• Take some initial test shots and play them back to make sure the images
were recorded correctly. Please note that Canon Inc., its subsidiaries and
affiliates, and its distributors are not liable for any consequential damages
arising from any malfunction of a camera or accessory, including memory
cards, that results in the failure of an image to be recorded or to be

• The images recorded with this camera are intended for personal use. Do
not record images that infringe upon copyright laws without the prior
permission of the copyright holder. 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 shot for personal use.

• Use only the recommended batteries.
• Do not place the batteries near or in direct flame.
The batteries may explode or leak, resulting in electrical shock or fire. This could cause
injury and damage the surroundings. In the event that batteries leak and the battery
electrolyte contacts eyes, mouth, skin or clothing, immediately flush with water.
• 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 play the supplied CD-ROM(s) in any CD player that does not support data

Safety Precautions
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.
• 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.
• Avoid using, placing or storing the product in the following places:
- Places subject to strong sunlight

• Do not aim the camera at bright light sources (such as the sun on a clear day).
Doing so may 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 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 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 the batteries, cover the terminals with tape or other
insulators.
Contacting other metal materials may lead to fire or explosions.
• Do not charge batteries of different types at the same time, or use older batteries
together with newer batteries.
• Do not insert the batteries with the + and – terminals reversed.
This may cause the product to malfunction.

Formatting Memory Cards
Before you use a new memory card or one that has been formatted in other
devices, you should format the card with this camera.
Formatting (initializing) a memory card erases all data on the memory card.
As you cannot retrieve the erased data, exercise adequate caution before
formatting the memory card.
Before formatting an Eye-Fi card (see Camera User Guide), be sure to install
the software contained on the card to a computer.
Display the menu.
z Press the n button.
Choose [Format].
z Move the zoom lever to choose the 3 tab.

Format the memory card.
z Press the op buttons or turn the 5 dial
to choose [OK], then press the m button
to start formatting.
z When formatting ends, [Memory card
formatting complete] appears on the
screen. Press the m button.
15
Pressing the Shutter Button
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.
• Perform a low-level format (see Camera User Guide) of the memory card
when the camera does not operate properly, the recording/reading speed
of a memory card has dropped, when continuous shooting speed slows
down, or when movie recording stops suddenly.

lightly (halfway) to focus, then press fully to shoot.

takes the shot.
z Since the shot is being taken while the
shutter sound plays, be careful not to move
the camera.
Does the length of the shutter sound change?
• Since the time required to shoot differs depending on the scene you want to
take, the length of the shutter sound may change.
• If the camera or subject moves while the shutter sound is playing, the recorded
image may be blurry.
If you shoot without pressing the shutter button halfway, the image may not
be in focus.

Taking Pictures (Smart Auto)
What if...
• What if the color and brightness of the images do not turn out as
expected?
The scene icon (see Camera User Guide) that appears on the screen may not
match the actual scene, and you may not obtain the expected results. If this
happens, try shooting in G mode (see Camera User Guide).
• What if white and gray frames appear when you point the camera toward
a subject?
A white frame appears on the face or subject that the camera detected as the
main subject, while gray frames appear on other detected faces. The frames will
follow the subjects within a certain range.
If the subject moves, however, the gray frames will disappear, leaving only the
white frame.
• What if a frame does not appear on the subject you want to shoot?
The subject may not be detected, and frames may appear on the background.
If this happens, try shooting in G mode (see Camera User Guide).
• What if a blue frame appears when you press the shutter button halfway?
A blue frame appears when a moving subject is detected; the focus and
exposure will continuously adjust (Servo AF).
• What if a flashing
appears?
Attach the camera to a tripod so that the camera does not move and blur the
image.
• What if the camera does not play any sounds?
You may have been pressing the l button while turning on the camera,
which will turn off all sounds. To turn the sounds on, press the n button to
choose [Mute] in the 3 tab, then press the qr buttons to choose [Off].
• What if the image comes out dark even if the flash fired when shooting?
The subject is too far away for the flash to reach. The effective flash range is
approximately 50 cm – 3.0 m (1.6 – 9.8 ft.) at maximum wide angle (j), and
approximately 1.0 – 2.0 m (3.3 – 6.6 ft.) at maximum telephoto (i).
• What if the camera beeps once when the shutter button is pressed
halfway?
Your subject may be too close. When the camera is at maximum wide angle
(j), move about 1 cm (0.4 in.) or more away from your subject and shoot.
Move about 1 m (3.3 ft.) or more away when the camera is at maximum
telephoto (i).
• What if the lamp lights when the shutter button is pressed halfway?
To reduce red-eye and to assist in focusing, the lamp may light when shooting
in low light conditions.
