjust contrast by using i-Contrast (= 50, 71).
• Use AE lock or spot metering (= 49).
Subjects look too bright, highlights are washed-out.
• Set the flash mode to [!] (= 33).
• Adjust brightness by using exposure compensation (= 48).
Subjects are affected by red-eye (= 36).
• Set [Lamp Setting] to [On] (= 38) to activate the red-eye reduction lamp (= 4)
in flash shots. Note that while the red-eye reduction lamp is on (for about one
second), it is not possible to shoot, because the lamp is counteracting red-eye.
For best results, have subjects look at the red-eye reduction lamp. Also try increasing
the lighting in indoor scenes and shooting at closer range.
• Edit images using red-eye correction (= 71).
Recording to the memory card takes too long, or continuous shooting
is slower.

Handling Precautions
• The camera is a high-precision electronic device. Avoid dropping it or
subjecting it to strong impact.
• Never bring the camera near magnets, motors, or other devices that
generate strong electromagnetic fields, which may cause malfunction or
erase image data.
• If water droplets or dirt adheres to the camera or screen, wipe with a dry
soft cloth, such as an eyeglass cloth. Do not rub hard or apply force.
Specifications
Camera Effective
Pixels (Max.)
Lens Focal Length
• 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 pack and memory card, and wait until the moisture has
evaporated before resuming use.
• Before long-term battery storage, use up the battery pack’s remaining
charge, remove it from the camera, and store it in a plastic bag or similar
container. Storing a partially charged battery pack over extended periods
(about a year) may shorten its life or affect performance.
